Converting to FireGlass Provides a Clean Burn and More Heat Than Fake Logs

Mike Sherk filled his fireplace with lots of Starfire Base Glass and accented it with Roma Red Topper, Saffron Topper and Red Brown Toppers and Toppings

The Fireplace below was a combination of Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass with a sprinkling of Starfire Base Glass.

The following fireplace had been filled with pebbles, unfortunately this is not a wise option, as they start to pop when they get too hot.  So after a few close calls we got a call and replaced the white stones with some Chunky Clear.

Ty Havas didn't want an ordinary Propane pan for his fireplace.  He wanted a pan that would be more than functional.  So after some sketches and discussions we began making a cardboard mock up.

Ty Havas Ty Havas

He would ultimately receive a Stainless Steel pan with angled legs and a 2 inch depth.  Here the cardboard mock-up along with his fireplace measurements (which you can see denoted on the cardboard piece below the mock-up) assure that we attain the correct size and appropriate design.

Ty Havas Ty Havas

The fireplace is emptied out and it becomes apparent that its in dire need of a fresh coat of paint.  And since the custom pan was built with legs, the fireplace floor will be left visible and as a result fresh tile will be added to the hearth.

custom fireplace pan Ty Havas

The fireplace re-design is complete with two custom reflective sterling silver panels on either side of the pan to give the illusion of the fireplace being larger.

Ty Havas Ty Havas

The stainless steel pan is filled 1/4" Bronze Base Glass, 1/4" Bronze Reflective Base Glass, Copper Ruby Red Topper, Yellowish Opal Orange Topper, and Red Brown Topper and a few Classic Diamonds.

A wonderful transformation.

This is Brian Pokrzywa's fireplace.  He cleared it out and dry-cleaned with a steel brush. getting it ready for a fresh coat of high-heat fireplace paint.  Thank you Brian for sending us your photos; helps all our customers better understand the easy self installation process.  

Brian Pokrzywa

Brian prepared the area around the fireplace, to assure no fireplace paint would get into any unwanted areas.  He then sprayed the inside with a matte black paint

He then laid a bed of regular playground sand from his local home department and placed his indoor fireplace burner above it before pouring Gray Base Glass and Pyrite Gray Base Glass FireGlass.

Our customers Michael and Linda Shimokaji sent us these photos of their fireplace as it was before.  In the 1st photo on the left we see a combination of fake logs with some FireFlass.  The whole thing was a mess though, a messy paint job, the wrong burner and burnt glass!

.Michael and Linda Shimokaji Michael and Linda Shimokaji

You'll notice that their original burner was a single pipe. So we definitely swapped it out for a double 18" Steel burner to assure a nice flame pattern.

Michael and Linda Shimokaji Michael and Linda Shimokaji

Complete with Bronze Base Glass, Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass and a few subtle hints of Blue Toppers and Red Orange Toppers.

Michael and Linda Shimokaji

This fireplace was located in the Family room and again we ran into similar problems as those we found in the living room fireplace. So we went to work on rectifying the same issues.

Michael and Linda Shimokaji Michael and Linda Shimokaji

Linda and Michael choose the same FireGlass colors for their family room fireplace as well.

Thanks to Jay Arthur for sending us his photos.  Jay used Starfire Base Glass and 2 lbs of Gold Base Glass as a Topper. Great job Jay!

These photos showcase how easy it is to install a glass and fire fireplace.  The installation utilizes our 2" method which saves you 1/3 the cost of the glass! Don't be fooled by the antics of some installers.    After the fireplace has been cleaned and is now ready for paint. We have installed the burner which is as easy as hooking up a garden hose.   This is a little hard to see but we have 2" of crushed lava rock under the pan burner which is actually your new base.   We now have pulled the burner to the top surface and covered the lava rock with sand to expose the burner. We then adjusted the flame pattern by turning the burners to obtain our flame direction.

This modern fireplace design comes to us from Andre Silva in Red Hill.  This particular fireplace burned natural gas; so it was designed without a burner pan.  However, fireplaces that use propane will NEED a pan. These photos showcase Starfire Base Glass fire glass and we added one of our custom made aluminum Surround with a special frosted glass.
