A restored fireplace is safer for multiple reasons. It keeps toxic gasses from seeping into the home. It keeps air pollution from burning wood out of the interior areas of your home. Adding glass doors keeps young children and pets from the dangers of hot coals and embers.
Adds to Energy Efficiency
A restored fireplace keeps cool and warm air where it should be, reducing heating and cooling costs. If you have a traditional open fireplace, installing a modern firebox can significantly improve your fireplace’s safety and efficiency.
Increases Home Values
A fireplace can be the center of a room and the highlight of a home. Many homebuyers look for fireplaces when deciding on a home to purchase. Adding a new or restored fireplace can enhance the home’s resale value.
