Types of Wood Fireplace Repair and Restoration
Firebox Repointing and Rebuilding
The area where wood is burned is called the firebox, and it takes a lot of heat and abuse. If you notice loose bricks or mortar, cracks, or the mortar joints are eroded, it may be time for wood fireplace repair and restoration. We’ll remove and replace damaged bricks and weakened mortar.
Your fireplace damper stops home heating from escaping up the chimney when you’re not using the fireplace. If you don’t have a damper or a set of tight fitting glass doors, you’re losing a lot of heat up your chimney. Give us a call and we can help you choose the right damper for your fireplace.
Drafting Problems (Excess Smoke Outside the Chimney)
Drafting problems can be caused by many factors. Two major factors include the temperature difference between the flue gas and the outside air, as well as the chimney height. Excessive smoking can also be the result of:
- Blockages in the flue, cap, or screening
- Incorrect chimney height, flue, or throat size
- Damper location
- Smoke chamber/shelf design
- Air leaks within the chimney
- Inadequate air supply
Once we determine the cause of the drafting problem, we will recommend a solution or wood fireplace repair and restoration if needed.
