If you’re looking for a small-town feel but just a long step from the big city, Bushland may be just the place for you. With a rich history of ranching and railroads, Bushland has been around since the early 1900s. Tourists don’t know Bushland for its farmland or cattle ranches, however. It’s best known to outsiders for the famous “Cadillac Ranch” off of Historic Route 66. We know Bushland for that and so many other things.
Educating the Community
One of the first things after the Chicago, Rock Island and Gulf Railway station that established the little town of Bushland was the post office and then the elementary school. To this day, students attend kindergarten through twelfth grade at Bushland Independent School District, and the community makes education a priority. We work together with community schools to raise awareness about fire safety and we’re even happy to raise awareness about trades such as our own—chimney professionals.

Whether it’s a ply-board illusion or nose-diving Cadillacs, Bushland is proud to have some of the most interesting art installations dotting its landscapes.

Whether your chimney is new or historic, our technicians at West Texas Chimney and Venting Solutions can service it. We repair, service, and install them. Our office may be in Amarillo, but we travel to Bushland!

Nearly 3,000 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year. These fires account for about 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. The majority of these fires are caused by one thing—failure to clean them. As part of our mission to bring safety to Bushland homes, we clean dryer vents, preventing dangerous lint buildup and accidental fires. If your clothes dryer wasn’t professionally installed, we can look it over. In addition to our dryer vent services, we also complete blower door testing. During a blower door test, we’ll identify any air leaks in your home, including gaps and cracks around doors and windows. These leaks may be small, but they cost a bundle in heating and cooling costs each year.
