Welcome to Chester County Hearth & Home, where for over 20 years we’ve provided satisfied customers with expert chimney service, fireplace upgrades and total replacement.
The National Fire Protection Association recommends that homeowners
have their chimney inspected at least once a year.
Chester County Hearth & Home offers a full portfolio of chimney and venting system services. Whether it’s woodstoves, fireplaces, chimneys, or dryer vents, we understand the intricacies of the venting systems in your home. And we’re equipped to address all of your maintenance and safety needs. Our services include:
Our CSIA Certified Chimney Sweeps use state-of-the-art equipment to inspect and sweep 1st- and 2nd-story chimneys of all kinds, including oil-, wood-, and gas-burning chimneys. While sweeping your system, we ensure that it’s in working order. We look for any problems that could prevent peak performance and recommend what is needed for your system to burn cleanly and safely. When necessary, we use video inspection camera equipment to examine hidden parts of the flue.
In addition to servicing chimneys, we inspect and clean dryer vents in one- and two-story homes. A thorough sweep by one of our dryer exhaust technicians includes searching for any issues that might interfere with optimal operation. Highly effective diagnostic tools allow us to detect and resolve issues before they become problems.
We offer the 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.
Water damage resulting from a missing chimney cap is all too common. We remedy this situation by reconstructing the back walls of fireplaces, returning them to their original pristine condition.
Improperly built crowns are another common problem. If yours is cracked or poorly constructed—allowing water penetration or posing a fire hazard—we’ll build a proper concrete one that’s guaranteed not to crack.
The best way to prevent moisture from rain and snow, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney is to install a chimney cap. Our high-quality stainless steel caps carry a lifetime warranty.
Leaky or damaged chase tops, and those made of masonry, are potential hazards on prefabricated metal fireplaces. We help eliminate problems before they start by replacing masonry and rusty metal chase tops.
If water is damaging your fireplace inside or out, we’ll find and fix it—no matter the source.
We install all hearth appliances. Our installers are employees not subcontractors and are all CSIA certified chimney sweeps. We provide ourselves on our level of safety in meeting codes and often exceeding UL guidelines in our installations.
