Certified Chimney Repair Services

Chimney Repair and Masonry Services in Maryland, Washington D.C. and Northern VirginiaChimney repair is a necessary part of the life of any home. Chimneys are responsible for safely removing hazardous gasses and smoke from a house, and therefore, should not be ignored. Damaged chimneys can lead to house fires, carbon monoxide poisoning and smoky fireplaces, among other problems. For this reason, any chimney problem you need fixed is best left to the experts. The following are some of the typical jobs that High’s performs regularly on chimneys we repair.

Chimney Cap Repair:

Chimney caps are the area of the chimney at the top that seals the top opening preventing moisture and shedding rainwater stopping the chimney from deteriorating. Often chimney caps are improperly built or deteriorate. Whether the chimney cap in question involves working with concrete, brick and mortar, or stone High’s Chimney has the experience necessary to provide lasting results.

Firebox Repair:

The firebox is the section of the chimney system in which a person builds a fire. A proper firebox is lined with firebrick, a substance of refractory ceramic, which can become cracked or weakened after years of use. This area of the chimney is often in need of repair. It is recommended to have a thorough inspection of the firebox every five years or so depending on fireplace usage.

Smoke Chamber Problems:

The smoke chamber serves as the support for flue liner. The main problem with smoke chambers is any chamber problem is often difficult to detect due to the majority of the issues originating behind the facial wall. While other components of the chimney may appear fine from the outside the smoke chamber could have problems. A yearly chimney inspection from High’s Chimney will alert a homeowner to any smoke chamber problems and can be corrected before any safety issues arise.
