Changing your fireplace can be a little sticky. You have to keep in mind
that it is fire, and fire has to have rules in order to be controlled. Wood
and other combustibles have to be kept at a safe distance and even the
wrong paint applied too close to a fireplace can be a problem.
There are many ways to change a fireplace. You can change the looks,
the fuel, or everything about it. We have been changing fireplaces for
many years and have seen about every worst case scenario.
The most extreme change to a fireplace is starting over, or adding a
new fireplace to an existing home. We have become so good at this that
many times we can do this cheaper than modifying an existing fireplace
with considerably better results. We can remove a fireplace, install a
new fireplace and reface the walls in under a week most of the time.
If that seems like too much, or you just want to change a little about your
fireplace or stove, we can help. We offer inserts that turn old, drafty
fireplaces into high-efficiency heaters, whether you want to burn wood,
gas or pellets. We also offer gas and electric logs if you just want the
ambience of a fire without the hassel of wood.
