The Marco fireplace company is out of business. However, you can still purchase fireplace doors, blowers, gas logs, and paint kits for Marco fireplaces. Parts and services are still available from other parties. Have an outdated Marco fireplace? Removing the old fireplace and installing a new one is an option, but it’s expensive and usually unnecessary. Consider updating your old fireplace instead.
Marco Fireplace Doors
Even though Marco is out of businesses, Brick-Anew.com still makes fireplace doors for Marco fireplaces. These doors are especially helpful in the winter but save energy year round as well. Have you ever closed your damper right after your fire has gone out and woken up to a smoky room? Fireplace doors are designed so you can close them as soon as the fire has gone out. You can keep the damper open to let smoke out but keep the doors closed to keep warm air in. You’ll wake up to a warm, smoke-free room the next day.
Even during the hotter months, Marco fireplace glass doors insulate the fireplace by providing a dead air space between the closed damper and closed fireplace glass doors. Brick-Anew uses tempered glass on their doors. For more information about the differences between tempered and ceramic glass, click here.
Fireplace doors are an easy way to update your outdated fireplace. They add efficiency, style, and safety. While burning, the open doors provide a “shield” on either side of the firebox. This can prevent accidents with rowdy pets and kids. You can close the doors once the fire has died down to keep embers and ash in the firebox. Plus, fireplace doors are super easy to install. If you can hang a picture frame, you can put fireplace doors on your fireplace. The instructions are simple and the process can be done with an electric drill, drill bits, and a Phillips screwdriver.
Brick-Anew is our choice for fireplace doors since they offer a lifetime guarantee on the glass. They also offer free glass tinting, free shipping, a full swing door upgrade, and a no-hassle satisfaction guarantee. You might choose tinted glass for wood-burning fireplaces to hid the ashes and mess once the fire has gone out. The full swing door option is a little more money, but they can be removed for easier cleaning.
Already have a frame but missing the doors? You can buy replacement doors to go into your frame. Your frame must have tracks, which are pretty standard for fireplace door frames and provide a channel for the fireplace doors to slide into. The tracks must also have a clip to hold the glass doors in place. If your frame doesn’t have these specifications, you’ll want to purchase new doors.
Another way to update an old fireplace is by using gas logs. Gas logs can be beautifully painted to look just like wood, and they streamline the burning process. There’s no waiting for a fire to start or die out; there’s no clean up. Just turn on the gas, and you’ll have a beautiful fire; turn off the gas, and the fire goes out.
So even though Marco itself has gone out of business, you can easily and affordably update that Marco to create a beautiful and safe fireplace.
