ServicesFireplace Damper Repair

So you have a damper that will not open or close, is rusted out or is non-existent. The economical solution is to have a top-closing damper installed.

The Top-Of-Chimney Replacement Damper: The Economical Way to Replace a Fireplace Damper

The top-closing damper mounts to the top of a tan-colored flue tile. A stainless steel cable runs down the chimney flue and connects to a bracket inside your fireplace. The cable is pulled down to close the damper. The cable is let up when you want the damper open. The purpose of a damper is to prevent heat loss when the fireplace is not being used. It also keeps out down drafts when closed.

This damper is made of stainless steel, so it will not rust. It also keeps rain and animals out. If a crown and flue tile is not present on your chimney (or if the crown and tile are in bad shape) then a new crown and flue tile will need to be installed on top of the chimney.

Leaving this review for my parents, who recently hired Cliff from Rooftop Chimney for a chimney repair, back in June. They were quick with an estimate, at a fair price and the work was scheduled promptly. They did an excellent job and we would definitely hire them again in the future or recommend them to friends!

I’m selling my house and needed the wood stove insert removed. With the closing date approaching, Rooftop Chimney was able to work me in their schedule and get the job done quickly and professionally. I got the DEQ certificate much faster than I thought I would. Thanks to Justin and his crew!!! I would highly recommend Rooftop Chimney.

Arrived on time – worked very hard to remove our very heavy fireplace insert and took extreme care to do the job well. Completed their work by cleaning our two chimneys and got it all done in good time. We would recommend their services to all.

After selling our home, the inspection indicated that there was some work that needed to be done on our chimney including repairing some mortar as well as putting a top cap on the chimney. I contacted Rooftop Chimney and Roof Services. They were very knowledgeable answering all of my questions. That along with prompt professional service I would recommend them for any chimney needs you may need!

We do give free estimates, but we have found over the years that getting photos ahead of time can speed things up dramatically. Heck, we have talked ourselves out of work by seeing photos and telling the customer “No, you do not need a several-thousand dollar rebuild; it looks like you only need a…”. It has happened.
