CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep
Wood-burning fireplaces cause creosote to form in their chimneys every time they’re used. Creosote is highly flammable and is responsible for most chimney fires in U.S. homes every year. Our professional, trained chimney sweeps use industry-grade equipment to thoroughly and safely remove creosote, soot and any other drafting obstructions from your chimney.
Fire-safety organizations throughout America recommend annual chimney sweep services. Felgemacher works year-round to provide the very best in chimney sweeping to ensure chimney safety and fireplace efficiency.

Certified Chimney Inspection
If it’s been more than a year since your last chimney inspection, it’s a smart idea to schedule one now. Our professional chimney inspectors are trained to spot problems and diagnose issues with your chimney and fireplace and recommend the best steps to remedy the problem. Annual chimney inspections will save you money on big repairs and help keep your chimney safe to use.
Felgemacher performs all levels of chimney inspection as recommended by the Chimney Safety Institute of America:
Level 1: The standard inspection covering visible areas of the chimney structure and its components.
Level 2: This inspection is performed when a chimney fire or other damage has happened, when modifications are being done such as adding a new appliance or converting from wood to gas, and when the home is being sold.
Level 3: Level 3 chimney inspections are scheduled when significant damage has occurred that needs more in-depth investigation than either of the other two inspection levels will afford.
Have your North Buffalo chimney inspected by a certified chimney technician once a year and keep your home and fireplace system safe.
Chimney Caps, Flue Caps & Chase Tops
When there is damage to the chimney cap or flue cap on a masonry chimney or the chimney chase cover on a pre-fab chimney, it opens a path for water to infiltrate the system and start a cycle of deterioration. Water in a chimney will lead to chimney leaks, masonry damage, flue liner damage, corrosion on the fireplace damper and more.
Felgemacher repairs these protective components throughout all North Buffalo neighborhoods. For homeowners who have a damaged flue cap or no cap at all, we recommend the installation of a fine new full hip and ridge custom chimney cap. These full-width chimney caps provide solid protection across the entire top of your chimney including the flue openings and the cement chimney crown.
