Smalling Masonry installed a crown on our 95 year old chimney. The work took 2 half-days, which I thought was remarkably fast given the scaffolding required. They also repaired some tuck pointing and sprayed the entire chimney with protective sealant. The installers were very professional and knowledgeable. I would absolutely hire them if I needed chimney work in the future.

The service men were polite, professional, thorough, and respectful. They pointed out an issue that will cause further water damage, so we can have resolved. We are very happy with the results of the services. We will definitely recommend Smalling Masonry to our neighbors.

Caleb and Josh were professional. They kept me informed the entire time. Their recommendations were clear. They were also very neat as they cleaned my fireplace and inspected my chimney. I highly recommend Smalling.

Had to have my liner replaced in my chimney today. The two young men from Smalling Masonary were knowledgeable and skilled at their jobs. Very courteous and polite too. Job was completed timely and cleaned up after themselves. Very pleased with their work.

I used Smalling Masonry to inspect and make needed repairs on the chimney and refacing the interior fireplace with stone plus installing an electric fireplace insert. We moved away from the wood-burning fireplace. From start to finish the service is what you’d expect when trusting a contractor to do work on your home. Jacob was so helpful and patient with me during the estimate process, even when I made changes. The install took the 3 days they estimated, with much fewer hours on day 2 & 3! I can’t say enough good things about the Lead Tech (Carl) and Crew (Quint). Great teamwork, punctual, professional, great communication about the job progress, and a clean worksite. Thank you Smalling Masonry.

Save Money & Skip the Line With an Annual Maintenance Plan

With our maintenance plans, we will proactively schedule a check-up each year. This includes an inspection and, if needed, a sweeping. According to the NFPA, every fireplace should be inspected annually to ensure that your system is functioning properly and is suitable for your families use.

We will look for any gaps or cracks that could leak fumes or gases into the home or anything that would be an increased fire risk. We will also check the structure of your chimney and look for any potential points of moisture entry. If your system happens to be new or new products have been used for repair, then our maintenance will also ensure your system is in full compliance with manufacturer warranties.

Additional benefits of our maintenance plans include:

  • 15% discount off our regular sweep/inspection price


  • Locked-in low annual price
  • No price increase on your sweep/inspection


  • Appointment reminders two weeks in advance
