FAQ

Do I need a building permit when installing a wood stove?

The local authority having jurisdiction, also known as the building inspector, has indicated that all wood-fired appliance installations require a building permit. This ensures the installation meets local building codes and also allows for a WETT inspection if required by your insurance carrier.

What is the difference between Acrylic and Gelcoat fiberglass?

Acrylic is a non-porous, solid surface material and retains a high gloss finish better than other material. It is easy to clean, withstands constant use and will last for many years. It will not fade over time as the color is the same all the way through the material an due to the process in which is is manufactured, offers a greater variety of styles. Gelcoat fiberglass, on the other hand, will fade and the Gelcoating will rub off over time exposing the porous fiberglass. Once exposed these pores can harbor bacteria, mold and mildew which can then begin to break down the product. While Gelcoat costs less, it will not last as long as Acrylic and may therefore not provide the value over time that an Acrylic product does.
