Fireplace doors can be a beautiful and practical addition to your fireplace! Technicians at Midtown Chimney Sweeps would be glad to help you measure, order, and install the doors of your choice.

Choosing the perfect doors

Fireplace doors are custom-built for the dimensions of your fireplace so you can be sure that your doors will fit perfectly and look amazing. Here are five easy steps to designing your perfect doors:

1. Determine your type of fireplace.

There are many types of fireplaces, such as masonry, factory-built/prefabricated, direct vent, vent free, and electric.

Masonry fireplaces are built with brick or stone and usually have a chimney made of the same brick or stone. Factory-built/prefabricated fireplaces usually consist of metal boxes, and the chimney is usually faced with the same material as your house. Such fireplaces, which are also called “Zero Clearance” or “ZC” fireplaces, require an air exchange between the firebox and combustible materials used around fireplace’s enclosure. ZC doors are designed to allow the required airflow that keeps your prefabricated fireplace working correctly. Direct vent fireplaces have sealed ceramic glass in the front and are vented directly through the wall.

2. Choose the style and model of your doors.

Be sure that the doors’ style and model complements your fireplace well. Manufactured doors come in both steel and aluminum. Some feature laser-cut steel doors for customers that want a more “traditional” or “old-fashioned” style. Some are made from heavy-gauge aluminum and offer sleek and minimal frame designs, perfect for today’s contemporary style.

As far as old-fashioned door models go, you could choose from the classic style with its rugged steel construction and popular design options like arch doors and window panes. Choose the exclusive “Cutback” option to get a minimal frame with maximum style and glass.

4. Choose your finish.

Fireplace doors are available in over 25 powder-coat finishes that have been popular with thousands of customers. The popular models are available in all colors of powder-coat finishes and add more options like Oil-Rubbed Bronze, Antique Copper, and our exclusive “Hand-Crafted” finishes. Other doors are available in 28 powder-coat finishes and 3 anodized finishes like Satin Nickel and Satin Brass. Whether you prefer the classic look of “Ancient Age” or the bold style of “Copper Fire”, you’re sure to find the finish that works perfectly with your fireplace.

5. Choose your decorative options.

Add mesh doors or a mesh curtain. Choose a handle that best fits your style. You might even want to add a matching tool set to complete your doors.

Once you’ve created your doors, our trained installers can help you with measuring and ordering your door. And in a few weeks, your technician will visit your home to install your doors. Your fireplace will never have looked better!
