Amherst NY Chimney Sweep, Chimney Repair, Fireplace & Stove Installation & More
A suburb of Buffalo, Amherst is the most populated upstate New York town. It includes the village of Williamsville and the hamlets of East Amherst, Getzville, Swormville, Eggertsville and Snyder. Amherst is a very livable community and one with a focus on higher learning as it is home to the University at Buffalo’s north campus, the graduate campus of Medaille College, a satellite campus of Bryant & Stratton College, and Daemen College.
Residents here care about their lifestyles and their homes. Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney has been helping Amherst homeowners keep their chimneys and fireplaces safe and in top shape since 1953.
CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep
Chimneys connected to wood-burning appliances need annual cleaning to prevent a buildup of creosote, which can lead to a disastrous chimney fire. Felgemacher’s professional, trained chimney sweeps are certified through the Chimney Safety Institute of America and bring years of experience to chimney cleaning jobs throughout Amherst and other Western New York communities.
We use industry-grade equipment including electronic brushes, scrubbers, vacuums and solvents to remove built-up creosote. We also remove drafting obstructions such as tree debris and the nests of small animals that can hamper the drafting of smoke and send dangerous carbon monoxide into your home.

Repair & Installation of Chimney Caps, Flue Caps & Chimney Chase Tops
Chimney caps and flue tops on masonry chimneys and chimney chase tops found on pre-fab chimneys are critical components that help to prevent water and other kinds of damage to your chimney. When these devices are worn, rusted, broken or warped, they need to be repaired or replaced quickly.
If your chimney has no chimney cap, or if it’s just getting by with a basic flue cap, we recommend installing a full hip and ridge custom chimney cap that covers and protects the entire top of your chimney.
