  • Chimney sweeping in Steeple Morden

    Excellent service. Just moved to a house with an open fire, never had one before so clueless really. Jamie returned our call quickly, was helpful and professional, booked us in within a few weeks, the price was at the lower end of what had been quoted as a "ballpark" on the phone and Michael (who came to do the job) was brilliant. Even gave advice on future works that we're considering, which was really helpful. Highly recommended and will use again.

  • Removal of exsisting/installation of burner stove

    Jamie and his team removed an old brick fireplace to open up the chimney, fire board and install a burner. Additional work was required that was unforeseen but costs were kept to a minimum which was appreciated and I was kept informed. The plastering was done to an excellent standard to finish it off and now just needs drying out to be painted and the full effect of the new fireplace appreciated. Would highly recommend as a very professional company to deal with, competitive prices and high skill man ship of work.

    Job was done on time, and below, yes BELOW budget. All involved were helpful and professional, and we are really happy with the finished job. This wasn’t the biggest job the company has undertaken, but we were never made to feel our requirements were unimportant or the job was beneath them. A new electric fire was installed, requiring some additional electrical work, and every care was taken to ensure the end result was what we were aiming for. I’d have no hesitation in asking CSI to do future work and am more than happy to recommend them.

Really made a difference to the efficiency of our wood burner, previously 99% of the heat just disappeared up the open chimney, the seal now means the room actually gets warm!. Thanks again. Richard

They worked hard as access was not entirely easy but no complaints were made.

  • HETAS Certification of installed log burners

  • Opening up fireplace

  • Chimney Repair needed - leaking

    Quick quote, in contact throughout, turned up on time with appropriate equipment and, importantly, fully liveried van (no unmarked white van). Resolved an invoice query promptly.

  • Looking for a front room feature and back room stove

    Excellent work, very happy

  • rebuild fireplace + install stove + liner

    The two young men, Jamie and Toby are quiet and courteous. They turned up when they said they would, did what they said they would do, replied to all my emails and tolerated my double-checking their work, and doing some of it myself (e.g. setting the lintel, rendering and plastering) gracefully and they reduced the price accordingly - very good.

    The HETAS obligation is properly followed up and registered.

    My only criticism is that their initial estimate is confusing because it includes mutually exclusive options (for you to chose) that are (weirdly) totalled to produce an artificially high price (the final invoice is slimmed down to the chosen items to produce the correct price) - the result of a homemade invoicing program, I think.

  • Install new fireplace

    Very good. Would recommend.

  • Flue liner installation

    CSI installed a liner to my existing log burner.
    Communication with this company was excellent at every stage of the job, they came to my home promptly to view the installation requirement and emailed a detailed quotation the same day. I was especially impressed with the quote as it was a full cost breakdown of all parts, something other installers don't always provide. I was able to upgrade the liner spec and fully understand the costs involved.
    The liner was installed the following week, Both Jamie and Toby did a great job explaining and confirming the work at every stage. They installed the liner safely and professionally without the additional expense of scaffolding, paying careful attention to the roof tiles to avoid any breakage.
    I would have no hesitation in recommending these friendly and capable lads to anyone wanting a professional and cost effective job doing.

  • Wood burner installation

    Jamie did a great job. He kept in touch with us with extras. Showed exactly how to look after the stoves and how it works. I would highly recommend this company.

  • New woodburning stove

    I am extremely satisfied with the work carried out by Cambridge Stove Installations. From the detailed breakdown of the estimate, advice given regarding the size and type of stove, the remedial work done on the old stack and installing the flue and stove the work was carried out on time to a very high standard and they left the rooms and outside areas clean and tidy.
    Very good.

  • Leaking chimneys and blocked gutter

    We had a very positive experience with this company, Jamie communicated with us efficiently and promptly using email and was very patient with our queries. They arrived when they said they would and worked through bad weather to complete the job. Jamie provided advice which was very helpful and completed some additional work that we requested on the day. Jamie was very knowledgeable about the maintenance of our chimneys and wood burner. One of the most positive experiences we have had with workmen, would definitely recommend.

