An interior stone fireplace is often the centerpiece and focal point of a home, where friends and family gather to relax and converse. It epitomizes comfort and luxury, warmth and charm, and is there for everyone’s enjoyment. However, for many homes a natural stone fireplace is not a practical option. In addition to the high cost of natural stones, their weight factors heavily on the foundation; requiring serious reinforcement of the flooring. Add the extra weight of the hearth, surround, and mantel piece and you can conclude that the danger of a collapsed application is a very real one. Fortunately, there is another alternative.
Manufactured stone from Canyon Stone Canada provides all the advantages natural stone panels do but without any of the drawbacks. So, when considering a face lift or integrating your outdated brick fireplace with the rest of your living space, give it a new, fresh, and stunning look with an endless selection of stone veneer products by Canyon Stone Canada. Here is why:
Interior stone veneers duplicate the appearance of natural stone panels. Quality manufactured stone, often referred to as faux stone, artificial, or fake stone emulates the look and feel of natural stone so well that it even deceives experienced masons into thinking that it is the real thing! This remarkable achievement comes from using a formulation of Portland cement, natural aggregates, and carefully selected pigments within meticulously detailed molds, modeled after natural stones. The result is a stone fireplace virtually indistinguishable from the original.
Manufactured stone can be installed on virtually any wall surface since its light weight eliminates the need for special footing and foundations and with mortar can be directly applied onto concrete boards, bricks, as well as drywall.
Artificial stone is safe for fireplaces. Obviously, when constructing a wood or gas-burning stone fireplace or another interior stone project, flammability of the building material is a concern. By its very nature, fake stone is non-combustible, contributes zero fuel, and produces no smoke.
Essentially, manufactured stone is the ideal cladding material for your new or old brick fireplace. How these vary is truly unique. For example, you can create a truly stylish and attractive patio fire pit simply by selecting a stone veneer as a cladding material with a fine colour and texture scheme, preferable one which is stackable. From exterior to interior stone veneer fireplaces, the possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination.
You will have no qualms about installing artificial stone either. A little planning and attention to detail allows any weekend handyman to successfully install our product by following the vendor’s simple instructions and observing basic precautions. Be sure to check your existing brick fireplace for cracks or damages that need to be repaired along with removing any painted areas that will not adhere to our stone veneers. Good preparation is a must and involves matching the stones, similar to a jigsaw puzzle, in a scheme you see as fitting. Regardless of the size of the fireplace you will work on, be sure to factor in any changes that you are planning to your living space. Are you planning on painting or getting new furniture? Tying the look of the fireplace into the style of your home makes it an elegant accent rather than an ugly oddity. Remember, planning makes perfect.
Once you’ve decided on a cladding material such as artificial stone veneer or natural stone panels for your fireplace; the next question is where to obtain it? Choose a vendor that offers sound warranty, a wide selection of fake stone, and has a reputation for quality as solid as the stone itself. Available in dozens of different styles, textures, and colors, artificial stone veneers can emulate any natural stone panels. This gives you broad flexibility in designing an interior stone fireplace that perfectly complements your home and lifestyle, whether traditional or contemporary.
