Both internal and external forces can damage chimneys. The home could fall victim to shoddy craftsmanship or natural events could create structural damage. Even if the chimney was constructed properly, natural usage could begin to erode the mortar after years of constant use. Regardless, HeatShield® can help repair these damages and make your home and chimney safe to use again.
As you may already know, just because the chimney looks perfectly sound on the outside does not mean it is perfectly sound on the inside. There can be cracks or gaps inside the flue that can be very dangerous if the chimney is in use. Your yearly chimney inspection will bring these problems to light, but there is no need to panic if there are issues found.
In most cases, homeowners are faced with two options if they find cracks in the flue: rebuild the chimney or reline the chimney with a stainless steel liner. Both of these measures can be extremely expensive. A less costly solution but one that can be just as effective is in using HeatShield® to repair the chimney flue.
HeatShield® is expertly injected into the flue to fill all the gaps and cracks that were created. The sealant fills these holes, making the chimney operable again. After the sealant has been applied, the technician will again examine the chimney flue to ensure that all gaps and cracks have been filled properly.
Why spend excessive amounts of money if you absolutely do not have to? HeatShield® offers a cost-effective solution to chimney repair that will once again make your fireplace safe to use. You will no longer have to worry about health and fire dangers that could be caused by hidden gaps and cracks in your flue. In addition to being less costly, it is also an environmentally-friendly solution to chimney repair.
