Book your stove installation in June/July for a September 2019 fitting

As we approach the end of June, and hopefully some sunny weather, those looking at a stove installation in 2019 tend to put this on the back burner (excuse our joke!). The fact is that when the main selling season starts in September you will be very fortunate to find an installer with any free time before the end of the year – bookings will be flowing thick and fast. As a consequence, we have put together some very attractive packages for those looking at a stove installation later this year.

First package: £1300 (including stove and fitted)

•    CO Alarm and fitting
•    Hetas certificate on completion

The above price is based on an existing fireplace where no additional building work is required. If any additional building work is required this can be done at the same time at an agreed rate.

Wood burning stove

What to do when stove paint starts coming off your wood-burner

We are asked many questions about wood-burning stoves (and multifuel stoves) but one of the most common is about stove paint and why it can start flaking off at a relatively early stage. Many people are obviously concerned about the flaking paint but it is often part of the curing process and extremely easy to rectify.

What causes paint to flak off a wood burner?

When you buy a brand-new wood-burning stove it is obviously the finished article but there is still one last thing, a curing process for the paint. This is specialist paint which is resistant to extremely high temperatures but with a new stove there will still be liquid in the paint. You will notice that over the first three or four days of using your new wood-burning stove there will be a chemical reaction within the paint. This is known as “curing” and is quite simply the process by which remaining liquids within the paint evaporate due to the extreme heat created by your stove.
