I was having some concerns with our fireplace recently, so I called the local fireplace professionals to come out & address the problem.
I was expecting the repair to be a lot higher costing than it genuinely was! Which was a relief to tell you the truth.
The fireplace itself is 1 of the real kind! You know, not 1 of those fake electric fireplaces or gas fireplaces. So that was why I was expecting the cost to be high. But the fireplace professional was able to get things done in a satisfactory amount of time & it was not as big of a repair as either they or I had thought! Fireplaces, especially when you have an authentic real fireplace can be tricky to maintain. They could be working good at 1 point, & then you may have a problem with the chimney or the fire direction may be going out of control which would have to do with the shaping of it getting awful from age. In this case of the fireplace repair I delt with, it was the chimney that was having problems. It was clogged & the fireplace professionals had to come out to unclog it & get the smoke pumping out of it again. Otherwise it could cause a genuinely awful fire all together. So if you have an authentic real fireplace be sure to always look after it & always have it checked up by a fireplace professional, and much the same as you would with a central heating, ventilation & A/C system.
