Chimney and Masonry offers a full portfolio of chimney and venting system services. Whether it’s woodstoves, fireplaces,
chimneys, or dryer vents, we understand the intricacies of the venting systems in your home. And we’re equipped to address
all of your maintenance and safety needs. Our services include:
The National Fire Protection
Association recommends that homeowners have their chimney inspected
at least once a year.
Our CSIA Certified Chimney Sweeps use state-of-the-art equipment to inspect and sweep 1st- and
2nd-story chimneys of all kinds, including oil-, wood-, and gas-burning chimneys. While sweeping your system, we ensure that
it’s in working order. We look for any problems that could prevent peak performance and recommend what is needed for
your system to burn cleanly and safely.
We use video inspection camera equipment to examine hidden parts
of the flue. In the past, such examination consisted of a flashlight and mirror inspection. Now with video we can
more accurately evaluate the interior of your chimney.
Waterproofing/Repair & Restoration
We offer the full range of repairs to chimney systems, big and small—from repairing leaky flashing to tuckpointing
and masonry repair to relining the flue and chimney rebuilding.
Water damage resulting from a missing chimney cap is all too common. We remedy this situation by reconstructing the
back walls of fireplaces, returning them to their original pristine condition.
Improperly built crowns are another common problem. If yours is cracked or poorly constructed—allowing
water penetration or posing a fire hazard—we’ll build a proper concrete one that’s guaranteed not to crack.
Install Chimney Caps
The best way to prevent moisture from rain and
snow, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap. Our high-quality stainless
steel caps carry a lifetime warranty.
Replace Chase Tops
damaged chase tops, and those made of masonry, are potential hazards on prefabricated metal fireplaces. We help eliminate
problems before they start by replacing masonry and rusty metal chase tops.
Leak & Condensation Resolution & Repair
If water is damaging your fireplace inside or out, we’ll
find and fix it—no matter the source.
Air Vent Problem Resolution
The quality of the air you breathe in your home is important, and we take it seriously. Our technicians have extensive knowledge
about the entire venting system in your house, and we have the expertise to detect and resolve the full range of air vent
Reasons For Inspecting Your Air Vents:
- Reduces the chances for fire. When the vent is blocked the dryer heats up and the chance
for fire is increased. The buildup on the inner wall of the vent tube becomes farmable and the risk of fire increases.
- Reduces energy consumption. When there is
no blockage, less stress is put on the appliance.
- Better Operation. All connections from the dryer to the exterior should be inspected to ensure they’re
working properly. After removing the dryer vent from the wall, we use our professional Dryer Cleaning tool with a rotating
brush to clear the inside of the tube of all debris. As we do this, we vacuum and blow the lint from the tube, restoring the
flow of air through the system. Your dryer will work like it's brand new.
If squirrels, raccoons, birds, or other pests have made
a home in your chimney or duct, we’ll eliminate the problem, removing the animals and their nesting materials, and preventing
