What's Different About Custom Fireplaces & More?




What's different about Custom Fireplaces & More can be neatly summed up in just one word... PEOPLE! There are certainly many sources of hearth products these days, and like anything, quality ranges from high to low. However, even the highest quality products may not serve you well with beauty, safety and suitability for your needs that you expect and deserve, if they are chosen without full knowledge of the range of quality compared to other products in the same class and the various advantages and disadvantages. Even if you select a high quality product, should you someday need service, the warranty is only as good as the dealer who backs it. A dealer is only as good as the skills, experience, and integrity of its owners and employees.

So, when you want to be confident that you'll have all your questions answered accurately, and you'll be fully informed of all the pros and cons concerning a particular model before you buy, choose Custom Fireplaces as your fireplace supplier.


Have you ever been frustrated by a salesperson who lacks sufficient product knowledge or doesn't seem to care about taking the time or effort to explain the details you need to know to make the right choice? Who hasn't? When it comes to choosing a fireplace, you can hardly afford not to be well informed! When you visit Custom Fireplaces, you'll be refreshed by our in-depth knowledge of our products, and our educational, patient and caring approach to guiding you through the selection of the right hearth product or gas grill. We value all your questions. We want you, our customer, to be able to confidently choose the best fireplace, stove, gas log, or gas grill for your family's lifestyle.

Of course you expect a saleperson to tell you about the advantages to a particular product. But what may seem to be an advantage for one person can be a disadvantage for another! How many places have you shopped where you are frankly informed of any possible disadvantages for the use and goal you have in mind? WE WILL! WHY? We want you to be pleased with your purchase and with your experience with our company for years to come. We want you as our customer for life!
