Certified Technicians Provide Expert Fireplace and Chimney Inspections

Customers requesting a fireplace repair from 1st Choice Chimney want to have a damper, flue and cover that works correctly to ensure that the smoke escapes from the top of a chimney. During a chimney and fireplace inspection, you want to know if there is a layer of creosote that requires removal to prevent internal fires that can lead to property damage or injuries. Our technicians are able to inspect a chimney from a building’s rooftop with a camera to make sure that the metal liner is in good condition.

Expert Fireplace Repair and Smokestack Cleaning


If your home’s chimney doesn’t have a crown or cap, then it is a good idea to have one installed to keep trash, wildlife and moisture from entering the structure. At 1st Choice Chimney, we offer a variety of services in the Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth area, including:

  • Soot removal from fireplaces and chimneys
  • Fireplace repair of grates, masonry brick and refractory panels
  • Color video inspection of chimneys, rooftops and attics

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

We recommend having your fireplace and chimney inspected and cleaned at least once a year, and if you use a fireplace frequently, then contact us twice a year for our services. Our Chimney Institute of America certified chimney sweeps can clean fireplaces and smokestacks from top to bottom to remove dirty soot, greasy creosote and other debris to protect you from carbon monoxide poisoning.
