Although a jacket is still needed, it’s nice to be able to go for a walk and enjoy some sun and fresh air. As I take advantage of the ‘no rain’ days, I always like to look at the homes I pass to check out what types of upkeep homeowners are choosing to perform this spring.
I was surprised to find a few people on ladders. One was attempting to clean out the gutters, but a couple people were up by their chimneys. I found that interesting as that’s not a regular site. I noticed one homeowner cleaning out the top of his chimney. It was clear that animals were living in the chimney. The critters had a nice cozy home to live in, but now the homeowner has to clean up the mess left behind. Hopefully, he calls Superior Chimney for a chimney cap.
The next homeowner was a bit more concerned. You can tell he was picking at the mortar in between the bricks on his chimney. It was a very decorative chimney, but as I got closer, it was obvious that it was falling apart. For that type of restoration, you definitely need a specialist like the talented masons we have at Superior Chimney. It’s best he gets that checked out. Part of the chimney or fireplace inspections is to inspect the chimney outside. But if you already know there’s a problem, give us a call and we’ll go up on the roof for you, take pictures and explain exactly what is going on. Be sure to ‘like’ us on Facebook!
