A new homeowner is contemplating opening a bricked-up fireplace and is at a loss as to where to start. Can a fireplace that has been sealed and out of use for years be opened up and restored to wood-burning condition or do regulations require that it be a gas fireplace? Would this be a job for a general contractor or is a specialist needed?
Please chime in with your advice.
