Masonry matching for historic fireplace restoration
If you’re looking for a fireplace restoration company that can match the masonry of your historic fireplace, then give Elite Chimney Solutions a call today.

Masonry restoration is one of the most intricate and detailed jobs when it comes to home improvement. The process includes removing old mortar, cleaning the joints, and applying new mortar to make sure everything is properly sealed.

When you are trying to restore a historic fireplace, it is important to get the stain removal right. If you don’t get it right, it can be tricky to remove the stains later on. If you are looking for a team of professionals who can help you with your restoration, Elite Chimney Solutions is here for you. Stains are a common problem in historic homes, particularly stone fireplaces. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to use harsh chemicals or even sandpaper to clean the fireplace. While these methods may work for a short time, they can damage the surface of the stone and leave it looking worse than before. When you attempt to remove stains yourself it is easy to damage the finish. Our team uses specialized products and processes that allow us to remove stains from your historic fireplace without compromising the integrity of the finish.
Firebox Repair & Restoration
Elite Chimney Solutions offers a wide range of services and products for your historic fireplace restoration needs. When you're trying to determine whether or not it's time to repair your fireplace, here are some of the warning signs you should look for:
- Your fireplace is producing less heat than usual.
- If the flue is heavily sooted from age and lack of attention (it's a good indication the chimney isn't drawing well)
- When cracks or splits appear on the inside of your firebox.
Restoring a historic fireplace isn’t your run-of-the-mill fireplace restoration job. Historic fireplaces require special attention to detail and masonry from a reputable chimney sweep and chimney repair expert for a variety of reasons:
- Historic fireplaces and chimneys are built to different dimensions than modern ones.
- They require the skillsets of certified chimney technicians
- They require the skillsets of masons that know the style, materials, and techniques used in the RI area.
