A chimney is one component of your house that may require frequent maintenance. If you are a Eugene or Springfield resident, you may find that weather damage is often the culprit. However, structural problems, cosmetic issues and internal wear and tear, can all be cause for chimney repair.
- The Chimney cap – chimney caps have the important role of keeping out animals and debris.
- The flue – whether it’s the structure of the flue or the flue liner that needs to be repaired, both of these components are critical to the function of your chimney.
- The flue connector – this connects the flue to the fire place.
- The smoke chamber – this is the area above the damper. The smoke enters this space before heading up the flue.
In addition, your chimney may require exterior work that could be cosmetic or structural. Needless to say, chimney repair is labor intensive and risky, if you don’t know what you are doing. A chimney needs to be assessed for structural integrity before, during and after a job, and it’s not advisable to try to do so on your own.
