"Overall, we are thrilled with the gas insert. It has really warmed up our living room and I love how it looks. We had a few communication hiccups with getting" installation set up, but nothing major. We got a quote from one other place that was slightly more expensive, and we liked the unit from United better as well.

"Everything went very well. I had been in and out of the store numerous times with questions before we made the decision to purchase here. My sales person (
" ) was very patient and professional when answering all of my questions. The people who did the installation were on time, courteous and showed me how to operate the fireplace before they left. At one point after installation I thought there might be a problem with the different fire settings. I stopped in at the store. They gave me some suggestions and told me to call or come back if that wasn't working so that they could have someone come and check it. I took their suggestions and it worked fine.

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.

Fireplace Installation And Maintenance reviews in Madison


The team was professional and the quality of work was outstanding. The price without the extra stone work was competitive with area fireplace installers. It was the stone work to the vaulted ceiling that added to the cost.

Bill was very helpful when we worked thru the design...which turned out amazing.

One door of the regency fireplace unit had the paint / coating come off.

cleaned my fireplace in October 2012. At that time he found serious flue and cap problems that would have caused a fire in my condo had I used it! His synopsis was the damage occurred from high winds Evidently, when these condo's were built middle 1980's the installations did not meet code and the flue was never attached to any inside wall….. just free floating.

I bought a chimney sweeping/inspection coupon on the list.
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived and said the cleaning was not needed and he'd apply my coupon in the future if I wanted. He noticed some cracking in the chimney and gave us some options. He also looked at our gas fireplace and fixed a couple problems.
We will work with him again.

also offered to give the neighbors on our street a special deal to care for their chimneys. We have found our chimney sweep!

Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
answered the phone right away, sounding very friendly and professional. When I told her what my project entailed (fireplace tiling), she said that was not a project that they do, but instead of ending the call at that point, she offered to stay on the line and help brainstorm other options. I was impressed by her helpfulness, and she gave me a great idea for resources beyond Angie's List for tiling services. This is an example of a company going above and beyond, even when it is no apparent gain to them.
With this professionalism and attitude, I know I will turn to
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
for my future masonry projects, and would certainly recommend them.
- Katrina F.

We were amazed by
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
's expertise, generosity, and honesty. He gave us a wealth of information about our fireplace and chimney. When he saw that our chimney did not need cleaning, he could have carried on anyway. Instead, he told us what he saw and gave us a credit which we will use for his business in the future. We had already intended to add a heating fireplace insert. We will surely be calling on
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
for this work, and we look forward to working with him again.
On top of all that, he is a super nice guy, polite and friendly, and so is his assistant.

did a fantastic job. The initial store consultation was informative and helpful. The estimator came to the house when scheduled and was very thorough. The installation crew was exceptional. The two individuals from

worked for 3 days removing two obsolete fireplace inserts, running new gas and electric lines and installing the three new units. They were very careful keeping the workspace clean and picking up all materials at the end of each days work. They readily answered questions, and consulted with me during the installation process when a question arose. In addition to being skilled technicians, they were excellent representatives for

Installed Mendota Basic gas insert fireplace: Install went OK except I preferred to use my electrician and there was a mix up between contractors about how to install the wiring so it had to be done over.
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
tested the fireplace several times. He gave good instructions to a carpenter about building a box to support the insert.
Stone tile around the insert:
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
did a beautiful job, and he arranged the tiles just the way I wanted them. He worked with my carpenters to design the framing to accommodate the design for wood trim and mantle that I wanted.
Rebuilt the chimney from the roof up: The masonry itself is professional. This took a long time to complete due to the long winter and to various excuses (e,g, deaths, illnesses, other jobs started after ours). The scaffolding was left up longer than promised and that annoyed the neighbor who could not use his driveway. Communication on this issue was difficult for all of us.
Concrete cap on chimney: This looks great.
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
forgot to do a little piece of cap on the side, but he came back and did it later, no questions asked.
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
pointing: Grinding went well. Missed a few "bee holes" the first time round.
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
came back later and filled those in.
Waterproofing: this went well.
Block cutting and installing a larger glass block window: Glass block looks great, and matches the other glass block windows in the basement.
Window well:
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
used landscape blocks that matched the style and color of a window well around another basement window. The blocks are level and fit exactly. They look great.
Fireplace doors:
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
picked doors of a style I wanted. Installation was professional. I was disappointed that the doors don't seal airtight as I had understood when we initially discussed the job. I felt this should have been discussed more before the doors were installed.
Epoxy floor:This didn't go so well. The grinder left many semi-circular and circular gouges in the floor which could not be ground out. So the floor is very uneven. Perhaps this was due to the quality of the existing concrete, but I don't really know. Then the epoxy paint he used didn't cover the floor.
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
did this over at his expense.
Communication: Early on,
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
kept me well-informed about when he would come and arrived as planned. However, there were times when calls and emails went unanswered for days. Scaffolding that blocked the neighbor's driveway was not removed when promised. During the second contract, the number of unanswered calls increased. Several times
Madison Fireplace Contractors Provider Name Locked
promised to come and did not show up or explain why, which delayed all the other work that had to wait until after the floor was redone. It also meant I was having to arrange for my daughter to be elsewhere on days even when he didn't show up and put off other contractors. This happened at least half a dozen times.
Timeliness: There were several delays on the first job, attributed to weather but not entirely due to that, so the job took longer than we expected. Therefore, in the second contract we specified a start date (April 26, 2013) and an end date (May 10, 2013) and a penalty for missing the date. The job was not complete until the end of August, when he came to install the fireplace doors, to complete the
