Firebox and Firebrick (Refractory Brick) Repair

Top Hat Chimney rebuilds fireplace fireboxesThe firebox of your fireplace is usually built from a special kind of brick known as firebrick. Firebrick are made to withstand high temperatures and have lower thermal conductivity than normal brick. The bricks are bonded with a high temperature mortar often called refractory mortar.

Over time and usage, sometimes the firebrick and mortar in the fireplace start to deteriorate. This is especially true when the chimney does not have a flue cap to protect from rain entering the system. Water that gets into the fireplace will often deteriorate the mortar holding the bricks together.

Due to the thermal protection of the firebrick in your fireplace, it is EXTREMELY important that there be no holes or gaps in the firebox. It is the closest part of the fireplace to the actual fire. When there are holes or gaps, heat can transfer into places of the fireplace structure that were not intended to contain high temperatures.

Top Hat Chimney replacing a FireplaceAnother hazard is having a brick fall into the fire as the fireplace is in use. There have been cases where firebrick have become so loose that sometimes the brick will actually fall out of the wall. If this happens while a fire is in progress, the falling brick can send embers out of the fireplace and into the room.

Call Top Hat today to schedule your fireplace inspection and we can let you know if your firebox needs some TLC!
