Our company recommends at the minimum an annual chimney inspection. The inspector checks for many different sorts of damage or hazards in these inspections, from the sooty build-up to ventilation damage. We here at Gulf Coast Chimney Sweep Foley can find an address these issues in your home.

From lightning strikes to hurricanes, mother nature is not kind to chimneys. Around the Gulf Coast, storms are a prevalent issue, and storms love to damage chimneys; said damage effects could range from not letting smoke escape properly, which speeds along with the accumulation of creosote, and risk carbon-dioxide poisoning, to water damage risking the structural integrity of your home. Damages caused by these events are to be spotted and addressed by our workers.

Regular inspections clean up the flammable build-up left inside your chimney after burning plant-based fuel. The flames started within the chimney from this build-up are much hotter than those in the fireplace proper.

This gunk, a combination of tar and soot most often named creosote, can restrict airflow or ignite into a blaze that may spread out to the rest of your home. You can trust our experts to clean these chemicals out and correctly perform a twenty-one-point safety inspection.

Moisture is the worst for your chimney as it can cause several complex issues on its lonesome. Chimney masonry is susceptible to water’s freeze and thawing, which cause the bricks and stones that make up the body to warp, expand, contract, and eventually crack till they break away.

This is dangerous as, ultimately, the chimney is liable to collapse into the house, possibly endangering those within and causing expensive home damage.

The water absorbed into the masonry can also cause draft issues, as the bricks cool the hot air and let it sink back into the home, risking carbon dioxide poisoning once more.

Our water damage repair experts will ensure you don’t have to worry too much about these issues, waterproofing your chimney and ensuring any prior damage is fixed.

Foley Alabama History

Foley is named for J.B. Foley of Chicago who bought land in the area in 1901 planning to sell it through the newly formed  Magnolia Springs Land Company. He persuaded the Louisville and Nashville Railroad to run a spur to the area by promising to pay for the crossties needed for the line. By 1905, the town was large enough to warrant a post office, and it incorporated in 1915. Foley was primarily a farming community, served by the L&N Railroad via a depot and warehouse for farm products, notably potatoes. Early businesses included a bottling company that produced a soft-drink called “Ski-Hi.” The first newspaper, a weekly called The Onlooker, began publication in 1907.
