Your fireplace was designed and constructed to withstand harsh conditions. However, even the most well-designed fireplace will start to deteriorate after decades of fires burning inside of it. You love the look of your historic fireplace, but when its masonry starts to crumble and look worn out, you may think that it’s time to get a new one. What if we told you that you could keep the style and beauty of your historic fireplace all while maintaining the functionality of a new one? At TN Fireplace & Chimney our masons have countless hours of experience working on historic fireplaces and can have your historic fireplace looking like the day it was constructed.
Fireplace Restoration Services We Offer
Masonry Matching – Throughout the years, masons have used different styles of stone and bricks to construct fireplaces. This often makes masonry repairs difficult because the coloring of materials commonly used now may not exactly match those used when your fireplace was constructed. However, our masons know how to locate and procure materials that will match the original materials of your fireplace perfectly, leaving your fireplace looking as if it still had all of its original brickwork and mortar.
Stain Removal – After being used over and over again, your fireplace masonry accumulates soot and smoke, causing stains. These stains can be unsightly and tough to get rid of. Also, you want to be careful using conventional smoke stain removal products on historic fireplace masonry because they might harm older masonry. At TN Fireplace & Home, we have experience removing all kinds of fireplace stains and will use products that are proven to remove stains while protecting your fireplace.
Firebox Repair & Restoration – Your firebox has to be able to handle high temperatures for long periods of time. It’s no wonder then that, after decades of use, your firebox may start to crack, deteriorate and not function properly. At TN Fireplace & Home our masons can rebuild your firebox and have it performing like the day it was built.
Historic fireplaces and chimneys aren’t necessarily built to standard dimensions like many of the fireplaces and chimneys are today. Because of this, it is important to have someone working on your restoration that has experience working with materials and techniques that were historically used in the fireplace construction in Eastern Tennessee area. It is also important to have a mason working on your fireplace that has been trained to complete the job in the safest manner possible. That is why we at TN Chimney & Home require that all out masons and chimney technicians are safety certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). Only a CSIA trained mason has the knowledge and training to safely restore your historic fireplace.
If you’re ready to give your old fireplace a facelift, call Knoxville’s only CSIA certified chimney technician today at (865) 922-2262 or set up an appointment online today. We look forward to restoring your fireplace to it original beauty for future generations to enjoy.
