If you think there is a problem with your chimney, you may be wondering whether it can be repaired or whether you need to replace the whole chimney. Our experts can help you diagnose your chimney problems and advise you on whether these problems call for repair or replacement.

Replacements VS Repairs

Modern chimneys and fireplaces are built to last. If a portion of a chimney is damaged, it can usually be repaired without too much disruption to the fixture as a whole. In fact, the majority of today’s common chimney issues, including leaks, buildup and blockage, and small cracks or damage, can be solved without having to replace the whole chimney.

There are only a few reasons why we would look to completely replace a chimney:

  • Age: the chimney is very old, not up to modern standards, and potentially unsafe.
  • Significant damage: this can include a crack in the lining that extends the full length of the chimney down to the fireplace. Damage like this has the potential to lead to chimney collapse, which can cause more costly structural damage to the home and surroundings.
  • Homeowner request: the homeowner would like to have a new chimney system installed, maybe during a home renovation project.

If you think that your chimney is experiencing any of these problems, our expert Montgomery County PA chimney repair team can diagnose your chimney issues and help you choose the best solution for repairing or replacing your chimney.
