We Provide Quality Tuckpointing

There are some things you know about chimney inspection, upkeep, and repair. For instance, if you use your chimney a lot, you know that over time, creosote forms and needs to be removed by a professional chimney sweep in order to avoid the possibility of a chimney fire and also to control odor. This is why it’ so important to have your chimney cleaned at least annually. You probably also know that when you use your chimney a lot, things can crack or chip, sometimes just from the action of normal house settling. This is another thing that a quality chimney sweep company like Chim Cheroo Chimney Service Inc will look for when they do an annual inspection and cleaning. But do you know what it means to have your chimney tuckpointed? This is a common repair job that chimneys need, and one that the professionals at Chim Cheroo Chimney Service have performed many times.

Now that spring is here, it’s a great time to have your annual chimney inspection and sweeping done. But first, take a walk around your home and give your chimney a look over. Take special notice of the condition of the mortar. Touch it to see if it feels soft and spongy, maybe even crumbly. Look at the ground around the chimney, too. Do you see little flakes or specks of white on the ground? If this is the case, it means that spalling is occurring. Spalling is a condition that occurs when water gets into the brick and mortar of your chimney, causing the surface area to peel or flake off. This weakens the surface area and can cause structural damage to occur.

Tuckpointing

When a professional from Chim Cheroo Chimney Service comes in and inspects your chimney, one thing he’ll be looking for is spalling. If this condition is present, the best way to fix it is through tuckpointing. In this process, the mortar is carefully picked away, and then new mortar is installed. We make sure that the new mortar is the perfect consistency and composition to fill in the gaps and restore strength to your chimney structure. At Chim Cheroo, we know that the appearance of the chimney is important as well, so we make sure to pick the perfect color mortar to match the existing mortar, so that this transition is seamless and natural-looking.

You may be tempted to complete this process yourself, but it works best with the tools and experience that a qualified chimney service can provide. Chim Cheroo Chimney Service has been providing excellent service to the residents of north central Ohio for over 30 years. You know you can trust their CSIA certified professionals to get your tuckpointing done right. We aren’t satisfied until you are, so give us a call today to set up your spring chimney inspection and cleaning and any repair work your chimney may need.

We Carry Reputable Brands Such as Osburn and Regency

There are times when it’s fine to buy off-brand products. Store brand cereals can be just fine. If you need a watch for everyday wear, it’s probably okay to buy a discount store brand. Some people lose their sunglasses a lot, and buying several pairs of cheap sunglasses just makes sense. But there are products that it’s better to just go ahead and get the best quality available. If you want a car that’s going to last, buy quality. The same can be true for furniture or carpeting for your home. Quality lasts.

Did you know that if your wood stove or fireplace isn’t working efficiently, creosote will build up more quickly? Creosote, that nasty substance that builds up as smoke is released from your wood fire, builds upon the interior of your chimney the more you use your fireplace or wood stove. This is an extremely flammable substance that at even as little as an eighth of an inch of buildup can catch stray embers from your fire and cause a dangerous chimney fire. If you believe that your fireplace system needs an update, give Chim Cheroo Chimney Service Inc a call today at 419-752-2231.
