Review by Thomas S. in Monte Sereno, CA

  Project: Install a Gas, Pellet, or Wood Stove
Comments: I bought a wood burning fireplace insert at a local fireplace store and contracted with them to install the stove and the required chimney pipe. After about 2 weeks of trying to deal with the store's installers, I finally decided that their work was a disaster. I contacted Ryan and explained my problem..He came to my house, looked at the work and agreed it was no good. He gave me a reasonable quote and set a date to fix it. He and his helper came on the assigned day, removed the bad work, installed the correct chimney pipe and assembled the stove in just a few hours time. Ryan is very competent and friendly. I highly recommend him.

Review by a Neighbor in Menlo Park, CA

  Project: Repair a Pre-Fabricated Fireplace Unit (Gas)
Comments: Ryan had to come twice to our house to diagnose, order part & install. On time, on budget (very reasonable), even vacuumed before leaving. Answers emails promptly (from his blackberry). He was also recommended by a local fireplace dealer. A great contractor.

Review by a Neighbor in Los Gatos, CA

  Project: Repair a Pre-Fabricated Fireplace Unit (Non-Gas)
Comments: Ryan got back to me ASAP and came out to the house within a couple days (and we're a long way from his main territory). He did a good analysis of the problem, and recommended as a first step an inexpensive fix that he felt might alleviate the problem. He executed the fix within days. It would've been easy to not come out so far from home and/or to recommend a more costly approach than he did. I liked his honesty, knowledge, and enthusiasm. Don't know yet if this fix will work, but if not, we'll call him back.
