Chimney Services in Columbia
The advantages of having a chimney to warm up your Columbia home or business are numerous—energy savings and cozy fires with the family or a romantic evening for two among many. It’s important to ensure that your chimney is properly maintained. Lewis Roofing provides professional chimney services that include a chimney inspection, repair of chimney leaks, chimney sweep and repair and any other chimney maintenance requirement.
Many homeowners and business owners may tend to forget about a chimney when they think about property maintenance, yet it is crucial to have your chimney’s ventilation systems checked regularly by licensed chimney sweep to ensure that the air quality of your home or business in Columbia is free from harmful toxins that can emanate from a blocked chimney filled with soot or harmful creosote. In addition, after years of exposure to variable weather conditions and extended usage, your chimney will begin to deteriorate and suffer from moisture damage. Lewis Roofing provides certified chimney inspection and repair that cover every aspect for masonry repair, chimney relining, repair of a leaking chimney, tuck-pointing, flashing repair and crown and firebox rebuilding and more.
Chimney Relining and Liner Repair
A chimney liner is the essential component that directs smoke and toxins away from your home or business property in Columbia. Separate from the chimney construction itself, the liner required a specialized nonflammable coating that requires regular maintenance to protect your property and the people from fire, harmful carbon monoxide emissions and other toxic gases. During a Lewis Roofing chimney inspection, our licensed technicians will assess the condition of the chimney liner and provide skilled repair of any cracks or openings to avoid if necessary. Prompt cleaning and repair of your chimney liner can prevent more costly restoration later on including corrosion of metal liners and decay due to lack of regular chimney maintenance. Regulatory building codes in most regions require masonry chimneys to have a well maintained line and liners should also be checked when installing any new type of heating system.
For long lasting performance and efficiency, a residential or commercial chimney should be regularly evaluated for water penetration and water damage. Chimney leaks are the result of deterioration, corrosion and spalling (when masonry breaks down into chips or flakes) which can lead to the need for costly structural repairs. Lewis Roofing provides a water repellent treatment for chimneys that can stand up to the harshest weather conditions and not only increase the life span of your chimney in Columbia, but protect its entire structural integrity.
Chimney Cleaning and Inspection
In addition to regular chimney repair and maintenance, virtually all national fire associations and fire protection agencies recommend regular chimney cleaning and licensed chimney inspections from an experienced chimney sweep. Lewis Roofing provides a thorough cleaning of all soot and blockages of the smoke chamber, flue liner, firebox and damper. Fully trained and insured, our experience chimney sweep and technicians are fully equipped to sweep any size of type of chimney, following an inspection and will leave your Columbia home or business neat and tidy once all chimney cleaning is complete.
