Stove Installation Services

Once you have purchased your stove from Thaxted Stoves we provide a complete installation and maintenance service.


One of the reasons why people trust us to install and look after their stove installation is because of our building background.

What is the installation process ?

Thaxted Stoves installation journey

1 - Visit the showroom

We’d like to invite you to visit our showroom, you can book ahead if you prefer. If you could bring some information with you it would be really useful and help us speed up the process and also give you a much more accurate idea of what options yous have available.

  • Room dimensions:  these help us guide you regarding the  appropriate stove output
  • Photos (both inside and outside): these will help us to understand where you want the stove and how we will install it
  • Inspirational photos from magazines, friends houses etc: these aid us in understanding the look you want to achieve.

2 - FREE survey

We will visit your property to complete a full installation survey where we will assess

  • Feasibility – is the desired location possible/optimal?
  • Chimney/flue – if existing then is it adequate? If new what are the requirements necessary?
  • Access – to the property itself, to the room and to the roof/chimney.
  • Fireplace – requirements for hearth, render, creation of new, removal of existing etc

3 - Quotation

Following our survey we will provide you with a detailed written quotation*.

Once you have returned your acceptance of our quotation and an initial deposit we will be able to confirm your installation date.

*Thaxted Stoves are professional, recommended and accredited – we pride ourselves on providing a high quality and reliable service. We know you may receive cheaper quotations but please consider whether they provide the same detail and assurances.

4 - Installation

On the morning of your installation day, our fitters will arrive with everything they need to get started.

Anything you are able to do to  clear the room will be a help, but we will bring plenty of dust sheets and protective flooring to keep things as clean as possible.

Installations tend to take between 2-4 days (a guide will have been given woth your quotation).

5 - After care

We are hand to give and advice and support, from fire lighting to annual servicing and maintenance.
