Fireplace Doors Guide

Outside Fireplace Doors

Wednesday, May 20, 2009 Posted by Stephanie H.

Your indoor fireplace is not the only one that needs a set of fireplace doors. It’s important to remember that if you have an outdoor fireplace – they need them too! Just like indoor fireplace doors, outside fireplace doors are available in both bi-fold and cabinet styles.

When getting ready to purchase your outside fireplace door, it’s imperative that you choose the best door for you. Only certain colors and materials will hold up well against Mother Nature, and you want to make sure that your outside fireplace door will last you for an extended time.

Stainless steel doors are a bit pricier, but will hold up the best in all types of weather. This material holds up better than any other outside fireplace doors on the market. There are also doors that have a powder coat finish. This finish helps to retain the color of the door – however – darker doors are still likely to fade. There are other finishes available for an outside fireplace door, but the powder coat finish also comes highly recommended.

For most indoor fireplaces, you will want to have a fireplace screen. However, in your outside fireplace door you will not. Fireplace screens that are in an outside fireplace door are subject to rusting  due to weather. Over the years outdoor fireplaces have become increasingly popular, and having a fireplace door will help to  complete and refine the look of your fireplace!
