Came home after a long weekend away to water coming through the bedroom ceiling. I called Good Roofers first thing the next morning to take a look and they were out within the day.
Great value, great service!! Fixed my roof on extremely short notice over the weekend. Will have them back to have some other work carried out in the new year.
I've been incredibly happy with Good Roofers. They repaired my roof quickly and efficiently. The cost was reasonable but most important they came out and fixed it the same day which was fantastic as it really got that weight off my mind. Highly recommended.
CHIMNEY CLEANING Calgary ALBERTA
We love helping families enjoy the warm, cosy moments by the fireplace safely. With easy scheduling, free inspections, skilled workers and state of the art equipment, we make sure the whole process is as simple and enjoyable as possible for you. At Good Roofers, we use a wire brush that is suited to the size of your chimney to scrub residue from the interior walls. As part of the service, tarps will be placed at the bottom of the fireplace and efforts will be made to keep mess to the minimum.
The chimney uses the pressure difference caused by a hot column of gas to create a draught and draw air over the hot coals or wood enabling continued combustion. Chimneys may be straight or contain many changes in direction. During normal operation, a layer of creosote builds up on the inside of the chimney, restricting the flow. The creosote can also catch fire, setting the chimney and the building alight. The chimney must be swept to remove the soot. We also repair and replace soffit and fascia in Calgary.
As a fire burns in a fireplace, the air from the room goes through the grate and fuels the fire. As the fire burns, it releases numerous gases which rise, as they are lighter than the surrounding air. These gases then escape up the chimney and are released into the atmosphere.
As these substances pass through the chimney, a substance commonly referred to as soot begins to accumulate on the walls. This includes a flammable substance called creosote. Over time, these deposits can begin to obstruct and eventually completely block the chimney.
Such an obstruction can lead to an inefficient, and potentially unsafe, fireplace. This can be explained by the fact that a well-functioning chimney is necessary not only to allow potentially harmful gases to escape from the room, but also to ensure that the fire burns efficiently.
As hot air ascends in the chimney, the fire sucks in more air from the room through the grate, in order to fill the space that has been left. Without this continuous supply of air, the fire would burn itself out. Deposits of flammable substances such as creosote also have the potential to cause chimney fires. Thus, a clean chimney is also a safer, more efficient chimney.
PROFESSIONAL CHIMNEY SWEEPERS IN CALGARY
It typically takes about minutes to sweep an Open Fire place in Calgary. Most appliances are swept using power sweeping equipment. However, on some occasions we do revert to the use of the old rods and brush method (if it proves to be effective for your chimney).
Here are the things we basically do to get the ball rolling:
- We perform visual inspection of the flue, fireplace, etc to ensure that the customer is aware of any risk factors that are obvious
- We check for chimney tar or creosote.
- We check for adequate air supply and that vents are function properly.
- We carry out a smoke evacuation test.
- We do a ground level inspection of the stack, cowling and pots to make sure that they are in reasonable condition and suitable for use with your appliance.
- We check your carbon monoxide detector to make sure it is functioning and positioned correctly.
- We check that the fireplace installation complies with building regulations.
