I approached Former Glory having read the previous reviews which were all very good. Martin has transformed a very basic and frankly horrible fireplace into a beautiful and classic oak and granite addition. I had to leave the house mid morning, came back in the afternoon and when I came home they were clearing up. It took my breath away! The cleaning that I was left with was merely dust settling but everything that could be covered with dust sheets had been. Martin even ordered me a new grate and ash pan from the original manufacturers which he has promised to deliver to me. I can honestly say I have never had work done that I have been happier with, and I would recommend Former Glory unreservedly. Thank you Martin for a brilliant job, if I could give you six stars I would.
I had my stove fitted yesterday by Martin and garv and I am over the moon with everything. The chaps turned up early ready for work . They were both extremely polite and friendly with a great customer service ethic . Even though I have no carpets in my house yet they insisted on dust sheeting everywhere. It was cleaner when they left then when they started . The fireplace looks superb and everything is done by the book no corners cut . Any questions I had were answered in a clear way and I can't speak anymore highly about their professionalism. I would highly recommend this company for any fireplace needs to family , friends anybody who is looking installs , cleans whatever they are spot on ??????
We genuinely cannot recommend these guys highly enough.They gave a highly competitive quote on lining our chimney and fitting a new multi fuel burner. On the day, they ensured everything was covered, working around my temporary office as they went, explained everything they were doing and gave us great hints and tips going forward. Polite, professional, and even came back to check out a new noise we were hearing afterwards. Cleared up everything afterwards and even plastered a couple of little holes for us. No hesitation in recommending Martin and Galv to anyone and everyone in need of anything chimney and fireplace related. Great work and many thanks!
Martin and his son fitted a multi burner along with related chimney and fire surround work. As previous reviews have stated, prior to fitting they listened to what we wanted, gave great advice and a very reasonable quote. They kept us informed at each step, worked incredibly hard and cleared any mess etc. They showed great attention to detail and we are thrilled with the results! Most importantly along with being reliable (a miracle in our experience with 'tradesmen' ) they were both really lovely chaps who were a pleasure to have in our home - thank you! Mr and mrs o
Fantastic!!! Martin and his son fit our multi stove today and were thrilled with the result. From the start Martin has worked hard to provide us with the fire place we wanted, he gave us great recommendations and ideas. All work has been completed in just one day to a very high standard and for a great price. They have left the living room spotlessly clean, their both very friendly, very hard working and I would recommend Former Glory to anyone who is considering a fire place improvement. Thanks again for a great job. Kyle & Leanne
Martin fitted a fireplace brought with us from our old home into our new home. We are very pleased with the result. Our chimney sweep recommended Martin and we are pleased that he was able to do the work for us. He came out quickly to give us a quote, which we had back the same day, along with a start date. He completed the job in a day for a reasonable price. Despite it being a dusty job, he left the house clean. He went about the work in a professional but friendly way. We would recommend A former Glory.
Thank you so much to Martin and his son Galveston for their amazing work! I would highly recommend them. They did an incredible job on installing a fireplace and a hearth for us and we are so pleased with the end result! The standard and finish of their work is amazing and our house was always left immaculate at the end of their working day. They are both such lovely people and very reliable and I would recommend them to anyone. I wouldn't go anywhere else now! Thank you again. Lauren and Michael.
Martin & Galveston did an fantastic job, Woodburner looks awesome. As some others have mentioned they are very reliable, I went off for work left the home to them & when I came back it was all done no mess left everything was neat & clean worth to mention they are cheaper than some other installers around, I took quotes from nearly all of them some are complete rip off. Use Martin if you want a wood burner installed, I can almost guarantee you will be very happy with his work.
We recently had a woodburning stove installed by Martin. It only took a day and a half (and part of that time was running after our dog when he escaped!). The stove is brilliant-I love it. The guys were polite and friendly and cleaned up after themselves when they had finished. It was quite a big job as we don't have a chimney, but it wasn't a problem at all. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone else. A fantastic job, good value for money and a very happy customer.
Fantastic service by Martin...I just bought an old Victorian house and wanted to make an existing cast iron decorative fireplace into a working one.. From Martin’s first visit I could tell his passion and knowledge about his trade then I couldn’t go wrong... I would not hesitate to recommend ‘A Former Glory’, as was I by a friend, because of there professionalism, knowledge and cleanliness..... Thanks lads....
We have just had our flue lined and an Ariel fire fitted. Great care was taken to keep the carpets and furniture covered. The fireplace opening was painstakingly adjusted to receive the new inset stove with the result that the fire now fits like a glove. A test burn was very impressive. Team work was most professional and the job completed in just a few hours. I have no complaints about the standard of workmanship and am very satisfied with the work completed. Well done.
