Chimney Inspections & Sweeping
Our CSIA Certified Chimney Sweeps use state-of-the-art equipment to inspect and sweep chimneys of all kinds, including oil-, wood-, coal-, pellet-, and gas-burning chimneys. While sweeping your system, we ensure that itâs in working order. We look for any problems that could prevent peak performance and recommend what is needed for your system to burn cleanly and properly. When necessary, we use video inspection camera equipment to examine hidden parts of the flue. We do many REAL ESTATE inspections yearly for both BUYERS and SELLERS. We are a Preferred Contractor for Central Pa Agents.

Relining, Repair, and Restoration
Many older chimneys were built without flue liners. Never use a chimney that has not been properly lined, or has a cracked or damaged liner. The lining protects your chimney from further erosion and your home from any leaks. We are CSIA CERTIFIED to install stainless steel liners and all other Lining Systems. DO NOT TRUST your reline to anyone who isn't CSIA Certified.
We offer the full range of repairs to chimney systems, big and small, from repairing leaky flashing to tuckpointing and masonry repair to relining the flue and chimney rebuilding.
We will fix any cracks, loose bricks, or gaps in the mortar of your fireplace firebox. It is not safe to use your fireplace if you notice any deterioration in the firebox. Water damage resulting from a missing chimney cap is all too common. We remedy this situation by reconstructing the back walls of fireplaces, returning them to their original pristine condition. We can also parge your smoke chamber to eliminate smoke problems.
Improperly built crowns are another common problem. If yours is cracked or poorly constructed allowing water penetration or posing a fire hazard we will build a proper concrete one that's guaranteed not to crack.
Install Chimney Caps
The best way to prevent moisture from rain and snow, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap. We carry only the BEST available. Our high-quality stainless steel caps carry a lifetime warranty.
Replace Chase Tops
Leaky or damaged chase tops, and those made of masonry, are potential hazards on prefabricated metal fireplaces. We help eliminate problems before they start by replacing masonry and rusty metal chase tops.
Waterproofing, Leak & Condensation Resolution & Repair
If water is damaging your chimney inside or out, we will find and fix it, no matter the source.
Air Vent Problem Resolution
The quality of the air you breathe in your home is important, and we take it seriously. Our technicians have extensive knowledge about the entire venting system in your house, and we have the expertise to detect and resolve the full range of air vent issues.
We will remove any animals (in a safe and humane way) that may have made a home in your chimney. Additional (but fair) charges will be added for animal removal.
