At High’s chimney, our lead sweep is always certified. No Rookies practicing on your house.

Many things can go wrong with chimneys, from holes in the mortar, cracks in the lining, deterioration due to exposure to weather etc. Usually, you’ll notice something wrong when your chimney stops venting properly, but you might not know exactly what’s wrong.

Keeping your gutters cleaned out is a very important part of home maintenance. Gutter cleaning removes blockages caused by leaves and other detritus.
