Homeowners in Coronado, CA, trust Chimney Sweeps Inc. to provide the services that keep their chimneys safe and running as they should.
Here are some of the ways we can help you if you live in Coronado or other parts of San Diego County.
Expert Chimney Sweep
Chimney sweep services are important for two main reasons:
- To remove creosote from the chimney flue
- To remove debris and drafting obstructions from the flue
Our trained chimney sweeps use specialized tools to remove all forms of flammable creosote. This substance is the #1 cause of chimney fires in the U.S. each year.
We also remove animal nests, leaves, twigs and other debris. All this material can narrow the flue and send smoke and dangerous carbon monoxide into your Coronado home.
Chimney Inspections in Coronado
All fireplace users are wise to schedule annual chimney inspections. The Chimney Sweeps Inc. technicians understand all types of chimney and fireplace systems and are trained to spot early signs of trouble.
During a basic inspection, we look over the chimney structure, the masonry, the chimney crown and all other readily accessible parts of your chimney. Our inspectors are qualified to perform more involved inspections when circumstances require it.
Common Chimney Problems
As a chimney ages, all sorts of problems might creep up. We know how to address and resolve every one of them.
- Decayed bricks and mortar
- Leaky chimneys and water damage
- Smoke backups
- Chimney odors in the home
- Animals inside the flue
- Efflorescence (white stains) on the sides of the chimney
- Rusty chimneys and damaged components
We offer a full menu of standard and emergency chimney repairs. All our work is done by us – nothing is ever subcontracted. We make sure our repair projects comply with state and local Coronado codes.
Chimney relining: We use Thermocrete to repair breaks and irregularities in the surfaces of chimney liners. This reduces the risk of flames and toxic gases escaping.
Chimney crown repair: Our repair crew uses CrownSeal for minor crown damage. We can rebuild the crown if damage is significant.
Tuckpointing: This process removes crumbling masonry mortar and replaces it with a strong, new mortar compound.
Smoke chamber parging: We use the Smoktite process to smooth out the surfaces of smoke chambers and seal off holes and gaps.
Brick replacement: We replace bricks that have been damaged by weather, water leaks, seismic events or old age.
Chimney rebuilding: For severely damaged chimneys, we provide rebuilding services. We can rebuild parts of the chimney or everything from the roof up.
Firebox rebuilding: We can either repair or replace your firebox’s refractory panels, which protect adjacent areas of the home. We also repair or rebuild brick work.
