FW’S WOOD TO GAS FIREPLACE SWAP

IT’S HAPPENING!  Finally, Insurance inspectors are taking note of the thousands of 30 year old PLUS wood zero clearance fireplaces.  These units are all in bad shape and our experience has been chimneys rusting from the inside out.  Small pin holes in the venting hide much bigger rust damage with great fire and Carbon Monoxide potential.

Our remedy is our Swap, removing the wood fireplace box and installing a new gas fireplace (Napoleon GX36 direct vent), and retiling for a new look and feel.

We supply great gas fireplace brands, Napoleon, Regency and Vermont Castings.  What we do not mention often enough is we finish what we install.

Here is the best renovation bargain that we offer, our SWAP.  It is to swap out a dead OR RETAGGED wood fireplace for a new gas one.  We remove an 80/90’s fireplace and reinstall a new gas fireplace using existing mantel and new tilework.

This is a job that was finished in two days, ready for Christmas.    Merry Christmas.  The client had a very smart family room with a 90’s, dead,  wood fireplace (condemned chimney).  They noted our Homestars following.

We removed the mantel, the fireplace, tile surround and installed the Napoleon gas fireplace.  Next day, we repaired the wall,  reinstalled the mantel, glued and grouted a new tile surround and cleaned up.  This FP will be used at least 250 times this year.  The client was in disbelief (debated for four years) and was very, very happy.  This is a common project for us that we do well.

Did I mention that we finish what we install.
