Firebox Paint

A Fireplace with no firebox paint can look barren.

With the economy in the shape its in, we are always looking for ways to improve your fireplace, while saving money as well. A great quick fix could be to just paint the inside of your fireplace with a black firebox paint. This immediately transforms the interior of your fireplace from an old ashen look to a fresh clean black.
Any paint used to paint a firebox must meet strict safety and environmental standards. Regular fireplace paint doesn’t quite cut it when you’re talking about temperatures as high as 700 degrees Fahrenheit. Intense temperatures call for a specially designed firebox paint that won’t crack, peel or, worse, emit harmful chemicals into the living area.

Interior fireplace paint should always meet the following criteria:

• Withstand temperatures up to 1200 degrees
• Contain a silicone protectant
• Rust-resistant
• Won’t scratch

Amongst other changes, this fireplace now looks
great with its new coat of firebox paint.

Firebox paint is not expensive, and is as easy to apply as any other paint. You may have to put a little more prep time into getting the firebox cleaned, but the end results of using the right interior fireplace paint greatly outweigh the efforts.
