If you are planning a renovation,
remodeling or refacing of your old interior stone brick Georgia fireplace or
construction of a new one, you've come to the right place.
GA Brick fireplaces
come in all shapes and sizes. So even if you don't want a "traditional" looking
fireplace, you may find that the look and feel of brick is right for you. One of
the great things about brick is that it can get old and beat up looking without
losing its charm. Many Georgia fireplace owners feel that the aged look is part of that
charm rather than something that detracts from it.
If you've ever seen a brand new brick fireplace, you may
understand what they're talking about. The brick is all shiny and new. It
gleams. It looks nice in a way, but it doesn't look "natural." You feel as
though you want to take it through a season of fires to break it in. Then it
will look the way a brick fireplace ought to look. Then it will have that patina
that adds warmth to the home even when there isn't a fire going.
Keep in mind that the stone used in a Atlanta 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.
