The Civil War Played A Pivotal Role In Shaping Lexington’s History & Blue Ridge Chimney Services Plays A Pivotal Role In Your Chimney Maintenance

Lexington is a town rich in history. It was nearly destroyed by fires and attacks during the Civil War. The resilience of its (famous and not so famous) residents has kept Lexington a strong community in the Shenandoah Valley. Blue Ridge Chimney Services is proud to provide these comprehensive chimney and maintenance services to property owners in Lexington:

During the summer of 1864 Lexington was all but destroyed as the Union forces set fires throughout the town; even Governor John Fletcher’s Lexington home was burned and destroyed. Fires can be devastating whether the cause is arson or another origin such as chimney fires. Many homeowners don’t realize they can prevent the risk of chimney fires with a yearly inspection and cleaning from Blue Ridge Chimney Services. Your chimney is designed to route the smoke, fumes, and provide ventilation to the outside to prevent health and safety hazards. Leaks and cracks in the masonry of your chimney and flue can be just as hazardous. The good news is that Blue Ridge Chimney Services is prepared to eliminate these health and safety risks for you.
