Have you been watching the latest HGTV shows and are now looking to have your own “before-and-after” experience? One great way to do that is giving your fireplace a facelift. Here at Mid-Valley Chimney Repair & Sweeps, we love a good fireplace change up, which is why we’re Montgomery County’s go-to company for renovations, rebuilds, upgrades, and more.
How Are Fireplace Facelifts Done?
Giving your fireplace a facelift is a great way to update the look of your home and make it entirely unique to you and your style. Just as people like to change up their routines, there’s no reason to settle for a fireplace that just doesn’t fit the aesthetic you’re going for. You may hear this process referred to as: refacing, restoring, or resurfacing, but at Mid-Valley, we like to call it a fireplace facelift.
There are many ways to give your fireplace the new look you desire. From painting the masonry or mantle, to changing those out completely, we have a variety of materials – and a range of colors and designs – to truly help personalize your fireplace’s look. A few examples of materials you can choose from to transform your fireplace are cultured stone, brick, stone, cast concrete, tile, and metal.
Benefits of Fireplace Facelifts
Aside from achieving the HGTV home decor look of your dreams, choosing to give your fireplace a facelift has other benefits, as well. For starters, it’s cost effective. Fireplace facelifts are a much less costly alternative to replacing your entire fireplace (or removing it altogether). It’s also a relatively quick turnaround time to get done which means that you won’t have to deal with a drawn out remodel process. Don’t worry if your fireplace is “old” either, it can get a facelift too!
Throw in the versatility of the variety of materials, designs, and colors to choose from and you can see why a facelift for your fireplace is a great way to achieve the new, updated look you desire.
In case that hasn’t convinced you, some additional benefits are:
- Adds to your home value
- Easier to maintain
- Improves efficiency
- Affordable upgrade

What Materials Can Be Used for Fireplace Facelifts?
Great question! One of the benefits of doing a fireplace facelift is the versatility of the variety of materials you can choose from to achieve the look you’re going for. When it comes to these facelifts we like to categorize them into two categories – traditional and modern.
- If you are going for a more traditional look, then we suggest going with brick, stone, or cultured stone. All three of these will help you keep the traditional look of your fireplace, but will allow you to freshen it up, as well as choose between a variety of colors and styles to make it your own.
- If you’re going for a more modern look, we suggest considering tile, cast concrete, or metal. These are also versatile options that allow for a more sleek and contemporary/minimalist look.
What Does a Fireplace Facelift Cost?
The answer to this varies. It all depends on what materials you choose, the size of your fireplace, and the look you are going for. The best way to get an accurate idea of the cost is to have one of our certified technicians out to give you an estimate.
Also just a note: We know cost is always a factor into why homeowners choose to turn these projects into big DIY tasks. However, we caution you to leave this one to the professionals. We love a good DIY project, but when it comes to fireplace facelifts (or any chimney or fireplace services for that matter), it can be a dangerous job – one that is best left to the professionals, like the ones we have here at Mid-Valley Chimney Repair & Sweeps.
