Traditional fireplaces are custom built by a mason at the time the home is constructed, but can also be added to an existing home. The concrete foundation, fire brick, clay flu-liner, and block construction of a custom fireplace are meant to last as long, or longer than the house. Brick, block and stone absorb the heat of a fire and create a thermal mass heat over a long period of time that can increase the overall feel of the home. This type of fireplace is more costly than an insert, but makes up for the extra cost in, durability, ambiance and comfort.
