Our chimney sweeps are trained professionals that use specialized tools, supplies, equipment, and safety gear to inspect, clean, and repair the chimney, flue, fireplace, heating, stove, or insert. Burning wood creates creosote, a flammable material produced when the oils in the wood are distilled into the fuel during combustion. So, the more often you use your fireplace to heat your home, the more creosote will accumulate inside the chimney. When creosote is not removed with regular chimney cleaning, it hardens into a thick, tarry, and flammable substance. It is the primary cause of chimney fires nationwide and in Mecklenburg County, NC. That’s why annual chimney inspections are incredibly vital if you have a wood-burning or gas-heating appliance.
You may be familiar with a saying popularized in the 1970s, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” However, that doesn’t apply to chimneys, fireplaces, and stoves. That’s because you can’t fix a potentially hazardous chimney or heating appliance if you don’t know a problem exists. And the only way to know for sure whether your chimney needs cleaning or repairs is with an annual chimney inspection. Otherwise, you may not discover a flue obstruction, water leak, creosote buildup, masonry cracks until more severe damage occurs – or even a devastating chimney fire. In addition, annual chimney inspections can minimize repairs in the long run and help you avoid a partial or complete chimney rebuild.
Owner-certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America and Members of the National Fireplace Institute, our skilled masons and professional chimney technicians are fully trained and qualified to make any chimney repair. Making timely repairs is the key to reducing the risk of fire, exposure to harmful contaminants, and structural damage. Here is a brief list of a few of the common repairs we routinely perform on Charlotte area chimneys:
- Chimney crown sealing
- Chimney rebuilding & restoration
- Damper assembly replacement
- Efflorescence removal
- Smoke chamber parging
Downtown Charlotte, like many older and historic homes in communities in North Carolina, have deteriorating clay terra cotta chimney liners. Clay liners are among the most common due to their affordability. However, clay flue tiles require frequent repair as they are vulnerable to cracking due to intense heat, corrosion, and moisture. When terra cotta liners are beyond repair, we typically recommend installing a flexible UL-Listed stainless-steel chimney liner. It will improve your fireplace or stove’s heating efficiency, reduce sooty deposits, and offer longer- lasting performance and durability in all climates. Plus, stainless steel is naturally moisture and pest-resistant.
