Fireplaces

Most people enjoy sitting in front of a fire on a cold day, but traditional, wood-burning fireplaces come with a few disadvantages. They tend to waste energy, require maintenance and pose some risk. Read this guide to discover several alternatives that provide the same ambiance, but with fewer downsides.

Dear Angie: How much can I expect to pay to have my wood fireplace converted to gas? Our house is about 30 years old. The bottom of the fireplace looks like it's easily accessed through the basement. The conversion would involve running 30 to 50 feet of gas line. — Thomas M., Cincinnati, Ohio

He hasn't legally abandoned the job as long as he is still showing up and doing something, even if it is very little, from time to time.  You'll have to fire him first.  Have documentation that the job is not being done in a timely manner, showing when he has and has not worked.  Be ready for a fight and probably a legal battle since he will likely still want more money or won't refund money paid for incomplete work.

 

Change the locks and inform the contractor their services on your property are terminated.  Tell him if anyone representing his company enters your property they will be considered trespassing and will be prosecuted.  Then hire another company to check the work he has done to make sure it is right.  Somehow I doubt it is given the nature of his work ethic.  Then have the new contractor repair any bad workmanship and finish the job.  Keep records as any documented things that have to be redone will help your case against the first contractor.

I would recommend finding a good hearth retailer in your area and work with them to select a stove that is right for your home. They should also be able to arrange for certified installer to handle the installation. Keep in mind many areas require a city or county permit for the installation, and it may be wise to have the chimney and fireplace inspected by a certified chimney sweep beforehand.

Although we decided against purchasing retractable shades due to the number of windows and the expense, we highly recommend this company.

is a great guy as well as a true professional, low key but very thorough. He explained what would be done clearly and came with samples and brochures so that we could get a good idea about what we would be purchasing. We enjoyed talking to him and would have hired him in a heartbeat if we had decided to purchase retractable shades.

I bought a $99 certificate for $500 toward a direct vent gas fireplace insert. Good deal.
I felt like
Waterville Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
's prices seemed a little high, but the quality was good. The big surprise was the labor cost to install. Almost $900! After the cost of the other accessories were added, the $1900 insert was now up to $4500. I was not happy, but still decided to go ahead.
However, the chimney has some issues, and needed a "special" cap installed. I understood that and was expecting a little higher cost. It was $500 more! The salesman tried to explain that it had to be custom made, etc, and they could have charged even more labor. Not a good thing to say. I reminded him they were already getting $900 for that.
I contacted my brother-in law who is a union sheet metal worker for 30+ years. I told him what they were doing, and he almost choked when he heard what they wanted to charge. He told me how the piece is fabricated and the cost of the sheet metal. That's when I finally decided I did not want to do business like that.
I don't mind paying for quality, especially when it comes to professional installers, but their is a limit.

It went very well- he was on time and courteous. He had a cloth which he used to put the glass on in order to clean it. We were very pleased with the work.

'We called JH

to install a top sealing damper on a fireplace for a home we recently purchased. The fireplace was a prefab and the original damper was warped and could not be closed. The damper could not be replaced since the fireplace was a prefabricated unit. JH

was the only company we could find to offer us the option of the top sealing damper as opposed to completely replacing the fireplace at a cost of over $5,000 estimated by other companies, which would not even include repair to drywall after the new chimney was in place. I am so happy we found JH

and a much cheaper alternative to replacing the fireplace unit.

It went really well. From the beginning of the project at the showroom to the installation, they provided good communication and kept us up to date with delivery, provided a 3rd-party inspector to check out our chimney, and when they would be coming out to install the unit. At the showroom, they spent a lot of time with us to pick out the right unit for our space, and were patient with all of our questions. The insert provides the heat that we expected, and is a wonderful addition to our living room space. We use it almost daily from November through March, and to date, we've never had an issue.

recommends an annual cleaning as well, and we do as well - their service is very thorough, and while we've never had a problem, it's good piece of mind when working with gas in your living space.

was the first craftsman to respond to us. He came out immediately, gave us a fair price estimate, and upon approval, scheduled our job within a week. He did a great job for us, and the fireplace looks fantastic.

They arrived promptly, did their work and cleaned up after they were done. They also provided the brick to fill the openings. The work was very professionall done. Getting in touch was more difficult, I suspect, because this is a small business, one or two man, and the owner does not return phone calls as fast as most people would like. Once we connected, all went smoothly.
