This type of fireplace does not need a chimney because it vents through the wall at the back of the fireplace. We opted to work around a total demolition of the old brick façade by installing horizontal 12×24 stone tiles over the existing brick. Simple remodeling like paint touch ups or installing a new mantle piece are easy to do and this can drastically change the appearance of an old fireplace and it’s also a great way to save money!
