Answer:Currently, we only have door overlays listed on our site. We can special order doors for specific brands and models. First determine the manufacturer name, model number, and serial number.

I purchased an old potbelly iron stove, and I'm planning on placing it on my deck. What should I use to place on the deck under stove to protect the deck from heat?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 1, 2013
I recommend using a type 2 hearth board, which will have a built in layer of insulating material to help dissipate heat before it reaches the deck. An example is the Hy-C 36-inch x 36-inch Type 2 UL1618 Black Stove Board
. Depending on the size of the stove, you may need a larger or smaller board, but this will give you an idea of the appearance and price.
Cast iron and porcelain coated steamers and kettles are the perfect accessories for your wood burning stove. Burning wood creates a dry atmosphere so adding humidity to your living space is easy with a kettle or steamer. Besides making steam, they can make a great cup of tea or hot chocolate to enjoy by the warmth of your stove. Trivets can withstand high temperatures up to 300 degrees F and make a great spot for cooking on your wood stove.
