For Expert Firebox Rebuilds & Renovations, Call The Chimney Guy
The firebox of your fireplace is right in the heart of it all, hosting the fire itself and taking all the abuse that the fire throws at it, year after year. Naturally, this area of the fireplace is going to be exposed to the highest temperatures and the most abusive byproducts of combustion, which is why no ordinary brick and mortar is used during its construction. Instead, the firebox is constructed from firebrick and refractory mortar, both designed to take the highest temperatures unfazed and radiate heat back into the home.
Are There Cracks & Holes Throughout Your Firebox?
Although firebrick and refractory mortar are stronger than traditional brick and mortar, they can still undergo damage and need replacing. You may start to notice cracks in the brick or holes and gaps in the mortar of your firebox, which can be unsightly, yes, but also dangerous.
As the host of the fire, the firebox contains incredibly high temperatures, hot ash, flying sparks, and gases like carbon monoxide. When everything is in great condition and working properly, these things are escorted up the chimney so they can exit the home – but when holes and cracks are present in the firebox, trouble can arise. High heat, sparks, and toxic gases can enter those cracks and holes, igniting nearby combustibles (like wall framing or insulation) or polluting the air supply. That’s why it’s imperative that any damage in the firebox be promptly repaired – and we’re the team to do it!
