Prefabricated Chimney Repairs
Prefabricated chimney repairs tend to be more about the breakdown of parts of the system that will need replacing as opposed to repairing an actual brick and mortar structure. That doesn’t make it any easier though because you are also dealing with some older units that are no longer being made. That’s when having the ability to make some custom parts for some of the more common repairs like chase covers or storm collars is a real plus.
A to Z Chimneys is also a part of several larger organizations and we have been known to ask if someone has a supplier that may have a part that is no longer manufactured. This is all good news! This is more common for firebox panels than any other part.

Want a New Unit
There are also other possibilities when upgrading or wanting to get a new look or an entire new unit. It’s important to discuss with a certified NFI technician before you do anything so you know what you should look for as far as compatibility and specifications are concerned. If you don’t, there is a possibility that your new unit will not perform up to your expectations due to one of those issues and the last thing you want would be to have the new unit pulled out and redone because something was overlooked.
Repairs, maintenance and installations need to be done to spec every time on a prefabricated chimney system so you will be aware of any issue you might have along the way. Just like masonry units, taking care of factory built units per the manufactures guidelines and getting them inspected and swept annually will be the best money you will ever spend on your fireplace. You will be rewarded in the long term by catching potential issues along the way.
Chimneys for free-standing wood stoves need maintenance and repair, too, so call on the experts at A to Z for help with this type of chimney repair or installation.

I just wanted to thank you for your expert advice at my last chimney cleaning. We were looking to purchase and install a new wood stove in order to keep our home warmer during the winter, and although it wasn’t directly related to having our chimney swept, your technician took a lot of time to go over several features and designs that were good, and told me several things to watch out for when purchasing a new wood stove.
Needless to say, I could tell this guy knew what he was talking about! It was nice getting an impartial opinion from someone who works with wood stoves all day long!
Suffice it to say that when our new wood stove is installed, we’ll continue to have A to Z out to clean it! You guys are awesome!
