Frequently Asked Questions
Smoke Chamber Repairs

A smoke chamber is the area above the fireplace firebox (where you see the fire) and below the chimney flue. This area funnels smoke from the fireplace opening into the liner of the chimney. The smoke chamber is the one of the most important parts of a fireplace system – and is commonly constructed improperly. Chimney Savers employs several techniques to parge (or coat) this smoke chamber, allowing your fireplace to work more efficiently and safely. Read more about parging and parging techniques in our blog post, All About Smoke Chamber Parging. 

Fireplace Firebox Repair

A firebox is the area of the masonry that contains the fire in your fireplace. Although the bricks found in this area are usually rated to withstand very hot temperatures, they can still degrade over time. During your annual inspection, we pay close attention to this area, and our staff of masons can rebuild or repoint any damage to your fireplace firebox.
