Brick is the most common fireplace material, but that doesn’t mean yours needs to be boring and ordinary. Many San Diego new home construction or home improvement construction projects involve home owners hiring San Diego fireplace and chimney contractors to design and build a new chimney or fireplace. We can also install a wall mount fireplace so that you don’t take up more room in your home than necessary.
Also, keep in mind a natural gas basement fireplace can produce warmth for the entire basement, rec room or family room, plus it has a beautiful natural gas flame. The face is the decorative surround which is usually made out of brick and installed to the sides and above the fireplace.
But you can’t just turn any old fireplace into a visual masterpiece—that’s where the expert craftsmen at Hatfield Builders & Remodelers make the difference. 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.
We have become so good at this that many times we can do this cheaper than modifying an existing fireplace with considerably better results. We purchased a couple of leather chairs at World Market to create a comfortable sitting area in front of the fireplace.

We had all five of our fireplaces restored, the most dramatic being the kitchen fireplace, which was a small brick which we turned into a large stone.
