Wood Fireplaces

Free wooden fireplace quotes from local pros

There’s nothing quite like the crackle of a wood fire to help you feel warm and cozy. Wood fireplaces can even be installed in existing structures and are ideal for heating a home whenever there is a power outage. We have lots of professional contractors in our network who will build a quality fireplace for you, and one of the best ways of reaching them is by filling out the form you see below.

Features of Wood Fireplaces

When it comes to designing wood fireplaces, the sky is the limit. This fixture can be made from a variety of materials including concrete, natural stone or brick. It can also include a mantel made of wood, brick, ceramic or fibreglass. In addition to being constructed from different materials, other features can be installed including:

  • Chimney liners that help keep this area clean
  • Utility lines so that gas or electric logs can also be burned
  • Inserts that keep the inside of the fireplace clean while adding decorative touches
  • Damper chains that make it easy to open and close this mechanism
  • Clean-out doors which help with ash removal
  • Raised hearths which double as seating space or an area to hold wood on

Things to Consider when Building

No two wood fireplaces are the same, and the one that’s right for you requires a great deal of planning. The size of the room can affect fireplace dimensions, since a larger unit may be needed in a bigger room. Local building codes may dictate how a fireplace is constructed. It’s important to add flashing around the top of the chimney at the roofline in order to keep water from getting into your house. When choosing a contractor, the quality of work matters. It is important to choose a builder that is familiar with fireplace construction in order to ensure that repairs will not be needed a short time later.

Where can Fireplaces be Located?

Although wood fireplaces are typically found in a living room or den, they can actually be useful anywhere. A few of the places you may want to consider putting a fireplace in are:

  1. Kitchens and dining rooms to provide an area that is ideal for entertaining
  2. Bedrooms in order to allow for a cozy atmosphere
  3. Outdoor patios to make enjoying your backyard during cooler weather more enjoyable
  4. Workshops or garages so that these buildings can be heated economically
  5. Bed and breakfast inns to create an inviting seating area for guests

Fireplace Repairs

It might be necessary to have your new wood fireplace repaired because they can become damaged by storms or through normal wear and tear. If you notice loose or crumbling mortar, this is a sign that repairs need to be made. You may also want to call a repair engineer if you have trouble operating the damper or notice a great deal of smoke coming into the room when burning wood. Regular cleanings should be performed by a rated chimney sweep; however, doing so does not suffice for having repairs done whenever they become necessary.

Wood Fireplace Costs

The cost of wood fireplaces can depend on the type of material used to construct them, their sizes, and local building codes. It is generally cheaper to install one in new construction because adding one to an existing building could require extensive modifications. The types of features your fireplace has can also increase the cost since adding them might require additional labour. When repairing a chimney, an estimate can be based on the extent of damage and the cost of materials needed to make the repairs.

Your wood fireplace questions answered

What are the benefits of wood fireplaces?

Wood fireplaces are not only beautiful and an aesthetic addition to a home, but they're a great supplemental heat source. They can be used to heat one room when heat throughout a whole house isn't needed. They're also cost-effective because they utilise a readily available fuel resource.

Where can wood fireplaces be installed?

Wood fireplaces can be installed in areas of the home where a chimney or ventilation system is possible. Customer service representatives can evaluate the home and tell clients where wood fireplaces would be possible.

Can wood fireplaces be installed in existing homes?

Yes. You don't need to build the traditional masonry to have a wood fireplace installed, though it does look very nice. These installations usually require a very minor modification to the existing structure of the house.

Do I need to build a vent or chimney to install a wood fireplace?

Yes. Wood smoke can become very dangerous in small enclosed spaces, so it is essential to create a vent or chimney to funnel the smoke out of the home and away from anyone who might end up breathing it.

Can I burn pellets or biofuel in my wood fireplace?

In order to do this, you should have a fireplace insert installed first. You may also need a special grate that will allow you to easily light and stack your wood pellets or biofuel to ensure these fuels burn evenly.
