Home owner Frank Marinelli made a common mistake when building his Newport home 20 years ago. He saved money by covering the fireplace surrounds in his living and dining room with brick and inexpensive tile. That brick is now painted white and fading, the tile is chipped and the fireplaces are more than ready for a facelift. Frank calls on his old buddies, masons Dean and Derek, to revamp his two fireplace surrounds using polished granite and boulder veneer. Dean and Derek will take us inside the stone fabricator's shop; discuss what to look for in a good manufacturer and how to choose stone; and demonstrate how to revamp a fireplace surround.
