The Chimney Removal Process
If excessive water falls into your chimney, it can get into the chimney flue or the chimney liner, which will cause rapid deterioration. Debris and animals are also a major concern that impact your chimney. Just as your gutters collect debris and water, your chimney does that same; and it only takes a small amount of debris and a heated chimney to create a fire hazard. Chimneys are also a common entry points for a variety of unwanted pests, ranging from squirrels to birds. A chimney cap, pan, or shroud will prevent these pesky critters from entering your property and causing problems.
But perhaps you are too late and your chimney is damaged beyond repair and you are now looking at chimney removal. You’ve come to the right place! We at Expressway have 20 plus years of experience with removing chimneys and providing a safe, painless process for the homeowner.
There are several reasons for wanting to remove the chimney, including:
- Badly damaged stack
- Home insulation
- Local pollution ordinances/LEED Certification
- Plans to discontinue use
- Roof leakage
- Reclaiming wasted space
All of these are valid reasons, although some require additional considerations, such as whether a full removal will be necessary or if the removal will cost more than simply repairing or maintaining the chimney.
Pollution ordinances are more common in the UK than the US, but often revolve around the type of fuel being burnt, as well as the amount and quality of emissions being produced.
To a much smaller degree, a chimney which is still in use may also have some minor impact on your efforts to gain LEED certification on a home renovation. This is almost invariably tied to emissions and heating issues. Sometimes sealing the flu or changing the type of fuel you use will remedy this problem without the need for a costly removal. Simply having a chimney will not affect your ability to pursue a LEED certification rating.
Chimney Removal The Safe Way
Before any chimney removal we always want to make sure the homeowner understands the safety issues involved. Such as the cost involved with the chimney removal, the effects and the overall process. There are two main parts when talking about a chimney removal. These are the chimney stack and the chimney breast.
The removal of the chimney breast will not always be needed. This will need to be determined by the company doing the removal. Which is based on how your chimney is installed and your budget. For more information regarding this we suggest have us at Expressway take a look at your chimney and go over all of your options.
