Fireplace Remodels

Bathroom remodels and kitchen remodels are amazing ways to transform your home, but they can also be expensive, time consuming and intrusive. Just make sure to install the fireplace in accordance with all local building codes and the manufacturer’s specifications. Make sure that you are aware of the building codes in your community in order to plan for your outdoor fireplace. Iron sconces and a custom iron fireplace doo r in Mediterranean style with lighting to match will give you that unexpected element.

While the changes that we made to the rest of this great room went beyond a weekend project, the fireplace was installed in a snap. In order to heat the first floor, we covered the fireplace with taped Hefty bags which were most unattractive, but mildly entertaining since the bags moved in and out and gave the fireplace a life of its own.fireplace remodel

The drywall and tile went to landfill, but the used fireplace brick was given away free on Craigslist to someone for a landscaping project. One of my pet peeves is the TV remodelers who show their audience how easy it is to just add a new mantel or facial wall finish to a fireplace without talking about codes and clearances to combustible materials.

Other than brick, you could take a look at a stone fireplace design or even a limestone fireplace as well. Authentic Fireplaces has helped many San Diegan’s remodel and restore their fireplace to fit the look and feel of their home. We also wanted the new fireplace surround to go all the way to the ceiling for a more modern/dramatic look.

Perhaps one of our most drastic transformations, the old wall was removed and a modern limestone tile fireplace with clean, crisp lines built in its place! The original fireplace was made from 1970s era red brick, and looked a little dated. Start with a base coat of inexpensive drywall mud if you have a textured wall, or if you want to remodel a brick fireplace.fireplace remodelfireplace remodel
