Fireplaces in cold-winter parts of the country tend to be used a lot. That’s certainly true in the Elmwood Village area of Buffalo. As pleasurable as a fireplace can be, there are potential dangers that homeowners need to be aware of.
Every time fire burns, creosote is formed within the flue. Creosote can be flakey, sticky, puffy or solid, but it’s always flammable in any form. The expert chimney sweeps at Felgemacher perform annual chimney cleaning services using specialized tools and equipment to rid your chimney of creosote buildups as well as tree leaves, twigs, small-animal nests and other drafting obstructions.

Certified Chimney Inspection
A yearly chimney inspection can save you a lot of money and prevent trouble down the line. Our technicians are experienced in all three recognized levels of chimney inspection:
Level 1: An inspection covering all visible areas of your chimney.
Level 2: Necessary when you’re selling your home, when there has been a chimney fire or other damage, and when a new appliance is being added to your chimney or other modification work has been done.
Level 3: This inspection is performed when a Level 1 or Level 2 inspection has uncovered significant system damage or when damage is obvious.
Homeowners in Elmwood Village and other New York communities should schedule a yearly Level 1 chimney inspection to spot early signs of damage and get them repaired safely and correctly.
Chimney Caps, Flue Caps & Chase Tops
Damaged chimney caps and flue caps on masonry chimneys and damaged chimney chase tops (covers) on pre-fab chimneys make it easy for water to infiltrate your flue and begin a cycle of masonry damage, chimney liner damage and other issues. Felgemacher Masonry & Fireplace serves the entire Buffalo NY area with expert repair and replacement of these critical components.
If your chimney currently has no cap, or if it has a flue cap that covers only the flue pipe openings, we strongly recommend having a new full hip and ridge custom chimney cap installed. These full-width chimney caps provide protection against water and snow across the entire top of your chimney including the cement chimney crown.
