The Cozy Dog Fireplace Shoppe

Keep Warm in Style

Although spring promises to arrive in several weeks, there’s still some cold weather ahead of us. Consider warming things up with a new fireplace this season. If you need a professional opinion, The Cozy Dog Fireplace Shoppe is the place to go. Owner, Lisa Moskal is one of very few female owners in the fireplace industry and brings her own style and flair to a traditionally male trade.

“I wanted to give a woman’s touch to a man’s industry,” says Lisa. “I put my own spin on the business by educating myself and earning the required certifications. I launched it myself and enjoy the wide array of people I work with…from architects to designers and homeowners. I like the combination of design and technicality that makes a fireplace beautiful and functional.”

Springtime generally kicks off home renovation season. Homeowners who are adding on a family room, or planning an overhaul of nearly any room in the house will want to consider the benefits of adding a fireplace.

Fireplaces are one of the most sought-after features for home buyers and can increase a home’s value by as much as 6-8%. They not only provide beauty and atmosphere but also warmth in the case of a power outage.

Knowing what type of fireplace is right for you is Lisa’s specialty. Stop in their showroom in Rochelle Park and, with Lisa’s guidance, determine whether woodburning, gas, or electric is best for your home. The Cozy Dog offers a selection of pellet stoves as well.

Many homeowners are opting to convert existing wood-burning fireplaces to gas, which can be more environmentally friendly and convenient to operate. It gives the effect of wood-burning logs with the convenience of a remote control.  Lisa can also advise you on installing a wood insert, which allows you to enjoy the rustic ambiance of a wood fire with increased warmth and efficiency. Electric fireplaces offer the same cozy atmosphere but only require an electrical outlet to provide the natural beauty of a hearth.

The Cozy Dog Fireplace Shoppe does it all from A-Z, says Lisa. We manage the full build and installation of your fireplace, including refacing, adding custom wood, cast stone, or Turkish marble mantles, and hearths.

Lisa’s experience and unique perspective help homeowners all over Bergen County know what type of fireplace is right for their lifestyle.

Whether you are looking to install a new fireplace or update an existing one, Lisa and her team will make your experience pleasant and leave you feeling warm and fuzzy!.
