Trust The Experts At Wells & Sons For Your Chimney Repair
Despite their relatively simple appearance, chimneys are deceivingly complex structures. With many different parts that protect your home against heat, water, smoke and the elements, chimneys need regular maintenance in order to work their best.
Regular annual chimney sweepings and inspections are one way to keep your chimney functioning correctly and in good working condition. However, sometimes even the most lovingly maintained chimneys become damaged. Whether a strong storm or other natural disaster has caused chimney damage or your chimney is simply feeling the effects of long-term exposure to the elements, you can trust the experts at Wells & Sons Chimney Services to repair your chimney promptly, properly and affordably.
Our Chimney Repair Services
Oftentimes, homeowners are reluctant to have their chimneys repaired due to the perceived inconveniences of cost or time spent living in a construction zone; others rationalize that their chimneys can still work fine, even if the repairs are not made.
While your unrepaired chimney may be serviceable in the short term, it can create a serious safety hazard for your family in the long term. Instead of putting off repairs, trust Wells & Sons to get your chimney back to functioning correctly, whether it is a small repair or a large one.
We Provide Seamless Chimney Repointing Work
Chimney repointing is an important part of chimney masonry maintenance. While well-maintained bricks can last for as long as 100 years, the mortar joints that surround them often begin deteriorating in as little as 25. Because of this, many homes need chimney repointing long before the brick itself is damaged.
The experts here at Wells & Sons have extensive knowledge of both old and new masonry techniques and materials and are proven repointing experts. During the chimney repointing process, the majority of the old mortar is removed (without damaging the bricks) before new mortar is applied. By having your chimney repointed, you can easily extend the life of your chimney and keep your chimney looking like new!
