If your masonry fireplace is an important centerpiece for your room but it’s not looking or performing as you wish it would, Fire N’ Stone of Tilton, NH, has the solutions.
We provide a variety of services that can get your fireplace into top shape and make it safer, more efficient and more beautiful than ever.
Upgrade Your Hearth Area with a Fireplace Surround
A fireplace by itself is nice to look at, but what about the area surrounding it? One way to bring an instant upgrade to your hearth area is with a lovely new fireplace surround.
Our team of skilled masons custom-build stone fireplace surrounds and faux stone surrounds that magnify the good looks of your masonry fireplace. Surrounds can be broad or contained, using as much of the wall around the fireplace as you desire.
What about a Fireplace Mantel?
No fireplace is complete without a handsome mantel above it. Mantels not only look nice, but they also come in quite handy as display centers for portraits, antiques, floral arrangements, artwork, clocks, mirrors and anything else you want to show off.
We’ll expertly install a new pre-made or custom mantel to give your hearth area and fireplace a special visual appeal.
Chimney Cleaning for Safety
Your masonry fireplace and chimney work as a team, so it’s critical that your chimney flue is kept clean. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps focus on two things with chimney cleaning jobs:
- Remove flammable creosote that builds up in the flue every time you burn a fire
- Remove any obstructions that might be present such as tree debris and the nests of small animals
Annual chimney cleaning drastically reduces the chance of a chimney fire and brings you another very important benefit.
Clean Flues = More Efficient Fires
A clean flue allows smoke to draft more efficiently and allows fires to burn hotter and better. Burning logs need air (oxygen) to fully combust, and a clean chimney flue is the way your fireplace draws this air into itself.
Masonry fireplaces aren’t known for their high heat production to begin with, but you can help them to work optimally with regular chimney cleaning. You’ll get more complete burns and more heat for your dollar.
In addition to cleaning chimneys, we provide smoke chamber parging, which will enhance your fireplace’s performance and safety.
