Fireplace Restoration in Chapel Hill, NC

Few things conquer the chill of a winter’s night in North Carolina better than the warmth and ambiance of a wood-burning fireplace.

When to Consider Fireplace Restoration

A traditional wood-burning fireplace can add charm and value to any home, but if it is in disrepair, it can impact your comfort, as well as your health and safety. To protect your home and your family, it is important to consider a fireplace restoration in the following cases:

  • The fireplace damper is corroded, stuck, or does not open and close properly. An inoperable damper can increase your heating costs and potentially allow combustion gases to enter the room.
  • Fireplace bricks are spalling or damaged. When bricks begin to flake, crack, crumble, or fall out, it is an indication that moisture has damaged your fireplace or chimney, leading to possible instability, leaks, or safety issues.
  • The mortar is cracked, damaged, or missing. Damaged mortar can allow combustion gases like carbon monoxide to leak into your home,  which can affect the structural integrity of your fireplace and chimney.
  • The chimney is leaning or damaged. If the chimney crown is damaged, bricks are missing, or the chimney is leaning, it is unsafe to use the fireplace until the chimney is repaired.
  • A chimney fire has occurred. If a fire has expanded beyond the firebox and into the chimney, the chimney itself may be damaged, and it will be unsafe to use the fireplace until the problem has been addressed.