  • Removing concrete plinth from a fireplace

    Removed fireplace plinth and bricked in old fireplace. Would highly recommended CSI to anyone. I live in sheltered accomadation and hired them to do the above work for me.

  • To place a net

  • Open fireplace refurbishment

    Great service , fast, helpful and fair price

  • Take out existing wood burning stove

    Pleasant people, job was completed, however it was quite expensive for a short and simple bit of work which I had believed to be more difficult than it turned out to be. I also asked for a small bit of concrete to be applied to fill in a gap. In hindsight I should have asked the price for that extra thing before agreeing I guess, since it was a lot for something non specialist.

    Cambridge Stove Installations Ltd's reply:

    Sorry you feel the work was too expensive, however all our prices are fully broken down, we gave the estimate/quote in advance & you accepted the works.
    Due to our experience, high quality of work & extra efficient attitude, we often complete works we believe in much quicker time scales then other builders, however we do not feel we should string out jobs thus making it look more worth while, if we can do it quicker we will, however we don't let this affect our quality. Thanks for your feedback however, we always take notes on board, thanks again for using CSI.

  • Remove 80s gas fire, brick surround and tile hearth

    I'm really happy with Jamie's work and would highly recommend him. He gave a detailed and very reasonable quote, with different options of capping the chimney explained. He and his work mate were really courteous and polite and worked extremely hard, leaving the place very tidy when they'd finished. He then arranged a plasterer, as part of the quote, to finish off the job after removal of the fireplace. Everything was done promptly, efficiently and to a high standard. We're really happy with everything and would highly recommend him.

  • Checking a chimney and fire place is working

    Amazing job! Really professional guys even tidy up after themselves. Highly recommend them.

  • Removal/boarding up of a fireplace and mantlepiece

    Jamie was extremely helpful in giving me a detailed quote at very short notice. He was in constant contact via email and replied to my many questions extremely promptly and thoroughly. They were able to do the work in the timescale required and I was amazed at how quickly they got the job done. They were thorough in ensuring the job was done to a high standard and gave us advice about the best way to do the job to avoid any future work needing doing. Having removed our fireplace they arranged for a plasterer to come and finish off so the work was completed to a very satisfactory standard. We're thrilled with the work they have done and were pleased with how reasonable the cost was. The workmen who came to the house were polite and friendly and left the room tidy afterwards. Would thoroughly recommend them.

  • Chimney pot capped

    Would highly reccommed Cambridge Stove Installations. The guys came on time and were very courteous and chatty. They explained exactly what they were going to do at every stage.

    Jamie was efficient and organised in all his communications, the use of images to set an accurate quote, a reasonable quote with a clear breakdown of costs and various options explored to ensure we could budget properly. Prompt responses to all my messages and questions made me feel confident we were in good hands. Toby who then completed our work was polite, efficient, friendly and tidy. He worked solidly to complete an excellent job of tidying up and fixing what was a bit of a calamity of a chimney stack. Thankyou both. Highly recommended.

  • Repoint Chimney Breast

    Great Price Great Job

  • Re-pointing 2 red brick chimney breasts

    Good communication from the outset, Stuck to quoted price, and dates. All work carried out to a great standard. Would use again, and recommend, Thanks Jamie.

  • Got a guard to chimney to stop the pigeons

    Jamie and his colleague were very professional and pleasant to work with. They ensured they would be able to do the job safely before beginning. They swept the chimney and fitted a cap to the top and a plate to the inside. Their hoover broke down, which prevented them from leaving the job as clean as they otherwise would, but it was just a case of using a good hoover after they had left to clean the brickwork fireplace. I would recommend this company.

  • crumbling weather bricks on bungalow chimney

    two professionals turned up on the day and was all over it in minutes . Made a nice job of the chimney and highly recommend

  • Fireplace removal 1930's tiled

    Excellent service and communication.
    Fantastic rate and willing to answer all questions.

    Would not hesitate to recommend to others.

