Why remove an existing fire hearth?

The fireplace definitely gives your home a more stylish, warm, and comfortable feel. However, you may want to remove it because you are not satisfied with its position or utility in the home.  The fireplace takes up a lot of space, especially if your home is small. If you are installing underfloor heating or using other heating sources, you can remove the fireplace as you will not need it for indoor heating purposes.

You may want to remove your fireplace to:

  • Add space to your living area;
  • Avoid fireplace hazards;
  • Remove a defective heat source;
  • Avoid debris, dust, and dirt build-up;
  • Prevent home fires, creosote build-up, and carbon monoxide issues.

You can also improve your fireplace or replace it with a durable, modern fireplace made of marble, sandstone, granite, cast iron, or other high-quality materials. The new models are more functional, safer, and easier to maintain. An old fireplace can be harmful to your health and must be cleaned regularly to ensure that it is free of dirt and dust. At Brighton Floor Sanding, we work around the clock in order to offer professional services to our customers. We will safely dismantle your fireplace and give your floor the new look you desire.

The Fire Hearth Removal Process

Demolish the Fireplace Hearth

The first step is for our experts to demolish and remove the fire hearth. When finished, our experts pick up the boards around the fireplace. Excess concrete is removed, and the gaps on the floor are filled with new joists.

Find Reclaimed Floorboards

Then, our Brighton team sets out on a treasure hunt. This part is a bit exciting for them. They will visit reclamation yards and try to salvage reclaimed boards that will look good in your home. Our team will use these new boards to fill the void left by the fireplace. Our floor renovation experts will adjust the boards to fit the existing floor perfectly.

Why hire a fire hearth removal and flooring expert?

Removing an old concrete fireplace will change the appearance of a room and provide more floor space. However, removing a hearth can be quite messy and difficult, if not dangerous. Some people prefer to do it themselves while others use the services of a professional for a more perfect finish. People who decide to do it themselves may end up making mistakes when removing the fireplace, such as overlooking gaps and cracks. Additionally, if the DIYer creates many cracks and crevices, the fireplace may collapse. Wearing protective equipment is also important; dust and dirt particles can get into your eyes and nose.

At Brighton Floor Sanding, our task is to remove the fireplace hearth while paying proper attention to all the details.

We will deal with the chaotic process associated with fire hearth removal, leaving the room clean and tidy at the end. Instead, you can spend your valuable time doing other important tasks around the house or office.
