What to do if you have found a fireplace and would like to restore it.
Found a fireplace in your house - what to do?
Fireplaces naturally draw the eye in a room. As well as being a
focal point they are also a source of heat. You will find that people
love to sit near a fireplace, basking in the heat that it gives out. Simply
watching the flames is very pleasurable.
If your fireplace has been covered up, don't worry. There
are many places where you can get hold of genuine period fireplaces and
mantels, reproduction fireplaces and mantels or new ones at reasonable
prices. A competent builder can easily install the fireplace for you.
Make sure that the builder inspects the fireplace and makes good the chimney as well.
