The days are hot, sunny, and perfect for engaging in outdoor fun with friends and family. We understand that many homeowners have a busy summer between vacationing, outdoor events, pool parties, and more, but don’t forget to schedule your chimney masonry repairs amidst all the chaos. Many people wonder why they can’t just put off their maintenance until right before the burning season. This is always an option, but we recommend getting it done now. Why? There are a few big reasons. Learn more below.
Better Quality Work, Easier Scheduling & Fewer Delays
One reason masonry repairs are best done in the summer is because the materials we use cure better in the summer. The temperature range is simply more appropriate, and there is less of a chance for bad weather, which could inhibit the treatment process. If you want your results to stand the test of time, scheduling repairs now is your best bet.
Better weather also means fewer delays. Many people put repairs off until later, which then forces them to delay the start of their burning season because of rain, snow, or cold weather. Finally, you should consider the fact that fall and winter is an especially busy time for us, sweeps. So now is a better time to schedule a time that is convenient for you. If you have a busy schedule, then make your appointment now to avoid the stress and hassle of rearranging your calendar later!
