Keep your chimney well maintained, or your heating system will be much less efficient
or potentially hazardous. Chimneys are an integral part of your heating system and
require regular maintenance and repair.
Many different kinds of animals will take up residence in your chimney:
raccoons, rodents, squirrels, birds and more. Removing Animals from your chimney
can be humane and safe for all concerned.
Ultimate Chimney Sweep can install a Raccoon-proof Stainless Steel Chimney Cap
to prevent raccoons and other creatures from making your home theirs too.
Creosote builds up with normal use of your fireplace or woodstove and should be
removed from your chimney to prevent fires. Fires started by creosote build up
in the chimney flue burn hot and fast.
The flue is the internal piece of your chimney that removes
the exhaust from your
fireplace or woodstove to the outside. Flues can become damaged or blocked over
time. The flue is where you will have the creosote buildup, a fire hazard. Ultimate
Chimney Sweep can clean, repair or replace your flue to minimize the risk of fire.
Firebox Repointing & Rebuilding
The firebox is the brick area of a fireplace where your fire is built. Over time
the mortar that holds the bricks together cracks. This mortar should be repaired
to keep the bricks in place and is called repointing. The bricks prevent excessive
heat from starting a fire. Ultimate Chimney Sweep restores
deteriorating, unsafe chimney to full code complying condition quickly
Crown & Cap Repair
Your chimney top is far from sight, but clearly exposed to potential problems. A
stainless steel chimney cap and properly constructed chimney crown prevent damaging
water penetration and deny access to birds, other animals and debris. Chimney caps
keep out rain animals and debris. We carry 100 % stainless steel caps and can also
order them in copper or black.
The Damper closes the flue to your fireplace when not in use. It prevents heat from
escaping your home in cold weather and air conditioning from escaping your home
in the summer. Ultimate Chimney sweep can repair or replace faulty dampers; which
will lower your heating AND cooling costs.
