• Hiring an Installer for a Hearth Job
    Finding the right installer is an important step when starting a hearth project. You want the job done right and to be completed on time.

    Your local hearth dealer is your best bet for ensuring the job is done right. Here are some tips to consider when making this important decision:

      • Choose someone who specializes in fireplace and stove installation. You’d like peace of mind that the installer is experienced with hearth products that involve flames, heat and proper venting. Your hearth dealer is the best resource for providing the expertise you need.
      • Make sure they are licensed to work in your area, and are bonded and insured.
      • 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.

    An excellent question to ask is if 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.
