With the long, bitterly cold winters we experience in Bethesda, MD, and around the DC area, many folks use their wood-burning fireplaces and stoves daily.
However, without regular chimney sweeping and professional cleaning, the accumulation of creosote deposits in the flue increases the chance of a fire and exposure to poisonous carbon monoxide fumes. Also, small birds like blue jays, cardinals, and other wildlife such as bats, squirrels, and raccoons are commonly found in chimneys during the winter.
The leave, twigs, and debris that blow across the roof can block the flue vent, causing smoke, soot, and other harmful contaminants to fill the air in your living room.
Our Certified Chimney Professionals® have the professional tools, equipment, and supplies, to thoroughly clean your chimney and remove any animals in the chimney too.
Is your chimney, fireplace, or heating stove structurally sound and safe to operate this winter? There is only one way to know for sure, and that is with a chimney inspection conducted by a Certified Chimney Sweep®. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and local fire safety experts encourage homeowners with wood or fossil fuel heating appliances to have an annual chimney inspection, even if they no longer use the heating appliance. Bethesda Chimney is CSIA certified for all three inspection levels throughout the Greater Washington DC Metro area.
Bethesda Chimney of DC has built a reputation for providing the best possible chimney repairs in the DC Capital area. We can fix any chimney problem, but some of the common repairs we perform include the following:
- Chimney liner repair or replacement
- Chimney chase top installation
- Chimney cap replacement
- Chimney flashing repair
- Fireplace damper repair
- Chimney Crown sealing and rebuilding
- Individual brick replacement
Your chimney should have a cap to prevent rain, snow, wind, pests, and debris from water damage and flue obstructions. Unfortunately, we have noticed that many vents in the DC area have a basic flue or chimney cap; some are even damaged or missing entirely! Bethesda Chimney of DC custom manufactures full-width chimney caps that offer enhanced protection than a standard flue cap, or off-the-shelf chimney cap doesn't provide. Measured precisely to fit the entire width of your chimney, our beautiful hip and ridge style cap will help prevent water damage to your flue, crown, and exterior sides. It also includes a substantial mesh wire screen for keeping out curious wildlife and debris.
When a masonry chimney suffers significant damage, it may need partial rebuilding to save the structure or complete rebuilding to prevent a collapse that can damage your home.
Our skilled masons are experts in partial and complete chimney rebuilding so you can enjoy your fireplace or heating stove in the winter and all year.
