Now let's look at some common Denver chimney repairs. First of all, you should know that you need to get an inspection of your chimney before your first fire, if you haven't already had an inspection this year. During the inspection, any necessary Denver chimney repairs that need to be made will be revealed. One of the most common Denver chimney repairs that needs to be made is getting a proper chimney cap on the chimney. Some caps that companies sell provide very limited coverage of the chimney. Most of these caps that I'm speaking of only really prevent birds from getting in the chimney, but nothing else. What you need is a cap that fully covers the chimney, and will keep out any critters that try to invade it. A proper chimney cap will also help a fire venerate and draft properly.
Another common Denver chimney repairs is actually not so much of a repair. If your chimney is acting up and not properly venting, it could be because it is dirty! Just ¼” soot buildup can cause significant issues with your chimney. Actually, 1/2” soot buildup can restrict the air flow in your chimney by 17%! This is just the number for a typical masonry fireplace. The same amount of soot buildup reduces air flow by 30% in a prefabricated chimney. Most people opt to get their chimney cleaned when they get it inspected, mostly for convenience sake. You don't necessarily need to do this, however. How often you need to clean your chimney does depend on how often you use your chimney. As a general rule, we recommend that people get their chimney cleaned for every quart of wood you use. If you aren't sure if you need a cleaning or any other Denver chimney repairs, simply get an inspection to find out fore sure.
