Dangers of a Damaged Chimney
Your chimney is a ventilation system that expels hot flue gases, safeguarding your home. Damaged chimneys can lead to serious issues like:
- Water intrusion
- Structural damage
- Flue fires

It is crucial that your chimney is fully-functioning and efficient. To prevent chimney damage, you need to properly maintain and urgently repair any damage. Our most popular chimney services include:
- Chimney Sweep: Creosote is a highly flammable byproduct that builds up in your chimney flue over time. When creosote builds up, it can ignite and cause a flue fire. An annual chimney sweep is critical for removing built-up creosote, as well as animal infestation or structural damage.
- Chimney Liners: The chimney liner ventilates combustion byproducts and protects your chimney walls from heat and corrosion. Traditional clay flue liners are not as efficient or long-lasting as a stainless steel flex liner. Deterioration of these ceramic tiles leads to serious problems like draft issues, condensation, and carbon monoxide hazards. Replacing your current liner with a stainless steel flex liner prevents these problems and efficiently ventilates combustion byproducts.
- Restoration: Our chimney technicians perform a complete assessment of your chimney and recommend the most effective plan for restoration. Our attentive masons seamlessly integrate restoration work with your chimney’s existing design.
- Inspection: Yearly inspections ensure your chimney is in working order and catch any signs of damage before they become catastrophic.
- Rebuild: When your chimney is beyond repair, we will rebuild your chimney and restore it to its former glory. We consult you at every stage of the redesign and rebuild process to ensure your new chimney aligns with your vision.
- Installation: If you are looking to add a wood-burning fire to your home, you will need a fully functional chimney. Our expert craftsmen offer full chimney installation services for new construction in the Nashville area.
