Sarah and Keith, Soundwell

Duncan installed a wood burner for us last August, he did an brilliant job and we were extremely pleased with the results! I was amazed at how quickly (three days) he was able to complete all the work and at the lack of mess during the process! Other friends and family who have had wood-burners installed have commented on the high quality of Duncan’s work. If you are considering having a wood-burner installed, we highly recommend Maybury Woodburners!

Gill, Clevedon

Maybury Woodburners were recommended to us by friends in Bristol who were thrilled with their work. We were pleased to find that Duncan was happy to travel out to us in Clevedon. His quote was very competitive and Duncan and his colleague, Adam, were polite and professional throughout. All the work was carried out exactly as agreed. In addition, they swept our other chimney – for an open fire in the dining room – which was brilliant. Before they left, Duncan lit the new woodburner and gave us some advice on how to get it going. All-in-all they did a cracking job!!  We would have no hesitation in recommending Maybury Woodburners to anyone. Many thanks Duncan.

John, Easton

I’ve just had my Charnwood C5 installed at my home and it is working brilliantly. I had prepared the fireplace and hearth myself and just needed someone to help me install the burner. Duncan was one of the first to get back to me and gave me a very competitive quote. He arrived on time and completed the work quickly and to a high standard. Duncan is both friendly and knowledgeable and I would have no hesitation recommending him to friends or using him again if the need arose. Thank you Duncan!

Kasia, Fishponds

We are thrilled with our new wood burning stove which was recently installed by Duncan.  He also carried out work to open up our fireplace and did a fantastic job, leaving beautiful exposed brickwork which was a last minute decision on our part but not a problem for Duncan.  Speedy and efficient and thorough job done.  We would not hesitate to recommend Duncan.  He even managed to work around our new kittens!

Jo,  Horfield

Duncan came recommended by a friend which is always a good start – he did a really great job and we are so pleased our woodburner.  Initally we thought we may have to lose our wooden fireplace surround but he came up with the idea of putting slate and cement board strips around the wood to shield it and keep it fireproof – and the end result is really smart.  The installation was really quick and clean too – we are very happy customers!

Anne, Redland

I’d recommend Duncan unreservedly. I was given his name after someone else had let me down, and he came the next day to install my wood burning stove and flue. The job was done quickly, efficiently and meticulously and I have every confidence in his work. The house is old and the chimney opening far from square, so alterations had to be made, this was done expertly and all for the same, very reasonable price Duncan had originally quoted. He’s charming and straightforward – and the stove looks wonderful and works beautifully. Thank you.

 

Clare Mitchell, Bishopston

We are so pleased with our wood burning stove – it looks great and really warms the room, we know it is a safe and has been fitted properly by someone who knows what they are doing. We wholeheartedly recommend Maybury Woodburners – Duncan took out our old fireplace, re-plastered, re-tiled and installed our woodburner, explained how the stove works and even lit it before he left  – we feel we got a great service.

Beren, Brislington:

Very quick and professional service, honest and transparent quoting, on time and efficient. Highly recommended, many thanks Duncan.

Colin Collis, Southville:

Absolutely brilliant! Not only did Duncan recommend a few stove options in my price band, he also referred me to a supplier who offered a substantial personal discount. The fitting was swift, clean and finished to an incredibly neat and professional standard (reassuringly, even the wood burner shop owner praised Duncan’s previous installation work.) If you have high standards, an eye for detail and want an installer you can completely trust – look no further. Really nice chap too!

Bridget, Bedminster

I would thoroughly recommend Duncan.  He was really easy to communicate with, the work he did was excellent quality and he was neat and tidy.  He’s a really nice trustworthy guy.

Tony, Bishopston:

Having bought our house with a wood burner we found out it had no flue liner. Duncan did a fantastic job at a very reasonable price. His friendly manner and attention to keeping and leaving everything clean was appreciated and all done in less than a day. We now have a much more efficient stove. Thanks Duncan.

 

Julia, Coalpit Heath:

Duncan
Many thanks for your excellent advice and prompt, efficient  and friendly service. After discovering that the stove in my new home had not been properly installed, I can’t thank you enough for your swift response to my call, and for going the extra mile to ensure all was made safe in time for me to move in on time.  I also love the new stove that you recommended and installed in  my office and can’t wait to start using it. I have already recommended you to my friends and will definitely call you next year for the annual services.

KC, Amitabha Centre:

Maybury woodburners have done a very good job for Amitabha Buddhist Centre in our World Peace Café.
They are conscientious and professional in all aspects of the work (including lining the flue and plastering the surround), providing us with a burner and hearth that fits perfectly, looks great and warms delightfully. Highly recommended.

Mel, St George:

Maybury Woodburners provided an extremely professional service from beginning to end. Duncan was respectful and friendly, offering expertise throughout the entire process. The quality of service was to a very high standard and I am delighted with both Duncan’s approach and the end result. I would certainly recommend Maybury Woodburners to anyone interested in installing a woodburner. An absolutely fantastic result and I am a thrilled customer!

Jo, Westbury-on-Tryme

After approaching 4 other wood burning Stove installers, Duncan was recommended to me by a colleague. When he visited us to provide a quote, it was clear to me that he is a very trustworthy person who is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about stove fitting. He also provided a competative and fair quote.
Duncan opened up our fire place and fitted a charnwood 4. The process took 3 days and Duncan made sure that he left our front room tidy and clear at the end of each day so that we could still use it. He arrived each morning at the agreed time and was friendly, professional and respectful of our home. We are very pleased with the results as Duncan’s work was thorough and completed to a high standard.
Throughout the process Duncan took time to communicate with us about what we wanted, answered all our questions and took time and care in acheiving the end result. We are very happy with our stove which is functioning really well and also looks really lovely. I would not hesitate in recommending Duncans services in Stove installation.

Becks, Leigh Woods:

The Woodburner is now the heart of our family home. The installation process by Duncan was creative and also sensitive to my vision. The costs were very competitive and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending them.
