The NFPA says that annual chimney inspections, even if a fireplace has not been used much are very important for safety. Cleaning is recommended to be sure no obstructions from wind blowing material into your chimney top or animals and birds nesting in your chimney has occurred. The worst situation is when excessive creosote buildup is inside your chimney. This material is highly flammable and the cause of most chimney fires.
We are experts at repairs and rebuilding of masonry brick and mortar along with replacement of chase tops and caps. If the structure is deteriorating and water is seeping into your home along the flashing, through the top or into the missing mortar you should get this looked at immediately. The longer chimney problems are left unattended, the more expensive the repairs will be. Waterproofing may be used, but in many cases cement chimney crowns or tuck pointing is required to remedy leaky chimneys. If your chimney needs to be rebuilt, that is our specialty - decades of experience as masons allow our techs to provide the best rebuilding and restoration service.
Many generations of Silliman’s have been building and repairing the city of Louisville. John Silliman continues that tradition as the 7th generation of masons in his family to offer his expert services.
Silliman Contracting Group was created to bring quality and integrity of work back to the masonry repair and restoration business. Louisville Chimney Sweep & Repair was born out of that same concept; quality and integrity with the expertise that only Mr. Silliman can provide his customers.
