Stovefitter's is a brand owned by Julian Patrick Marketing Ltd., established by stove installer Julian Patrick.
Why does Stovefitter's exist? Here at Stovefitter's, we think wood burning stoves are really great - life-enhancing. We also believe that they have a place in assisting us to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
Professional installers can be found all over the country and most do a great job (contact us for an installer list in your area).
But many people are unable to afford a wood burning stove. Not because the stove is expensive (stoves can be purchased for a few hundred pounds) but because the installation is too expensive for some. Registered stove-fitters can charge upwards of two thousand pounds for the install. Nothing wrong with that - they work very hard and some are very good at what they do. If you can afford it - using a registered installer is the route to go.
For those who cannot afford it, there is the option of self-installing and using Building Control to sign-off.
Stovefitter's exists to shine a light into the trade. To give the customer the power to self-install (and save ££££'s) or, if they are employing a fitter, to have the knowledge not to get taken for a ride.
