Proudly Serving Maryland

Since 1986, Ace Chimney Sweeps has been working on the chimneys and fireplaces in the Elkton, Maryland area. We are proud to help these residents with all of their chimney maintenance, repair, and installation needs. Not only are we members of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, but our staff is certified by organizations like the Chimney Safety Institute of America, the National Fireplace Institute, and the Fireplace Investigation Research and Education (F.I.R.E.) Service. Our service area includes Cecil County, Kent County, and some parts of Hartford County. We would like to tell you a bit more about a couple of our services.

Chimney Leaks

If you suspect your chimney has a water leak, you are in luck.  Ace Chimney Sweeps specialize in fixing and preventing leaky chimneys. Water can do a lot of damage to a chimney, which is why you should have a chimney cap professionally installed. Our staff can help you pick out the perfect cap for your chimney. We also can build and repair customize flashing systems to protect that vulnerable spot where your chimney meets the roof. If you do have a water leak, we can find the leak and repair any damage it caused. After we have repaired the masonry, we can waterproof it to keep the water out of the bricks and mortar joints for at least a decade.

Gas Hearth Appliances

Although people love the atmosphere a wood-burning fireplace can give, these traditional fireplaces have very low energy efficiency ratings. This is because most of the heat produced escapes out of the chimney. This can make your utility bills be very expensive since you must turn up your thermostat to compensate for the loss of heat.

Ace Chimney Sweeps can help by converting your older masonry fireplace into a new gas hearth heating appliance.  This can be an insert or a set of gas logs. You can trust our technicians to properly install your new gas fireplace appliance to work safely and efficiently because all of our technicians have received certifications as Gas Specialists from the National Fireplace Institute. We can also service your gas hearth appliance. At least once a year, you should have your gas fireplace unit cleaned and inspected to make sure it is working correctly with no problems or issues that could lead to hazardous situations.

Not only do we provide chimney and fireplace services, but we also offer professional dryer vent and air duct cleaning services to the residents of the Elkton, Maryland area. Contact us at Ace Chimney Sweeps for your chimney maintenance, repair, and installation needs.
