Stone Hearth Fireplaces FAQs

We offer a variety of models for our stone hearths to best suit the needs of your home. The factors that determine which stone hearth fireplace is right for your home, are the dimensions of your space, personal design specifications and the flooring material bordering the fireplace.

A hearth is the surrounding of a fireplace, it can be located at the foot of the firebox and extends into the room parallel to the floor. A gas fireplace would not necessarily need a hearth as there is no releasing of ashes or smoke during the burning process. A hearth becomes a smart add-on in the case of wood-burning fireplaces for reasons such as the production of embers, rolling logs, and creating a physical barrier between furniture and a fire.

WHAT IS A HEARTH?

A hearth is the floor of a fireplace that extends into a room and is made of incombustible materials like cement, brick, natural stone, or cast stone.

WHAT IS A STONE HEARTH FIREPLACE?

A stone hearth fireplace can either be made from natural stone or man-made cast stone. At Old World Stoneworks we choose cast stone because of its quality, durability, and variety of color options. Cast stone is less expensive to manufacture than natural stone is to quarry resulting in less cost passed on to our clients. The stone hearth surrounds the firebox and extends along the floor, creating a stone hearth fireplace.

DO I NEED A FIREPLACE HEARTH?

In the case that you own a gas powered fireplace, there is no reason other than aesthetics to have a fireplace hearth. For those who appreciate all the small pleasures that come from a traditional wood burning fireplace, then investing in a hearth will only enhance your fireplace as the focal point of a room. Beyond the powerful beauty of a stone hearth fireplace, a hearth protects wood flooring and carpets from damage caused by an open fire.
