Ensure The Safety of Your Home with Our Professional Chimney Repair and Installation Services.
Maintaining your fireplace and chimney is serious business for the safety of your home. Cracks in your flue can lead to costly repairs if left unfixed and impaired venting or an avenue for fire to escape to the rest of your house. Uneven surfaces inside the fireplace or flue can collect creosote debris increasing the chances of a chimney fire. Leaks in the chimney crown or compromised flashing can lead to water damage in the attic or interior walls that can mean expensive repairs and mold growth. Tackling minor issues before they get out of hand is the key to cost control and safety. When in doubt call the chimney repair specialists in Seattle WA.

Waterproofing— We apply ChimneySaver® Water Repellent to brick masonry. ChimneySaver® is different then most common sealants, which form an impenetrable barrier that traps water inside. ChimeySaver® actually allows moisture from inside the house and within the bricks to escape while at the same time not allow water from heavy rain to absorb from the outside. It has been show to dramatically increase the lifetime of brick masonry and is guaranteed for 10 years.
Flashing —If you are seeing signs of water damage in or near your fireplace, including the interior walls, then you could have a leak near the intersection of your chimney and roof.
