Beyond Chilly...

It's downright freezing this morning!

I have a 4WD vehicle, but even that was slipping and sliding on the road to the office.

I stopped briefly to take this picture:

It was so cold and icy this morning! This picture shows the moon in the background, and let me just say that it's so dark in the mornings (even after 7:30am!), that the ground is still very, very frozen.

What does this mean for your home? Your masonry? Your loved ones?

In short, there's no time like the present. It's becoming necessary to have our fireplaces going, and without a proper cleaning & inspection (recommended on an annual basis), you can't know whether there's a build-up of creosote, or a problem with your ash dump, or whether your damper is able to open and close like it's supposed to. Get it done today. Additionally, moisture is masonry's silent killer! It's not going to warm up at all, and the more freezing temperatures we have, the more the masonry work on your chimney and home is going to suffer.

Don't wait until you have a chimney fire, or a chimney that's practically falling down before you schedule your cleaning and inspection, or estimate for repairs. Call us today!
