Lovely friendly lads....good job well done..many thanks
had a stove fitted by East Coast Flues and am very pleased with the result. They were very friendly and professional. They were also very tidy in their work and left no mess and to top it off it saves me money on my heating bill! A fantastic company. I would recommend them to everyone.
East Coast Flues installed an AGA Little Wenlock Classic into my Bungalow today. Both Richard and Adrian we prompt, polite, courteous and above all, clean in their work. My wife was expecting a mess to clean up but it was probably cleaner after they left than it was before they arrived!! We chose East Coast Flues for our installation as we found that Richard understood his job, offered good sound advice and was extremely personable. He took the time to explain everything to us and even advise us on the little things we didn't even consider. I would not hesitate in recommending East Coast Flues to anyone who is looking to have a wood burner installed. I have attached a photo of the final install, its better than we had imagined it would be, we can't wait for the cold weather to start it up now!
Richard explained all of the wood burner options available and carried out the installation work in a clean and courteous manner. Once the installation was complete he took time to explain the instructions for usage, safety and warranties for both the wood burner and flue lining. I would highly recommend.
