It is recommended that chimneys, inserts, and stoves receive annual inspections before the start of the burning season each year. These inspections and cleanings are critical in maintaining a safe and properly functioning appliance. Chimney cleanings and inspections check the interior and exterior of the chimney for areas of concern. Our NFI Certified experts are specially trained to notice areas that can easily be missed by an untrained eye. These cleanings will remove dangerous creosote deposits, check for damaged for missing chimney caps and chase covers, look for any structural damage and ensure the entire chimney system is in good working condition. We also conduct video inspections when necessary to better examine the interior liner and other elements of the chimney to ensure the entire system, from the inside out, is in good condition before operation.

At Chimney Specialists, our chimney experts are prepared and experienced with every type of chimney repair. Our chimney technicians can handle anything from a cap or crown replacement to a major chimney rebuild for a historical restoration. Our company has won numerous awards for our outstanding chimney repair services. Chimneys can deteriorate from the inside, out. So although a chimney looks fine on the outside, it could contain major issues on the inside. Chimneys that are used without a chimney liner will begin to deteriorate on the inside which, left unchecked, will ultimately end up requiring major reconstruction. At Chimney Specialists Inc. we have the skills and experience to repair even these internally deteriorated chimneys without tearing the structure down. Chimney Specialists is an authorized dealer of the AHRENS's Chimney Technique. This relining system is the best method for relining and restoring deteriorated masonry chimneys. Our experienced chimney technicians have won numerous awards for their restoration and relining skills.
Every chimney must have a chimney flue liner regardless of the fuel type. Gas, oil, wood or coal, all chimney systems must have a proper liner to ensure safe burning. A chimney liner is necessary for the system to vent properly and remove the carbon monoxide and other by-products of combustion from your home and protect the walls of the chimney. For masonry chimneys, Chimney Specialists Inc. prefers to use the AHREN's chimney liner technique. This liner not only protects the walls of the chimney, but it also reinforces them. This cast-in-place liner has many benefits that go beyond that of an ordinary liner. No matter what type of liner your chimney has, the important part is that the liner exists and is in good condition.
Chimney chase covers, crowns and caps are important protective parts of the chimney that are often neglected and can cause problems if not kept in good repair. Since these components are constantly subjected to the outdoor elements, our certified and experienced professionals can insure they maintain their functionality.
