American Chimney has provided chimney repair and installation of a gas fireplace insert. They coordinated with the gas company, City of Portland, worked with tough and changing schedules, and consistently let us know all details and kept us in the loop. The office staff and technicians were always on time, responsive, professional, and friendly. Highly recommend American Chimney!

I have worked with American Chimney and Masonry twice now. Once to repair my chimney and the other to install a gas fireplace. On both occasions they did fantastic professional work. Other local companies gave me highball quotes to demolish and rebuild the chimney completely. Because of this American Chimney was less expensive as they found that the full demo was not necessary. They did quality work, were always on time and I am very satisfied. Steve, the GM is very professional and ensures that his workers are licensed and certified and everyone that I’ve interacted with is very professional. Dennis did an excellent job with the Gas furnace. I’m glad that I have had the experience of working with them. They are an A+ outfit in my book.

Used them to clean and make some minor repairs to our chimney, as well as install a gas insert. They had a fair price compared to the other places we looked, they were responsive and easy to work with, and did efficient work while at my house.

I would hire them again if I needed other chimney work (though I hope I don’t have to since most/all of the work has 10+ year guarantees).

The entire experience was fabulous. At my initial phone contact with them, they provided all the information I needed to make a decision about the installation of the fireplace insert. The estimate was precise and well done. Schedules were kept, and the experience was friendly and competent in every way. Would highly recommend this company.

Steven was extremely polite and knowledgeable. I have a center built fireplace in a bungalow house built in 1925. He assessed and explained what it would take to either make it a safe wood burning fireplace or to do an enclosed gas fireplace insert and the steps and estimates to do each option. When I decide what to do next, I will definitely be having them back to do the work.

Chase Covers

Your chase protects your prefabricated chimney, and your chase cover is a key part of that protection. 

Rusted and corroded chase covers often contribute to chimney leaks and chimney damage. 

If your chase cover is damaged, we can replace it with a new one that is built to provide decades of water protection. 

Learn more here.

Top-Sealing Dampers

Old throat dampers contribute to energy loss in a big way, since their metal plates can’t tightly close off the flue. 

Top-sealing dampers, on the other hand, provide an airtight seal, increasing home energy efficiency and offering considerable protection against water intrusion — which is a pretty big deal here in Portland. 

Learn more about the benefits of top-sealing dampers here.
