We use the best available materials for fireplace repair work and accurately match the original mortar inside of the firebox. We do repointing that outlasts most other methods due to the preparation and choice of materials. The smoke chamber and throat sections are coated with factory grade high temperature cement.
We do removal of old chimneys and replace them with double wall stainless steel pipe or a full engineered masonry structure. Many older chimneys can also be relined as opposed to be being removed. We have constructed many brick and stone chimneys that match the original appearance almost exactly using antique mortars. We also do repointing of chimneys and structural repairs . These have included chimneys up to 150 years old.
We work with designers,architects and clients to create fireplace designs. Many projects have been designed by the clients and Peter Warren,owner of Heritage Brick and Stone. A variety of materials are used from around the world. We start with a direction of a historic or contemporary look, and then color range of material. Peter will then suggest possible sources of material and fabrication if needed. He has 28 years of experience designing and constructing historic and contemporary fireplaces. This experience has led to many unique sources of brick and stone material and methods including antique mortars for government historic boards.
