 Timely Chimney Inspections Can Save Lives

The National Fire Protection Association standard 211 advises that chimneys, fireplaces, and vents be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.



Carbon monoxide (CO) gas is odorless -- and deadly.


Creosote buildup and other blockages can lead to dangerous CO conditions inside living spaces. Children, seniors and those with respiratory difficulties may be especially vulnerable. But no one is immune.


Wood-burning fireplaces are especially prone to buildiup. But even chimneys from oil and natural gas-fired furnaces develop creosote. And there are many other common hazards beyond creosote buildup. Squirrels, birds, spiders and other pests can find their way into chimneys -- and create a dangerous blockage.


We inspect for :



Annual inspections are required by law for NJ condo owners.

Tips for Keeping
Your Chimney Safe..!
  • Be sure to install a carbon monoxide (CO) detector near your furnace, and test regularly.
    Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas that can kill without warning. The gas may accumulate inside if flue or chimney is blocked.
  • Use binoculars to do a quick check of your chimney from the ground outside.
    If you see cracks or spaces in the bricks or mortar, call Armor Construction for a closer look.
  • If you see water dripping from a ceiling or around a skylight, don't panic.
    It does not necessarily mean that you need a new roof. Call Armor Construction to identify the source, and repair it without delay to prevent further damage.
  • Choose asphalt shingles of a lighter color when selecting a new roof because they reflect more sunlight.
    The darker shingles will absorb more infrared rays, contributing to wider temperature swings which can more rapidly degrade the asphalt.
