The best way to keep your chimney and fireplace in peak condition is through regular chimney inspections, chimney sweep services and timely masonry and repair work. Here’s how Fluesbrothers can help.
Having your chimney cleaned once a year is a smart move, especially if you operate a wood-burning fireplace. When logs burn, creosote and soot begin to build up in the flue. Creosote exists in several forms, all of them flammable. With annual chimney cleaning, you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ve significantly decreased the chances of a flue fire.
Another important reason for chimney sweep services is to remove any obstructions that might exist within the flue. If your chimney doesn’t have a sturdy chimney cap, the flue is susceptible to debris such as falling leaves and twigs along with small-animal nests and the small animals themselves when they die in there. We perform animal removal and thorough cleaning of all obstructions that could hamper the drafting of smoke and carbon monoxide.
Many things can happen to a chimney that the average homeowner won’t know about, but which could lead to expensive repairs down the line. Fluesbrothers certified chimney inspectors will examine every inch of your chimney and all its components and then recommend needed repairs.
Standard chimney inspections and chimney fire inspections not only will save you money on repair and rebuilding work, they also will keep you safe. Chimneys and fireplaces that don’t operate as they should due to damaged components, air-flow obstructions, water damage or structural issues are dangerous to live around. Our professional chimney technicians are here to keep you safe and save you money.

Chimneys are built to last a long time, but age will finally catch up to them. When the masonry of your chimney is compromised, it presents an unsafe situation for you and your family. Our expert masons can perform any needed chimney masonry work including tuckpointing (replacing missing sections of brick and mortar), waterproofing, repair of mortar joint cracks and more. Count on our experience to keep your chimney safe.
In cases where a chimney has deteriorated beyond the point where simple repairs will solve the problem, we perform complete or partial chimney rebuilding. This work is often needed in severe cases of brick spalling in which moisture has caused the bricks to degenerate and break apart. You should never delay in seeking professional help with a badly compromised chimney.
