Tile by Ryan's Design and Remodel
Ryan's notes Whether you are creating a new fireplace or remodeling an existing one, layout and planning are critical. I enjoy working up and installing hearth designs from base to mantle. As in any tile job, it is important to ensure that the surface is stable for tile application. It can be a costly mistake to attach tile directly to existing brick without using either tile backerboard or wire lath.

If you are planning to add an insert or woodstove to your home I can work with your stove installer to ensure compliance with building codes. Natural stone is beautiful in any hearth, but once again the choices are endless - porcelain, ceramic and, my favorite, hand painted tiles. The hearth is often a focal point in a home or living area - it is a great place to be creative and express your personal style.
