Hi. Having bought a woodburning stove and paid for the installation from a purportedly reputable company in Bergerac, (English owned), it has almost caused our house to go up in flames! Melted walls, charred ceiling beams, Purchase here at your own risk.
We approached the said company days later for help and advice, and were offered no assistance whatsoever, so had to employ a builder to come in and rectify the situation by building a firebrick wall behind the flue and a concrete plinth between the ceiling beams at a massive expense. The said company has since told us that there are NO regulations in France how woodburners are installed, but this is not what a seperate builder and heating engineer (who used to fit woodburners) have advised.
Purchase your fire at your own risk, and pray that you have adequate house insurance.
For further details of this company, please PM me and spread the word.
