Historic Chimney Restorations In Dedham MA
Homeowners in southern Massachusetts rely on Above & Beyond Chimney Sweep of Dedham for historic chimney restoration that takes old, damaged chimneys and makes them work – and look – like new again.
The greater Framingham area has so much to offer including a huge number of amazing historic homes. These dwellings are fascinating to look at, but keeping them in great shape often requires the services of professionals. One area that skilled technicians are necessary is historic chimney restoration projects.
Chimneys in Dedham homes built in the early 1900s and prior often require attention. For example, many chimneys in these historic homes don’t have liners and could therefore be dangerous to operate. Another example is chimneys that need to be brought up to current municipal codes for legal and safety reasons.
When Above & Beyond Chimney Sweep of Dedham performs historic chimney restoration, we take into consideration everything within the system that could cause safety and performance issues.
Focus Areas of Historic Chimney Restoration
Areas we pay special attention to include:
Make sure the flue is the proper size to vent the fireplace or other appliance.
Overall integrity of the chimney structure:
We address everything from chimney leaks to a faulty footing at the base of the chimney.
Damaged interior and exterior masonry:
Some level of chimney rebuilding/brick repair often is required to fully restore an older chimney.
Damaged roof flashing:
Warped or missing flashing provides free access for water to run into unseen areas of the home.
Historic chimney restoration projects often involve adding a new chimney liner or repairing the existing one.
Chimney crown repair:
Cracks are common in older chimney crowns; some can be repaired, others need to be rebuilt.
A damaged damper sometimes can be repaired, but a new one may be needed.
Chimney cap installation:
If your historic chimney has no cap, we’ll install one; damaged caps should be repaired or replaced.
All this and more goes into restoring chimneys of historic Dedham homes so they once again look beautiful and work safely and efficiently.
