"Building a Fire in Your New Fireplace"--

Additional materials, such as brick, block, concrete and mortar will be needed.

The 24" wide Rumford is particularly useful for rebuilding existing gas and coal fireplaces in older homes. See Victorian Rumfords. It can be ordered without the flues for use with an 8" dia. stainless steel or poured refractory flue liner.

Superior Clay Corporation manufactures many different throats, smoke chambers and clay flue liners for Rumford fireplaces as well as Standard masonry fireplaces. Custom sizes and design help available.

A couple of Superior's decorative terra cotta chimney pots is an attractive way to finish the job.
