Dangers Of Neglect
Investing in masonry repairs may seem like something you can put off. After all, brickwork is strong and sturdy, so it should hold up fine, right? Not exactly. Neglecting necessary repair work can put you home and you at some serious risks. Decay and deterioration take their toll and could eventually cause your system to form cracks and holes, along with crumbling mortar. As things weaken, you may eventually face a settlement or collapse, both of which put your family in danger and cost an arm and a leg to fix.
Along with this, damages only get worse as time goes by, encouraging excessive creosote buildup and causing potential gas leaks. The more creosote you have in your chimney, the higher the risk is for a chimney fire, which is extremely damaging to your system. You will likely need to invest in a rebuild, which is time-consuming and expensive, and your fireplace will be unsafe and unfit for regular use until repair work is completed.
Gas leaks, on the other hand, don’t damage your chimney, but they put your friends and family at risk for some serious (sometimes life-threatening) illnesses. When cracks, holes, and similar damages form, it’s easier than ever for dangerous fumes, like carbon monoxide, to enter your living space and affect the health of those within your home. Avoid any problems by having us come check things out right away. You deserve that peace of mind!
