Reasons To Remove An Old Chimney
An older home can have a certain charm that is hard to pass up. However, older buildings also have the potential to require numerous repairs. One area that is sometimes overlooked is the chimney. Below we list some of the reasons to consider removing an old chimney.
Older chimneys have experienced more than their fair share of Canadian weather. Winters are particularly hard on chimneys which are exposed to rain, snow, sleet and ice regularly on the outside, while being exposed to blistering heat internally. Over time nature's constant assault can break down the integrity of even the most well built chimneys. If regular chimney repairs and maintenance is not carried out, loose bricks may cause damage to your roof, eaves troughs, parked cars and individuals below.
Chimneys are only as secure as the structures below them. Older fireplaces and beams may fail to provide the support that your chimney requires. Obviously a structure that has been neglected may be in danger of collapsing, placing the home occupants and passers by in danger. If you think that your chimney is a hazard, don't hesitate to call us.
Lack of Chimney Lining
Unlike modern houses, older buildings were not required to have chimney linings. A chimney liner is fabricated from corrosion resistant metal tubing or piping. Without a liner your chimney will deteriorate more quickly as moisture, various vapours, and other types of gases are free to attack the structural integrity of your chimney. A chimney lacking a lining may require removal. Contact us for professional advice if you think your chimney may require a lining or removal.
