Beautiful & Durable Historic Restoration Services

History is a huge part of our culture here in upstate South Carolina, from historic buildings in downtown Greenville, Anderson and Spartanburg to the similar sites in our more intimate communities like Fountain Inn, Laurens and Clinton. The many beautifully-renovated historic homes in our area lend to the upstate’s unique personality and charm. At Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps, we know that maintaining the classic look of these historic homes is important, and proper restoration of the chimney systems in these buildings is a key component of doing that right.

Restoring A Historic Chimney Takes Experience And Skill

Restoring the chimney on a historic home is very different from repairing a modern chimney. Careful consideration must be given as to which materials and processes will bring the chimney up to the level of function expected in modern homes, without damaging the historic look or undermining the structural integrity.

Materials used for masonry chimneys in historic homes are very different from the masonry materials we use today. In years past, chimneys were generally built using a lime-based mortar that worked well to accommodate the contraction and expansion of the day’s softer, more porous brick. Around the 1930s, it became more common to use much harder bricks and much harder and less porous cement. If you were to repair a historic chimney using materials that didn’t properly account for the properties of those older materials, you’d have obvious-looking repairs, or worse, a significantly weakened chimney.

An Unlined Chimney Is An Unsafe Chimney

Many chimneys in homes that date back to 1930 and earlier were also built without a chimney liner. An unlined chimney is far riskier, and fails to meet current code requirements as well. In order for a historic chimney to conform to current codes and the level of safety expected in modern chimneys, Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps will need to install a proper chimney liner.

We Can Restore Your Historic Chimney’s Look

If years of use have left you with a stained and sooty fireplace and chimney, we can help restore the aesthetic appeal, too, with smoke stain removal services.

Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps’ technicians are trained to address these issues and any other repair or restoration needs that might come up with your historic chimney. If your chimney needs work, give us a call!

We Can Help To Improve Your Historic Chimney’s Energy Efficiency

Throat dampers are common in older chimneys, but many older fireplaces were designed without dampers. New  top-sealing dampers completely seal the flue off when it’s not in use, drastically limiting the amount of air transfer between your home and the outdoors. Talk to us about the energy-saving benefits of having a top-sealing damper installed!
