More than 30 years of chimney experience

Barnhill Chimney sweeps have more than 30 years of collective experience with chimneys — and we do it all! From traditional “open” fireplaces to old fashioned coal burning fireplaces; from wood stove inserts to shallow “Rumford” fireplaces; from gas logs to professional pizza ovens. Whatever your chimney system, we can help you keep it in top condition.

Our inspections are based on the National Fire Protection Agency 211 code requirements. Click here to learn a little more about chimney inspections, how they are carried out, and why they are important.

We’ve found all sorts of things in chimneys, from broken soda bottles to angry raccoons, and we are happy to remove bird nesting and animal debris (except for nesting chimney swifts), and even the occasional live animal. We use HEPA vacuums and drop cloths to keep the mess out of your carpets and valuable furnishings.

Our experienced and friendly sweeps will walk you through the process and take the time to explain to you what is happening with your chimney and outline your options if anything needs to be done. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and show you how to get the best out of your chimney and fireplace.
