The Combined Appeal Of Modular Masonry Fireplaces
Here at Lords Chimney, we also offer modular masonry fireplaces, which are manufactured by FireRock. A modular masonry fireplace refers to a masonry fireplace kit that is manufactured in-factory and then put together on-site. FireRock is known as the “leading manufacturer of pre-engineered masonry fireplace and chimney systems,” and offers a variety of sizes and designs. Installation typically only takes a couple of days, which makes these fireplaces a less expensive, less labor intensive alternative to traditional masonry fireplaces. They are also designed to radiate heat better, and can burn either wood or gas, venting through a masonry or a metal chimney. Another benefit to these fireplaces is that they can be installed where traditional masonry fireplaces cannot, due to improper clearance from combustibles.

My husband and I purchased a 1910 Queen Anne Victorian home in the Heights which was more than just a small weekend project! One of the restoration tasks included completely gutting the old fireplace, chase, and chimney as they were not to code or functioning properly. Lords Chimney worked many hours on our "little" project removing the old brick (a very dirty job!) and retrofitting an entirely new system, even taking care to match the chimney brackets to the original brick color. The original brick was saved and placed in a nice pile for us in the back yard so that we could use it to lay a patio. We are so thrilled with our new fireplace and lovely gas logs. We look forward to hiring Lords Chimney to tackle a second fireplace upstairs. A big thank you to Lords for a terrific job!
