Complete Chimneys is a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, so we’re aware that the only kind of chimney that’s safe and fully functional is a clean chimney. Our certified chimney sweeps know how to safely remove flammable creosote from your chimney to help prevent a chimney fire.
We also remove obstructions like twigs, leaves, debris and small animal nests to ensure that smoke and toxins flow easily to the outdoors. Obstructions in a chimney can cause smoke and carbon monoxide to back up into the house, putting all humans and pets at risk.
Our service personnel are official National Fireplace Institute certified technicians who are able to fix whatever is wrong with your chimney or fireplace:
- Damaged chimney liners
- Damaged chimney chase tops
- Damaged chimney caps
- Warped or rusted chimney flashing
- Rusted or worn out fireplace dampers
- All types of damage to fireplace and chimney masonry
One of the key problems with damage to a chimney or many of its components is that water can enter the system. Water erodes and deteriorates parts of a chimney faster than you might realize.
Over time, small compromises in the bricks and mortar, or in the flashing, chimney cap or other components can become serious and expensive problems. At Complete Chimney, our goal is to spot and fix problems in their early stages, starting with thorough, top-to-bottom inspection.
Have you noticed water in your firebox? How about strong odors coming from your fireplace? Are the chimney and fireplace bricks discolored? All of these point to a leaky chimney.
As we mentioned above, water and chimneys don’t mix. If water gets into cracks in the mortar, it can freeze and expand, causing significant decomposition. Water leaking down the outside of a chimney can seriously damage the building materials of the home. We’re experts at finding where leaks originate and getting them repaired fast.
As years pass, chimneys begin showing the signs of age. If early symptoms aren’t addressed, a chimney can become damaged to the point that some or all of it needs to be rebuilt. This is a job only for professionals, because the safety of your home and family is at stake. Complete Chimneys employs only the best chimney rebuilding professionals who can perform partial rebuilds or complete rebuilds as needed.
If the damage to your Russett, MD, chimney is minor, we can remove crumbling sections of brick and mortar and replace them with new, strong material. This process is called tuckpointing, and it can significantly prolong the life of a chimney. Other chimney masonry work includes spray sealing the exterior of the chimney to keep water from entering small cracks. After a chimney inspection, we can advise you on which process is best.
