Duncan is lovely and did such a wonderful job. He considered all aspects and suggested some great solutions. He was tidy, experienced, and brilliant to have in the house and really helpful in the preparations.

Duncan is tidy, professional and efficient, it is the second burner he has installed for me and I couldn't be happier with the result.

Booked Duncan and team to fit a woodburner in our kitchen including opening up the fireplace, replacing the flue, laying the hearth, plastering etc. He arrived on time and finished in a day and a half. Very professional, competitive price and a fabulous job done. Highly recommended.

Really please with the work carried out by Duncan and Charlie. The fire place is excellent, was quickly fitted and left very clean. After the brief explanation I gave Duncan it has turned out exactly how we imagined it. Cannot recommend them enough.

Amazing service from Maybury Woodburners. Great communication from the start, gave us lots of advice choosing the right burner, respectful and tidy in our home, and have done an incredible job. I'm almost looking forward to winter! Thank you so much Maybury Woodburners 🙂

Fitted a log-burning stove in to our cleared-out fireplace in just under 6hours from a prompt turn up at the arranged time. Everything left tidy and they are pleasant people. Installed our son's stove previously, similar experience.

We were extremely pleased with the job Duncan and Charlie completed for us. We love how it looks and have had many lovely fires already! We weren’t sure what we would discover as the fireplace was opened up and Duncan was able to be creative and clever with exposing the brick feature as I wanted whilst also solving minor brickwork issues to bring out the very best of what was there. We love the modern wood burner and the original traditional feature of the brick. They were a pleasure to work with, respectful in my home and with my family. Cleaned up really well, I was happy to make lots of cups of tea for them! Really happy and would absolutely recommend.

Duncan and the team were excellent, we had been in contact with them since last year and they provided a good insight into what we needed done with a clear plan of action on how we get there. I really felt comfortable with how things were handled from start to finish. I had got a few quotes with theirs being in the middle on pricing, took 2 days to get the work done, I wasn't able to be there on the first day so left the keys and when i returned the changes and quality of work were evident. very happy with the finish job and have already asked them to come back when we upgrade our existing woodburner. Do book earlier rather than later as I know they are busy which again was a good sign of the craftmanship (we booked in August for January)

Some Testimonials:

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:

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.
