We Can Restore That Old Fireplace or Chimney

Chimney Works offers a variety of chimney repairs to keep your fireplace and chimney operating at its best. Some of the repairs we perform are:

Chimney Restoration and Reconstruction

Whether the chimney is in need of minor repairs or complete reconstruction, Chimney Works technicians and masons are trained to help you determine the appropriate course of action. No job is too big or too small, and you’ll appreciate our professional craftsmanship and care for your home.

Firebox Repointing and Rebuilding

The firebox of your fireplace takes a lot of heat and abuse. If any of the bricks are loose or if any of the mortar joints are eroded back more than 1/2 inch it may be time for a repair.

Mortar Crown Repair

The mortar crown is the concrete-like surface at the top of your chimney. Its job is to shed water away from the flue and also keep water from entering the chimney chase. Cracks or missing pieces in the mortar crown can lead to extensive water damage in your chimney. Mortar crowns may be repaired with traditional masonry products or a specialized waterproof product called CrownSeal.

Damper Repair

A damper stops heat from escaping up your chimney when the fireplace is not in use. If your fireplace does not have a damper or a tight fitting set of glass doors you are pumping money up your chimney. Give us a call! We offer throat dampers and top sealing dampers and damper cap combinations.

Factory-Built Fireplaces

We offer repairs for factory-built fireplaces including new chase covers, firebox walls, chimney caps, screens and glass doors.

Our Happy Clients

  • Robert C.

    "All employees were extremely well mannered, very nice, did a fantastic job. Christian Martinez was very thorough and professional. Excellent service, would definitely recommend."

  • Matt H.

    "They installed a vent pipe for our gas water heater. That solved our back draft problem. They were also $400.00 cheaper than other chimney guys in the Cincinnati area."

  • Pike G.

    "What a relief to have found Chimney Works! We have cleaned our chimney for years with another vendor but became dissatisfied with poor service. We knew the time had come for a new liner and some general repairs to our 75 year old chimney. Christian Martinez was AMAZING!!"

  • Erin C.

    "My husband and I researched wood burning stoves for quite a while, and found Chimney Works. For the price, quality, and service, we were sold on this company! I am typically apprehensive about having workers come into my home, but the installation crew that came to set up our new stoves, were phenomenal!"

  • Michael

    "I purchased a fireplace insert a couple of years ago and have been very happy with it. It has paid for itself at this point due to the reduction in our monthly heating bill. When I went in to purchase, the staff was very helpful and took time to explain everything I needed to know about my new insert, right down to how to properly clean the glass."

  • Anastasia

    "Great company! We get our fireplace checked annually, and Jeremy Woods came out to maintain our fireplace today. Like all the employees we've dealt with this company he was super friendly and professional."

  • J, Merrimack

    "He was fantastic. Thorough, professional, careful, instructive to help us clean it ourselves. Worked hard for his $$. Arrived on time. Excellent value for the money. We will definitely be calling him again."
