Making sure you get the right sized door for your fireplace is important. Premade masonry doors come in an overlap fit and are made in a few general sizes. These doors are quick shipped and economically priced. Premade doors can be bulky due to the larger sizes manufacturers make to accommodate a larger number of fireplaces. Custom doors are made to fit your fireplace based on the measurements you provide. These doors might be a little more expensive but are worth the extra cost since they look elegant with a cleaner looking fit. You also have the choice of premium finishes and types of glass that enhance your home’s decor. Be sure to ask if the doors come with a mesh curtain option.

Overlap Fit or Inside Fit?

You have a choice of an inside fitting masonry door or an outside or overlap fit. Depending on which you prefer, both styles will enhance the look of your fireplace. If your fireplace is made of a material like rock or stone with jagged. rough edges, you probably want to go with an inside fitted door. This is because the outside fit door is mounted to the fireplace surface and will not sit flush. Outside fit doors work better on materials such as smooth brick, marble, or tile. Inside fit doors are flush with the firebox opening. If you’re not sure if your brick’s surface is smooth enough for outside fit doors, inside fit would be a better option..

Aluminum is less expensive, rust free, and comes in a variety of powder coated and anodized finishes.
