Custom Fireplace Surrounds
Getting a Custom Surround requires:
- Photos of the area it's to be installed in
- And ideally a cardboard mock-up of what you want the surround to look like
Keep in the Mind While Constructing The Cardboard-Mock up the Following:
- How Thick or Thin do you want the frame to be?
- Do you want some form of glass within the interior frame of the surround?
- What type of metal? Steel. Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper?
- And lastly what sort of finish do you want the metal to have?
Average cost for 48" wide simple standard surround:
- Aluminum $950
- Stainless Steel $1900
Aluminum up to 48" wide = $950.00
From 48" to 60" wide = 1350.00
Stainless Steel up to 48" wide = $1900.00, over 48" = $2700.00
90 degree surrounds up to 30” x 48” x 36” tall = 1350.00
Stainless steel 90 degree surrounds up to 30” x 48” x 36” tall = 2700.00, depending on the actual required detail.
Free Form Surrounds to your imagination!
Plus shipping and crating. Your surround pricing will depend on what is needed to be built.
We typically use Aluminum because stainless steel is susceptible to heat and will and can warp.

Below a long narrow fireplace in Palm Springs looks rather sparse without one of our custom fireplace surrounds.
Below the cardboard mock-up is mounted giving the customer and us a strong working idea of what it will look like and equally assure the customer of its design.
Once the details are hammered out, the stainless steel surround is produced and mounted on the wall. Along with some Gray Base Glass, Starfire Base Glass and Pyrite Base Glass FireGlass.
Beautiful room completed with a beautiful surround.
Terry and Holly Utley had a direct vent fireplace, and as usual they were told that they couldn't convert to FireGlass. So we had to go and do the impossible again modify the system to work with FireGlass.
We then begin with the fireplace surround install, sadly though even with the surround in place the electronics are still exposed, so we had to add a few more pieces to add to assure a clean, finished look.
Now that's much better.
The fireplace is complete with some of our Starfire Base Glass and Cobalt Toppers. Turned out great, thanks ladies.
CHRIS TOOLEY CONVERSION
Our client Rich Guerra put us to the test with this custom fireplace surround, that went above and beyond the call of duty. As you see here the first Surround served as the base for the stone encasing - which will later demonstrate itself as very ingenious/fast/hassle free solution to getting a new fireplace design.
Here is fireplace before the 1st Surround was installed with the old burner and grill removed.
We apply a fresh coat Black fireplace paint and we sit and watch paint dry...
Look closely as you could miss it, but the first surround has been installed with the rock finish. We then pour some crushed lava rock as filler with Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass over a double 24" indoor fireplace burner.
Now the 2nd Surround is installed, along with one 8" Dark Brown FireBall and two 6" Red FireBalls.
The 2nd Surround was Steel construction with a Dark Bronze powder coat and frosted glass inlay. Overall the installation of the Surround gave the fireplace an extra depth of 6 inches.
A radical transformation which only took 40 minutes to complete and without all the mess and drama of reconstructing your fireplace.
Yet to come is a few pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper and interior lights to spotlight the fireplace when its not burning.
One of our largest custom surrounds, for a surprisingly small fireplace. This brushed Aluminum Surround had an overall of 55" x 44" with a double beveled edge, black glass between the Aluminum frames, and interior frame of frosted glass.
Here's what we walked into.
Created in two pieces the inner frame was the last piece to be mounted.
Here are some great Before pictures from our customer Abbe Fenimore. Sending high quality digital camera photos help us "be there", without the cost to you for us being there.
A short while later, Abbe had his tile replaced before installing his custom surround. Further, you can see the cardboard mock-up on the right hand-side picture. Having done this Abbe is able to really determine his preferred surround size / look / feel, before it actually goes into construction. NOTE* Custom work cannot be returned.
Here the brushed aluminum surround is at last installed along with some Clear Base Glass FireGlass and a double 18" inch steel fireplace burner.
Everything turned out beautifully, Abbe your living room turned out amazing!
These photos come to us from our customer Robert LeWinter, who got the complete Moderustic package. Starting with a a fresh coat of Metallic Charcoal fireplace paint, Starfire Base Glass FireGlass and a one of a kind custom Surround.
Since Robert purchased a light colored FireGlass (Starfire Base Glass) he used a playground sand as base before placing his steel fireplace burner on top of the sand.
