We Specialize In Chimney & Fireplace Repairs Of All Kinds
Sometimes it’s quite evident that there’s a problem with the chimney system. Smoke may start pouring back into your home, water damage may be visible, proper draft may be hard to achieve, or brick may be spalling and flaking down into your firebox. But other times, damage may be harder to detect. That’s why annual inspections are so vital to proper chimney maintenance. Whether your home is old or new, an annual inspection can reveal hidden issues and help you protect your investment.
Annual inspections allow us to look over all the easily accessible areas of your chimney and fireplace so that any damage or deterioration can be identified and addressed. Although a lot of damage can be avoided through proper maintenance and care, general wear and tear that happens with use can lead to the need for repairs as well. Whatever the cause of your damage, be it neglect, creosote buildup, a missing cap, a damaged crown, strong storms, chimney leaks, animal tampering or nesting, strong winds, a lightning strike, or something else, we can help. Our chimney repairs extend to cover all your needs:
- Chimney Masonry – The heat of the fire, creosote buildup, chimney leaks, and just general wear and tear can cause your chimney and fireplace masonry to deteriorate, flake, and crack. Unfortunately, this doesn’t just detract from the appearance of your chimney and fireplace – it can also reduce its efficiency and safety. But we can help. Whether you need the joints of your firebox repointed, your chimney crown rebuilt, your chimney or fireplace rebuilt, a brick replaced here and there, your chimney extended, or another type of masonry repair, we’ll take care of it quickly and affordably.

- Chimney Relining – Whether you have an older chimney that was built without a liner, a crack in one of your terra cotta tiles, holes or cracks in the joints between your tiles, an incorrectly-sized flue, or some other issue that requires a relining or flue liner repair, we can help. We install durable stainless steel liners and use the industry’s best restoration product, HeatShield®, to repair cracks and seal holes and gaps. Find out more about our relining services and why chimney liners are so important here.
- Chimney Leaks – A leaky chimney can make your fireplace unusable and cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your chimney, fireplace, and the surrounding walls and ceilings. That’s why it’s crucial that chimney leaks be pinpointed and stopped early in their development. If you think you may have a chimney leak or you’d like to have an inspection performed to evaluate where water could potentially get into your chimney, give us a call. We’ll work hard to keep your chimney water-free, year after year. Learn more about chimney leaks and our related repairs here.
