Get Your Fireplace Ready for Winter

Fall is the best time of year to do some fireplace maintenance!

• Get a chimney cap to reduce access for water and wildlife
• Check the inside of your house for stains or dampness around your fireplace
• If your fireplace is made of brick, check the brickwork for damage
• Check the flue for soot buildup or cracks

    We have a propane gas fireplace that has not been used for a number of years and we are debating if we should put it back into use. We feel that an inspection is required to make sure of it`s safety condition while an assesment of possible repairs required is also made.

      Hi Jules,
      Having an inspection/maintenance done on the fireplace before using it would be a great idea. Give us a call and we can set up an appointment to make sure all is working as it should!
