The Majestic brand is owned by CFM Corporation, a Canadian company based in Mississauga, Ontario. The company has several different manufacturing facilities based in the US and Canada. CFM also owns several additional brands: Vermont Castings, Temco, Dutch West, Century Hearth, and The Great Outdoors. This article will focus on the Majestic fireplace brand for builders.
The majestic fireplace brand originated back in the 1950's with the company's first factory-built fireplace. The majestic brand is aimed at the new home construction marketplace and is quite popular among builders. The Majestic brand is also a well known commodity for homeowners as well and is well-respected.
The Majestic brand offers a good selection of hearth products. The product choices are similar to the Vermont Castings Product offerings. These offerings contain natural vent, direct vent, and vent free gas fireplaces. There are electric and wood fireplaces along with stoves for gas, wood, coal, and electric fuel types. The brand also offers fireplace inserts, mantles, cabinets and gas logs. Majestic also makes an outdoor fireplace. Most of these fireplaces are made for the new home construction industry.
The warranty for Majestic fireplace products is relatively standard. The company warrants that most products will be free of material defects for one year. On key components there is a limited lifetime warranty. On wearable products, there is a three year warranty for wear. The exact warranty depends on the type of product purchased. Always check with CFM to obtain the exact warranty details for the correct product.
CFM's dealer network is vast. With the Majestic line, most builders use professionals to install the fireplace into the new home. For a warranty problem, if the fireplace is under warranty, it can make sense to contact the builder first. The CFM dealer network extends to almost all areas of the US and it should not be difficult to find a dealer that carries Majestic or Vermont Castings products.
