Multi-Level Chimney Safety Inspections

Neglecting to prevent the buildup of creosote in your chimney can pose a fire hazard. This is precisely why the National Fire Protection Association advocates for regular maintenance of chimneys, fireplaces, and frequently used vents. This maintenance regimen includes:
  • An annual inspection to guarantee clear and unobstructed ventilation paths, free from harmful deposits and blockages.
  • Adherence to clearance requirements.
  • Verification of the structural integrity of the chimney.
The Priddy’s Chimney team consists of experienced and certified professionals dedicated to conducting a thorough inspection of your fireplace or appliance flue. In the event that blockages or significant soot deposits are identified within your chimney flue, our proficient sweeps are equipped with the essential tools and training to clear the flue, ensuring a secure and unobstructed ventilation path for your appliance or fireplace.

Customer Reviews of our Chimney Sweep Services

I recently had to get my chimney inspected. I contacted Priddy Chimney Solutions and made an appointment. I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly they could fit me in. The technician, Ariel Whitman, arrived on time. He was very pleasant and well mannered. Ariel and his assistant made sure their shoes were covered prior to entering my home and they ensured that my carpet was covered prior to beginning their work. They worked very efficiently cleaning and examining my chimney both in my home and up on the roof. Once they completed their work, Ariel came back to the door and showed me pictures of the inside of my chimney and made recommendations about how I should proceed. Ariel took the time to answer all of my questions and made a note to put me on an annual inspection schedule. My overall experience with Ariel and Priddy Chimney Solutions was fantastic and I am looking forward to using my fireplace this season with the knowledge and peace of mind that my family and I will be safe doing so. I highly recommend this company.

I recently used Priddy Chimney Sweeps to reline two chimneys in my house. The techs who came were extremely nice, respectful of my house, earnest in their work ethic, politely answered all my questions and generally just nice people. They came on time, worked hard all day and cleaned up afterwards like they were never here. I am actually calling them back one month later to request more work with a smile on my face.

We Take Pride in Our Chimney Repair & Rebuild Services

Many chimneys are constructed with layers of terra cotta clay tiles, extending from the foundation to the pinnacle of the chimney.

Over time, these clay tiles experience deterioration due to the acidic nature of vented gases, intense heat, moisture absorption from rain and snow, and the shifting and settling of the house and foundation.

As these tiles weaken, they may spall, crack, and split, reaching a point where they can no longer effectively contain the gases and flammable byproducts of combustion that they are designed to vent.

Worker Tuck Pointing and Repairing

Quality Tuckpointing & Fireplace Mortar Repair

Tuckpointing is a method that utilizes two different mortar colors to fill the joints in brickwork. One of the tuckpointing colors is carefully crafted to closely resemble the bricks, ensuring a smooth integration and a visually pleasing effect. The second color is intentionally chosen to provide a noticeable contrast, specifically for the visible mortar joints. By strategically positioning the second color between the brick-colored mortars, an optical illusion is created, making the joints appear exceptionally thin. This imparts a refined aesthetic, diverging from a thicker and more pronounced appearance.

Fireplace Design & Build

A fireplace possesses the ability to define the aesthetic and style of an entire room, serving as a captivating focal point. The incorporation of rough brick or stone can evoke a rustic ambiance, while the sleekness of smooth tile introduces a modern touch.
