FAQs

Adding masonry fireplace glass doors doesn’t just make your fireplace look more presentable, but also makes it more efficient and safer.

Guide to the basics of Fireplace Glass Door installation

Prepare all the tools you need. To install the fireplace door yourself, you are going to need tools for it to be properly installed.

Again, the tools needed may vary depending on the type of your masonry fireplace door. However, the basic tools would include an electric drill, a Phillips head screwdriver, tape measure, and drill bits.

Be wary of improper measurements. The fireplace door needs to have a proper fit for it to work its function efficiently. This is where your tape measure will come in handy.

Take note of the material of the fireplace door you are about to install. Will it be steel or aluminum? Does your door have an inside fit? Consider the specifics of your fireplace door to make sure you follow the right instructions.

When it doubts, know that you can reach us for help. The instructions on installing a fireplace glass door are pretty straightforward.

However, if you think your fireplace has some other special requirements, you can simply give us a call or you can also email us. Surely, our experts will help you with proper installation.

We've attempted to put together a basic tutorial to show you how simple it is to complete this task on your own without the help of a professional.

Q: How Do I Install A Fireplace Door?

A: It’s easy with directions!

Every fireplace door comes complete with an installation guide. That being said, the method of fireplace door installation will be different for each model.

The key instructions will depend on the manufacturer, the measurements of your application, and the type of fireplace that you have (prefab or masonry).
But, just to roughly give you an idea of the basics that you need to consider, here’s a quick walkthrough of our short guide.

Q: Won’t a screen work just as well?

A: Fireplace glass doors are more reliable compared to 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, while keeping your children and pets out! Without them, the likelihood of hot cinders flying around damaging carpet and furnishing is quite apparent. (Please note that only certain fireplace doors should be closed while a firebox is in use. Read more about glass types in our article ‘What’s the Difference Between Tempered and Ceramic Glass’)

Without a well-placed fireplace glass door, it may also harbor the risk of logs rolling out and causing harm to your home. Adding a door to your fireplace is a secure and inexpensive way to keep dangerous hazards contained, and your home and loved ones safe!

Q: Why are fireplace doors necessary?

A: It promotes SAFETY

Fireplace glass doors are essential in keeping you and your loved ones safe in the most cozy, comfortable corner of your home!

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 warm yourself by getting cozy next to the hearth.

This sounds like a relaxing thing to do, but doing so can potentially put you at risk. Curious little pets and small, often precarious children in your home could be injured or burned if your fireplace isn’t secure.

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.

With a fireplace glass door installed on your masonry fireplace, you will provide an enclosure that serves as a protection against accidents when the fireplace is cold. Fireplace mesh, which is often included with fireplaces, will keep them safe as the flames flicker.

For an added safety measure: keep little hands away from the fire by placing a decorative fireplace screen in front of the doors.

There are several protective folding varieties available in our collection that will not just serve as additional protection but also beautify your fireplace even more!
These decorative fireplace screens add beauty and character to your already attractive hearth!

Q: Will this stop cold air from coming in?

A: They keep dangerous downdrafts from entering your living space!

Installing glass doors for your fireplace has been proven to reduce downdrafts from the chimney. Downdrafts from winter storms can pull dangerous smoke into your home and can cause a multitude of problems.

In the event of a downdraft, it is also possible that embers can escape the fireplace and cause damage or worse, a fire. Closing your glass doors eliminates the hazards that accompany downdrafts.

(Plus, it makes your fireplace a lot more EFFICIENT!)

Q: Why can’t I just put in a damper?

A: Fireplace doors are 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.

It’s difficult to rely on it when longevity and durability are in question. Instead of relying solely on the damper, you could simply add fireplace doors to significantly 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 by having a fireplace glass door installed for your masonry fireplace.
