In Need Of Firebox Repairs? Leave It To Our Team Of Fireplace Experts
Ah, you’re ready to enjoy a fire in your fireplace — but is your fireplace ready? The firebox — which is the portion of your fireplace that actually holds the logs and fire — may be cracked, crumbling, or otherwise unsafe and unable to contain the heat, sparks, and ashes produced by the fire. If so, a nice enjoyable night by the fire could turn into something else altogether.
Our company, Sweeps & Ladders, was founded by a former Franklin firefighter, so if there’s one thing we’re passionate about, it’s about protecting our neighbors in Nashville, Franklin, and Brentwood against the hazards and devastation of fire. We believe that, with proper education, annual inspections, and professional repairs, the majority of house and chimney fires can be prevented — and that’s what we’re here to do.
How The Firebox Gets Damaged & Why Repairs Should Be Made ASAP
Because the firebox itself holds the actual fire and contains the intense heat and burning embers produced by the fire, it’s imperative that this area of the fireplace be free of damage and properly insulated to prevent the transfer of heat. But its location and role can lead to damage, like cracked firebrick, receding mortar joints, or deteriorating firebox panels.
Once gaps, cracks, and deterioration occur within the firebox itself, heat, hot embers, stray sparks, and smoke can exit through the cracks and gaps, and come into contact with nearby framing and combustibles, sparking a house fire.
Obviously, we want to keep you and your family protected against such dangers so you can enjoy worry-free, warm, cozy nights by the fireside. If your firebox is damaged and in need of repair, don’t light another fire in your fireplace without first calling Sweeps & Ladders.
Long-Lasting & Effective Firebox Repairs Are Only A Phone Call Away
Our team of Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified chimney sweeps will thoroughly inspect your firebox, identify any areas of concern, notify you of any necessary repairs, and restore your firebox to its former glory.
