It begins with an annual chimney sweep and cleaning
Each year, we recommend that all of our customers schedule an annual chimney sweep and cleaning. Often, it’s best to schedule these after you’ve finished using your fireplace for the season, usually in the late spring and early summer.
The purpose of this annual cleaning is to eliminate dangerous creosote from your chimney. Creosote is a natural by-product that most fireplace homeowners will need to deal with at some point. How much creosote they have is dependent on the type of wood they burned during the previous season.
Unseasoned wood produces more creosote than seasoned wood. In this case, your home may be at a greater risk for a fire due to creosote buildup. In addition, this substance can be toxic, which means it's best to remove it each year.
Then, it continues with our various levels of chimney inspections
While at your home, we can also perform a chimney inspection. There are two primary types of inspections that we offer defined by their “levels.” Those are:
• Level 1 Chimney Inspections. These are a visual review of your system. Here, our team members will look over all aspects of your chimney, both inside and out. They’ll identify any problems that need to be addressed soon and make recommendations for repair.
• Level 2 Chimney Inspections. These also are known as real estate inspections and are more involved, using camera equipment, and a required part of the home buying and selling process. Legally, all homes sold in Pennsylvania that have an active fireplace must also have a Level 2 Chimney Inspection before changing owners.

In addition, we can handle many types of chimney masonry repair
Those are basic chimney repairs. More involved are chimney masonry repair projects. One of the more common is tuckpointing. This repairs damaged mortar joints. We also offer crown repair. This, too, is a porous material. Over time, it can weather, crack, erode, and break away. As your crown helps to protect your chimney from water, it’s imperative to get it fixed as soon as a problem is discovered with it.
Finally, we always recommend waterproofing after the completion of your chimney masonry repair. This will help to extend the life of your repair and keep your chimney protected from water.
From fireplaces to gas log sets
