We've had two woodburners installed recently by both Lee at Maginlees. I would definitely recommend. Some installers tried to charge us for coming out just to quote for doing the work. Some were clearly quoting based on what they thought you might pay. One local business gave a quote for the stove and a separate quote for the installation by a sub-contracted installer. They couldn't provde the stove we wanted but said if we sourced one ourselves they would charge 20% more for installation.

We were expecting a lot of mess but Lee and his team were incredibly tidy. They even brought their own hoover with them.

We bought both our stoves online and would recommend this site for checking out what people say about the one you're considering.

Finally, if you need granite for the hearth we used Miccolis in South Norwood. Really helpful and again reasonably priced.

Our new house in Beckenham has a fireplace in the living room we're hoping to sort out. Fireplace shop in Beckenham quoted approx £1500 to get it sorted for gas/real. Does this sound about right?

£1500 does sound about right based on the three quotes we had - this involved removing existing fire surround and hearth, putting in a new flue liner and installing new fireplace and hearth but did not involve the cost of the stove itself.

For new fireplaces u can't go wrong with Palace Fires in Upper Norwood http://www.palacefires.co.uk/ Really decent guy. Old school! And for chimney sweeps I've just had both mine done by Mmick at A1 Chimney Sweeps. He does chimney capping too. 07860 263 874. Really good bloke. Cost me £90 for both and there was a lot of soot in the dining room one!
