Masonry Chimney Repair / Rebuild

Does your fireplace emit a foul odor?

Does your fireplace or chimney smell like the drippings from your outdoor BBQ grill?

Is there a powdery white substance on the outside of your masonry chimney?

Looking up at the exterior of your chimney, are the bricks cracking?

Does your chimney leak?

Do you hear water dripping inside the chimney?

We can’t diagnose your chimney problems without coming out and taking a look for ourselves, but if you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, you should call a chimney sweep or a mason trained and certified in chimney repair to come out and inspect your chimney.

If you have an older home in the Chicagoland suburbs and the chimney has not been cared for in a while, there is a good chance that the elements of the seasons and seasonal weather changes have deteriorated the exposed part of the chimney walls, the chimney cap and/or the connections where the chimney and roof meet.

Some chimneys hold up for years, some do not last as long. Our very own Terry Dearborn, the longest continually Certified Chimney Sweep® in the U.S., can probably pinpoint the age or building style of your chimney as he drives into your subdivision or neighborhood in the western Chicago suburbs. He has inspected thousands of chimneys and been on thousands of roofs in the Chicago suburbs and he can hone in on the problem as soon as he arrives at your home.

Back To Services

“Fantastic service by Terry and his team. I have a wood burning/gas fireplace that needed cleaning and to check for animals that I had heard near the chimney. They did a thorough cleaning (and kept the house clean while doing it!) and found no evidence of animal activity. Terry showed me that the previous owners had tapped into the gas line incorrectly and had used copper pipe for the gas to the fireplace. They removed (at my request) all gas components and the fireplace is now safe and set for wood burning (I can have it changed back to gas in a safe manner later). I'm very grateful that they found and fixed the possibly dangerous situation and did a wonderful job on everything else. I highly recommend Valley Chimney!”
