Firebox

We’re Indianapolis Firebox Repair Experts

Nothing warms the home and lifts the winter blues like a hot, crackling wood fire. But every time you build a fire in your firebox (the actual area in the fireplace that holds the wood), the refractory bricks and mortar that make up the firebox are put under a great deal of stress. Extreme temperatures and corrosive byproducts like creosote can cause the firebox to crack, crumble, and develop holes and gaps over time. And when this happens, it’s not just unsightly – it’s dangerous.
“My husband and I were very impressed with Chimney Solutions. Jackson did our initial inspection and was kind, professional and responded quickly whenever I had questions, which was a lot! Dominic and Jake installed our gas logs and did a great job and were both very nice. Plus our gas log kits look beautiful and give off an amazing amount of heat, yay! Will definitely recommend and hire again.”

“The service from Chimney Solutions was courteous and professional. Chris did an inspection and was thorough in explaining his findings. We needed a cleaning and some minor repairs around our gas log set. David was professional, kept everything cleaned up nicely, efficient, and took some extra care to make the gas logs look nice. They were able to squeeze us in just in time to have the fire feeling nice for Christmas morning! Will return to chimney solutions for any future work. Thrilled with the results!”

Why Is A Damaged Firebox So Dangerous?

Have you noticed cracks, holes, gaps, or crumbling brick or mortar in your firebox? The firebox is designed to contain the fire and high heat produced during the fire, but when cracks and holes form, it can no longer effectively do this. As a result, smoke, heat, gas, stray sparks, and ash can make their way into the walls surrounding your fireplace, where they can easily spark a rapidly spreading house fire.

In addition to the safety hazards associated with a deteriorating or damaged firebox, there are efficiency and aesthetic concerns. You see, not only does a shoddy firebox detract from the beauty of your fire, but each crack and gap decreases the efficiency of the chimney system, leaving you burning through wood much faster, with less heat output.

That’s why the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends that every homeowner have their chimney and fireplace professionally inspected by a certified sweep each and every year. During an inspection, a CSIA-certified technician will make note of any firebox damage and recommend a course of action that will restore the safety, efficiency, and beauty of your firebox.

Firebox Repair & Restoration Work That Will Last

The experts here at Chimney Solutions restore and repair fireboxes throughout the greater Indianapolis area. We can replace damaged brick and mortar with new fire bricks and refractory mortar designed specifically for fireboxes. We’ll also seal the firebox floor with fireclay for added protection and strength. This fireclay can be used to seal the walls of the firebox as well.

If your firebox is beyond repair, a fireplace insert can be retrofitted into your fireplace. A fireplace insert will allow you to enjoy your fireplace once more, despite the poor condition of your firebox.

Do you have a prefabricated metal fireplace insert? If so, you may need to have the firebox panels replaced at some point. Our technicians can take care of this for you or install a new fireplace insert to replace your existing one.