The fireplace was completed with installation of his custom Aluminum Surround adorning the fireplace.
Thanks for the great pictures Robert, fireplace turned out great!
This 3 sided Surround demonstrates the flexibility of custom work. Traditionally designed with four sides, this particular fireplace clearly is better suited with only 3 panels.
Sand base with a steel 24" fireplace burner atop providing some great flames.
The Surround was all steel construction, powdered coated gray, with a 2 inch frosted clear glass inside edge.
These pictures come to us from our customer in Huntington Beach CA. They not only converted their fireplace to burn FireGlass but ordered a large custom Aluminum Surround. In the first photo you can see the fireplace freshly painted and emptied ready for FireGlass.
Here the FireGlass and new natural gas burner has been installed. With the proceeding picture showing the clients cardboard mock-up; the mock-up is a great way to gauge the size / shape of the surround before producing it. Remember custom work cannot be returned.
The aluminum surround was brushed horizontally with an 1 1/2" frosted glass inside edge. Inside the fireplace we see Black Base Glass and Black Reflective Base Glass FireGlass.
Jeff Walls Fireplace Upgrade
There were a lot of ideas surrounding what Jeff Wall's fireplace would become...and when we arrived we found a lot of beer and "interesting" wood frame around the fireplace. As well as the typical dirty mess from burning logs.
After some discussion though it was decided that it wasn't the best direction to go. And the frame had to come off - especially if the custom surround was to be installed properly.
So once we cleared out the $350 worth of lumber, we went to getting the area prepared for the custom fireplace surround, a fresh coat of fireplace paint, a new indoor fireplace burner, FireGlass and a few FireBalls.
With the fireplace painted, a bed of playground sand in place and the new fireplace burner installed we are ready for the finishing touches.
Were still waiting for Jeff to send us his evening photos of the the fireplace completed. But here you can see how beautiful everything works together.
Kathy K. had placed her fireplace burner too far back, and as a result got a lot of ugly sooting on her wall.
So when started to work with her on her new Custom Surround we explained that her fireplace burner should be closer to the front so to avoid this again.
To ensure an accurate fit and design we guided Kathy on how to build an inexpensive cardboard mock-up.
The taped area represents the frosted glass and the cardboard represents what will be the brushed aluminum.
This gives both the client and us, a good general idea of what to build and what it will ultimately look like.
And here is the finished piece installed, freshly re-painted and burner installed in the right position :)
This beautiful copper fireplace Surround was built for Stacey in Laguna Niguel, CA. The fireplace surround looked great against the faux painted walls. The FireGlass used was Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass.
She requested a distressed unfinished look to the copper Surround. You can see here the interior rough edges being welded and polished to achieve that distress finish.
And here are a few more pictures of the completed job in her beautiful room.
These pictures were sent to use from our customer in Palm Springs CA. It's a perfect example of the type of FireGlass that really gets a face-lift from having a surround. The custom fireplace surround was designed specifically to our customers measurements and desired look. In this case our customer requested a brushed finished with clear glass edging.
And here is the surround installed. And in case your curious the FireGlass installed was Starfire Base Glass and the interior was painted with ivory white stove paint.
This custom fireplace surround has 4" sides and 3" top and bottom. Every fireplace is a little bit different as we recommend a cardboard template so you can get a preview of what it will look like before hand. It just looked so good, we posted all photos!
The next few pictures were sent to us by Marsha Dashefsky from Palm Springs, CA. Marsha wanted a custom floor-to-ceiling brushed aluminum fireplace surround.
Well, she got it!
The fireplace has 1/4" Clear Base Glass and then we added 1/2" Clear Base Glass and 1/2" Starfire Base Glass. The aluminum can take on a soft or brilliant looks depending on the lighting. The next several pictures are of and with the blinds open.
Another Brushed Aluminum fireplace surround with an inside frame of clear glass.
The next few pictures are from Steve Clendenen in Florida. Propane fireplace (burner pan next). He started with a basic cardboard mock up (very important) to get a preview. Here we go from start to end. we will later post the fireplace completed with the propane burner and glass installed.
Yuk, yuk and YUK!
I didn't particularly like the cardboard. we use full size sheets, but I guess it worked.
Notice the corner post is missing? There are a few rules to remove these.
Do you see the difference? We create nice and wonderful looking fireplaces for you (and the world). We really enjoy building these custom fireplace surrounds.
