Many homes have a factory built fireplace, and after some time, these fireplaces, just like masonry chimneys and fireplaces, need to be replaced. This process needs to be performed by chimney professionals due to the exacting nature of fireplace and chimney installation. Any error committed during the installation can result in an unsafe situation. Things like chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisoning could easily be possible in this scenario.

Chimney professionals have a variety of groups they are members of or are certified by. The NCSG membership and the CSIA certification are two of the most important things to look for when hiring a chimney pro. Both of these organizations have strict codes of conduct and work standards that will ensure that the work performed in your home is both safe and precise.

If you find yourself in a situation where it may be time to replace or repair your fireplace or chimney, please give us a call. We’ll be glad to help you make the right choice for you and your home.
