West Friendship has hot and humid summers and cool winters with highly variable seasonal snowfall. Due to its elevation and distance from the Chesapeake Bay, temperatures in West Friendship are often considerably lower than in eastern parts of Maryland, especially at night. Frequent freeze-thaw cycles, higher than average snowfall, and more frequent use of fireplaces by West Friendship homeowners means West Friendship chimneys often require service more frequently than in other areas of the region. If you notice cracking of your chimney crown, crumbling mortar, or debris in your fireplace, call Fire-Safe Chimney Sweeps today for your annual inspection and cleaning. We can diagnose and repair any maintenance issues to keep your chimney and fireplace burning trouble-free.

Continuing a Tradition of Olde World Chimney Craftsmanship
