Post Fire Loss Investigations
We always recommend the use video inspection equipment to examine hidden parts of the system. In the past, such examination consisted of a flashlight and mirror inspection. Now with closed circuit cameras we can more accurately inspect the interior of your venting system.
Ceramic and concrete flue liner resurfacing
We are licensed dealers for “Heat Shield” cerfractory sealant. “Heat Shield” is the only UL listed #2425, and tested repair on the market today. We recommend this product application to fill void spaces between flue liner sections and even cover formally fatal cracks within the liner itself. This repair restores the systems ability to contain the dangers parts of combustion like heat, smoke and carbon monoxide.
Waterproofing/Repair & Restoration
We offer a full range of repairs to chimney systems with evident water entry, big and small—from repairing leaky crowns to waterproofing exteriors and chimney caps. Water damage resulting from a missing chimney caps and damaged crowns is common. We remedy this situation by addressing these points of water entry.
Improperly built crowns are a common problem. If yours is cracked or poorly constructed—allowing water penetration —we’ll repair your crown and guaranteed that repair for up to 15 years.
Install Chimney Caps
The best way to prevent moisture from rain and snow, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap. Our high-quality caps carry a variety of warranties from six years to lifetime depending on the level of your investment.
Replace Chase Tops
Leaky or damaged chase tops are potential hazards on prefabricated metal fireplaces. Water entry left undetected and unresolved can aid in the premature rusting out of the listed fireplace systems. We can eliminate water entry issues at these locations by replacing rusty metal chase tops.
Dryer Vent Service
Reasons For Servicing Your Dryer Venting System:
- Reduces energy consumption. When there is no blockage, less stress is put on the appliance.
- Better Operation. All connections from the dryer to the exterior should be inspected to ensure they’re working properly. After removing the dryer vent from the wall, we use our professional Dryer Cleaning tool with a rotating brush to clear the inside of the tube of all debris. As we do this, we vacuum and blow the lint from the tube, restoring the flow of air through the system. Your dryer will work like it's brand new.
- Reduces the risk of fire. When the vent is blocked the dryer heats up and the risk for fire is increased. The lint buildup on the inner wall of the vent is flammable and if left behind, raises the risk of fire.
