Does your ideal fireplace project cost more than you can easily pull out of your bank account? You still have options. With the right financing solution, you can pay what you can afford now and spread the rest of the cost across future monthly payments.
At Four Day Fireplace, we partner with Hearth Financing to help customers find affordable monthly payment options for their projects. With this program, you have multiple fireplace financing choices based on your financial situation and preferences.
How Much Do Fireplace Projects Cost?
Fireplace remodel costs can vary quite a bit, depending on the scope of the work. If you’re simply refacing your existing fireplace, it may be a relatively inexpensive project. On the other hand, building a new fireplace from scratch with a chimney or new gas line will cost quite a bit.
The cost of your project also depends on factors like local labor costs, material shortages, and inflation. Here are a few estimates for fireplace project costs in the Pacific Northwest:
Building a New Fireplace
Building a new fireplace, or rebuilding from scratch, can be a very costly project. If you plan to build a new wood or gas fireplace, you can expect to pay at least $9,000-$11,000. The cost may be higher if you hire a separate interior designer or need to remove an old prefab fireplace first.
Electric fireplaces are usually much cheaper. You may be able to install a new electric fireplace for $2,000-$3,000.
Keep in mind that the cost of your fireplace can go up quite a bit if you want a bespoke design and rare or high-end materials. If you want a custom-designed fireplace that doesn’t look like anyone else’s, your project cost may be substantially more than the ranges we provided above.
Changing Fuel Sources
Many homeowners these days are looking to convert their wood-burning fireplace to a gas fireplace. Gas fireplaces are cleaner, safer, and easier to maintain than wood. However, the conversion can be a fairly expensive process depending on your home’s existing fireplace and gas lines.
It typically costs $5,500-$6,500 to run gas lines, set up venting, and install a gas insert unit. However, your final cost may be lower or higher.
Replacing the Mantel
A new fireplace mantel can completely change the appearance of your fireplace and living space. A mantel can be an incredibly ornate work of art, a simple shelf-like beam of wood, or anything in between.
Typically, this kind of project costs $800-$1,500 before installation. Again, your actual cost may be significantly higher if you hire a separate interior designer to help.
Painting a Fireplace
Painting is usually one of the cheapest home improvement and interior design projects you can do. White painted fireplaces have become particularly popular, although homeowners need to be careful that they are choosing heat-resistant paint that won’t peel or blister.
According to Home Advisor data, the average cost for painting a small fireplace is $656. However, your cost may be much higher or lower depending on whether you hire a professional painter or go the DIY route.
If you paint the fireplace yourself, you may only have to pay for a gallon or two of heat-resistant paint. You will also need painting supplies if you don’t already have them.
Refacing a fireplace with stone typically starts at about $3,500. The final cost may be higher depending on the type of stone you choose.
Refacing with drywall is usually much less expensive. According to Home Advisor data, the average cost to hang or install drywall is about $1,690.
