We Offer a Long List of Chimney & Fireplace Services

Our list of chimney and fireplace services is exhaustive and include annual chimney inspections, gas fireplace servicing, regular chimney sweeping services, and a long list of chimney repairs.

We recommend booking chimney inspections and fireplace servicing appointments at least once per year, before the start of each burn season. Booking these spots in the spring or summer months can ensure ample time for repairs, and finding a convenient time slot will be easier, too, as we won’t be as busy.

About Our Chimney Repair Services

Know your fireplace and chimney aren’t working like they should, but aren’t sure wha fireplace or chimney repair service you might need? Your best bet is to book an inspection, so that our experts can take a look, then recommend appropriate solutions. Here’s all we have to offer:

  • Chimney Damper Repair: Chimney dampers help control airflow in a chimney. Damper repair involves fixing or replacing the piece to ensure proper function and allow for better control of draft – as well as effectively prevent heat loss when the fireplace is not in use.
  • Firebacks: Heavy metal plates placed at the back of fireplaces, firebacks are meant to absorb and then radiate heat back into the room. We’re here to ensure yours is properly installed and doing its job.
  • Masonry/Exterior Brick Repair: Masonry repairs and maintenance can involve repairing cracks, repointing mortar joints, and ensuring the structural integrity of the masonry to prevent water infiltration and damage, as well as ensure efficient functioning.
  • Firebox Repair: The firebox is the area inside the fireplace where the fire burns. Firebox repairs might involve fixing cracks, replacing damaged bricks, or repairing the firebrick lining to ensure safe and efficient operation of the fireplace.
  • Chimney Relining: Your chimney liner is in place to protect your home and chimney, as well as improve draft and overall efficiency. If your liner is in disrepair, we may need to provide resurfacing services or install a new liner altogether.
  • Smoke Chamber Parging: Smoke chamber parging involves applying a smooth coating of heat-resistant mortar to the smoke chamber walls. This process helps to improve the flow of smoke, enhance efficiency, and prevent the buildup of creosote.
  • Gas Fireplace Repair: Gas fireplace repair involves troubleshooting and fixing issues with gas-fueled fireplaces, such as problems with ignition, pilot lights, thermocouples, gas valves, or burner assemblies.
  • Gas Fireplace Blowers: Blowers are fans installed in fireplaces to improve heat circulation and distribution throughout the room. Blower repair may involve fixing motor issues, replacing worn-out components, or cleaning and maintaining the blower unit.
  • Chimney Leak Repair: Chimney leaks can cause a lot of damage, and there are lots of potential sources for them. Repair involves identifying the issue, then finding the most effective solution (repairing damaged flashing, sealing cracks in masonry, chimney cap installation, etc.).
  • Chimney Waterproofing: Waterproofing your masonry involves applying protective sealants or coatings that prevent water penetration. It’s important that these products are also vapor- permeable to ensure your chimney can breathe and vent.
  • Chimney Cap Repair: Chimney caps are protective covers installed on top of chimneys to prevent debris, animals, and water from entering the flue. Cap repair may involve replacing damaged caps or installing newer custom-made ones to ensure proper protection.
  • Chimney Crown Repair: The chimney crown is the concrete slab at the top of the chimney stack. Repairing the chimney crown typically involves fixing cracks, sealing gaps, and ensuring proper slope to prevent water from pooling.
  • Chimney Chase Covers: Chimney chase covers are metal covers installed over prefabricated chimney chases (and some masonry chimneys) to protect against water infiltration and animal entry. Repair involves replacing damaged covers or installing new ones, as needed.

I needed to reschedule my chimney cleaning and Beck’s was super accommodating. When they had another person cancel, they called me and were able to get me in much sooner than my rescheduled appointment.

The technician who came to our home was polite, friendly, and did an excellent job. Our fireplace is ready to go for the winter, and we couldn’t be more happy.

I’d highly recommend Beck’s.

How often should dryer vents be cleaned?

Dryer vents should be cleaned, at a minimum, every single year. That said, frequency may need to increase, depending on your unique situation. For instance, longer vents need more frequent cleanings, and households that put their dryer to more frequent use may require more cleanings as well.

We also urge homeowners to book their dryer vent cleaning if they notice any of the following signs:

  • your clothes are taking longer to dry than usual
  • you detect a burning smell when using the dryer
  • your dryer or laundry room seem hotter than is normal
  • you notice lint in and around the dryer
  • you notice excess moisture or mold growth near the dryer
