Questions And Answers

Yes we can make almost any size you require. We make all of our limestone and marble surrounds we sell. Because we manufacture the suites we can offer custom sizes that are tailored to client’s taste or domestic setting.

Yes we do. Having a survey is crucial part of nearly all fire and surround installations. Getting a survey eliminates any issues that might arise during the fitting process plus, a survey will make sure your property is compatible with your chosen fire/surround.

There is a small charge of £100 for a survey, however, that £100 will be deducted from your goods if you decide to go ahead with the fitting, resulting in the survey being free.

If you do go ahead with a survey, pay £100 and you change your mind, we will reimburse you £80 of the £100 payed. All of our fitters are self employed qualified fitters and the £20 charge covers their time and fuel cost.

The normal turnaround time is 3-4 weeks from first ordering to fitting or delivery. If we have the goods in stock this can greatly reduce the time to within a week.
