Garrity Stone, Inc. of Indianapolis gives you a few tips on refacing your fireplace.

1. Consider your options.

3. Purchase quality supplies.

No matter what design you choose, you want to use the best supplies. For example, if you choose to use river rock, be sure to purchase it from a company specializing in stone and stone products. Similarly, make sure your other elements and supplies will stand the test of time.
