Services offered by Chimney Sweep Trussville
Inspections: We employ the 21-point safety inspection, guaranteed to locate any hazard or problems that might cause problems for you or your home.
Installations: We offer professional prefabricated or masonry chimney and fireplace installation. Also, we install ash-dump doors, clean-out doors, wood stoves, and more!
Animal Removal: Just like us, humans critters love chimneys. Raccoons, Squirrels, Bats, and many Birds often find themselves stowing away in fireplaces and chimneys. However, when they get into chimneys, they often get stuck, build a nest, or otherwise cause damage. We have trained our technicians to safely and humanely remove these critters for both their safety and yours. As additional insurance, we offer a standard cap installation to keep them out.
Masonry Repairs: We here at Gulf Coast Chimney Sweep Trussville AL are trained to repair masonry: crown repair, flue repair, relining, storm damage, and more!
Water Damage Services: As stated before, water is the arch nemesis of your chimney, and they have many encounters along the Gulf Coast. Besides damage to the masonry, water brings along mold and rust. If you see signs of water damage, it is urgent that you call Gulf Coast Chimney Sweep Trussville to handle it right.
Creosote Removal: Also explained before, creosote is a real danger to your home. It is the number one cause of chimney fires and can prove harmful even when not ablaze. We will make sure that it is removed without causing harm to you or your home.
The first European settler to establish residence in the area was Warren Truss, who entered the area with his brothers and constructed a grist mill on the Cahaba River in 1821. Truss was a North Carolina man of English descent. Trussville remained an agricultural community until after the Civil War, when the Alabama-Chattanooga Railway was built through the city. By 1886 a blast furnace was built on what is now the site of the new Cahaba Elementary School. Trussville was listed as an incorporated community on the 1890 and 1900 U.S. Census rolls. At some point after 1900 until its reincorporation in 1947, it did not appear on census records.
Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum
Where else in the world can you see 900+ mint-condition motorcycles on exhibit at one time? Nowhere. The Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum is recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s largest motorcycle collection. With over 1,600 motorcycles spanning over 100 years of production, the Barber collection represents 220 different manufacturers from 22 countries. Showcasing the unique design of each individual piece, this epic display reveals the fine art of the motorcycle. But that’s not all. The museum also features the world’s most extensive collection of Lotus cars, plus an assortment of other rare and unusual cars.
Southern Museum of Flight
With the approach of the centennial celebration of the city of Birmingham in the mid 1960s, a civic committee began working on projects that would tell the story of the first 100 years of the City of Birmingham. Mrs. Mary Alice Beatty, who, with her husband, Donald Beatty had been pioneers in the establishment of the first airline routes and bases in Central and South America, felt that the Aviation History of Birmingham should be included in these projects.
The Committee’s goal was to establish a regional air museum, to be called The Southeastern Museum of Aviation, and Mrs. Beatty was placed in charge of the project with $400 appropriated for expenses. Using the Beatty’s own collection of memorabilia as a basis, in 1966 she established the first displays in six display cases. Samford University offered space for the displays, which, by that time, was called The Birmingham Museum of Aviation. The displays remained at Samford for three years, during which time Mrs. Beatty was the curator. Mrs. Beatty then moved the displays to a location closer to the airport, using the main lobby of the Birmingham Airport Motel, which stood at the location of the present short-term parking deck across the street from the old terminal.
Michael & Tim came out for Sootmaster today and what a blessing they were. So friendly, polite and professional. They did an excellent job of sweeping our chimney and repairing the refractor. Left everything very clean. Would definitely use them again. Excellent service!
Called to see if I could get a chimney inspection and I’m thankful I did. We have an older house and we’ve been having issues with odor especially after it rains. We were able to schedule a full repair. The two technicians that showed up on time very helpful and very nice. My wife and I highly recommend Gulf Coast Chimney Sweep.
Excellent customer service and excellent quality. I would like to take Harley and the very helpful technician that came out and gave us a chimney sweep and inspection. We highly recommend this company for anybody in the Pace area.
