Chimney Damper Repair, Cleaning, and Upgrades

Mild sticking of the damper is a first sign that you need to have the chimney inspected. Technicians with Masonry Waterproofing, and Drainage Masters can handle any and all inspection, cleaning and chimney damper repair you need to stay in safe operation.

What causes chimney damper failure?

An ineffective or defective damper will make it impossible to start and maintain a fire in your firebox, or it can cause a complete backup of smoke throughout the home. A build-up of creosote, ash, and burnt particulates can cause the damper operation to stick. High temperatures over time can cause warping. The need for chimney damper repair becomes a top priority if it quits functioning.

Chimney Damper Repair

The type of repair required for your fireplace damper will depend on what kind you have. A top sealing damper must be accessed and repaired from the roof. A throat damper is located right above the firebox. Our experienced technicians at Masonry Waterproofing, and Drainage Masters can handle either type and have it fixed quickly.

Fireplace Damper Repair and Cleaning

Regularly scheduled cleaning is an essential part of fireplace damper repair and maintenance. Allowing soot and creosote to build-up on the surface of the damper will cause it to seize up entirely eventually. It is also a fire hazard and can create the start of a devastating chimney blaze. We will thoroughly inspect the operation of your damper and clean any creosote and debris for free movement and activity.
