History of City of Parma:
Parma was originally part of Parma Township
, created on March 7, 1826. The first settlers were the Benaiah Fay family from New York state, who settled along the Cleveland-Columbus Road in 1816. The name was taken from Parma, New York, where it was probably derived from the early 19th century fascination with classical Italy. During the 19th century, Parma remained largely agricultural. In 1912, a portion of the township seceded to form the village of Parma Heights. In the fall of 1924, Parma was incorporated as a village, and in 1926 it adopted the mayor-council form of government. On January 1, 1931, a proposition to annex it to the city of Cleveland was defeated, and Parma became a city. Parma's tremendous growth came after World War II as young families began moving from Cleveland into the suburbs. During the Cold War, Parma's Nike Site Park, now James Day Park, housed Nike missiles located in underground silos. Watch videos from Parma

Chimney Repair and Replacement Contractors and Masonry and Chimney Construction Companies
When it comes to chimney repair
, most people are in the dark about what needs to be done.
Mortar cracks and bricks start to crumble. The question is the construction of a new chimney or the repair work of the existing chimney. The cost for repairing these cracks in the bricks of the chimney might be higher, but the repair work, repointing or reconstruction, should be done with little delay unless those cracks deepen to a very point beyond the chimney repair
work. Chimney cracks might be of several types e.g. hairstyle cracks, diagonal cracks, nail heads, unleveled walls.
New Chimney Construction and Replacement
The chimney walls
cracks might develop from moisture or rain due to a missing chimney cap or broken chimney crown. And if this happens to take place, then water tends to enter inside the bricks and the walls of the chimney develop slab foundation and nail heads foundation would appear. When the water in the bricks and mortar freezes, then it becomes ice and breaks those bricks and chimney's structure begins to decay. One of the best fixing solutions is fixing those bricks with a water repellant (should be of siloxane material). Chimney construction can be masonry or stone or brick, usually having a fireplace, and having a flue liner inside, and flashing where the chimney meets the roof. A chimney that has deteriorated can be replaced with a decorative brick and stone chimney.

could be done in several effective way. Due to consistent usage of chimney in household work, it is quite usual that tar and other contaminants might build up.

Chimney Repairs - a High, Dangerous Job
Many chimney repairs are simple and straightforward -- most commonly, the mortar between some bricks has come
loose and it just needs tuck pointing. But it can be more serious -- perhaps the flue liner has broken down,
risking your familty to fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. In these cases, chimney repair can become a high
and dangerous job. Depending on the particulars, our experts may choose to build a scaffold to work from,
and may even require a bucket truck (a cherry picker) for some portion of the job.
Sometimes the chimney can't be salvaged, and must be rebuilt anew. And in those cases, let your imagination run,
because beauty can be yours. It doesn't have to be a direct replacement - you could replace a brick chimney with
a stone chimney, and greatly enhance the appearance of your home.
