If you have a model number listed on our website you will only need to verify your opening height and width.
When building your door from the ground up we need an extra set of measurements for recess depth) and your pictures sent to email@example.com. This allows us to be sure that our door system will work properly and we know that you have measured in the right places.

For the majority of the fireplaces, we use a Frame with the 2 (Bi-Fold) Glass Doors to properly retrofit your fireplace.
How To Install Prefab (Zero Clearance) Fireplace doors
This frame is installed by sliding the frame back into the opening approximately 1 1/8 inch. The frame is secured by 4 screws. Next the doors are snapped into the newly installed frame. This ensures a proper fit every time.
The EZ Fireplace Doors are mounted inside the opening. See diagram below.
The recess depth is an important measurement because you want your fireplace doors and new frame pieces to lay flush to the fireplace. The new fireplace doors will need to push back in a little ways on all four sides and some of our doors require more recess depth than others.
The Brick-Anew team was so patient answering my million and one questions before I would order the doors. Seriously, though, the doors are so easy to install - don't let that part prevent you from getting rid of your ugly doors!. (Posted on 3/12/2019)
I had great experience with your company. The woman who answered the phone was wonderful spending nearly a 1/2 hour or more figuring out the model , measuring, and telling me how to install everything. So the installing went smoothly and the doors open and close beautifully and the mesh screen is just as nice..
The doors installed very easily. About 15 minutes total. 4 screws secured the frame to the existing frame and then the doors popped right in and made a nice clean, factory look. Very happy with this product. (Posted on 12/18/2018)
