We Rebuild Chimneys From the Ground Up
Are you building a home and dreaming of nights spent in front of a crackling fire in your new space? Or have you been told that your existing chimney has to be demolished because of its many safety hazards? If you want a fireplace and chimney that is safe, gorgeous, and built to last for the life of your home, Jack Pixley Sweeps is the company to call. In business in Minnesota since 1977, we’ve got chimney building down to a science. It’s what we do every day, and it’s what we love. We’ve studied under some of the world’s finest chimney masons and have taken great pleasure in learning how best to build and rebuild chimneys from the ground up. Our certified chimney technicians and masons love working with our customers to determine what fireplace or heating appliance best suits their needs. And you can trust that all the components of your chimney system will work together to give you maximum efficiency, heat, ambiance, and peace of mind, while requiring the least possible maintenance.
How Is A Chimney Built?
There’s a lot that goes into building a quality chimney, and you can count on Jack Pixley Sweeps to cover it all, working quickly and conducting ourselves professionally, all while exceeding national safety standards. Depending on your needs, our process of building your chimney may include:
- Masonry work
- Installation of a rain cover, chimney flashing, and chimney liner
- Building a custom crown
- Construction of a firebox and/or fireplace front
- Installation of a gas or wood insert or Ahrens Fireplace system
- Application of a water repellent
We’re also proud to own and erect our own scaffolding, which saves customers the added expense of hiring a scaffolding company during the chimney construction process.
A European Style of Chimney Construction
Ever seen a centuries-old building that’s falling to pieces, but the chimney is still standing? We’ve carefully studied what it takes to build a chimney that lasts, and our time-tested crown construction method can extend the life of the chimney to about 100 years. Our team members will be more than happy to tell you more about what makes our chimney builds stand apart.
