About Us

Family Owned and Operated Since 1990

Family owned and operated since 1990, Red Bud Chimney Sweeps & Home Improvements prides ourselves on continued quality customer service.

In 1990 Red Bud Chimney Sweeps started out as a Part-Time business to help make the community safer. Dave Hess, the owner was a volunteer firefighter for 28 years and had seen the devastation that a chimney fire can cause, and had even experienced it first hand. A truck driver at the time Dave decided to try his hand at something that could make a little money on the side and provide a service to the community that he saw as a necessity.

In 1994 Dave was laid off as a truck driver and decided that this would be a fantastic time to expand the business into a full time adventure. Being a licensed builder he added the "& Home Improvements" to make the solid company known today as Red Bud Chimney Sweeps & Home Improvements!

Where did such a unique name come from? Born and Raised in Buchanan Michigan the Hess family wanted to create a name that is unique to the primary location of the business. The City of Buchanan has been dubbed the "Red Bud City" for the number of Red Bud Trees located in the city, which is also the city tree. Therefore it only made sense to include "Red Bud" in the name of the business.
