Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service: The Company Sanford, NC Trusts With Their Chimney & Fireplace

The city of Sanford, NC is full of small-town charm. While a quieter town like this, with a population of less than 30,000 people, may not be as well-known as some larger North Carolina cities, its unique blend of history, culture, and natural beauty makes it a hidden gem for those looking for a great place to call home.

Its rich historical significance, rooted in the development of railroads, is evident in the well-preserved historic downtown area. The Railroad House Historical Association consists of four important components:

  • the old brick depot built in 1910 (but refurbished to serve as Sanford’s visitor services center)
  • the railroad house, which is the oldest building constructed in Sanford (and is now a museum)
  • the old steam locomotive that worked between Sanford and Lillington until 1950
  • Depot Park, with its plentiful picnic tables, benches, and interactive water fountain

If you’re looking to dig deeper into history, be sure to visit House in the Horseshoe State Historic Site where you can uncover the compelling story of the American Revolutionary War.

Or if you’d rather spend your time enjoying the serene beauty of nature while indulging in a relaxing round of golf, make your way to the renowned Tobacco Road Golf Club.

Chimney & Fireplace Service Solutions for Every Need

One of the reasons we are considered the best in the business is because we have a solution for just about any problem you encounter with your fireplace. Our extensive range of services and expertise – that comes from being in business for over 17 years – ensures that we can address your needs effectively and efficiently. Some of the services we provide on a daily basis in Lee County include:

Chimney & Fireplace Sweeping, Cleaning & Inspection

It’s common to find creosote buildup, soot, and debris in chimneys – but that doesn’t mean it’s OK to leave it there. These things are actually the number one cause for chimney fires and should be cleared at least once a year (if not more, depending on how often you use your fireplace). The only sure-fire way to reduce the risk of a chimney fire is to have regular chimney sweeps performed by certified technicians, like us.

We also conduct thorough inspections of your chimney and fireplace system to identify potential hazards, structural issues, and necessary maintenance needs. Our services include both real estate inspections and yearly maintenance inspections.

Chimney & Fireplace Repairs

Our skilled technicians handle a wide range of fireplace and chimney repairs, addressing issues such as cracks, deterioration, or damage to your current setup. Our ultimate goal is to restore your system to its optimal functionality and safety so you can enjoy a warm and cozy home with complete peace of mind.

  • Chimney Relining: Our chimney relining or repair services are performed by experienced professionals who utilize the latest techniques and high-quality materials to ensure the structural integrity and safety of your chimney.
  • Crown Repair: Cracked or damaged chimney crowns oftentimes lead to leaky chimneys. In order to prevent water damage from spreading to other parts of your home, we are prompt in our assessments and repairs, keeping your home safer and drier for years to come.
  • Firebox Repair: Is your firebox showing signs of wear and tear or damage? Maybe you’re considering revitalizing it with a whole fireplace renovation. Regardless, we make sure the flames are safely contained within the firebox and the residual heat doesn’t cause damage to the surrounding masonry.
  • Damper Repair & Replacement: A properly functioning damper not only enhances the efficiency of your fireplace, but also provides control over the airflow. When your fireplace isn’t in use, it’s important to have a damper that closes completely in order to prevent heat from escaping and moisture, debris, and critters from having full access to your home.
  • Chimney Cap Repair & Replacement: Another important component in keeping unwanted things from coming into your home is the chimney cap. Due to its location, chimney caps are vulnerable to various environmental elements and wear factors. But don’t you worry – we repair and replace chimney caps in order to protect your chimney from these issues. You can count on us.
  • Gas Fireplace Service & Repair: Even low- maintenance gas fireplaces require yearly servicing and maintenance for safe and efficient operation. Our certified technicians provide expert care year after year.
  • Chimney Leak Repair: Anytime you suspect a chimney leak is a good cause for concern. Before you start stressing too much, though, allow the certified technicians at Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service to identify the source of the leak and provide effective solutions to prevent further water damage. We’ll assess the chimney’s condition, address vulnerabilities, and even implement waterproofing measures, like applying a waterproof sealant to the exterior brick and mortar of the chimney.

Chimney Masonry Repair & Restoration

We specialize in restoring damaged or deteriorating chimney masonry using methods such as tuckpointing, brick replacement, and mortar repair. Our skilled masons are careful to preserve the existing architecture while seamlessly blending the repairs. That way, your chimney not only regains its structural integrity, but also enhances the overall appearance of your home.

Our patented FireGuard system corrects mortar joint issues, misaligned flue liners, fractures, and cracks within the flue liners using pinpoint vibration and ceramic coating resurfacing. If you’d like to learn more about this option, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 919-747-1859.

Fireplace Restorations & Installations

Do you want to add a new prefabricated, retrofit, gas, or wood fireplace? We’ve got you covered. We can also assist with adding grills, fire pits, or outdoor fireplaces, as well as provide gas installation for your gas appliances. Our expert technicians work with you to bring your vision to life in your outdoor living space.

Wildlife Removal

Chimneys provide a warm, dark environment that is perfect for nesting birds and small animals, such as racoons and squirrels. These unwelcome visitors can cause a host of problems! Our team specializes in humane chimney animal removal and prevention.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Just when you thought there wasn’t possibly anything more we could help with, consider our dryer vent cleaning services. Proper dryer vent maintenance is essential to prevent lint buildup, reduce the risk of dryer fires, and improve overall dryer efficiency.

If you’ve never had your dryer vent cleaned – or are currently trying to figure out when the last time was that you had that done – then it’s time to get us on the job. Get on our schedule today!

Donnie and Michael replaced the base of our wood burning fireplace and the metal mesh curtain. They were very professional and completed the work quickly after explaining what they were going to do. They laid down a tarp to ensure the carpets were protected. We’ve used them now for several years and appreciate the work that they have done. I highly recommend them!
