Complete Chimneys is a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, and we’re aware that all U.S. agencies involved with fire safety say that homeowners should arrange for professional chimney cleaning on an annual basis.
Our certified chimney sweeps have the tools and training to remove built up flammable creosote to reduce the chances of a chimney fire. We’ll also remove all manner of obstructions your chimney may have, from nests made by small animals to leaves, twigs and other debris.
Our field employees are official National Fireplace Institute certified technicians who can provide a full menu of chimney inspection services and chimney repairs for all the components of your chimney and fireplace:
- Chimney liners
- Chimney chase tops
- Chimney caps
- Chimney flashing
- Fireplace dampers
- All areas of masonry
Chimney repairs and replacement of components should be handled by trained professionals who are familiar with every section within a fireplace and chimney system. In many cases, all that’s needed is basic repair work; other times we’ll recommend replacing damaged components such as flashing or the chimney liner. Remember: the only safe chimney is one where all its components work as they are intended.
Do you suspect you have a chimney leak? Our Millersville customers count on us to find what’s causing a leaky chimney and get it fixed quickly. Water inside a chimney means that serious damage could be on the way. Water gets into the cracked mortar, where it freezes and expands, causing more and bigger cracks. Eventually some or all of the chimney may have to be rebuilt. Don’t wait to schedule chimney repair services if you have a leaky chimney.
When the chimney structure is compromised through old age, the settling of the house or harsh weather, chimney rebuilding may be necessary. Any chimney that’s experiencing significant deterioration of its building materials is unsafe to use and unsafe to be near. The skilled chimney service professionals at Complete Chimneys can rebuild damaged sections of your chimney or initiate a complete rebuild.
When damage to a chimney is relatively minor, tuckpointing may be all that’s necessary to fix it. Tuckpointing involves scraping away crumbling sections of brick and mortar and replacing them with strong new material. If your chimney is beginning to show signs of cracking, a spray-on sealant might be the perfect way to keep water from causing further damage.
