The interior firebox of your chimney and venting system is subject to damage and deteriorate over time. Although the construction of your chimney’s firebox is built using firebrick and high temperature refractory mortar, years of use and extended subjection to high temperatures during burning can cause cracks or damage to bricks and mortar.
If your fireplace is a pre-fabricated metal fireplace, the interior panels of your firebox will eventually need repair or replacement. Cracks and decay of the refractory panels of your pre-fabricated fireplace can subject interior wall and floor framing to combustible temperatures, possibly causing a home fire.
Our qualified chimney technicians can repair, replace or rebuild your old or worn firebox allowing for years of continued use.
