WHAT ARE THE TRENDS FOR 2019?
Wood to Gas Fireplace Swaps!!! From the late 80's, Minto, Richcraft et al., have designed their kitchens beside an open family room with those zero clearance wood fireplaces (now rotting). For approx $5900, we are removing the wood fireplaces and doing a 2019 gas fireplace update that you will use 250 days of the year. Now you have a new first floor, not just a kicked up kitchen. Will we be doing more Linear fireplaces? Yes.in 2018,we did a couple Valor L2 linears with the new "Heat Shift " technology. it's a $10,000 fireplace suited to new projects.
FINALLY, the Real Estate industry is catching onto the poor condition of all of those 80's and 90's zero clearance wood fireplaces. They are booking one of our wood to gas swaps for an updated, 2019 look. They have also eliminated a future "condition of sale", two day Reno.
DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER CONTACT INFORMATION?
Call ANYTIME. Sometimes though, we are 30' in the air dropping a fireplace liner down a chimney and need that other hand to hold onto a ladder. Not every call gets answered right away.
