Folks in Williamsville take pride in their homes and properties, and Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney helps many of them with routine and emergency chimney and fireplace service.
CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep
Felgemacher has served Williamsville and other villages, cities and towns from Buffalo NY to Rochester NY since 1953. Our professional, trained chimney sweeps are ready year-round to carefully remove flammable creosote and drafting obstructions from your chimney. Why is this important?
- Creosote, a byproduct of combustion, is the cause of most chimney fires in the U.S. each year.
- Obstructions such as falling tree debris and the nests of squirrels, birds and other small animals create drafting problems that can send deadly carbon monoxide into your home when a fire is burning.
Put our expert chimney sweeps to work on your chimney once a year to keep it safe and running optimally.

It’s often a professional chimney inspection that turns up a need for chimney repair work. When you have your chimney inspected annually, you ensure that the masonry structure and all the chimney and fireplace components are working safely and performing as they should. Felgemacher offers all three recognized levels of chimney inspection in and around Williamsville NY.
Level 1: This is the typical yearly inspection, covering all visible areas of the chimney and its components.
Level 2: These inspections are called for when:
- A new appliance is being hooked up or modifications are being done to the chimney/fireplace system;
- You’re selling your home;
- A chimney fire, weather event or other circumstance is suspected to have caused damage within your chimney.
Level 3: This inspection is performed when significant damage has been found during a previous inspection and may require the removal of sections of the chimney or adjacent materials of the home.
Chimney Cap/Flue Cap/Chase Top Repair & Installation
Masonry chimneys usually have chimney caps or flue caps at their tops. Factory-built chimneys come with chimney chase covers. All these components are in place to keep water and other intrusions from damaging the chimney system.
If the chimney cap or chase top at your Williamsville home is damaged, we can repair or replace it. If you have no chimney cap or just a basic flue cap that offers only partial protection, we can install a handsome new full hip and ridge custom chimney cap. With this full-width cap in place, you’ll get total protection for the entire top of your chimney.