  • Block up chimney for bedroom fireplace

    From start to finish Jamie provided a professional and well-priced service for the job we required. Clearly knowledgeable and experienced, Jamie was able to provide different quotes depending on how much work we wanted carried out and left little mess behind. Definitely recommended.

  • Plaster Fireplace Recess and Cap Chimney

    Excellent communication all-round. Turned up exactly when they said they would and did a good job well inside the time estimated. Very pleased with the results.

  • Fireplace removal and rebuild

  • Installation of Stove

    Fitted stove, liner and chimney cap.
    Very knowlegeable and thorough. Turned up on time and completed the job as promised.
    The only downside was that I paid for a more expensive liner (longer guarantee) to be told I couldn't burn coal in my my multi fuel stove as would invalidate the guarantee on the liner. If I had known I would have purchased the cheaper liner.
    On the whole my experience was a positive one and would recommend.

  • Builder to repoint chimney

    Excellent job done ! Very pleased with their workmanship and very professional . Would not hesitate to use them again.

  • Removal of Fireplace and Installation of burner

  • Chimney lining

    Highly recommended , two chimneys lined and two stoves installed . Honest service came in cheaper then the already competitive quote. Nice lads too .

  • Re Point Chimney

    I can't fault Jamie at CSI.
    We had a chimney repointed, new flue installed, chimney breast opened up for a wood burning stove, constructional hearth installed, Yorkstone hearth installed, chimney breast brickwork exposed and cleaned up, an Oak floating mantel installed and the stove sourced and fitted.
    Being 1st timers with stoves, we wanted someone who could almost hold our hand through the process and Jamie did more than that.
    From day 1 of our first enquiry, every question we asked was answered immediately (either by phone or email) and Jamie would always have questions and options for us that we hadn't even considered.
    He's clearly knowledgeable and has a passion for what he's doing.
    He's friendly and a good worker - along with the ever suffering Toby who was assisting. On the only day it rained, the poor lad was stuck on the roof for the whole day!
    We were let down by our stove supplier, and again Jamie was straight on the case sourcing us a selection of different stoves from a range of suppliers. The one we ended up choosing was much nicer than any we had found.
    He explains everything you need to know, what's going to happen and when, what he will be doing and what we needed to do.
    There's some interim pictures of our installation on the CSI website and when we've had the finishing done, we'll give him some more pics to show off his work.
    It was a pleasure having CSI, Jamie and Toby in for this work and wouldn't think twice about using them again.

He helped identifying problems with the dumpiness in the chimney area and helped finding people to make it right. The installation of the stove was very smooth and on time. The quote very reasonable with even some of the original quote reduced when some of the elements originally thought necessary not used during the installation. Very happy overall :)

They also fitted a cowl at the same time again with no disruptions. They gave us great advice on stove installations and Co2 sensors. Great job and an excellent company.

  • Multi fuel burner installation

    Jamie was unbelievably helpful in guiding us on the fitting of a multi-fuel burner. His advice was impartial and invaluable in directing us towards making decisions about the works required. Through his tireless guidance with one issue after another, we came to an understanding that due to building regulations our stove could not be fitted within the oak surround. His manner was professional yet friendly. Most impressive was his honesty and genuine care. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Jamie. Thank you very much Jamie.

    Great guys. Gave good initial advice and worked hard on the job. The fireplace looks superb! I'll be recommending them to my friends. Thanks.

    Full installation of a flue liner & stove. Carried out smoke test to check if flue had any leaks (it did). Removed old disconnected gas fire, made opening bigger, dropped a new liner down the chimney, connected liner to new stove, put up stone surround. Totally happy with work, polite and punctual.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    The work carried out was in preparation for my installation later on this year, I had the flue CCTV surveyed & swept also had a birds nest removed from there. The service was exceptional very polite and customer focused as well as being friendly at all points yet very professional in the job they were carrying out ensuring I had a full understanding of what was going on and for what reason, there was no jargon used that I didn't understand which helped to become a truly reliable service and can not wait to get the installation done later this year.
