Many homeowners like the range of choices they have when they are installing a factory-built or metal chimney. Because they are choosing to install a chimney rather than buying a home with a masonry one already built, they are able to make several decisions to influence their chimney's appearance and usability.
Because they are produced by manufacturers, metal chimneys are regulated and tested for safety issues that masonry chimneys are not. With any safety or user questions or concerns, a homeowner can easily turn to the manufacturer for answers.
Not only can you choose the appearance of your factory-built chimney, but also the size and location.
Metal chimneys have several different parts to them; therefore, if something is wrong with your chimney you may have an easier solution to your problem than if you had a masonry chimney.
Regardless of style, all chimneys need routine maintenance & repair in order to ensure they are safe and ready to use. Still have questions? Feel free to contact us with any inquiries about your chimney!
