Why Chimney Maintenance Is Crucial

Bath Chimney repairs Chimney Rebuilding

Many homeowners take their chimneys for granted and assume they don’t require regular maintenance. This could not be further from the truth! Preventative chimney maintenance in Bath should be conducted at least once a year to identify potential issues before they turn into major (and costly) repairs.

Chimneys, including the chimney stack and chimney pots, deteriorate from the inside out due to exposure to weather, creosote buildup from wood-burning fireplaces, and normal wear and tear. Cracks in the masonry or damaged flue liners can allow rain, birds, insects and rodents to enter your chimney. Creosote buildup also increases the risk of a dangerous chimney fire.

By having your new or existing chimney inspected and cleaned annually by our local roofing and chimney maintenance team, a technician can identify and carry out chimney repair work on small problems before they worsen. This approach to proactive chimney repair and maintenance prevents extensive chimney damage and improves home safety. Don’t wait until there’s an emergency to get in touch with a chimney professional!

 Common Chimney
Issues We Repair

Bath Chimney Repairs

Our skilled roofers have seen and repaired just about every type of chimney problem over the years. Here are some of the most common issues we address:

Damaged Masonry

Brick and mortar chimneys are susceptible to damage from weather, age, animals, creosote fires and more. We carry out repointing in Bath, replacing damaged mortar and cracked or missing bricks to prevent further deterioration.

Leaking Chimneys

Leaks due to deteriorated mortar, cracked chimney crowns, or damaged flue liners can cause significant interior water damage. We identify and seal all sources of leaks, ensuring high quality chimney repair work is carried out.

Drafting Issues

A lack of sufficient draft makes it difficult for smoke and gases to exit your chimney. We troubleshoot draft issues and provide solutions like chimney relining, providing a quality job for every client.

Chimney Fires

Creosote buildup causes dangerous chimney fires every year. We inspect your chimney for creosote and clean it to reduce your risk.

Wildlife Infestations

Raccoons, birds, bees, and other critters can nest in neglected chimneys. We safely remove them, seal holes, and install chimney caps, ensuring your chimney is safe from wildlife.

 Our Chimney Repair Process

At Empire Roofing Bath, we take a comprehensive approach to chimney repair that not only fixes existing issues but prevents new problems down the road. Our quality roofing and chimney services follow a thorough process:

Thorough Inspection

First, our technicians will conduct a detailed inspection of your chimney’s exterior masonry, crown, damper, smoke chamber, flue liners, and firebox. We use state-of-the-art video cameras for internal assessments.

Identify All Issues

Next, we diagnose any issues uncovered during the inspection. We pay special attention to potential safety hazards like structural instability, creosote buildup, leaks, wildlife blockages, and ventilation problems.

Complete Chimney Restoration

After you approve the repairs, we professionally restore your chimney using specialized techniques and high-quality materials. Our work is guaranteed for your peace of mind.

Follow-Up Inspection

Finally, we’ll conduct a follow-up inspection after the repairs are complete. This ensures all issues have been properly addressed so your chimney remains in excellent condition.
