If you have a fireplace in your home or building already there is no need to convince you of it’s usefulness. From heating your home naturally (in the case of a wood burning fireplace) to setting the ambience or tone in your restaurant, dining hall or professional offices. A beautiful fireplace makes for a more luxurious and relaxing experience for all.
A fireplace isn’t just a hole in the wall you feed fuel every now and then, it’s part of a system which includes your chimney, a flue liner, and usually a lot of masonry work depending on whether you have a traditional brick chimney or something that has been fabricated out of stainless steel.
In order for your fireplace and chimney to work properly they must be maintained and repaired when necessary. Fireplaces and Chimneys made with brick and stone masonry are exposed to a cycle of heating and cooling hundreds of times per year. This cycle, coupled with excess moisture and the occasional freeze slowly takes it’s toll on the mortar holding your chimney together.
