Safety Inspections: Before Casey's begins any work on your
chimney, we perform a full safety inspection to assess the condition of your
chimney and the adherence of all Rhode Island fire codes. Your inspection will
start at the top of your chimney and end, in most cases, in your basement where
your chimney starts. We are looking for: Fire extinguishers, smoke/carbon
monoxide detectors, fire escape plan, brickwork, mortar, flue integrity,
flashing, crown wash,
chimney cap/spark arrestor. Once we
inspect your chimney, we move on to your fireplace or wood stove heating
appliance. Here, we are looking at: Hearth protection,
firebox, ash container, smoke chamber,
damper, spark screen/doors, stove pipe
condition, stove gasketing, installation/thimble/clearances. At the conclusion
of your inspection, the customer is given a safety inspection sheet to review.
It is important to note that most insurance company's now require a yearly
safety inspection of heating appliances.
Cleaning: Casey's offers full service cleanings for your gas,
oil, wood stove and fireplace flues. We use
state of the art equipment which guarantees no mess, and a thorough cleaning
from top to bottom. We also clean dryer vents.
Installation of: Chimney caps/spark arrestor, dampers,
chimney liners, and clean-out doors, and
non-masonry chimneys. If provided by the customer, Casey's will install
fireplace screens/doors, smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, and fire
Build and re-build:
All types of masonry chimneys.
Fireplaces indoor and outdoor.
Repairs of all kinds including: dampers, liners (when
possible), woodstoves, crowns, flashing, etc.. Please note that Casey's will
make every attempt to repair rather than replace equipment. That damper that
hasn't worked for you in years may just need a spring or screw!
Flashing or re-flashing around the base of your chimney.
Pointing of all kinds.
