FIREPLACE REPLACEMENT IN IDAHO FALLS & the Surrounding Areas
We use our fireplaces a lot in Idaho and for good reason: They add extra warmth to our homes. But, a fireplace only works as well as it functions, and some fireplaces simply do not function well at all. A poorly–performing fireplace isn’t just a nuisance; it can be a serious safety issue, particularly if it is in use. Poor drafting, backdrafting, and smoke blowing back into your home are just some of the signs that your fireplace may need replacement, and if this is the case, it’s time to give our experts a call. Just as you can’t put a pro hockey player on a pitcher’s mound, you can’t use any heating specialist to replace your home’s fireplace. Fireplace replacement requires the expertise of a trained specialist who can successfully perform fireplace work, and we have those specialists here at Advanced Home Services.

Reasons to Call for Fireplace Replacement
We all have that vision of smoke pouring out from our fireplace, causing everyone in the room to cough and sputter. While this can happen, it is rarely that dramatic, nor does it automatically mean it’s time for fireplace replacement. However, there are some signs that can indicate your fireplace is not sound, and it is these signs of which you need to stay aware:
- Crumbling masonry – many fireplaces are made of some kind of masonry, very often brick, especially in homes that are more than 40 years old. There are a few reasons why masonry can crumble, but the main cause is the entry of water. Once water gets inside the masonry of your fireplace, it leeches out the important salts and minerals from the material, which weakens the structure. If you’ve ever seen bricks with a white, powdery substance on the surface, you’ve seen masonry that has been affected by water. Crumbling masonry can be extremely dangerous for a fireplace, so if you are seeing a great deal of it on yours, it may be time to consider replacement.
- Design issues – indoor fireplaces are not like outdoor fire pits: you can’t just create a space for the fire and toss up a chimney. There are specific design practices involved in creating a properly–working chimney and fireplace, and if your fireplace has poor design, it will need to be corrected.
- You want to upgrade your current fireplace – whether you want to widen your fireplace or create a whole new look, you’ll have to call an expert for a fireplace replacement.
