The use of Heat Shield will save homeowners a lot of money. Heat Shield acts as a cement and repairs mortar joints while also filling in cracks and resurfacing the interior of the flue.

- Liner Repair – Chimney liners are extremely important as they keep flue gases out of your home. A strong liner also enhances the structural integrity of the chimney while improving safety and fuel efficiency. There are different types of liners and our technicians are skilled in repairing each variety, which includes stainless steel, aluminum, and terra cotta. Chimney liners are subject to deterioration, cracking or improper installation. When you suspect an issue with your chimney liner, contact All Out Chimney Sweep and we’ll send over a technician to inspect and assess the issue.

When a cap becomes compromised, it could provide a nesting place for animals and also allow moisture to get inside your chimney. That could lead to structural damage. Having a solid chimney cap is essentially a form of preventative maintenance. Our skilled technicians can scale your roof and ensure that your chimney cap is properly installed and repaired. This is something best left to the professionals and is not a repair that homeowners should try themselves.
