We want to establish what the problem is so that we can effectively address the source of your problem and prevent any other problems from presenting itself. It is recommended that if you suspect a problem with your chimney that you give us a call to inspect it for you. We also recommend that you have an annual inspection to ensure that there are no problems with your chimney before you use it in the winter.
When you are having your chimney inspected annually, you don’t have to worry about water coming into your chimney and creating mold and mildew. Instead of allowing this type of problem to occur, we recommend our tuckpointing services.

Cap And Crown Repair
Our technicians will identify whether or not it is your chimney cap or crown that needs to be repaired. We clearly understand what the difference between the two is even if the homeowner does not. We’ll make sure that we perform a complete evaluation to determine which one is creating the problem and make any needed repairs.
When you call on us to service your chimney or make any needed repairs, we will make sure that there are no tiles in the chimney that could catch fire. If there are then this indicates a problem with your chimney flue, which we will quickly repair before any more tiles can get into the chimney.
It is better to be safe rather than sorry. We know it may seem excessive but if you use your fireplace during the winter months then we highly recommend that you have a chimney inspection before using it. This could save you from having expensive repairs made later. With a thorough inspection, we can make any necessary repairs. An inspection is part of our chimney maintenance program.

“My parents stay cold and use their fireplace more than most people. We hire MKE Chimney to evaluate and service their chimney several times a year. They always let us know, far in advance, when we need to have repairs of any type made. They are good at what they do and that is why we are recommending their services.” – John J.
“I wanted a chimney for our new house and when I contacted MKE Chimney Repair, they offered us the best price and the most beautiful chimney options. It looks great and we couldn’t be happier with the results.” – Stan R.
“We never had the chimney inspected and as a result, a lot of soot was coming into our house. When we contacted MKE Chimney Repair, they were quick about responding to our request for inspection. They even made the needed repairs the same day they came to inspect our chimney. I highly recommend their services.” – Gary T.
When Should You Hire A Chimney Professional?
As a professional chimney repair company in Milwaukee, we can honestly say this answer is up to you. We believe it's always best to hire professionals to handle important tasks (and yes chimney issues are important). According to the statistics published by the Chimney Safety Institute of America, chimney fires cause more than $125 million worth of damage every year. That's something we never want to hear about from our clients here in Wisconsin.
If you haven't had your chimney inspected by a professional in 2 or more years, we highly recommend getting that done. If you hear loud popping noises coming from your fireplace or chimney (that's not associated with the fire), that's a sign something is brewing. And it likely won't be a great situation when it fully materializes. If you're noticing that smoke isn't quite leaving the fireplace properly, you have a serious blockage issue and need a professional chimney sweep quickly.
Water damage can also be a sign that the chimney is having trouble. If you see water leaking into the fireplace or chimney stack, it's time to call a professional chimney company. Tracing a water leak and fixing it is something you want a pro handling to ensure it's done correctly. Water can erode other crucial elements of the house over time.
Lastly, if you're a homeowner, look for a few common signs of a chimney fire. Sometimes, small chimney fires can occur in your chimney without you fully noticing, but these small fires are only setting up a large one down the road. Do you notice any warping in your damper? This is a common symptom of a chimney fire. Are you seeing any cracks throughout the chimney masonry? Is the roof showing any signs of damage near the chimney? Is the cap looking odd or deformed? These are all common signs that a fire has occurred and you need to call an expert.
Many times, homeowners insurance can help with chimney repairs. Check your policy to be sure, but we find that often there's documentation showing that a policy can help with expenses if the damage is reasonably caused by the chimney failure. Again, we're not insurance professionals, so check with your agent or provider for specific details on your exact policy.
