Why Consider a GFRG Fireplace?

Fireplaces have traditionally been crafted out of materials like granite, marble, or brick. But there are several advantages to choosing GFRG instead. Some of these advantages include:

  • Fireproof and Long Lasting – Critical for any type of design, GFRG is fireproof and not considered a risk for catching fire no matter how much heat or flames they’re exposed to. They’re also designed to last, with each surround crafted for decades and built with outstanding durability.
  • Lightweight and Easy to Install – Installation of these GFRG fireplace designs is much easier, as the material is lightweight and can come as a single piece. Although it is always a good idea to consult with a professional, many of these fireplaces are light enough that installation could be completed as a DIY project, at roughly 2 to 4 pounds per square foot depending on thickness.
  • Fully Customizable – Marble, brick, and other materials have limitations in their designs. Some chip if you try to chisel at them. Others are limited specific shapes. GFRG can be crafted into essentially any design that you can imagine flawlessly, making your fireplace something available nowhere else.

Also, if you’re designing multiple fireplaces for a multifamily property, hotel, or something else, the molds can be used over and over again, ensuring a consistent look through each one.
