Why Join NCSG?

Founded in 1977, the National Chimney Sweep Guild has long set the precedent for innovation, professionalism, and community among chimney and hearth professionalsThe aim of NCSG is to provide representation, proven industry standards, camaraderie, and networking. We accomplish this through education, industry specific publications, and a yearly convention that brings the industry together on a national platform.
