    I would like a simple fireplace surround. Width of opening is 34.5" and height is 28.5", do you have anything I can use?
    1 Answer
    Our surrounds are model specific and we will not have anything that precise. We would recommend you have something locally fabricated for the best fit.

    I have built a indoor fireplace , stick built , covered inside and out with durarock board.i will be installing a ventless gas log set .what is the best thing to install over the durarock inside the firebox
    1 Answer
    Perhaps you would consider decorative firebox panels inside the fireplace. Please see the following links: One 24"h x 28"w Panel Two 24" h x 40"w Panels These panels are about 1" thick and can be cut down to the size you need with a masonry blade or tile saw. They are suitable for use as side, rear and floor panels inside any manufactured woodburning fireplace.

    What's the difference between a fireplace front and a fireplace frame?
    1 Answer
    Generally speaking, a fireplace front will cover some of the firebox facing while a fireplace frame or surround will cover any gaps left during the finishing phase of installation. Please note that all of the frames and surrounds offered on our site will be manufacturer and model-specific to the fireplaces we also advertise on our site and would only work if you currently own one of these models.

    How do I actually attach the surround to the wall? I am trying to make a fake fireplace and there is not a gas fireplace inset or furnace inside my current wood burning fireplace. May I use liquid nails to "stick the surround to the wall?" Thank you.
    1 Answer
    You might want to use a RTV silicone, in case you ever decide to use the fireplace again.

    I have a Travis Industries 2001 DVS fireplace insert with an Avalon Salish Bay DVS face on the front of it. I would like to remove the Salish Bay face and replace it with a flat plain flush face. Less decorative is better; I want a modern look. Pictures are attached. I can provide dimensions. The glass in the insert is 24" x 12" and I would like as much of that as possible to be visible. Do you have something that would work, or can you direct me to someplace that might be able to help me? Thank you.
    1 Answer
    You would have to contact Travis industries or one of their dealers as we do not sell parts for Travis Fireplaces.

    I'm trying to use reclaimed wood as a surround, however, the builder insisted I use tile to create a 12" spacing between the wood and the gas fireplace. What can I use instead of the tile?

    from Fort Mill, SC asked:
    January 1, 2017
    I'd like to replace the shiny brass surround and screen on our fireplace with a new black one. We have new gas logs (replaced some that were very old). The current surround has glass doors and a hood. I'm not sure of the exact inside measurements, but the opening seems to be around 48" wide and 32" tall. I am not sure if the glass doors are necessary, but the man who installed the logs said we really needed the hood because of the heat output. I would like your guidance in what product you'd suggest for our needs. I've attached a picture.
    1 Answer
    To replace the surround and doors, we would need to know the opening height and width of the fireplace without the doors and surround. However, please note that any replacement enclosure we would offer would also include doors, which should always be left in the fully open position when gas logs are in operation. We would not offer any optional surround without the doors, but could offer an optional enclosure hood to fit over the door assembly, much like what is already in place. The only other alternative would be to simply sand, clean and paint the existing enclosure and hood with any of the High Temperature Stove Paint & Fireplace Paint we offer.

    December 2, 2016
    I have a fireplace that was installed in the 70's. Everything works fine, but it is the "old school" brass finish. I would like to change it for a matte black finish. How difficult is this typically? Is it normally just a matter of pulling the existing cover off and putting a new one on? What do I need to give you to determine what I need?
    1 Answer
    There likely isn't a front that would be able to replace your current one. You will likely want to paint it with high heat stove paint.

    I have a brick fireplace with an opening that is 44" W x 28" H. I currently have a metal frame with glass doors that is surface mounted to the brick on the face of the fireplace. Can any of your products be installed that way or is there a better alternative?
    1 Answer
    Many of our glass door assemblies are installed in this very way. One of the most popular options is the Textured Black Princeton Glass Enclosure. There is also the option to have what is known as an "inside fit" door enclosure made. The system is designed to mount flush with the fireplace opening. An exact upper and lower width, as well as a left and right height measurement must be taken, as most fireplace openings are slightly imperfect.

    Is it possible to modify this fireplace insert facing and surround with some personalized, individual tiles? I would like to have some custom made tiles by an artist friend of mine incorporated into the surround and hearth.
    1 Answer
    While the surrounds that you see are for specific fireplaces and inserts and cannot be modified, there would be no reason why non-combustible material couldn't be used to finish out or tile over a surround. You would need to use refractory mortar to bond the tile to the facing or surround.

    from Ontario, Canada asked:
    January 13, 2014
    We are looking to change up our fireplace - but I don't know if the ugly gold piece around the insert is removable or even what is behind it! Our plan is to paint the brick - bottom line - I don't like the gold piece framing the fireplace and I don't know if I need to replace it with something else, or if I can just take it off - my hope is there is brick behind it!
    1 Answer
    From your attached photo, it appears the brass/gold surround is actually a shroud for the insert. This component is usually provided to conceal any extra space that you may have between the insert and the edges of the fireplace opening. As such, you will likely have a gap behind the shroud. These shrouds are usually snapped into position and can be removed by pulling up and away from the insert. It is possible to paint the shroud by roughing up the surface and adding a coat of primer before painting. Depending on the age, brand, and model of the insert, other shrouds may still be available to work for your needs.

