Decorative Facing/Damper Frames
Did you know that the brickwork you often see surrounding your fireplace opening is just a façade of bricks that conceals a flammable 2×4 stud wall?!
This Façade is called “Decorative Facing” and it’s not actually a part of the chimney or fireplace itself! Decorative Facing simply covers the flammable 2×4’s which make up the wall.
If your Fireplace’s brickwork is not sealed properly to this brick façade (decorative facing) hot gases or open flame could migrate up into the wall stud cavity and start a fire!
If your decorative facing isn’t properly sealed to your firebox, DO NOT CONTINUE TO BURN FIRES UNTIL THESE GAPS ARE SEALED PROPERLY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURE REFRACTORY CEMENT! A to Z’s certified chimney sweep technicians are experts at making sure your fire stays where it belongs: in your fireplace!
Even with prefabricated units, the firebox or the fireplace could need repair, so ask A to Z if you are a candidate for this service.
