Damaged chimney crowns are the leading cause of deterioration to masonry chimneys. On average, chimney crowns need replacing every 7 to 10 years due to constant abuse from Mother Nature. If left unattended, even minor cracking will allow water to penetrate into the chimney structure. The flexible solution is Crown Coat, your best defense against costly repairs.

Huge heat loss occurs when a chimney damper doesn’t seal properly or is missing or broken. You can’t see it, however, the heat just goes out of the house. If your damper is not sealed properly, it is like leaving the front door open in the middle of winter. We use the Energy Top lock-top damper. It is constructed of stainless steel and aluminum. The Energy Top lock-top damper also includes a cap for additional protection. They are easy to operate, they have a lifetime warranty, and they are made in the U.S.A.

The importance of chimney caps
Often times people want to put a cap on when they hear noise in the fireplace and think it may be a good idea to install a cap. Although putting a cap on for that reason is a great reason, the biggest culprit for chimney damage is the rain. It can damage the internals of the chimney all the way down to the firebox. Rain can also set off bad smell in the chimney, especially in warm weather if the chimney is dirty or has animal droppings. Our caps are made of U.S. stainless steel, they are made in the U.S.A., and they have a lifetime warranty.
Our chase covers (top pan) are custom made to fit your chimney. We offer them in stainless steel with a lifetime warranty or galvanized with a 7 year warranty, whatever fits your budget. Both are crafted with pride in the U.S.A.
Dryer vent cleaning
Did you know that every year over one hundred million homes, yes, one hundred million homes are the victims of fire due to the neglect of the exhaust of the dryer vents?
It can also be the cause of potentially hazardous conditions such as carbon monoxide. A certified dryer exhaust technician can inspect and clean your dryer vents and can also verify that the correct type of duct is in use.
As recommended by the Code 211 of NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) all chimneys including furnace chimneys should be inspected and serviced by a Certified technician yearly.
There are three levels of a chimney inspection
A Level I inspection (visual inspection) is what is performed in most homes. We carefully look over all 14 parts of your fireplace chimney and verify that the chimney is structurally sound, has no obstructions or combustible deposits (creosote), and all clearances are met.
A level II inspection (closed circuit video inspection) is recommended when the structural integrity of the internals is suspicious, that a malfunction may have caused damage to the internals, however not visible to the naked eye. Also, a chimney scan is highly recommended if you plan on converting your system, or if you plan the sale or purchase of a home. The level II inspection also includes the visual inspection of a Level I of all 14 parts of your chimney.
A level III inspection is when the system needs to be taken apart in order to have access to the damaged areas when serious hazards are suspicious.
