New Designer Fireplace in Historic Irvington District
The state of this chimney and fireplace was too severely damaged to repair. The chimney suffered from saturation decay and the masonry below grade was severely deteriorated from the gas emissions of the furnace. There was no liner, causing gas emissions to vent through the chimney which could potentially cause carbon monoxide poisoning. The chimney had to be completed removed and replaced. The chimney has now been rebuilt, reinforced with rebar and tied to the structure of the house at the joist using chimney straps.
Salvaging the existing fireplace tile surround would be tricky, the customers decided to have the fireplace tile re done at this time as well. They selected this gorgeous custom tile from Pratt & Larson.
