Chimney Sweep in Manchester, NH
The best way to ensure that your chimney is working safely and efficiently is to schedule annual cleaning with a certified chimney sweep. We remove creosote and other obstructions from chimneys and vent pipes used with wood-burning and pellet-burning fireplaces and stoves. Our chimney sweeps are certified through the Chimney Safety Institute of America. We show up on time and get the job done safely and correctly.
Intense heat from the firebox, extreme weather from outside and plain old age can all cause chimneys to fall into need of repair. Spotting early signs of chimney damage requires an intricate knowledge of chimney structures and their components. When we perform annual chimney safety inspections for Manchester-area homes, we cover all the bases:
- Chimney bricks and mortar joints
- Chimney cap / chase top
- Chimney crown / top-sealing damper (if applicable)
- Chimney liner
- Throat damper
More extensive inspections often include the smoke chamber, the smoke shelf and interior masonry.
Chimney Leaks / Leaky Chimney

These are signs of a leaky chimney and should be addressed immediately. The Black Moose team of certified chimney technicians will determine where the leak is happening and the best method to repair it. We’ll get your chimney back to a safe operational state quickly.
Manchester, NH, Chimney Repairs
Any part of the chimney structure that is damaged can lead to more serious damage and a safety risk for everyone in the home. Decaying bricks, cracked mortar joints and chimney crowns, warped flashing, compromises in the chimney liner – we perform expert chimney repair in all these situations and more. Our crew will replace any component that can’t be repaired and restore peak efficiency to your chimney.
Chimney Masonry Work
A serious concern with chimneys is when sections of brick and mortar begin to fall away from the structure. A process called tuckpointing can be used to fill in open areas with a strong mortar compound that will add years of solid performance to your chimney. For minor cracking, we often can use a waterproof sealant to prevent water from infiltrating the system. We perform these services for many homes throughout the Manchester, NH, area.
If your chimney is leaning to one side or is suffering significant damage throughout the structure, our team of expert masons can perform partial or complete chimney rebuilding. A thorough inspection will tell us the extent of the damage and dictate the best solution. Severely damaged chimneys should not be used until they are rebuilt or repaired.
