Chimney Restoration Is One Of Our Passions & Specialties
As strong and durable as they are, masonry chimneys and fireplaces can develop damage and need a little TLC from time to time, especially as they age. While bricks can last for a century or longer when properly cared for, water, weather, and house settling can take their toll — but we can help. We specialize in chimney and fireplace restoration and take great care to respect the integrity and design of each chimney and choose the appropriate brickwork. For historic restorations or performance and safety required restorations, we’re the only company you need to call.
There are many beautiful historic homes within the greater Columbia area, and here at Chimspector Venting Specialists, we strive to maintain the quality, craftsmanship, design, and character of the original chimneys and fireplaces, while restoring safety and appearance. When restoring an historic chimney, we make sure that the materials and techniques used are in alignment with the original architecture and that the results mimic the original design, so you can enjoy your chimney as it was meant to be enjoyed. Think of us as curators in museums — we work to restore the work of art that is your chimney by making repairs that imitate the original artistry and style. In fact, our goal is to make your restored chimney look completely original, but in excellent condition that doesn’t reveal its years. From weather and climate-induced mortar cracks and spalling brick to deteriorating chimney crowns and water problems, we’re expertly trained and prepared to take on any restoration project, whether large or small.
Ahren-Fire Restoration & Smoke Stain Removal
We also specialize in restoring chimney and fireplace systems that were poorly designed or aren’t up to current local building codes using the Ahren-Fire Restoration System. This all-in-one system is installed inside of the existing chimney and fireplace, improving performance and safety without affecting the appearance of the system. And if smoke stains are making your once beautiful fireplace unsightly and unattractive, we can remove those as well using a fast, eco-friendly, and mess-free product called Paint “N” Peel.
So whether you have an historic chimney that needs to be brought back to its original condition or you have a dirty or poorly designed system, give Chimspector Venting Specialists a call at 803-602-5929. We specialize in chimney restoration and can provide a thorough inspection to determine exactly what your chimney needs. Call or request an appointment online today!
