About Us

Since 1993, Chimney Keepers has been cleaning and repairing chimneys, dryer vents, and gas log fireplaces in and around the Raleigh, Apex, Cary, Garner, Clayton, Fuquay-Varina, and Holly Springs, NC areas.

Hello, I am Will Gilfillan, owner and operator of Chimney Keepers. I am a member of the N.C. Chimney Sweep Association and a Firefighter with the Town of Cary Fire Department.

While we are not required to join the N.C. Chimney Sweep Association, we did so to help keep us up to date on the latest changes in building codes, to have access to regular training, and to have a knowledge base of other members we can tap into when confronted with a strange situation not seen before.

As members, we abide by the NCCSA Code of Ethics. So, rest assured that you are getting a true professional who can get the job done right.

Our Chimney Services:
We clean chimneys, replace rusted prefab chimney tops, install chimney caps, repair and rebuild damaged fireboxes, repair cracked chimney crowns, power wash and apply water repellent treatment to chimneys, deal with water leaks in chimneys, as well as clean and repair gas log fireplaces. We also clean electric and gas dryer vents and much more.

Products We Sell:
Replacement glass for fireplace doors, chimney caps, lock top/top mount dampers, replacement mesh screen for the old rusty ones on fireplace openings, and more.

Insurance and Service Rates:
The mess involved in chimney cleaning is always a concern. Have no fear! We have comprehensive general liability insurance and worker’s comp. You will find us to be very reliable and our prices very competitive. We strive to keep our service standards high and prices fair. Additional pricing information is provided under our service descriptions, and you are welcome to call the office for information as well.

The office manager, Sarah, has been a great addition to the company in helping to provide quality customer service. She is the voice you get when you call our office (919-772-8110). She schedules all of the appointments and manages the office and the home all while looking fabulous. You can contact her at chimneykeepers@gmail.com.

PS: she is the wife and mother boss of the house. 🙂

We provide services to Raleigh, Garner, Clayton, Cary, Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs and surrounding areas.

Mission Statement:
Chimney Keepers strives to provide the highest level of service and integrity in our work and, above all, provide outstanding customer satisfaction and value.  That’s our promise to you.

    To


    Sarah and Will Gilfillan

    Owning and operating Chimney Keepers for 27 years has been a very rewarding experience, and we have enjoyed the relationships we have built with our customers. We are now starting a new chapter and are selling the business to one of our Technicians. Though we will miss the many relationships and friendships we have built over the years, Karen and I are looking forward to traveling full time in our Airstream as we explore the nooks and crannies of North America.

    We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Will and Sarah Gilfillan, who will be taking over Chimney Keepers as of March 30, 2020. Rest assured, Will has been well trained (by Carl!) and is very competent, with nearly four years of experience in the gas log/fireplace/ chimney service industry and over ten years as a firefighter. Sarah, the Office Manager/wife is a fast learner, and will do wonders in assisting you with scheduling appointments and answering questions. It was important to us to find a good fit for our customers, and we feel confident that you will find Will and Sarah to be knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.

    Thank you for your business over the years. It was my distinct pleasure to have been of service to you, and I wish you continued success and prosperity in the years to come.

    Sincerely, Karen and Carl Newton

  • Is Your Wood-burning or Gas-burning Fireplaces ready for Winter?

    Is your Fireplace or Gas Log unit ready to go? If not, or for a service, give us a call.

    During a power outage, a fireplace or gas log unit may be your only form of heat, so make sure they are working in top form. Give us a call to set up an appointment, 919-772-8110.

    PS: If you do NOT have a Carbon Monoxide detector and you have gas logs, GET ONE… NOW… We recommend the combination CO/Smoke, battery-powered, detectors found at Lowe’s, Home Depot, or most hardware stores.

    If yours are over 10 years old, replace them (there’s a date on back). If there is not a date of manufacture on the back, GET rid of it.
