What Do I Need To Do To Maintain The Outside Of My Chimney?

The chimney goes from inside of your attic to the exterior. The area where the chimney meets the exterior of you building is often subject to leaks and other types of deteriorations at the structural level. In this respect, you should always check this part of your roof for potential problems.

The metal pipe from inside your chimney can also be the source of trouble. To keep it in a good shape, you should clean it with the help of a wire brush, in order to make sure that it is free from rust and other damaging elements.

The rusted area should be treated with special types of paint, namely the ones that resist to high temperatures. At the same time, you need to make sure all connections are tightened up with screws, and to check on them from time to time.

You also should make sure that you have a waterproof chimney. This can be done by applying water sealant to the outside of your chimney. This can help prevent moisture-related problems.

Another good thing to do in order to make sure your chimney is in a good state is to have it inspected by an masonry restoration expert team at least once a year.
