We Also Service, Repair, & Install Factory-Built Fireplaces
Are you longing for the comfort of a warm fire but don’t have the time or funds to invest in a full masonry fireplace and chimney? Have you wished your home was capable of withstanding the weight of a masonry fireplace? Have you considered a factory-built or prefabricated system? Factory-built fireplaces and chimneys can provide years of enjoyment and warmth, and since they’re constructed by the manufacturer, you don’t have to plan for days or weeks of construction in your home. They’re also typically constructed of relatively lightweight materials, so they don’t require a concrete footing for installation and fare much better in seismic events.
In addition to their lightweight nature, factory-built fireplaces also reduce the clearance to combustibles without masonry work– there are even zero-clearance options. This allows for them to be installed in smaller openings, without fear of nearby combustible materials within the walls igniting.
The technicians here at The Chimney Sweeper have years of factory-built fireplace installation experience with all types and brands. We follow local codes for clearance to combustibles, manufacturer’s specifications, and installation instructions exactly, so you never have to worry about an improper or unsafe installation voiding your warranty and putting your family at risk. We do each installation right the first time – guaranteed!
Are you having issues with your existing factory-built fireplace? We don’t just stop with installation — we also service and troubleshoot factory-built fireplaces. Whether your fireplace and chimney are showing signs of a leak or your system is smoking more than usual or operating less efficiently, we can help. We’ll evaluate your factory-built fireplace and chimney, checking for defects, damage, blockages, or other common issues. Whatever the problem you’re having, you can count on us to offer expert fireplace solutions!
Fire Stop/Draft Stop Installation
We also install fire stop and draft stop systems, which can not only save you money, they can save your life! Many fire stop systems and draft systems are improperly installed by those with little experience or attention to detail and a very limited knowledge of proper fire containment methods and materials. But when it comes to containing fire and preventing smoke, heat, and fire from spreading throughout your home, an improper job won’t cut it. Protect your family and your home by having our trained and certified technicians install your fire stop or draft stop system.

Manufacturer’s Termination Cap & Spark Arrestor Installation
Just like masonry chimney systems, factory-built systems rely on a proper termination cap and spark arrestor to keep moisture, bugs, animals, birds, and leaves out, and keep stray sparks from the fire in. If you’re looking for the perfect termination cap and spark arrestor to go with your factory-built system, you’ve come to the right place! Our technicians will identify an option that is compliant with your system and adheres to the manufacturer’s specifications. Click here to learn more about chimney caps!
