Best Chimney Repair and Rebuild in Louisville
The most common chimney repairs and rebuilds are caused by one of three things:
While two of the three reasons are things out of your control, it’s amazing how much neglect plays a part when it can be completely avoidable. However, when you purchase a new home or even have a new one built, you cannot always anticipate issues that arise from poor maintenance or building habits. That’s why, when in doubt about maintenance, it’s extremely important to have your chimney, fireplace, furnace or other heating and venting systems routinely inspected.
Part of the inspection involves a video camera being run up through the system to check on internal damage to the areas that are not easily visible. A picture is taken of anything that is seen that may need to be addressed at some point. You are also encouraged to watch as this is done. Once problems or potential issues are seen and documented, we discuss with you all the options and get you as much information as possible so you can make the best decision for you and your family.

What’s the Difference between Repairs and Rebuilds
Repairs are just that, repairing a part of the system that has been broken or damaged. Rebuilds are sometimes called restorations and they consist of rebuilding or restoring a portion of the chimney system. This could be restoring a ceramic chimney liner or rebuilding a portion of a masonry chimney that has been damaged by lightning or a fire.
