According to MSN.com (Microsoft’s portal) “House & Home Adviser,” adding a fireplace is one of the top three remodeling jobs in terms of return on investment (the other two are adding a bathroom and minor kitchen remodeling).
Studies show that homeowners can often recoup more than 100% of the cost of adding a fireplace when they sell the home. In fact, according to the National Association of Real Estate Appraisers, homeowners without fireplaces can potentially raise the selling prices of their homes by about 6-12% simply by adding a fireplace.
Do you enjoy the crackle and smell of burning real wood? Then you must see our selection of high efficiency wood burning fireplaces. We also sell all the components needed to build a masonry wood burning fireplace. With these components you can construct a traditional, Kiva (arched), or Rumford (tall opening with shallow depth) style fireplace. Customers enjoy the design variety as well as the affordability of these fireplace styles.
You can also construct a modular masonry fireplace, a fireplace kit made of Pumice (a lightweight, fire-proof material). This fireplace is highly heat efficient, is easier to install than most traditional, Kiva, or Rumford fireplaces, is lighter which allows flexibility with location (second floor for example), and takes up less space.
