A fireplace is a real selling point to a home. In fact, for many people, it’s the deal-breaker. Luckily, there are many ways that you can add a fireplace to your home. You can go the traditional route and have a brick and mortar fireplace added. Keep in mind that there are certain problems that masonry systems bring. From weight to costly materials, a brick and mortar fireplace is a big decision. If you really want to add a fireplace to your home think about adding a prefabricated chimney to your home.

Benefits of a Prefabricated Chimneyprivate home with two white chimneys

The biggest perk of adding a prefabricated chimney to your home is that it is made of lightweight materials right in the factory, ready to be installed in your home. Because these materials are so lightweight, it opens up other possibilities for your fireplace, the main one being placement. Most people think of a fireplace being in the living area, but with a prefabricated chimney, you could consider other rooms, such as the kitchen or bedroom. Wouldn’t it be cozy to relax in your bed in front of a warm fire? With a prefab chimney, you can do just that!

Another benefit of prefab chimneys is cost. Adding a brick and mortar chimney will be very costly. Besides materials and building costs, it will be expensive to add the components necessary to support that extra weight. Because your prefabricated chimney is made in the factory of lightweight materials, the cost will be considerably lower.


The biggest concern among homeowners is safety. A prefabricated chimney is a safe option, but it must be installed exactly according to factory instructions. That’s where Chimney Doctors of Colorado comes in. Our expert technicians have the experience and the knowledge to make sure that everything is installed correctly so that your family is kept safe from all dangers of chimney fires.

As with brick and mortar chimneys, it is important to have your prefab chimney inspected on a yearly basis, and Chimney Doctors of Colorado can handle that job as well. So whether you’re thinking of adding a chimney to your home, or if you have one that needs to be inspected, give us a call soon!
