A Georgia fireplace is an architectural element
consisting of a space designed to contain a fire, generally for heating but
sometimes also for cooking. The space where the fire is contained is called a
firebox, a chimney or other flue allows gas and particulate exhaust to escape
A fireplace may consist of some or all of the following
elements: foundation, hearth, firebox, facing, ash dump door, chimney crane,
cleanout door, grate or iron bars, lintel, lintel bar, over mantle, breast,
damper, smoke chamber, throat, flue, chimney chase, crown, cap or shroud, and

Keep in mind that the stone used in a Georgia stone
veneer fireplace needs to be durable and not susceptible to heat damage.
Limestone, granite and dense metamorphic rocks can stand up to heat with no
issues. Avoid soft rocks, slate or any other rock that crumbles fairly easily.
The inside of the firebox should absolutely be built with hard firebrick set in
fireclay, not mortar. Mortar used in between firebrick almost always crumbles
when subjected to the repeated heat of fires. Fireclay is the preferred material
as the joints between the brick are small, and the fireclay tends to vitrify
with each fire.
Masonry (brick or stone
fireplaces and chimneys) with or without tile lined flue. Tiles are used to line
the flue to keep the corrosive combustion products from eating away the chimney
Reinforced Concrete Chimneys: Popular during the 1970s to 1980s.
Fundamental flaws (the difference in thermal expansion rates between steel rebar
and concrete which caused the chimney flues to crack when heated) bankrupted the
US manufacturers and obsolete the technique. This type of chimney often shows
vertical cracks on the exterior of the chimney which worsen as the internal
Manufactured or 'Prefab' fireplace with sheet metal fire box and double
or triple walled metal pipe running up inside a wood framed chase with a chase
cover and cap/spark arrestor at the top to keep birds out and sparks in. Within
about one hundred meters from salt water this type of chimney is subject to
rusting. Otherwise it's competitive to the masonry chimney.
We build many styles of Atlanta fireplaces. We can
take a True Rumford Fireplace from start to finish brick by brick or we can
install gas fireplaces, fireplace inserts, masonry heaters or just create
decorative noncombustible walls and hearths for any wood stove.
