Repairs:
No job is too small. We can do needed repairs, such as re-pointing the fire box mortar joints, completely rebuilding the fire box, (see picture to left) or rebuilding large sections of chimney having severe water damage. If you notice gaps, cracks, loose brick or other damage to your fireplace or chimney, call AAA Chimney Service for a professional estimate! 

We use new firebricks as needed  and high temp mortar with fireclay for added durability. 


Waterproofing:
Have you ever noticed white powdery material on the outside of your chimney? This is caused by water penetrating the brick. The white powder is lime and salts in the mortar being pushed out by pressure and water vapor evaporation out of the chimney. We have found the best products to help prevent this problem.
This material is far superior to similar items you find at Lowes or HomeDepot. Most products you buy in the local home store's are sealers, this is not what you want to put on brick chimneys. Water vapor must be able to pass through the brick for the structure to dry. Some treatments can actually cause more damage to your chimney, however what we use is specifically suited for masonry chimneys. It creates a bond to the brick and helps prevent water from entering the pores of the brick by creating an invisible shield of the surface while allowing water vapor to escape through the bricks pores.


Chase Cover/Pre-fab Top Repair:
Do you have rust stains on the chimney from the chase cover. We can remove the old rusty and sometime leaking top replacing with a new stainless steel or other material  top that will last a life time and add peace of mind for you.

Safety Inspections

Until recently, the scope of work performed in the inspection or evaluation of a fireplace, stove or other venting system was generally up to the discretion of the chimney service technician. Professional service technicians now have an industry standard that removes much of that "discretion". The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has addressed the minimum chimney standards in its latest publication (NFPA-211) concerning home heating appliances.

Inspections are now classified as;
Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3.

Below is an explanation of the three levels of inspection as provided by the Chimney Safety Institute of America and the National Fire Protection Association.

Level 1 Inspections

In a Level 1 inspection, your chimney service technician should examine the readily accessible portions of the chimney exterior, interior and accessible portions of the appliance and the chimney connection. Your technician will be looking for the basic soundness of the chimney structure and flue as well as the basic appliance installation and connections. The technician will also verify the chimney is free of obstruction and deposits.

Level 3 Inspections

When a Level 1 or a Level 2 inspections suggests a hidden hazard and the evaluation cannot be performed without special tools to access concealed areas of the chimney or flue, a Level 3 inspection is recommended. A Level 3 inspection addresses the proper construction and condition of concealed portions of the chimney structure and the flue. Removal or destruction, as necessary, of permanently attached portions of the chimney or building structure will be required for the completion of a Level 2 inspection.

A Level 3 inspection includes all the areas and items checked in a Level 1 and a Level 2 inspection, as well as the removal of certain components of the building or chimney where necessary. Removal of components (i.e. chimney crown, interior chimney wall) shall be required only when necessary to gain access to areas that are the subject of the inspection. When serious hazards are suspected, a Level 3 inspection may well be required to determine the condition of the chimney system.
