Why Warmer Weather?

Well, any type of chimney repair is best done in the summer because it offers more ideal working conditions for the sweep. They will be able to do their job in a way that is safer and more effective. You also won’t find yourself needing to delay any jobs due to freezing temperatures or snowy/sleety weather.

This will give the team you hire ample time to get your structure properly waterproofed before winter. Avoiding this maintenance could lead to a lot of water-related damages and the freeze/thaw process, all of which will trigger more repair work before you know it. Finally, most masonry repairs require materials that need to cure in nice weather. The temperature needs to be within a certain range, and it can’t be rainy or wet, either. When these repairs are done on colder days, it’s a lot harder to achieve those high-quality results!

Save Yourself The Stress – Schedule Now!

A broken down masonry structure can lead to a lot of stressful and dangerous situations for your household. Cracks and gaps in your brickwork and mortar leave open pathways for flames, smoke, carbon monoxide, and other dangerous fumes to escape into your home. This makes you more vulnerable to house and chimney fires. It could also lead to serious illnesses or even death.

Scheduling now also ensures our team has ample time to get your work completed before the burning season starts. Once fall officially gets here, our team of experts can become quite swamped, forcing some customers to wait weeks before we can do an inspection. If the repairs you need are more extensive, it may be a while before we can get to you, meaning you’ll have to delay your burn season indefinitely.

This is less than ideal, and it can leave friends, holiday guests, and family members disappointed. A crackling flame sets the mood for every fall and winter evening, so ensure your system is ready for use by counting on our team of CSIA certified technicians today. We’re eager to work with you soon!
