It’s easy to see that repairs are needed when smoke fills the room, a fire is almost impossible to start, or there is water in your fireplace. Other issues can escape even the most diligent homeowners.
Our CSIA-Certified technicians can uncover potential issues that may, if not addressed, cause expensive damages, house fires, or carbon monoxide poisoning. Some of these are caused by everyday use, the frequency of use, type of wood used, animals or birds, and even extreme weather, such as the wind, rain, storms, tornadoes, and lightning.

The materials used in building a chimney are susceptible to deterioration when exposed to the elements. This deterioration is accelerated when exposed to the freezing and thawing process, which is a normal occurrence in West Michigan. Prompt chimney leak repair can save thousands of dollars in damages.
