Hiring the Right Stove Installer

Finding the appropriate installer is an important step when embarking on any hearth project. You want the job done right, completed on time and done in a safe manner.

Finding a Local Dealer

Tips for Working with a Local Dealer

  • Provide them with guidelines for working in your home. This includes what times of day they can arrive and depart, where they should park vehicles, etc.
  • Have a contract in place before the work begins.
  • Ensure the installer is NFI certified. The National Fireplace Institute (NFI) tests and certifies planners and installers to ensure they can properly plan and install hearth products. NFI Certified Installers have fundamental knowledge in combustion, heat protection, safety guidelines, and construction fundamentals. Certification is regarded as an excellent indication of professional training and commitment.
