All of the chimney sweeps providing chimney cleaning, chimney inspection, and the full range of chimney services at Chimney Saver Solutions are trained and certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America.

The safety of our clients and their families is our chief concern in every aspect of our work.
When homeowners in Short Pump VA need chimney repairs and call on our experts at Chimney Saver Solutions, they know they are getting reliable help for chimney repair and maintenance. Chimney repairs frequently needed include liner repair and replacement, fixing leak chimneys, and repairing and rebuilding damaged masonry. Our recommendations are reliable and honest, and we never advise homeowners to have chimney work done unless it’s needed.
Damage to chimney liners often goes undetected until cameras used during a chimney inspection show that deterioration has occurred. The chimney liner must be in good condition; otherwise, there is the threat of a hazardous house fire and toxic gases such as carbon monoxide could enter your home. We recommend replacing a damaged chimney flue with a stainless steel liner. When a fireplace insert is installed, a new liner is usually recommended. A greater amount of heat is produced in the closed system, and stainless steel liners can withstand the added heat.
When our chimney experts conduct a chimney inspection in Short Pump VA and the entire area, the chimney crown is one of the components that is carefully checked. When chimney crowns begin to crack, moisture can get into the chimney system and cause extensive damage that is costly to repair.
We provide chimney crown repair and often recommend waterproofing, as an additional protection from moisture damage.
Chimney Caps & Chase Tops
Rain, sleet, snow, animals, debris, and birds can all get into your chimney unless you have a chimney cap or chimney chase top installed. These accessories are important enough that they should be standard equipment on a chimney. Additional benefits include a spark guard to arrest hot embers that could otherwise ignite nearby combustibles and preventing downdrafts.
Chimney Rebuilding & Restoration
Our expert chimney sweeps also visit Short Pump VA for chimney restoration and chimney rebuilding. If damage is caught early on, less drastic measures are required. For instance, if mortar is weakening, it can be scraped out and replaced in a procedure called tuckpointing, which provides new structural strength and durability. It’s best to entrust masonry repair and rebuild to chimney experts because they know how the entire venting system works and will produce the best results.
Leaky chimneys are common problems that homeowners in Short Pump VA and the entire area experience.
There are many different causes of moisture in the chimney system, and many times it isn’t obvious that anything troublesome is occurring until the unseen damage has caused the need for extensive repairs. With routine chimney inspections, you may be able to catch a chimney leak before significant damage occurs.
