Fireplace Installation

Fireplaces are stylistic centerpieces, anchoring the appearance and living experience of an outdoor space or room. Thus, it’s installation should factor the following:

  • Size are available in a variety whose selection should depend on the size of the designated space in your room and the preferred style.
  • Fuel – gas, and wood are the widely available fuel types for use in inserts and fireplaces. Each has its merits and demerits and, thus, the choice should be a matter of preference. However, avoid chemicals and wet or rotten wood. Use the right local fuel and store it properly.
  • Mantel – mantels serve to catch ash, soot, and smoke, which makes it a key design element. Mantels have a variety of designs, texture, colors, and materials to choose from; therefore, consider matching them to the rest of the room. Also, consider its size in proportion to your entire fireplace.
  • Future costs – running costs should govern the type of insert or fireplace to be installed.
  • Heating efficiency – settle for zero-clearance that are efficient enough to offset the high cost of energy in winter.
  • Safety and building codes – take into account the recommended gas line positioning, allowed emission levels, among other things.
  • Functional fire extinguisher – a single fire ember can start a devastating house fire; thus, it’s best to stay prepared.

When installing, avoid these mistakes:

  • Sizing mistakes
  • Gaps around its opening
  • Inadequate air source – remember an adequate airflow is needed to prevent smoke and carbon monoxide accumulation, which could be disastrous if unchecked.
  • Fire building too far into the fireplace
  • Relying on your DIY abilities when lacking adequate skills to safely install the fireplace
  • Hiring unqualified labor

Fireplace Repair

A fireplace hearth is an essential heating component of your home; thus, it should have ample reparative maintenance. Yes, don’t wait until the fall for you to do some thorough inspections.

Be on the lookout of the following telltales that may need replacement or repairs.

Signs that your fireplace needs urgent replacement or repairs

  • Cracked mortar joints – as masonry units are porous, they can absorb moisture, making it easier for them to breakdown or develop cracks.
  • Spalling bricks at the bottom of your fireplace – which are common when low-quality mortar with incorrect compression rate; is used.
  • A severely rusted damper – is indicative of excessive moisture, a sign of a broken waterproofing lining.
  • Chimney fires – for a fire to combust inside the chimney, it may mean that the mantel is lacking in its purpose of catching fire embers, which call for an urgent repair or replacement.
  • A damaged chimney crown – cannot protect against external weather and other elements. To know more specifically about chimney repairs, issues, and inspection, visit our chimney section.

Dangers associated with a damaged fireplace
