Chimney Services in Maryland & DC
A well-designed fireplace not only adds to the beauty of a home but is also one of the main focal points in our lives and homes. As a focal point in the home, your fireplace needs to be in good working order. One of the most important things to remember is that a fireplace or chimney needs to breathe. This means that a chimney that has a leak or the flashing needs to be repaired is not in good working order. In fact, it may cause water damage to your home. A functional fireplace can make a house into a home, adding warmth and feeling of comfort and hospitality into your home.
Your Chimney is a dominant and interesting architectural feature on the exterior of our homes and adds an attractive element of interest and design. The Fireplace in the home is a central feature where we gather around and entertain friends and family and enjoy good times. Those of us who have a Fireplace in our homes place a high value on them. It isn’t hard to imagine coming home on a cold winter night and cuddling up in front of a wood-burning fireplace. Although Fireplaces are no longer necessary for our survival, they do retain an important part of most current popular construction and design. Enhancements such as glass doors, gas log lighters, fireplace exhaust fans, and outside air intake can increase the efficiency of your fireplace and chimney.

Chimneys That Last a Lifetime
Masonry chimneys can last for hundreds of years if they are maintained. As a Maryland and DC licensed masonry contractor, we repair quite a few fireplaces every year. Here are some points to consider in the maintenance of your Chimney: Always burn clean dry wood, green or wet wood will build up creosote in the Flue Liners and that can lead to a Chimney Fire. When burning any wood don’t restrict the airflow all the time. Every so often, open the air flow and burn a good hot fire for a while. This will burn off some of the creosote build-up, thus a safer chimney. Have your fireplace cleaned and inspected by a certified masonry professional ever year. Summer is a good time of year to do this, it’s easy to see any damage that might have accrued the winter and a good time to make any needed repairs.
