Ace Chimney Sweeps Provides Expert Chimney Service To Claymont, Delaware

Since Ace Chimney Sweeps is based nearby in Elkton, Maryland, we regularly travel to Claymont for chimney service and vent service client calls. We’re glad that our work takes us to Claymont regularly, too, since it offers a ton of interest to anyone who has an appreciation for history.

Taking In History in Claymont

When you study masonry work for years and work with brick and mortar day in and day out, it’s tough to avoid developing a strong appreciation for this centuries-old art and its history. So when Ace Chimney Sweeps’ technicians see historic buildings, we see more than walls and a roof — we see the roots of our own craft and livelihood, and that’s a beautiful thing.

Claymont, in particular, has a ton to offer anyone who shares an appreciation of history and historic architecture and construction. Folks say that people have been settling in Claymont since around A.D. 1200, and historic buildings that are still standing in Claymont span anywhere from the early 1700s through the 1800s to the early part of the 1900s. Among them, there’s the enduring stone work at the aptly named Stone School, (built in 1805), and at famed illustrator Felix Octavius Carr Darley’s Darley House (which, legend has it, regularly saw visits from Charles Dickens). The Claymont Historical Society does a great job of collecting bits and pieces of Claymont’s history and carrying it through into the future so folks like us can learn, study and enjoy.

Expert Masonry Work, Today

All those historic masonry structures are still standing in part because, brick and mortar are remarkably strong. Expert craftsmanship is a start toward longevity, but regular maintenance – including annual chimney inspections and regular chimney sweeping — is a key part of keeping masonry strong, too.

Ace Chimney Sweeps’ technicians boast years of masonry training and experience, which allows us to handle any and all masonry jobs, from building a brand new masonry fireplace to doing expert tuckpointing repairs on a damaged chimney stack or restoring a failing historic chimney. We know masonry and we love what we do — which is part of what makes us great at our jobs.

Whether you have a newer masonry chimney system or a historic fireplace that needs attention, Ace Chimney Sweeps would be glad to help. We also service and install factory-built units, and sell and install new stoves!

If you live in Claymont and have a heating appliance, chimney or vent system need, we’re here to help. Just give Ace Chimney Sweeps a call at 410-392-4596 or click here to schedule an appointment online!
