Ottawa Masonry Fireplaces
Masonry fireplaces (masonry heater, masonry stove or wood burning fireplace) being used to warm the interior space through radiant heating, is a cost effective heating solution for your home. Archaeologically existed during the past 5,000 years, humans have used massive blocks of masonry to retain heating. The masonry design ideas have been enhanced during the recent years, however the core of the design is very ancient.
Although, the idea is ancient, but your masonry fireplace design doesn't have to be ancient as well. A fireplace refacing can easily enhance the look of your existing fireplace bricks or stones without replacing them. Your masonry wood burning fireplace or gas fireplace is not only a source of heat for your home, but also a gathering place for your family and most certainly could be a wow factor to show off, specially if you are selling your home.
There are many materials that could be used over the existing brick fireplace, but just to name a few materials that have gained popularity in the most recent years are: cultured stones, veneers, slates, granite, marble, natural stones, thin stone veneers, tiles and real stones.
