Why Chimney Repair?
Your chimney is an out-of-sight-out-of-mind feature of your home. Therefore, unless you have your chimney inspected annually, you likely won’t know your chimney is in need of a repair until the damage is done.
T.J.’s Chimney Service has been inspecting, sweeping, and repairing chimneys since 1979. If there is a problem with your chimney, we have the knowledge and experience to fix it.
Your chimney braves the outdoor elements, continually exposed to water, high winds, and extreme temperatures. It’s also possible it serves as an unintended home to birds, bats, and other animals.
When your chimney needs repair, you may notice:
- Chips or breaks in your masonry
- A white powdery substance on the chimney bricks
- An unpleasant smell coming from your fireplace
- Smoke filling your living room
- Water dripping in your fireplace
These are all signs that you have water damage in your chimney, you have a buildup of soot or creosote, or birds or rodents are seeking shelter in your chimney.
TJ's Chimney Service offers the following chimney repairs:
- Custom Chimney Caps
A perfect fit for your chimney, our custom chimney caps make a tight seal, keeping water, moisture, and debris out of your chimney.
- Masonry Repair and tuck pointing
This specialized technique replaces your broken mortar with new mortar, protecting your home from a deteriorating or falling chimney.
- Chimney Sweep
Using a heavy-duty poly bristled brush and a video inspection camera, we sweep your chimney thoroughly, ensuring every hidden space of your chimney is inspected and cleaned.
- Chimney Relining
If the flue lining of your chimney system is damaged, T.J.’s Chimney Service will replace or repair it, protecting your walls, attic, and other parts of your home from embers or moisture.
- Flashing Repair
We repair or replace damaged or missing flashing, tightening the connection between your chimney and your roof, and protecting your home from mold, drywall damage, rotting wood, and expensive repairs.
We extend the life of your chimney by applying a water-repellant coating to your chimney masonry, sealing the cracks in the mortar joints and the joints of the chimney itself.

So very happy with our updated fireplace! Brandon, David, and Austin did an awesome job. Professional, knowledgeable. Very careful in keeping everything neat and clean. I would recommend TJ’s to anyone who asked. Great job! We love our fireplace.
This company went above and beyond to make sure everything was done exactly as I wanted, and done correctly! The installers were professional and friendly, as well as the office workers! I can’t recommend this company highly enough.
Brandon and Jordan did an excellent and professional job of removing our old fireplace and installing the new fireplace. This included masonry and carpentry work. Brandon was very precise with his installation of the cultured stone around the fireplace as well as reinstalling the mantel and trim. We highly recommend them.
