We Also Serve the Washington, DC Area

History is such a huge part of Washington, DC’s culture, and the beautiful and historical architecture that runs throughout the city is a constant reminder of that fact. And those historic buildings – from simple Federal row homes to more ornate Victorians and Tudors – often come with historic chimneys and fireplaces that need care from expert technicians.

Winston’s Chimney Service has been offering full-service chimney care in the DC Metro Area since our start, and our technicians specialize in properly handling the unique needs of beautiful and valued historic chimney systems.

We’ve worked with hundreds of DC homeowners to keep their chimney systems functioning as safely and efficiently as possible, offering everything from annual chimney inspections to full restoration jobs. We serve the following DC zip codes:

20001, 20002, 20003, 20004, 20005, 20006, 20007, 20008, 20009, 20010, 20011, 20012, 20013, 20014, 20015, 20016, 20017, 20018, 20019, 20020, 20021, 20022, 20023, 20024, 20025, 20026, 20027, 20028, 20029, 20030, 20031, 20032, 20033, 20034, 20035, 20036, 20037, 20038, 20039, 20040, 20041, 20042, 20043, 20044, 20045, 20046, 20047, 20048, 20049, 20050, 20051, 20052, 20053, 20054, 20055, 20056, 20057, 20058, 20059, 20060, 20061, 20062, 20063, 20064, 20065, 20066, 20067, 20068, 20069, 20070, 20071, 20072, 20073, 20074, 20075, 20076, 20077, 20078, 20079, 20080, 20081, 20082, 20083, 20084, 20085, 20086, 20087, 20088, 20089, 20090, 20091, 20092, 20093, 20094, 20095, 20096, 20097, 20098, 20099

What Are Common Services Required for Historic Fireplaces & Chimneys?

A few of the more common services we’ve provided for historic homeowners in the area include:

Chimney Liner Repair And Relining

There are three particular liner issues we commonly come across with older chimneys: damaged clay tile liners, flues that are improperly sized to vent newer appliances, and chimneys that are missing a liner completely. It’s key, for safety and performance, to have a properly-sized and functional flue liner in place. 

We can install, replace, and repair liners, depending on your chimney’s needs. Ask us about installing a new stainless steel liner, or we can explore your options with HeatShield®. No matter your preferences or budget, we’re certain we can find the best solution for your unique situation.

Tuckpointing Damaged Masonry

Bricks, by and large, have a longer service life than mortar. When mortar joints begin to fail – whether it’s from eroding, cracking, or receding – a chimney’s stability, functionality, and ability to fight off water intrusion are compromised. To repair that kind of damage, we can tuckpoint the joints, removing the damaged mortar, replacing it with new mortar, and forming strong and new joints.

Here’s the thing, though. Sometimes, matching old mortar to new products can be a challenge – and this is especially true for historic systems which were built with materials now decades old. Trusting our experts to get things right is a must for maintaining that classic and timeless look and feel.

And at the end of it all, ask us about our waterproofing services. These ensure your bricks avoid soaking in water down the line and stay free from corrosion, deterioration, and the harmful freeze/thaw process.

Chimney & Fireplace Restoration

Restoring an older chimney system can include everything from replacing damaged parts to bringing the whole system up to modern performance standards. Winston’s techs will carefully and thoroughly inspect your system, then work with your needs and budget to develop a plan to restore your fireplace and/or chimney to even better than its former glory.

Long story short, if you have a historic chimney that you’re unwilling to put in the hands of just anyone, stress no further – our team is confident in their ability to handle it all.

Don’t Wait! Schedule your appointment today.

We Install, Maintain & Repair Modern Chimney Systems Too

Winston’s isn’t just focused on historic chimney systems – we routinely install and work on new masonry and factory-built systems, as well. Count on us for the following services:

Sweepings & Inspections

Every chimney and venting system – whether it’s old, new, an insert, a stove, a fireplace, wood-burning, gas-fueled, or something else – should be inspected annually by a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) certified sweep. That way, should hidden damages or issues be lingering, your tech can get them addressed before you start lighting fires for the year.

In addition, sweepings should be performed regularly to ensure the venting system isn’t clogged up or filled with flammable creosote. Buildup and obstructions can lead to fire hazards, gas leaks, inefficiency, and more – definitely all things you want to avoid.

Fireplace Installations

Adding a new system to your home? Whether you’re starting from scratch or looking to upgrade, we’re here to help. We install fireplaces, inserts, and stoves, and we can set you up right with the venting system you need, as well, ensuring your new setup runs as safely and as efficiently as possible.

