Chimney & Masonry Experts
These photos feature the progression of a chimney that Omega corbeled out and repaired.
A corbel is important to creating a larger top (cantilever) on the chimney. While the cantilever is important for the life of the chimney because it doesn't allow all the water that strikes the top of the chimney to run down the body of the chimney.
Please note the difference in the cantilever before and after the chimney was repaired.
Chimney Sweep & Chimney Safety
Chimneys need periodic examination and thorough cleaning to maintain their efficiency and to reduce the chance of a chimney fire. The National Chimney Safety Institute estimates that in the U.S. there are over 22,300 U.S. residential structure fires caused by chimneys, fireplaces, or chimney connectors biennially. Most of those could have been prevented by annual maintenance and cleaning. If you want to avoid a fire and improve your chimney’s efficiency, let the chimney restoration experts at Omega Construction help. When it comes to Ann Arbor chimney repair and cleaning, there’s no one better.
A chimney fire is not only isolated to wood burning chimney places. Chimney fires can be caused by excess creosote buildup in the structure of your chimney. The heat from a chimney fire can be in excess of 2,000 degrees which can warp and damage your chimney and spread to the home. Thankfully, with the right care and repair, you can prevent this from happening.
Prevent this with a single phone call. Our trained sweeps will inspect your chimney from top to bottom before and after the cleaning. You deserve to have the peace of mind knowing that your chimney is safe for use.
Assess the structure
Check for blockages (which could cause carbon monoxide intrusion)

A thorough inspection of all visual systems will be completed and you will have peace of mind knowing that your chimney is in safe operating condition.

A sandstone slab was installed over an angled area on the side of the chimney because the chimney and fireplace had wetness issues, and the bare angled surface contributed to that. The slab looks nice. The stone was cleaned and together with new mortar from the tuck pointing looks better. A crown was installed at the top of the chimney to drain water better since it was not running off well. The fireplace is now dry and the exterior looks good." Patricia H.
