Thank you for responding. Here is the work that was recently done:
Remove present connector pipes (smoke pipes) from chimney, eliminating them from points at which they are too close to combustible materials.
Supply & Install proper piping materials, re-locate insertion points, re-install into chimney.
Supply & Install cast aluminum cleanout / inspection access door on chimney wall to allow for present and future chimney inspection and thorough cleaning.
Boiler / WaterHeater flue cleaning, our standard cleaning fee.
Re-Seal the rubber gaskets around two sewer vent pipes with clear elastomeric caulking.
Here is the work that is suggested in the future. The above was Phase 1. Below are the other two phases recommended.
Grind out and Re-Point all 20 (twenty +/-) courses (rows) of chimney brickwork. All four sides of exterior chimney.
This includes all brick joints above roof flashing, horizontal and vertical.
Mortar joints (between brick) are damaged / missing due to exposure to weather over the years.
Old, weak mortar joints are ground out using a diamond blade wheel as thick as the original mortar joint.
Re-pointing replaces the loose / eroded mortar that was removed by the angle grinder wheel, creating a new outer mortar joint surface and strengthens the chimney without dismantling / re-building.
Note that re-pointing is a less expensive (approx 1/3 the cost) alternative to re-building and may be chosen if the chimney is generally secure but in need of repair.
Re-pointing will leave the current bricks in place and in the same position as present.
Supply and Install stainless steel chimney liner system for 2Boiler / 2WaterHeater flue.
Protects the original chimney structure by creating new pathway for exhaust fumes and moisture to pass through. Stops the erosion of the original clay flue and the un-lined flue sections… and ensures that dangerous gases are contained and properly evacuated from the home.
Based on this information, do I not have a roofer come and just have the Chimney people care for all of this in the Spring when they are able to do the work?
Thanks again for all your help.
