Refacing brick fireplaces with CULTURED STONE

BEFORE and AFTER

Many fireplaces in homes that were built in the past decades are brick. Getting rid of your dated brick fireplace (and I don’t mean painting it!)  is not a difficult upgrade – regardless of whether your fireplace is wood-burning, gas, or electric….refresh your room and add comfort and value to your home with CULTURED STONE.

For this project, the main priorities of the homeowner was to cover up a large brick wall in a main floor family room – that is open to the kitchen – with a similar stone that they loved in their previous home in Quebec.

I met with the homeowner and explained how we could achieve her vision. I accompanied her on visits to a number of stone manufacturers, where she could see first-hand – on full size display panels – over 30+ cultured stone styles and colours available.

There was no ‘tear down’ involved – the old brick fireplace is still behind the stone – which keeps the price much lower!
