The best fireplace is a fireplace that operates efficiently and safely. With regular service and necessary maintenance, you can enjoy your fireplace without having to worry if it’s unsafe or costing you a lot of extra money. The same goes with stoves and fireplace inserts. Here’s how we can help you.
- Especially for wood-burning fireplaces, chimney sweep services are critical for keeping your flue clean and safe. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps have two primary jobs:
- Remove creosote from the interior walls of your chimney or its liner
- Remove obstructions that can cause drafting problems
Creosote is a highly flammable byproduct of burning logs. This substance clings to the inside of your chimney and can easily ignite and start a chimney fire.
Is your flue blocked? Various things can cause this including animal nests, leaves, twigs and other debris. Cleaning all this out keeps smoke and carbon monoxide from backing up into the home.
Fluesbrothers is a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, and our techs are certified by the National Fireplace Institute. When we perform chimney inspections and recommend masonry repairs, tuckpointing, leaky chimney repair and other tasks, you can be assured these tasks are necessary and will improve the function of your fireplace and chimney while saving you money on larger repairs down the road.
Professional inspections include close assessment of the fireplace damper, the flue liner, the chimney’s interior and exterior bricks and mortar, the chimney crown, the chimney flashing, the chimney cap and all other components. A thorough inspection allows you to catch trouble and get it fixed before more serious damage occurs.
Several possible reasons exist for a leaky chimney. Water can come in under the flashing; a damaged or missing chimney cap can let water penetrate the system; cracks and compromises in the masonry can give water a clear path to cause damage.
Over the years, a variety of things can go wrong with a chimney, and we’ve seen all of them. Our chimney repair service includes:
- Chimney liner repair and installation
- Flashing repair and installation
- Mortar and brick replacement
- Firebox rebuild
- Waterproofing and sealing masonry leaks
- Rebuilding of cement chimney crowns
- And all other repairs needed to keep your fireplace and chimney in top shape.

Brick spalling, small and large cracks, breaks in mortar joints and missing sections of mortar are common with older chimneys. Serious decomposition of a chimney can bring about a safety risk for anyone in its vicinity – a chimney that’s damaged badly enough can literally fall apart. Water is another concern when doing chimney masonry work. When water from rain or snow gets into the bricks or cracks in the mortar, it freezes and expands, causing more damage. We’ll help you keep your chimney safe from extensive water damage.
There may come a time when your chimney needs serious work. Chimney rebuilding is necessary when the damage to it is causing it to be unsafe to operate. A thorough inspection by our certified technicians will determine exactly where the problem lies and tell us what we need to know in order to perform the exact rebuilding work required. We do partial and complete chimney rebuilding to keep your system safe and efficient.
