Chimney Liner Repair & Installation Midlothian VA
Your chimney liner has two primary jobs:
- To provide a smooth path for smoke and toxic gases to leave your home
- To protect the interior masonry and adjacent building materials of your home from damage by extreme heat and combustion gases
An inspection using advanced video imaging technology will allow us to evaluate the condition of your chimney liner. We can then repair the liner or install a new, long-life chimney liner that will
Chimney liner issues are common throughout the Midlothian area, particularly in older homes.
Chimney Crown Repair
The cement crown at the top of your chimney is designed to prevent water from causing damage to the inside of the chimney as well as the brickwork beneath the crown.
Cracks in the crown allow water to move inside, where it will cause more and more damage until the entire crown eventually may fall apart. The bricks protected by the crown are then subject to constant contact with water. If water gets into the flue, it can cause significant damage to the chimney liner and masonry over time.
A lot of our chimney repair work involves crown repair, waterproofing, and rebuilding. We serve Midlothian homeowners all year long.
If you operate your chimney without a flue top cap or preferably a custom full-width chimney cap, all manner of debris and water can get into your flue. If you have no cap, we can install a sturdy outside-mount chimney cap for total protection. We also can repair chimney caps. An inspection will tell us the best way to solve the problem.
Damaged or missing caps put flues at risk of filling up with debris that hinders the drafting of smoke. Tree debris and small-animal nests are common. We can clean that debris out, but you’re better off keeping it from getting into your flue in the first place with a good cap.
Chimney Flashing Repair/Replacement
The flashing that seals the gap between your roof and chimney is there to keep water from running down into your home. Warped, rusted, or otherwise damaged flashing must be replaced.
Properly installed flashing can keep your Midlothian home safe and prevent serious water damage and mold growth within the building materials.
Chimney Chase Top Repair/Replacement
Some homes in the Midlothian area have chimney chase tops. These devices are standard on factory-built chimneys. When chase tops are damaged, water can move past them and negatively affect bricks and mortar as well as areas within the flue.
Our certified chimney repair team can repair a damaged chase top. If the damage is extensive, we’ll install a new one for you.
