Repairing or replacing my wood-burning fireplace - help needed

7 years ago

Hello all,

New member here. Looking for some advice on how to fix-up my wood-burning fireplace, for my townhouse that I bought a year and a half ago. I'm done DIY painting, laying down tile, remodeling bathrooms, putting up a new fence...anyone else who's a home-owner knows it never ends :-)

There is significant cracking and deterioration in the refractory material of the fireplace. Failing refractory panels are obviously a concern for fire safety. See pictures below.

Can I repair this? Is the refractory material supposed to be able to be taken out and able to be replaced? What are my options here?
