Our Annapolis customers rely on our chimney sweeps, who are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America to keep their chimneys, fireplaces and homes safe. You may have seen our services trucks on Rowe Blvd. (Hwy. 70), College Ave. or West St. If so, you know we were heading to another home to meet another customer’s needs.
Complete Chimneys is a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, and we know that a chimney is only safe when it’s clean and in proper working condition. Our chimney sweep professionals perform thorough chimney inspections and chimney cleanings to remove obstructions and built-up creosote.
A sticky and flammable substance, creosote is responsible for most chimney fires in America each year. Obstructions such as leaves, twigs, animal nests and other debris must be removed from chimneys in order for them to vent properly.
Our service personnel are official National Fireplace Institute certified technicians, so if your Annapolis chimney or fireplace has suffered damage or is showing signs of wear, we’re ready to undertake all manner of chimney repairs. Among the components our chimney repair technicians can replace or repair are:
- Chimney liners
- Chimney chase tops
- Chimney caps
- Chimney flashing
- Fireplace dampers
- All masonry areas
The main job of chimney caps, chase tops and flashing is to guard against the infiltration of water. Chimneys can be seriously damaged if water penetrates the system and begins to erode the materials from which they were constructed. Chimney liners are necessary to contain the intense heat moving into the flue. Often we can repair these components. In other cases, we need to replace or rebuild.
Do you suspect that you have a leaky chimney? It’s not an uncommon occurrence, but it’s one that should be fixed right away. Water on the floor of your firebox, staining on adjacent walls or the chimney’s bricks and mortar, and foul odors coming from the fireplace are signs that your chimney may be leaking.
Our certified chimney professionals will perform a thorough inspection to determine the source of the leak, and then get right to work repairing it.
In cases where the bricks and mortar of a chimney are crumbling and falling apart, chimney rebuilding is usually required. Water and age are the two primary reasons for a chimney to begin to deteriorate. If ignored, these chimneys can begin to lean to one side.
When this happens, a very serious catastrophe may occur, because when significantly compromised, the entire chimney can fall, damaging the roof and anything below in the yard. Complete Chimneys can do partial or full chimney rebuilds.
For minor damage to a chimney’s masonry, we normally can solve the problem quickly. For some Annapolis, MD, customers, we use a spray sealant to block water from entering cracks in the bricks and mortar. Another part of our chimney masonry work is tuckpointing, which involves scraping out crumbling mortar and adding strong new mortar.
