Let's Build Something Together
Most people adopt an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach to their chimneys. However, regular maintenance can prevent expensive repairs.
Keep your chimney clean, safe, and in good working condition.
Our experienced technicians perform a thorough inspection to check for any signs of damage or other issues that could affect its performance. We provide you with an immediate detailed report and recommend any necessary repairs.
The top-to-bottom sweep service removes debris, creosote, and other materials that can build up in your chimney over time.
Here is what to expect:
- Lay protective tarps to keep the home clean
- Inspect the chimney and all components
- Clean creosote and debris from the roof down
- Remove debris at the base with a specialized vacuum
- Provide immediate results of the inspection
Your chimney is constantly exposed to all types of weather elements that cause deterioration over time. If neglected, it can lead to more serious problems such as instability and water penetration.

We offer many solutions for repairs, restoration, or new construction.

Dismantle the chimney down to its foundation and rebuild it using the original materials and methods.
