Our Services

The National Fire Protection Association recommends that homeowners have their chimney inspected at least once a year. A Traditional Sweep offers a full portfolio of chimney and venting system services. Whether it’s woodstoves, fireplaces, chimneys, or dryer vents, we understand the intricacies of the venting systems in your home. And we’re equipped to address all of your maintenance and safety needs.

Our services include:

Chimney Inspections & Sweeping

Our CSIA Certified Chimney Sweeps use state–of–the–art equipment to inspect and sweep 1st– and 2nd–story chimneys of all kinds, including oil–, wood–, and gas–burning chimneys. While sweeping your system, we ensure that it’s in working order. We look for any problems that could prevent peak performance and recommend what is needed for your system to burn cleanly and safely. When necessary, we use video inspection camera equipment to examine hidden parts of the flue.

Dryer Vent Inspections & Cleaning

In addition to servicing chimneys, we inspect and clean dryer vents in one– and two–story homes. A thorough sweep by one of our dryer exhaust technicians includes searching for any issues that might interfere with optimal operation. Highly effective diagnostic tools allow us to detect and resolve issues before they become problems.

Waterproofing/Repair & Restoration

We offer the full range of repairs to chimney systems, big and small—from repairing leaky flashing to tuckpointing and masonry repair to relining the flue and chimney rebuilding.

Rebuild Fireplaces or Chimneys

Often a fireplace and chimney will need to be rebuilt due to water damage to the masonry or other issues. We remedy this situation by reconstructing the firebox in fireplaces, returning them to their original pristine condition. We also provide full fireplace or chimney rebuilds or rebuilds from the roof line up.

Rebuild Crowns

Improperly built crowns are another common problem. If yours is cracked or poorly constructed—allowing water penetration or posing a fire hazard—we’ll build a proper concrete one.

Install Chimney Caps

The best way to prevent moisture from rain and snow, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap. Our high–quality stainless steel caps carry a lifetime warranty.

Replace Chase Tops

Leaky or damaged chase tops, and those made of masonry, are potential hazards on prefabricated metal fireplaces. We help eliminate problems before they start by replacing masonry and rusty metal chase tops.

Water Leak & Condensation Resolution & Repair

If water is damaging your fireplace inside or out, we’ll find and fix it—no matter the source.

Air Vent Problem Resolution

The quality of the air you breathe in your home is important, and we take it seriously. Our technicians have extensive knowledge about the entire venting system in your house, and we have the expertise to detect and resolve the full range of air vent issues.
