Elegant fireplace, expertly advised and installed

My wife Ann and I just moved to Cobourg a couple of months ago. We own a mid-century bungalow which we are excited to put our mark on and make our own.

One of the things we have dreamed about for many years is a nice gas fireplace, so after only being here for two weeks, we went to Friendly Fires on King Street, right downtown, to get things in motion quickly, especially given the supply chain issues Canada-wide.

Hayley gave us a thorough introduction to gas fireplaces, demonstrated several models in the showroom, and then us walked us through all the technical and aesthetic options possible with the units we liked. She has a broad knowledge base, and explains it easily and personably. It was easy to settle on one that was perfect for us.

We had not expected our unit to be ready until February, but here we are in mid-January and it's all installed and we are loving it!

Installers Jamie and Bobby set it up precisely according to code and the extensive documentation in the manual. We were delighted to work with them, they were very friendly and patient in briefing us on what they were going to do before getting to work, going over some options that we could choose for our particular setup. They installed the fireplace unit and hooked it all up smoothly and efficiently, then spent time with us to walk us through how to operate it, and recommended certain settings and a follow-up maintenance schedule. We were most impressed by their knowledge base, they know their stuff. A super smooth, no-prob install.

We have a guy coming in on Monday to do the framing surround, and he will be well briefed by the manual's detailed documentation.

It's an elegant unit, and so relaxing to sit in front of and savour. Friendly Fires is highly recommended! We're delighted.

Money grab

2 remote settings cut totally dismantled
Knowing the requirements for temperature control with disabled people living in house young staff trying to quickly get the job done.
We had to hire a company who understood importance of temperature control settings
Cutting remote settings on 2 units because it was Friday at 450 is not cool...........

Wood Stove Purchase and Installation

My wife and I did a lot of research on wood stoves, suppliers, and installers for our cottage. While Friendly Fires isn't necessarily the cheapest, you often get what you pay for. What's most important is VALUE. That's exactly what Friendly Fires delivered.

Gene in the Peterborough showroom was awesome...and I put him through his paces, at times. The scheduling, delivery, and installation could not have been better. They sent two technicians to install our wood stove and they were as amazing as Gene. We absolutely love the stove! Thanks Friendly Fires! A+++++++++++

New Wood Stove

We visited Friendly Fires in Peterborough on a recommendation from a friend
From the initial consultation and information from James, appointment set up with Andrea, back stone installation from Matt and final wood stove installation by Jeremy and Nigel we could not be happier.
Our new stove looks amazing and everyone was very friendly and professional
Everything was done as promised, on time and on budget
They truly are "Friendly" Fires!
Great work!!

Fireplace and mantle installation

Friendly Fires did an installation for us - a modern fireplace and brick work surrounding it. We were very happy with the competitive price, and the workers who came into our home were polite and left the place perfectly clean once done. We would recommend them to anyone - small town company with great results.

BBQ Purchase

I recently purchased a BBQ from Friendly Fires in Peterborough and was extremely impressed with the service I received. The staff was very helpful and at no point in the purchase process did I feel like I was being pressured into anything. They discussed all my options with me and in the end they helped me find the BBQ that fit my budget and lifestyle. I have already recommended Friendly Fires to a couple of friends that are looking to buy a BBQ.
