Headed by Dennis, our team of Gas Safe and Hetas registered fitters have over 40 years experience between them. Constantly keeping abreast of changes in regulations, the boys are among the best in the business. It took us 3 years to find them and we have been associated ever since. Charming and efficient, they get the job done and done well. London and Kent covered.
We offer a free advice and consultation service to ensure you have the right fireplace or stove to fulfil you needs, desires and budget. We take pride in our work and can organise the job from chimney sweep to fitting, ensuring your purchase is as smooth as possible.
"Thank-you once again Matt and the team. Our Fireplace looks beautiful. The limestone mantelpiece and multi-fuel stove have become the focal point of our lounge. Thanks for your advice and ideas and have been recommending you to our friends." Beth Marsden Road, SE15.
With the nature of architectural salvage, some of the time the item you require may not be in stock. To solve this we keep a 'search' book and try to source the item for you. Alternatively, if we know of somewhere you can obtain the elusive object then we will happily let you know.
Matthew, Director and owner of the business, has a wealth of hands on experience. From organising, coordinating and managing demolition jobs, writing a column in a period magazine, giving styling advice for customers and for TV shows, the Gaffer has the ability to get the job done to the highest of standards. 'Leave things better than you found them', and, 'There are no problems, only solutions' are a couple of old cliches he abides by.
Transform your pine doors by having the old paint removed. After, we recommend the door be lightly sanded and fed, brought back to life, with either oil or wax. (Stripping from £25.00 / Waxing £15.00). If you are stuck for someone to hang your doors, then let us know. Our carpenter, Scott, is well experienced and can offer more than just door hanging.
