To process your quotation, we need the following information from you:
- a valid email address to send your quotation to. This will be issued within 4 working days.
- a simple drawing and all measurements (in metric)
- the edging required for stone products e.g bullnose/ half-bullnose/ polished etc
- delivery postcode and contact number. If there is likely to be issues regarding accessing your property, we must be made aware of this when requesting a quotation.
Please be aware that:
- quotations are valid for 30 days
- all custom made hearths are delivered on a pallet and must be checked thoroughly before signing for safe receipt
- painted/coloured glass hearths must be lifted into place and sited with the coated side to a clean floor, free of debris
- painted/coloured glass hearths are not to be placed where there is underfloor heating as this will damage the coating
- painted hearths are easily damaged if placed paint-side-up (i.e incorrectly) and your stove should be sited on the shiny unpainted side
- stone hearths are sold unsealed. Stone sealant can be purchased from most major DIY stores.
- the surface beneath the hearth should be chemically neutral and free from active chemicals such as acid or similar, which may damage coloured/painted hearths
- please ensure hands are clean when handling all hearths to avoid staining
Note re fitting – Riven Slate
As a result of slate being split rather than cut to achieve the riven finish, the thickness level may not be consistent throughout. When siting on a wooden floor for example, we recommend the use of flexible tile adhesive should it be needed.
