The Importance of Chimney & Brick Repair
A chimney can bring great joy to a family. If you’re anything like me, you remember each instance in your early childhood when your mom or dad would get the fireplace ready and turn it on. For me, it was the first little apartment we lived in during the mid-1980s, and my mind is seared with the wonderful experiences associated with our fireplace (and chimney).
Whether you’re heating your house with a wood or gas fireplace, roasting marshmallows with your grandkids around the basement fireplace, or snuggling up with your pet around the warm glow, a fireplace can bring tremendous meaning to times together.
But fireplaces and chimneys present a very real problem – they are a combination of potentially dangerous factors, meaning maintenance and repair is critical.
Minnesota Chimney repair is not something you’ll want to neglect.
Chimneys revolve around fire, smoke, fumes, and a hole in your roof – along with a series of masonry and roofing systems.
Chimneys present the possibility of fires, poisonous fumes, and leaking roofs if they’re done incorrectly. But our qualified technicians at Fredrickson Masonry have over 15 years of experience transforming old, ugly, and dysfunctional chimneys into beautiful, modern, and safe ones.
Fredrickson Masonry usually finds clients because folks are experiencing a build-up of smell, mess, leaks, broken bricks, brick defacement, and other dysfunctions within the chimney.
Servicing and cleaning your fireplace annually can help ensure that your chimney and fireplace are in tip-top shape, but the reality of a busy life is that most homeowners that we come across here at Fredrickson Masonry are calling us because it’s time to address the problem.
Chimney flues, caps, screens, and dampers are all critical in the ventilation system of your chimney or fireplace.
