You may not be thinking about a roaring fire when the heat is blazing outside, but summer is a great time for a fireplace update.

Here are just a few ways to tackle a fireplace update with a fabulous facelift.



If you don’t have a door on your fireplace, you are missing out on both beauty and function. A fireplace door not only changes the whole look of your fireplace but also increases energy efficiency in the summer AND winter months! It’s also a great way to protect your fur babies and little ones.

If you already have a fireplace door, maybe it’s time to update the design. We have fireplace doors for every style and every type of fireplace. Now is the time to get your fireplace refreshed and ready for the cooler months. You’ll be amazed by the results!

Check out our free online visualizer tool to see the dramatic fireplace update a new door will bring. Choose from different styles, finishes, accents for every type of fireplace.

Tired of that brick fireplace? Yes, brick is classic and traditional, but sometimes you just need something fresh. Our versatile wall panel systems are an ideal solution. Metal wall panels are installed directly over the brick. Not a fan of metal? We've got you covered with various material options.  Choose from elegant glass panels, farmhouse shiplap, or unique contemporary porcelain "fabric" panels. We even have an aluminum system that is suitable for your outdoor porch or patio.
