  Question;
    Do I really need a chimney cap?

Answer;
    Chimney Caps are the best way to keep out unwanted Birds and Pests.
Chimney Cap installation usually can be done without much trouble although it may take some time to obtain the correct cap for your chimney. We must first take measurements to make sure that the cap fits properly. We may have a cap that fits with us but this may not be the case.
If not we will expedite the order of the proper cap for your chimney to ensure a quality job.

  Question;
    What is a top sealing chimney damper and what does it do?

Answer;
    Top sealing chimney dampers create a tight seal at the top of your chimney and keep energy in the home. The top sealing chimney damper is designed to stop cold air from coming down the flue, and expensive conditioned air from going up. The damper is manually operated with a lever at your fireplace.

  Question;
    What is a chimney crown and what does it do and why does it need to be repaired?

Answer;
    Chimney crowns are the area of the chimney at the top that seals the top opening preventing moisture and shedding rainwater stopping the chimney from deteriorating. Often chimney crowns are improperly built or deteriorate. Whether the chimney crown in question involves working with concrete, brick and mortar, or stone. Your chimney sweep can fix it.

  Question;
    Why do I need to clean my dryer vent and how is this done?

Answer;
    It recommend to thoroughly clean your dryer every 1 to 3 years, depending on usage and other factors. A good sign your dryer vents need cleaned is if clothes take noticeably longer to dry. Your chimney sweep will do a through job of cleaning the vent from top to bottom.

Tip;
    Clean the lint filter every time you run your dryer. It will help keep lint from building up in the vent (but not prevent it completely). It will also help your dryer run as efficiently as it can.

 

  Question;
    What is a service call?

Answer;
    This service is used to install your cap or small adjustments to your fireplace system.

  Question;
    What is a estimate?

Answer;
    Estimates are not inspections. We will give you a price on a known repair.
