"Based on my experience I would heartily recommend Gareth Kitchener. He
installed my woodburning stove and external flue in December 2012. I was late
with my order and wanted it in before Christmas and Gareth pulled out all the
stops to make it happen. The quality of the installation was first class, his
communication and timekeeping was professional, and he left the room tidy and
clean afterwards. I would have no hesitation using him again."
He was a diligent, tidy and reliable
chap. The work was done as quoted for, in
the timeframe specified and everything works. He his knowledgeable and had good
advice on the use of the log burner. I am pleased that I asked Gareth to
carry out the work and have recommended him several times.
Gareth was recommended to us via a friend who had had a fireplace place put in.
The work from the 1st meeting to completion were carried out in a very
professional manner. We were never pushed into buying the fireplace but we're so
glad we now have or log burner as it is the main talking point when people come
into the house.
He installed our wood burner 2 years ago and we are very happy with
it. He was very professional, understood what we wanted and carried it out to
the letter. Unlike other installers who seemed to think that they knew best!!!
He had to rip out our cast iron fireplace, brick up the recess and cut the
fireplace to fit our Riva 55. We got exactly what we wanted - a wood burner insert that looks like an
open fire. Everyone who sees it admires it.
Gareth installed a large wood burning stove for us in an
open plan kitchen / dining / snug with a high vaulted ceiling. This was a
new fire installation, so there was no flue or fireplace present. The
installation required a twin wall flue to be installed between wooded roof beam
and against plasterboard, so it was not an easy process to ensure the fire was
installed looking good AND meeting building regs.
Gareth did a great job and I
was exceptionally pleased with the work he did. His attention to detail, to
ensure everything looked as good as it possibly could, was impressive. He was
open and honest throughout the process, and where some (minor) additional
costs were incurred, these were discussed beforehand and were kept to a minimum.
What else can I say? Oh, he also helped with sourcing
our fire. Having found the fire I wanted on-line, at the lowest price, Gareth
was able to source it locally and matched the price. He collected then delivered
it for us at the start of the job.
I can highly recommend Gareth he did an excellent job for us at The Old Bakery
in Woodford fitting an internal flue to an existing fireplace. We came close to
paying some silly money from some of the local larger companies but fortunately
Gareth was recommended to me by our neighbours in Woodford.
He offered excellent value, used top quality parts and left no mess - we
would totally recommend him!
