Another Day, Another Deadline. [Oct. 23rd, 2012|03:47 pm]
Mark Rimmell
Fireplace man just told me fireplaces would not be fitted this week. Second deadline missed. Second time we've cleared the rooms only to be told "Not this week mate".
The new date is now 8th of November. Funny thing is I started all this back in July, thinking it'd be all done before the winter. D'oh!

Can't you fit your own fireplaces?

Not sure how that would work, you'd need to get it inspected every stage of the way to get a HETAS certificate. By the time you'd paid for the chap to keep coming out to check your work may as well pay a HETAS member to fit it. The fitting cost isn't the lion's share of the total cost.

I have been promised it will "definitely" the 8th of November.

I'm thinking of starting a sweep-stake on what the final date will be.

I was warned this company could be a little unreliable as far as dates go... BUT was also told they are the best in the county as far as quality goes, so stick it out because it would be well worth it. And frankly, I expect delays when employing any trade in this country.
