How To Find A FireplaceIf you are considering getting a new fireplace for your living room, or you want an existing fireplace changing, you will have to choose a fireplace fitter to do the job. It is important to do your homework before buying from a fireplace supplier because if you choose an under-qualified supplier you will probably be unhappy with the end result.
To help you in your quest to a find a suitable fireplace supplier, here are a few handy hints:
1 Visit a number of prospective fireplace showrooms and browse the range of fireplaces they have on show. Take the time to ask the salesman how much experience he, or the company, has in selling and fitting fireplaces to determine if they are suitably qualified to do the job.
2 If you are having a gas or electric fire fitted along with the fireplace, you should check that the prospective fitter is CORGI registered and therefore qualified to fit a gas or electric fire. You may also want to ask whether the fireplace fitter is a member of a trade association, as this will ensure they follow a code of ethics and therefore will offer a higher quality of work.
3 If you dont have time to visit local fireplace showrooms then consider buying online. There is now a number of fireplace companies that sell their products on the Internet. Some of these companies also have showrooms whilst others do not. However, buying online offers a fast and convenient way of getting a new fireplace and there should be plenty of designs to choose from.
4 Finally, you could ask for recommendations from family and friends who have recently had a new fireplace fitted in their home. Sometimes an honest opinion about the work of a fireplace fitter is all it takes to secure or lose them business
