Chimney repointing is a process of replacing cracked and missing mortar. This can add years to the life of your chimney by protecting it from further water damage. Repointing is done by grinding out the damaged mortar and replacing it with new mortar mix. Read More
Chimney rebuilding is required when repointing just won’t save the chimney. This occurs when water leaks have resulted in loose bricks and further damage to the structural integrity of the chimney.

Our rebuild will enhance the value of your home and make it safe for your family. Read More
Older brick chimneys often have damaged clay liners or even no liners at all. This creates a serious safety issue when modern appliances like furnaces, water heaters, gas fireplace inserts, and wood stoves are vented through these old chimneys. The continuous operation of these appliances can overload an old chimney so that gases and moisture are not safely vented. Deadly carbon monoxide can easily back up in the old chimney and escape into the home or building. Our expert technicians will install a new U.L. listed stainless steel liner precisely fitted to your chimney transforming it into a modern, safe system for your home. Read More
Chimney caps have three necessary functions: 1) to prevent water and snow from entering the chimney, 2) to keep small animals out and 3) to prevent downdrafts. Without a modern, well-fitted chimney cap you run the risk of water damage, chimney fire, dead animal stench, smoke filling your house, or all of the above. Our technicians can select and install the perfect cap for any single or multiple flue chimney from our large selection of stainless or copper caps. Read More
The chase cover seals the top of your chimney to prevent water, nesting animals and debris from entering and potentially damaging your chimney and home. Without a chase cover, or if your old galvanized chase cover leaks, water can enter the chimney causing structural damage and mold growth within the chimney and interior walls of the house. Our expert chimney technicians can fit your chimney with a stainless steel or copper EverGuard Chase Cover that will protect your chimney for years to come. Read More
The old-fashioned throat dampers found above the firebox in older chimneys are serious energy wasters that allow heat from your home to go right up the chimney. Our chimney professionals can install a new, energy efficient top-sealing damper on your chimney that will greatly reduce heat loss, allow you to regulate the chimney draft, seal the chimney from water entry when it’s not being used, and prevent air conditioning loss in the summer months.
