Fireplaces are known for adding value to a home by giving it more character and charm. But if your home’s fireplace is old or damaged it could not only be decreasing the value of your home but also costing you more money in utility bills. If you have already requested a fireplace installation in Davis County, here are a few things you should consider when you map out your renovation project.

Stage 1: Evaluating

The first step to any successful fireplace renovation project is to thoroughly evaluate the condition of your existing fireplace. The evaluation process is important for many reasons as it allows you to determine if a renovation is actually necessary and it pinpoints features you do and don’t want in your new unit. During this stage, you should also consider what the overall goal for your renovation project is. Do want to create a new ambiance in your home? Is your fireplace’s efficiency your main concern? These are important questions because they will help you stay objective throughout the renovation process.

Stage 2: Sourcing

While there are many fireplace installation companies out there, all of them do not offer the same level of craftsmanship, reliability, and customer service. When selecting a company for fireplace renovation make sure you research their pricing, service offerings, and customer views. When in doubt — give Croft Fireplace a call.

Stage 3: Planning & Designing

Stage 3 of a fireplace renovation project is where all of the fun begins. During this stage, you can feel free to let your creativity run wild as you pick out your materials, mantel, and most importantly your fireplace. To help keep you from going too crazy with your fireplace design, you should evaluate the current style of your home. This will help you ensure that your design fits into your home’s decor seamlessly without taking away from other elements in the room.  

Stage 4: Executing

This is one of the easiest stages of a renovation project because you can sit back and watch while your fireplace installation company does all of the hard work. While you don’t have to do any heavy lifting, you should be very hands-on during this stage so that you identify and address any concerns you have before the project is over.  

Stage 5: Kick Back & Enjoy!

Once you’ve completed stages 1-4, it’s time to enjoy all of your hard work. Whether you choose to host a fun game night with friends or just want to relax by the fire, upgrading your home’s fireplace is the best way to set the mood.
