Our Chimney & Fireplace Services: An In-Depth Look

  • Chimney Inspections (With Camera): During this service, we’ll use a specialized camera that snakes up your flue to examine the interior of the chimney for blockages, damage, and any other buildup. The camera provides a detailed view, allowing for accurate assessment and identification of issues that are not otherwise visible to the naked eye.
  • Chimney Sweeping: This process removes soot, creosote, and debris from the chimney to prevent chimney fires from occurring and ensures proper ventilation. It involves using brushes and rods to clean the flue, smoke chamber, and chimney liner.
  • Chimney Repair: Our chimney and fireplace repair services encompass various tasks, all of which ensure your chimney stays in tip-top shape for the long haul. We specialize in restoring damaged masonry, addressing issues with the chimney crown, rebuilding fireboxes, installing new components, and more. Whatever you need, we’ve got it covered.
  • Update Fireplace Face: If your fireplace facing is looking less than impressive, we have options that will restore structural stability while improving aesthetics. We work with many materials such as stone, brick, tile, or wood, and we can also update the mantel and hearth to match your surrounding decor.
  • Outdoor Fireplace Service: Regular maintenance and inspection of outdoor fireplaces is a must for ensuring they operate safely and efficiently. This can include cleaning, checking for gas leaks or blockages, and repairing any structural damage caused by weather or usage.
  • Chimney Cap Installation: We can install a protective cap on top of the chimney to prevent rain, debris, animals, and birds from entering the flue and your home. These caps also help to prevent downdrafts and generally improve the efficiency of the chimney.
  • Chimney Relining: Chimney relining is the process of replacing or installing a new liner inside the chimney to improve safety and efficiency. This process addresses issues like cracked or deteriorated liners that can lead to hazardous conditions.
  • Chimney Lining Resurfacing: Sometimes a full relining job isn’t necessary. Thanks to products like FireGuard and HeatShield®, we can apply a specialized material to the interior surface of the chimney liner to repair minor damage and improve its structural integrity and performance.
  • Fireplace Damper Repair: The fireplace damper controls airflow and ventilation in the fireplace, then blocks off the flue when the system isn’t in use. All in all, a functional damper improves efficiency and prevents drafts, smoke, and odors from entering the home. If yours needs a repair or replacement, we can help.
  • Seals for Wasps, Insects & Air: Hire us to install seals or barriers to prevent insects, (such as wasps) from getting into your flue. This also keeps unwanted air from entering the chimney or fireplace, improving indoor air quality and comfort.
  • Leaky Chimney Repair: Water is your chimney’s biggest enemy, so addressing issues promptly that cause water to leak into the chimney, such as damaged flashing, cracked mortar, or faulty chimney caps, is a must. We’ve got the tools and training to set you up right, whatever your issues may be.
  • Masonry Waterproofing: Applying a water-resistant sealant to the exterior of the chimney will help to protect against water infiltration, which can cause damage to the masonry, mortar joints, and interior of the chimney. Trust our experts to apply industry-grade products correctly.
  • Brick & Mortar Repair: Damaged or deteriorating bricks and mortar in the chimney structure should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid further damage. This includes repointing mortar joints and replacing broken bricks to ensure the stability and appearance of the chimney.
  • Flashing Repair: The metal flashing at the base of the chimney (where it meets the roof) is what stops water from entering this especially vulnerable spot. Proper flashing prevents water from leaking into the roof and causing damage to the chimney and surrounding structure, but it can be damaged – we’ll fix it up right.

We Service Gas Fireplaces

Gas fireplaces are growing in popularity, and regular gas fireplace servicing is crucial for ensuring safety, efficiency, and longevity of the appliance. These services help identify and rectify potential hazards, like gas leaks or carbon monoxide emissions, reducing the risk of fire or poisoning.

Routine maintenance also ensures the fireplace operates efficiently, saving on energy costs and preventing unexpected breakdowns. Additionally, regular checkups and cleanings can prolong the lifespan of the fireplace, protecting your investment and ensuring reliable performance for the long haul.

Here’s what we offer if you have a gas fireplace that needs professional care:

  • Gas Log Maintenance: This involves cleaning the gas logs to remove soot and debris, inspecting the burner and ignition system, checking for gas leaks, and ensuring proper ventilation. Regular maintenance keeps the logs looking realistic and ensures safe, efficient operation.
  • Gas Insert Installation: This process includes selecting a suitable gas insert, preparing the existing fireplace or wall for insulation, safely connecting the gas line, and ensuring proper venting. It typically requires professional expertise to ensure compliance with safety standards and building codes.
  • Gas Fireplace Maintenance: This involves routine inspections and cleaning of the fireplace components, including the burner, pilot light, and glass doors. It also includes checking for gas leaks, ensuring proper ventilation, and verifying that the fireplace operates efficiently and safely. Regular maintenance helps prevent malfunctions and prolongs the lifespan of the fireplace.

Racoon Removal

I recently called Coopertown to request gas log service. The intake process was seamless. Alex was my technician and he was outstanding. He took time to explain and answer any questions I had as well as demonstrate and inform me of things I didn’t know. I really appreciated his professionalism and knowledge. I would definitely use Coopertown Services again and if I have a choice Alex would be the person I ask for in the future. Great job!

Why opt for professional removal, as opposed to trying DIY techniques?

Releasing wildlife properly and into the most appropriate environment is vital for the welfare of the animals, the balance of surrounding ecosystems, and overall biodiversity health. Animals released into suitable habitats have better chances of survival, and minimizing stress during the removal process – and ensuring they can exhibit natural behaviors – are crucial for their health and well-being.

Moreover, introducing wildlife into inappropriate environments can affect native species and ecological balance. This can lead to competition for resources, predation, or the spread of diseases. It also risks turning the released animals into invasive species, which can harm local wildlife and plant life.

Proper wildlife release also prevents human-wildlife conflicts by keeping animals away from human habitats, reducing the risk of damage and ensuring safety for both humans and animals.

And then there’s the legalities behind it all… Compliance with legal regulations and ethical responsibilities is imperative – and not adhering to laws and rules can land you with some hefty fines.

Leave it to the experts – we’re here to help.
