Fireplace Remodel and Installation
Fireplaces can be the main focal point in a home for many. A fireplace can make or break a room. A updated, functional fireplace increases the value of the property.
Fireplace remodeling is something that many homeowners do and there are basically an endless amount of ideas to choose from,
Replacing the fireplace facing
Designing and installing a raised hearth area
Modernizing outdated fireplaces
Add a fireplace insert to a wood or gas fireplace
Types of Fireplaces
Direct Vent Gas Fireplaces
Direct vent is by far the most common venting method when it comes to fireplaces. When the gas fireplace starts up, exhaust passes through the inner pipe to the outdoors, while the outer pipe brings in fresh air for combustion, transmitting it directly to the bottom of the sealed firebox, where it ignites the unit. The outer pipe also helps insulate surrounding combustible components from heat traveling through the system. The direct vent fireplace unit is sealed off from the home’s interior with a high-temperature glass panel and protective screen, so any flames or combustion byproducts are completely separated from the air in your home.

An electric fireplace is simply an electric heater that mimics a fireplace burning coal or wood. When renovating a home, people often opt to replace their old, conventional fireplace with an electric one because of the various benefits they have to offer. Electric fireplaces are powered by a plug in your wall, so no fumes are being released into your home. Because it is not actually burning wood to produce heat, it is low maintenance and easy to clean. Using an electric fireplace is extremely simple, and its appearance can be designed in a wide range of unique ways! They are a great, stylish and safe choice for your home.
Isokern & Masonite Fireplaces
These fireplaces are modular masonry fireplace systems that provide the insulation and refractory properties of masonry, without the bulk and weight. These chimney systems are unique from many other prefabricated fireplaces in that they use a dual modular refractory chimney. This chimney design uses both an inner liner and outer casing to maximize insulation and minimize heat transfer. This design feature allows more flexibility in building and installation.
Vent Free Fireplace
Clean and aesthetically pleasing fireplaces with no venting and very little maintenance. Ventless fireplaces are a type of fireplace that pipes natural gas or propane into a gas-burning unit. The flames reach up through gaps in artificial ceramic fiber logs. They're actually designed to burn gas more efficiently than vented versions, so they produce less fumes and don't require a flue or a chimney.
Zero Clearance Fireplace
Most fireplaces are likely either masonry built, or zero clearance. Zero-clearance fireplaces make it possible to enjoy a safe, cozy and warm fireplace in just about any room. Zero clearance fireplaces, on the other hand, are manufactured fireboxes that are fire-rated to that no (zero) clearance is required between the firebox and construction materials like wood framing and sheetrock.
Wood Burning Stoves
Wood stoves are available in styles ranging from traditional to contemporary, and are constructed of cast iron, plate steel, sheet metal, soapstone, tile, or a combination of these materials. Many newer models boast large, see-through, self-cleaning glass doors that allow you to enjoy the firelight, without spending too much time keeping the window clear. Other modern conveniences that come standard on many of today's models include removable ash pans, insulated door handles, thermostats, and air circulators or blowers.
