Take a look at your fireplace, look at the mantel, the "hard to open" metal and glass door, the worn old floor hearth. Is this the focal point of your room? When was the last time you updated it, 20 or 50 years ago? Is your fireplace dated red brick? Maybe a painted and repainted wood mantel?

Update the entire look or just the oldest parts a la carte…

• Cover the old red brick face with Natural Stone, or Polished Granite
• Replace raised hearth stone with a new 2 inch stone
• Point the Inside Firebox brick work for safety
• Change your old painted Mantel to Stone, New Wood or Precast Stone
• Add a TV above the mantel with buried power and HDMI
• Replace the Inlaid floor tile with a new granite slab and wood frame
• Replace the old brass cover with a new easy to use Screen and glass front


Have you installed a new gas insert or a new wood burning insert? Are you concerned with clearance and code issues? Let our masonry licensed pro recommend the best materials for a safe fireplace.


If you are thinking about adding a TV over the Mantel, our electrician can run HDMI CABLES and Power into the wall for Cable and Video game box controls.

The 3 images below are examples of Cast Stone Mantels and Surrounds from the manufacturer. This illustrates how Cast stone solves a problem. When a new wood burning manufacturer insert calls for clearances that move a wood mantel too far up a wall. Switching to Precast brings your mantel back down to a reasonable height.
