Chimney Damage and Inspections
It is essential that a homeowner inspect their chimney annually or as needed. Some signs of structural damage that can be seen from the outside, include; slumping brick facade, large gaps between bricks, leaning brickwork stack, and misalignment of chimney caps or flues. Structural damage can weaken the status of any chimney, leading to dangerous conditions. For this reason, it is strongly recommended to have a professional Chimney Sweep with inspection certification come and evaluate the state of your chimney. A certified Chimney Sweep will be able to examine the level of pre-existing damage and advise whether routine maintenance will be sufficient or if more extensive repairs may be necessary which a roofing company like us can do.
Whether a homeowner would like to take preventative action or wait until an issue arises – taking full responsibility for the health of their home is always important.
Chimney repairs typically range between £95 and £2,500 depending on the types of repair/reconstruction needed or how many we are working on, on your property.
The National Association of Chimney Sweeps recommends that homeowners get their chimneys professionally inspected and serviced at least once per year to maintain safety and prevent costly repairs.
