Our Services 

Masonry Repairs

Chimneys are constantly exposed to the elements, and water wrecks many of them. Tuck pointing and masonry repairs are an inevitable part of owning a masonry chimney. We specialize in making repairs with high-quality materials that will outlast other solutions. If you've got missing mortar joints or loosening brick, call in the experts to get your chimney back in shape. Contact us today for more information.

Damper Repair/Installation

A poorly fitted damper, or a missing or damaged damper, cost you money each winter - as the heated air in your home leaks up the chimney. Properly fitted and operational dampers save you money in yearly heating and energy bills. Our dampers are top-quality, and are installed by professionals. Contact us today for more information.

Contact Us >

Crown Repair

Chimney crowns act as a masonry roof over the empty part of your chimney chase - keeping water out of the chimney. Crowns take quite a bit of abuse, and need to be repaired or replaced when they crack or split due to weather. We have several solutions for cracked crowns depending on your particular situation. Contact us today for more information.

Water and moisture damage both the inside and outside of masonry chimneys. In early Spring and late Fall when the temperatures are above freezing during the day, and dip below freezing at night, damage is done to masonry chimneys when the water trapped inside them expands during freezing. Protect your masonry chimney with high-quality Chimney Saver waterproofing. Contact us today for more information.

Chimney Caps


 recently moved into a 40 year old house and the first fire I built filled the room with smoke.

I called Steve as he had previously swept my chimney earlier in the summer.

He recommended installing a smoke gaurd and parging the smoke chamber with chamber tech.

It solved the the problem and we had no smoke in the house with the next fire.

Steve and his crew were very professional during both their visits and I would not hesitate to call them again

Why‌ ‌Should‌ ‌I‌ ‌get‌ ‌my‌ ‌Chimney‌ ‌Cleaned?‌ ‌

Cleaning‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌is‌ ‌important‌ ‌to‌ ‌ensure‌ ‌the‌ ‌safety‌ ‌of‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney.‌ ‌A‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌sweep‌ ‌will‌ ‌remove‌ ‌soot,‌ ‌any‌ ‌possible‌ ‌blockages‌ ‌and‌ ‌built-up‌ ‌creosote‌ ‌from‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney.‌ ‌The‌ ‌build‌ ‌up‌ ‌of‌ ‌creosote,‌ ‌a‌ ‌highly‌ ‌flammable‌ ‌substance‌ ‌that‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌result‌ ‌of‌ ‌burning‌ ‌wood,‌ ‌in‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌increases‌ ‌your‌ ‌chance‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌dangerous‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌fire.‌ ‌Creosote‌ ‌sticks‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌inside‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌and‌ ‌is‌ ‌harder‌ ‌to‌ ‌remove‌ ‌the‌ ‌soot.‌ ‌Remember‌ ‌a‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌sweeping‌ ‌log‌ ‌should‌ ‌not‌ ‌replace‌ ‌an‌ ‌annual‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌sweep.‌ ‌Another‌ ‌important‌ ‌reason‌ ‌to‌ ‌get‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌sweeped‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌to‌ ‌remove‌ ‌any‌ ‌blockages.‌ ‌A‌ ‌blocked‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌can‌ ‌cause‌ ‌a‌ ‌dangerous‌ ‌amount‌ ‌of‌ ‌C02‌ ‌to‌ ‌build‌ ‌uo‌ ‌in‌ ‌your‌ ‌house‌ ‌when‌ ‌burning‌ ‌a‌ ‌fire‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌fireplace.‌ ‌If‌ ‌you‌ ‌are‌ ‌in‌ ‌need‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌cleaning‌ ‌contact‌ ‌Chimney‌ ‌Doctors‌ ‌today.‌ ‌

How‌ ‌often‌ ‌should‌ ‌I‌ ‌get‌ ‌a‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌inspection?‌ ‌

