Annual chimney cleaning is important to remove flammable creosote and any debris that might be causing an obstruction in your chimney flue. Creosote is highly flammable, and leaves, small-animal nests and other debris can hamper drafting and cause smoke and carbon monoxide to back up into your home. High’s Chimney Service is a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild. Our field technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America. You can count on us to get the job done right the first time.
Chimneys sometimes need repairs. We’re here to help with all manner of chimney repairs for our McLean customers including:
We’ll detect problems early and provide a speedy solution.
A leaky chimney can lead to extensive structural damage. Water, over time, is corrosive to bricks and mortar and can eventually begin to eat away at your home’s building materials. Signs of a chimney leak include water in the firebox, staining on the bricks, discoloration of walls and foul odors coming from the fireplace. We’ll find out where the leak is and get if fixed fast.
Chimney Masonry Work
Our certified technicians are expert masons who can address any trouble with your chimney structure. Small cracks can often be sealed over before they enlarge and allow more damaging water to infiltrate the system. If sections of brick and mortar have decomposed and fallen away, we can perform tuckpointing, a process of re-filling open areas with fresh new mortar to restore safety to your chimney.
In cases of extreme damage and wear due to old age, extreme weather events or the normal settling of the house, a chimney may need to be partially or completely rebuilt. We have the hands-on experience to perform this work correctly and safely.
