There are two common types of fireplaces. We’ll refer to the first as a true masonry fireplace. They are built entirely of brick or stone. These are primarialy found in homes built before the 1970’s. The second type is a manufactured fireplace. They are built of metal, but may have decorative brick inside. They quickly gained popularity after their introduction in the 1970’s.
