Although smokestack repairs may be about masonry work, the obstruction or blockage, or the accumulation of creosote along the lining, this article will particularly review the repairs and restorations that involve your chimney cap, crown, and liner. Read on to learn more about how the most skilled repair professionals in Chicago, who will go about repairing your chimney, should the need for repairs arise.
Chimney Cap Repairs
Caps serve the purpose of preventing large debris or animals from causing obstruction or blockage.
Chimney caps are generally metal, such as copper or stainless steel. Durable as they may be, these covers are still prone to damage, particularly considering the way in which they function. Metal caps can crack, tear, and shrink due to high temperature, and become dented or have their screws loosen, also because of too much heat.
In such cases, your cover may still be salvageable, if it is only slight dents and loose screws that we are dealing with. Otherwise, if the damages are too extensive for it to be serviceable, then replacement could be the ultimate solution.
Chimney Crown Repairs
Not to be confused with the cap, which is a separate entity, independent of the chimney itself and only as an appendage to the masonry structure of the smokestack, the chimney crown is permanently attached to the chimney brickwork that is visible atop your house. It requires the same attention and care as any other stonework, as it also suffers from damages in the same way that a concrete foundation or patio stonework will.
In the event of breakage or cracking in the masonry work of your crown, sealing or complete replacement are your two most common options.
Chimney Lining Repairs
Chimney lining, or flue lining, is also part of the masonry work, which is installed on the inside of the entire length of the smokestack. Its function is to contain the combustion as extremely high temperature passes through it and pushes the smoke outward to the outside.
Constant inspection is key to keeping the lining in good condition, especially since it is not visible on the outside. Your chimney may appear faultless, but it is already failing in functioning within its flue lining. There is no other way to repair a flue lining but with relining.
