Most chimney issues are caused by moisture and weatherization. When a chimney or crown becomes water logged, freezing temperatures expand the water and cause freeze-thaw, which damages the mortar and concrete.
Preventative maintenance is the key here. Fixing existing damage and water sealing the chimney with a quality product will ensure water doesn’t penetrate the exterior and gives your chimney years of life.
All parts of your chimney get worn over time so replacement is common in both masonry and factory-built fireplaces. We offer a wide variety of quality chimney products installed by experienced technicians so you can safely enjoy your fireplace again.
All services have a 1-year workmanship guarantee. Plus, our stainless steel caps carry a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty and any chimney weatherized with ChimneySaver comes a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Chimney (flue) liners are typically clay, metal or stainless steel liners installed to protect from heat and corrosion while sending combustible particles to the outside. New liners are needed if your chimney is unlined or existing liner is cracked or damaged.
Chimney caps are important as they protect from outside elements such as rain, snow, animals or downdraft issues. Without this protection, an open chimney allows water and/or critters to invade, which invites big problems.
A chase cover fits over the top outside edge of your chase or brick chimney (somewhat like a shoe box top) and keeps out rain, snow, critters and everything else.
Refractory panels direct a fire’s heat towards the fireplace’s mouth to keep the firebox temperature at a safe level. Over time, the constantly changing temperature compromises the integrity of the panel causing cracks and when that happens, it needs replacing.
Your top-mount damper helps to regulate the flow of air inside your chimney system. If your damper is not opening or closing properly, you may be experiencing major drafting issues.
