    Here are 3 Expert Tips for any Fireplace Restoration:Fireplace Restoration

    1. Bring it to Code – Whether you need to reline the flue or install additional pieces of equipment it is important to ensure that your updated fireplace is not only attractive but also safe.  Although many of the chimney practices used a hundred years ago remain true today there is also much that has changed.  Partner with a professional to ensure that your system is given the care it needs both cosmetically as well as structurally.
       
    2. Reclaimed Pieces work Best – If your home is missing one of the main components of the fireplace it is always best to try to use pieces directly from that era.  While you may not want to reuse structural supplies, reclaimed mantels and surrounds are a great way to keep true to the home’s original appeal while recycling materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
       
    3. Beauty is in the Details – What often sets historic homes apart from their newer counterparts are the handcrafted, intricate detail work that is often found throughout the living space including the fireplace and mantel.  It is often worth the effort and expense to incorporate these aspects back into the home for a truly unique and beautiful design.
