Chimney Sweep and Inspection
A chimney sweep should be more than a cleaning. Your annual sweep should include a level 2 inspection to make sure your chimney and heating appliance are still safe, efficient, and in working order.
Our sweeps come with a level 2 inspection using the most advanced equipment in the industry. We spared no dime with making sure we have the right equipment such as our ChimScan which is a unique camera system designed to inspect the inside of your fireplace and chimney.
You won't find this kind of service with most other chimney companies. Especially in such an unregulated industry. We are trained and certified as Chimney Technicians from the Chimney Safety Institute of America. You can verify our credentials and find sweeps closer to home at the following link.
Chimneys have been around since man brought fire into their homes. Since than modifications and advancements have been made. However, your house probably has an old chimney or one that is falling apart. It can be costly to rebuild a chimney, ranging from a few thousand for small rooftop chimneys to tens of thousands for bigger chimney rebuilds.
Let our professional technicians inspect your old chimney and see if you would benefit from a chimney liner. When we inspect your chimney we are looking for dangers hidden within your chimney walls. We only use the best liners in the industry, so you're sure to get the value you pay for.
We have access to theDuraVent Veninox VFT and VG. Our supplier is the only supplier since August 15 2019 to carry the Ventinox line in North America. Call Starks Chimney Services today to get your lifetime DuraVent liner.
Chimneys can last forever if taken care of right. Often times what we see in the field is neglected chimneys or chimneys that have not been properly repaired by a certified and licensed professional. We understand that economic times are hitting hard on everyone. We also have families and homes to care for.
It's more affordable in the long run to maintain your chimneys with minor repairs than to have to rebuild or replace an entire heating system. Call us for an inspection of your heating system and see how we can save you money, time, and stress.
We may not be the cheapest in the industry but we can match or beat most competitor pricings. We are a small company and can afford to offer fair pricing unlike the larger companies who have huge overhead costs and have to charge astronomical pricing. We have the same insurance (2 Million), the same tools, just better pricing.
One of the best feelings after a long day of work in the middle of winter is having a fire. The warmth put off by a fire beats any heating appliance and seems to warm the soul. Plus, did you see those gas prices? Wood heating is affordable and reliable with the right training.
There is very few applications or home types where a woodstove can't be installed. In fact it can be installed in most any home and if done right can be just as safe and efficient as other home heating devices.
Don't put off that dream any longer. Let the technicians at Starks Chimney Services install your woodstove appliance. Also ask our sales representatives about going Green with EPA approved stoves that come with a federally backed mail in rebate.
You don't have to look at that empty fireplace any longer. You can remove the electric display, the fake logs, or the stack of wood that will never actually burn in your fireplace. You can upgrade that unusable fireplace with a new fireplace insert. There are many styles to choose from and some even come with the EPA federal rebate.
There are many benefits to a fireplace insert. The newer models are 75% efficient, especially when we compare to a typical fireplace where almost all the heat goes right up and out of the chimney. Getting a fireplace insert allows you to get blowers that move the heat throughout your home.
Did we mention the beauty of having a fireplace insert in your home? It can take an old fireplace and make it new. The liners that are install bypass any obsolete flue you may have or damaged smoke chamber. Fireplace inserts can also be more affordable than repairing a broken down chimney flue and fireplace.
Your fireplace may have some smashed firebrick, cracks, missing joints, rusted or broken dampers, rusted or broken ash dump doors. Let us turn your fireplace into a useable working and beautiful peace to your room. We can parge the smoke chamber, firebox, and replace any broken brick, ash dump doors, and dampers.
Often times people think the fireplace is just a place for fire and who cares how it looks. I can agree, however a cracked brick, missing joints, and a non working damper can be unsafe. Especially if you haven't had a level 2 inspection recently. Don't burn at the risk of your family and home.
Let Starks Chimney Services repair your fireplace today.

Chimney Crown or Chimney Wash
The top of your chimney is the most vulnerable to harsh weather. From wind, rain, hailstorms, snow, ice, the occasional branch, and even nesting birds. This is why you should never go with a cheap chimney saver solution for your chimney. Get it right the first time by calling Starks Chimney Services.
We replace your wash and give you one that can last a lifetime. We are one of the only chimney companies in the area that actually build washes to code. By code and for smart design all chimneys should have an expansion joint. I see about 99% of the time washes and flues without expansion joints.
You get the new wash with no expansion joint and as soon as you have a fire, the clay tiles heat up, expand, and crack your wash allowing water to destroy your chimney. This is true for new and old washes. Never half fast the top of your chimney, let the professionals at Starks Chimney Services serve you.
