We’re members of the National Chimney Sweep Guild and know that the cleanliness of your chimney will determine how well it functions and how safe it is. When our chimney sweeps clean a chimney, we use specialized tools and video equipment to do a thorough inspection of the entire structure.
Excess creosote is a particular problem we encounter with chimneys that vent wood-burning fireplaces. Creosote is highly flammable and can easily start a chimney fire. Our chimney sweeps also clean out any obstructions such as bird nests, leaves, twigs and other debris.
A fireplace and chimney have many components, all of which can suffer wear and become damaged over time. Complete Chimneys employs highly trained personnel who are National Fireplace Institute certified technicians to handle any fireplace or chimney repair need you may have. We repair:
- Chimney liners
- Chimney chase tops
- Chimney caps
- Chimney flashing
- Fireplace dampers
- All masonry areas
A faulty damper will let warm air out of the house in the winter and let cool air escape in hotter times of the year. Damaged chimney liners can allow moisture and excess heat to start deteriorating the chimney’s inner masonry. Flashing around the base of the outside of the chimney may be damaged or warped, which will let water run down into the home. Compromised chimney caps let water get into the chimney. We can repair or replace all chimney and fireplace components as necessary.
A leaky chimney is a dangerous chimney. Have you noticed an odd odor coming from your fireplace? Is there discoloration of the chimney bricks or adjacent walls? Is water dripping into your firebox? All of these signs point to a chimney leak. Our chimney technicians will perform a detailed inspection to determine the source of the leak, and then fix it quickly.
Sometimes our Arnold, MD, customers need chimney rebuilding services. Over time, chimneys can begin to lean either from age, decomposition or damage because of house-settling.
In any of these circumstances, it’s not safe to neglect rebuilding work. Another reason a chimney may need to be rebuilt is because of a chimney fire. Our experienced team members are ready to undertake any scope of rebuilding work necessary for your chimney.
Small cracks in a chimney’s bricks and mortar will begin to let rain in. That moisture will freeze and expand, causing further damage. We can use a spray sealant on a chimney with minor cracks. For more extensive damage, we can perform tuckpointing to clean out damaged sections of mortar and replace them with new filler.
