When it Comes to Chimney Repairs, Our Expert Chimney Sweeps Offer a Higher Quality of Service Every Time

If chimney repairs are completed incorrectly or if the team of hired sweeps rushes the job and tries to cut corners or take shortcuts, it’s basically like the homeowner is flushing money down the drain.

Chimney repairs are not something to take lightly, and even the smallest flaw or tiniest mishap can lead to a lot of problems for the owner of the system. Unfortunately, this is an all-too-common occurrence.

From time to time, we come across customers who hoped to save money by going with the best deal, only to find out later that they now need to shell out hundreds (sometimes thousands) of dollars for repairs and maintenance that was simply missed or done incorrectly.

Because of scenarios like these, we urge all of our customers throughout Southern Maryland to hire a trustworthy and reputable company from the very beginning — and stick with them all the way through.

For folks living in the counties of Cumberland, Sagadahoc, and parts of Oxford County, the CSIA-certified team of sweeps here at Brickliners Custom Masonry & Chimney Services is here for you through it all.

As certified sweeps, we specialize in a whole host of chimney repairs. How can we help you?

Repointing is a service that restores your crumbling masonry, guaranteeing a stronger, longer-lasting, and better-looking chimney at the end of it all. Investing in repointing is a great way to both reinforce the strength of your system and improve its aesthetic appeal all in one shot.

Chimney Liners & Relining

A chimney liner plays a few major roles in keeping fireplaces functioning safely and efficiently, so if yours needs some attention, you won’t want to put off professional relining. There are multiple options for new liners, but we recommend stainless steel. These are the longest lasting and they are safe for use with any fuel type.

Of course, if you have a clay or tile liner that needs some repair work, HeatShield® may be a great option for you. This resurfacing option allows us to restore your liner without replacing it altogether. We’d be happy to work with you to see which services would best suit your needs.

Leaky Chimneys

Is there water inside of your fireplace? Has your brickwork and mortar been showing signs of decay and deterioration? Are you noticing rotting, rusting, or maybe even mold accumulation near your chimney? These are all signs of water damage from a chimney leak, and they’re not just a threat to the look of your chimney and home. They can also lead to a host of other problems — including house fires.

Keep leaks at bay by investing in chimney waterproofing/water repellent. Working with an expert to get these services completed guarantees years of protection, keeping your structure safe and sound for the long haul.

Another important step in keeping your system safe from water-related damage (as well as animal entry, debris build-up, downdrafts, and more) is purchasing a well-functioning chimney cap.

If your cap is missing or damaged, then it is vital that you get in touch with a sweep that can install a new one as soon as possible. This is a fairly quick and inexpensive way to safeguard your chimney against leaks and damage.

Chimney repairs are never something to delay. Doing so will only cause the problem to worsen — and the more wear and tear your system experiences, the more prone you’ll be to experiencing greater damage, such as a settlement or collapse.
