Fireplace Damper Repair

Older masonry fireplaces often have what are called "poker"-style dampers. These types of dampers are usually made from cast iron and are subject to breakage, wear and rust. In addition, these types of dampers are very inefficient.

Top Mounted Dampers

If you do need a replacement damper, our top mounted chimney dampers are of the highest quality. Stainless Steel construction, Rain and Animal Protection are included with our quality top mounted damper systems.

Stove Pipe Dampers

Stove pipe dampers are installed in the connector pipe that runs from your stove to your chimney. Usually these types of dampers are used in older stoves to control the draft. Newer, modern wood-stoves typically do not use pipe dampers.

Factory Built Fireplace Dampers

Dampers in factory built fireplaces are usually a thin metal plate that is at the top of the firebox. These thin metal plate dampers are subject to rust and warpage, causing malfunctions in the draft and/or smoke damage and smoke smells.

Top mounted stainless steel flue dampers can save you money!

Does your damper not work right? Is it stuck open or even worse, closed? Your damper is an integral part of your fireplace or woodstove heating system. When the stove or fireplace is not in use, it is the damper's job to keep air in the house from escaping through the chimney. If your damper does not work correctly you could be losing money through the chimney in the form of your heating and cooling bills.

If the damper is unstable it could close in the middle of a fire and cause smoke damage to your house. In addition to that if the damper is installed incorrectly, sometimes the damper won't open completely and can cause performance issues with your fireplace.
