Expert Chimney & Fireplace Services

When your chimney is properly maintained and serviced, your fireplace and stove can and should provide years of warmth and enjoyment for your home and family. We’re here to make sure your chimney is able to do the hard work it was designed for — keeping harmful gases and other dangerous byproducts of combustion out of your home — safely and efficiently. Whether you need your annual chimney inspection or a full chimney restoration, A-1 Chimney Specialist is eager to help.

Keeping your chimney in top shape — and keeping your home and family safe — is our priority.

  • Chimney Inspection – Regular maintenance and preventative measures can help you avoid costly repairs down the line. The most valuable part of that process: a proper annual chimney inspection from an experienced, licensed, A-1 Chimney Specialist chimney sweep. The National Fire Protection Association, the National Chimney Sweeping Guild, the Environmental Protection Agency and the American Lung Association all recommend that a chimney inspection be done every year. A-1 Chimney Specialist’s CSIA-certified sweeps provide two levels of chimney inspection to find and diagnose any existing or potential problems that may be hiding in your system. Our Level 2 inspections include state-of-the-art interior color video scanning that can reveal potential problems a visual inspection might miss.
  • Chimney Sweeping – When you use your fireplace and stove, the chimney is removing the harmful byproducts of combustion from your home. It’s natural, over time, for those byproducts to build up inside of the chimney, forming creosote, a highly-combustible residue that can lead to damage, blockages, even fire. An A-1 Chimney Specialist technician can properly sweep your chimney, removing creosote, ash and other buildup to ensure that your chimney is able to do its best work. And our technicians make sure to contain as they sweep, so your home will look as clean when we leave as it did when we arrived.
  • Chimney Repairs – If your chimney is showing signs of trouble — leaks, gaps, cracks or other issues — our CSIA-certified technicians can help. We have years of experience solving the biggest and smallest chimney problems for customers in the Tullahoma and Winchester, Tenn., area, from chimney cap replacements to full rebuilds.
  • Chimney Lining – Whether you need a lining for a historic chimney that was built without one, repairs on an existing lining or a replacement lining to bring your chimney to the highest level of efficiency, call A-1 Chimney Specialist — we’re here to make sure you have the right chimney lining for your chimney and to keep your lining in the best shape possible.
  • Chimney Caps – A chimney cap is hugely helpful in keeping rain, snow, sleet and animals out of your flue. If your chimney cap is damaged or missing, A-1 Chimney Specialist has a large selection of chimney caps that will match your home’s needs, functionally and aesthetically.
  • Chimney Waterproofing Services – Water is your chimney’s worst enemy, so doing everything possible to keep water out should be every homeowner’s priority. A-1 Chimney Specialist can help make sure that your chimney cap, chimney crown and flashing are all doing their job of keeping water out properly, and we can also apply an effective waterproofing sealant that can add years of life to your chimney and take heaps of worry off your shoulders.
  • Gas Fireplace Service – From installation and cleaning to maintenance, service, and repair, the team here at A-1 Chimney Specialist can help keep your gas fireplace or gas log set in tip top shape so you can enjoy the warmth and convenience of your appliance, winter after winter.

  • review rating 5  Great service! Due to unexpected doctor appointments, I had to reschedule two times and they worked with me to get it done as soon as possible. They were very prompt; the living area was left exactly as it was when they arrived (no mess at all!) and answered my questions. I highly recommend them!

  • review rating 5  In a time where customer service is becoming more infrequent than frequent , I have to take a moment to acknowledge the superb above and beyond service my husband and I received from A1 Chimney . First of all , we came to use this company several years ago when they sleeved our 100 year old house's chimney so we could burn real wood . We have used them regularly to check and sweep our chimney since. This year however , I had a chimney fire . Thankfully no damage was done . In looking at my records , I realized I hadn't had the chimney swept in a few years . BIG mistake on my part , hence the fire . So I called the company , sing my woes , asking if it would be possible for them to come out before Thanksgiving , this is less than 2 weeks prior by the way . Kind Marty lets me know the first availability isn't until 12/16 but he will do his best to see what he can do. He calls me back the same day to let me know he had jiggled some things around and could be out 12/13 . I thanked him but asked if there were any cancellations to please let me know. Kind Marty , let me rephrase , very KIND Marty , calls me back a couple of days ago asking if we could be free the Monday pre Thanksgiving . Absolutely , I reply . Well on Monday afternoon Preston and Robert leave after checking for damage , cleaning and confirming the sleeve did exactly what it is designed to do , protect the house in the event a chimney fire takes place , never once suggesting it wouldn't have happened if I hadn't waited 4 years . So THANK YOU all for doing such a wonderful job ! You have made us and my out of town family very happy in making it safe for us to enjoy this holiday with lovely fires , something we / they look forward to on their cold weather visits . May each of you have a very Happy Thanksgiving ! You've certainly made ours !!! Gratefully , Linda & Gill Ramsden
