Our skilled team works on:
Routine chimney cleaning throughout the wood-burning season will eliminate a potentially dangerous accumulation of soot, ashes, and creosote tar. When you hire us for chimney cleaning, we will inspect the fireplace, box, and damper and seal the front of the fireplace with plastic.
Once we're on the roof, we'll remove the chimney cap to inspect the structure. Then we'll brush the flue and smoke chamber and vacuum out any debris.
Using a wood stove means you need to pay attention to maintenance procedures. It's important to schedule routine cleaning to remove creosote deposits and ash buildup. Since your stove pipe is subjected to high temperatures, it can corrode in time. We'll check it periodically and replace it when it reaches its lifespan.
During your appointment, our team will inspect the appliance, floor pad and stovepipes. We'll also check for signs of physical deterioration.
In order for your insert to be up to code, it has to have an approved stainless-steel liner connected to the insert collar. This allows us to clean the system properly. Our team will fully inspect the system to make sure everything is working as it should.
When you call us for service, we'll cover work area in drop sheets to protect your belongings. You can trust us to take care of your property.
Gas furnaces and hot water tanks that vent through a masonry chimney have to have an approved gas liner, which start at the top of the chimney and feed down the flue to the point where the furnace pipe enters the wall (often in the basement of your home). The liner at the top of the chimney needs to be capped properly, still allowing for expansion and cleaning. You can depend on our team to get the job done right.
The oil liners inside furnace chimneys are made of stainless steel. The liner moves down the flue to the point where the furnace pipes enter the wall. However, there's a removable cap on the top for easy cleaning. If you need assistance, we're here to help.
Most masonry chimneys have clay liners. These liners come in different sizes, often in 2-foot sections. When we install your liners, we'll seal them at each joint throughout the flue using cement with high heat resistance. We'll also make sure they have enough space around them to expand.
If your chimney is straight up with no offsets, we recommend a rigid stainless-steel liner. To install these liners, we will cut an access hole on the exterior brick wall next to the smoke chamber. After a thorough chimney cleaning, we'll coat the smoke chamber with a solution that fills in any gaps. From there, we'll place clay tile on top that allows for heat expansion as well as a storm collar and cap.
If the chimney has offsets, we recommend a flexible stainless-steel liner. We'll connect the new stainless-steel liner using stainless screws or rivets before lowering it down.
