Ways To Give Your Chimney New Life

Don’t you love the old architecture of years ago? The large stately buildings that soar into the sky. Beautiful brick fireplaces. Over time it has been made clear that regulations need to be adjusted to make burning a fire safer. Changes in safety codes have been made over the years to protect your home and your family.

There are many things you can do to preserve those old chimneys as well as the new ones. Contact the team at Chimney Specialists Inc. to help you through the process. Let’s go over some of those to help preserve the integrity of your fireplace.

Chimney Liners

Chimney liners are now metal. If your home is still equipped with a non-metal liner, it’s time to look into changing it out. Not only will this help with the structure of your chimney, but it is also a safety measure. Without the safety of a metal liner, gas can leak into your home causing unhealthy conditions. Metal liners are also up to code. When burning wood in the fireplace, creosote can build up on the masonry.

Home Settling In

Over the years your home will tend to settle. Floors will shift, chimneys will adjust, and your basement may settle as well. With this natural movement, your chimney will take some impact. With this settling, you may see cracked mortar or even cracked bricks. It is essential to watch for any movement and get this corrected to improve the longevity of the chimney. Contact Chimney Specialists Inc for help with repairs.


Your chimney may look intact, but there may be damage from water seeping in. The suggestion of Chimney Specialists Inc would be to have your chimney waterproofed. Adding a waterproofing solution will help in the long run to the longevity of your chimney. Making it look beautiful for years to come.
