The Steps to Follow for a Fireplace Installation


After returning from a party at a friend’s house, you can’t stop thinking about their fireplace! Yes, the food spread they put together was amazing, but you were also impressed by how well the fireplace brought the room together. What’s more, you realized that the heater wasn’t running all that much because the fireplace kept the room perfectly comfortable.

Whether your visit got you thinking about a fireplace installation in Minneapolis, MN for the first time or you’ve been dreaming about it for years, it’s time to make your fireplace dreams a reality. The experts at 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. are here to help you every step of the way!

3 Steps for Any Fireplace Installation

You’ve decided that you want a fireplace installed in your house. However, it isn’t as easy as waving a magic wand and having the new, beautiful, expertly installed fireplace appear. While calling us will get the process started easily, there are steps to be aware of beforehand so you know what all is entailed.

1. Figure Out the Type of Fireplace You Want

We aren’t just talking about the visual style of your fireplace here although you’ll need to consider that factor too. The biggest question you’ll need to answer when getting a fireplace installed in your house is whether you’re getting a wood-burning or gas-powered fireplace. This can be an easy choice based on whether you already have a gas line connection or whether it’s in your budget to install a gas line in addition to your new fireplace.

2. Determine Where It Should Be

You don’t want to have a technician show up to install your fireplace and tell them they can just “put it anywhere.” This isn’t like a portable heater; a fireplace is installed by making a hole in your wall and installing the fireplace and chimney.

This can be as easy as letting your installer know which room you want the fireplace to be in and determining which part of the room is viable for the installation. Even easier, you may be able to install a gas fireplace insert into the space where your wood-burning fireplace is.

If you have trouble choosing, you can talk to our professionals about the best place to install your fireplace. We’ll make sure that we take your wants and needs and your budget into consideration along with what’s possible for your home.

3. Choose a Time for Your Installation and Keep Your Calendar Clear!

You know what type of fireplace you want to get installed and where you want it. Depending on if you have a fireplace already that you are switching around or you’re installing a fireplace from scratch, you can trust our team to get your installation taken care of. Just be aware that this installation may take a day or it may take several days.

Why not make this holiday season the time that you finally get the fireplace you’ve been dreaming of? Contact 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. to schedule your fireplace installation.
