Many homeowners, particularly during biting Maryland and Washington DC area winters, are struck with the idea of adding a chimney to their home. The cozy imagery of a family enjoying a roaring fire is an alluring prospect for any homeowner. However, a chimney is a very serious addition to a home — not just a hole in the ceiling.
You might be a little bit doubtful about making such an addition to your home, and you’d be right to be cautious. When adding a new chimney to your home, it’s important to design and build it according to its usage. Chimney design can vary drastically based on what vents into it. Even the difference between a wood fireplace and a woodstove can affect chimney design. Let the experienced professionals help you navigate the choices to design a safe and functional chimney that meets your standards.
