Common Fireplace Problems

1. Chimney Soot or Creosote Build-up

The build-up of soot or creosote within the fireplace is a common cause of many problems. Whether you are using a wood or gas fireplace, you still produce carbon monoxide, smoke, water vapor, soot and sometimes creosote during normal use.

2. Water Leaking into Firebox from Flue

 Fireplaces are often susceptible to water damage if a chimney leak is present. In fact, a leaky chimney can cause thousands of dollars in damage or lead to a water leak inside the home.

3. Firebox Damage

As you continually use your fireplace, the masonry can become damaged. You will typically see cracks flaking, staining, etc. When this happens, the heat from your fires can weaken the wood and frame surrounding the fireplace which can result in structural damage and even fire.

4. Broken Dampers Need Fixing or Replacement

The chimney fireplace damper will often serve as a “valve” that closes off the fireplace flue when not in use.When a damper doesn’t function properly, smoke may be held indoors or heating costs of your home would rise.

5. Gas Systems Need Regular Maintenance

While they may seem like a better option, gas fireplaces need servicing just as often as their wood-burning counterparts.

6. Smoke & Cold Air Coming Down Your Chimney

Smoke leaking from your fireplace and cold air coming down your chimney are common fireplace problems that every hearth lover has experienced at one time or another.

The Many Different Fireplace Parts

What is the Purpose of a Fireplace?

Although simple in appearance, the beauty and warmth received by a fireplace require it to be a carefully engineered appliance that, if maintained properly, can last for over 100 years.

At Full Service Chimney, we work to make your fireplace the cozy fixture it was meant to be with the same quality repair service that the residents of Kansas City have counted on for over thirty years.

Our Fireplace Has Two Jobs

  • Keep heat in the fireplace firebox from coming into contact with  nearby combustibles like walls, the mantle and flooring.
  • With the chimney’s help, the fireplace carries smoke and exhaust  upwards and out of the home for safe operation.

When to Replace your Fireplace

Fireplace replacement is often the only choice you will have when your prefabricated or outdated fireplace has outlived its ability to provide reliable performance and safety. Unfortunately, many older prefabricated fireplaces do not have replacement parts available and some older fireplaces lack the ability to be repaired due to their design. Whether you just want an updated look or need to protect your home from fire danger when in use, Full Service Chimney can help.

    Cost of Replacing a Fireplace

    New prefabricated fireplaces can be purchased at most big box stores for around $500; however, the bulk of the expense will likely come from the professional installation required for use. When factoring in the enjoyment and added value a new fireplace will provide to your home, the benefits outway the costs.

    What Our Customers Say

    I was highly impressed with the printed inspection report I was provided that included pictures of our fireplace and chimney with the corresponding recommendations. Our unit was unsafe and the home inspection company missed everything Full Service Chimney found. We are so thankful we took the recommendation to use Full Service Chimney. That promptly ordered the parts needed to repair our fireplace and chimney. Our unit was fixed the day after they received the parts. They did run into an issue and thoroughly explained what needed to be done and why. I was shown their completed work via iPad, no need for me to climb the roof for verification. I would recommend this company to anyone needing a fireplace or chimney inspection or repair.

    Ann

    All around excellent service I have nothing bad to say about this company.

    Michael

    Sam Berry came out to inspect my chimney & clean it. He used a camera to show me what made my fireplace unsafe to use. He explained in detail and provided me with a full report including pictures. He was able to schedule repair work for the next day. Shane, Lead Tech, and Jared came out on time. They were two very professional, polite and hard working young men. They covered all work areas and left everything clean after work was completed. They did a great job and went over everything with me including pictures of the completed work. They did a great job. I can’t wait to enjoy my first fire. I highly recommend this Company. I will be using them for my annual inspections and chimney maintenance.

    Joanne

    Everyone was very professional and courteous even when there was a problem with the gas line connection in the fireplace. They stayed until the problem was fixed which delayed their next project. I am very pleased with the results and the professionalism of everyone who worked on the project.  This was the second project at my home and was very pleased both times.  I highly recommend them for any chimney problem or project.
