Email us pictures of your fireplace and we will create a project page for you in our Fireplace Door Photo Gallery with some mockups that show how various fireplace glass doors or screens will look on your fireplace. Our experts will review your pictures and help you find the perfect doors for your fireplace, show you how they will look before you buy them, and make sure you know how to measure and get them installed. We believe you will find no better way to shop for fireplace doors online!
*What Details To Include: Tell us a little bit about your fireplace and what you want to accomplish by adding glass doors. Take a look at our Fireplace Doors and Finish Samples and tell us what you like. If you don't know what you like or do not have time to look through our selection, that's OK, our experts will create some mockups of doors we think will work best. The more information you supply the more likely the mockups we create are going to be something you like.
About Finishes: We do these mockups by superimposing a picture of a fireplace door onto your picture. In some cases we can attempt to modify the finish of the doors, but we cannot replicate every finish on every door. Please choose your finish by looking at our Finish Samples
We need the following pictures: The main picture (see fig. #1 above) should be taken from 10 to 12 feet away from the fireplace with the opening as square as possible, not skewed or distorted. We want to see the entire fireplace, not just the opening. So if the fireplace goes floor to ceiling, stand back far enough so we can see the whole thing. It is usually best to get down on one knee so that your viewer is about the same height as the top of the fireplace opening. Standing up to take this picture will almost always make it look distorted. Take 4 more pictures as shown below: a closeup of the opening (fig. 2), top left corner (fig. 3), bottom left corner (fig. 4) and a shot of the damper or flue (fig. 5). If you have a prefabricated zero clearance fireplace (ZC), take a picture of the label in side the fireplace (fig. 6) and make sure we can read it. Please refer to project #10093 for a good example of the kinds of pictures we want to see for prefab fireplaces.
Take Good Pictures: Above is an example of a fireplace with the pictures we want to see. Be sure to remove all obstructions from in front of the fireplace opening including your fireplace screen, if you have one. It is important that you adjust your camera to the highest resolution because we need pictures that are at least 1800 pixels wide. The standard resolution for some camera phones is only 640 x 480, so be sure to increase it to the maximum quality. Also, please take the main picture in landscape mode (wider than tall). If you already have glass doors, take some pictures with the doors opened and closed.
Example Of This Service - (See Actual Project)
3 Mock-up Limit: We are willing to create 3 requested mock-ups at no charge. We may include complementary mock-ups at our discretion if we wish to include any doors that you have not requested. If you want us to create additional mock-ups, we require a $50 non-refundable deposit for an additional 7 mock-ups. Your deposit will applied to your purchase if you order a door.
Rectangles Only: Currently, we provide the mock-up feature for rectangular fireplaces only, but sometimes we are able to do other shapes...it just depends on the photo you send and the doors we have pictures of. Keep in mind that it is difficult to turn a rectangle into an arch when it comes to computer graphics, so this is a limitation. Regardless of the shape of your fireplace, you will still want to email us your pictures so that our experts will know exactly what you have and be able to help you.
Privacy Note: Your privacy is very important to us, so we will never divulge your email address to any entity outside of our company. However, your picture may be viewable by other visitors to our website, so please do not show anything in the photograph that you do not want to be visible publicly. We will not associate your name or any information about you with your picture aside from any description you might provide. By submitting this form and including a picture, you are giving us all rights to use your photo in any manner we see fit.
