Chimney Sweep in Lancaster NY
Felgemacher’s CSIA-certified chimney sweeps are on call to keep your chimney safe year-round by removing flammable creosote, which causes most chimney fires in the United States each year. We use specialized tools and equipment to effectively remove sticky, flakey or puffy creosote, which can damage the chimney liner as well as the interior masonry of your chimney. Our chimney sweeps also remove the nests of small animals, tree debris and other obstructions that can impede the flow of smoke and send deadly carbon monoxide back into your home when the fireplace is in use. We have the hands-on experience to clean your chimney right the first time.

Certified Chimney Inspections in Lancaster NY
Felgemacher is a family-owned chimney services company that has provided chimney inspections to residents of Lancaster NY and surrounding areas for more than 60 years. We perform all three CSIA-recognized levels of inspection:
Level 1: Basic inspection covering all visible areas of the chimney.
Level 2: Performed when the home is being sold, after an event is suspected to have caused damage and when the system is being modified (for example, adding an insert to the fireplace). Level 2 inspections involve the use of video imaging technology.
Level 3: Necessary when serious damage is known to exist. Often includes removing sections of the chimney and adjacent home building materials.
Chimney Caps, Flue Covers, Chase Tops
Chimney caps, flue covers and chase tops are among your chimney’s most important components. Widespread water damage can occur if these devices are broken or otherwise compromised.
- Full-width chimney caps seal off the flue opening(s) and protect the cement chimney crown from water damage
- Flue covers are caps that cover just the flue pipe(s)
- Chimney chase tops are found on factory built chimneys and guard the entire top of the structure
Our team provides expert repair and installation of new caps, covers and chase tops in Lancaster and surrounding areas.
