Fireplace Replacement in Jacksonville FL

Posted on October 21, 2019 at 8:01 PM Comments comments ()
In Jacksonville Florida almost all fireplaces and chimneys are of the prefabricated type.  This means that your fireplace is a metal firebox inside of a metal box shell with ambient airspace between the two.  These fireplaces are appliances, not brick and mortar.  They have a manufacturer and a handbook which specifies everything from fuel type to the glass doors required for the fireplace and chimney system.  Many of the manufacturers of these fireplaces predict they will last 25-30 years under normal conditions.  So if your fireplace was manufactured after 1995 it is time to start thinking about it's replacement and what that means to your home.  Many homeowners are taken back at the cost to pull an old prefabricated fireplace and chimney system and replace it with a new one.  The amount of work that goes into this project is more than most homeowners and companies can handle.  The fireplace facing needs to be removed, the whole top has to come off, permits need to be pulled, custom fabrication is needed, the new fireplace and chimney system needs to be installed according to the manufacturers specifications, and a new fireplace facing must be installed to finish the project.  Typically two county inspections must be made during this process. 

 When Jacksonville FL and the surrounding areas need this type of project completed, All American Specialty Services is their one stop shop.  From beginning to end we will be there to complete the install of your new fireplace and chimney.  We will pull the permits, coordinate the inspections, fabricate any custom aluminum chase cover and wind shroud, find the right fireplace and chimney best suited for your home, and we even offer payment options and installments that best fit your budget.  We are proud to have made arrangements with Square Inc. and Celtic Bank to help with installment plans that are simple and easy for qualified customers.  With over 18 years of experience the smartest choice for prefab fireplace and chimney in Jacksonville Florida is AllAmericanSpecialtyServices.com

chimney leaks are no match for an aluminum chase cover and wind shroud in Jacksonville FLaluminum chase covers fix chimney leaks in Jacksonville FloridaFor over 5 years Jacksonville FL has turned to All American Specialty Services for all their fireplace and chimney servicing and repairs.  Whether it be an inspection before buying or selling a home or a full restoration of a 100 year old fireplace and chimney, All American Specialty Services has the experience to get the job done right.  One particular problem that is plaguing Jacksonville Florida and the surrounding areas is rusty chase covers.  Many times homeowners refer to this as the chimney cap, but on a prefabricated fireplace the chimney cap is typically just a round top with a spark arrestor.  The chase cover is essentially the roof for the chimney pipe.  They come in all sizes so each new chase cover must be custom fabricated.  All American Specialty Services performs this service in house and cuts out the middle man.  This makes it possible to offer better products at the best prices. Using heavy gauge welded aluminum the problem is fixed rather than putting a bandage on the issue.  While a chase cover is not the prettiest bill in the world, usually between $400-$700 installed, it is much better than the alternative.  If the chase cover is not replaced water will leak further into the system creating more rust and eventually a hole in the system.  At that point the entire fireplace and chimney must be replaced and that bill can range from $4000-$10,000.  The chase cover no longer sounds so bad when looking at the long term effects of a chimney leak ignored.  Let All American Specialty Services provide a free proposal for a chimney leak or any other chimney repair by scheduling an in home consultation here www.allamericanspecialtyservices.com

Many home owners in north Florida have fireplaces and chimneys that are actually considered an appliance.  A factory built fireplace or prefabricated fireplace is actually considered an appliance and is UL listed.  The owners manual almost assuredly recommends annual service or inspection of the fireplace and chimney in order to assure proper working condition.  It also likely recommends inspection after a heavy storm or if the chimney cap or chimney chase are hit by a tree, limb, or other object.  In Jacksonville FL the Chimney Sweep home owners and management companies turn too is All American Specialty Services. Because of the belief that no fireplace and chimney should be neglected and every home owner and management professional should be well versed in the fireplaces in their homes, All American Specialty Services always provides the best education and information to its customers.  Along with providing the most intensive and thorough chimney sweep in Jacksonville FL and the surrounding areas. 
 
If the top portion of your fireplace and chimney looks like this picture than it is a prefabricated or factory built chimney.  Only the top round portion is the chimney cap.  The round visible pipe is the outer chimney pipe.  The storm collar is at the lower portion of the pipe and stops water from entering between the pipe and the chase pan.  The flat piece of metal where the pipe enters the chase is most often referred to as a chase pan or chase cover.  It blocks water from entering the hollow chase down to the roof.  If the chase cover becomes rusty it should be replaced immediately in order to stop more costly damage to the system.
