Fireplace Inserts

Efficiency is not the strong attribute of an older, traditional wood-burning fireplace. It is often obvious it is not very efficient and cannot warm the living space, of your McKinney home, properly. If this is the case, an existing inefficient fireplace can be transformed into a very efficient heating source by merely installing a fireplace insert.

A fireplace insert is a unit installed into a pre-existing wood or stone fireplace and serves as the primary heating element. An insert usually includes the interior walls of the fireplace, a grate, and life-like logs that are made of materials such as resin. Fireplace inserts are available in wood or gas fuel, which makes them a great, economical option for a fireplace upgrade.

When installing a fireplace insert, we recommend installing the proper venting, chimney liner, and termination cap to match the unit ensuring safe & efficient operation.

Custom Surrounds and Wall Treatments

Take your fireplace to the next level by adding a breath-taking element to your fireplace with a custom surround or wall treatment. Your current fireplace or fireplace insert may be just what you need, but you want to improve the look of your hearth. If this is the case, a new surround designed with cultured stone, brick, or veneer would be the perfect option. A simple change can easily return your fireplace to its position as the focal point of visual interest for your entire living space. The surrounding treatment has a lot to do with the impressiveness of the appearance of the fireplace.

Mantles

Simple yet majestic, a fireplace mantle is an addition to any fireplace which can immediately change the style and appearance of your hearth without straining your budget. Traditional or contemporary, Sweeps n Ladder’s fireplace remodel experts can assist in the selection and installation of a beautifully magnificent fireplace mantle.

Combining a mantle and surround package will dramatically change your fireplace into an amazing masterpiece at the center of your home.

Additional Fireplace Improvements

There are other improvements available to improve your fireplace including:

  • Resurfacing or Painting the Firebox with a Heat Resistant Coating
  • Replacing the Fireplace Facing
  • Installing Glass Doors or a Decorative Screen
  • Creating a Raised Hearth Area
  • Modernizing a Rustic Fireplace by Including Decorative Glass Instead of Traditional Logs.

If you have found traditional wood-burning fireplaces a hassle and generally inefficient, our heating experts can install a new gas log set that will not only add to the beauty of your hearth while increasing efficiency. Homeowners in McKinney are often surprised at how inexpensive it is to add gas logs into an existing fireplace. Additionally, gas logs utilize natural gas or propane fuel, both of which burn much cleaner than firewood, making cleanup easier and an eco-friendly heat source perfect for homes here in the south.
