Have you thought about adding a fireplace to your home? A fireplace adds warmth and beauty to any living area, so it’s no wonder that many homeowners desire a fireplace. In fact, a survey conducted by Angie’s List says that about 98 percent of real estate agents agreed a fireplace can raise a home’s value by at least $1,000 – $5,000. Adding a new fireplace to your home is a big decision. There are many factors to think about before construction including design, budget, fuel source, and timeframe.
One thing that you shouldn’t have to worry about is who you contract to construct your new fireplace. At TN Fireplace and Chimney, we specialize in fireplace construction. Our team of certified masons can guide you through the entire process of adding a fireplace to your home.
Prior to construction
There are a couple of things that you need to address prior to the construction of a fireplace. First, we’ll need to discuss what type of design you are looking for including materials you want to use and the placement within your home. Other important decisions include your desired heat output and the type of fuel that you want to use. One of the most important things you need to consider is your budget. Although this can sometimes be a tough thing to discuss with a contractor, we at TN Fireplace and Chimney are professionals who will make sure you get the most out of every penny you spend.
Prior to construction, we’ll also evaluate your home to make sure your home capable of supporting a new fireplace in the location you desire. We do this by making sure that your new fireplace is constructed safely and won’t shift once constructed. If a fireplace isn’t built with solid footing, it can lead to a lot of problems down the road.
Constructing a new fireplace is a big task, which requires a lot of work and materials. Once construction begins, we will make sure to do everything possible to stay out of your way and leave messes only within the construction site. We will also make sure that your project is done within the timeframe we discussed before construction began. Finally, we will keep a close eye on the materials and construction techniques we use, so that we do not go over your budget. If you have any questions during the construction process, we will be 100 percent open and transparent with you. Once your fireplace has been constructed, we will make sure to go over any operational questions that you might have.
