Water damaged chimney.

 The Chimney is a dominant and interesting architectural feature on the exterior of our homes, and adds an attractive element of interest and design.  The Fireplace in the home is a central feature were we gather around and entertain friends and family, and enjoy good times. Those of us who have a Fireplace in our homes place a high value on them, Its hard to imagine coming home on cold winter night  and cuddling up to a furnace.  Although Fireplace are no longer necessary for our survival, they do retain an important part of most current popular Construction design.  Enhancements such as Glass Doors, Gas Log Lighters,  Fireplace Exhaust Fans, and Out Side Air Intake will increase the efficiency of your Fireplace and Chimney. 

 

Keeping Your Chimney in good working order is very important.  Keep a sharp eye out for Chimney Leaks especially around the Chimney  flashing, this is one of the main places that a chimney will leak.  You can enjoy your Fireplace for many years.  Masonry chimneys can last for hundreds of years if they are maintained.  As a Seattle Masonry Contractor we repair quite a few fireplaces every year.  Here are some points to consider in the maintenance of your Chimney:  Our Chimneys are a lot like us, they do well when we feed them right.  Always burn clean dry wood, green or wet wood will build up creosote in the Flue Liners and that can lead to a Chimney Fire.   When burning any wood don't restrict the airflow all the time. Every so often, open the air flow and burn a good hot fire for a while.  This will burn off some of the creosote build up, thus a safer Chimney.   Have your Fireplace Cleaned and inspected by a certified Masonry Professional ever year.  Summer is a good time of year to do this, it's easy to see any damage that might have accrued the winter before and a good time to make any needed repairs that need to be done this year.  Brick Tuckpointing can be cleaned and sealed better at this time of year than in the winter.
