About us

Homestead Chimney Sweep is a small business in Western NC.  By small I mean one person, me.  My name is Rene' Uhalde.  I am a Certified Chimney sweep with state of the art sweeping and inspection equipment.  My punctuality, honesty, and professionalism reflect my intention to earn your business year after year.  The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) states "Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year...."    

Homestead Chimney Sweep offers competitive rates for chimney cleaning, Level I and Level II inspections.  Homestead Chimney Sweep uses state of the art video inspection equipment and A HEPA filtered commercial vacuum to keep your house clean and dust free!   

Additional Services:

Chimney exterior cleaning and waterproofing, Chimney cap sales, installation and crown repair.  HCS can also give you an estimate to reline your existing chimney with stainless steel, or to install a free standing wood stove with a Class A chimney system!  

HCS is proud to be both a dealer and installer of Tulikivi Soapstone masonry heaters.  In our moderate climate it is possible to heat a well insulated area on as little as one 3 hour fire per day!  Follow the link below to learn more about Tulikivi.
