We Rebuild Fireplace Fireboxes

Masonry fireplaces are traditionally made of firebrick, which is designed to withstand the heat produced during the combustion process. Over time, however, these bricks can become brittle and begin to break down. Chimneys, flue tiles, and fireboxes are like anything else – they can wear down and break over time, especially because they’re exposed to such brutal conditions. This can trigger the need for firebox repair services.

When your firebox begins to show signs of wear and tear, you only have a couple of options if you want to keep your fireplace a traditional wood-burning unit. You can choose to have the old firebox repaired or rebuilt using new firebrick, or you can have an Ahren-Fire fireplace installed.

Whichever option you go with, we’re here to help. And if you need any other chimney or fireplace repair services, we can help with that too. Call us at 763-422-0481 or schedule online with us today.

What Does a Firebox Rebuild Entail?

When we find that a firebox has deteriorated and is in need of extensive repairs, we quite often recommend a traditional firebox rebuild. This requires us to tear out the existing firebrick, then replace it using new firebrick and refractory mortar.

A firebox rebuild is usually a two-day process.

Now, fireboxes are not built like a normal brick structure, but rather, shaped and sloped inward. This design is intended to help achieve the ideal draft and to radiate heat – and if it’s built wrong, it’ll have a big impact on how much heat is pushed out into the room. For this reason, a firebox build or rebuild should never be left to an amateur.

Only a certified and experienced professional can guarantee a fireplace that’s efficient and won’t leak smoke and dangerous gases into your home.
