“Excellent service – professional and reliable, clearly experts and care about the quality of their work. Would recommend them without hesitation!”

Kev and Kate at LikeLogs are awesome!

Kev went above and beyond the call of duty… in addition to installing our lovely new Charnwood C4 stove he remodelled both fireplace openings in our open-plan space prior to installation and made good afterwards like a true pro.

We were initially drawn to LikeLogs due to the beautiful examples of previous work displayed on their site, Kev’s attention to detail and keen eye for aesthetic didn’t disappoint. Roll on winter!

I would absolutely recommend Kev and Like Logs to anyone considering getting a wood burner installed. I found Like Logs online and they had fantastic testimonials, and a soon as we met Kev we were more than confident in him and so didn’t feel the need to get any other quotes.

Kev and Kate were a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process and explained everything really well, as well as recommending the best sort of stove for us to get. Everything was spotless after Kev first prepped our hearth and then installed the stove. We both had to work when the stove was being installed but had no issues whatsoever with leaving Kev with our spare key.

The stove looks amazing and I’m just annoyed that we’re in the middle of a heatwave now!!

Thanks so much,

Olivia & Andrew, E10

 

It is pretty simple: If you want your stove or fire done properly then get Kevin to do it. Kevin gave us perceptive advice and explained the issues in a sensitive and tailored way. He carried out the work promptly, cleanly and within budget. Kev has a passion for his work and is clearly a master of his trade – that is important when it comes to something as potentially lethal as a fire. The results are first class: The stove looks brilliant and has really made winter a joy. I have not been so pleased by an inanimate object for years.

Many thanks.

Recreating two small hearths and fitting wood-burning stoves into existing fireplaces in a tiny old cottage in Spitalfields was no small challenge, but I am happy to say that Like Logs have fulfilled this splendidly, with great efficiency, sensitivity and intelligence. I would recommend them unreservedly to anyone contemplating such a venture.

Paul Godfrey, Spitalfields

 

We are delighted with the woodburning stove that Like Logs have installed for us. The installation and the work done to remove the old fireplace and tile the new one is of a very high standard and was carried out cleanly and efficiently. Kev provided all of the information and guidance that we needed in order to choose the correct stove and how to operate and maintain it. We would highly recommend Like Logs and look forward to those cold winter months.

Cheers

Dear Kate and Kev,

I just wanted to drop a note to you to say thank you for all your help and assistance with fitting our woodburner. We really appreciate all the advice and guidance that you gave to us about choosing the right woodburner. We were really impressed with how quickly and efficiently you fitted the burner, including fitting the chimney pot on a very windy day – thank you!

Like Logs were a pleasure to deal with and we would have no hesitation in recommending you.

Thank you for initiating us into the wonderful world of woodburner ownership!

I was thrilled to be directed to Like Logs by my friends. Just like them I am now the proud owner of a wood burning stove. The service has been brilliant from  first meeting Kev to waving goodbye at the end.  Everything was explained fully before starting the work especially the pitfalls as we didn’t have a lintel. Kev and Tom worked non stop and always cleaned up thoroughly before leaving. I highly recommend them.

I have to say I’m delighted with the fire and part of me wishes the weather wasn’t starting to heat up, I’m looking forward to winter already.  Many thanks for all the advice and the hassle free installation.

Like Logs installed a flue liner into an existing installation. They were very conscientious to work to the highest HETAS standards and advised how I should alter my installation.

They were very respectful and made very little mess considering the work carried out. All of this at a lower price than other quotes!

I highly recommend Like Logs.

I have been delighted by the service provided by Like Logs.  The installation went very smoothly, with our new stove up and running in a day.  Kev and his colleague took great pride in the quality of their work. I have not hesitation in recommending Like Logs.

‘Like Logs were super efficient and helpful in creating a beautiful and modern log burning fire and surround for us. There is no doubt they know what they are doing and I felt very happy in such experienced hands. Kev and Kate make a great team and i would happily recommend them without reserve”

Thanks again for everything

Like Logs were the second firm to survey our home for the installation of a wood burner and it was immediately evident that we had the right people and did not need to look  further. The advice was clear, informed and communicated with a passion that was very positive. The quote was lower too. When the day came Kevin and Tom were efficient in everything they did, protecting our home before they started and doing the work with a minimum of fuss. What a brilliant job ! Looks great, works fantastically. We thoroughly recommend Like Logs to anyone who wants a warmer home this winter.

