  • Firebox Repairs — Are you in search of a wood or gas fireplace repair? Because the firebox is the area of the fireplace system that actually holds the fire, it’s susceptible to heat damage and wear and tear. Once damaged, the firebox can allow heat to come into contact with nearby combustibles and possibly spark a house fire, but by quickly making fireplace repairs, you can restore your firebox for safe use. Our team uses refractory mortar and firebrick to repair and rebuild fireboxes, and also offers cast iron firebacks to help protect the back wall and provide you with more radiant heat. Find out more about our firebox repairs, firebox rebuilds, and cast iron firebacks here.
  • Smoke Chamber Repairs —Does smoke billow up into your home when you light up a fire? The smoke chamber or inverted funnel above your firebox is designed to funnel smoke and byproducts up into the flue so they can exit the home, but we often find that smoke chambers are jagged, damaged, or incorrectly constructed. If it turns out your smoke chamber is the problem, we can parge it smooth or reshape it for a safer, higher performing, more enjoyable fireplace system. Find out more.
  • Chimney Leak Repairs — Chimney leaks are one of the most rapidly damaging and costly problems you can have, but we can help. We’re leak resolution experts and we offer crown repair, masonry repairwaterproofing, and chimney cap/custom cap installation. Whatever is causing your water problems, we can put a stop to the leak and help you prevent future leaks. Find out more here.
