Many problems that arise within chimneys are difficult for homeowners to spot on their own, which is why a professional chimney inspection is recommended annually for homeowners that use a chimney in their home. Chimney inspections are also required in New Jersey whenever buying or selling a property. If you require a chimney inspection, Mercer County Chimney Services provide all three levels of chimney inspections as defined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). We inspect chimneys throughout Mercer County, including Hightstown NJ.
If you use a chimney in your home, it is critical to have it cleaned once a year to ensure both the efficiency of the chimney and the safety of your home. Throughout Hightstown NJ, chimneys are building up creosote, a substance that can catch fire inside of chimneys if allowed to accumulate. Creosote is the leading cause of chimney fires in the United States each year. A dirty chimney is not only dangerous because of the possibility of fire, but it is also dangerous because of chimney blockages. A blocked chimney cannot vent properly and will result in harmful gasses being backed up into the home. Carbon monoxide could even be pushed back into the home, posing a serious risk to those living inside. All of these problems can easily be fixed with a chimney cleaning.
Brick and mortar chimneys throughout the areas surrounding Hightstown NJ deteriorate over time in the weather and changing seasons. Cracked or damaged mortar leads to bricks falling from the face of the chimney, a problem that can sometimes be fixed with tuckpointing to repair the mortar. When a chimney’s structure has been damaged beyond repair, however, entire sections of the chimney will need to be rebuilt. In the most serious cases, the whole chimney will have to be rebuilt.
Chimney Leak Repair In Hightstown NJ
One of a chimney’s greatest enemies is water. A leak in a chimney can lead to massive water damage to the chimney structure and could even reach the adjacent attics, ceilings, and walls of the house itself. This water damage can become costly to repair, so it is best to fix a leak early to avoid greater problems. Our technicians can repair any leaks throughout Hightstown NJ and the rest of Mercer County. Often flashing will need to be repaired to prevent water from seeping into the gap between the chimney and the roof, or a chimney cap needs to be installed to prevent water from entering the flue. We can even coat the chimney with an air-permeable waterproof substance to protect the masonry from moisture.
Furnace Flue Inspections and Repair
Homeowners throughout Hightstown NJ and the surrounding areas that do not have fireplaces or traditional chimneys could still use their furnace flues inspected and cleaned. Furnace flues are not maintained by the utility company or the fuel provider, and although they do not build up particulates as much as a fireplace chimney does, they still could need cleaning and maintenance. Acidic condensate can build up within a furnace flue, eating away at the flue lining. Prevent this by letting our technicians inspect and clean your flue, repairing any issues that are found.
