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 flammable and can cause dangerous chimney fires if the deposits ignite in the chimney.

Chimneys that burn natural gas drastically reduce the amount of creosote buildup due to natural gas burning much cleaner and more efficiently than traditional solid fuels. While in most cases there is no need to clean a gas chimney on an annual basis that does not mean that other parts of the chimney cannot fall into disrepair. Disconnected or loose chimney connections caused by rust and corrosion over time can pose serious dangers for residents due to leakage of carbon monoxide into the home. Thus, it is recommended β€” and in some countries even mandatory β€” that chimneys be inspected annually and cleaned on a regular basis to prevent these problems. The workers who perform this task are called chimney sweeps.

Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and loose masonry materials all present a threat to residents. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent damage, deterioration and future high-cost chimney repairs. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone together properly. Therefore, a stone chimney – just like a brick chimney – should be protected from the effects of water penetration. Click here to read more information about Water-proofing chimney.

When these masonry chimneys go bad (and they all go bad) the repair can be very expensive. Call up a chimney contractor to see what can be done about it.


Line chimneys with stainless steel or aluminum.
Liners made from aluminum or stainless steel are a relatively easy way of making unlined chimneys useable again. Aluminum can be used with some gas-burning appliances, but stainless steel is the right choice when wood or oil is the fuel.
Liners are either flexible or rigid, but in an old house whose chimneys take lots of twists and turns flexible pipe will be a lot easier to install. It’s pulled through the existing chimney to create an airtight (read that safe) passage for smoke and other exhaust gases.


Flashing refers to thin pieces of impervious material installed to prevent the passage of water into a structure from a joint or as part of a weather resistant barrier (WRB) system. The origin of flash and flashing are uncertain but these words are related to a pool of water and the word splash. Click here to read more about Chimney Flashings.

Repointing is the process of renewing the pointing (the external part of mortar joints) in masonry construction. Over time, weathering and decay cause voids in the joints between masonry units (usually bricks), allowing the undesirable entrance of water. Water entering through these voids can cause significant damage through frost weathering and from salt dissolution and deposition. Repointing is also called pointing, or pointing up, although these terms more properly refer to the finishing step in new construction. Click here to read more on chimney repointing.

Chimney capping is done on various types of chimneys to protect the inside of your chimney as well as the inside of your home from both weather damage (rain, snow, and wind), outdoor wildlife (birds, raccoons and pests).
Most chimneys will fall into one of two categories: A round chimney (this type can be either metal or masonry) and secondly, a square masonry chimney. These are further divided into three subcategories: Single flue chimneys with an extended flue. Single flue chimneys without an extended flue and Multi flue chimneys. The most common is the single flue with an extended flue.
