Wild Atlantic Way Construction Roofing Specialists offer chimney reconstruction, block or brick chimney repairs, partial chimney rebuilds, roofing repair and chimney rebuilds, and chimney rebuilds. Cracking, water leaking, element exposure, usage, time, and lack of maintenance can render your chimney structurally weakness, resulting in the need for chimney repairs or chimney rebuild.
At Wild Atlantic Way Construction Roofing we specialise in chimney rebuild include set-up scaffolding, tear down and disposal, as well as reconstruction of your existing chimney.
The most common chimney problems are:
Partial chimney rebuilds: A small chimneys no scaffolding required or only the top few courses of a large chimney.
Roof line up chimney rebuilds: Substantial mortar or brick deterioration will have eliminated the possibility of a chimney restoration job. The structure has to torn down to the flashing area at the roof line, and then the chimney rebuild begins.
Chimney rebuilds: The blocks and other materials that make up your home are protected by the roof and eaves system. The chimney is above the roof and is exposed to rain, wind, and frost (general Irish weather). Masonry materials deteriorate very quickly when they absorb moisture and are exposed to the elements, causing undue stress, integrity loss and brittle.
We provide a chimney rebuilds service where the chimney is leaning, has severe mortar deterioration or when severe brick or block spalling has occurred from ground level up. In most cases the fireplate, hearth and smoke chamber do not have to be removed.
A chimney crown is the top element of a chimney rebuild and allows maximum protection for the construction beneath by preventing the need for fireplace chimney repairs and chimney rebuilding. It protects the top of the chimney, and hangs over the chimney’s edge usually about 4inches. The mortar used in most chimney crowns is not designed for years of weather without cracking, chipping or deteriorating. The situations that allow water to penetrate the chimney.
We also offer a chimney painting and valley pointing services in all area’s.

It’s important to determine whether the roof is in need of a quick repair or complete replacement. An entire replacement could take up to a week, although a repair may only take a few hours.
Leaky Roofs symptoms are:
Mould & mildew growing on the walls
Staining of the interior walls
Decay & cracking on both inside and outside walls
Dark areas on the underneath of the roof or celling
And let’s not forget condensation, not every roof suffers from this problem.
Extension Roof Replacement
In this case a complete replacement, a suitable roofing company would need to find out the content of the roof, although most Extensions built between 1960-1990 contained Asbestos, so it’s important to find out either way, because apart the fact that it will help determine which tools used, it will determine the course Health & Safety precautions that will have to be used.
Extension Roof Repair
A roof repair could be carried out, remember a repair is not a permanent, and if it’s a more serious, then it’s worth getting in touch with a Wild Atlantic Way Construction Roofing.

What is SEAI and the Better Energy Home Scheme (Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland)
The Better Energy Home (BEH) scheme provides assistance to homeowners of dwellings built before 2006 who are interested in improving the energy efficiency of their home in order to reduce energy use and costs as well as greenhouse gas emissions.
Conservation can reduce polluting emissions, provide employment, and reduce Ireland’s fuel imports bill. Most of our energy currently comes from oil, coal, natural gas and peat.
These resources are not infinite, and if we continue to use them at current rates, they will run out within a few number of generations. The burning of these fuels releases pollutants into the atmosphere, contributing to smog, acid rain and climate change.
For these reasons the organization SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland) has launched a program called Better Energy Home (BEH) scheme funded by the Irish Government under the National Development Plan 2007-2013 with programmes partly financed by the European Union.
It provides grants to homeowners who are interested in improving the energy efficiency of their home in order to reduce energy use and costs as well as greenhouse gas emissions. The scheme is open to all owners of existing houses built before 2006.
These types of measures currently eligible under this scheme are external and internal wall insulation, ceiling level roof insulation, rafter level roof insulation, high efficiency boilers and heating control upgrades.
8/06/2010 there is a need to do also a compulsory After Upgrade Works Building Energy Rating (BER) Certificate when all works are finished. For this service you can also claim €50 grant.
Grants and how much ?
Grants are fixed for each type of measured. Grant approval must be in place before any purchase of materials or commencement of measures undertaken. Grants are paid after the measures are completed and the contractor has been paid by the homeowner. In some cases where the cost of the work (vat inclusive) is less than the fixed grant amount, the actual cost will be reimbursed.
