Franco Belge Montfort Elegance 5KW

We installed this Franco Belge Montfort Elegance 5KW in a property in Colne, the job consisted of removing a cast iron open fire and cleaning up original brickwork.

Thorma Zaragoza 5KW Wood Burning Stove

We installed this Thorma Zaragoza 5KW Wood Burning Stove into a room that didn’t have a class one chimney, we used a black powder coated rigid twin wall flue system with the flue exiting through the wall at 45 degrees. Another option would be to take the flue system up through the second floor and out through the roof. The hearth is black granite. Job Location: Rossendale, Lancashire, BB4.

Esse 100SE With False Chimney Breast

Another stove we installed in a room that required a rigid twin wall flue system. Rather than having a free standing stove the client wanted a false chimney breast building which was built out of concrete block – as well as being the safest material to build it out of it also acts as a great retainer of heat once the stove has gone out. Job Location: Burnley, Lancashire, BB10.

Charnwood Cove 1 Stove Installation

Our customer was keen to bring the original fireplace opening back to life so it was exposed and cleaned up (re-pointed with lime mortar containing black cement dye), and a reclaimed oak beam and reclaimed stone hearth was sourced locally and installed. We also sanded and varnished the floor. The stove is a Charnwood Cove 1 in Almond. Job Location: Barrowford, Lancashire, BB9.

Broseley Serrano 5 Stove Installation

We installed this 5KW Broseley Serrano 5 in a Bungalow in Bacup, Lancashire. As there was no constructional hearth (the floor joists protruded into chimney breast) it was necessary to remove part of the wooden floor and build up the constructional hearth to bring the installation up to date with part J of the building regulations. This was back-filled with hardcore and a concrete hearth laid. Indian flags were then used as the decorative hearth. Job Location: Bacup, Lancashire, OL13.

Parkray Consort 5 Slimline Stove Installation

You never know what will be revealed when ‘opening up’ an old fireplace. This job in Nelson, Lancashire exposed quite an interesting shaped fireplace opening. The original brickwork was cleaned up and part re-built in this trapezium shaped fireplace, a reclaimed oak beam was fitted above the fireplace opening. A 6 inch flue liner and new chimney pot was also fitted. The stove is a 5KW Parkray Consort Slimline. Job Location: Nelson, Lancashire, BB9.

Firefox Gallery Collection 8 Muti-Fuel Stove

The client wanted exposed bricks for this job and because the original brickwork was in an unsatisfactory condition we we opted to to use hand-made bricks to give it the ‘old’ look. A reclaimed dutch elm beam (from Blackpool) was fitted, the stove is a Gallery Collection Cleanburn 8. Job Location: Nelson, Lancashire, BB9.

Firefox 5 and Firefox 8 Gas Stove Installation

We installed both a Firefox 5 and an 8 in two neighbouring properties in Barnoldswick. We carried out the work simultaneously to reduce the cost of both jobs. A European oak mantel was fitted to them and the hearth is made out of handmade bricks. Job Location: Barnoldswick, Lancashire, BB18.

Parkray Consort 5 Slimline Stove Installation

Our work included the re-pointing of the bricks and plastering of the chimney breast as well as installing the Parkray stove and twin wall flue liner. Job Location: Colne, Lancashire, BB8.

Westfire Series 2 Stove Installation

This was an interesting job – not your standard twin-wall flue installation; To maximize room space we built an external fireplace opening with a stone flag roof – and a black powder coated twin wall flue system. The stove is a Westfire Series 2 (7KW), we also installed an external air kit meaning the combustion air was supplied straight into the stove from outside thus reducing cold draughts in the house. Job Location: Burnley, Lancashire, BB12.

Gallery Collection Firefox 5 Stove Installation

A 5kw Firefox Stove (Gallery Collection Classic 5) – This was installed in a terraced house in Colne.

We always give the chimney a thorough sweeping before installing a wood burning stove.

Parkray Consort 4

We fitted this Parkray Consort 4 in a detached property in Whalley, Clitheroe. The job included the decommissioning and removal of an inset gas fire and fireplace surround. The fireplace opening was made considerably larger and three new concrete lintels were installed to take the weight of the precast concrete flue. Due to it being an external chimney, a six inch 904 grade flue liner was installed and then back-filled with vermiculite (this is to insulate the flue and prevent tar forming by the cooling of the combustion products). The fireplace opening was cladded with 25mm vermiculite board and finished by spraying with high temperature stove paint. We also fitted a black granite hearth (supplied by Slate Age of Fence, Burnley). Job location: Whalley, Clitheroe Lancashire, BB7.

Job Location: Heptonstall, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, HX7.

Esse 100DD Stove Installation

Esse 200 Stove Installation

Some customers choose to carry out any necessary building work themselves. This is an example of one such job.
