Where do I start with fireplaces or stoves? The easiest place to start is to contact us to set up a consultation, since every home is different, every family is different, and there are many questions that we walk through with you to ensure that you get the look and utility that you’re looking for. Call us today at 651-653-0190 and we’ll set up a no-obligation appointment.
Gas or wood? There’s no mistaking the look, smell, and radiance from a wood-burning fireplace or stove, but recent advancements in gas fireplaces and gas stoves have made the gas option more attractive. Today’s gas fireplace versions virtually eliminated the telltale blue flame and faux fireplace “logs.” Modern gas versions burn far more realistically, with glowing orange-red embers, and tall orange-yellow flames that flicker and dance around ceramic-fiber logs that are molded so close to the real thing that it’s tough to tell the difference.
In addition to getting far closer to the look of real flame than ever before, gas fireplaces and gas stoves have a few advantages over classic wood:
Energy efficiency: gas tends to provide a greater percentage of the fuel consumption back as heat as opposed to wood fires.
Convenience - turn on and enjoy. With the flick of a switch, you can start enjoying your fire’s look and heat, adjust to preference, and then turn off again with just a button.
No tending, minimal cleanup, no logs to carry in, and no smoke or ash.
Gas fireplaces and stoves can be placed anywhere in the home without need of a chimney. Want a fireplace by your bathtub? We can build that.
If it’s been awhile since you’ve looked at gas fireplaces, we encourage you to let us show you the many advancements in look and efficiency that gas can bring.
That said, there’s no mistaking the classic look and feel of a majestic wood-burning fireplace, housed with natural wooded logs. The smell of a nice oak or cedar log burning gently in a wood fireplace or wood burning stove of your own, with the mesmerizing flames dancing within, can inspire many a conversation and bring warm family memories for years to come.
There’s also a case to be made for an electric fireplace. It’s energy efficient, convenient, and odorless, and while it doesn’t generate nearly the heat of a gas or wood fireplace, electric fireplaces can be an attractive addition to any room in the home.
What other options should I consider? Whether you choose wood, gas, or electric as your fuel, Carter Custom Construction can build it to your specifications. Let us help you explore the many options: where in the home you’d like it placed, is it in an existing fireplace or stove placement, what’s your ideal usage, what’s your ideal effort level, and then, the favorite question, what do you want it to look like?
Have a look at some of the photos in our Idea Gallery to gather some thoughts on the type of look that you want and other fireplace ideas. We can build a classic brick hearth, mantel, and surround, or perhaps combine a stone look with a precision crafted wood mantel. The options are endless, so we encourage you to contact us for a no-obligation consultation.
We’re experts in crafting amazing looking fireplaces, stoves, mantels, surrounds, and custom cabinetry that will be the envy of your friends and neighbors. Choose from many looks that suit your home, from a classic fireplace mantel and surround, to a variety of finishes including:
And many other options to achieve the look and feel that fits best in your unique home.
What else can you do to enhance the look and warmth of my home? As mentioned, we can build custom fireplaces and stoves to your preferences, or simply install a wood or gas insert (gas or wood enclosure that is “inserted” into an existing fireplace). Perhaps a corner fireplace is an option as well, since it doesn’t dominate a wall area.
We also can build an outdoor fireplace on your property to increase enjoyment outside while entertaining, or simply relaxing outdoors with a significant upgrade to the standard firepit.
If you have a wood or gas fireplace, and want to switch to the other fuel type, we also perform conversions from wood to gas, and vice-versa.
As well, we can service, maintain, and repair virtually all types of fireplaces and stoves.
Want to work on your workshop projects in the garage, but it’s too chilly? We can install garage heaters to keep your garage warm so you can finish that big project without worrying about the weather.
Whatever your need is to keep your family safely enjoying the warmth of a fireplace, stove, or heater, you can count on Carter Custom Construction to make the most of your enjoyment and pride in your home, each and every season.
