An uncapped chimney:
- Says “come on in, make yourself at home!” to nesting birds and animals.
- Allows rain, snow and other debris to enter your chimney, which leads to moisture damage and expensive repairs.
- Creates a fire hazard as burning embers and sparks escape through the open chimney and can land on your roof or in your yard.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Have you noticed that your clothes are taking longer to dry? Lint builds up in your system and slows down the flow which rises the temperature and the possibility of fire. That means, your dryer has to work harder to compensate for this reduction of airflow. We inspect and clean dryer vents in homes. A thorough sweep includes searching for any issues that might interfere with optimal operation.Contact Us

We can help prevent deadly carbon monoxide from penetrating through your unlined or deteriorating Chimney. Before we explain what a chimney relining system is, let’s learn what a chimney lining system is. Most masonry chimneys are constructed with an inner liner of clay tiles. The purpose of this liner is to keep the heat of flue gases inside the chimney so the chimney can’t overheat the nearby combustible material, such as the framing and walls of your house, and possibly cause a fire. The liner also keeps carbon monoxide, moisture, smoke, creosote, and other products of combustion from seeping through the bricks and mortar of your chimney and leaking into your home. As you can see, a secure lining system is crucial to the safety and well being of your home and family.This brings us to a chimney relining system. What is it? Simple. It’s what you need when the original clay tile liner was either never installed, or when the tile lining cracks, crumbles and deteriorates over time. Water damage, chimney fires, or just age can cause the deterioration of your clay liner. When that happens the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) code 211 says it must be replaced. The most popular, effective and economical way to reline your chimney is with UL listed, HomeSaver stainless steel relining pipe. HomeSaver has been used for over 25 years in chimneys throughout North America and is the industry leader

Without being protected all new and existing masonry chimneys are susceptible to water damage, even if repaired. Because chimneys project above the roof line, they are vulnerable to the elements. Water damage can be prevented. ChimneySaver Water Repellents come with a 10 Year Warranty and have been used by chimney professionals for nearly 20 years. It reduces water penetration into the masonry by 99.9% according to ASTM tests conducted at the University of WyomingContact Us
