While your chimney may not require frequent sweeps, it is recommended by the National Fire Protection Association to have it inspected annually. An annual inspection significantly reduces the risk of a house fire. Allstar’s technicians perform a thorough multi-point inspection, meticulously examining every aspect of your chimney and fireplace.
To keep you fully informed, our technicians document the inspection process with photographs and provide you with a detailed condition report upon the completion of our services. Given that we offer a range of services, including sweeps, waterproofing, animal removal, installations, and repairs, we are well-equipped to address any necessary chimney and fireplace maintenance for you.
Neglecting to assess your chimney or fireplace can have profound, life-altering impacts on you and your home. Some degree of chimney deterioration is common due to constant exposure to precipitation. A masonry chimney, much like a sponge, is porous and absorbs and releases water. Over time, this repetitive cycle causes the brick and mortar to deteriorate, resulting in a leaky chimney. A leaky chimney leads to discolored bricks, rusted chimney and fireplace components, mold growth, and unpleasant odors.
These water-related issues are not exclusive to masonry chimneys; prefabricated chimneys can also experience leaks that yield similar consequences. Therefore, even if your chimney is not in active use, it is crucial to have it inspected regularly to ensure your safety and prevent costly damage to your home.
The good news is that you can take proactive steps to avoid unforeseen circumstances stemming from a neglected chimney. Allstar Chimney Sweep Calvert is fully prepared to assist you in scheduling your annual inspection today, providing you with the assurance that your chimney poses no threat to you and your home.
Commonly Requested Services
Chimney sweeps are vital to the lifespan of your chimney and in promoting safety in your home as a whole. A sweep removes soot and creosote to help you avoid the devastating result of a chimney or house fire. They also offer the great benefit of providing the technician performing the sweep with the opportunity to complete an inspection on your fireplace and chimney to make sure other safety measures are also in place.
No one should be in need of a masonry repair and be faced with a long drawn-out process. Allstar proudly offers a two-step process in masonry repairs. Step one consists of you getting your initial inspection. Step two consists of the technicians coming right back to your home to complete your specialized repair plan. A huge part of our mission is to provide quality repairs while also using the opportunity to involve and educate our customers.
All people do not get inspections for the same reasons. Some people are experiencing issues such as water leaks or foul smells while others may be in the process of buying, selling, or renovating their homes. Whatever the reason is that you’re seeking an inspection, Allstar has you covered. With over 30 years of experience, Allstar has created an inspection process that will include a survey of each aspect of your chimney.
Sealants, Which Is The Best?
Looking at a home from the street, you notice there is a chimney on one side of the home. It is not the most common thing to notice, but it does get noticed. Since it is subject to continuously changing climates like the blazing sun to free-thaw sessions, there is a higher chance of your chimney cracking. Sometimes there are holes in the previous sealants that can lead to further water damage, especially to your home. Though bricks are normally strong structure material, they do soak up lots of water. The best way to prevent damage from any dampness and water is to block with a strong sealant.
Types of Sealants
- Cures rapidly
- Cures to a delicate completion
- Not very useful for high traffic territories
- Does not hold up to abrasions well
- Works best on materials like metal, glass, and tile
- Utilized in any temperature, functions great in the chilly temperatures
- The life expectancy of 20+ years
- Over 24 hours to completely dry
- Cures to a hard completion
- Does work well in high rush hour gridlock areas
- Holds up well to abrasions
- Works best on wood only
- Highly difficult to apply in cooler temperatures and does not a strong bond when cold
- Long term life expectancy
