Firebrick Replacement

The best option is a complete firebrick replacement in cases where there is extensive damage to the firebrick, such as cracking, chipping, and crumbling. A skilled mason removes the existing firebrick, replacing it with brand new firebrick in your choice of style and color for a traditional or contemporary fireplace appearance.


Tuckpointing may be a viable option when the firebrick is still in good condition but has missing or decaying mortar. Firebox tuckpointing is a technique that skilled masons use. It involves scooping out any remaining decayed mortar and filling it with new refractory mortar color-matched to the existing brickwork. When the work is complete, your firebox will be restored with a like-new appearance.
