Chimney Inspection and Repair

Chimney Inspections

The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends a chimney inspection once a year, and for good reason. A dirty or clogged chimney could fill your home with acrid smoke or even cause a chimney fire when you start a fire this winter.

A Chimney Cap Protects Your Chimney

Over time, soot can build up in the inside of your chimney, restricting proper airflow. Regular chimney cleaning keeps air flowing and can even prevent chimney fires. If your chimney doesn't have a protective weather cap, it could become clogged even more easily, because wind and rain can push leaves or other debris into the mouth, blocking smoke from leaving your chimney.

The professional chimney sweeps at Powers Chimney & Masonry can make sure your chimney is in peak condition, while also checking for other dangers, like a broken or cracked liner.

How Chimney Liners Can Help

Chimney liners expel hot flue gases into the atmosphere, and a damaged one could potentially endanger the structural integrity of your chimney and even threaten your home.

The Seattle chimney repair experts at Powers Chimney and Masonry can fix a broken liner in no time, and ensure the safety of your home.

We also offer Seattle chimney restoration services.
