The materials you select to place around your fireplace can help to make your fireplace pop or stand out. One of the options that you can use for a fireplace surround is natural stone, such as granite.
One of the benefits associated with using granite around your fireplace is that granite can withstand high temperatures, such as those that both gas and wood-burning fireplaces give off. Traditionally, if you are using tile or stone around your fireplace, you must first install cement board before installing the tile or stone. The cement board absorbs the heat, protecting your stone. This is not something you need to do with granite, which cuts out a step. Ultimately, this helps to save time and money.
No two stone fireplaces are the same, and at TOP LINE GRANITE we know that the more personalized your custom fireplace is, the more likely you are to enjoy it.
