Wood Fireplace Repair

We Provide Professional Wood Fireplace Repair Services

Wood fireplace repair is a big part of what we do at Sweep Your Chimney.  A wood fireplace is seen as one of the best ways to heat a home during the cold winter months of the year and as a way to save money on energy costs. A wood fireplace adds an exceptional visual appeal to a home simultaneously as it is cost-effective. Many people prefer the warmth of a wood-burning fireplace over gas or the newer electronic fireplaces.

Keeping Your Fireplace Looking & Functioning Like New

At Sweep Your Chimney, we install wood-burning fireplaces in existing spaces or new construction. They are easy to use and work the same way as traditional fireplaces. We replace old fireboxes with contemporary wood-burning fireplaces. Wood burning fireplaces are high efficiency and can heat large parts or all of your home.

We install wood fireplaces, inserts, and stoves year-round. Appropriate permits and inspections are obtained to meet local code requirements. All work is performed to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Drafting Problems Indicated By Excessive Smoke Outside the Chimney

Many factors can cause drafting problems, but two of the major factors include the temperature difference between the flue gas and the outside and an improper height of the chimney. Excessive smoking from your fireplace and chimney can also be the result of:

  • Blockages in the flue, chimney cap, or screening
  • An incorrect chimney height, flue, or throat size
  • Damper location
  • Smoke chamber/shelf design
  • Air leaks within the chimney
  • Inadequate air supply

Once we determine the cause of the chimney drafting problem, we will recommend a solution or wood fireplace repair and restoration if needed.

Wood Fireplace Repair

At Sweep Your Chimney, we specialize in identifying your fireplace issue and then repairing it. Your wood-burning fireplace will be operating at an efficient and enjoyable level for the family and your home.
