The Benefits Of
One of the main reasons why so many homeowners have been using masonry chimneys in the household is that they last centuries! Brick has an average lifespan of 50 years when properly maintained and natural stone can last up to 100 years!
Unlike metal prefab chimneys, there is less room for repair or failure, keeping repair costs of masonry chimneys at a fraction of the price of metal chimneys that can rust or bend, or dent with weathering.
Just because masonry is attractive doesn’t mean that it has to be hard to maintain. When preventative measures are taken during installation, masonry is simple to maintain.
Brick and stone can be sealed, making stains from ash and soot wipe right off the surface with minimal effort. They are also very strong so chipping and gouging are only found in extreme cases of abuse. Masonry can keep its like-new appearance for decades with minimal cleaning.
Who said that creating a new chimney had to be a cookie-cutter process? The creation of a custom chimney can be as exciting as installing a new flooring system in your home.

With winter being a constant dread here in Virginia, it is crucial to find ways to improve upon your home’s heating capabilities. Well with a masonry chimney, you will find that your home will stay warmer when in use!

The Process Of The Pros
How We Build Your Chimney
We will work with you to find the perfect width, size and identify combustible materials that will need to be moved or avoided.
Choose The Material
The exterior of the chimney can be crafted using brick, natural stone, pavers, and stone block to name a few.
First, we start right above the fireplace crafting the smokebox, the part of the chimney responsible for venting smoke into the chimney.
The flue is what connects the smokebox to the roof and can be made of brick, stone or clay tiles.
Outside Of Chimney
During construction of the flue, we also begin work on the exterior of the chimney, working from the ground up.
Flashing is used to create a watertight bond where the chimney meets the roof of your home.
Chimney caps are used to reduce the amount of moisture, keep animals out, block downdrafts and keep debris out of your chimney.
After installation, give the chimney at least 10 days to cure before lighting a fire so the mortar has time to dry.
