Furnace & Hot water tank flues cleaned & inspected

Carbon Monoxide
The Silent Killer

Leaves, bird nests or debris can block your furnace/hot water tank flue and prevent it from venting properly.

If your chimney is blocked, Carbon Monoxide may seep into your home unnoticed. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to those of the flu: headaches, fatigue and nausea. If undetected, this odorless, colorless gas can be fatal.

Without being protected all new and existing masonry chimneys are susceptible to water damage, even if repaired. Because chimneys project above the roof line, they are vulnerable to the elements. Water damage can be prevented.

Repair & Restoration

We offer the full range of repairs to chimney systems, big and small,from repairing dampers to chimney/firebox pointing and masonry repair.

Rebuild Crowns

Improperly built crowns are another common problem, usually cracked or poorly constructed—allowing water penetration and creating more damage on your chimney..

Chimney Caps

The best way to prevent moisture from rain and snow, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap. Our high-quality stainless steel caps carry a lifetime warranty.

Chimney Dampers

We offer repair and replacement on dampers, both at the bottom of the chimney as well as top sealing dampers.

Water Leak & Condensation Resolution & Repair

If water is damaging your fireplace inside or out, we’ll find and fix it—no matter the source.

Smoking & Draft Problems

We offer effective solutions for fireplaces an woodstoves that cause smoke problems inside your home.

Animal Removal

Squirrels are great climbers and they need a safe and dry place for building a nest. No cap means an open invitation to build a nest inside your chimney.  We offer removal of squirrels, birds, raccoons, and other animals from your chimney.

Masonry Repairs (Repointing and Rebuilding)

Masonry repairs are necessary if you notice some loose bricks in your chimney. Repointing and rebuilding is not only done for aesthetic purposes, but also to make your chimney safer and stronger.

Chimney Relining

Inside your chimney is a passage for flue gases, created by combustion, to exit your home. This passage is called a liner. However, some chimneys do not have a liner and flue gasses travel inside the bricks that make up the chimney.

If there is no liner in your chimney or if any of the flue tiles become cracked or broken, we recommend installing a stainless steel chimney liner. Our liners are appropriate for furnace flues, fireplace flues, and have a lifetime warranty.
