My 42 inch fire place is a Majestic. On the remote control it shows Vermont castings. Do you think this hood will fit my fire place?

Answer:This hood is made for certain Vantage Hearth fireplaces. Because of the difference in brands, the products will likely not fit. However, if you are able to provide the exact model number of your Majestic fireplace, I will be happy to research the correct hood for your needs.

Can you please provide installation instructions? I have a stone fireplace.

Answer:This hood is actually designed to install onto certain models of Vantage Hearth fireplaces and will likely not work with other models. Is your stone fireplace enclosing a metal firebox or is it simply an open faced fireplace? If it is the latter of the two, what is the width of the fireplace opening?

I have a 42" wood-burning Heatilator fireplace, which is double-sided, and I am looking for a hood that is compatible. The other fireplace I have has a hood already attached which is approximately 2' wide and I like this and would like something similar. I am afraid the 4" models could pose a problem when I am cleaning ash from my wood-burning fireplace. Also, I have holes already pre-drilled for a hood on the wood-burning fireplace black metal surround.

We do offer universal hoods with a shallow 2-inch projection, which can be ordered in a surface mount style that attaches to the fireplace facing. It is unlikely that the current holes would be used, as they are intended for a factory fit type of hood.
The universal hood we carry is the Elite Square End Fireplace Hood with Lintel Mount - 42 Inch x 2 Inch
. It mentions a lintel mount in the title, but the hood can be made as a surface mount style.
