Our business model is to complement your Internet research with our website so that you can include our product offering in your evaluation. If you decide to consider purchasing one of our products, we offer a level of personalized one-on-one attention not available to you through Internet sales. You may come to our showroom for an expert consultation, and see examples of the fireplaces that we sell.
Fireplace products are technical as well as aesthetic products: the consumer must consider numerous factors. We help you with your purchase decision, including analyzing your physical site as to which products are technically feasible. Fireplaces have site specific constraints, requirements and technical knowledge related to building codes, safety standards, as well as physical fit and venting constraints of your particular space.
Every one of us here at Kidd Fireplace HATES “hard sell” tactics, and therefore we practice “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you”. Our sales strategy is to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.We respect our Customer: we treat you as a peer with whom we are consulting and we act with integrity.
We install the Fireplaces purchased from us. Our employees are exemplary in their technical knowledge of gas, pellet, and wood hearth systems, and in their knowledge of construction and safety standards. They are well-trained and understand the technical requirements for a safe and well-structured installation.
We service all fireplaces that we sell, personally honoring all warranties. In addition, we have a Fireplace Service Department that services almost every brand of fireplace in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our Fireplace Service has a 30 days warranty.

Kidd came out to my home, arriving within the designated time window they gave me, and fixed my fireplace. They were able to give me the part under warranty, and I only had to play for labor. Score! The technician was very clean and friendly. On time. Fair price. Clean. Friendly. What else do you want for a service call?
Highly recommend this Family owned business that pays attention to detail. Provided repair as well as creative design and remodeling of my old fireplace. Both Randy and Jason did excellent, professional work and were a pleasure to work with. Susan kept me updated and arranged work based on my schedule. My Fireplace is beautiful!
Kevin worked with me on 3 different fireplaces which an architect had spec’d. The architect hadn’t researched any properly. All were issues from the start and Kevin was incredibly helpful. He presented numerous options to try and make things work. All the people there were professional and wonderful to work with. Thank you!
