What are my Fireplace Restoration Options?
There are a lot of different options for restoring a fireplace. Sometimes, one of the simplest things we do that can have a big impact is cleaning your masonry. Cleaning years of soot and salts from your masonry can make a big difference in your fireplace look. However, some homeowners want to do more than this and opt for a total refacing. Refacing basically gives your fireplace a whole new look by removing the current face and installing a new one. Refacing gives you a very broad variety of options in terms of design and materials used. Some commonly used materials include more traditional options such a brick and stone, contemporary options such as tiling, and luxurious materials such as marble and granite. No matter your desire, we know how to use these materials to design and construct a fireplace that you will be happy with.
