CHIMNEY INSPECTION & REPAIR
At Mr. Chimney Cricket, we recommend an annual maintenance check for all fireplaces and wood stoves  especially before the winter season.

CHIMNEYS RELINED & REPAIRED
Chimneys that were built without flue liners according to NFPA 211 Code: Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Solid Fuel-Burning Appliances and local California Code must be lined for safety’s sake. Fitting a chimney with a properly chosen liner is most important. Chimneys often need to be resized to perform properly. Installing a lightweight, properly sized, UL listed metal chimney liner will help create safe, efficient and condensate free venting. Stainless steel corrugated and rigid liners are perfect for use when relining masonry flues venting oil, gas, coal and wood burning stoves. They should be installed in accordance with their listing and the CA Building Code.

REAL ESTATE CHIMNEY INSPECTION
Mr. Chimney Cricket is capable of doing chimney inspections for real estate transactions.  All fireplaces and chimneys should be inspected by a professional when you purchase a home or when you sell your home.

SPARK ARRESTERS & RAIN CAPS
We sell both spark arresters and rain caps. Chimney caps are designed to serve a variety of functions, but primarily to keep the flue dry. The rain cap prevents water from entering your chimney. Rain can damage metal dampers and masonry fireboxes. Moisture very quickly can cause masonry deterioration. We install high quality stainless steel chimney caps with lifetime warranty.

CHIMNEY CROWN REPAIRS
A chimney crown is a masonry roof that covers the top of your chimney.  It prevents water from seeping into the masonry below.  Water damaged or cracked chimney crowns can lead to costly chimney repairs.  Contact Mr. Chimney Cricket for additional information.

CHIMNEY LEAK REPAIRS
Chimneys are highly exposed to the elements and if left unprotected, are susceptible to structural deterioration.  It is important to address this problem before serious damage occurs.  Contact Mr. Chimney Cricket for additional information.
