Good morning, I have just found your website and I’m in need of some assistance in trying to find a fireplace door for my current remodel. We have a masonry fireplace with large pieces of flat stone that we wanted to cover. Our contractor used steel studs and built out the front covering with hardy backer. We are interested in using stack stone but realize that an overlapping door might not look right based on the fact that the stack stone can be different thicknesses. I was wondering if I could use an inside mount door and then have the stack stone either stop at the opening or return to the face of the door. Another possibility would be an overlapping door with a wide lip so that stack stone could butt up to it. I will include pics of the fireplace but the rough opening is width=36, height=30.5 inches. I’m interested in a Matte black 2 door fireplace. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
We have created mockups showing 3 different ways this project can be handled. We took the liberty of adding some stacked stone and wood flooring to give the mockups a more finished look.

Note: These mock-ups are not to scale and are meant to help you choose the model of your screen or door, not the finish. Although we may create a general representation of black, iron, bronze, gold and silver tones, you must choose your finish from our samples using the links below. Ask your project manager which samples apply to the items in your project.
Option #: Legend Twin Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black. This option shows an inside fit with a frame wide enough to cover the exposed inner hearth that is raised.
Option #: Legend Twin Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black. This option shows an inside fit with stacked stone covering the face of the inner hearth, so the door frame would just overlap the hearth bricks slightly and the stone needed to cover the bricks would be installed afterwards.
Option #: Craftsman Fireplace Door in Forged Iron. This door is made just like the above option, but is a bit more sophisticated in the look. We also show it with bifolding doors, but it can be made as twin doors.

Mesh & Insulation Options
The Mesh options are behind the glass so you can burn the fire with the doors open and still have spark protection. Great for real wood or gas logs since most gas long manufacturers insist that you have a screen in front of the logs when they are burning. Mesh panel doors are the most popular and are best for when there are toddlers present because they will not open backwards whereas the mesh screens are easily pushed in. Insulation goes between the back of the frame and the fireplace facing, providing a better seal.
Black Mesh Curtains - These slide back and forth on a rod behind the glass
Gate Mesh Doors - These are separate doors behind the glass that have a flat wire mesh and a black frame.
Insulation: Provides a better seal between the fireplace face and the door frame.
