Consider replacing your fireplace with a pre-fabricated fireplace for cost and efficiency reasons.

Factory-Built Fireplace Repairs

Is a Pre-fabricated Fireplace Right for My Home?

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. With established relationships with fireplace manufacturers and years of experience installing the new parts, we can assist with ordering and replacing grates, spark screens, gas lighters and glass doors. We can also replace damaged refractory wall panels on just about any brand of factory-built fireplace.

Back To Services

“Fantastic service by Terry and his team. I have a wood burning/gas fireplace that needed cleaning and to check for animals that I had heard near the chimney. They did a thorough cleaning (and kept the house clean while doing it!) and found no evidence of animal activity. Terry showed me that the previous owners had tapped into the gas line incorrectly and had used copper pipe for the gas to the fireplace. They removed (at my request) all gas components and the fireplace is now safe and set for wood burning (I can have it changed back to gas in a safe manner later). I'm very grateful that they found and fixed the possibly dangerous situation and did a wonderful job on everything else. I highly recommend Valley Chimney!”