    I have a noise coming from my blower located under the bottom of the fire box for the gas logs. I need to remove the metal surround plate to access the blower but see no hardware which may secure this plate. So what's the trick to removing this plate?
    1 Answer
    While it depends on the manufacturer, almost every surround I have worked with is assembled into one piece and sits in position on shoulder screws which are welded or threaded to brackets on the unit. The surround will usually come off if you lift upwards and tilt it forward from the unit. Some surrounds are tighter to the facing than others.

    I want to update my Napoleon GI3014B-N model. Can I remove the brass on it or would a current model gas insert surround by Napoleon fit my particular model?
    1 Answer
    Per the manufacturer, the surround and louvers were specific to this model. The current GI3600 is close in design, but not an exact match to this unit. As such, the surround and louvers would need to be painted. This can be done by removing them from the unit, sanding them lightly with fine grit sand paper, then wiping them down with a damp cloth. Once dry, begin applying light coatings of high temperature paint, such as the Stove Bright Satin Black Touch Up Paint - 43200. I apologize that the original parts are no longer available.

    What size shroud do we need for a 36" high, 40 1/2" wide Osburn 2400 Insert?
    1 Answer
    Being that the fireplace is 36" high, you would need to have an additional shroud fabricated to cover the distance from the medium sized 32" high shroud.

    How do I determine what size face to purchase?
    1 Answer
    The fireplace facings and surrounds that we carry are all intended to be used with specific models of fireplaces and inserts. You will definitely need to know that manufacturer name and model number of the fireplace to determine what parts will work with the unit. There should be a build tag or sticker with the unit, either just inside the opening at the left or right side, or in the void space beneath the firebox floor.

    I have a Pacific Energy "super" insert. It's their midsize insert. But I'm not crazy about the surround. My fireplace opening is s bit high so I hit the jumbo size surround and it's just a monstrous wall of black metal. The fireplace itself is only a few inches wider than the stove. Can you point me toward some taller narrower options that would fit?
    1 Answer
    Fireplace insert manufacturers produce their own line of surrounds that must be used with their specific products. Unfortunately, I do not carry a universal type of surround that would work with your insert. It is likely that your best option would be to purchase the larger surround that is offered by Pacific Energy and have the item modified by a local sheet metal fabricator. They will be able to cut and finish the surround to smaller dimensions that would better suit your needs. I apologize that I do not offer a surround that could work.

    from Media, PA asked:
    November 18, 2012
    I am looking for a high efficiency wood fireplace insert for a 44" x 30" fireplace opening. The sides are recessed by 2", so I need a faceplate of exactly 30" high. I can find faceplaces of either 29" or 32" high but nothing 30" high. I thought of getting a 32" faceplate and cutting it down but I'm not sure I could a good seal. Are their any adjustable faceplaces?
    1 Answer
    Because fireplace insert manufacturers make their shrouds to exact measurements, it would be necessary to purchase a larger shroud and have it cut down to fit your needs. Achieving a tight seal against the fireplace opening is not necessary, as the insert's firebox is completely sealed and will vent into the chimney using a flexible liner. Some air interchange between the room air and air behind the flashing is normal.

    from Omaha, NE asked:
    November 2, 2012
    We bought a house with a gas fireplace, and the front face of it is just a hideous black with gold stripes going across. We would love to replace it, but we're not sure exactly what we need to do. The front face is easily removable via two screws from the bottom. The firebox itself is about 5 or 6 inches off the ground, and the blowing unit and all the remote control switches and such are below. There is also about 3 inches of space on top where the air comes out, and it is recessed in the wall about 1/2 inch.
    1 Answer
    We do offer a selection of fireplace surrounds and fronts. However, they are highly model specific. Please reply with the manufacturer name and model number of your fireplace, so we'll be better able to research a replacement fireplace surround.

    We have a decorative gas fireplace that vents directly outside through the back wall. Very little heat comes through the glass. No fireplace masonry. We would like to replace it with a unit that will be decorative and provide heat during a power outage. With no masonry, I assume that we need zero clearance sides to the firebox. The current unit looks to be 36 inches high by 36 inches wide and about 22 inches deep. We have about 12 inches of tile on the sides and top that we are planning to replace. Some of the units I have looked at required the masonry fireplace surround. I expect that I will be able to install this myself once I am able to figure out everything that we need.
    1 Answer
    Yes, you would indeed need a zero clearance direct vent gas fireplace, and we have plenty of options in a 36" width size. Please see our full selection of zero clearance direct vent fireplaces and, once you have chosen a few that interest you, we would be happy to make a recommendation for your application. You can narrow the search by utilizing the menus on the left-hand side of that page.
