Through the years we have maintained high quality work at very fair prices. The chimney sweeping business has seen a lot of changes, and we have continued our education through the years to stay abreast of those developments in the industry. Our services typically begin with an inspection and chimney cleaning if it’s needed. We can also help you repair or rebuild your chimney, increase the heat efficiency of your fireplace by installing a wood stove or gas insert, or even assist with animal remediation.
Our chimney repairs cover everything from simple tuckpointing to new cement crowns and waterproofing chimney masonry. Let us help you with your chimney repair needs whatever they may be.
Fireplace inserts are basically front-facing stoves that can be installed inside your existing fireplace. They don’t require any additional space in your living room and can increase heat efficiency by 10-15 times.
Getting your chimney inspected and cleaned every year is the best thing you can do for your home. Over time, flammable creosote can build up inside your chimney’s flue system, and will need to be cleaned out by a chimney sweep.
A fireplace damper controls whether your chimney flue is either open and allowing air flow or closed and allowing none. There are two main types of fireplace dampers: throat dampers and top mounted damper caps.
A chimney liner is the part of the chimney flue pipe that contains the byproducts of combustion while directing sparks, smoke, and dangerous gases up from your fireplace and out the top of your chimney. We inspect current chimney liners to check for repairs and install replacements.
Your firebox and hearth are the areas in your fireplace that receive the most direct heat. Our annual inspection includes making sure your firebox and hearth are functioning properly and haven’t been damaged by the constant heat exposure.
Chase covers and crowns are important because they help prevent rainwater from entering your chimney. Metal chase covers are situated on top of your chimney, over time can they rust out and be damaged by inclement weather. Crowns are a sloped concrete slab on top of masonry chimneys that prevent water penetration.
Your chimney is one of the strongest and sturdiest features of your home, but even the strongest materials can be damaged. If yours is damaged beyond repair, then it’s time to rebuild.
Wood and gas stoves are two of the most efficient ways of providing a secondary heat source for your home. They actually produce 10-15 times more heat than your normal fireplace. We install and repair both wood and gas stoves.
Chimney caps help protect the top of your chimney from rainwater, animals, and other debris, which could otherwise cause dangerous blockages or water damage. We can install or replace yours with our lifetime warranty products.
Chimney Flashing is the protective covering between your chimney and roof. Our experts can assess the current condition of your flashing to make sure it’s watertight and protecting your home from leaks.

Rooftop Chimney Sweeps is a fantastic, family owned business that really knows their stuff! They are very knowledgeable, honest, and the best company since the invention of the chimney.
From scheduling with Ms. Leissler to the service provided by Grant and his associate, I was very pleased with their service. They were timely and respectful of my home as well. Highly recommend!
Used Rooftop Chimney to clean our chimney when we bought our first house this past winter. The service was great, the workers made sure to keep everything tight and clean, and the results were perfect. They gave us some great pieces of info we had no clue to be aware about as new homeowners. Well run company with great people!
A great local company! Rooftop Chimney Sweeps are without a doubt the best Alexandria company for fireplace/wood stove installation, dryer vent cleaning, and chimney cleaning.
Excellent work and pricing. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Used them several times for inspections, chimney lining, replacing crowns and exterior brick.
