Chimney Repair

Midtown Chimney Sweeps is ready to assist you in the maintenance and repair of your fireplace or chimney. Our certified chimney technicians will review any type of light chimney repair or maintenance that is recommended for your home.

Chimneys are often one of the most neglected, undetected, or misdiagnosed systems in the modern American household. This is unfortunate, since the safe operation of our fireplaces and wood stoves requires a properly working chimney. During your annual chimney inspection, our certified chimney sweeps will be able to determine the condition of your chimney and offer solutions for chimney repair and maintenance should it be required. Most chimney venting complaints are the result of poor draft, excessive water vapor and corrosion inside the flue resulting in blocked flues. Our chimney services include,

 

 

It is highly recommended that your chimney be swept and inspected annually to learn as much as one can about the chimney prior to considering a proposal for any chimney repair. All our technicians are CCP Certified and professionally trained in the inspection process, and in professional courtesy.

 Common Repairs

The common repair items done to masonry chimneys are inside the firebox and up on the roof. The reason for this is simple. The harsh heat of the direct flame deteriorates the mortar and brick within the firebox, and up on the roof, the freeze-thaw cycle deteriorates the top of the chimney. After years of exposure to harsh elements and the by-products of combustion, the masonry material of your chimney can begin to deteriorate. Our chimney sweeps are skilled in masonry repair and tuckpointing (which is the repair of mortar joints) both inside the firebox and outside up on the roof. We can restore the look of your masonry chimney so that it looks and functions well again. The tuck pointing process includes chipping out loose mortar and pressing in new refractory cement mortar between the bricks. Common repairs on the rooftop portion of the chimney include both masonry repair and sheet metal work. Chimney flashing that is loose, cracked, or broken can allow water and moisture to seep into the wood framing of your roof, chimney, or attic causing serious and expensive water-damage repair. Because water damage requires extensive repair, it is best to take preventative measures to avoid this situation. Masonry chimneys often require tuckpointing of missing mortar joints above the roof line, as well as crown repair, flashing seal, and applying a quality water resistant coating.

 Chimney Repairs for Damaged Areas

  • The chimney crown is the part of the chimney that keeps water from entering the chimney structure.
  • It acts as a shed-style roof that diverts water away from the flue opening, protecting the inside of your chimney from moisture damage.
  • If the chimney crown is cracked or damaged, water will seep into the internal chimney components potentially causing extensive damage.

Our chimney crew will repair and seal or rebuild your chimney crown in order to ensure that rain, water, and snow cannot penetrate the delicate areas of your chimney. Factory built chimneys often require silicone to be applied to the exposed storm collar, or a new chase cover to be fabricated and installed on top of a factory built chimney chase.

Our chimney services cover all aspects of repair for masonry and factory-built chimneys. In order to provide you an accurate quote, for either type of repair, we recommend that you schedule a one-hour service call or your annual chimney sweep and dryer vent cleaning with a Certified Midtown Chimney Sweep.

    Had them come to do a chimney sweep and dryer vent clean for a condo I just purchased. They were efficient and amazingly helpful, performing the chimney sweep efficiently and going way above and beyond on the dryer vent clean! They found a bird's nest that had been lodged in the dryer vents and was a possible fire hazard - and took care of it and cleaned everything perfectly. I will definitely use them again for future annual chimney sweeps and would highly recommend the to anyone around! Thank you so much!

    Tikar was really professional, punctual and got straight to work. He answered all of my questions and gave me some helpful info about the wood burning stove since I've never used one before. Thank you, Tikar!

    I've used these guys twice and had an excellent experience both time. Scheduling is easy and communication with the company is very professional. They were very conscientious about putting down drop cloths and keeping everything clean. And they went way above and beyond providing excellent service. I had bought a remote for our propane fireplace a year before and never installed it for myself. When Midtown installed it and it didn't work right away, they personally took it back the place from whom I'd made the purchase to troubleshoot before returning to complete the installation. And spent a ton of extra time on the return trip because they discovered a gasket on that fireplace needed to be replaced and they did it right then and there. I can't say enough good things about these guys!

    Great customer service and really helpful!!

    My experience with Midtown Sweeps was primarily through their employee, Jason Allen, who was polite, efficient and knowledgeable. The top of one of my fireplace chimneys had blown off during a major windstorm which is common in Evergreen. I also had a problem with a woodpecker getting in the chimney and wood-pecking on it at all times of the day and night. Jason efficiently climbed on the roof and replaced the chimney top and we had a fun discussion about woodpeckers. If Jason represents Midtown Sweeps as a typical employee, then I recommend the company at a high level and would recommend the company to anyone who needs chimney support.
