Fireplace Services We Offer at LanChester Grill & Hearth

Whether you’re considering replacing an old fireplace and mantel shelf, or want to add a completely new fireplace to any room in your home, you might be surprised how quickly it can be done. Here are two of the most popular services that we offer for fireplaces.

Retrofit Fireplaces

Whether you’re putting up with a drafty fireplace that just doesn’t work the way it should or have an older fireplace in need of an update, we can help! We specialize in retrofit fireplace installation. We can replace your old fireplace without removing the fireplace mantel or stone facade, usually in one day. Learn more about our one-day fireplace installations.

We can even upgrade your fireplace mantel shelf with a brand new facade, in brick or stone, or add matching cabinetry around your fireplace for a truly seamless look and feel.

New Fireplace Installation

Would you love to add a new heating source—such as a wood-burning or gas fireplace—to your family room, master bedroom, living room, or just about any other space? Have you been told you “can’t put a fireplace there,” or that a wall-mounted fireplace just won’t work in your home? Then we want to talk with you!

Our fireplace experts can evaluate your space and provide a variety of options to install the fireplace you’ve always dreamed about! Are you looking for a wall-mounted or vented fireplace? Contact us for practical solutions without pressure!

Fireplace Inserts

Another specialty here at LanChester Grill & Hearth is our fireplace inserts. Similar to a retrofit fireplace, fireplace inserts differ in that they work as self-contained units that you can install to wherever you have a pre-existing chimney or vent. If you’re looking for all of the charm and warmth a fireplace brings and want less hassle, an insert may be for you!

Get in touch with us to learn more about our gas or electric fireplace inserts. We’ll help you determine the best fireplace insert for your space and how easy we make the installation process for you when we move forward.


Our experts specialize in retrofit fireplaces, which means most installations can be done the same day without the mess and minimal disruption to your daily routine. If you’re adding a fireplace as a heating source in a space that’s never had one before, these installations will take a bit longer, but we can typically complete your new fireplace installation in just a day or two.

Here at LanChester, we offer expert fireplace retrofits and new installation throughout Chadds Ford, Downingtown, Exton, Lancaster, West Chester, PA, Wilmington, DE, and Maryland.

Satisfied Customers

“We recently had a sunroom addition put on our house. The gas stove that we purchased from LanChester Gas changed it from a three season to a four season room. We love the way it looks and we are thrilled with how efficient it it. Not only does it make the sunroom very comfortable, it also warms the adjoining family room and kitchen area, allowing us to turn the furnace off for a good part of the day. Thank you for all your help in selecting the right stove for our needs.” – B & J Block

“We love our stove! It really brings beauty to the corner of our dining room. We get a lot of comments about it.” – Buddy & Judy Paulson
