Refractory Panels and Reflector Shields
We suggest replacing any panels cracked completely into separate pieces. Not replacing these panels can cause the warranty to be voided on the fireplace and flue pipe. Panels are made to only
absorb heat and will need to be replaced when cracking has completely separated the panel into two or more pieces. Hairline cracks are not an issue or a fire hazard. No warranty on replacement refractory panels due to usage of the fireplace is out of Masters Services control. Grates, crack panels, wood being placed into a already burning fire sometimes falls back on the panels creating cracks. Panels are made to break and absorb heat therefore no warranty is given. However, if a panel breaks (not a stress crack) within the first couple of fires call to discuss replacement for free. Reflector shields should be purchased for refractory panel protection. Lifetime warranty on all reflector shields.
Brick Work or Mortar Repairs
Lifetime Workmanship Warranty. General deterioration is going to start the day we have finished the work. Example: We repair a crack in the fireplace (tuck point). That crack reappears within
