Few homeowners get excited over a chimney rebuild. In fact, due to your chimney’s inaccessibility, it may be the furthest thing from your mind. But your chimney, while inaccessible to you, is an easy entry point into your home for insects, water and debris, so it deserves your attention. It’s common for chimneys to be damaged or rotten without your knowledge; or worse yet, your chimney may become a fire hazard or a breeding ground for critters. With a little help from Phillips, you can take your chimney back from the demons of decay!
Is your smokestack shabby? If paint is peeling or boards appear loose, it’s time to call a professional for a chimney inspection. Failing caulk or leaks through loose (or rotten) boards can allow water inside the chimney chaseway. A damaged fireplace insert or heating appliance could result, creating a fire hazard. Additionally, water leaking through your chimney’s wood siding could leave your home’s drywall vulnerable to mold, insects and rot.
A chimney rebuild using insect-, mold-, heat- and water-resistant fiber cement siding can breathe new life into your old chimney. And when installed properly by professionals, fiber cement siding, paired with our 60-year flexible elastomeric sealant, will not only repair leak damage, but will also provide years of future home protection. Your home will be made more safe and beautiful, since fiber cement siding comes in various colors and textures to match the rich look of your home’s natural wood. With a little help from Phillips, you’ll be the envy of your neighbors!
