10 Reasons Why Summer Is The Perfect Time To Remodel Your Fireplace

As temperatures rise and the days become longer, summer becomes a season of possibilities and opportunities. While many people associate summer with vacations and outdoor activities, it's also an ideal time to embark on some home improvement projects. One area of your home that often goes overlooked but can greatly enhance both its beauty and functionality is remodeling your fireplace.

At Stoll Industries, you can explore a wide range of options and give your fireplace a stunning makeover to elevate your space. Whether you're interested in refacing your gas or electric fireplace, upgrading or replacing the doors, adding a non-combustible mantel, or completely transforming the surround, Stoll Industries has the products you need.

In this blog post, we'll explore ten compelling reasons why summer is the perfect time to breathe new life into your fireplace and how with the help of Stoll Industries you can create a cozy haven for the cold months ahead.

1. Less likely to need your fireplace in the summer

With rising temperatures outside, the allure of a crackling fire may not be the first thing on your mind. That's why summer is the perfect time for a fireplace makeover. By remodeling during this season, you can avoid disruptions to your home's heating system and take your time with the project. Enjoy the freedom to plan, select materials, and work closely with contractors without feeling rushed to complete the renovation.

2. Longer days and more natural light

During the summer, you have longer days with more daylight to work on your brick, tile, or stone fireplace makeover. The natural light through the windows makes the process easier and more enjoyable. 

Whether you’re simply creating a painted brick fireplace, installing a new fireplace mantel, or giving your fireplace a complete overhaul, you get much more done on a summer’s day compared to other times of the year.

3. Less disruption to your daily life

Whether it's enjoying vacations, exploring nature, or simply soaking up the sun, the summer season will likely see you spending much less time indoors. This means that when you remodel your fireplace during the summer, you won't have to navigate around construction materials in your living room or deal with the noise and dust that go hand-in-hand with remodeling projects.

4. Off-season discounts

During summer, demand for fireplace materials and accessories typically decreases compared to the colder months. 

As a result, suppliers and retailers are more likely to offer off-season discounts and promotions to attract customers and clear their inventory.

These discounts can apply to various fireplace-related items, including mantels, hearths, tiles, inserts, and decorative elements like fireplace screens and tools.

5. Increased home value

A well-designed and upgraded fireplace can significantly increase the retail value of your house. In fact, a remodeled fireplace is the perfect way to create a welcoming atmosphere that potential buyers find appealing. For example, at Stoll Industries, we offer a number of products that can help increase the value of your home including modern fireplace doors, custom build-out kits, and high quality mantels equipped with built-in bluetooth and lights. If you plan to put your home on the market for fall or winter, then summer is the perfect time to get renovations of your outdated fireplace underway.

By remodeling your dated fireplace during the summer, you can address any ventilation or air quality issues that may be present. This proactive approach allows you to improve the functionality of your fireplace and ensure that when you start using it in the colder months, you'll enjoy the comforting warmth and breathe cleaner and healthier air.

9. Planning ahead for permits

Starting the remodeling process in the summer allows you ample time to handle any permits or inspections required for your stone, tile, or brick fireplace makeover. By proactively navigating through the necessary paperwork or approvals during the summer months, you can avoid any potential delays or pushbacks that may arise.
