Chimney and Fireplace Restoration in Victoria BC
Ideally, the only necessary work a home-owner needs to do is to have his chimney checked for safety, and in most instances, minor chimney and fireplace repairs are all that is required. However, with older homes, the chimneys and fireplaces are often not up to current building and fire regulation codes and it is necessary, to ensure that they are safe to use, to have them brought up to code.
As much as we love our chimneys and fireplaces, they are sometimes so deteriorated that the risk of using it outweighs the pleasure of a snapping fire during cold evenings
There are several reasons why the damage got bad enough that chimney and fireplace restoration are the only option available to the homeowner. The main reason is, particularly in the Pacific North West, is RAIN. Your chimney is subjected to water running down the flue or flues which creates dampness and this dampness is the main cause of chimney erosion. Another reason for this erosion is simply the result of neglect. If the chimney and fireplace are ignored long enough, they will fall into a state of severe disrepair. Chimney maintenance is important to the life of your chimney. Shoddy workmanship, either when the chimney was first built, or during repairs can also be the reason restoration is necessary. As a result of the shoddy work, it is no longer possible to repair the damage, and the only option left for the mason is restoration.
