Mount Airy, MD, Chimney Inspections
Professional chimney inspections safeguard your chimney by determining the cause of problems and getting them fixed fast. There are three recognized levels of chimney inspection.
A Level 1 inspection covers visible areas of the chimney and its components.
Level 2 inspections are called for following a chimney fire, when the home is being sold and when a new appliance is being hooked up to the chimney.
Level 3 inspections are performed when known significant damage exists within the chimney system.

Chimney Masonry – Seal-Coating & Tuckpointing
Damage to chimney masonry isn’t a huge problem if it’s caught early. If sections of bricks have fallen from the structure, a process known as tuckpointing refills open areas with a strong compound to restore safety to your chimney. When cracks are developing in the bricks and mortar, a waterproof coating can prevent serious water damage and prolong the life of your chimney.
We’re ready and able to handle any chimney masonry repair work at your Mount Airy home and exceed your expectations every time.
Chimney Rebuilding Services
When chimneys pass a certain age, they’re prone to decay and decomposition. If your chimney is beginning to lean to the side or if large sections of brick and mortar are missing, our certified chimney technicians can partially or completely rebuild your chimney and make it safe to operate and live around. Count on Maryland’s chimney experts for superior service and unmatched workmanship.
