Chimney Cleaning Services
Chimney cleaning is very important for home owners that have a chimney in use. Regular chimney cleanings help prevent the build up of Creosote. Creosote is a huge fire hazard and it can be very damaging to your chimney or flue. Ultimately, regular chimney cleanings will prevent fires and costly repairs in the future.
Our fireplace and chimney inspection services are the most important job we do for our customers.

Chimney Liner Installation, Repair, or Replacement
Chimney Liners are installed to ensure that the home and homeowners are protected from the gases produced by fires. Often times the chimneys in older homes are either not up to code or have holes and cracks inside the chimney or flue. These cracks or holes allow dangerous gases to enter the home. Complete Chimney can inspect your chimney to determine if you need a liner and install the proper liner to prevent dangerous gases from entering your home.
Repair Leaky Chimney Flashing
The flashing sits in between the chimney and roof, it acts as a barrier for moisture, so that moisture can’t seep in and cause damage to the roof. The flashing can also be used to seal the top of the chimney. If the flashing is not repaired, water leaks from the roof can cause alot of damage to the home.
Masonry / Brick Repairs
Over time, the mortar in between the brick starts to break down and fall apart, this causes the bricks to become loose and structurally unsafe. Complete Chimney will rebuild the chimney or repair the necessary areas to bring the chimney back to new condition.
Chimney Crown Repair
The crown lies at the top of the chimney, it seals the top, to keep weather and debris out of the structure. Over time, the crown will begin to crack and fall apart, causing moisture and other debris to seep in. Complete Chimney will remove the old crown and rebuild a new one, using proper construction methods, to ensure long life for the new crown.
Chimney caps are put on top of the chimney to keep moisture and animals out of the interior of the Chimney or Flue. The cap keeps out small animals and prevents sparks from escaping the chimney. Our caps are made of high quality stainless steel and are durable enough to withstand the brutal weather in New York.
The purpose of a chimney damper is to seal the fireplace when not in use and keep heat in your home instead of escaping through the chimney.
Let Complete Chimney create a more energy-efficient chimney by installing a damper.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Often times dryer vents are installed incorrectly or with the wrong materials. Complete Chimney technicians can repair or replace the dryer vent so that it matches proper specifications. Not only will this help your dryer run more efficiently but it will also drastically reduce the fire risk associated with dryer vents. Complete Chimney can also install a brand new dryer vent when a current one does not exist.

Chimneys are a prime location for all kinds of animals, such as: squirrels, raccoons, and birds. The mess that these critters leave behind can cause a lot of unnecessary problems for your family. Complete Chimney technicians can remove any debris left behind from animals, as well as future proof the chimney, so that animals may not enter ever again.
