We Can Help With All Types of Fireplace Glass
Different types of glass may be used in glass fireplaces. Here is a quick list of the most common types:
- Thermal window glass replacement — made up of multiple panes of energy-efficient glass to better maintain even temperatures so your fire doesn’t overheat your room.
- Insulated glass windows — provides the same benefits of multi-pane thermal glass with a single glass pane, very energy efficient
- Tempered glass — more affordable and durable, most common type of glass used in fireplaces
- Ceramic glass — better able to withstand dramatic changes in temperature caused by fireplaces, best for wood stoves where the glass is closer to the fire
If your fireplace uses any of these materials, we have a large inventory of replacement glass ready to help. We also have tons of experience repairing small cracks or chips so they’re as good as new.
Have a Custom Fireplace? Ask About Our Custom Cut Fireplace Glass
Some fireplaces are made with custom designs or dimensions to achieve a truly unique aesthetic. Finding a fireplace glass replacement can be challenging enough, but with a custom fireplace, it’s even worse. Most manufacturers don’t sell replacement glass, or if they do, they might have stopped selling the fireplace or wood stove that you bought years ago.
If we don’t have any replacement that suits your fireplace, we can custom cut a replacement for you at our shop in Victoria. We can cut the exact type of glass to whatever size, shape, and dimensions you used in your custom-designed fireplace.

Customer service is our priority, and we will answer any questions you have about fireplace door glass or other custom glass needs.
Fireplace Glass FAQs
What is the best material for fireplace or wood stove glass?
That will depend on the exact design and whether you purchased or had one custom-built. Tempered glass is more common for fireplaces, but can only withstand temperatures below 500 F. That’s fine if your glass is set far enough away from the fire to avoid overheating, which is how most common fireplaces are designed. However, with a wood stove or any alternatively designed fireplace, it is better to use ceramic glass that is suited to over 1200 F.
I have a custom glass design for my fireplace, can you still help?
Yes, we can! We have experience working on all kinds of residential glass designs in the Victoria and Langford areas. We’ve repaired, replaced, and installed custom glass patterns, custom shapes, and/or unusual dimensions for over two decades. Ask us how we can help!
Can you fix or replace a different type of fireplace glass?
While tempered or ceramic glass is more commonly used in fireplaces, they are by no means the only type of glass you might want. If you have a specific type, thickness, or tinted glass you want in your fireplace, contact us with the details! We’ll tell you how we can help.
