Louis Lee – Owner, Certified Chimney Sweep
“I want to take care of your investment by fixing the issues related to your fireplace, chimney, and roofing needs. All of our estimates, and work, comply with the specifications of the National Fire Protection Association Codebook 211. This is the national standard for chimneys, fireplaces and venting. We are tested on International Building Code 2015 edition for seismic retrofitting (earthquakes), and The American Masonry Institute standards of proper masonry water proofing repair. We are also an EPA trained lead-based paint renovation certified firm, for those toxic, lead based painted chimneys out there”.
To our knowledge, no other company in the Portland Metro area carries and maintains all four of these credentials. The owner, Louis Lee, is also the youngest President ever motioned into office in the history of the Oregon Chimney Sweep Association. Every May, he proctors an exam test for the association for new companies who want to become certified to increase the quality and integrity of work provided in the trade.
