The Most important times of your new hearth ownership is the day that it was purchased and the day that it is installed. Planning and properly installing your hearth appliance and venting system require technical knowledge and experience. Our hearth professionals will help you sort through the thousands of choices to find the products that will work for your application. The numerous decisions such as clearance to combustibles, proper floor protection, sizing and placement of venting systems should all be made with the expertise of a specialist.
Here are some things to be aware of when choosing a hearth company:
- Be sure that your hearth installer has experience with the hearth product that you have purchased and is willing to service or repair the unit if you have any problems with it. Most Hearth Dealers will not repair any installation related problems with your fireplace unless they are the ones who install it.
- Be sure that your hearth dealer is licensed and insured. If you hire a contractor who does not possess the proper license and insurance, you become the general contractor. This means that you are responsible for any damage to your home and can be held liable if the installer gets hurt while on your job.
