Springtime in Lake Geneva is a wonderful time of year! Lake Geneva is beautiful any time of year, but in the spring, you get to get out and enjoy the fresh air, the pale green of the new leaves and soft grass, and the brilliant blue sky. There are so many things to do in Lake Geneva, especially if you love the great outdoors. Take a walk around Geneva Lake Shore Path, or hit the Apple Barn Orchard and Winery. Maybe what you’re looking forward to is a little fishing, soaking up the warm sunshine while waiting for a tug on your fishing line. Whatever it is you’ve been missing throughout the snowy winter, finally it’s time to do it! But before you start making entertainment plans, make sure that you’ve taken care of some of the spring household chores first. One of those chores is making sure that your chimney is in tip-top shape! There’s no better place to call than Jiminy Chimney Masonry and Repair [https://www.jiminychimney.com/] when you’re looking to have your chimney inspection and maintenance work taken care of.
Every fireplace owner knows that it is important to have your fireplace cleaned and inspected on a yearly basis. One very important part that we’ll be checking when we come in is the state of your masonry. Even though a chimney is a sturdy structure, over time it can become damaged just through the process of weathering. This is especially true of the masonry. If you have been noticing that the mortar looks soft or crumbly, or maybe even that there are white specks and flakes on the ground around the chimney, it’s a pretty good chance that your chimney needs tuckpointing.Tuckpointing is simply the process of removing the old, worn out mortar and replacing it with fresh mortar that matches the parts that don’t need to be replaced. We have the tools and the techniques to replace your old mortar and make your chimney look as good as when it was constructed!
Warm Weather Repairs
If you are looking to have tuckpointing or other masonry work done, the best time is the spring or summer when the temperatures begin to warm up. This is because mortar sets best when it’s not too cold. To really get it to set up properly, it’s best if the temperature is above forty degrees.

One way to find a quality chimney company is to look at their credentials. We are Chimney Safety Institute of America certified and members of the National Chimney Sweep Guild.

Now that it’s springtime, give us a call and let us take care of your chimney so you can go out and enjoy the great outdoors!
