Maintenance & Repair
We offer interior and exterior comprehensive cleanings. Each chimney sweep includes a visual inspection to ensure the safety and efficiency of your chimney. You will be provided with a checklist of items with comments and recommendations when necessary.
We keep your home clean! Drop cloths and runners are used to protect your floor. Our strong vacuum keeps dust out of the air. Our equipment is specialized to various heating appliances: wood stoves, pellet stoves, furnaces and fireplace inserts.
Creosote is the tar-like residue that is highly combustible and the cause behind most chimney fires. The better the combustion within your fireplace the less creosote will occur. Chimneys that are unlined are more prone to creosote build-up. A cold flue, restricted air supply or burning wet or unseasoned wood will also increase the creation of creosote. In some cases, a chemical treatment will be necessary to convert the creosote and remove it from your flue without damaging the walls.
Damaged chimneys don't just look bad, they are dangerous to your home's structural integrity. Montreal's cold winters and temperature swings can accelerate the damage and cause bricks to come loose and allow water to seep in your walls. We can fix minor masonry issues and extend the life of your roof and chimney while matching colors to keep it looking good.

These are designed to keep pesky animals or birds, as well as leafs, water and the occasional downdraft from entering your chimney. Rain will cause unpleasant odors, deteriorate the flue walls and cause rust damage to the internal parts of the fireplace. When combined to soot, water forms sulfuric acid which is can also be quite destructive. In the winter, moisture freezes and expands inside fissures and creates cracks which grow bigger every year. Chimney caps can also prevent chimney fires from spreading to your roof.
They come in all shapes and sizes! Call us today for more information. Ask us about the Lock-Top cap which saves you money on heating bills by forming an air-tight seal at the top of your chimney when it is not in use.
A liner is required in every chimney. Whether your chimney is unlined or your old liner made out of terracotta, clay or other is damaged, we can install a lifetime guarateed stainless steel liner that will increase efficiency and keep your home safe.
Flashing, Crown, Metalwork & Waterproofing
Proper flashing and metalwork will direct water away from the masonry and prevent moisture from entering thus protecting your chimney and walls. We will take measurements and prepare a perfect fit for your chimney that will last a lifetime.
