Fireplace Tearouts and Fireplace makeovers

Would you like to start from scratch with your fireplace?

A fireplace is one of the most eye drawing features of a room. Many older homes have large brick fireplaces which cover an entire wall and can seem to be a harsh contrast. If you own an older home, or are simply looking for a change, you may wish to update the fireplace and surrounding wall to better reflect your personal taste and style. As with most remodeling projects, it is important to hire a professional to guide the process. If you are wanting to remodel or tear out your old fireplace, call Fireplace Concepts for help. You will want a trained specialist on the job to ensure the integrity of your home is not compromised.

I don’t have gas in my current fireplace, how much will it cost Convert?

Installing a gas line and either vented or vent-free fireplace logs will vary in price. The price will vary depending on the size of fireplace you have and the types of logs you are adding. Expect to pay more if installers are challenged to get the gas line to your fireplace. One example would be if your fireplace is in an interior wall.

The price varies on the size of the fireplace and if there is a chimney that needs to be removed as well.

The floor in front of a fireplace is called the hearth. The part of a hearth which projects into a room may be called the front or outer hearth. Some fireplaces have a hearthstone or a large stone or other materials used as the hearth material. This is crucial for keeping the home’s integrity if you enjoy burning wood.

Removing an old fireplace involves three main steps. 

  1. Remove the surround. (i.e: brick, stone, tile covering the existing fireplace) 
  2. Removing a Raised Hearth (if applicable).
  3. Potential re-framing for installing the new unit. Because all fireplaces are not built the same, we need to get them to where they can be installed properly.
