Chimney Removal

Many residents in Center City in downtown, as well as other Rochester area neighborhoods live in older homes with a chimney that is beyond repair and want to avoid a structural collapse. Professional chimney removal may be your best option if that sounds like your situation. However, it’s a lot easier to build a chimney than to remove it, especially if it has severe damage and is attached to an older or historic home. So, you must ensure the company you hire has the skills and professional equipment to do it correctly.

When Your Rochester Chimney Needs Removal

A damaged chimney can be dangerous. As the stack becomes unstable, it can collapse, resulting in significant property damage to your beautiful home. A lightning strike, tropical storm force winds, heavy rain and hail may be all it takes to push it over the edge. A crumbling chimney can also be a health hazard. Our humid summer weather is the perfect storm for mold and mildew that can spread inside your home. It can also attract rodents and pests like mice, rats, ants, and cockroaches.

Here is a handy checklist that you can use as a guide to determine whether chimney removal is right for you:

  • Your chimney is leaning.
  • Several sections of missing or spalling bricks.
  • Significant gaps in the mortar joints.
  • Severe damage to the chimney crown and masonry.
  • Extensive water damage.
  • Foundation is sinking or damaged.
  • You want to rebuild a new chimney.
  • You are installing a new heating appliance that doesn’t require a chimney.
