National Chimney Service provides professional chimney inspections for our customers in Morristown NJ, Chester NJ, Dover NJ, Rockaway NJ, Jefferson NJ, and other cities and towns in Morris County. Annual inspections can save you money and ensure that your fireplace and chimney run safely and efficiently.
Basic (also called Level 1) chimney inspections cover:
Chimney bricks and mortar; and the overall chimney masonry structure’s condition.
Obvious signs of water leaks
We call this a “basic” chimney inspection, but a lot of training and experience goes into our ability to perform this service. You should never allow a novice or “handyman” to inspect or work on your Morris County chimney. This person could do a lot more harm than good.
Problems We Find during Inspections
When examining the chimney systems of our Morris County customers, we often find problems that need to be addressed quickly to prevent further damage and unsafe operating conditions.
Loose (spalling) bricks or cracked bricks
This compromise will allow water to penetrate, freeze and expand, and cause severe damage over time.
Decayed mortar joints between the bricks can lead to structural instability, a leaning chimney or a collapsed chimney.
Damaged chimney cap
Your chimney cap protects your flue from water intrusion and outside debris. Faulty caps can lead to major water damage and flue blockages.
Cracked chimney crown
The concrete crown protects the interior flue areas and the bricks beneath the crown. Cracks in the crown set the stage for system-wide water damage.
Warped or rusted chimney flashing
The flashing that seals the gap between your roof and chimney must be secure and flat, otherwise water will move into your home and cause rot, decay and possibly mold.
