Prefab Chimney Installation:
Many new homes being built since the 90s especially as of late are no longer being built with masonry. Most homes now are built with double wall steel pipes. In addition to many new homes being built this way, in some instances the most reliable and cost efficient way to fix a masonry chimney on an older home is to do away with the old chimney and install new double wall pipe either out the side of the home or up through the ceiling and roof. Hudson River Chimney is certified and knowledgeable to the proper clearance codes and installation methods to get this type of job done for you efficiently.
Chimney Caps / Chimney Covers:
One of the most vital pieces to keep your chimney system in safe working condition is to install a chimney cap. The purpose of chimney caps is to keep rain, potential blockages, and animals outside of your chimney. Many byproducts inside your chimney can mix with water getting in, to cause a chemical reaction that can start to rapidly deteriorate your chimneys lining creating a hazardous condition. All of our trucks regularly stock standard chimney cap sizes and can install these for you at a reasonable price to save your chimney from these dangers and save your family money on avoidable repairs.
