OUR SERVICES

The experts at 5 Star Ventilation, have years of experience in cleaning and installing various types of chimneys. We inspect our clients’ chimneys and offer them complete system evaluation and condition report. Our professionals also encourage our clients to follow safe burning practices to improve their chimney’s performance.

We Specialize In:

  • System Evaluation & Condition Report

A system evaluation and condition report is given to determine chimney integrity and whether or not your particular installation and chimney system meets current safety standards set by the NFPA.

  • Closed-Circuit Video Inspection

Our technicians will use a camera to inspect areas normally hidden from view, deep inside the chimney. This is done during a paid-for inspection and would not be available during an estimate.

  • Consultation

Our technicians will give advice about your installation and information about safer burning practices.

  • Chimney Cleaning/Sweeping

This vital part of chimney care will remove dangerous, combustible creosote from the inside of the chimney. 5 Star Ventilations technicians place a drop cloth at the base of the chimney and use a high-powered vacuum with a HEPA filter to catch dust and debris from entering the home while another technician is at the top of the chimney sweeping the inside from the top of the chimney down.

  • Glazed Creosote Removal

Glazed creosote is the most hazardous type of creosote and starts out similar to tar in texture. Over time, this tar-like creosote will harden and become very shiny making it quite hard to scrape off from the walls of your flue. Our technicians are trained to mechanically remove the glazed creosote from your flue ensuring a safe chimney flue for future use.

  • Gas Flue Lining/Relining

Lining or relining a chimney flue with a UL listed stainless steel lining system will prevent deadly carbon monoxide from penetrating through your unlined or deteriorating chimney. A chimney flue that currently has the original terra-cotta liner should always be relined with a UL listed stainless steel lining system to bring your chimney up to current code.

  • UL Listed Stainless Steel

Chimney lining/relining systems give new life to unlined or damaged chimneys that would otherwise have to be completely rebuilt from the ground up.

  • UL Listed Heat Sealant

Cerfractory Flue Sealant is used to restore and maintain the integrity of your chimney’s flue by eliminating the dangers in your chimney caused by gaps and cracks.

  • Chimney Repair and Resurfacing System

With 5 Star Ventilation, chimney repairs and resurfacing systems will improve your chimney performance while eliminating hazards.

  • Masonry Repairs

Here at 5 Star Ventilation, we believe in returning a deteriorating, unsafe chimney to full code-complying condition quickly and economically. Small or big masonry repairs – we do them all effectively and efficiently.

  • Tuck Pointing

This process replaces missing or loose mortar in brick chimneys.

  • Crown Repair

If your chimney has a crack, repairing this issue is a must. Crown repairs prevents water penetration through the top of your chimney and potentially saves major restoration expenses.

  • Chimney Caps

Chimney caps are an essential part of a working chimney. Caps prevent access by rain or snow, animals, birds, leaves and other debris. 5 Star Ventilation warranties stainless steel and copper caps for the lifetime of your chimney.

  • Waterproofing

Our technicians will always suggest waterproofing your chimney if you have not done so already, to protect your chimney from the elements and water damage.

  • Animals

If your chimney does not have a cap, animals can enter your chimney potentially making it their home. From birds to nests to squirrels, we will make sure to remove the animals if we are able to do so. If we cannot do it, we will recommend other options. Please do not use your furnace or fireplace if you suspect a live animal has accidentally made its way into your chimney.
