What Fireplace & Chimney Services Do You Provide?

While many of our competitors only offer preventive maintenance services, like cleanings and chimney inspections, we’re proud to provide our community with a wide range of service offerings from minor leak repairs to more intensive rebuilds and everything in between. Accordingly, our hearth, chimney, and venting services can be categorized into two different groups: preventive routine maintenance and repair.

Preventive Maintenance Services

This category contains the services that are meant to be regularly conducted on an annual basis. These tasks are the ones that are meant to ensure the safe and efficient function and operation of your fireplace, stove, and other venting systems. Within this group of services, we offer the following:

  • Chimney Inspections (Levels I – III): Designed to be a diagnostic overview of your entire fireplace system, chimney inspections involve a detailed look into all the parts and pieces working together. Unlike a chimney sweeping (also known as cleaning), an inspection won’t remove any caked-on debris or brush off the dust found within the walls of the flue, but instead gives you a detailed look at the condition of that which is otherwise inaccessible.
  • Chimney Cleaning: Often confused with chimney inspections (because both are important services that must be performed once a year), a chimney cleaning involves the use of specialized tools and brushes to remove creosote and other debris found within the system. Without either one of these vital services, it is not safe to use your fireplace, stove, or other flame-producing appliance because of the dangers associated with lingering exhaust fumes and byproducts.
  • Dryer Vent Cleaning: Seemingly out of place, huh? Though at first it makes little sense that a chimney service company would offer dryer vent cleaning, when you stop and think about it, we’re actually the best ones for the job! Sure, the appliance and produced fumes are different, but the functionality and purpose of the venting system is the same. Having your dryer vents professionally cleaned out every year can save you from the potential of dryer fires and other potential dangers like carbon monoxide exposure.

Chimney & Fireplace Repairs

No matter if you’re experiencing minor setbacks and inefficiencies, or perhaps it’s time to look at scheduling a comprehensive structural rebuild, the team of pros here at Ashbusters excels in meticulous chimney repairs. Regardless of chimney type – prefabricated or masonry – we’ve got repair services to fit your needs:

  • Chimney Leak Repair: Due to the precariousness of the chimney’s function and physical presentation, a leaky chimney is a rather common occurrence – and, unfortunately, there isn’t just one place where a leak can spring. The good news is that our techs can quickly locate the root cause and repair it accordingly.
  • Chimney Relining: Despite the fact that they could be classified as “out of sight out of mind,” your chimney liner performs a very important and multifaceted job. When it’s suffering from various damages or deterioration, not only is your chimney system at risk, so, too, is the rest of your home. We offer a couple different relining options to suit your needs.
  • Gas Service & Repair: Whether you’ve begun to notice your gas logs accumulating dust and grime, or something just doesn’t seem to be working the way it should, we know our way around a gas system. We also offer those preventive chimney cleanings and inspections for gas-fueled appliances as well.
  • New Masonry Construction: If you’re looking to invest in a new masonry chimney for your Wraggborough home, the team of expert masons at Ashbusters can build you the structure of your dreams. And thanks to our careful craftsmanship and high quality materials, you can trust that it will stand the test of time.
  • Chimney Rebuilds & Restorations: Similarly, we’re also proud to offer current structural rebuilds and restorations – ranging from only part of your chimney to the entire thing. We can remove broken bricks and – using a specifically curated mix of mortar that matches what you already have – replace them with brand new ones that reinforce your chimney.
  • Chimney Demolition: …and if you’re tired of having a chimney altogether? Well, we can help with that, too – taking care to keep the destructive mess to a minimum.
  • Chimney Waterproofing: A brick chimney is only as strong as the weather/waterproofing agent used to seal it. Despite brick’s reputation as a strong and reliable material, water and other moisture can wreak absolute havoc if not treated properly. Our CSIA-certified technicians use only the best, professional-grade waterproofing products that allow for both system breathability and water protection.
  • Tuckpointing/Repointing: When the mortar holding your brickwork together begins to crack, crumble, and deteriorate before your eyes, your entire chimney system is compromised. To mitigate this issue, we provide excellent repointing services that replace your old mortar with some new stuff that is the perfect mixture of various components.

If, for whatever reason, you can’t seem to find exactly what you’re looking for – or you have a question about anything we’ve outlined here – we encourage you to get in touch with someone from our team. While first and foremost we are a chimney service company, we also aim to be an informational hub where our community can learn more about and familiarize themselves with their home heating appliances. All our technicians are not only highly trained, skilled, and certified, but they’re friendly, too! We’re always happy to discuss concerns and answer questions as best we can.

You can reach us right here, online, by filling out this form, or give us a call at 843-595-4927. No matter where you are in your fireplace and chimney journey, we’re here for you.

Alec was amazing! He walked me through his process and told me what to do and what to expect in the future. ALL CUSTOMER SERVICE people could learn from Alec! Alec and the office staff helped my surpirise my wife with a fireplace and chimney overhaul. She never knew anything had been done until she saw the fire burning…. THANKS GANG!!!!!!!!!! You Rock!

How Do I Know If My Chimney Needs Repair?

Well, that’s just it: you don’t. Not always, anyway. The thing is, most often, by the time you are aware of existing damage and thus the need for repair, it’s usually a sign that the damage is severe. This, of course, does not mean that it’s too late to fix, or beyond repair, but it does mean that you might be looking at spending a pretty penny to get it taken care of.

That’s why industry professionals are so adamant about homeowners establishing a routine maintenance structure and sticking to it – those services are designed to point out inefficiencies and other suspicious areas before they really become a problem.

That said, there are still some glaring things to keep an eye out for that indicate something isn’t right with your fireplace or chimney:

  • Lingering smells of smoke, must, or mold in and around your fireplace
  • Strange system behavior, like trouble lighting a fire or having one stay lit
  • Excessive smoke production or other issues with backdrafting
  • Signs of water damage such as spotting on nearby walls or the ceiling, and/or noticeable dripping or leaking
  • Signs of animal entry such as skittering noises, presence of droppings or nesting materials, or strange odors
  • External discoloration on your brickwork

Remember, this list is not designed to be inclusive or exhaustive, but rather a brief list of examples that illustrate the results of chimney damage. It’s also important to note, too, that signs such as these are cause for concern and prompt attention.

To optimize the safety of both your family and your appliance, if and when you notice anything out of the ordinary, you should seek professional assistance sooner rather than later. Plus, the quicker you call someone out to repair your appliance, the less money you’ll end up paying in the long run when the damage worsens and the required repairs are much more intensive.

Need To Schedule a Dryer Vent Cleaning Service? We Do That Too!

We mentioned it earlier, but it is worth revisiting: Ashbusters Chimney Service is proud to offer professional dryer vent cleaning services to Wraggborough homeowners. Dryers are one of the leading causes of house fires due to the lint accumulation found in their vents. While the lint trap is designed to catch a great deal of lint and other debris found on freshly washed clothes, there is still a good amount that sneaks by and finds its way into the vent, where exceptionally hot air is transported out of the appliance.

In the same way that it’s important to clear your chimney of all the flammable creosote deposits every year, having your dryer vent cleaned is another annual necessity. Taking the preventive measures and scheduling these services not only improve appliance performance and increase their lifespan, but ensures your family and home stay safe as well.

To learn more about our dryer vent cleaning services or why it’s so important to stay on top of, get in touch with someone from our team. You can reach us online through our website, or by phone at 843-595-4927.
