Lewiston NY Certified Chimney Sweep & Chimney Repair | Stove and Fireplace Insert Sales & Installation
Lewiston NY is a town in Niagara County that’s steeped in history. Visitors enjoy checking out the Historical Association of Lewiston and Museum to learn about the people who made the town what it is today. Plenty of older and newer homes can be found within this town, which was named for New York Governor Morgan Lewis. When owners of those homes need special attention for their chimneys and fireplaces, they call Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney.
CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep in Lewiston NY
Felgemacher has been providing certified chimney sweep/chimney cleaning services to Lewiston residents since 1953.
Annual chimney cleaning is critical for two reasons:
To remove flammable creosote, which forms each time a fire burns. Creosote is the cause of the majority of chimney fires each year in the U.S.
To remove drafting obstructions such as leaves, twigs, air dust, small-animal nests and dead small animals. These obstructions can cause smoke and deadly carbon monoxide to enter your home. For safety reasons, only a CSIA-certified chimney sweep should ever be hired to clean your chimney.

Chimney Caps, Flue Covers & Chimney Chase Tops
A proven way to protect the chimney at your Lewiston home is with your chimney’s cap, flue cover or chase top. These components prevent damaging water and debris from getting into your chimney flue. Full-width chimney caps and chimney chase tops go even further by guarding the entire top of your chimney. Felgemacher’s experienced field technicians perform repairs on caps, covers and chase tops. We’ll install a new component if your current one is severely damaged or missing.
