With spring here and summer soon approaching, chimney care is probably the last thing on your mind. If you’re like most, you’re probably waiting until fall when you’re burning season is about to kick off. This seems like a logical enough plan, but we’re here to offer some different advice. Why not cross your inspection off your list now? There are countless advantages to finishing this work early, and our sweeps are ready to help you out soon. Learn more below, then give the CSIA and NFI certified team at Mason’s Chimney Service a call today!

Finding A Time That Works For You

One of the biggest advantages of early scheduling is the ability to work with your schedule. Fall and winter are our busiest times, so it’s not always easy to book an appointment at your convenience. We try our hardest to accommodate our customers in every way possible, but if our books are full, there’s simply not a lot we can do.

When you schedule in the spring and summer months, our availability will be a lot more flexible, and we’re guessing you’ll be on less of a time crunch. Since there’s no rush to light up a fire any time soon and since our sweeps are less busy, we’ll be able to find the most convenient arrangement! If this sounds like the ideal scenario for you, give us a call right away and we’ll get started.

Doing Repair Work Early

Chimneys and fireplaces go through a lot, so it’s not uncommon for us to discover clogs, cracking, creosote build-up, crumbling masonry, and more. Most of the time, these problems are easily resolvable with a little help from our sweeps. The sooner we can get the work done, the better off you will be!

This is another reason to get that inspection done early! Imagine getting us in this fall, only to learn you need to invest in some repair work before putting your chimney to use. Since you’re likely anxious to get that first fire of the year going, this can be a frustrating situation and, with our schedule books filling up fast, it’s not always easy for us to get back to your home right away.

If we spot any damages this spring, we resolve them well before colder temperatures come back again. Along with this, spring provides an ideal temperature range for getting various repairs done. Some products cure better in this type of weather, so you’ll be sure to get great-looking and longer-lasting results.

What Are You Waiting For?

There’s no better time to complete your chimney maintenance, so why not contact our team right away? When fall returns and your friends and neighbors are scrambling to get their fireplace services in, you’ll be relaxing by a crackling fire, happy to have all of that behind you. Get your appointment scheduled right away!

Chimney Masonry Repairs

A masonry chimney can add a beautiful and timeless aesthetic to any home. They are also a popular choice for homeowners all throughout our service area. Unfortunately, all too often, masonry isn’t properly maintained, which leads to some unsightly and potentially risky issues. We encourage all of our customers to invest in regular maintenance to ensure crumbling masonry doesn’t become a part of your everyday life. For help soon, give our team a call!

All About Pointing

Pointing has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years, and it was initially performed to improve the aesthetic of homes, without costing homeowners an arm and a leg to do so. Nowadays, chimney sweeps still perform pointing services to keep homes all over the place looking great! If your brickwork and mortar are crumbling, consider working with us soon.

While pointing provides some cosmetic benefits to your chimney, we also like to note that it strengthens your structure, too. When brickwork breaks down, your home and fireplace become much more vulnerable, putting you and your loved ones at some serious risks!

We urge anyone facing deterioration to call in our experts as soon as possible. And, trust us, this isn’t a task you want to tackle yourself. Pointing is intricate and time-consuming and it takes a lot of patience and hard work to match up the old mortar with the new. A subpar job will look sloppy and won’t give you those long-lasting results you’re hoping for. For a great job guaranteed, give our experts a call today!

How’s Your Crown Looking?

Sometimes masonry issues stem from a faulty chimney crown. Your crown plays a big part in sending water out and away from your brickwork and anything from cracks to holes to improper installation can cause you some serious problems and big headaches. Unfortunately, many neglect to properly address these issues, causing even bigger problems down the line.

If your crown is showing signs of decay, count on us to patch things up, so you don’t have to stress come fall. You’ll be up and running again in no time!

Invest In Waterproofing, Too!

When all is said and done, waterproofing is a service you’ll want to invest in for years of added protection. We’d hate to fix up your brickwork, only to see it deteriorate due to water damage soon after the job is complete. Our waterproofing products work hard to keep moisture away while allowing your chimney the opportunity to vent out necessary fumes and vapors. If you’re worried about your masonry, give us a call now!

We’ve Got Your Back With Anything

If you’ve got issues with masonry, you won’t want to wait to resolve them. Get on on the phone with our expert CSIA certified team today so that you don’t have to stress when fall weather comes back around. We’re excited to assist you!
