Chimney Cleaning

The Chimney Safety Institued of America (CSIA) recommends that chimneys be inspected and, if necessary, cleaned at least once a year. Give us a call for all of your chimney maintenance needs

Chimney cleaning is needed to remove creosote deposits and other debris from chimneys and vents. Creosote buildup in chimneys can lead to chimney fires or flue blockages. During a chimney fire temperatures inside the chimney often exceed 2000 degrees and this can destroy your chimney and may set the house on fire. In the event of a flue blockage, which may be caused by creosote or other debris such as animal nesting, dangerous fumes can be forced into your home. Chimney cleaning is a vital service to protect the health and safety of your family and home. All chimneys, including the chimney for your furnace, should be inspected annually with cleaning performed as needed.

Chimney Caps

Imagine how much water would come into your home during a rainstorm if you had a hole in your roof twelve inches square. Chimney flues may be even larger than that, so where does all that water go? It runs down the chimney and seeps into the bricks and mortar, settling behind the firebricks. There is little air circulation in the chimney (unless you’re using it) and no sunlight, so the inside of the chimney stays wet long after the rain stops. This moisture erodes the mortar joints and weakens the brick. Add to this a freeze/thaw cycle during the cold months, and you have all the needed ingredients for a deteriorating chimney.

Listed below are several good reasons to have a chimney cap:

Take our word for it: even though you can’t see the damage happening, it’s there, slowly deteriorating your beautiful fireplace and chimney. This is a particularly important consideration if you have a metal firebox incorporating a metal damper and smoke shelf. All fireplace dampers made
of metal are subject to this deterioration as the water mixes with creosote and mild acids are formed. Even chimneys
serving woodstoves are in need of a cover.

Chimney Rebuilding, Reflashing & Removal

The way your chimney and roof are connected (the roof flashing) needs to create a waterproof barrier. We can make sure this transition between your chimney and roof doesn’t leak – and if necessary install new flashing or repair your old flashing.
