While your fireplace is keeping your home warm and cozy, a layer of creosote is sticking to the chimney. And when these layers get above 1/8” in thickness, it is enough to spark a fire that can cause severe damage to your home. According to fire safety experts, most home fires is due to excessive creosote in the chimney. As a member of the Chimney Safety Institute of America, we recommend homeowners clean their chimney at least once per year. Our Certified Chimney Sweeps have the training, skills and equipment to remove these contaminants along with soot, ash and other particles from the flue. In addition, the sweep will also climb to the top of the chimney and remove any tree branches, animal nests, pests and other debris that may be blocking the flue.
Since minor problems can develop into major repairs, we recommend fixing any chimney issue as soon as possible. We perform all types of chimney repairs in Great Falls, including:

Our Certified Chimney Professionals are expert masons who will quickly diagnose any chimney issue you are having and make the necessary repairs for a safe, efficient and functioning chimney.
When water leaks in the flue or on the sides of the chimney it can soften the masonry and cause damage to internal components. This also can create a safety issue with an increased risk of fire and carbon monoxide exposure. Some of the signs of a water leak include water spots or stains on the interior walls, moisture in the firebox or an unpleasant odor. Our trained technicians will inspect your chimney to locate and repair the source of the leak. It is not safe to use your fireplace or chimney until the leak has been properly repaired.
Chimney Masonry Work
If your chimney was built more than 15 to 20 years ago, it is probably starting to show signs of wear and tear. Some issues are easy to see like small cracks in the masonry, missing bricks or gaps in the mortar joints. Others like a cracked crown or chase top, cracked liner and damaged flashing may not be discovered until a routine chimney inspection. Our expert chimney masons provide outstanding masonry work who will restore your chimney to its fully functioning glory days. Our Certified Chimney Reliners can repair or replace the liner that will improve safety & efficiency of your chimney.
A chimney that has developed serious structural issues either due to neglect, severe storms or a fire, may need a partial or complete rebuild.
