We Do Chimney Renovations!

Masonry chimneys are built to last a lifetime! However, they are susceptible to damage from erosion caused by water penetration, chimney fires, and other problems. When damage does occur, it is essential to have it repaired as soon as possible to prevent further deterioration. If neglected, cracked bricks and mortar joints can become loose and fall from the chimney structure. This jeopardizes the structural soundness of the entire chimney. Plus, also requires renovation work. Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists provide masonry chimney renovation and rebuilding services to the residents of Upstate South Carolina who are dealing with chimney deterioration. We would like to tell you more about why you may need to have your chimney renovated. In addition, what kinds of services we can offer.

Why does my chimney require renovation services?

In order to work safely and efficiently, the structure of your chimney needs to be in good condition. Damaged chimney masonry pose risks of water leaks. It can also lead to the collapse of the chimney itself. Several factors other than damaged masonry materials can be behind the reasons why your chimney structure is damaged, according to Inspectapedia. Issues with the chimney footing, such as inadequate size and poor soil, can cause your chimney to shift or lean. You could also be lacking the proper lateral support that ties the chimney to your home. Another reason for chimney structural damage could be accidental, such as tree limbs falling on your home during a strong storm.

What types of chimney renovation services does Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists provide?

Has your masonry chimney been damaged accidentally or deteriorated beyond simple repairing? If so, you can trust us to take care of this problem. We start our partial and total chimney rebuilds by safely tearing down the damaged structure. After this has been completed, we will follow all local and state building codes and regulations to construct a new chimney.

We will consult with you before we begin this process. This is to see if you want your new chimney to be rebuilt exactly as it was. If you were unhappy with the appearance of the old chimney, we can rebuild the chimney as you would like for it to look. We can also make repairs to damaged bricks and mortar joints. This prevents further deterioration that would lead to a total renovation. Our experienced chimney masons are trained in techniques like tuckpointing. This process removes damaged masonry materials and replace the bricks and mortar to match the existing chimney. We take great care to ensure our repair work is unnoticeable as well as durable.
