A fireplace should never be used if it is in need of repair. Smooth surfaces within the fireplace and flue contribute to optimal venting; fireplace repairs left unfixed can compromise your venting, bringing harmful gases into your home.
A common fireplace repair is the restoration of the firebox brickwork. We will inspect your fireplace masonry and suggest a course of action; some restoration repairs include replacing mortar between the joints while others may require a full rebuild.
Another common fireplace repair is replacing or fixing the damper. The damper, made of metal, can begin to warp over years decreasing the efficiency of its seal. A damper replacement will pay for itself in energy savings.
