Chimney Repairs & Rebuilds
As a company we specialize in restoration and rebuilding of chimneys with the idea that they are in fact designed for the purpose of venting both fireplaces and furnaces, and therefore certain very important designs and codes are set specifically for the rebuilding of chimneys.
In order for them to vent fireplaces efficiently and have a long life in our cold winters proper construction by specialist is important.
WE ARE WETT CERTIFIED FOR FIREPLACES
Part of our chimney division that sets us apart from other companies is our highly trained scaffold guys. We own our scaffold systems that allow us to access any chimney in Toronto at a fraction of the costs re rental and erection of scaffold needed by most other companies.
Professional masons should always handle the rebuilding of a chimney, as they must meet designs and codes, and must actually do the job they are built for – venting both fireplaces and furnaces. A specialist, such as Bowman Masonry, is required for these projects, as proper installation is important, most especially with Toronto’s long and cold winters.
Scaffolding is a requirement for most chimney projects, and is an area where Bowman Masonry can save you money. We not only own scaffolding equipment but have the employees to erect scaffolding as well; ensuring that you pay for the work to be completed, not on getting our masons where they need to be.
Living in Southern Ontario and enduring our cold, long winters make having a fireplace a beautiful and functional addition to one’s home. However, there comes a time when your fireplace needs to be replaced, or when you wish to add a fireplace to a new room. As WETT certified specialists, Bowman Masonry is able to correct any issues with your current fireplace; it may be incorrectly designed and add more smoke to your room than heat. We are proficient at ensuring that the fireplace does as it’s meant to, in addition to being an elegant attraction to your home.
Bowman’s standards for fireplaces are as follows:
- They must work. The fireplace must draw properly, and it must be something the client will love and want to use.
- They must be safe. The fireplace must be designed with zero compromise to any applicable building codes and fireplace standards to ensure that it is safe for use for years to come, used as often and with as large or small a fire as desired.
- They must look good. The fireplace must be esthetic and add value to our client’s homes.
Services provided regarding fireplaces are repairs to smoke chambers, installation of stainless steel liners, design and build new fireplaces or the retrofit of many existing older Toronto homes unused fireplaces back to above standards.
