Hi Jonathan, This fireplace happens to be an enclosed, gas insert model. If it were a wood-burning fireplace I would not recommend this kind of surround. Best to go with stone or metal in those cases.

The fireplace surround was part of a larger project in this space, so its hard to put an exact cost on it. If this were stand alone project I would estimate around $3K to demo the existing surround and construct this new one. Not including the price of the fireplace insert itself, of course.

Thanks for the estimate. Not expensive. It's on my dream list.
