Founder, Walter Clarke

Capitol Chimney is a name you can trust when it comes to chimneys, fireplaces, dryer vents, and more. We’ve been serving Texas families for over 20 years. Our owner and operator, Walter Clarke, and his family have been in the chimney cleaning and repair industry for even longer than that.

Because Walter is a Texan with a family of his own, he understands how important safety is to any homeowner. Walter has raised children, so his priorities are in line with your own — safety and cleanliness first. 

Capitol Chimney has seen what an unmaintained chimney or dryer vent is capable of: Chimney fires can smolder for hours unnoticed. Birds’ nests can clog up a dryer vent, rendering it inoperable. And trees and roofing can catch fire due to a faulty chimney cap. We have the eye for detail and the experience needed to locate and fix the problem. We always do so as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Walter respects your home and belongings. No matter what service we provide, we will never leave a mess behind. We aim to meet the high standards of comfort, safety, and trust expected by our neighbors in both Austin and New Braunfels.

Why Capitol Chimney?

We realize you have choices when selecting a company to provide chimney, fireplace or dryer vent services. For all of these services, safety is the highest priority, so please choose a company that employs experienced professionals and provides them with the tools and ongoing training to ensure your family’s well-being. Here are some reasons why we think Capitol Chimney deserves your consideration:

  • We know what we’re doing—we have 25+ years of experience inspecting all types of chimneys in Central Texas, and we have the specialized tools and training to get the job done right and ensure your family’s safety.
  • We respect your time and property—we show up when we say we will and leave your house looking like we were never even there (or better).
  • We’re a safety-first company—chimney inspections are all about identifying and addressing safety issues in the best possible way to ensure you have “peace of mind” when using your fireplace.  That’s what we’re all about.
  • We’re from here—after working in Central Texas for multiple decades, we fully understand the construction, wildlife, wood, and weather issues that can impact the safe operation of your chimney now and down the road.
  • We’re bonded and insured—we take every safety precaution imaginable, but the fact is, our techs are on rooftops or going up ladders every day. For that reason, we take the health and safety of our team members very seriously and have taken the proper steps to ensure that their well-being is our responsibility, not yours.
  • We’re not happy unless you’re happy—we’ve built our business on our customers’ kind words and referrals, so we do everything we can to ensure our customers are happy.

Our Satisfaction Guarantee

We want to exceed our customers’ expectations and always provide high-quality service. If you don’t feel we have delivered what we promised, we want to make things right.

If you experience any problems related to your chimney cleaning or inspection within 12 months, contact us, and we’ll work to address your concerns at no additional cost.

Pricing and Estimates

We want to be completely upfront and transparent about our pricing and fees. In some specific cases, we can give you an estimate over the phone. However, since most situations are unique, we’ll usually need an in-person inspection to ensure we have the information needed for an accurate estimate.

Once we get your approval, we’ll schedule your service call as soon as possible. As you might expect, we are busiest during colder seasons, so you’ll have an easier time getting an appointment in the warmer months.
