Keeping your chimney in top shape and getting years of enjoyment from it requires periodic services such as cleaning, inspection and repair. When we work on your chimney and fireplace, you’re assured of top performance from your appliance.
A clean chimney is a safe chimney. Annual chimney cleaning is recommended by every fire-safety agency in America, because chimneys with obstructions and buildups of creosote can cause dangerous and very expensive problems.
Creosote is highly flammable and contributes to most of the chimney fires in the U.S. each year. Cleaning this substance out of your chimney requires special tools and training and should never be performed by a novice.
When a chimney contains large amounts of debris such as leaves, twigs and small-animal nests, the drafting of smoke will be impeded. The greater the obstruction, the more chance that smoke and carbon monoxide will back up into the house and put everyone who lives there at risk. Our certified chimney sweeps can keep all these problems from happening.
Fluesbrothers is certified by the National Fireplace Institute and is designated a CSIA Master Chimney Sweep. We know your Lees Summit chimney inside and out and have the tools and training to perform top-to-bottom safety and structural inspections.
During a chimney inspection, we’ll look at all the components such as the chimney cap, chimney flashing, fireplace damper and chimney liner. We’ll also closely inspect the chimney crown and the bricks and mortar of the chimney itself to spot early signs of structural damage. We want you to enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your fireplace and chimney are in top shape.
Is your chimney leaking? If it is, we can determine the reason for the leak and fix it quickly. Water that gets into the system through a damaged chimney cap, eroded flashing or cracks in the mortar joints will lead to big problems down the line. Water is the enemy of chimneys and over time can eat away at the structure and make the chimney unsafe.
Fluesbrothers offers a full menu of chimney repairs including:
- CrownSeal crown repair

A variety of events can create the need for professional chimney masonry work. High winds, the settling of the house, violent hail storms, intense heat and cold year after year and the normal aging process can negatively affect the masonry of your chimney. Our certified technicians perform tuckpointing to replace missing sections of brick and mortar, repair of small cracks, waterproofing and other jobs to ensure a structurally sound chimney.
When significant damage is present, chimney rebuilding might be required. Chimneys that lean to one side or have large sections of missing bricks need to be rebuilt in a way that restores operational integrity. A chimney fire, depending on its severity and duration, may cause a need for the chimney to be partially or completely rebuilt. Whatever the case, our experts will get the job done right.
Have you been thinking of adding a beautiful new fireplace, stove or fireplace insert to your home? We’ll help you find the ideal model that will meet your heating needs and aesthetic tastes. Then we’ll install your new appliance and make sure it runs safely and with the greatest efficiency.
As with your chimney, clothes dryer vents must be clean for the appliances connected with them to operate as intended. We perform complete dryer vent cleaning that will help your machine dry clothes faster and cost less to operate.
