About Us

Quality Products. Excellent Service. Since 1953

Welcome to Blaze Fireplaces

Blaze is a family owned and operated, full service contractor and supplier specializing in fireplaces. We have been serving homeowners, builders, architects, designers, and dealers in all of Northern California since 1953. We’re proud to be the oldest and most respected supplier in Northern California. We take pride in adhering to only the highest standards in the products and services we provide. It is our firm commitment to meeting our customers’ needs and providing exceptional service that has enabled us to achieve our best in class reputation.

For more than 65 years, we have created ambiance and gathering points for countless homes and families around the Bay Area. Our evolution has seen it all, from the bygone brick fireplace and chimney to today’s highly efficient, streamlined appliances. Then or now, we aim to capture the same practical, timeless, and comfortable feeling around the fireplace. To us, realizing your vision for your home is rooted in this heritage of the local neighborhood hearth shop, laying one brick at a time – just reinterpreted for life today.

Founded in 1953 in San Francisco, Blaze remains the Bay Area’s hearth shop. In an industry that has grown and changed drastically in just the last 10 years, longtime owner – Bruce Weitzman has kept pace where others couldn’t and where many still fall behind. Fireplaces today are not built from the same basic design anymore.
