Chimney Repair

Capital Local Services is ready to assist with all your chimney repair needs. If you notice any chimney venting issues, reach out to us so our professional chimney technicians can take a look.

Many home and building owners don’t pay as much attention to the chimney as it should. After all, it’s almost out of sight and works quietly in the background. If you have a solid fuel-burning stove or a fireplace, your chimney serves a vital role in ventilation. When it is broken or not working properly, this could be a safety risk.

We provide a range of services to our clients in the Burien area, including chimney sweeping and inspections. During the required annual chimney inspection, we closely examine the outside and inside of your chimney. Our experienced technicians make a note of any damages and pressing repair and maintenance needs and make recommendations. 

There is a range of repairs that your chimney may need, and Capital Local Services has a certified team of chimney technicians ready to help.

Not many people fully understand the inner workings of a chimney, so it is crucial to seek professional help if you detect that something is amiss. There could be any number of issues that are causing your chimney to malfunction. Additionally, during the recommended annual inspection, we can also pick up future repair and maintenance requirements.


Common chimney issues include:


  • Poor venting
  • Poor draft
  • Internal corrosion
  • Blocked flues


Most of the repair work we carry out is either in the firebox or on the roof. Over time and with exposure to high temperatures and extreme weather conditions, various chimney parts can begin to deteriorate and fall apart. This affects the normal function of the chimney and the safety of the building.

Our team regularly conducts many different chimney repair services. Whether you need some minor repairs or chimney restoration work, we can help. Here are some of the most common repair jobs we work on:

  • Crown repair: The chimney crown prevents water from entering the chimney. If this is damaged, water can enter and cause corrosion to the structure and other extensive damage. 
  • Tuckpointing: If there is loose mortar between the bricks, this process restores the mortar.
  • Flashing seal
  • Masonry repair on the roof, which can include crown repair, tuckpointing, and flashing seal
  • Sheet metal work on the roof
  • Leaky chimney repairs: Water damage can affect the roof, chimney, and attic and cause serious and expensive problems

We have experience working with all kinds of chimneys, including masonry, brick, fireplace, and factory-built chimneys. We offer a range of services such as chimney repair and maintenance, chimney sweeping and cleaning, and annual inspections as per industry guidelines.

Most people use their dryers regularly but without much thought about what goes on internally. The dryer turns clothes around and dries them using very hot air temperatures. As you know, clothes give off volumes of fiber and lint, so cleaning your lint tray is important. Lint also builds up in the vent over time, and you cannot see this as it happens. Cleaning the tray alone may not be sufficient, so we recommend that you have your dryer vent cleaned every year. 

Our team of experienced technicians regularly provide dryer vent cleaning services to keep you and your family safe. A damaged or dirty dryer vent can lead to a pressure buildup, which can trigger a fire.  

Electric dryers are known to be a major cause of home fires that are laundry-related. The combination of the high heating element and the lint released from the clothes can trigger a fire in the dryer vent.

Dry vent cleaning mitigates this risk so that you can use your electric dryer safely and without fear of fire. Learn more about our dryer vent cleaning approach.

At Capital Local Services, we recognize that our clients need a vast array of residential maintenance, repair, and inspection work. When we conduct an inspection, be it for your dryer vent or chimney, we make it thorough. We note any areas of malfunction or damage and present our clients with a full evaluation. Routine inspections are useful to help you detect problems early on and avoid safety risks and potential fires.

When you conduct us, we first inspect before we start cleaning the dryer vent. The next thing we do is remove the lint from the duct using a brush and high-velocity air. Once the cleaning process is complete, the efficiency of the dryer increases. The vent system also flows better when the air is clean of lint and other particles and fibers.

There may be many residential cleaning and maintenance services in Burien, but there is only one Capital Local Services. Our main point of difference is the basket of related services we offer to our valued customers. Our technicians are certified and experienced in the area they work in.

Most people look into air duct cleaning to deal with dust and other particles that have made the home air ducts dirty. Cleaning the ducts is hoped to clean up the air in the ductwork and air in the home.

The EPA advises that the as-needed approach is a better way to proceed. Respiratory diseases and breathing difficulties are just two possible motivating factors to consider.
