Fireplace Installation And Maintenance reviews in Minneapolis
I highly recommend
The main reason we installed the insert was the tile liner in our chimney was badly damaged. In order to have a fire our options were to replace the Chimney, re-line the chimney or install an insert. We chose the insert because it was less expensive than re-lining the chimney and included a very energy effecient wood burning insert.
This is the second winter with the insert. The insert works great, the furnace does not run when when we have a fire, saving money and the wood fire does not it does not over heat the house. The insert is located in a room 15' x 24'.
Besides the benefit of effecient heat the cracked tile in the old chimney lead to a very strong smokey smell on humid days in the spring, summer, fall. That smell is gone! When the insert is installed the chimney is 'sealed' off from the living area with insulation so eliminating the flow of air through the chimney into the house.
They have been very supportive of the product through both email and phone calls when there were questions.
Again, I highly recommend
*Woodland uses their own own National Fireplace Institute certified employees for installing the insert/
**Overall Installation - Our house is over 100 years old and the electricians had to drill through close to 2' of brick and mortar to reach the firebox. I think it took a little longer than expected. This was a very good thing because the first company we talked to about an insert said the wiring for a wood insert could not be in the firebox, i.e. they would run a wire from the insert to a wall plug. This would have been less expensive but would have looked very tacky so overall very happy with the installation.
==>>Woodland is very familiar with all the codes and worked with us to make sure we were happy with the installation.
He walked me through how to operate the remote and the details behind the warranty.
He did an excellent job and I would recommend
When he arrived he assessed the situation. My fireplace pilot was blowing itself out. I told him about the new gas meter than got installed. This lead him to the conclusion that the new pressure was too high and that I needed to have a regulator installed on the line. So, he went outside, cut the copper line, flared the ends and installed the regulator. Then, he came back inside and did a thorough cleaning and testing of
Monday came and went without a bid. I waited until Wednesday to follow-up on getting the bid. I was informed that
My speculation is that the company had no desire to give me a bid, perhaps because they were not comfortable with me buying
I don't like giving a company "F" ratings because they didn't give me a bid... they clearly can choose to do business (or not) with whoever they like. That said, my "F" rating is simply because of the lack responsivness, follow-up, and general lack of professionalism. I tend to think Fireplace Guys probably do good work. However, being a good contractor goes beyond simply installing a fireplace... it also is a function of their relationship with their customers. In this case, I didn't appear to have a relationship at all.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
