Full chimney sweeping

A full, professional chimney sweeping is essential and required by your insurance, not simply an outside chimney sweeping. Our teams (1 technician and 1 apprentice) clean the chimney of your heating system, fireplace or woodstove from top to bottom, providing impeccable work.

In addition, the hearth of your fireplace, the firebox, the smoke chamber and air regulator as well as your woodstove and all chimney connectors are cleaned. At the same time, we perform a visual inspection of your chimney and we give you a summary report of the state of your system.

We use cutting-edge professional equipment designed especially for our industry, such as commercial vacuums and turbines to guarantee you a job well done and no dirt in your home.

Chimney caps

A chimney cap is needed for each conduit to prevent the interior of the chimney from deteriorating due to rain. They are also essential to eliminate bird, squirrel, racoon and bat nests.

Equipped with a spark arrestor, they also safeguard against escaping embers and correct certain problems with combustion gas flow reversals. Did you know that steel caps generally rust from the inside due to gas condensation? Out of concern for our clients, we only offer stainless steel caps with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty in order to avoid traces of rust runoff on the chimney or roof.

metal chimney crown cover installation

If your chimney does not have a concrete top or the top is cracked due to erosion and to prevent water from getting into the brick structure of your chimney, the professional Joyeux Ramoneur team will install a metal crown or Galvalume damper (choice of colours available) or one in high-quality stainless steel.

Fireplace doors

Did you know that a high-quality custom-made fireplace door pays for itself, as well as making your fireplace safer? After an evening sitting by the fire, the air regulator (flue) cannot be closed.

When the fire goes out, the chimney is hot overnight, meaning it is highly active and sucking hot air out of your house. All the heat that your fireplace provided will literally go up the chimney twofold or threefold overnight if you do not have custom-made fireplace doors.

Security is greatly enhanced due to doors with built-in spark arrestors, which prevent embers or logs from falling out of the fireplace. A large variety of models and finishes are available.

Built-in woodstove

Is your stone fireplace not very efficient? Is your fireplace chimney damaged? Installing a built-in woodstove in your existing fireplace is an economical, durable and low-energy solution. Our built-in woodstoves are clean-burning and give off intense heat with minimal wood usage.

All our built-in woodstove models exceed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards, which will be tomorrow's Canadian standards. The Happy Sweeper is ready today.

Interior restoration of brick or stone chimneys by adding a rigid or flexible liner.

This type of solution is perfect when the inside of a chimney is cracked or crumbling and in short, can no longer be safely used. To correct this situation, we install a rigid or flexible stainless steel liner.

Exterior brick or stone chimney restoration

We specialize in brick rehabilitation, ranging from simply repointing joints, up to complete chimney rebuilds. There is a major difference between building a brick wall and a chimney.

Chimneys are the only structure that stand out and are not protected by the roof or the flashing. This difference translates into a wide range of details, which must be found in a well built chimney, particularly a concrete cap with a drip edge, an expansion joint, etc.

These are details that few masons are familiar with, which will allow your brick or stone chimney to stand the test of time over decades.

Safety and prevention

Because you and your family's security depend on the condition of your chimney, don't take any risks.

For professional service, deal only with certified chimneysweeps, such as The Happy Sweeper. Your chimney may appear to be in excellent condition from the outside, but on the inside, it may be in very poor shape.

An annual inspection and cleaning are essential to determine the status of your fireplace and chimney. We will provide you with an official receipt, recognized by most insurance companies.
