Do You Need Chimney Repair This Summer? Southwest Marietta, GA

During the winter, your chimney is exposed to significant weather changes that can lead to damage. The summer season can be an ideal time to identify any potential issues to get your home ready for next fall and winter. There are a few things you can look for to ensure your chimney is working at optimal condition. Here are three signs you may need chimney repair this summer.

Chimney Crown Damage

The chimney crown is designed to protect the rest of the structure from water damage by diverting rainwater away from the flue. If there are cracks and chipping, water can seep in and lead to expensive chimney repair. This could affect the structural integrity of your chimney and lead to collapsing and other potentially serious problems. Blockages can also occur as pests and birds infiltrate the damaged chimney crown.

Flue Cracks

Cracks in your flue may lead to carbon monoxide leaks throughout your home. If you ignore these chimney repair issues, you could increase the risk of a fire during the winter as heat escapes your home. There are many reasons cracks in your flue can occur, so it is important to schedule an inspection to determine the exact cause. Shifts in your foundation are a common source of this damage. If not addressed promptly, your chimney could tilt and fall, which could kill you or your pets and create expensive damage to the rest of your home.

White Stains on Your Chimney

White stains can be a signal of moisture evaporation leaving salt deposits on the surface of your chimney. Excess moisture can also lead to mold and mildew growth and other health concerns for your household. Chimney repair services can reduce your risk of these health hazards and protect the structural integrity against further damage.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
