Smoke Draft Problems
Homeowners are told that the fall and winter months are not suitable for some chimney repairs and they should have this work done in the summer when the weather is better. There are several good reasons for homeowners to act right now to get those chimney services performed before the good weather goes away!
Have your masonry or manufactured chimney inspected by a professional chimney sweep after storm damage by tornado, lightning, hail, microburst, hurricane, or high wind. Signs of storm damage to a masonry chimney may include brick pieces or full bricks lying on the ground or on the roof, fresh cracks in the chimney, or blown out sections of the chimney.

Many homeowners have fireplaces that have never worked or that have been made inoperable over the years due to chimney fires, wood stove installations or changes in the interior or exterior of their homes.
