Chimney Cleaning & Our Special 21 Point Safety Inspection: Our Certified Chimney Sweeps use state-of-the-art equipment to inspect and sweep your chimneys, including wood, and gas-burning chimneys. While cleaning your system, we ensure that it’s in good working order. We look for any problems that could prevent peak performance and recommend what is needed for your system to burn cleanly and safely. Furnace/ Hot water tank cleaned & inspected, Carbon Monoxide is "The Silent Killer" Leaves, bird nests or debris can block your furnace/hot water tank flue and prevent it from venting properly.If your chimney is blocked, Carbon Monoxide may seep into your home unnoticed. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to those of the flu: headaches, fatigue and nausea. If undetected, this odorless, colorless gas can be fatal. Repair & Restoration: We offer the full range of repairs to chimney systems, from repairing flashing leaks to chimney/firebox tuck pointing and masonry repair. Crown Repairs: Improperly built crowns are another common problem, usually cracked or poorly constructed—allowing water penetration and creating more damage on your chimney.. Chimney Caps: The best way to prevent moisture from rain and snow, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap. Our high-quality stainless steel caps carry a lifetime warranty. Water Leaks: We Are The "Chimney Leak Experts" Remember Chimney leaks cause "DANGEROUS MOLD" Leaks, Leaksand more Dangerous Leaks … A Chimney Leak is the most frustrating & destructive problem chimney repair home owners encounter. We can fix these leaks. Smoking & Draft Problems: We offer effective solutions for fireplaces an woodstoves that cause smoke problems inside your home.
Chimney Dampers: We offer repair and replacement on dampers, both at the bottom of the chimney as well as top sealing dampers. Animal Removal:
We offer removal of birds, raccoons, and other animals from your chimney. Masonry Repairs, Tuck pointing and Rebuilding: Masonry repairs are necessary if you notice some loose bricks in your chimney. Repointing and rebuilding is not only done for aesthetic purposes, but also to make your chimney safer and stronger. Chimney Relining: Inside your chimney is a passage for flue gases, created by combustion, to exit your home. This passage is called a liner. However, some chimneys do not have a liner and flue gasses travel inside the bricks that make up the chimney. If there is no liner in your chimney or if any of the flue tiles become cracked or broken, we recommend installing a stainless steel chimney liner. Our liners are appropriate for furnace flues, fireplace flues, and have a lifetime warranty. Waterproofing: Without being protected all new and existing masonry chimneys are susceptible to water damage, even if repaired. Because chimneys project above the roof line, they are vulnerable to the elements. Water damage can be prevented

Chim Chimnee Master Masonry. You rely on your chimney to channel smoke up and out, but when the chimney's outside or inside walls crack, you may have serious problems. Mortar joints between stone or bricks are likely to flake, wash out or crack after 10 or 30 years of exposure.
What causes these cracks? The freeze-thaw action of colder climates is usually the culprit. Moisture can make its way into the masonry, damaging it and any attached object made of metal like a lightning rod or satellite dish.
The risk of damage to your chimney increases if you live in an historic home. Before the use of natural gas or oil for heat, coal was used. Chimneys built to accommodate the high heat of burning coal that powered boilers are oversized and too cool for oil or natural gas conditions. This kind of chimney can lead to greater risk of condensation and resulting damage. The topmost area of the interior walls of the chimney are the most vulnerable, as well as being the most difficult to notice unless you spend time on your roof. Unfortunately, neglect and lack of inspection often lead to the need for major repairs. Damaged chimneys can allow toxic gases such as carbon monoxide to leak into your house, creating a serious health hazard. Be sure to have your chimney checked every year for damage. We will scour the area for missing or loose flashing -- the metal sheeting that keeps watertight the place where the roof and chimney meet -- and any signs of damage to the masonry, especially cracking. Remember that serious problems need the attention of a professional; repairs should be done by an amateur. And, many communities require a permit for chimney work
A common maintenance task for brick masonry is the repair of mortar joints. The longevity of mortar joints will vary with the exposure conditions and the mortar materials used, but a lifespan of more than 45 years is typical. The longevity of brick, however, may well exceed 100 years. Consequently, occasional repair of the mortar joints is expected over the life of the brick masonry. Here at Cerrito Chimney & Master Masonry it is our observation that the most common reason for repointing brick masonry is to improve water penetration resistance. Repointing deteriorated mortar joints is one of the most effective and permanent ways of decreasing water entry into brickwork. This is because the most common means of water entry into a brick masonry wall is through debonded, cracked or deteriorated mortar joints
Sweep Cleaning/Inspecting Fire Box
Chimney Cleaning How Do We Do It? Typically, we will begin with a physical inspection of your fireplace or wood stove, the chimney or flue pipe, the spark arrestor and any other components of the system. If we see any problems, we will make specific suggestions for repair, or we may recommend any necessary repairs.
Next we will cover the interior portion of the fireplace with plastic & a drop cloth as necessary to contain any soot and dust that's created during the cleaning process.
We will then head up onto the roof and, using a combination of long poles, brushes and scrapers, proceed to thoroughly brush and clean the insides of the chimney.
As the brushing progresses, the hardened material from the chimney breaks off and falls to the bottom.
As the final step in the cleaning, the chimney sweep will usually clean out the inside of the fireplace to remove the dislodged debris, then vacuum up any dust or soot
We Will Clean the Flu from top to bottom, the Smokeshelf the Damper, and the Firebox, we check the Condition of the Flu for Cracks the Crown for Cracks, and the Bricks & Mortar for Deterioration ... We Check the Firebox for Dangerous Cracks, that can cause Chimney Fires and Make Sure Your Chimney is "Safe for Burning"..... And We "Never Make A Mess!!!
NOTE: Chimney cleaning is not a technically difficult task, but it can be physically tiring and even dangerous – tall chimneys, long ladders, steep roofs and icy fall and winter conditions can make for a hazardous combination. .

A chimney crown prevents water from seeping into the masonry below. Water damaged or cracked chimney crowns can lead to costly chimney repairs. Chimneys require special attention to prevent costly damage, which results from water prevention. Chimneys that project above the roofline and are highly vulnerable to the elements. A complete chimney protection program should include repairing the crown with Crown Coat, as well as a treatment with ChimneySaver, a 100% * siloxane based water repellent. Flue tiles should have a chimney cap to help prevent water damage to chimney interiors. Attention should also be given to the flashing around the base of the chimney and all visible points of water entry should be repaired. Maintenance of a chimney exterior is critical to the long term safety and performance of masonry chimneys. Crown Coat 15 Year Warranty SaverSystems, the manufacturer of Chimney Saver products, warrants that Crown Coat Brushable Sealant, when used to coat or repair masonry chimney crowns, will remain intact and in place for 15 years from the date of application to an residential chimney crown according to label instructions when properly applied by a professional contractor. This warranty does not cover spalling, abrading, faulty construction and/or other defects which might erode coated surfaces.
