Let’s get started by choosing your project type…

New Construction

Chose new construction or “zero-clearance” fireplaces if you are building a new home or remodeling with a fireplace addition or replacement. New construction fireplaces are installed during open framing and require fireplace venting to outside the building structure.  (Vent-free fireplaces are illegal in California.)  Another option to consider for new construction would be to add a free-standing stove.

Fireplace Inserts

Chose a fireplace insert if adding a fireplace that fits inside your existing fireplace opening. Inserts dramatically increase heating efficiency and reduce fuel costs when compared with an open fireplace. Inserts are typically used for zone-heating, ambiance, and to enhance fireplace safety. Inserts typically require your existing fireplace to be in working order prior to installation.

Free Standing Stoves

Choose a freestanding stove to add warmth and ambiance to any room. These stoves require venting to outside the building structure.  (Vent-free stoves are illegal in California.) Stoves typically must sit on non-combustible flooring (or wood flooring if a gas stove). In new construction or extensive remodels, installation of the venting occurs before roofing so the roofer can “flash-in” the stove pipe. The stove is installed later on the finished hearth or floor near the end of the project.

Built-In Outdoor

Outdoor fireplaces are installed during framing as new construction fireplaces noted above. Typically they are gas and are vent-free (which are allowed outdoors only in California). This means that there is no vent and the by-products of combustion come out the front. Typically 30% or more of the sides of the outdoor room or the roof must be open. Specifications vary according to the manufacturer.

Fireplace Style

Our brought fireplace selection is divided into three main categories. Please pick one that suits your desires and fits your style…


Traditional fireplaces or stoves will typically feature standard logs and more traditonal styles and trims.


Transitional hearth products will offer a more modern sensibility. Either the trims will be more open and sparse or the fire feature will present a somewhat non-traditional element such as using a rock style burner instead of wood or using driftwood instead of traditional logs. The idea is that transitional products can blend with a more modern or traditional home decor.


Contemporary designs have a tendency to shun conventional limitations. For example, instead of mimicking a traditional wood fire, a contemporary design may use crushed glass in the burner and the fireplace might present a more linear shape than an old fashioned fireplace.
