In the market for custom fireplace doors? We build our custom doors to order to fit into the dimensions of your fireplace. That’s not all! Your door will not only be a perfect fit for your fireplace, but it can also be a perfect fit for your decor. You can customize the frame and the glass to ensure your fireplace doors are everything you want them to be.

Custom Glass Fireplace Doors

What is a custom fireplace door? Fireplace doors fall into two categories: stock and custom-built. Stock doors are mass-produced doors that are ready as soon as you order them. Each model comes in three preset sizes. If the dimensions of one of the stock sizes matches your fireplace dimensions, then you’re good to go. However, if your fireplace differs even slightly in size from the stock door sizes, your doors won’t be a perfect fit.

Custom fireplace doors are built to the exact dimensions you request so they will fit your fireplace perfectly. The size is not the only customizable feature though.  You can choose between 14 frame colors and three glass tints.  You can add a screen or a damper, and you can choose the style of the doors themselves.

Masonry vs Prefab/Zero Clearance Fireplace Doors

You could have a masonry fireplace or a prefabricated (also called zero clearance) fireplace.  Masonry fireboxes are made of stone or brick while prefabricated fireplaces are made of metal.  Rap on the walls of your firebox with your knuckles to see what kind of fireplace you have.  Watch this video for more information.

Masonry fireplaces accept overlap fit doors.  These doors overlap the edge of the firebox.  Prefabricated fireplaces only accept inset fireplace doors.  These doors fit just inside the frame of your firebox and are flush with the surround.  Since prefab doors are inset, they must be custom made to fit smoothly into the firebox.  Masonry doors, however are a little more flexible.  Since the door fits outside the firebox, a range of sizes could technically fit the fireplace.  However, this can lead to a sloppy fit.  In this image, you can see that the door overlaps the top of the fireplace so far that you can see brick within the door frame.

While custom doors are more expensive, they provide a perfect fit and can be customized to match the color of the brick and other decor.  These doors were custom made for the same fireplace in the image above. The fit is perfect and the frame matches the brick for a polished, professional look. That kind of precision can be worth the price.

Please note the prefab doors on this page are for customers who do not know their manufacturer.  If you can find your manufacturer (located on a metal tag in you firebox) you'll want to shop doors made for that manufacturer.  All the general doors you see on this page are also available made for specific manufacturers.

Style Customization Options

Arched Custom Glass Fireplace Doors

Arched doors come in two variations: (1) a square piece of glass with an arched piece of metal in front of it to create the illusion of arched glass and (2) real arched glass inside a metal frame to fit. Typically the second kind of arched door will be much more expensive; however, the true arched glass provides a majestic look that other doors can't mimic.

Forged Iron Custom Fireplace Doors

Fireplace door frames used to be made of iron. However, modern fireplace doors are made of either steel or aluminum. Powder coated steel doors can have a beautiful forged iron appearance.

Custom Glass Fireplace Doors Powder Coating

Steel fireplace door frames can be colored using a powder coating. This is a heat safe and durable color coating that will last as long as your fireplace doors do. If your doors are aluminum, they will be anodized, not powder coated.  Either way, you'll have a beautifully colored, heat-resistant frame.  Aluminum can also be hammered into different textures, but steel will always have a flat finish.

Custom Glass Fireplace Door Mesh Screens

While fireplace doors often have to have exact measurements to fit into the firebox, fireplace screens aren’t as demanding. Brick-Anew does not offer custom mesh screens, though you can add a screen to your custom fireplace door.
