    Does anyone know a competent installer of wood burning stoves in the area?

    I have one installed, but the chimney sweep has made a mess of the horizontal flue and back board and they need replacing/repairing.

    Pat Darcy fitted it originally but i don't think he does it any more......

    Any contacts appreciated

    My boyfriend used The Chimney Pot men last year, they were pretty good.

    There's a chap in Unit 8 ( I think ) at Buxton's on the Cannock Road, he's worth talking to. Andy Dale is his name, sells motorbikes and stoves..

    This is him - http://www.ajwoodstoves.co.uk/

    The idea is that they have complimentary seasonalities - people buy bikes in the summer and stoves in the winter.

    Maybe Mr A556 is into lawnmower racing.

    To be fully compliant you either need a HETAS registered installer, or to get buidling regs approval.
    We used RGS construction - competitively priced and very professional.

    You need something to burn once it's sorted? I've got an old fence, broken up and tied into bundles round the back of my house. Free to anyone. PM me if interested.

    Darren at Rugeley Fireplaces is a good contact for Woodburning stoves. He installed one for me and I haven't had any problems.

    Disappointed myself. I have called them four times at least, sent them a text (at their request) and have had two missed appointments for coming round to give me a quote on what looks like a simple job from ground level.

    Had the same issue

    We were sat in Mcdonalds and their van pulled on. When they left 5 mins later we called the mobile number on the van, the fella answered and we asked if he could come and look at a job for us asap. He replied he was at his caravan in Wales! When advised his van was on the Eccleshall Road, it changed to on hi way to his caravan in wales, bell him when gets back. Doh

    Ah I see. They were booked through Stafford Fireplaces, so maybe that's why they appeared okay.

    There have been four fires caused by wood burning stoves recently and the fire service have called on people not to leave them alight when they go out or when they go to bed. Has anyone got one? Would you recommend having one?
