Offering a full range of fireplaces, Vacaville’s Gallery of Fireplaces can almost surely meet any customer’s needs. ”I thought it was a pretty nice honor,” co-owner Dennis Gregerson said of being chosen by Daily Republic readers. Along with selling new fireplaces and mantels, Gallery of Fireplaces can help transform your home. ”We pride ourselves in fireplace makeovers. We offer full makeovers, mantels and fireplaces,” Gregerson said. Gregerson and co-owner Steve Healer also help families with “retrofitting inefficient wood-burning fireplaces into efficient gas-burning fireplaces. That allows the customer to zone heat a room where they spend time, and then they’re not subject to (Spare the Air) days, which is an ongoing issue for people with wood-burning fireplaces,” Gregerson said. The mantels and other services help create a focal point in a room, and that’s a big part of the business. ”A fireplace is a natural gathering place for family and friends,” Gregerson said. Entering its ninth year in Vacaville, Gallery of Fireplaces is all about meeting the customer’s needs. The store sells wood, gas and electric fireplaces and it also provides service plans for maintaining your fireplace.
