When it’s cold outside, there is nothing that warms up both your home and your heart like spending time with your family around the fireplace. However, traditional wood fireplaces require heavy maintenance, which can be a burden. That’s why more and more families are turning toward gas fireplaces to add warm light into their lives.

We are a full service chimney and masonry service that provides stellar service at a reasonable cost.

Gas Fireplace Inspection
Gas fireplaces are ideal for most families, because they do not require a lot of maintenance.
However, like any home appliance, you cannot simply set it and forget it. Gas fireplaces need periodic maintenance to ensure they stay in top shape season after season.
If your gas fireplace is attached to a chimney, you should have your system sweeped and inspected annually. There are three different levels of chimney safety inspections, which are all designed by the Chimney Safety Institute of America. Our certified technicians can recommend the best level of inspection for you.
During all levels of inspection, outfitters are looking for missing mortar, loose bricks, and water intrusion. If any damage is found, they will help guide you in the best path forward.
While chimney damage can be apparent at a glance, fireplace damage is often neglected until it becomes a noticeable problem. However, just because you can’t see it doesn’t make it any less important. Because you are working with fire – gas or wood – you must ensure your equipment is in tip top shape.
When completing an annual inspection, outfitters will also search your fireplace for potential damage. If you aren’t sure if you are ready for a fireplace service, there are some visual clues to look out for:
- Damaged or missing mortar between the fire brick and the firebox
- Gaps in the refractory panels
- Efflorescence around your fireplace
Our certified team can diagnose any issues right away. Once problems are identified, our team will quickly work to rectify the problem with the best possible solution.
All of our chimney outfitters are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America, so you can rest assured they will work tirelessly to get your gas burning fireplace up to snuff.
Although gas fireplaces do not create ash like wood burning fireplaces, they still require annual cleaning. This cleaning process is vital to ensure fires do not get out of hand.
Cleaning a gas fireplace is an essential service you should receive every year. Our certified outfitters will clean your gas logs, lava rocks, and pilot light to ensure you get the most out of your gas fireplace. Our team will also clean the glass and check your gas lines, so you can feel confident that your system is in working order.
Whether or not you use your fireplace frequently, a chimney sweep is vital to keeping good maintenance. If your chimney and fireplace are not upkept, then harmful carbon monoxide can flow into your home, causing harmful effects to your family.
