Fireplaces (a.k.a. zero clearance fireplaces) are typically installed during the construction of a new home or as part of a remodel project. As opposed to an insert, the housing (or firebox) of a fireplace is composed of an inner and outer metal shell. The term “zero clearance” refers to the fact that the framing (studs and subfloor) can come directly in contact with the firebox; no clearance is required, allowing lots of installation flexibility. A fireplace is the heart of the home as well as the focal point of a living room. If all you have is a blank wall, that is a blank canvas to us! Whether you desire something modern or traditional, ‘just for looks’ or for serious heat, Rochester Fireplace has it covered.
