Mark Twain once said “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes.” Such fast-changing weather conditions can cause real strain on chimneys and other masonry, as even the toughest stone gets worn down when constantly exposed to the elements. A damaged or rain-weathered chimney puts an entire home at risk: water damage, falling pieces of masonry, and wild animals seeking shelter inside are just a few of the concerns that can turn into serious safety issues for your home. Regular maintenance by certified chimney professionals is much smarter and safer than hoping a problem doesn’t become serious, and leaving even minor safety concerns unchecked could cause them to spiral out of control. Potentially needing a chimney demolished and entirely rebuilt from scratch is a headache that no homeowner should experience.
Even if a chimney looks fine on the outside, internal wear, damage, and residue buildup remains a concern for anyone who regularly uses their chimney. An improperly lined chimney, or one with a proper lining that isn’t given the recommended annual inspection, can be a serious fire hazard. If that weren’t enough, uncertified or unprofessional chimney sweeps can be more of a hindrance than help; lack of industry-standard thoroughness in inspection can lead to spending money on “workers” who are more concerned with getting in and out quickly, rather than making sure that every part of your chimney is functioning acceptably.
