Masonry vs Prefabricated Fireplaces
At Tennessee Fireplace & Chimney, we can either construct a masonry fireplace for your home or we can install a prefabricated fireplace. These two options are both wonderful options to consider, but it will depend on your need. Our professionals have all the knowledge and the expertise to help you pick the fireplace that best suits your style and need.
A masonry fireplace is constructed brick by brick inside or your home. Because of their size and weight, location options around your home may be limited. They generally use wood or gas as fuel, but they don’t usually have the heating output of a prefabricated fireplace. They can take a few days to construct and are generally more costly than a prefabricated fireplace.
However, some people really love the authentic look and feel of a brick or stone fireplace, and they think it is worth the price. At Tennessee Fireplace & Chimney, our masons have years of fireplace construction experience and are considered experts. If you are considering a masonry fireplace, we’ll come over and discuss your budget, time frame and design preferences. We will also assess and inspect the location you would like to place it.
A prefabricated fireplace is constructed in a factory. It consists of a firebox and ventilation system, which you can design your fireplace and mantle around. This means the location and design options are unlimited. Prefabricated fireplaces are a very quick and easy to install, and they are usually less expensive than a masonry fireplace.
Prefabricated fireplaces can burn on wood or gas as. The prefabricated fireplaces we recommend are EPA certified, meaning they meet the high-efficiency standards. They are designed to burn slower and hotter pushing heat out into your home, instead up a chimney. This makes them more efficient than a masonry fireplace.
