Chimney & Fireplace Services: What We Do

Sometimes we think it might be easier and quicker to tell you what we don’t do when it comes to fireplace and chimney care. Our comprehensive list of services is designed to meet all of your fireplace and chimney needs. Take a look!

  • Chimney & Fireplace Sweeping & Cleaning: Our certified chimney sweeps are experts in removing built-up soot, creosote, and debris from your chimney and fireplace, ensuring safer and more efficient operation – all while effectively reducing the risk of chimney fires.
  • Chimney & Fireplace Inspections: We conduct thorough inspections of your chimney and fireplace systems, identifying potential hazards, structural issues, and more. And if you’re buying or selling a home, you can count on our certified chimney technicians to assess the condition of the chimney and fireplace to ensure compliance with safety and building codes.
  • Chimney & Fireplace Repairs: Our skilled technicians perform a wide range of repairs, addressing issues such as cracks, deterioration, or damage to your chimney or fireplace, all while restoring them to their optimal functionality and safety. Count on us for chimney relining services, crown repairs, firebox repairs, damper repair/replacement, chimney cap repair/replacement, and more.
  • Gas Fireplace Service & Repair: Some people tend to forget that even a low-maintenance gas fireplace requires yearly servicing and maintenance to guarantee safe and efficient operation, prolong the lifespan of the appliance, and prevent potential issues that could lead to costly repairs in the future. The certified technicians at Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service will ensure your gas fireplace receives the expert care it deserves to provide you with warmth and peace of mind during the cold winter months.
  • Chimney Leak Repair: If you’re experiencing chimney leaks, we can help identify the source of the problem and provide effective solutions to prevent water damage. Our team will assess the condition of your chimney, address any cracks or vulnerabilities, and implement waterproofing measures to protect your chimney and home from further moisture infiltration.
  • Chimney Waterproofing: Speaking of waterproofing measures, did you know we could apply a special chimney waterproofing sealant that creates a protective barrier on your chimney’s exterior masonry? This sealant acts as a shield against rain, snow, and moisture, significantly reducing the risk of water damage and preserving the integrity of your chimney for years to come.
  • Chimney Masonry Repair & Restoration: Restoring and repairing damaged or deteriorating chimney masonry is one of our specialties. We use a few different methods and techniques, including tuckpointing, brick replacement, and mortar repair. Our skilled masons carefully assess the extent of the damage and select the appropriate method to ensure that your chimney not only regains its structural integrity, but also looks aesthetically pleasing. We carefully work to match the existing brick and mortar, seamlessly blending our repairs with the original construction.
  • FireGuard: The FireGuard system is a patented system designed to correct mortar joints, misaligned flue liner sections, and fractures and cracks within flue liners. The system employs a pinpoint vibration to penetrate mortar joints and fractures as well as to help distribute the ceramic cost for resurfacing.

We Also Offer Dryer Vent Cleaning & Wildlife Removal Services

Do your dryer vents need excessive lint buildup removed? Is there an animal in your flue? Worried foreign objects and nesting materials are clogging things up? We offer dryer vent cleanings and can remove wildlife from your flue or vents too. Here’s a bit about both services:

  • Dryer Vent Cleaning: Your dryer vent works similarly to your chimney in that it serves as a critical ventilation system within your home. So in addition to chimney services, we also provide dryer vent cleaning to prevent lint buildup, reduce the risk of dryer fires, and improve dryer efficiency.
  • Wildlife Removal: Chimneys are a warm, dark environment that is perfect for attracting unwanted animals and their nests. We can safely and humanely remove them, while also providing necessary repair and preventive measures to ensure this cozy spot remains exclusively for your fireplace’s use.
