Certified Chimney Services
Well-maintained fireplaces and chimneys can bring decade upon decade of warmth and togetherness to a family. Poorly maintained chimneys, however, become at best, an eyesore, at worst, a genuine danger to the home and the people who live in it.
When you enjoy a fire, combustion creates an array of dangerous byproducts — toxic gases, flammable debris, high heat — and the chimney’s job is to contain and remove, and protect adjacent materials from, these byproducts. The chimney system, however, is getting bombarded constantly by the harshest conditions — rain and snow outside, intense heat inside — and that can and will take its toll.
Having your chimney system inspected and maintained by a certified, professional company like Blue Ridge Chimney Services will ensure that everything is functioning properly and safely, and that small problems are caught and addressed. If you need anything –from an annual chimney sweeping to a full chimney rebuild — and are located in the Shenandoah Valley area, Blue Ridge Chimney Services would love to help.
Some Of The Chimney Services We Provide
Chimney Cleaning & Sweeping
Everyone from the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends a proper, professional chimney sweeping once a year to ensure that any creosote or other dangerous debris is removed. Our CSIA-certified technicians can thoroughly and safely sweep your chimney. If your brick or stone fireplace has lost some of its luster, we also provide Paint “N” Peel Fireplace Cleaner services.

If the need for repairs comes up, our experienced technicians can take the headache out of the entire process. Whether you need us to replace a chase cover, reline your flue or troubleshoot complex problems (we’ll get to the bottom of that smoky or smelly chimney), we have the skills, experience, and quality products to help. Blue Ridge Chimney Services technicians are also specialists when it comes to insurance claims — if you’ve experienced damage due to a “sudden occurrence” (like a chimney fire or major weather incident), we can help walk you through the process of filing a claim, all the way from providing proper documentation to making the necessary repairs.

Chimney leaks are dreaded, and for good reason. But Blue Ridge Chimney Services aims to quickly and thoroughly address any water problems you may be having. We can find and fix the source of a leak (from chimney crown cracks to damaged flashing), and apply a waterproofing sealant that can help stave off future leaks and dramatically extend the life of your chimney.

Brick and mortar makes for strong buildings and strong chimneys, but over time, it is expected that some maintenance or repairs may be needed. Blue Ridge Chimney Services can handle any kind of masonry work, from rebuilding the firebox in your fireplace and tuckpointing work on your chimney, to full chimney and fireplace rebuilds. Talk to our technicians about what you need and want, and we’ll make it happen.
Chimney Caps & Dampers
Chimney caps and dampers add a lot of protection to your chimney system. Chimney caps help to keep rain and snow out, and dampers help to reduce your energy costs. If your cap or damper is damaged or missing, replacement can drastically improve your system’s safety and efficiency.
