Review Our Business

About Advanced Chimney Techniques

Advanced Chimney Techniques, Inc. was founded in 1986 by the certified sweep and licensed Master Mechanical Contractor Dale Deraps. We are a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), Advanced Chimney Team - Elkton MD - Ace Chimney Sweeps National Fireplace Institute (NFI), and Missouri Propane Association-certified company, and we are also members of the Missouri National Chimney Sweep Guild. In our 35+ years in the industry, our goal has always been to provide customers in Central Missouri with high-quality chimney care at affordable prices.

We are located in Jamestown, and we care about our neighbors in Columbia, Jefferson City, Sedalia, throughout Central Missouri. That’s why our technicians work so hard to keep chimneys and heating appliances working efficiently. The security and warmth of you and your family is our number one priority, always.

A Tribute to a Life Well Lived

Our beloved son, brother, and friend, Lance Cpl. Leon Bertrand Deraps is no longer with us though he is never forgotten. We invite you to get to know him and his sacrifice through the memories and words of his friends, family, and mentors. We believe you will find that even though he died at the age of 19, his was a life well lived.
