Chimney Repair & Restoration
We offer a full range of repairs to chimney systems, big and small - from repairing leaky flashing, to tuckpointing and masonry repair, to relining the flue and chimney rebuilding. We were the first factory-trained ceramic flue installer in Southern CA. You can count on Fiddler on the Roof Chimney Service for quality service and craftsmanship for all of your chimney repair needs.
We provide a full spectrum of masonry repairs; including exterior tuckpointing, crown wash repairs/replacements, and replacing those worn out firebox bricks with new extruded fire brick.
Ceramic Flue Sealant
We have restored over 500 chimneys with ceramic flue sealant. This is an excellent way to restore deteriorated and damaged chimneys back to fire safe condition. Ceramic flue sealant will seal cracks and flue joints, and replace missing or deteriorated mortar in flue systems without affecting the performance of the chimney. It leaves the flue system with a gas-tight, fire-safe, rock-hard, code approved lining.
Available options are removing and rebuilding damaged portions or complete removal and replacement - masonry or prefabricated. Our experience includes rebuilding over 300 chimneys.
A chimney without a damper is costing you money - as much as 30% of your heat and air conditioning can go up the chimney. We can provide a top damper that fits into a flue cap. This stainless steel damper easily opens and closes with a spring loaded pull chain that's mounted on the firebox wall. We also install blade dampers in the throat of the chimney.
Chimney Cap Installation
The best way to prevent moisture from rain, or animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap. We install high-quality stainless steel caps.
Log Lighter Installation or Replacement
This gas fueled rigid pipe supplying heat to your wood can really make getting your fire started easy. We install and/or replace ones that have worn out.
Chimney Fan Installation
For those fireplaces and chimneys that just will not draw properly on their own, we recommend the Exhausto chimney fan. Quiet, maintenance-free, and energy efficient - the perfect solution.
Dual purpose firebacks can protect the firebox bricks from excessive wear and tear caused by heat and provide 20% to 40% more heat in the room where you can enjoy it.
Gas Log Tune-Up
We can spruce up your gas logs with a cleaning and new sand and embers kit.
We can provide you with a variety of accessories including glass doors, tool sets, or anything that you might think of to enhance the beauty and function of your fireplace.
