Certified Chimney Sweep

Creosote is the cause of most chimney fires each year in America. Every time you burn a wood fire, more creosote is deposited inside the flue, so it’s important to keep on top of it. The easiest way to do this is with annual cleaning by our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps. Using special brushes and high-powered vacuums, we’ll remove not only dangerous creosote but also any obstructions like tree debris and small-animal nests that could block air flow and send smoke, carbon monoxide and other toxins into your home.

Leaky Chimneys

Have you noticed any of these signs of a leaky chimney?

  • Unpleasant odors in the room
  • Dampness on walls close to the chimney
  • Discolored chimney masonry
  • Water on the floor of the firebox

Chimney leaks can be caused by faulty chimney crowns, flashing and other components. Masonry damage is another way that water can get into the system. Whatever the cause, a leaky chimney needs to be addressed right away to keep more extensive water damage from occurring. Our trained repair technicians can determine the exact cause of any chimney leak and fix it quickly.

Chimney masonry repair & chimney rebuilding in Amherst, NH

Chimney Masonry Repair

The masonry of a chimney is a particular concern when damaged. A compromised chimney can allow large amounts of water to infiltrate the system and cause decomposition and rotting of bricks and vulnerable materials of the home near the chimney. A process called tuckpointing is often used to fill in areas of missing brick and mortar with a strong compound that will add new strength to the chimney. A waterproof sealant can be used to block cracks in the mortar and bricks and prevent additional water from getting through. Our chimney masons perform all levels of masonry repair including complete historic restorations to the chimneys of older homes.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
