Ace Chimney Sweeps Offers Expert Chimney Care To Kirkwood, Delaware

Located in Elkton, Maryland, Ace Chimney Sweeps regularly heads over to Kirkwood, Delaware. Whether you have an older home with a long-standing masonry chimney or live in a newer building with a factory-built chimney system, our professional technicians can help you with all your chimney service needs, from installations to maintenance and repairs.

The Enduring Strength of Masonry & How We Help Keep It Strong

Kirkwood has a number of buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places (including The McCoy House built in the late 1800s and the Old Post Office, built around 1870) — and those buildings offer a view into early Delaware life, as well as a view into the durability of masonry work (something that, as chimney professionals, we obviously can’t help but appreciate).

People have been using brick and mortar in buildings for centuries, precisely because it’s beautiful and durable. But even with that durability, it takes upkeep to keep masonry strong, functional and beautiful.

Ace Chimney Sweeps specializes in masonry work, and that includes everything from the regular maintenance that keeps your chimney and fireplace in great shape to repairs and restoration work that might become necessary when problems arise. We can do everything from targeted tuckpointing repairs to a complete restoration of a failing historic chimney.

We also love to start from scratch — if you’ve had a custom stone fireplace in mind, Ace Chimney Sweeps would love to build it for you. We also offer:

Our Chimney & Fireplace Repair Services

The masons of yesteryear did some beautiful work in Kirkwood, and we love that we get to see and enjoy it today. But if those professionals had had some of the tools and processes we use now in their arsenal, bets are, far more of those structures would still be standing.

Our repair services include:

And after your repairs are completed? One of the great tools we have now is waterproofing sealants, which were formulated specifically for masonry chimneys. Waterproofing keeps your masonry from absorbing water and taking on extra damage, but it still allows the materials to “breathe” and vent vapors and small particles, which is part of a masonry chimney’s design.

We’ve seen waterproofing extend the service life of masonry considerably — and it also helps minimize the possibility of a chimney leak arising from degraded masonry. We can tell you more about the benefits of ChimneySaver waterproofing products — just ask!

Travis was a rock star. He came on time, did a full cleanup and check of our fireplace, brushed and cleaned all the logs, and even took out the bottom plate to clean it, cleaned the windows really well, cleaned up after he was done, and left the place spotless. He fixed a problem we had with the fireplace going on and off all the time, and after he was done, he let it go on for a bit to make sure it was working properly before he left. He was very courteous, and easy to talk to, and answered all our questions to our complete satisfaction. He even was kind enough to help us schedule our next appointment in 2024. We highly recommend Ace Chimney Sweeps and Travis in particular. It’s really nice to see there are still people out there with such strong work ethics, and it makes me feel safer to use the fireplace this winter. I really hope we get him again, next August.
