Fireplace Installation, Repair and Maintenance in Durham, NC

Bud Matthews Services - Fireplaces

Fireplaces were once the principle way that most households kept warm during the winter. Fireplaces radiated out heat in an effective way that a simple fire in a central hearth could not. Today, of course, furnaces, heat pumps, and other modern appliances have taken over the job of providing warmth for families during the cold weather. But the fireplace still has a special place in many homes. Along with warmth, a fireplace now creates a cozy atmosphere that is almost impossible to match and a place for family and friends to gather in the evening.

If you have a fireplace in your home (or you would like to have one built) then you should call up our specialists at Bud Matthews Services. We offer a number of different services for fireplaces in the Durham, NC area, including new fireplace installation, replacement, repairs and restoration, and routine inspections and cleanings.

Fireplace Cleaning

You may have heard that fireplaces don’t need to have any cleaning done aside from sweeping out ashes. This is not true! Fireplaces should have an annual visit from an expert to clean them and eliminate build–up of creosote, which can turn into a significant fire hazard for the rest of your home. Our fireplace cleaning specialists will see that your hearth is kept beautiful and safe.

Fireplace Inspection

Regular fireplace inspections are important to maintain safety for your home. A professional inspection will check the firebox, the flue lining, the masonry, the gas line, and all the other important parts of the fireplace to see that it has proper ventilation and is not in danger of allowing heat or flames to escape to flammable building material surrounding it.

Fireplace Restoration

If you live in an older home with an aging fireplace that is starting to crack or show signs of extreme wear, you must contact a professional. Fireplace restoration is a highly specialized job that takes care of tasks such as rebuilding the firebox and repairing damage after a chimney fire. Don’t attempt to use your fireplace again if you believe it needs serious repair work! Instead, call up our team and we’ll have your fireplace restored.
