Why Is Fireplace Service Important?

Fireplaces can add warmth, charm, and ambience to any home, but they require regular maintenance and occasional repairs to stay safer and completely functional – just like any other major appliance or system in your home.

What many don’t know is that their chimney system is made up of several components and moving parts – like the firebox, smoke chamber, flue, chimney crown, chimney cap, and more – all of which need to be in tip-top shape for your system to operate seamlessly. And if any of those components get damaged, it can make it unsafe for you to use your fireplace and even lead to further damage throughout your household.

This is why regular chimney inspections and maintenance are the gold standard for keeping your fireplace and chimney in the best shape possible. We recommend that you have our certified chimney techs inspect your chimney system at least once a year. This allows us to take a proactive approach at the first signs of any damage. 

Need to find a reliable Raleigh chimney sweep, but find yourself stressing out as you shuffle through your options? Look no further – we’re here to help every step of the way.

Our Chimney Services in Raleigh, NC & Beyond

As a full-service, fully licensed, fully insured chimney and fireplace company, we travel throughout Raleigh making sure our neighbors’ chimneys, fireplaces, and dryer vents are in excellent working order, year after year. Our services cover just about every aspect of chimney and venting care and include:

  • Chimney Inspection: Chimney inspections help guarantee that flaws and creosote buildup or other debris are spotted and taken care of long before lighting your first fires of the year.
  • Chimney Sweeping: Alongside regular chimney inspections, you should also schedule yearly chimney sweeps. Our state-of-the-art tools and techniques allow us to thoroughly remove creosote buildup, debris, and other blockages that have been created by animals, tree branches, twigs, leaves, or soot.
  • Chimney & Fireplace Repair: We offer a wide range of fireplace and chimney repair services, such as installing chimney caps to prevent water and animal intrusion, repairing chimney masonry to maintain its structural integrity, chimney relining so you know your chimney is safe to use, firebox repairs, damper replacement, and diagnosing and resolving chimney leaks.
  • Fireplace Installation: Let’s talk about a fireplace installation and fireplace restoration. If you’ve got a fireplace that’s looking more like an eyesore rather than a beautiful focal point of the room, we can help! Whether that’s upgrading your hearth, installing a new mantel, or finding an insert that is more efficient than the old fireplace you have now, our team can bring your vision to life. Turn to us for prefabricated fireplaces, retrofit fireplaces, gas fireplaces, wood-burning fireplaces, and outdoor fireplace products.
  • Chimney Leak Repair: Chimney leak repair involves identifying and addressing issues that allow water to penetrate and damage the chimney structure or surrounding areas. Common causes of chimney leaks include damaged flashing, deteriorated mortar joints, cracked chimney crowns, and porous bricks or stones. We can find and repair your chimney leak, and then provide waterproofing services to protect your masonry down the line.
  • Gas Service & Repair: Did you know gas log sets and gas fireplace inserts require yearly maintenance services too? While it’s true that gas fireplaces are generally low-maintenance, they still require some maintenance services to ensure they continue to provide safe and efficient heat all year round.
  • Dryer Vent Cleaning: Some people are surprised to find that we also specialize in dryer vent cleaning services. That’s because a clogged dryer vent poses similar safety hazards to that of a blocked chimney. Over time, lint and debris can accumulate in the dryer vent. When hot air from your dryer doesn’t have a clear passage out of your home, it can create a potential fire hazard. If you didn’t already know, dryer lint is extremely flammable. Our professional dryer vent cleaning services are designed to address concerns and keep your home safer and your dryer functioning at its best.
  • Wildlife Removal: Animal removal for chimneys involves the safe and humane extraction of wildlife that has taken residence in or around chimneys. Common intruders include birds, squirrels, raccoons, or other small animals seeking shelter, and the process typically includes a thorough inspection to identify the type of animal and any potential entry points. Our trained professionals then use specialized methods to carefully remove the animals, followed by securing the chimney to prevent future entry.

Whether you have an older home in the historic Oakwood neighborhood, or you live over in Five Points, Brier Creek, North Hills, South Park, Hunter Park, Herndon Place, Fuller Heights, College Crest, Middleton Place, Ridge Park, Fallon Oaks, Bryn Mawr, Boylan Heights, or somewhere else in North, Northwest, East, Southeast, or Southwest Raleigh, we hope you’ll call on Mr. Smokestack when you need reliable, high-quality chimney services.

Currently writing this review while sitting in my toasty living room on a cold evening with a fire going thanks to Andrew and team at Mr Smokestack! I put off my fireplace repair for a while and am so glad I finally got it serviced and up and running. The crew was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and efficient. Everything was explained thoroughly and prices were very fair and transparent upfront. I’m finally looking forward to the winter weather with a functioning fireplace!

Why We Love Raleigh, NC

Raleigh is one of those cities that truly has something for everyone. All it takes is one visit to fall in love with the great schools, the great job opportunities, the great homes, and the great local restaurants and shops in the area. But what makes it truly a unique place is the perfect combination of small-town and big-city charm.

It’s the capital city of North Carolina and the home of North Carolina State University. And sure, there are plenty of big city things to enjoy in Raleigh, like the North Carolina Museum of Art, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, and amazing events all year long, but the “City of Oaks” offers so much more.

For nature lovers and active individuals, there’s Pullen Park, which has a lake, a miniature train, playgrounds, sports fields, trails, and even a carousel. The Raleigh Greenway (aka the Neuse River Trail) is also a great option for getting moving and taking in the beauty of the area. And then of course, there’s William B. Umstead State Park.

For those looking to shop ’til they drop, there’s Triangle Town Center, Crabtree Valley Mall, Lafayette Village, Mission Valley Shopping Center, Brier Creek Commons, Poyner Place, and more. No matter where in the city you are, there are plenty of places to find just what you’re looking for.

And of course, food. Raleigh has so many amazing choices that it’s hard to decide where your next meal should come from.

But the thing we love most about the great city of Raleigh? It’s our home (we’re right off of Fayetteville Rd.), and it’s where so many of our amazing customers live. We’ve been serving the area for over a decade, and we’re happy to spend our days doing our part to keep Raleigh the great city that it is.
