Masonry sandstone is ideal for fresh building projects that demand to blend with or blend into an existing heritage setting. Masonry sandstone can also be applied for creating unique and distinct features around the home – such as fireplaces, kitchen benches, bathrooms, and entry halls. Additionally, masonry complements other building materials such as timber, roof tiles, and amazing paint colours–acting as an exciting backdrop or as an elegant feature. A masonry fireplace presents a primary function that is adding warmth, elegance, and the pleasure of watching a fire at home. A home’s value is increased if it comes with a masonry fireplace. This kind of fireplace is a permanent element of the structure and is built as the house is constructed. If you already have a masonry fireplace, one excellent solution to increase the performance of an existing masonry fireplace is to have another fireplace inserted right in the existing firebox. This way, you can still make use of the existing fireplace structure and chimney while enjoying a real heat-producing appliance. Materials such as brick, rock, concrete, marble, granite, and tile are usually involved in masonry fireplace’s hearth and facade.  In its nature, masonry fireplace requires a heavy-duty concrete base to bear and distribute the significant weight of the fireplace and chimney.

Masonry fireplaces and chimneys are mostly part of a house’s original plan, built on-site by masons. Hence, they are almost always built where a home is under new construction, either it is a new home or significant addition.

 Generally, masonry fireplaces can be often found in older homes. Masonry fireplaces have a long history and for as long as they have been around, imitators have been trying to imitate the beauty and authenticity that only a real masonry fireplace and actual wood-burning fire can create. There is no replacement for the beauty and atmosphere created by an open fire which is why masonry fireplaces offer a fireside experience like no other.  They have been used by homeowners for centuries to bring loved ones together. Additionally, they can be favorite gathering places in lodges to create a warm escape from the cold. Typically, at a glance, you can tell whether a fireplace is masonry or not. The interior of the fireplace is made either of brick or stone. A beautiful fireplace built by skilled masons can be costly, but having a custom-designed as well as custom-fitted masonry fireplace to your home is a worthy investment that will endure for years before requiring maintenance and, ultimately will truly add value to your home. If you have a masonry fireplace, you can maintain the aesthetics and increase your efficiency by adding a fireplace inserted. You can not pull this off with factory-built units, unless the manufacturer specifically designed an insert to be compatible with a prefab model. The architectural beauty and integrity elemet of a masonry fireplace demands attention and it will be the focal point of the home for a lifetime.
