ZC Change

Posted: Updated:
Many families have fireplaces that are inefficient and/or unattractive. They do not realize
that they have options; most feel there is no way these old zero clearance fireplaces, be
they wood or gas burning, can be removed and replaced with an efficient and attractive new
fireplace. Depending upon the situation, we may be able to remove the old unit without any
demolition of surrounding brick, tile or sheetrock. This happens in a high percentage of
jobs. Otherwise, we may remove sheetrock behind the fireplace oftentimes in the garage. Or,
sometimes we may remove the exterior siding materials, remove and replace the unit, and redo
the siding.
Our technique allows us to change out these units with great results. Our aim is to finish
the units such that no one could tell it was not an original. It works wonderfully!
