Hi, hope you are all good.
I am looking for a company / freelance person to install a stove with flue and hearth at my place near Edinburgh. Do you know anybody ?
I got a quote for a job but it looks very expensive to me, or that is perhaps a standard. Please let me know - details below:
£450 labour charge
£100 miscellaneous items fixings and adhesives etc
£30 data plate and C02 monitor
£1450 twin wall flue including all components finished in matt black colour
£360 bespoke shaped hearth
Total: £2390, and that excluding cost of the stove.
Thanks a lot,
I've installed 3 stoves with hearth and flue. it's not particularly difficult, except lining up and making cuts through floors/ceilings and the roof. This could be a fair bit of work. You can easily price the materials online and see if the contractor price is in the same range. £450 for labour doesn't seem high.
