Our customers in Glen Burnie, MD, often need some manner of chimney repair. Complete Chimneys is a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild and employs technicians who are skilled in repairing any damaged component including:
- Chimney liners
- Chimney chase tops
- Chimney caps
- Chimney flashing
- Fireplace dampers
- All areas of masonry
Chimney caps, flashing and chase tops serve to keep water out of the chimney system. When these components are compromised, water can get in and cause significant damage.
Fireplace dampers create a solid seal between the world outside and the inside of your home. Chimney liners protect the building
materials of the chimney and adjacent sections of your home. For all these components to function properly, regular inspections
and professional repairs are needed.
If there are unpleasant odors coming from your fireplace, if the chimney bricks and walls of your house are stained or if there’s water in your firebox, it’s likely you have a leaky chimney. Chimneys and water do not mix. Once water has infiltrated the system, severe damage is almost certain to occur. Complete Chimneys performs top-to-bottom inspections to find the source of the leak so
it can be repaired right away.
Older chimneys and chimneys that have begun to fall apart due to house-settling or extreme weather may need to be rebuilt. Our service personnel are highly trained in all levels of chimney rebuilding from minor to comprehensive. A chimney that has severe damage is not safe to use or to be around.
When we perform chimney inspections for our Glen Burnie customers, we often find early, minor damage. In these cases, we may do some tuckpointing to replace deteriorated sections of brick and mortar. If small cracks are beginning, in many cases we can apply a spray-on sealant. Most chimneys eventually need masonry work to restore their stability and safety.
