Repairing Fireplace Brick

A properly constructed chimney has two (or more)layers that are fire-resistant, such as two layers of brick, two walls of steel, or steel that has been insulated with stone wool. However, if a break does occur, there's a chance that flames will break through these layers and get to the combustible materials close to the firebox. If the gap is wider, burning embers might also accidentally blow through it and into the wall. Any crack in a fireplace, no matter how small needs to be fixed right away coz it poses a serious fire risk.

Damper Restoration

Think of your chimney as a tube, and the damper as a flap that closes the tube.
It will eventually become impossible for the metal damper to close tightly and form a tight seal because it will become bent or coated
in rust, creosote, or ashes.
If your damper doesn't close tightly you'll be losing significant heat from your house through your chimney.

Deep Cleaning of the Chimney Flue

The National Fire Protection Association advises that utility and chimney flues be cleaned at least once per year for both homeowners and renters. Utility flues that are blocked or clogged can be just as dangerous as a dirty chimney. The hazardous gas will leak into your house if the carbon monoxide produced by your boiler or water heater cannot vent outside through the flue.

Repair of Metal Flashing

Roof flashing is one of the most important components of your roof. Since these areas frequently experience heavy rainfall, it is the thin material, which is typically made of galvanized steel, that is used to anchor joints in valleys, dormers, chimneys, and skylights. When flashing becomes loosened or damaged, these exposed surfaces are vulnerable to water damage. In essence, flashing protects the corners where the roof meets adjacent structures.

Hardy Plank Siding Replacement

The issue is that fiberboard, even when maintained properly, is not a long-lasting material for your home's exterior. It is very prone to swelling, rotting, and deterioration. Because of this, a chimney that appears to be in good condition from the ground may actually be completely rotten and allow water to enter the house.

Chimney Crown Repair/ Rebuild

The severely fractured chimney crown warms and cools when you light a fire in your fireplace or wood stove in the winter. When the temperature falls below freezing, any rainwater that has been absorbed into the crown of your chimney will freeze and thaw, causing expansion and contraction. It is essential to prevent water from ever getting inside the chimney crown in the first place because doing so eventually causes your crown to deteriorate and crack. Depending on the degree of the damage, the crown will either need to be repaired or totally replaced.

With a quick, low-cost sweep, a catastrophe can be avoided.

Judi J.

I have never used my fireplace since I purchased my home over 10 years ago. Never inspected, never cleaned so when I saw a leak in my ceiling where there were no water pipes I figured the leak must be coming from the fireplace. Rico and Tolin contacted me and offered a free inspection...

Common Issues & Concerns

“Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and proper clearances,” according to National Fire Protection Association Standard 211. If required, cleaning, upkeep, and repairs must be made.
 
Creosote deposits in your chimney, a normal byproduct of burning wood, are to blame for the odor. Sometimes when it’s hot outside, when the humidity is higher, and when the air conditioner is running, the smell is worse. While a thorough sweep will help, it typically won’t solve the issue entirely.
 
 
This has become quite a common issue in modern air-tight houses where weather-proofing has sealed up the air infiltration routes. The fireplace in use exhausts household air until a negative pressure situation happens. If the house is tight, the simplest route for makeup air to enter the structure is often the unused fireplace chimney. As air is drawn down the unused flue, it picks up smoke that is exiting nearby from the fireplace in use and delivers the smoke to your living area. The solution is to introduce makeup air to the house so that the negative pressure problem is no longer a problem, thus eliminating not only the smoke issue, but also the potential for carbon monoxide to be drawn back down the furnace. Another solution is to install a top-mount damper on the fireplace that is used the least.
 
 
 
Yes! Gas burns cleaner than other fuels, but bird nests, animals, or other debris blocking the flue can cause the chimney to stop working. With the typical flues designed for older generations of furnaces, some newer furnaces can also cause a lot of issues. To be safe, it is best to check the areas for gas and carbon monoxide.
 
A complete chimney sweeping includes the chimney flue and smoke chamber. You will be able to visibly see the that the flue is cleaner. Ask for a report after the sweeping is done.
 
 
 
 
Insulation is not necessary for oil- and gas-fired appliance liners to meet installation and warranty requirements set forth by the manufacturers. Less heat transfer and lower flue gas temperatures make it less likely that they will ignite nearby combustible materials. There are provisions that permit the chimney liner to be installed in a method known as a zero/zero install if combustible materials are in close proximity to the chimney. The idea of insulating each liner that serves a wood-burning appliance makes more sense. Insulation in the liner will help all appliances, including those that burn gas and oil and are vented into an outdoor chimney.
 
 
 
 
It is safe to burn dry, seasoned firewood in your fireplace. Dry firewood typically has a moisture content of less than 20% and has been properly stored for at least six months to a year. Hardwoods like oak, maple, birch, and ash are excellent choices as they burn longer and produce more heat. Softwoods like pine and fir can also be burned, but they tend to burn faster and produce less heat. It is important to avoid burning treated wood, painted wood, or any materials that may release toxic fumes when burned. Additionally, never burn trash, cardboard, or paper products in your fireplace as they can cause excessive smoke and potentially start a chimney fire.
