To determine the options available,
we start with a free site survey on your property.
This will provide information such as:
The scope of work required
Recommended heat output of the stove
Access to roofs
Location of chimney for freestanding stoves
From simple stove replacements to bespoke turn-key installations.
We take pride in offering the complete package from initial design to fitting the stove itself and all associated building work.
We have experience in the building trade and have been trained by the Scottish Lime Centre to deal with traditional stonework.
We supply and install contemporary and traditional stoves of all brands.
This is also a good time to discuss the look and design of the installation.
The choices available for hearths, oak beams and surrounds can be overwhelming. We can advise you on the pros and cons and also the price.
Quite often customers use pictures from this website as inspiration and we're more than happy to replicate a finish.
We also recommend visiting sites such as Pinterest and Houzz for ideas.
Most installations take between 1-3 days. We always aim to carry out the work on consecutive days to minimise disruption.
When we arrive we take considerable care to protect the furninshing of the room. A combination of plastic and thick cotton sheets are used to protect the floor and room and rubber mat walkways are used from the fireplace to the exit of the house.

There's some important factors to consider when choosing a stove.
Will it be hot enough to heat the room?
Can it be used in a smoke control area?
Is it suitable for a freestanding hearth when there isn't a fireplace?
What warranty and guarantee is available with the appliance?
And arguably the most important one...the price.
We can advise and offer solutions to all these according to your budget.
Some of the most popular brands we install are listed below. You can click on the logos to take you to their respective sites.
Once complete, we carry out a thorough commisioning process.
This involves a walkthorugh-talkthrough of correct use of the stove and advising on the general do's and don'ts.
After completion we are on hand to answer any question you may have no matter how trivial they may seem.
We can also advise on suppliers of fuel and accessories for your fireplace.
We also provide yearly servicing for your appliance. This involves a sweep of the chimney and a service of the stove and fireplace, replacing any consumables such as fire cement and stove rope.
It also covers a number of checks ensuring the appliance still runs correctly and safely. We can produce a landlord's certificate for rental properties to satisfy any legal requirements.
