To ensure the highest standard of craftsmanship, customer service and competitive pricing, the owner/mason is on site from start to finish on each and every project. We specialize in tuckpointing (which is the process of grinding out old mortar joints and packing new, fresh mortar in its place), brick replacement, and smoke stain removal, and can restore your fireplace to its original glory. This statement-making fireplace was custom designed and fabricated by Concretework’s Mark Rogero.
Exposed brick with surrounding millwork looks timeless and can be a great way to update an older brick fireplace. And both projects cost us absolutely nothing other than time and sweat as we had all the materials. Keeping your fireplace and chimney operating at its best makes good sense, protecting your family and home from fire and smoke damage.
The combination of the outdated walls, the dark wood floors, and the burnt red brick fireplace made this space dark and uninviting. A high quality Fireplace Remodeling project in an appropriate neighborhood can return as much as 77% – 91% of its initial cost.
In cases where the overall look of the fireplace area is fine but its operation is a problem, replacing the entire unit can be a smart move. A fireplace is an architectural element consisting of a space designed to contain a fire, generally for heating but sometimes also for cooking.
It would have appeared to have been pasted on and wouldn’t have the more realistic and permanent feature that a stone fireplace should have. The fireplace is often the most commanding element in any room it’s in. Size and abundance of material are often factors, but as renovation specialist Ron Parko points out, our eyes are naturally drawn to the darkest object in a room anyway.
