Annual chimney inspections at your Buffalo-area home will help you avoid the expense and hassle that comes from a severely damaged chimney system. During an inspection, our technicians are able to spot early signs of masonry and component damage and recommend the best way to solve the problem quickly.
We provide all chimney inspections recommended by the Chimney Safety Institute of America:
Level 1: The basic inspection performed yearly to detect signs of initial damage or malfunction.
Level 2: Perfumed when:
- The home is being sold;
- A new appliance is being connected to the chimney or other system modifications have taken place;
- Damage from a chimney fire, weather event or other circumstance is known to exist.
Level 3: This inspection is called for when significant damage to the chimney structure has occurred and often includes the dismantling of sections of the chimney masonry and adjacent materials of the home.
Chimney Caps, Flue Caps & Chase Tops
Chimney caps and flue caps on masonry chimneys and chimney chase covers (tops) on factory-built chimneys provide important protection against water and the elements. If your Central Park chimney has a damaged cap or chase top, water damage is going to happen eventually. In addition, leaves, twigs, animal nests and other debris can begin to build up in the flue and hamper drafting.
We can repair caps and chase tops in many cases; we also can install new, updated versions of these components. If you have no chimney cap, or if you only have a basic flue cap, let us install a new full hip and ridge custom chimney cap. These full-width devices give you solid protection for the entire top of your chimney including the chimney crown.
