Before you use your wood burning or gas fireplace, it is critical that you have a fireplace and chimney inspection to ensure that it is operating safely and efficiently and is not a fire hazard. We will examine the chimney to make sure that the basic structure is intact and there are no visible signs of damage. We also verify that there are no obstructions or combustible materials in your chimney.
We service all types of chimneys. Our chimney and fireplace cleanings are done utilizing advanced sweeping equipment. While we clean, we will inspect and ensure your chimney and fireplace are functioning properly and are safe to utilize.We recommend cleaning your chimney yearly, if you use your fireplace often.
Gas logs can be a great option for those looking to add warmth and beautiful ambiance to their house. Gas log can be installed in an existing wood-burning fireplace, and are just as efficient. The fireplace must be able to vent properly. We install both vent-less and vented gas logs with an option of remote control starters. Logs should always be professionally installed to ensure proper venting.
The chimney crown is a large slab that covers the top opening of the chimney. Unlike a chimney cap, which is typically made of metal and covers the opening to the flue, the chimney crown covers the entire top of the chimney. The main and most important purpose of a chimney crown is to protect the chimney structure from deterioration due to weather exposure. Properly installed chimney crowns are able to achieve this by extending over the walls of the chimney structure. Our crowns are custom built and specifically fitted for each individual chimney.
While all masonry work will need repointing at some point, chimneys are particularly susceptible to water damage. Their location subjects them to constant temperature changes while making them difficult to monitor for signs of damage. Repointing a masonry chimney requires a skilled professional. Repointing is far more than just slapping some mortar into cracks. This process requires different skills than traditional masonry, and even masons with years of experience might not have significant
knowledge on repointing chimney brick. We provide highly skilled masonry needs for all types of chimneys.
An incorrectly sized chimney liner can lead to excessive creosote buildup in wood-burning stoves which can lead to a chimney fire, and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels. We install stainless steel chimney liners, which provide a lifetime warranty.
Chimney Dampers are used to seal your chimney flue from the outside. Often, traditional brick wood burning fireplaces allow down drafts of air into the home and the air inside your home to escape. Dampers prevent heated air loss through the chimney or down drafts when the chimney is not in use. Chimney top dampers are installed at the top of the chimney, allowing it to close and seal properly. We install high-quality, stainless steel chimney caps and dampers which include a lifetime warranty.
