Often, problems seem to be much too complex for our competitors to rectify. You may have countless years of aggravation and could spend thousands of dollars trying to fix your fireplace problem due to the lack of experience most have. Repairing a fireplace is not something just any chimney sweep or mason can complete successfully!
In fact, this is a specialty trade that takes a skilled fireplace mason to build. Who better to complete your fireplace repair than someone who not only knows how to build them but also understands the science behind why they work or won’t work. We have the knowledge and experience to properly diagnose and repair any fireplace problem.

If you have a larger project, once it is started we will not leave for another job, we will work on it daily until completed. On your job, you will have a specialist in the area of repair required. As an example, a mason will NOT install your stainless steel chimney liner.
The smoke chamber is another area that needs some attention. This is located above the fireplace damper (the handle you use to push the small door.) This area of the fireplace is where the first flue tile meets the smoke chamber. Voids, gaps, and corbels are potential problems that may exist. This is known as the “Hot Spot” of your fireplace, this area can also act as a bottleneck, preventing the exhaust from drafting smoothly up the chimney causing smoke to leak back into the room. If there are voids or cracks this can be a real fire hazard. Repairs to this area are a bit more serious, but can usually be rectified for a reasonable cost. To resurface the average smoke chamber it will run $500 – $750 and could go higher.

The damper is another very common fireplace repair problem. We get numerous calls about cold air leaking into the room through the fireplace. When we arrive we generally find out 1 of 3 things.
1.The damper is missing or wide open and there is a huge hole, no way to stop the cold air from down drafting.
2.If there is debris preventing the damper from properly closing, they usually fall off track.
3.The damper is closed and functioning as it was intended. (There is no seal around the damper door or frame.)
There is almost always an easy low-cost solution. We find these to be the two most common. If you need a replacement top mount energy-saving damper the average cost will be between $299.99 – $450 depending on the size of your fireplace flue tiles and the difficulty of the installation. We carry many different sizes in our chimney service vehicles. The second is a chimney sweep! Yes, that’s right a chimney cleaning, costing only $169.99.
In such a competitive world with many options, we have come to find only 3 reasonable solutions to having your fireplace flue repaired.
1. Terracotta Flue Tiles– Usually original to the home. Replacement can be more costly.
2. Stainless Steel Chimney Liners – Economical solution. Chimney liners are as good, if not better than terracotta tiles. Usually completed in one day.
3. Spray Flue Liners – Several layers are sprayed inside the current flue. The coating seals all small holes and cracks and strengthens the chimney. A very good solution for old fireplaces without flue tiles or a smoke chamber. Usually completed in one day.
