We’ve had a contractor out here who suggested that we install a power vent on the top of the chimney. Another guy told us this was not a good idea and that we should make out chimney taller…
Smoke May Come Down Your Chimney Because…

There are literally dozens of causes which could lead to the trouble of the nature you’re describing. But because of something you said when you were describing the problem; we’d like you to try a couple things before you go any further with this.
If the fireplace used to work, but doesn’t work now, then we’d suggest having the interior linings of the chimney scoped to check for structural problems or animal activity such as nesting. If you have never done this before, then you should definitely

We use photo-diagrams to detail every aspect of the work we’ll do, with specifics regarding materials used and procedures.
We Offer A High Level Of Expertise
Having spent over $5,000 for our people to learn about chimney physics and engineering, our certifications include Master Cement Finisher & Master of Masonry, (Minneapolis registry, #M127), and two certifications from the Ahrens School of Masonry Restoration and Chimney repair. We are certified by The Chimney Safety Institute of America.
We offer a full range of chimney repair services including complete rebuilds, rebuilding from the roof up, chimney lined replacement, tuck pointing, installing flue top dampers, and minor repairs.
Attention To Detail
The little things we do make a big difference. For example, we use a comprehensive guide to match our mortar colors to the existing mortar on your chimney.
Prevent Water Leaks
- We inspect the flashing around your chimney to make sure it’s code compliant. If it’s not, we strip down all remnants of the old flashing down to the roofing underlayment and then do a proper “build-back” with a complete, three-part system that is guaranteed not to leak.
- We put a drip ledge on your chimney cap so that water doesn’t run straight down the side.
Increased Protection Against Chimney Fires
- We always use fire-resistant refractory mortar when installing clay tile flue liners.
- We isolate chimney flues from the cap so that they have room to expand without creating cracks that could lead to chimney fires.
Extend The Life Of Your Chimney:
- We build your chimney cap out of specially modified concrete. This makes our caps far superior to the concrete chimney caps that are typically installed.
- As a result of our continuing education in the latest concrete techniques, we also use a special additive to further strengthen our concrete caps.

“We had a stone chimney where the stone top had deteriorated. It was a complicated fix, and the Dayco crew did an amazing job. They did all the stone cutting themselves, and it looks beautiful.”
