Chimney & Fireplace Service in Ontario NY

Ontario homeowners have counted on Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney since 1953 to keep their chimneys and fireplaces running safely and performing at their best. Here are some of the ways we can help you.

Licensed Chimney Inspections

As with chimney sweeping, chimney inspections are great ways to safeguard your chimney and keep it safe and efficient. We provide all three levels of inspection as recognized by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA).

When should you have your chimney inspected? Here are some recommendations: 

  • Once a year, whether or not there are problems
  • When selling your home (real estate video inspection)
  • When adding a new appliance to the chimney or otherwise altering the system
  • When a chimney fire or other event may have caused damage
  • When major chimney damage exists and needs to be diagnosed

Chimney Sweeping Ontario

Having your chimney swept once a year is important for two main reasons:

  1. Chimney sweeping removes flammable creosote and reduces the chance of a devastating chimney fire.
  2. Regular chimney cleaning keeps your flue free of leaves, twigs and animal nesting material, all of which can cause smoke and deadly carbon monoxide to back up into your Ontario home.

Chimney Caps & Chimney Chase Tops

Chimney caps for masonry chimneys and chase tops for manufactured chimneys are critical protective devices. They keep rain, snow and debris from entering your Ontario chimney and causing damage and draft blockages. We can repair some of these components, but if the damage is severe, we should replace them. For masonry chimneys, we recommend new, custom-built, full-width chimney caps that also protect the concrete chimney crown.

Chimney Liners

When a chimney liner is broken, cracked or split, it will allow high heat, flames and dangerous combustion gases to escape. The result can be a devastating house fire or the spread of carbon monoxide throughout your room. The Felgemacher crew can repair some types of chimney liner damage. In many cases, it’s best to just replace the old liner with a new UL-listed stainless-steel liner that will provide years of safe, reliable service.
