Dear Interior Designers / Contractors / Real Estate Agents,

During the course of a normal business day, many of my clients inquire about related home services and I like to be able to refer them to trusted business associates in these areas.

I have noticed over the years that designers, renovators and agents frequently require the services of a chimney professional before beginning work on a project or before selling a home.

As respected chimney experts with over 25 years in the Toronto area, we can confidantly offer your clients a full range of home services including chimney cleaning and inspection, fireplace renovations and outdoor/ indoor masonry reconstruction.

Your clients will be treated with the same respect I bring to each of my clients, some of whom I have serviced for many years.

In recent months we have had a number of fireplace renovation projects by homeowners wishing to improve the look and value of their homes.  As I discovered, recent research by Re/Max Canada ranked fireplaces 3rd in return on investment in a list of the six smartest renovations:

  • Landscaping
  • Kitchens
  • Fireplaces
  • Paint
  • Bathrooms
  • Floors

With more people than ever opting to renovate rather than move, home renovation spending in Canada has climbed from $21 billion in 1999 to an estimated $42 billion in 2006, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC).

Renovating an existing fireplace, or installing a new one, is one of the most frequent choices by homeowners not only because it increases the enjoyment of the home but it also adds considerable value.  According to the National Home Builder's Association, 77% of home buyers list a fireplace as a most-wanted amenity. As a seller, you may enjoy a 6% to 12% increase in your home's sales price simply by adding a fireplace.

I encourage you to call and speak to me at anytime about client needs or concerns – I’d be most happy to help.
