Masonry fireplaces are built simultaneously with the construction of a home. They are considered a work of art, as the professional mason who creates the fireplace must design it in such a way that it becomes part of the home's structure. The interior of a masonry fireplace is crafted from mortar and brick, while the exterior portion you enjoy in your living space may be made of matching material, stone, marble, granite, or even tile. Built to last a lifetime, they are meant to be a focal point in your home. You can enhance the beauty and appeal of your fireplace with one of our custom masonry doors.

Why are fireplace doors necessary?

    • They keep your loved ones safe!
      • It goes without saying that the flames from a roaring fire are intriguing to look at, and on particularly cold days, you can't help but cozy up to the hearth. This sounds wonderful and alluring, but stop and think for one moment about the curious little creatures and small, often precarious children in your home. The inviting warmth and ambiance of the flames in an open fireplace can be a little too enticing for them, and the last thing you want is an injury. 
      • For an added safety measure: keep little hands away from the hot glass by placing a decorative fireplace screen in front of the doors. There are several protective folding varieties available that will add even more beauty and character to your already attractive hearth!
    • They are more reliable than mesh screens!
      • While hanging mesh fireplace screens do provide a small measure of safety, they are not as secure as a fireplace door. Glass barriers significantly reduce the risk of damage by keeping sparks and embers within the fireplace, and children and pets out! Without them, the likelihood of hot cinders flying around and damaging carpet and furnishing, or logs rolling out and causing harm is a lot higher. Adding a door to your fireplace is a secure and inexpensive way to keep dangerous hazards contained, and your home and loved ones safe!
    • They keep dangerous downdrafts from entering your living space!
      • Installing glass doors for your fireplace has been proven to reduce downdrafts from the chimney. This incident of aggressive air paths from winter storms pulls dangerous smoke into your home and can cause a multitude of problems. In the event of a downdraft, it is also possible that embers will escape the hearth and cause damage, or even worse, a fire. Closing your glass doors eliminates the hazards that accompany downdrafts.
    • Fireplace doors are actually more efficient than chimney dampers!
      • Dampers are metal plates that regulate airflow in your chimney. Newly installed units fit like a glove, but after a year or two, they tend to warp and allow extra air to pass into the chimney. Instead of relying solely on the damper, you could simply add fireplace doors and greatly reduce the cost of your home’s heating and cooling bills. Prevent warm air from escaping your home during the winter, and keep cool air inside during the summer. 
    • Closing your glass doors will act as a barrier that encases the heat source!
    • This results in more heat being generated from the firewood. Heat is absorbed and radiated through the glass, and the output is more substantial than that of an open fireplace. This means you'll need less wood to generate warmth!

Do glass doors help a fireplace?

-Yes! Glass doors are great for helping your fire burn more efficiently. The glass doors will produce more heat and radiate the heat into your room better. They are a great way to control the heat and fire within your fireplace. 

What is a masonry fireplace?

-A masonry fireplace is built at the time of your home being built by a mason. They are usually made of brick or stone and mortar and part of your home structure.  

How do I know if my fireplace is masonry?

-There are a few ways you can verify if your fireplace is masonry. Taking the time to play detective and look at a few different aspects of your fireplace is the least time consuming and efficient way to tell. You will want to look at the following things: 

  • The firebox within the fireplace and if the firebox is built of individual firebrick
  • If you have a brick chimney
  • Built with brick or stone and mortar
