Custom Glass Doors For Your Fireplace - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove And FireplaceYour Fireplace Face-Lift

Many factory-manufactured (sometimes called pre-fab fireplaces) are average looking. Plus, many homeowners dislike the appearance of unsightly louvers and standard fireplace glass. If you’re happy with the performance of your fireplace, but aren’t enthusiastic about the look of it, you need a fireplace face-lift.

Beach Stove and Fireplace sells and installs custom glass from Stoll ReFace™  in a variety of designs. ReFace offers 12 different louver covers and 25 different finishes to create the most beautiful fireplace door for your home.

Because we want your fireplace door to be everything you want it to be and more, we also offer a variety of decorative designs, door handles, glass door types, glass and hinge styles, mesh door types, and key-lock options. It’s all of these things combined that make your fireplace yours.

Correcting The Draft

Your fireplace might be everything you want it to be, but the efficiency isn’t where it should be. If this is the case, you may be able to correct the problem with a glass door. A custom glass door with an air seal may be the perfect option to bring your fireplace efficiency up. The average fireplace loses about 80 to 90 percent of it’s heat into the house or up the chimney. Using an air seal door along with a properly installed damper system is a great way to raise efficiency in your fireplace. When your fireplace is more efficient, it produces more heat, wastes less wood fuel, and the chimney system works better because higher heat improves the updraft in the chimney.

The air seal door is also convenient for preventing a draft when your fireplace isn’t in use. During the off-season when your fireplace isn’t burning, and you still have a chimney allowing airflow from outside, a custom glass door can keep the outside out and the inside in. During the summer months humidity in the air rises, which can cause a mildew-type odor when combined with soot in the chimney flue. You don’t have to smell your chimney when your fire isn’t burning. Choose an air seal door today.

You can have the fireplace of your dreams. It’s possible with Beach Stove and Fireplace. A technician is standing by to take your call and discuss your new custom glass doors. Call 631-998-0780 or request an appointment online.

The Benefits of Glass Fireplace Doors

If you want to make your fireplace safer and more efficient, Beach Stove & Fireplace recommends installing glass fireplace doors. Not only do these doors improve the performance of a fireplace, but they also give you an easy way to update the look of your hearth. If you do not have glass doors installed in front of your fireplace, we would like to tell you more about the benefits of this fireplace accessory.



Without glass fireplace doors, cooled and heated air can easily escape through the chimney, which is a big waste of both money and energy. When you install these doors, you will be stopping the air from leaking out of your home. In the winter, your home will be warmer, and in the summer, your home will be cooler because your fireplace will be sealed shut by glass doors. We know you will see your utility bills decrease after installing glass fireplace doors.


Don’t be afraid that glass fireplace doors will keep the heat from the fire from spreading into your home. These doors actually improve the heating efficiency of a fireplace. The heat from the fire will radiate through the doors into the room.


If you have children and/or pets, keeping them safe can be a main concern. When you install glass fireplace doors, you are protecting your loved ones from getting into the fire accidentally. You still need to teach your children not to touch the glass doors as they become very hot. Glass fireplace doors also keep hot sparks and embers from jumping out of the fire into the room where they could possibly ignite a fire. They also prevent burning logs from falling out of the fireplace onto the floor.


If you would like to update the appearance of your fireplace but are on a budget, glass fireplace doors are an easy and relatively inexpensive way to do that. Beach Stove & Fireplace offers a wide variety of styles and designs of glass fireplace doors that will give you several options to give your hearth a new look.


Draft problems in your chimney can lead to downdrafts that cause smoke to come into your living space through the fireplace. Glass fireplace doors do not allow smoke to come in, and they can even eliminate any draft issues you may have.

The Benefits of Glass Doors on Fireplaces

Your fireplace is the focal point of any room, both beautiful and functional. Whether gas or the more traditional wood, it adds value to your home and can be customized based on your preferences and lifestyle. Adding glass doors to your fireplace will not only heighten the allure and ambience of the area, but provide several other benefits as well:


An open fire is a hazard for pets and children as they are attracted to the glow and are curious and exploring creatures. Even oblivious adults can hurt themselves if sitting too close or not being careful around the flame. Doors that separate the fire from the rest of the room give you peace of mind, and protect the innocent and unaware. Glass doors will keep any sparks or flying embers from hurting your loved ones, or damaging your flooring. Your home furnishings, and therefore your home, will be protected.



Lower Costs:

Installing glass doors in your home aren’t only safe, though that alone is reason enough, they are also very cost efficient. The warm air that is in your house, as a result of your fire, actually stays in your house! Glass doors seal off air from escaping up the chimney, so your house stays at a warmer temperature, and you don’t have to pay extra money for another heat source. Dampers just don’t do the job: actual doors are the only way to keep your fireplace sealed off.


Not only do glass doors keep your fireplace sealed off, they also transfer heat extremely well. The doors radiate the heat emitted from a fireplace much more evenly around the room. Since they are located so close to the fire itself, they are also able to transfer a larger percentage of heat emitted by the flames, as opposed to what we could feel without getting burned. Because the fire is enclosed, the logs produce a higher temperature flame, which is then released evenly into the room via the glass doors.

Beauty and Style:

Getting glass doors is a simple step towards creating a more relaxed, classier environment. They come in a variety of shapes and styles that you can choose depending on the décor and look you desire. Though we encourage an annual chimney and fireplace inspection and sweep, if you do have an unsightly fireplace, glass doors will conceal it. Ashes and blackened logs don’t have to ruin the ambiance you worked so hard to create.

There are so many reasons to install glass doors. If you have any questions about how to add extra allure to your home, or are curious about other services we provide, don’t hesitate to visit our website or call us.
