Resolving Complex Chimney Issues in Charlotte & Huntersville
The best thing you can do to keep your chimney working well and serving you and your family for as long as it should is show it some professional TLC. When you take proactive steps to care for your chimney system (like scheduling annual inspections and cleanings), you can prevent many major issues from arising down the line. However, despite having regularly scheduled maintenance, even chimneys that are properly cared for can occasionally require repairs.
After all, your chimney has many different parts working together for optimal function, just like your own body. When even one of these parts isn’t working properly, it can cause the entire system to fail or operate at a lower level of efficiency and safety. That’s why it’s so important to schedule dedicated chimney repairs in Lake Norman as soon as a problem is identified. You can rely on our team at SirVent to find the perfect solution to resolve any issue.

Moisture, creosote, extreme temperatures, severe weather, animal tampering, and shifts within the home (to name a few) can really take a toll on your chimney system, requiring dedicated repairs to get your chimney back to its prime.
Some of the most common repairs we make as a result are:
- Chimney cap replacement – Strong storms and animals crawling inside can cause your chimney cap to come loose or break free altogether. These things can also be responsible for denting or damaging the chimney cap. If your chimney needs a replacement cap, our pros can help you decide which cap is best for your system and properly install it.
- Flue relining – The flue liner has a tough job and can end up deteriorated beyond repair. In these situations, we can reline your flue so that you can enjoy your chimney for years and years. Rely on us for dedicated flue repairs as well.
- Damper replacement or repair – The chimney damper has traditionally been located in the throat of the system, making it especially susceptible to damage. If your damper is difficult to open or close, or is otherwise damaged, we may be able to repair it or offer you a replacement solution, like a new and efficient energy-top damper.
- Masonry repair – Brick and mortar are the perfect materials for a chimney because they’re porous and incredibly durable. However, things like moisture, shifts within the home, creosote and high temperatures can still take a toll on your masonry. If your masonry is cracking or crumbling, we can help with our dedicated waterproofing options.
Troubleshooting Any Problem to Keep Your Family Safe
If your chimney is not operating at its optimal performance, it is likely going to create a lot of discomfort and negative consequences, ranging from increased smoke and stains and decreased heating. In addition to these unpleasant effects, you can also be exposed to carbon monoxide poisoning, which could get you and your family very sick. The trouble is that because the chimney is not viewable to our eyes, it is rarely easy to immediately spot where the chimney is malfunctioning unless you have professional experience.
In some cases, your flue may simply be improperly sized, either too small or too big, to vent the chimney. Alternatively, there may be water damage deep inside the chimney, which causes fireboxes to rust over and mold to grow. If either of these problems occur, you will likely be suffering not only from an inefficient chimney, but an extremely smoky one. Whatever the issue is, however, you can count on our knowledgeable experts at SirVent to find the right answer.
