A fireplace can add beauty and warmth to your home, but it requires regular maintenance to prevent dangerous fire hazards. It is recommended that you have your chimney swept and inspected once a year before the heating season to prevent smoke from reentering your home, a build-up of dangerous carbon monoxide, or a chimney fire that can result from creosote build-up igniting.
Our chimney and dryer vent cleaning services will perform a thorough chimney cleaning of your chimney or dryer vent that will leave your home as clean as when we arrived. We use drop cloths to protect your home during the cleaning process and our skilled chimney technicians will clean the chimney from the inside of your home to control airborne dust and debris.

Leaks around the chimney are not always evident right away but they can cause serious structural damage. Moisture enters the roofing, the attic, and possibly the ceiling areas causing wood rot, roof damage, attic damage, and drywall damage in the ceilings. It’s a good idea to inspect the chimney area in the attic every six months to a year, to be sure that there are no signs of leakage.
The chimney crown is typically constructed from a mortar mix and is located at the top of a masonry chimney. It seals the top of the chimney from the edge to the flue liner. A chimney crown helps prevent erosion by directing water run-off away from the chimney.
Unfortunately, weather exposure can cause small cracks or chips in the crown. Luckily, we can reseal or replace the crown, ensuring it’s formed with a cement mixture that can withstand the elements.
Chimney caps are arguably the most important protective products out there, and we’re proud to install the very best.
But what exactly is a chimney cap?
A chimney cap is simply a metal covering that’s fitted to the top of the chimney to shield the flue against water, weather, downdrafts, and animals. There are single-flue caps and multi-flue caps, so no matter how big or small your chimney or how many flues you have in a single chimney, there’s a cap for the job.
Sometimes, the bricks are “spalling”, meaning that the face of the brick has separated from the brick itself. The mortar may begin to look sandy or start to crack and crumble. Eventually, some of these pieces can fall off of the chimney structure. If neglected, water will infiltrate the structure causing further damage.
Chimney maintenance is really a job for a professional chimney mason. It is wise to have an experienced professional come and inspect your chimney to identify and make necessary repairs before they become complex and expensive.
Your home’s chimney liner is the best defense against a chimney fire that can quickly become a house fire. When the terracotta chimney liner is cracked or the mortar securing pieces together fails, hot gases can seep through the damage and heat wood framing to combustible temperatures.
The repair process includes breaking out the existing clay tile flue, cleaning the interior of the chimney and replacing the flue in sections. Mortar is used to secure the flue sections.
A chimney liner might not seem like an important part of your chimney, but in reality, it’s extremely useful and improves the safety of your fireplace and home.
Chimney liners create a clear and direct path for smoke to exit your home safely and efficiently. Without one, your chimney walls will eventually deteriorate and smoke will be able to seep through any cracks.
When you use your fireplace, carbon monoxide gets released and you want to keep that out of your home at all costs. A properly installed chimney liner that’s in good condition will be able to keep it out.
The damper is a door or window inside your fireplace. When you open the damper to have a fire, the smoke goes through this door and out the chimney and not into your home.
We have been installing top sealing dampers for over five years and have observed an influx of inferior quality products on the market. As Chimney Professionals, we install what we believe to be the best top sealing dampers available.
Have us come out to your home to see if a top sealing damper is right for your fireplace. Remember, replacing a faulty damper is much less expensive than replacing doors and windows – and faster, too!
