Masonry chimney construction must be carefully done. If you hire someone that’s not qualified, it’s possible for your house to burn down. If improperly installed, the chimney may not do what it was intended to do like keep our house warm, but instead, could become destructive. Different types of chimneys are designed to allow combustion by products to be vented away from the structure so as not to cause any damage to it. This option is not only more pleasant to look at, it also lasts longer.

Common Chimney Issues
Extreme temperature changes and exposure to the elements are just a few ways your chimney can become damaged over time. In the case of brick or masonry chimneys, when cracks occur, the chimney can quickly become unsafe. Rain can actually enter through the cracks in the chimney, which can lead to extensive damage on the interior of your home. As the cracks expand, the structure of the chimney will become compromised, leading to worse deterioration.
In addition, broken flue pieces caused by deterioration of the chimney structure can cause toxic gas to get stuck inside. When this occurs, you run a serious risk of exposure to poisonous gas like carbon monoxide.
Even more modern chimneys connected to natural gas furnaces which produce less heat in the chimney require liner changes to maintain efficiency. No matter what chimney repairs you may need, you can count on Taves to get the job done right.

We offer extensive chimney repairs and maintenance services that will keep your chimney working properly inside and looking great on the outside.

By enlisting our experienced team for chimney repairs and maintenance, you can greatly reduce the risk of being exposed to toxic gas indoors. Proper chimney maintenance can also reduce the risk of sudden fires being started in a clogged chimney.
And while our team is conducting an inspection and repairs on your chimney, we can scope out other potential problem areas and make recommendations for further repairs or the removal of a problematic chimney.
Of course nothing lasts forever and that’s where we will take the necessary steps in inspecting, creating a plan and sharing with you what needs to be done.

Is it necessary to have my chimney cleaned?
Yes, chimneys require regular cleanings and inspections to ensure they are safe to use. Creosote, soot, and other types of debris can accumulate in your chimney. This buildup can be problematic as it can cause blockages that reduce fireplace efficiency and increase the flammability of your chimney’s interior, posing severe hazards. Additionally, regular cleanings and inspections disturb the area, reducing the chances of unwanted critters nesting inside your home.
How often should I clean my chimney?
Annual chimney cleanings are recommended; however, if you use your chimney on a regular basis year-round, then more frequent cleanings may be needed.
When does a chimney need to be rebuilt?
Sometimes, a full chimney tear down and rebuild is the best course of action. If a chimney has no cap, a damaged crown, severe leaking, damaged flashing, or has extensive structural flaws such as leaning and crumbling, a chimney rebuild may be necessary.
How much does a masonry chimney repair cost?
