A residential masonry chimney is normally constructed of common masonry and metal chimney materials – usually brick, mortar, concrete, concrete block, stone, flue tile, steel and iron. All masonry chimneys contain combinations of (or possibly all of) these materials, most residential chimney products can be adversely affected by cold, heat, snow or water.
We always recommend annual chimney sweeps, regular chimney cleanings, flue cleanings, fireplace cleanings and or woodstove cleanings by a certified chimney sweep who will use a professional grade creosote cleaner to reduce the risk of a chimney fire. Our chimney maintenance, inspection and cleaning services can usually find and repair chimney damage to any part of your fireplace pipe, freestanding wood burning stove pipe or regular, ordinary chimney.

Chimney Sweeping & Cleaning
A dirty chimney is not only dangerous but inefficient. Chimney fires start when creosote accumulates inside the chimney flues.
