We regularly inspect chimneys in the greater Salida CO area and know how to spot trouble right away. We use a three-level inspection, including a video inspection of the interior of your chimney. If we find any damage to your chimney in the course of the inspection, we can fix the issue.
Our chimney sweeps are CSIA certified, so they know how to ensure that every inch of your chimney is clean and free of obstructions.
If we inspect your chimney and any issues are discovered, chimney specialists will repair or replace the affected components of your fireplace. Some problems we see in chimneys that require repair are worn mortar, damaged or missing bricks, flue caps, chimney caps, and chase tops, and more. Repairs made by our chimney specialist are high quality and long-lasting. You won't have to worry about having the same repair done over and over when FlameMaster does the work.
One of the biggest enemies of your chimney and fireplace is water. Water has carved out valleys and dissolved rocks, so it's no surprise a leak in your chimney can wreak havoc on your whole chimney and fireplace. Cracks in the crown and mortar let water inside the structure of your chimney, which can expand and contract during the freeze-thaw cycle. Along with damage from the sun, your chimney can become like a sponge and let moisture infiltrate it and the fireplace. FlameMaster is adept at locating and repairing leaks before they become a more significant issue.
Chimney caps, flue caps, and chase tops are different items, but all three have one thing in common, sealing out unwanted things in your fireplace's chimney. Without a chimney cap, flue cap, or chase top, rain would fall straight down your chimney. A bird, mouse, or squirrel seeking warmth or shelter from rain could climb inside your chimney if one of the covers is damaged or missing. High winds, falling tree limbs, and large hail have all been known to damage chimney caps, flue caps, and chase tops. We can repair or replace any of the damaged coverings.
Is your chimney liner in good shape? Don't know the answer? We will inspect your chimney's liner to see if it's intact. If your chimney liner has seen better days, we can replace it using a stainless steel chimney liner or a FireGuard refractory mortar poured in place solution to protect your chimney's structure and your home from high heat and flames.
