Addressing Various Chimney Problems

Chimneys can experience problems requiring prompt repairs to prevent further damage and potential hazards. Our team is well-equipped to handle the following chimney issues:

Chimney Leaks

Water infiltration through cracks and gaps in your chimney can cause structural damage and lead to mold growth. Our experts can identify the source of leaks and provide efficient repairs to prevent further water damage.

Cracked or Deteriorating Bricks

The mortar between your chimney bricks can deteriorate over time, leading to cracks and gaps. This damage compromises the integrity of your chimney and can result in chimney fires or structural collapse. Our chimney sweeps can repair and replace damaged bricks and mortar to restore the chimney’s strength.

Flue Lining Damage

The flue lining protects your home from the intense heat and toxic gases produced by your fireplace. If the lining is damaged or deteriorates, it can increase the risk of fires and carbon monoxide poisoning. We specialize in flue lining repair and replacement to ensure the safety of your chimney.

Creosote Build-up

Creosote, a highly flammable substance, can accumulate in your chimney over time, increasing the risk of a dangerous chimney fire. Our professional chimney sweeps can thoroughly clean your chimney, removing creosote build-up and reducing the risk of fires.

Animal Nest Removal

Birds, squirrels, and other animals may build nests in your chimney, obstructing airflow and creating fire hazards. We can safely remove these nests and provide preventive solutions to keep animals out of your chimney.
