Masonry Chimney Construction
Masonry Chimney Construction in Gaithersburg, MD
If you’re planning an addition or building a new house, leave it to the chimney building to the experts. We help you plan how big the chimney needs to be depending on its intended purpose, and we build you an attractive, sturdy masonry or cinder-block chimney, or a chimney chase, if that’s what’s best for your plans.
Our founder built new chimneys before fixed old ones. We can build a new masonry chimney for you. Let us say this though: while our mason can build anything at all, we like to keep our focus on chimneys. If you have a non-chimney masonry project you can certainly check with us; depending on the time of the year we may be able to accommodate you. Our men are certainly capable.
Every situation is different, but we can say this about every job.
- We use only high-quality materials on your home. We don’t try to save a dollar on materials.
- Our masons are real masons, not just chimney sweeps with trowels in their hands.
- We send enough men to do the job and we stay on the job until it’s finished. High’s Chimney won’t leave you hanging if a job takes extra time because of other scheduled work.
- We clean up after ourselves.
- On about 80% of all jobs a quality control/ safety inspector comes to the job while the men are working.
