Bachman’s Roofing division ensures all aspects of your roof are handled correctly including your chimney.
The areas around chimneys can be a leading cause of leaks, so properly installing the flashing and making it leak proof is what our roofing team members focus on.
At Bachman’s we specialize in all types of chimney maintenance, brick/stone, masonry and restoration as well as rebuilding fireplaces and preventing leaks from occurring within a fireplace insert.
Some of the chimney work we offer includes:
Waterproofing/Repair & Restoration
Whether the chimney is big or small, we offer a range of repairs to chimney systems. From relining the flue to leaky flashing to masonry repair and chimney rebuilding.
One of the most common sources of water damage is from missing chimney caps. We help solve this situation by reconstructing the back walls of fireplaces, returning them to their original pristine condition.
Wood Burning/Freestanding Stove Maintenance
A wood burning stove, or freestanding stove, is not installed into a fireplace like a fireplace insert. Instead, the freestanding stove is sitting on legs or a pedestal. Just like a furnace, it’s a good idea to schedule regular maintenance on your stove to keep it in optimal condition. We can perform inspections on your freestanding stove to check for signs of deterioration like leaks, warping or cracks.
Another common problem with chimneys is poorly built crowns. If yours is allowing water penetration or posing a fire hazard, our team members can properly construct a concrete one helping to guarantee no cracks.
Install Chimney Caps
Have you ever had a bird fly into your heater? Does moisture get into the chimney? The best way to prevent moisture from rain and snow, leaves and animals from getting into your chimney is to install a chimney cap.
Replace Chase Covers
The chase of your chimney refers to the decorative wood or metal surrounding your chimney. A chase cover fits over your chimeney’s chase to prevent water from entering your chimney. Chase covers that are leaking, damaged or made from masonry are a potential hazard for your metal fireplace. We can eliminate such problems, before they cause further damage to your roof by replacing the chase covers.
Water Leak & Condensation Resolution & Repair
