How do I prepare for a Fireplace project?

The first step of a fireplace installation project is to check in with your city permit office. Some cities do not allow homeowners to build certain types of fireplaces. You can choose your dream fireplace once you get the facts straight. Choose between a traditional wood burning, electric, or natural gas fireplace. Finally, ask your local permit office about natural gas lines. You may need a permit for a natural gas fireplace.

Consider calling a carpenter, mason, or general contractor for installation helps. They will be able to build around your fireplace to make it fit with your home design. Your options include a free-standing, built in/recessed, or extended aesthetic.

Fireplace installation costs

Fireplace units range in price. Homeowners should base their decision on aesthetics and the price of energy in their city. Prices may are estimated as follows:

  • Electric: pay anywhere from $200 - $800 for the fireplace. Installation costs are low, since one can simply plug the fireplace into the nearest electrical outlet.
  • Gas: starting at $400 - $4,000+ for a more attractive model. Gas fireplace installation fees can cost over $1,000.
  • Wood burning: can cost $10,000+ to install in a new build, or a retrofit project. The home foundation must be able to support the weight of the fireplace. A woodstove or enclosed log burner may be more affordable.

Don't forget the added costs of stonework or tiling around the mantle. This will surely add to the project price!

Can I DIY my fireplace project?

A homeowner could install an electric fireplace themselves. However, we recommend hiring a professional to install any gas or wood-burning fireplaces.
