Complete Chimneys is a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, so we take great care when cleaning your chimney of built-up creosote, a flammable byproduct of smoke condensation inside the chimney. Every fire safety organization in America recommends that homeowners have a thorough chimney cleaning once a year.
Our chimney services also include the removal of various debris such as animal nests, twigs and leaves that might be obstructing the flow of smoke and toxins out of your chimney.
Our service personnel are designated National Fireplace Institute certified technicians and perform a full range of important chimney repairs on all system components:
- Chimney liners
- Chimney chase tops
- Chimney caps
- Chimney flashing
- Fireplace dampers
- All areas of chimney and fireplace masonry
Over time, parts of a fireplace system will begin showing signs of wear. It might be a rusted damper, warped flashing, a compromised chimney cap or damages to the building materials of the chimney itself. As a professional chimney service company serving the entire Severn, MD, area, we can quickly determine where the problem is, the extent of it and what will be required to get it back to full working order.
A leaky chimney is no laughing matter. What begins as small leaks eventually grow to allow a lot of water to infiltrate the chimney system. When this happens, bricks and mortar, the chimney liner and the fireplace damper all can be negatively affected.
Clues that your chimney is leaking include discoloration on the bricks and adjacent walls, water in the firebox and an unpleasant odor coming from the fireplace. Don’t put off having chimney leaks repaired in a timely manner.
Chimneys usually don’t fall apart all at once, rather over time they gradually sustain more and more damage from extreme weather, house-settling or simple old age. If your chimney is seriously compromised, we can perform complete or partial chimney rebuilding to restore it to its original, safe operating condition.
Small cracks in the masonry of a chimney often are the first signs of greater damage to come. Crumbling of the bricks also is an early signal that chimney masonry work is needed. Our chimney service professionals can perform tuckpointing on your Severn, MD, chimney, which involves replacing damaged areas with new, strong material. For smaller cracks, a waterproofing seal coating might be appropriate.
