Our technicians will definitely be able to spot the problem and provide a solution. Now, there are some pretty common chimney repairs that we see pretty often, and most of them aren’t too complicated. Let’s look at an example. Say your chimney just isn’t venting properly. This could be for several different reasons, however sometimes the problem is as simple as the damper not completely opening. This could be because of creosote buildup that is preventing the damper from opening all the way. It could be even more mundane, though… maybe you just forgot to open the damper! Everyone forgets at some point. Sometimes, a fireplace won’t vent properly because it’s just plain dirty. In this case, a good ol’ chimney sweep will clear up the problem.
