Frequently Asked QUESTIONS

FAQ

There are a lot of different kinds of pellets, which are best?

Pellets, like conventional wood, differ in variety and some wood species perform better than others. It has been our experience that burning premium grade pellets, like fir, provide for more heat, less ash and less sooting due to moisture content. Though they tend to be more expensive they will most likely save you money in the long run as you will require less fuel and maintenance

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.
