It’s almost time to snuggle up in front of a fire again, which means to get fireplace details handled. Yes, this is not the sexiest of topic but …it’s best to have a safe fireplace. It starts with a fireplace screen – just in case a log rolls the wrong way just after you ran our of the room to get the phone….Murphy’s Law.
There are many fireplace screens and doors. Some are hung on a track – we all know how those jam. Others are separate and unattached. Lifting them aside to attend to the fire is cumbersome.
Let my previous 1930 built home provide the answer: A built-in fireplace screen that simply rolls up and out of the way like a window shade. Simple divine!
After interviewing countless chimney sweeps and lot’s of research online I found one – only one! – company in Brooklyn NY that makes them- the Wm H Jackson Company. They are custom made and expensive….but after having had one I say: treat yourself and your family to a built in fireplace screen!
