Don’t neglect your chimney this summer

GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) Spring and summer is the time of year to plug away at a long “honey do” list. One area that you don’t want to ignore when it comes to annual maintenance is your chimney. Our expert Ken Hancock of Hancock Chimney Services says now is the time to get your chimney checked out.

Your chimney went through a brutal winter. Wind is the biggest cause of chimney damage. It drives moisture into the bricks, which freezes and breaks them apart. You want to make sure your brick and mortar is intact. Hancock Chimney Services can repair your brick and mortar and waterproof your chimney.

Hancock does a complete inspection of your chimney. They look inside it, run a specialized camera inside to look for cracks and breaks, sweep it out, clean the fireplace, and go on the roof for a visual inspection. They keep your home clean during the process by putting down runners on the carpet, tarping off the front of the fireplace, and using high powered vacuums to contain dust.

Hancock Chimney Services is certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America. Right now they’re offering a deal to eightWest viewers. Mention you saw them on eightWest and get $25 off any sweep or inspection this week only. Call (616) 534-4228 or (616) 396-4046.
