[toggle title=”Your finishes are unique; how durable are they?” open=”no”]Most of our finishes will last many years as long as care is taken in their use. Be careful not to build extremely hot or “flash” fires as they can impact the toughest of finishes. No corrosive cleaners or agents to clean rock, etc., during construction should be used either. Ironhaus finishes are “living” finishes made like the finishes on bronze statues and they may age gracefully over time. This actually creates more character and is consistent with the ambiance of our fireplace products.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”Does Ironhaus have a dealer network or installer network so my fireplace is safely and correctly installed?” open=”no”]Your Ironhaus fireplace should be professionally installed by a certified technician to ensure its safety and proper performance.

[toggle title=”I have heard that new gas fireplaces have a mesh panel over the glass because of past safety issues,especially with kids. We have an existing gas fireplace. What should we do?” open=”no”]Its true that manufacturers of gas fireplaces are required now by law to include a safety screen on any gas fireplace made after Feb. 2015. Your existing fireplace does not have a mandate upon it so its up to you to make it safer if that’s a concern for you. We have many applications to address this situation. Contact us for details.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”What is the difference between an insert and a fireplace?” open=”no”]A Fireplace Insert is designed to be installed into an existing masonry fireplace. A fireplace is designed to be installed into new construction (framing).[/toggle]

[toggle title=”What is the benefit of a metal mantle vs a wood one?” open=”no”]Metal mantles are not combustible so they can be closer to the fireplace opening. This might help with the placement of a large screen TV above, and it will certainly protect a TV , artwork, etc better from the high heat of the fireplace.[/toggle]

[toggle title=”We are building a home and just realized we need fireplace doors, but the masons are scheduled right away. What can we do?” open=”no”]We have a metal template, called a masons form, that we can usually build within a day or two. This form will allow you to have the time to decide on the details of your door and for us to build it for you, while the masons can continue working.[/toggle]
