Chimney Sweep Does More Than Chimney Sweep Services

Written by Chad Murray on October 16, 2014

Chimney sweep does more than chimney sweep service. Masters Services does chimney rebuilds, chimney caps, fireplace doors, gas logs, nuisance wildlife removal, and plumbing.

Masters Services has been growing into a complete home services provider for over 18 years. Starting as a local chimney sweep in Dallas and Fort Worth, Masters Services has grown service to Houston, Oklahoma City, and Denver as well.

Masters Services chimney sweep offers quality safety inspections on chimneys and fireplaces. We have IPads or tablets to perform each chimney inspection. Photos of the repairs can be inserted into the chimney inspection to offer a unique look into what repairs are necessary. Once the chimney inspection is completed then the chimney inspection can be emailed to the customer. The days of sooty and sweaty paper invoices are over! If the customer wants any of the work performed that the chimney inspections revealed then they go to their digital estimate and hit the approval button. An email is sent to our call center after the customer approves the estimate. Then the call center will call to schedule the work to be performed.

  • What does Masters Services do more than a normal chimney sweep?

    Chimney Sweeps generally concentrate on safety concerns and easy repairs as a service provider. Larger repairs and corrections are noted but not estimated. Here at Masters Services we provide the service and the contractor services to repair most chimney corrections. For instance if your chimney exterior is spalling so bad that it needs to be rebuilt, Master Services will tear it down and build you a new exterior chimney. A second example is if your wood chimney chase is rotting and needs to be replaced. Masters Services will tear down the old chimney and frame a new chimney, add the siding, add the trim, flash it, seal it, and paint the new chimney chase. A new chimney cap will then be placed on top of the chase.
    Masters Services also sells and installs R.H.Peterson gas logs and fire glass. We offer an excellent selection of appearances for every fireplace design imaginable.
