Preventive Maintenance Saves You Time, Money & Hassle
Let’s say you’re given two possible scenarios: 1) Spend a small amount of time and money now to avoid damages or 2) Spend lots of time and money on major repair jobs later.
What seems like the better route?
We’re guessing the former seems more appealing, but that doesn’t stop countless homeowners from putting off preventive maintenance every single year. Many simply don’t find it worthwhile to spend the money on things like waterproofing, inspections, and more. Unfortunately, this tends to cost them dearly in the long run.
By scheduling annual inspections, regular sweepings, and the like, you guarantee yourself stress-free, low-hassle burning seasons every fall and winter. Plus, the experts from reputable organizations like the CSIA, F.I.R.E., and NCSG agree.
Investing in preventive care is the best way to keep your system functioning efficiently and safely for years on end. Here at Brickliners Custom Masonry & Chimney Services, we have the training and qualifications to assist our customers with it all.
Putting More Money in Your Pocket
So, how exactly does preventive maintenance ensure more money stays in your pocket every year? It’s simple really. The longer damage is left unrepaired, the more expensive repairs will be. For example, a small leak that’s just started takes a lot less time and materials to repair than reconstructing a whole crown. And if water gets to your liner and starts wreaking havoc, then you’re looking at a full relining job — which will really put a dent in your bank account!
Along with this, damage in one area of the chimney can quickly spread to other parts of the system without preventative measures. All in all, preventing damage from occurring in the first place or repairing it early on is always cheaper than hiring for repair work after the damage has already been done.
Book an Inspection
The first step is to schedule annual inspections. This is easy and there’s really no better way to guarantee the safety of your home and family throughout the burning season. One of the biggest things we look for during an inspection is creosote build-up and if your levels are concerning, we will suggest having this substance removed.
Additionally, if we see any issues that need repaired, we can get you on our schedule.
Book a Chimney Sweep
You will need a chimney sweep if you have creosote buildup. In fact, you should have a chimney sweep every year to ensure that your appliance is working safely and efficiently.
So, what can you expect once you hire our team to sweep your chimney? Because we stay educated and up-to-date on all of our certifications, we know all there is to know when it comes to keeping your system free of creosote. We use specialized brushes and vacuums that guarantee nothing is missed and no mess is left behind.
