We provide the complete service where stoves are concerned.
From the creation of an inglenook chamber, to the sourcing of old oak beams, lining of the flue and demonstrating the correct operating procedures, we can give you peace of mind and guaranteed warmth. All our work is carried out to high standards .
Most prospective customers seem to have either a bricked-up chimney breast, an old gas fire fixed to the wall, or an old fireplace they inherited with the house and have never really liked.
In order to have a stove fitted, they may just want something fairly simple like remove old fireplace, made a plain squared-off opening and a new hearth, line the internal sides and rear with fire retardant board, make good the plaster around the new opening, line a new chimney liner and install a new chimney pot.
The cost will vary according to the size of opening/cost of hearth materials/ type and finish of surrounds/ size of skip required to remove the rubble/ distance from our showroom/ etc., but a figure of around £800 (excluding a beam or surround) is fairly typical, on top of the cost of the stove and stove installation.
If you have no chimney at all, we can install a twin-wall insulated stainless steel flue system either up the outside or inside of the building. Prices will vary depending on the height of the flue/flue diameter/number of bends/amount of modification to ceiling and roof timbers, but for a fluegoing up through the house, boxed-in with mock chimney breast containing aplain opening, the cost would typically be around £2,500 to £3,200.
An external chimney would be several hundred pounds less, and could be supplied in black powder-coated finish if preferred to shiny stainless steel finish.
Most of the traditional and online shops appear not to want to get involved in this kind of building works as they are only interested in sales.
We at DeReve Stoves/Fires Surrounds are different. We are more then happy to take on all this on our shoulders as we are well experience in building trade via our sister company Bolton Property Developments Ltd.
