Most every fire-safety agency recommends annual chimney cleaning to remove flammable creosote and other obstructions. This allows your chimney to operate safety and efficiently. Complete Chimneys is a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, and our certified techs know exactly how to clean and inspect every type of chimney.
Chimneys have many components that eventually can fall into disrepair. The solution is professional chimney repair services. We regularly repair or replace critical components such as:
• Chimney liners
• Chimney chase tops
• Chimney caps
• Chimney flashing
• Fireplace dampers
• All masonry
Some of these components serve to keep water out of the chimney system. Others prevent obstructions such as leaves, twigs, small-animal nests and the like from blocking air flow within the flue. Chimney liners protect the interior of the chimney masonry and the home’s building materials from intense heat. Masonry must always be in good shape to prevent a serious safety risk.
A leaky chimney can be caused by many things, but whatever the cause, water inside a chimney is not a good sign. Over time, small leaks can become big leaks and lead to significant damage to the chimney or parts of the home adjacent to it. If you notice any of these signs of a chimney leak, call us right away:
• Strong odors coming from the fireplace
• Stains on the chimney bricks
• Discoloration of walls close to the fireplace
• Water in the firebox
Our certified technicians perform chimney masonry work in homes throughout Stevensville, MD, and the Baltimore region. Cracks in the bricks and mortar of a chimney can cause expensive damage. Small cracks often can be sealed. Larger areas of damage might need a process called tuckpointing, in which new mortar is added to replace what has been lost through deterioration.
In cases of severe chimney damage, chimney rebuilding may be necessary. A chimney that is leaning to one side or whose bricks are falling away is a dangerous chimney. Never start a fire if your fireplace has this level of damage. We will perform a thorough inspection of your chimney to determine the extent of the damage and how to fix it, whether it be a partial chimney rebuild or the full-scale building of a new chimney.
