Leave Installs to the Pros

Here at TOR Chimney & Fireplace, we offer a wide range of services. Some of these services, such as a basic cleaning or inspection, can be completed by a homeowner or general handyman. But some of the more complex jobs should not be attempted by anyone other than a chimney and fireplace professional. Installing a heating appliance in your home can be very difficult, and if you don’t know the best practices, it can be costly and hazardous as well. An improperly ventilated appliance could pollute your home with toxic or combustible fumes. Alteration or removal of masonry could cause lasting structural damage to your home. Even for the DIY handyman, this is nothing to mess around with.

Although some other tasks can be completed to some effect by an informed homeowner, it is always best to go with a pro for anything more than a simple cleaning. Our years of experience means we have the knowledge to complete all projects safely and effectively. Please see our blog post on why you should have routine, professional cleanings for more info.
