Flue Tech technicians use the best tools, techniques, and technology to solve your chimney and fireplace problems.
Whether you need chimney repairs, fireplace restoration, a flue lining system, smoke chamber restoration, or a cast-in-place liner, we have the knowledge and experience to solve your problems quickly and dependably without dust and dirt in your home.
Chimney Caps and Dampers
Chimney caps serve a number of purposes, including improving home safety, preventing nesting material hazards and weather problems, and avoiding costly repairs and heat loss. Draft induction fans ensure a constant draft to eliminate smoking fireplace problems.
Chimney Caps and Spark Arrestors
These products are used to keep out animals and elements, and they keep water out of a flue to slow deterioration of masonry chimneys. The mesh is perfect for keeping out squirrels and birds.
Copper Chimney Pots
European copper chimney pots enhance the architecture, appearance, and chimney safety of your home. They are made of 100% copper and stainless steel and feature a lifetime warranty.
In addition, they provide excellent rain protection, deter pests, assist in chimney draft, and serve as a spark arrestor. They are rust-proof and, other than a yearly inspection when your chimney professional visits, require no maintenance.
Top Lock Dampers
Top lock dampers eliminate 90% of the winter heat and summer cooling loss that leaks past your current damper. It also eliminates down drafts and keeps moisture and animals out of your chimney and home. Moisture in your chimney causes unwelcome odors and leads to deterioration of bricks and mortar.
A top lock damper/cap combo combines a cap into the damper system which provides protection when open.
Your chimney chase cover may be the key to that “unsolvable” leak problem. Chase covers are designed to complete the termination at the top of your chimney and keep water out. Think of it as the roof for your chimney.
If your chase cover is leaking, it can cause thousands of dollars in damage that you may not be able to see until it is too late.
Flue Tech provides custom made stainless steel or copper chases with extended collars so there is no need for storm collars, which can eventually leak. Welded corners on the skirt and a pitched roof improve rain runoff and prevent leakage.
Expert chimney masonry repairs improve the value of your home.
Flue Tech provides professional repair of leaking chimney crowns and chimney mortar and brick water damage.

Chimney repointing is the practice of replacing loose or damaged mortar between the bricks of your chimney.
Temperature fluctuations cause an expansion of mortar. This expansion is normal, but over time the mortar becomes weak or damaged and can compromise the safety of your chimney.
Our chimney repointing process includes an assessment of the damage, removal of the mortar joints and application of new mortar that matches the existing mortar. We finish by applying a sealant.
Sealing of Flashings
Improperly sealed flashings are a common cause of water leaks. Flashings are the layers of material that connect your roof to your chimney for a water-tight seal. Age and weather can deteriorate the flashing and allow water in that can cause severe damage to your roof, framing and the ceilings inside your home.
When water enters a chimney it deteriorates and erodes the flue and brick work causing rust and mold. In freezing weather, water will expand and cause major cracking. Waterproofing can prolong the life of your chimney.
Let our technicians help protect your home’s chimney from the ravages of water damages.

Draft Inducing Fans
Draft inducing fans can be invaluable for chimneys/flues with unsolvable draft problems. They instantly solve draft issues by mechanically ensuring draft. The fans are easy to use and virtually maintenance free. They can be used with wood or gas fireplaces as well as coal and oil fueled appliances. The fan duplicates as a ventilator: simply turn it on to rid your home of stale air and cigarette smoke. They can be controlled by wall switches mounted near the fireplace or by remote control.
