Reface

 Refacing a fireplace, is the process of taking an existing, somewhat ugly, outdated, or non functioning fireplace and remodeling it to look totally different.  It can be to add style, function, lower heating costs or change a focal point entirely.  We can do any part of the project or any part of it, from the actual mechanical parts, to the decorative, like tile, wood, stone, concrete, or other finish materials.  Most times, it is far less costly to rework, than replace an existing masonary fireplace.  No two jobs are ever the same, due to all the options at our disposal.  And, that’s what  makes it fun!  

Here are just a few before and after examples of our Fireplace Refacing and Repair:
