Gas fireplace glass repair

I have a 12 yr old property and it seems that the glass shattered/spiderwebbed. It is still in place, but cracks through it.

I realized repairing this is completely out of my league, and the property is about 70 miles from where I live.

At this point, I think I'm stuck and need to call a professional. (which is contrary to the DoItYourself title)

But I have no idea who to call.? I tried a local fireplace guy and he seemed lost.

Any suggestions?

A good glass shop can probably help you.

Any idea how to remove the glass? I see I can now just buy replacement glass.

I just am lost how to remove the previous glass. It is a Heat & Glo 6000

Oh, is this a direct vent gas fireplace?

You can buy replacement glass from a dealer by supplying the make, model and serial number of the fireplace, which is on the rating plate usually found in the bottom compartment of the fireplace.

Yes it is. My tenant just informed me that he is able to remove the glass. (hopefully with minimal damage.) I found a website which can send me a new piece of glass.

It feels weird to do this remotely, since I cant see it. But I have to hope it works out ok.

I would recommend you buy the part specified by the manufacturer. That way the probability that you will be getting the right stuff is high.

The glass isn't actually glass it's a ceramic called Robax. the spidering is normal and inevitable. A local glass shop should have it and you can take in the old stuff as template.
