The best and safest chimneys are those that are in good repair and function at peak efficiency.

Complete Chimneys serves Annapolis, MD, and surrounding areas with top-level chimney repair and rebuilding services.
If the bricks and mortar of your chimney are showing signs of age, our NFI- and CSIA-certified chimney repair technicians are here to help. Masonry work often is needed after years of intense heat and cold or weather events such as lightning strikes and violent hail storms. Compromised masonry should never be neglected.
Cracks in mortar joints, loose bricks and other masonry problems can allow water to infiltrate and do serious damage. Even the smallest gaps can let in enough water to freeze and expand, leading to worsening deterioration. If only minor cracking is present, a waterproof sealant often is a good solution to prevent further damage. A process called tuckpointing can be used to re-fill areas where bricks and mortar are completely missing.
Chimney Rebuilding In Annapolis MD
When damage is severe, professional chimney rebuilding can restore your chimney and prevent a serious health and safety risk. Over time, some chimneys deteriorate to such an extent that they begin to lean to one side. Others have so many cracks and gaps in the masonry that the chimney structure itself may actually collapse.
An inspection of your chimney will tell us its exact state of disrepair and what will be required to partially or completely rebuild the structure to leave you with a chimney that’s sturdy and safe to use for many years to come.
Chimney Crown Rebuild/Repair
The chimney crown is a section of cement at the top opening of the chimney that protects the bricks beneath it from rainwater and keeps water from running down into the flue. Crowns are sloped to give water an easy run-off. When a chimney crown is cracked – just like with the chimney’s masonry – water will seep into those cracks and cause predictable damage.
Our certified chimney service technicians can assess the condition of your chimney crown and initiate needed repairs or complete chimney crown rebuilding. We bring 30 years of hands-on experience to every job and guarantee an excellent finished product.
Chimney Liner Repair/Installation
A quality chimney liner is the primary means of defense against intense heat from fires damaging your chimney’s masonry. Liners also provide a smooth path for smoke and toxins to draft from the firebox to the outside. Because you can’t easily access all areas of your chimney liner, we recommend annual inspections to spot problems before they become serious.
Chimney liners usually are made of steel, tile or a poured-in-place compound. Each type of liner is prone to wear and tear after years of use. Rough sections of damaged liners can collect excess creosote. Damaged areas that are open can put chimney bricks and house building materials behind them in touch with enough heat to start a fire. Whether your liner needs basic repairs, or you need a brand new liner, Complete Chimneys is ready to go to work all year long.
