Leave Your Damaged Smoke Chamber To Us!
Your chimney’s smoke chamber has a tough job. It sits just above the fireplace damper and funnels all the smoke and byproducts created by the fire up into the chimney flue. The purpose of the smoke chamber is to get those products out of the chimney system fast, so that they don’t linger and settle along the flue walls as flammable and corrosive creosote or waft back into your home.
But sometimes, smoke chambers need a little TLC to get them back in good condition so they can continue to do the hard work — and we can help by parging the smoke chamber smooth.
How Do You Know If Your Smoke Chamber Needs To Be Parged Smooth?
- If the brick used to construct your smoke chamber has holes in it.
- If there are gaps between the bricks in the smoke chamber.
- If the smoke chamber has a corbel step pattern.
- If the smoke chamber is rough and deteriorating on the surface.
- If the smoke chamber needs extra insulation to prevent heat transfer.
- If an inspection reveals cracks, damage, or poor design.
Smoke chambers that have cracks, holes, or corbel steps can slow the exit of byproducts and smoke, and allow these, as well as the heat and stray sparks of the fire, to access framing and other combustibles in the walls surrounding the chimney.
Not only is a damaged smoke chamber unsafe — it can also ruin your fireside experience. When smoke and byproducts can’t quickly exit the chimney and instead come back into your home, it can be difficult to enjoy a nice, relaxing night by the fire. And if you can’t enjoy your fireplace, what’s the point in having one?
If smoke is running you out of the room every time you have a fire in your fireplace, your fireplace is a poor performer, or you’ve been told your smoke chamber is in bad shape, call on Top Hat Chimney & Roofing, Inc.’s team of highly trained, enthusiastic professionals. We specialize in smoke chamber repair and restoration, and we’ll make sure your smoke chamber is air-tight, insulated, and smooth.
