The firebox is a central component of your fireplace, as it’s the space that contains the fire. Typically, this essential element is constructed of highly durable, fire-resistant materials; brick, cast iron, or stone, for example. Constant exposure to the high temperatures, the corrosive byproducts that fires produce, and even moisture, however, can degrade a firebox, and when that happens, repairs may be needed.
Firebox repair, as the term implies, describes the restoration of damaged fireplace fireboxes. The services vary and depend on the specific damages that a firebox has suffered, but can include replacing damaged masonry materials, fixing cracks, and sealing the firebox so as to ensure the byproducts of combustion, such as smoke, creosote, and excess heat, don’t escape the structure and travel into your home. At 1800 Chimney, we provide an array of firebox repair services that will keep your fireplace functioning properly and safely.
Because your firebox is such a vital component of your fireplace, having it repaired at the first sign of damage is imperative. But how can you tell when the structure is damaged? Here are some telltale signs that you need to contact a firebox repair professional:
