Chimney Rebuilding and fireplace restoration and repair is an occasional but necessary part of your home’s maintenance program.
When rebuilding your chimney becomes a necessity for safety (or other concerns), it can sound like an overwhelming project, to say the least. However, when you know the steps involved in this type of masonry construction project, you’ll find that chimney restoration is a satisfying and worthwhile home maintenance project.
Consider the rewarding benefits of a restored fireplace and chimney:
- Improved fireplace performance and safety.
- Stopping water leaks around the chimney.
- Less patching and spot repairs of a system
increases home value.
- Enjoy the lower maintenance requirements of a functional fireplace and chimney system.
What is chimney rebuilding, and why would you need it? We cover everything you need to know about chimney restoration and rebuilding, and more.
A characteristic problem of chimneys is they develop deposits of creosote on the walls of the structure when used with wood as a fuel. Deposits of this substance can interfere with the airflow and more importantly, they are combustible and can cause dangerous chimney fires if the deposits ignite in the chimney.
Newly constructed flues may feature a chase cover, a cap, and a spark arrestor at the top to keep small animals out and to prevent sparks from being broadcast into the atmosphere. All fireplaces require trained gas service members to carry out installations.
On the exterior there is often a corbelled brick crown, in which the projecting courses of brick act as a drip course to keep rainwater from running down the exterior walls. Spark arrestor is placed into the crown or cap.
Chimney's fireplace heat shields protect the rear firebricks and fireplace mortar of your firebox from needing fireplace chimney repairs. They prevent direct combustion heat expansion & contraction exposure, which greatly minimizes the expansion & contraction of firewall firebricks and fireplace mortar.

“Highly recommend Guardian Chimney Solutions - I called them on a Monday afternoon concerning a smell coming from my fireplace and they were here by Tuesday. As a new home owner, were knowledgeable and wonderful to deal with. They took the time to explain everything. Definitely will be using them if there are any other issues!.”
“Had raccoons in my chimney earlier this week (cute pictures attached!) and realized it was time to do something to keep them (and the bats we've previously had in our chimney) out! I called around for different estimates and checked all kinds of reviews online. Not only were Guardian's reviews the best out there but the estimate I received matched the best out of a number of other local companies. I called on Tuesday and they were out on Wednesday getting the job done. I was very impressed with the service and would happily recommend them to anyone and everyone! Thanks, and keep up the great work, Guardian Chimney Solutions!"
“Very responsive, timely, efficient, and expertly done. Worked hard and quietly the entire time they were on site. Finished ahead of schedule. Respectful and pleasant. If we have another chimney issue, these guys will be my only call.”
“We had our long-neglected chimney repaired from the roof line up to the top of the chimney. Guardian ground out the mortar around the entire chimney and rebuilt the top number of rows of brick with new brick and put a new cap on the top to replace the badly cracked cement cap that was there. The tuck-pointing that they performed on the chimney and another area above a door all looked well done. They completed the job in one day, in spite of a short downpour that halted their work. They cleaned up all evidence of their work afterwards and left our yard looking like they never were there. Joe, the owner, was a pleasure to work with. He did most of the brickwork himself and repaired a part of the chimney that was unexpectedly in bad condition without charge. He was clear in his communication with us in a written proposal and priced the job more reasonably than others. When rain was predicted on the original date of work he called and let us know he had to reschedule and rescheduled for the next day, showing up on time. He was trustworthy and very easy to work with. We would certainly recommend him to others for their chimney and brick work.”
“Showed up on time for both estimating and doing the work. Estimate was very clear and thorough. (And less expensive than the "other guy".) Work was done in a timely manner, everyone was polite, and they cleaned up afterwards. Every company should be this good. Kudos!.”
“Couldn’t recommend Joe and Guardian Chimney Solutions more if you need any repairs done to your chimney. Joe took time out of his already busy day to fit me in and repair damages on my chimney so that I was up to code before closing on my house. He was timely, personable, and best of all very skilled at what he does. All in all a great experience.”
“We were extremely pleased with our experience with Guardian Chimney Solutions. We had a fireplace liner installed last year and had it cleaned for the first time this summer. Both Joe and Derek were professional, friendly and and prompt. They answered all questions thoroughly and were easy to work with. We would highly recommend this company."
