For more than 30 years, we’ve served the San Bernardino, CA, area with all the services you need for your chimney and fireplace. Here’s how we can help you.
Regular chimney inspections are the best way to ensure that your chimney and fireplace are safe and in good shape. Ye Olde Brit offers all three levels of chimney inspection as outlined by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA).
When we inspect your San Bernardino chimney, our trained technicians will be able to spot early signs of wear and damage, so you can have it repaired promptly and correctly.
Most chimney fires every year are started by creosote igniting in the chimney flue. Creosote, which is highly flammable, builds up with the use of a wood-burning fireplace and must be professionally cleaned.
Our crew uses a variety of brushes, scrubbers, rotating rods and other equipment to remove creosote and reduce the chance of a fire. We also remove any debris from trees or animals that may be blocking the smoke passage.
We provide a full menu of chimney repair services for all our San Bernardino customers.
- Chimney leak repair

If any component is too damaged to repair, we’ll replace it.
Chimney Masonry Repair
Minor damage can often be resolved with tuckpointing, which replaces decayed mortar. Brick replacement is another option when damage is minor.
When clay tile chimney liners begin to fail, the safest way to address the problem is to use HeatShield.
This includes re-coating the entire flue to cover up broken tiles or vulnerable spaces where tiles are missing. Restore safety to your chimney with HeatShield.
Protecting the top opening of your chimney flue is important. That’s the job of chimney caps, flue covers and chimney chase tops. When these components are damaged, water can run into the flue and interior areas of the chimney and cause serious and expensive problems. We repair or replace caps, covers and chase tops.
If your clothes dryer is taking too long to dry clothes, it’s a sign that you may need to have your dryer vent cleaned. Dryer vent cleaning gives your machine more power, helps reduce utility bills and keeps your dryer running longer without burning out.
Let us help you choose the perfect new gas, electric or wood fireplace or stove for your home. Get the perfect appliance to satisfy your decorative tastes and heating needs.
