Here are some nice things that customers have said about our work:
We highly recommend Darren Wells of Fires and Flues. We had Clearview stoves fitted by Fires and Flues at our previous house but Darren still took time to explain which installation system would be the most efficient and the most attractive in our new home. Throughout the consultation period Darren’s expertise and understanding of our particular wishes impressed us once again. To make sure we were absolutely happy with the appearance Darren took the trouble to bring along both options for the flue on the day of installation so we could choose which looked best in the room. His attention to detail was faultless.
Darren’s quote was competitive. He worked carefully and efficiently with meticulous care and attention to detail. This is our 4th Clearview stove fitted by Darren. A recommendation that speaks for itself!
Andrew and Lesley, Oxted
We contacted Darren at Fires and Flues to investigate the possibility, options and cost of fitting a new stove in an old fireplace. From initial meeting we found Darren to be extremely knowledgeable and credible, above all he demonstrated real integrity. He gave us the cold hard facts of what we could and couldn’t achieve, and advised us of the best stove options out there for our needs. This was a very refreshing experience, others we contacted simply wanted to sell us the most expensive stoves without even considering implications, restrictions or our needs. Darren went on to install the stove in a very efficient manner, despite being a pretty messy job, he left the place spotless and was a pleasure to have around. The stove looks brilliant and is working great. We have no hesitation in recommending Fires and Flues and using Darren again (we want another one now!). Thanks again.

Darren's knowledge, expert eye and attention to detail were faultless. He created a beautiful focal point for our newly restored Edwardian home, paying close attention to our wishes to ensure that the design and installation suited the period of the property. In addition, Darren's work was immaculate - he always left the area spotlessly clean and dust free. We would not hesitate in recommending Darren.
We had no experience of wood-burner stoves, but Darren made the exercise easy. We’d had other quotes, but he seemed to know exactly what was needed at our house and, it wasn’t then farmed out to a work team. Darren came to the house several times to check everything and explain precisely what was involved. The work was carried out in two stages; removal of the existing open fireplace and preparation of the new hearth, and then the installation of a Clear-View stove. He was a very organised and tidy worker, ensuring that there was minimum disruption. Darren is personable guy, and we would recommend him to anyone as a very reliable person.
Roger Warwick, Plummets Plain
We had a new Fireplace and Clearview Stove fitted in December 2016 by Darren Wells. We are delighted with his workmanship and his competitive quote. We were impressed by Darren’s work ethic, the care he took throughout the house and the fabulous finished product. This brilliant service comes highly recommended by us.
Philip and Sarah Brown, Limpsfield
I recently had to have work done to my log burner, fireplace and my chimney lined. The work was carried out by Darren Wells who was recommended to me by my chimney sweep. On his first visit he identified a safety issue that we had had some concerns about and came up with options to solve the problem. I am so pleased with the end result. I cannot fault his workmanship. Not only that it was the meticulous way he worked, everything was covered up with dust sheets and he cleared up so well that when he left you couldn’t tell anyone had been in my home. I would highly recommend him. 5 stars.
J. Hicks, Westerham
We asked Darren for advice on replacing our old wood burner (not compliant with building regulations) in September 2016. He suggested opening up the existing fireplace, replacing the hearth and fitting a Clearview multi-fuel burner. To say we are pleased with the result would be an understatement. We were very impressed by Darren’s knowledge, workmanship and overall approach to the work – the result was outstanding and has completely transformed our room. If you’re looking to fit a new stove or replace an existing one, then we would highly recommend using Darren Wells.
David McConnachie, Severnoaks
Darren has fitted 2 stoves for us now, both here and at our previous house. He is honest, reliable, trustworthy and all his work is carried out to the highest standards. He has also had years of experience and can advise on the available options, which is really helpful. We have recommended Darren to several of our friends and will continue to do so. Everything is left clean and tidy afterwards too.
Julian Holbrook, East Grinstead
We would not hesitate to recommend Darren. He carried out a thoroughly professional job. And we are extremely pleased with our new log burner. Top job! Many thanks, very happy customers!
Andrew Field, Buxted
Darren is very polite, friendly and extremely professional. We now have a fabulous woodburner and are so pleased with the high standard of work Darren did. Highly recommended.
