From the article:

Number of years brick ovens like this are expected to last:

The base may last forever; the top needs to be rebuilt after 10 years


Wow. All these SF ovens in the US are going to need a new dome in 10 years?

John,  I think its only the floor that will need replacing,  there is no wear on the dome right? -marc

Not sure - I don't know how "top" is defined there. The SF ovens are built in two sections if they are built-in (non-mobile), top and bottom. So we need further clarification. I would have thought they just would have used the word "floor" if that's what they meant. The dome has hundreds of mortar joints, so I am not sure what the thermal implications are compared to the floor. They are different materials as well.

Something seems to be wrong, you have to close for weeks for the oven to be rebuilt?

There are a couple things wrong in that article anyways so they probably got the part about "replacing the top" wrong as well. Someone who went to the VPN school in Italy told me that the oven floors get replaced every 4 years. That probably applies to the places that are busy everyday. The best person to answer this question is Ron from Il Pizzaiolo since he has had an oven the longest.

My thoughts also, something just doesn't ring true in that article. It would not be easy but it is possible to work through the door and remove and replace the floor.
