Need Chimney or Fireplace Repair Services in Ponte Vedra Beach? Call Hudson Chimney

Was your chimney damaged after a recent storm and you now need chimney repair services? Get in touch with Hudson Chimney! Homeowners in Ponte Vedra Beach, St. Augustine, Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach, St. Johns, Palm Coast, Crescent City, Green Cove Springs, and neighboring communities can trust our four decades of experience for all of their chimney needs.

Ponte Vedra Beach is a snapshot of paradise. Nestled against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, this coastal gem is full of history and culture. When the weather is nice, locals can relax on a white sand beach after getting in a round of golf at the TPC Sawgrass.

The indoor activities are just as rich and fulfilling. Residents can check out the latest exhibit at the First Coast Cultural Center (formerly the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach), or visit the aquariums and go kayaking at the GTM Research Reserve.

With such beautiful surroundings, it’s easy to forget that life on the beach can have drawbacks. Hurricane season can bring torrential rain and intense winds that can destroy property – no matter how much you prepare. Your chimney is especially vulnerable in these situations because of how exposed it is.

If your chimney sustains damage during a severe storm or hurricane, call Hudson Chimney at 904-842-3762 or reach out to us online. We’ll dispatch a chimney technician to inspect your chimney and make repairs, if necessary.

What Chimney Repair Services Does Hudson Chimney Offer?

Post-storm recovery is a stressful time for homeowners. Between living with property damage and navigating insurance paperwork, it can be a very overwhelming process. Hudson Chimney is here to help. We’re committed to providing a seamless and stress-free experience to our neighbors in Ponte Vedra Beach and nearby towns.

How Do I Know When My Chimney Needs To Be Repaired?

The easiest way to tell that your chimney is in disrepair is to have a chimney inspection completed by a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified technician. Ideally, you’d have an inspection done at least once a year.

Of course, an annual inspection can’t predict future damage following a hurricane. These are some signs to keep an eye out for after a storm:

  • A leaning or tilting chimney
  • Blockages such as twigs or leaves
  • Musty odors that could point to water damage
  • Mold or mildew growth
  • Difficulty starting or maintaining a fire
  • Powdery, white deposits called efflorescence
  • Loose bricks

Keep in mind that not all chimney damage is readily visible. High winds can knock off the chimney cap or tear up the flashing, and you may not know it until you start to see signs of water damage in your home. If you suspect chimney or fireplace damage or you simply want peace of mind, call Hudson Chimney for an inspection. You can also book with us online.

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Chimney Repairs?

Homeowners insurance can be tricky. Most policies only pay on claims for chimney damage under specific conditions. If you have a “sudden occurrence” like a lightning strike, tornado, vehicle collision, and yes – a hurricane – that leaves your chimney compromised, your homeowner’s insurance will likely cover the expenses.

The key to filing a claim with your insurance company is the ability to prove that the damage can’t be attributed to negligence.

In other words, be sure to keep up with your yearly chimney inspections and cleanings because you will be asked to disclose that information.

If you need copies of your inspection report, we’ll be happy to provide them to you.
