Wood-Burning Fireplace Replacements

Although many homeowners today choose to replace their old wood-burning fireplaces with gas log inserts or even electrical models, others still want the beauty of a traditional fireplace. Upgrading to a new wood-burning fireplace lets you take advantage of advanced technology that makes these fireplaces safer, more energy efficient, cleaner, and more attractive than ever before.

You can depend on our team of professionals to enhance your old fireplace and your home, making you more glad than ever that you stayed with a wood-burning option.

GranView Masonry Fireplace

When you get a new fireplace, you’ll want an upgrade, and the GranView Masonry Fireplace is one of your best options thanks to its unique combustion air supply system. This system prevents heated air inside your house from getting quickly lost up the chimney while you’ve got a roaring fire going, and it also prevents "fireplace odor" and drafts when you’re not using your fireplace.

The way it works is that the GranView’s combustion system connects combustion air from your house into the fireplace, rather than pulling it from your house. The special masonry helps with energy efficiency, storing heat after the fire has gone out and continually delivering warmth to your home. On top of everything else, these fireplaces look fantastic, with multiple options for design and decor that make them flexible and beautiful additions to any house.

GranView Zero Clearance Fireplace

This type of fireplace has the same beneficial combustion system as the GranView Masonry, with the added advantage of an easy, cost-effective installation. The Granview Zero Clearance Fireplace makes it unnecessary to have a special foundation for the installation. These fireplaces also have a 95.4% combustion efficient design that burns smoke that would otherwise go to waste. That means you’ll have a cleaner burning fireplace as well, with lower hydrocarbon emissions and less creosote buildup in the chimney.
