Midlothian VA Chimney Sweeps
All of our chimney sweeps at Chimney Saver Solutions are trained and certified. We have certifications with the National Fireplace Institute, the Chimney Safety Institute of America, and more. Our chimney sweeps provide chimney inspections that meet standards and guidelines provided by the National Fire Protection Association. Your family’s safety is what we have in mind when we perform our many services, such as chimney cleaning, which removes highly flammable creosote from your chimney flue.
Chimney Saver Solutions service trucks frequently travel to Midlothian VA and throughout the Greater Richmond area to provide chimney repairs. Fireplaces, wood stoves, and furnaces last only so long, and maintenance helps to keep them in good operating condition longer. The need for repairs isn’t always obvious, which is another important reason annual chimney inspections are so important. We provide every type of chimney repair that may be needed, such as chimney lining repair and replacement, masonry repair and rebuild, and repairs for damage caused by moisture.
Our technicians always provide honest recommendations, and we never recommend chimney work that’s unnecessary.
Oftentimes our customers are unsure about the condition of their chimney liner. A chimney inspection can reveal whether the liner is in a state of good repair. If there is deterioration, such as a cracked clay liner, we recommend that our customers have a stainless steel liner installed. Because liners protect homes from potential house fires, you can gain confidence in the safety of using your fireplace or stove when a steel chimney liner is installed. The performance of your chimney is also usually improved, creating increased heating efficiency in your fireplace, insert, or wood stove.
When our chimney experts visit homes in Midlothian VA and surrounding cities to perform a chimney inspection, the chimney crown is always checked. Chimney crowns are at the top of chimneys and provide protection from moisture.
When chimney crowns deteriorate, however, the chimney system is at risk of being seriously damaged. Waterproofing is an added way to provide protection from the harmful effects of moisture in your chimney system.
Chimney Caps & Chase Tops
Our chimney experts are always glad to install chimney caps for homeowners who don’t have them or for those who need a replacement chimney cap. These protective coverings keep out rain, snow, sleet, animals, birds, and debris. They are available in a variety of materials, including stainless steel and galvanized steel. Copper chimney caps are more expensive but also provide more visual appeal to a chimney. Additional benefits of chase tops and chimney caps are that they reduce wind-induced downdrafts and prevent sparks from exiting the chimney and igniting nearby materials.
Chimney Rebuilding & Restoration
There are many beautiful older homes in Midlothian VA and surrounding cities, and at some point the masonry on chimneys and fireplaces needs to be restored or rebuilt. When mortar begins to deteriorate, it can sometimes be scraped out and repointing between the bricks can restore the structure. It is essential to entrust chimney rebuilding and chimney restoration to trained experts such as our technicians at Chimney Saver Solutions. Because our professionals understand the chimney system from top to bottom, their work provides optimal results that you can trust.
Water damage can occur in your home as a result of a leaky chimney, but evidence that your chimney is leaking is not always obvious. Hidden, costly damage often occurs in homes before a moisture problem in detected. We recommend that you schedule a chimney inspection now so that any issues that may exist can be detected and repaired. The longer it takes to address a leaky chimney, the more costly the damage.
Fireplace Insert Installation
Many homeowners in Midlothian VA have opted to upgrade their fireplaces with a wood, gas, or pellet insert. Instead of continuing to lose 90% of the heat up the chimney, you can enjoy 70% efficiency or more with the addition of a custom fit fireplace insert. Our skilled chimney experts have sold and installed many gas, wood, and pellet inserts in and around Midlothian VA.
Chimney Saver Solutions has sold and installed modern stoves throughout the Midlothian VA area. You can choose wood, gas, or pellet fuel and offset heating costs, to realize significant savings in winter. We will be glad to meet with you, assess your needs, and provide suggestions for the size and type of stove that may be best for your home and lifestyle. We leave the style choice to you, and there are many to choose from.
