This has to do more with the fireplace than the actual chimney work...

I have noticed more and more people requesting old-world brick and stone fireplaces to be placed in their homes. I think a lot of people are craving the old-world styles of yester-year and this can be a very good thing for any roofing company that also deals with chimney work. 

Anyone notice a boom in the trend?

I think a lot of things are making a come back because people are running out of ideas. I would not be surprised to start seeing the old world stoves and ovens coming back either. People like to have something with purpose and when you see everyone with the same kind of fire place, you are more likely to want something different.

I wouldn't call this a trend. Most people who have the money prefer stone and brick fireplaces over the general drywall job I see on a lot of newer homes.

I guess this is true. Most people do feel they look better than the other options out there.

It is kind of funny how that works. That is actually a prime example of marketing, using people's desires to be "better" or "different" from everyone else. This is how phone companies have fooled so many in to buying a new smart phone every year.

Yeaaaaauuup! 

I can't tell you how many people in my family fall for these tactics with everything from phones to general house repair.

I never heard of something like this being a trend. It usually goes with the house style. This is new to me!
