Leak in Chimney Jacksonville FL

Posted on June 2, 2013 at 10:09 PM Comments comments (28)
Water leaks in and around chimneys can be hard to diagnose unless you understand how your fireplace and chimney are constructed.  In Jacksonville FL homeowners turn to All American Specialty Services for the best diagnosis and repair service at the fairest prices. Call 904-422-0504 or visit www.allamericanspecialtyservices.com for more information.  In many cases a water leak can be determined just by the location of where you see the water.  If the water is at the ceiling inside the room or on the sheet rock or wall, it is likely the leak is at the flashing.  If you see the water inside the fireplace or firebox, it is most likely coming straight down he chimney due to a faulty or missing chimney cap or due to blowing rain.  If you can hear dripping on top of the fireplace or at the ceiling but cannot see any other signs of water, it is likely due to a faulty chase pan.  In any of these cases other factors could be at play and they are all extremely important issues that should be resolved as soon as possible.  A small water leak can quickly turn into a major repair if it is not fixed in a timely manner.  All American Specialty Services believes in giving this advice to you because we care about your home and family, we believe in offering service beyond what you expect, and we believe in offering the fairest prices if you find that any water leak in a chimney in or around Jacksonville FL is too much for you to handle.  Please visit our website and see pictures of work we have completed and read more about us and what we believe.
 

Fireplace Jacksonville FL

Posted on March 24, 2013 at 12:13 PM Comments comments (1018)
In north Florida it can come as a shock how many homes actually have a fireplace. But the ambiance and added value it adds to any property is well worth maintaining. All too often fireplace and chimney systems in the Jacksonville, Fleming island, Orange Park, Middleburg, Ponte Vedra, St Augustine, and other surrounding areas are over looked as an appliance that requires regular maintenance. Whether a fireplace is used once a year or a hundred times they are all subject to the same weather elements and the exterior portions including the chase, crown, flashing, chimney cap, chase pan, are all in need of regular inspection. There are literally thousands of chase pans, aka chase cover or chimney cover, in need of replacement. To read more about the extreme importance of this part of your fireplace and chimney system go to www.allamericanspecialtyservices.com click on the chimneys page and scroll down for an entire section dedicated to chase pans in Jacksonville FL. The interior components of a fireplace and chimney system are just as important and also require an annual inspection. Creosote build up is not only a fire hazard but it is also acidic. Yes! It will eat your metal fireplace from the inside! This means that without regular preventative maintenance you may find your home with an unsafe fireplace not only lowering the value of your home but putting your family and prized possessions at risk! For more information or to schedule an inspection, chimney sweep, or chimney repair call 904-422-0504 and have the best value fireplace and chimney professionals take care of your home and family.

Chimney Caps Jacksonville FL

Posted on September 25, 2012 at 8:01 PM Comments comments (56)
Some people are surprised at the number of fireplaces and chimneys in Jacksonville FL.  Thousands of these fireplaces and chimneys either have a damaged or rusted chimney cap, or even worse no chimney cap at all!  Chimney caps serve more than one purpose.  One of the most important is that they stop the what sometimes seems to be the never ending rain in Jacksonville FL from entering into the chimney and fireplace.  In both prefabricated chimneys and masonry chimneys water is a source of damage that cannot be overlooked. 
 
With a masonry chimney and fireplace with no chimney cap water will continually soak the clay flue tiles and gather on the smoke shelf.  Once it has settled on the smoke shelf it will seep into the backwall of the fireplace causing irreversable damage.  The fire bricks will eventually become brittle and the wall will begin to crumble.  By adding a full size chimney cap as seen on www.allamericanspecialtyservices.com home owners can stop the water from creating further damage and at that point any water damage can be repaired
 
All Prefabricated fireplaces and chimneys should have a chimney cap listed by the manufacturer.  These fireplaces and chimneys differ frim masonry in that they are contructed mostly of metal.  What happens when water is continually in contact with untreated metal? It Rusts!  By stopping water from ever entering the chimney or fireplace with a chimney cap home owners can save thousands of dollars.  If a chimney cap issue is not addressed and water rusts through the firebox the whole system will need to be removed and a fix of a couple hundred dollars will turn into a couple thousand.  Preventative maintnance is best for the longevity of your fireplace and chimney system.
 
Another purpose of a chimney cap is to prevent animals from entering the system.  In both masonry and prefabricated chimneys and fireplaces with no chimney cap there is no safe solution to stopping the intrusion of animals into your home.  From birds, to raccoons, to snakes, and squirrels all these animals are active chimney critters and will exploit the opportunity to enter a home and reak havok! 
 
If your fireplace and chimney has no chimney cap it is time to call 904-422-0504 before its too late!

Once upon time there was a fireplace and chimney in Jacksonville FL.  It was so proud to be put into a home for a family to enjoy for years to come.  After years and years of enjoyment the fireplace developed a cough so the homeowner called the professionals at All American Specialty Services to diagnose and solve the problem.  All American Specialty Services sent a chimney sweep to help the sick chimney.  The chimney sweep showed up on time, was knowledgeable, and courteous.  After checking the fireplace inside the chimney sweep climbed on the roof and found that the chimney had a rusty chase pan.  The professional chimney sweep knew to inform the homeowner right away as to the series of problems that would plague the fireplace and chimney.  After providing a chimney sweep, chase pan, and chimney cap repair, the fireplace was back in tip top shape and ready for many more years of enjoyment!

Chase pans in jacksonville FL

Posted on August 13, 2012 at 5:08 PM Comments comments (463)
As I drive around the biggest city in the United States, I can't help but notice all the rusty chase pans!  A chase pan covers the top of a prefabricated fireplace and chimney.  Its purpose is to keep water out of the hollow chase that the chimney is housed inside.  Once this pan rusts to the point that water penetrates there is nothing stopping the water from leaking down into or on top of the firebox.  If this problem is not addressed quickly the firebox will rust through and the entire fireplace and chimney system will need to be replaced.  So a $300-$600 for a typical chase pan repair, becomes a repair costing well into the thousands of dollars!  I understand  that down here in Jacksonville Florida our burning season is not very long but our rain and humidity season is year round!  This speeds the rusting process and makes it even more important to replace your chase pan once it begins to rust.  All American Specialty Services can fix your chase pan quickly and at the best price around!