Kevin – thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job. It really does look superb and has changed the feel of our whole house. The fire works a treat. Just a shame we haven’t got room for another fire somewhere else in the house.

Paul Crossley

 

I found Like Logs to be very professional and reliable, they always responded to my emails.

Kev was very experienced. He did an excellent job installing our new log burner and I was very confident of his experience and knowledge. He didn’t cut corners and I felt secure in the his knowledge and experience and that my new log burner was going to be fitted to a very high standard and to a high level of safety

Julie

 

It has been burning near constantly since finished, it’s wonderful.

We’re confident that no one else would have done as good a job! It seemed as though the whole process was motivated by Kev’s love of wood burning stove being the heart of the home. He cared that the finished product was as safe, efficient and the highest standard of craftsmanship possible.

Awesome job, thanks again.

We wanted to say a big thank you. We can’t recommend Like Logs highly enough. Having found you on the Internet you exceeded our expectations on every level. And our cold sitting room has been transformed!

Please feel free to quote us!

Kev came to visit us to advise on installing a log burner into our Georgian home.  We already had an idea of the type of log burner that what we wanted,  but Kev asked us to consider another option.  I am so pleased that we did.  We decided on an Elgar C13.  It has completely changed the atmosphere in our home, the house is so snug after an hour of being lit.  The installation  job wasn’t as straightforward as we had hoped,  Kev found a joist had been rammed into the chimney cavity,  but he took this in his stride and got the issue sorted without any fuss.  The room had been freshly  decorated shortly  before the installation, but everything was  covered and there was no need to re decorate afterwards, they were very clean.

It was a breath of fresh air dealing with Kev and Kate. Very rarely do you find people who take ownership of a job, and just get it done,  which is exactly what they did,  and on time.  I can’t recommend the services of “like Logs” highly enough.  I have recommended them to many friends.   My 5 year old Labrador is also very grateful to Kev for installing the Log burner.

We had 3 or 4 quotes for installing a wood burning stove. Kevin from Like Logs was the first and best. The pricing was extremely competitive, but what really clinched the deal was his professionalism, background knowledge and passion for wood burning stoves in general.

He recommended a stove that suited our needs perfectly. We are really pleased with the result- a great addition to our home and such a beautiful looking investment! Kevin not only reassured us safety-wise with his depth of knowledge, but was polite, on time, efficient and incredibly clean and diligent in his work.

We’ll  be recommending LikeLogs to our friends and whomever will listen to our new interest in this renewable energy. I now have a new hobby… collecting wood! Much more fun than paying those hefty gas bills.

Kev did an amazing job fitting our Charnwood CFour, his artistic eye and attention to detail really made the difference. Kev worked so hard to get all our preparation done on time, happily coping with unexpected developments. Kev was a joy to work with, very punctual and polite. we would recommend Like Logs highly. Thanks Kev…

Pete and Jen – Clapton

 

We are really pleased with our woodburner – which was fitted with minimal fuss and works brilliantly! Got very good advice on what kind of stove to get to make it work in the very small space we have – and it’s made this winter far more enjoyable…

Katharine – Clapton

 

Kev recommended a stove that fits in my room perfectly. I am so pleased with it, it looks beautiful and my formerly cold living room is now lovely and very warm. The work was done efficiently, cleanly and with a very good finish. The pricing was very reasonable and Kev’s passion was inspiring.

I am recommending LikeLogs to my friends and all who will to listen to me going on about the joys of a wood burning stove!

Anna – Holloway

 

When Kev turned up for a site visit he was polite, enthusiastic about stoves and I could tell he has an artistic eye. I didn’t bother getting other quotes as I knew he understood what I wanted aesthetically and I was at ease with him working in my home.

Like Logs could install any stove I wanted as they don’t sell stoves, but they do help with recommendations. I have never looked back, my stove really is the heart of my home. I light it as soon as get in from work. Thanks so much Kev and Kate.

Beth – Walthamstow

 

Like logs were great. Kev took care of the whole process, from ripping out our old gas fire to fitting a new hearth and plastering the chimney breast. Our stove is ace we love it. Getting the stove is only step one the fun doesn’t stop there… Kev managed to convince my wife that I needed to buy a chainsaw and axe (Kev even helped me with this…he loves it) now I have the best time sorting out my logs.

We don’t Like Logs, we love them.
