Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a short list of the most Frequently Asked Questions
1/ ..I just cannot decide if I want a Gas fire or an Electric fire ?
The answer to this question is straight forward enough, if you use the fire fairly often for heat, you need a gas fire. If it's just for show, a nice warm glow ( and with very little occassional heat ) an electric fire will suit you better.

2/ ... Marble or Limestone ?
We have stopped selling limestone fireplaces, why ? Marble, being a far more durable product and requiring far less in terms of maintenance is I feel a better choice, we are finding less and less people asking about stone fireplaces. While many types of stone fireplaces exist, and some are better than others, we feel that marble is the better choice. Another major factor is how porous limestone in particular is, if anyone spilt a drink of coffee or red wine on it....
3/..Do you sell plaster fireplaces ?
No and we will never sell them, its a product and material that we feel has had 'it's day', its also very fragile compared to timber and marble, if I had young children in my home I would never have one.
4/...I'm looking for a 'cast type' gas fireplace, do you sell them ?
We have taken the decision to stop selling these products, due to just how inefficient the vast majority of them are, compared to more modern fires, which can achieve the same look without actually being a cast basket type.
5/ ..Installation costs ?
...While every installation is different, as a rough guide, if we are replacing an existing gas fire and fireplace,~ on a like-for-like basis~ the average cost is around £250.00. This would be anywhere within 30 miles of our Bridgend showroom.
For example, replacing a timber mantle, with it's marble set and inset gas fire for a new marble fireplace with an inset gas fire,provided the gas supply is nearby and its going into a chimney or flue liner which is up to current standards, £250.00 is the average cost.
