Let Us Build You A Masonry Chimney And Fireplace That You Can Love For A Lifetime!
Did you know that masonry chimneys can weigh up to six or seven tons? As such, masonry fireplaces require extensive footing to prevent shifting or cracking, which can allow fire to escape. A chimney and fireplace have numerous parts that need to work together to maximize safety and create proper drafting. These parts include the crown, the flue and its liner, the smoke chamber, the smoke shelf, the damper, the firebox, the hearth and mantel, the ash dump, and the foundation. In other words, masonry chimneys should only be built by professionals with a lot of proven experience putting up durable chimneys. The masons at A to Z Chimney Services take the job of chimney building seriously and can construct for you a beautiful brick and mortar or stone chimney that is safe and insulated and that will last for the life of your home.
We Install Prefabricated Fireplaces
Each year, we install an increasing number of prefabricated fireplaces for Sacramento homeowners. Far more affordable, though not as durable as their masonry counterparts, these hearths can be used with or without a chimney, depending on type. Instead of masonry, these fireplaces and their chimneys are made of metal and other materials. They come as complete units with all the necessary parts, engineered to work safely and efficiently together. Installation instructions have to be followed to the letter, especially in regards to clearances from the firebox and chimney to any combustible materials. The majority of prefab fireplaces require 2” minimum air space between the chimney and any wood framing. The CSIA-certified technicians at A to Z Chimney Services will be able to install your factory-built fireplace so that your warranty stands and so that you can enjoy your fire knowing that everything has been properly connected.
In addition to fireplace and chimney installations, A to Z Chimney Services can service your fireplace each year—conducting all necessary inspections and sweepings, waterproofing your chimney and masonry for extended life, and replacing worn-out or damaged components. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our online appointment form to make an appointment with A to Z Chimney Services, today.
If you know something is wrong with your chimney system but don’t really know what it is, let us troubleshoot the problem. We can recommend the correct fireplace or chimney service or repair to get it back in tip-top shape.

Dear A to Z,
I just wanted to respond to your follow up email and let you know how impressed I was with the young man who cleaned my dryer vent! He was neat, in uniform, and I could tell he knew his job well. He even took, the time to educate me as to how and why dryer vents get dirty / clogged, and why it’s a major safety hazard….I knew a dirty vent could be dangerous, but didn’t know it could be THAT dangerous!
Definitely an educational experience that I will tell my friends about! Oh, and by the way, the volume of lint he cleaned out of my dryer vent made the hair on the back of my neck stand up! No wonder my dryer was taking 2 to 3 cycles to dry the clothes! I’m glad I hired A to Z, and look forward to seeing you again in 2 years to have it cleaned again. I’m now a believer, and a customer for life!
