Chimney Repair & Sweep in South Shore MA
Homeowners who reside in the South Shore area between Framingham and Cape Cod rely on Above & Beyond Chimney Service for certified chimney sweeping, chimney repairs and chimney inspections. We’ve served the South Shore region for more than 20 years. Here’s how we can help you.
The chimney sweeps we send to your home will be certified through the Full Training and fully equipped to remove both creosote and drafting obstructions from your flue.
Creosote, a byproduct of smoke condensation, is a highly flammable substance that clings to the walls of your chimney liner. It’s the cause of most chimney fires in America each year and can only be safely removed with the proper tools and techniques.
Chimney sweeps also clean drafting obstructions from flues. Things like bird and squirrel nests, leaves, twigs, falling fruit and other debris can narrow the flue opening and cause smoke to back up into your home. The biggest danger is carbon monoxide, which is an invisible and odorless gas that is known to be potentially fatal to humans and animals.
Above & Beyond’s chimney repair services will help you keep your South Shore chimney safe and efficient all year long. Our chimney repair work includes:
- Chimney cap repair/replacement with full-width custom chimney caps
- Leaky chimney repair
- Chimney crown repair and seal coating
- Chimney liner repair/installation

- Masonry waterproofing
- Fireplace throat damper and top-mount damper repair/replacement
Along with all chimney repair work, we offer full-scale historic chimney restorations for older South Shore homes.
A chimney with structural damage can quickly turn into a safety hazard. Chimney rebuilding and various masonry work often is necessary to restore safety and functionality.
Chimney rebuilding: When a chimney is falling apart, rebuilding is the answer. Our team can rebuild your chimney from the ground up or in the section where damage exists.
Chimney crown rebuilding: Cracks within the cement chimney crown must be fixed. We offer complete chimney crown rebuilding as well as crown waterproofing when the damage is minor.
Tuckpointing: The process we use to remove decayed mortar and add strong new mortar within your chimney’s masonry is called tuckpointing. This service has saved the lives of many of our customers’ chimneys.
Brick repair or replacement: Spalling (loose or damaged) bricks should not be ignored. We’ll replace and repair bricks to give your chimney back its strength and ability to operate safely.
If it’s been more than a year since your last chimney inspection, it will be in your best interest to schedule one soon. Chimney inspections performed by licensed, certified technicians can spot early signs of damage and malfunction and get the problems solved quickly.
We offer all three universally recognized levels of chimney inspection:
- Level 1: The basic inspection performed annually.
- Level 2: Performed when the home is being sold, when the chimney/fireplace system is being modified, and when damage from a chimney fire or other event is suspected.
- Level 3: An inspection when a previous inspection has turned up significant damage or malfunction.
Wherever you live in the South Shore region of Massachusetts, Above & Beyond Chimney Service is ready year-round to ensure that your chimney is safe and healthy. Learn more about our services or schedule an appointment by calling (781) 383-0415.
