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

The 36" wide Rumford is the most traditional and efficient size for living or family rooms up to 400 square feet in area. The height and widely flared covings of the Rumford make it look much bigger than other 36" wide fireplaces.

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.

Check for more information about herringbone fireboxes, terra cotta mantels and decorative clay chimney pots.
