Wood Stove Inserts

Woodstove inserts are constructed out of cast iron and are placed inside the opening of the existing masonry fireplace. These inserts are heavy and more difficult to clean, because the job requires the chimney technician to move the inserts out of the fireplace far enough to crawl behind the insert.
Access behind the insert is required to clean inside the fireplace and areas like the smoke chamber and smoke shelf. A properly lined wood stove insert has a direct connect liner to the top of the chimney— therefore removal of the wood stove is not required and no additional cost is required.