Chimney‌ ‌inspections‌ ‌should‌ ‌be‌ ‌scheduled‌ ‌once‌ ‌a‌ ‌year‌ ‌to‌ ‌ensure‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌is‌ ‌running‌ ‌smoothing.‌ ‌If‌ ‌you‌ ‌decide‌ ‌not‌ ‌to‌ ‌do‌ ‌a‌ ‌yearly‌ ‌inspection‌ ‌be‌ ‌sure‌ ‌to‌ ‌get‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌inspected‌ ‌if‌ ‌you‌ ‌see‌ ‌any‌ ‌performance‌ ‌issues‌ ‌with‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌or‌ ‌fireplace.‌ ‌If‌ ‌you‌ ‌see‌ ‌an‌ ‌issue‌ ‌with‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌don’t‌ ‌wait!‌ ‌Waiting‌ ‌can‌ ‌lead‌ ‌to‌ ‌consequences‌ ‌such‌ ‌as‌ ‌additional‌ ‌repairs‌ ‌or‌ ‌even‌ ‌worse‌ ‌a‌ ‌dangerous‌ ‌fire.‌ ‌If‌ ‌you‌ ‌are‌ ‌in‌ ‌need‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌chimney ‌inspection‌ ‌contact‌ ‌us,‌ ‌the‌ ‌Chimney‌ ‌Doctors‌ ‌today.‌ ‌

What‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌damper‌ ‌and‌ ‌why‌ ‌is‌ ‌it‌ ‌important?‌ ‌

A‌ ‌chimney‌ ‌damper‌ ‌helps‌ ‌to‌ ‌control‌ ‌ventilation.‌ ‌It‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌found‌ ‌inside‌ ‌the‌ ‌flue‌ ‌of‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney,‌ ‌usually‌ ‌with‌ ‌a‌ ‌chain‌ ‌or‌ ‌handle‌ ‌to‌ ‌help‌ ‌you‌ ‌to‌ ‌open‌ ‌or‌ ‌close‌ ‌it.‌ ‌Dampers‌ ‌have‌ ‌many‌ ‌important‌ ‌uses.‌ ‌Dampers‌ ‌can‌ ‌help‌ ‌to‌ ‌keep‌ ‌cold‌ ‌air‌ ‌out‌ ‌of‌ ‌your‌ ‌home‌ ‌when‌ ‌you‌ ‌are‌ ‌not‌ ‌using‌ ‌your‌ ‌chimney,‌ therefore‌ ‌helping‌ ‌you‌ ‌dave‌ ‌on‌ ‌heating‌ ‌bills.‌ ‌Dampers‌ ‌are‌ ‌also‌ ‌useful‌ ‌for‌ ‌controlling‌ ‌the‌ ‌intensity‌ ‌of‌ ‌your‌ ‌fire‌ ‌by ‌regulating‌ ‌how‌ ‌much‌ ‌oxygen‌ ‌flow‌ ‌through‌ ‌your‌ ‌fire.‌ ‌It‌ ‌is‌ ‌important‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌sure‌ ‌your‌ ‌flue‌ ‌is‌ ‌open‌ ‌when‌ ‌using‌ ‌your‌ ‌fireplace‌ ‌so‌ ‌that‌ ‌the‌ ‌smoke‌ ‌can‌ ‌escape.‌ ‌At‌ ‌Chimney‌ ‌Doctors‌ ‌we‌ ‌can‌ ‌fix‌ ‌a‌ ‌poorly‌ ‌fitted‌ ‌damper‌ ‌or‌ ‌replace‌ ‌a‌ ‌missing‌ ‌or‌ ‌damaged‌ ‌damper.‌ ‌Our‌ ‌dampers‌ ‌are‌ ‌top‌ ‌quality‌ ‌and‌ ‌with‌ ‌our‌ ‌professional‌ ‌the installation‌ ‌you‌ ‌are‌ ‌sure‌ ‌to‌ ‌save‌ ‌money‌ ‌on‌ ‌heating‌ ‌and‌ ‌energy‌ ‌bills.‌ ‌If‌ ‌you‌ ‌are‌ ‌interested‌ ‌in‌ ‌damper‌ ‌replacement‌ ‌or‌ ‌repair‌ ‌contact‌ ‌the‌ ‌Chimney‌ ‌Doctors‌ ‌today.‌ ‌ ‌
