Masonry and Repairs
We offer the full range of repairs to chimney systems, big and small. Our company provides high quality masonry work which includes rebuilds, stucco work, masonry water repellents, and tuck pointing. We also provide various repairs to all parts of chimney, from cracks in a firebox to installing a new gasket on a wood stove. We specialize in stucco and stucco remediation.
Repairing broken, cracked, or deteriorated crowns is the first step in preventing costly repairs to brickwork. Rain water and ice can penetrate cracks in the crown causing brickwork to deteriorate and eventually fail.
Horvath’s Chimney and Stucco Services specializes on small repairs of stucco remediation. We can repair stucco below windows, chimneys and other places the sun could fade or water could damage.
Have you checked the stucco beneath windows or other places where your home is exposed to water? If those spots are darker than the surrounding stucco, you need stucco remediation! We provide stucco repair to get those cracked, faded, and water-damaged areas back to their former glory.
As professionals, we are trained to properly repair stucco and discover what other damage may have been done. Stucco damage is often a sign of more damage like leaks, so call us for stucco repair to get your home fixed properly the first time.
Chimney Inspection & Sweeping
The primary job of a chimney service professional is to aid in the prevention of fires related to fireplaces, wood stoves, gas, oil and coal heating systems and the chimneys that serve them through good installation and chimney inspection. Chimney sweeps install, clean and maintain these systems, evaluate their performance, prescribe changes to improve their performance, and educate the consumer about their safe and efficient operation.
In doing their primary job of chimney inspection and chimney sweeping, chimney professionals also function as on-the-job fire prevention specialists. They are constantly on the lookout for unsafe conditions that can cause home fires or threaten residents with dangerous or unhealthy indoor air quality.
Stainless Steel Liner
Our Home Guard Stainless Steel Liner by Royal Chimney Supply, is designed to reline existing chimneys or be used in new construction. It is manufactured in the highest grade mill certified alloys. These liners give a gas and water tight lining system of superior strength and durability. Its corrugated construction allows for expansion and contraction during the heat up and cool down periods, removing any stress on the system!
Deteriorated flues tiles can allow gases to enter the home. Cracked or broken flues can also collapse to the base of the chimney causing a puff back which leads to soot getting all over your home. Yuck! If your chimney flue is unlined, loose brick and debris can also potentially fall to the base of the chimney, or become clogged part way up the chimney.
If you have a rusting chase cover that looks like this one, give us a call! We can replace it with a new stainless steel chase cover that will not rust out. In new home construction, builders use a galvanized sheet metal to make chase covers, usually within 10 to 15 years after being exposed to the elements this galvanized material will begin to rust out causing ugly stains down the chimney and often starts to leak.
Chimney Caps / Top Mount Dampers
Some of the Reasons Your Chimney Needs a Chimney Cap/Top Mount Dampers!
A chimney cap keeps out the rain. A chimney cap keeps out birds, squirrels and other varmints. A chimney cap prevents leaves and debris from entering your home and also inhibits backpuffing. What is backpuffing you ask? It’s fireplace smoke coming back into the house and can result from several factors including downdrafts. And maybe most importantly, a chimney cap prevents any water damage. When paired with a “Heat Reflector/Heat Shield” you’re completely protecting your chimney and your home!
The best way to prevent moisture from rain and snow, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap.
Top Mount Dampers
Huge heat loss occurs when a chimney damper doesn’t seal properly or is missing or broken. You can’t see it, but the heat just goes right out of the house. If your chimney’s damper isn’t sealing properly it is like leaving the front door open in the middle of winter! Top Mount dampers are a simple, cost effective solution to heat loss.
