Unlike a traditional site-built masonry fireplace, a factory-built fireplace is built as a complete fireplace and chimney system engineered to factory specifications for safety and efficiency. Sometimes called a zero-clearance fireplace or a pre-fabricated fireplace, these fireplaces can provide many benefits to the value of your home.
Depending on the scope of the repairs needed for your existing fireplace, your chimney professional might recommend replacing the fireplace with a pre-fabricated one altogether. This decision comes from comparing costs, energy savings and overall home safety.
Factory-built fireplaces, just like all fireplaces, will require routine maintenance and cleaning. If installed properly, they can keep your home warm for years. If your pre-fab fireplace requires repair or part replacement, Valley Chimney will help you get your fireplace in good working order.
