Smoke Problems

Sometimes chimneys experience adverse conditions that cause them to operate incorrectly.

The Vacustack chimney cap will cure most wind-related down-draft problems. It is designed to increase draft as wind speed increases. If the smoking problem is wind related, we recommend installing the Vacustack along with a smoke guard which is installed below the lintel of the fireplace.

The Exhausto is a cap with a powered fan installed at the top of the flue that aids chimneys that have a poor draft mostly due to undersized flue system and/or liners.

 

Chimney Masonry Restoration

Masonry restoration may be needed to repair structural deficiencies due to damage, to improve energy efficiency, to improve aesthetics, or as preventive maintenance.

 

Flaking Bricks

Also known as spalling, flaking bricks can be caused by moisture problems. Let us help you determine the best course of action to take to prevent further deterioration.

 

Water Repellent Application

Saver Systems offers a water-based repellent that can be applied in damp conditions, will not discolor or damage asphalt shingles and has no chemical odor because Chimney Saver is not a water sealer but a WATER REPELLENT. The difference could save you hundreds to thousands of dollars in repairs. Sealers can actually damage masonry. Unlike waterproofing sealers that remain on the surface and trap water vapors, Chimney Saver repellent penetrates deep enough to protect masonry from destructive water penetration.

 

Crown Coat

Is a brushed-on elastomeric coating that forms a flexible waterproof membrane. It is specifically formulated to protect chimney crowns from water intrusion. And is also available for cold weather application down to -40 degrees below 0 Fahrenheit.
