Does Your Chimney Need Professional Attention?
If you can’t remember the last time you scheduled an inspection, your chimney may already be manifesting the signs that it needs professional care. Moisture is one of the big concerns with chimneys, and efflorescence is among the common signs that you have a moisture problem. Efflorescence is a powdery substance on the brick often described as white staining. Deteriorating mortar joints need to be repaired as soon as possible as that problem will only worsen. Thin slices of chimney tile in your fireplace are called shaling and a sign that something is wrong with your flue. Spalling is a form of chimney deterioration and refers to the bits of masonry you’ll find near the bottom of the structure. Damage to the crown requires immediate attention as well, and chimney problems can also manifest inside your home, such as damage to wallpaper and other finished surfaces near your chimney.
The Benefits of Chimney Repair
Timely chimney repair is only going to save you money in the end. It’s going to help preserve the value of your home, and whatever you spend now is nothing compared to what you’ll spend if you allow your current chimney problems to worsen. Hiring a proven contractor like Becker’s is also going to give you peace of mind that your chimney and your home are well-maintained and protected.
The Benefits of Chimney Maintenance
Most chimneys don’t get the regular care they need, and the shame of it is that most major chimney repair and rebuild projects could’ve been avoided. It’s why we recommend annual chimney inspection and cleaning, and if a chimney needs maintenance, have it completed right away as doing so will save you time and money in the long run. A well-maintained chimney can last practically forever, and you’ll significantly reduce the risk of expensive repairs and damage that can extend into the home.

A Full Range of Chimney Services
Becker’s offers all of the services you need to keep your chimney in great condition. That includes chimney inspections and routine maintenance, such as chimney cleaning and leak prevention. We also perform chimney repair, including repointing, and full chimney teardowns and rebuilds.
Excess moisture is among the leading causes of chimney deterioration, and we can prevent it. We’ll apply a sealant to your chimney that will keep water out and protect brick, mortar, concrete, and more.
The NFPA recommends cleaning your chimney once a year and preferably in October prior to heavy use. Our cleaning process eliminates dirt and creosote buildup and helps to keep your home allergen-free.
Chimney caps keep the rain out but also protect against birds and other unwanted animals. Installing or replacing a chimney cap can also make a big difference in the overall energy efficiency of your home.
Becker’s installs and repairs chimney liners as well. This is the passage that allows flue gases to safely exit your home, and an effective liner will also protect the chimney walls from heat and corrosion.
The mortar between the bricks of your chimney can eventually deteriorate. Repointing is the process through which we restore those joints and prevent moisture from getting in and causing damage.
When a chimney deteriorates to the point that chimney repair is not feasible, a rebuild is the solution. We’ll tear the old chimney away, and we can even optimize the structure as we rebuild it.
A Clean Chimney Is an Efficient Chimney
Our cleaning services will remove all of the creosote, soot, and dirt from your chimney. Those substances are fire hazards, but their accumulation also leads to blockages. Those blockages interfere with the efficient flow of combustion gases up and out of the chimney, and when that happens, your fireplace or stove isn’t going to burn or heat as well as it should.
Comprehensive Chimney Inspection Services
Becker’s will send an expert to your home to inspect every aspect of your chimney. Our expert can recommend cleaning and maintenance as needed. If more substantial care is required, we can explore your chimney repair options or even a rebuild with you, and we’ll give you an accurate and fair estimate for any chimney services that you’re considering.
