Why Summer is the Perfect Season to Restore Your Failing Chimney Southwest Marietta, GA
anglins chimney repair

As summer approaches, homeowners often focus on outdoor activities and home improvement projects. While many may prioritize landscaping or exterior renovations, one critical area that shouldn’t be overlooked is the chimney. A failing chimney not only detracts from the aesthetic appeal of your home but also poses safety risks and compromises indoor air quality. The following are reasons why summer is the ideal time to restore your failing chimney to ensure year-round comfort and safety for your family.

1. Ideal Weather Conditions

Summer offers optimal weather conditions for chimney repairs and restoration. With warmer temperatures and longer daylight hours, masonry work can proceed smoothly and efficiently without the challenges posed by inclement weather. Whether it is repairing damaged brickwork, replacing deteriorating mortar or addressing water infiltration issues, summer provides the perfect climate for masons to tackle chimney restoration projects with precision and attention to detail.

2. Minimize Disruption to Daily Life

Chimney restoration projects often require access to the interior and exterior of the home, which can disrupt daily routines and activities. By scheduling chimney repairs during the summer months, homeowners can minimize disruption to their daily lives, as outdoor living spaces become the focal point of leisure and entertainment. Additionally, with windows and doors open more frequently, the odor associated with chimney repairs can dissipate more quickly, ensuring indoor comfort for residents.

3. Addressing Water Damage and Moisture Issues

Summer is an opportune time to address water damage and moisture issues that may be compromising the integrity of your chimney. Heavy rains and humidity during the summer months can exacerbate existing water infiltration problems, leading to further deterioration of masonry materials and potential structural damage. By proactively addressing these issues through chimney restoration, homeowners can safeguard their investment and prevent costly repairs down the line.

4. Enhance Energy Efficiency

A failing chimney can contribute to energy inefficiency in the home, allowing conditioned air to escape and outdoor air to infiltrate living spaces. Summer provides an ideal opportunity to seal gaps, cracks, and leaks in the chimney structure, improving energy efficiency and reducing utility costs. By restoring the chimney’s integrity and ensuring proper ventilation, homeowners can enjoy greater comfort and savings year-round.

5. Prepare for Fireplace Season

While summer may seem like an unlikely time to think about fireplace use, it is the perfect opportunity to prepare for the upcoming heating season. Chimney restoration projects completed during the summer months ensure that your fireplace is safe, functional and ready to provide warmth and ambiance when cooler temperatures arrive. By addressing any underlying issues now, homeowners can enjoy peace of mind and uninterrupted fireplace enjoyment during the fall and winter months.

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.

Penelope Greensmith

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.