Keep in mind that incorrect fireplace installations can result in numerous hazards, and you won’t get the heat you’re hoping for at the end of it all, either. Trust our certified and experienced pros to get the job done right from the very start, so you can stress less year after year.

Chimney & Fireplace Restoration

There are lots of reasons to restore a fireplace, whether it’s to boost efficiency, improve the safety of your home, increase your home’s value, change fuel types, prevent further damage, or something else. One thing’s true for any repair, restoration, or rebuild job – trusting us for the job is a must.

We’ll ensure all proper protocols and procedures are followed, keeping your local coding needs and regulations in mind throughout the entire process. Turn this notoriously stressful job over to us, so you can rest easier through it all.

Chimney & Fireplace Repairs

We’re a full-service chimney company, which means we offer a comprehensive list of chimney and fireplace repair services. With us, you’re always taken care of. Rely on us for the following:

  • Masonry Repairs

Tankless Water Heater Installations

If it’s time to replace your current tank-style water heater, consider upgrading to a tankless water heater. These systems are known for their heightened efficiency and energy savings, heating water only as you need it – and never running out of it, either!

Though upfront costs for these systems are usually on the higher end, they tend to save homeowners significant dollars on energy costs over time – and they last twice as long as traditional options too. If you’re ready to make the switch, book with us today.

Why Are Certifications Important in the Chimney Industry?

If you own a fireplace, having a well-maintained chimney is a must. These systems require annual inspections, regular sweepings, quality repairs, and more to operate correctly and safely, and when it comes to lighting a fire in your home, cutting corners simply isn’t an option. 

Because of this, hiring uncertified professionals can pose a significant risk to your property – and those living on it, as well.

It’s an unfortunate truth, then, that the chimney industry isn’t very well regulated. Some trades require professionals to have certain certifications or licenses, but when it comes to chimneys, things aren’t so strict. Someone who feels qualified enough can simply get a business license, buy some equipment, then claim to offer the best services around.

So, how can you know who to trust? Well, certifications will definitely play a big role in the decision process, playing a vital role in ensuring the professionals you hire possess the knowledge, skills, and expertise to keep your system in the best shape possible.

What is the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)?

If a tech is certified with the CSIA, they’re demonstrating a commitment to being the best they can be for their entire service area. The CSIA is a nonprofit organization run by a board of volunteer directors and chimney experts, and it’s nationally recognized for helping sweeps improve their knowledge and stay up to date on industry news and trends.

Becoming certified with the CSIA requires engaging in training courses, passing a rigorous examination, and signing a strict code of ethics. In addition, techs should be investing in continuous ongoing educational opportunities, and they’ll need to recertify every three years to keep their credential current and valid.

Like we said, if your tech is CSIA certified, then they’re truly committed to being the best that they can be for their customer base. Rest assured, this is one certification Winston’s Chimney Service is proud to hold.

What is the National Fireplace Institute (NFI)?

At Winston’s, we’re also proud to be NFI certified. What does this mean? Like the CSIA, the NFI is nationally recognized for its training and educational programs. Focusing on installation procedures and practices, the NFI aims to keep homeowners safer by training sweeps to properly install a wide range of hearth products.

What is the Fireplace Investigation, Research & Education Service (F.I.R.E.)?

When it comes to certifications, our experts leave no stone unturned. Because of this, we’ve earned our F.I.R.E. certification, as well. This has given us a better understanding of building codes, manufacturer guidelines, inspection methodology, troubleshooting, and more. Earning the certification requires 48 hours of training, additional homework, and the passing of an exhaustive examination.

Does Winston’s Have Industry Memberships?

You bet. In addition to our many certifications, we’re also members of esteemed organizations like the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the Mid-Atlantic Chimney Association, and more.

Why are memberships important in the chimney industry?

So, how do these memberships help us better serve communities in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and the DC area?

Memberships promote growth and professional development, allowing chimney techs the opportunity to share knowledge and resources, collaborate on projects, and advocate for the industry’s best interests. Memberships also offer access to the latest industry trends, provide networking opportunities, and introduce a range of educational resources.

As members of many organizations, the techs here at Winston’s are able to attend conferences, workshops, and other events to meet and collaborate with other professionals in the field – and throughout it, we’ve formed valuable relationships that ultimately help us serve our customer base better and better with every year.
