In August I bought a wood burning stove from B&Q they gave me the number for their home fitting service, On Monday I phoned them to be told'' sorry mam we do not install wood burning stoves! There started a long journey to find someone who would even if they did not sell me the stove. After 2 months I finally reached someone who gave me Lee's number. He lives in Bournemouth but was still interested and very pleasant he gave me an estimate on the phone, Lee came and looked at the house and we discussed where it would go in the living room and how it would be done. A date was set for the18th December 2015 8.30am. The flue was delivered at 08.15 on the 18th and Lee arrived as the Van was leaving. It was a trouble free day for me, they took care of everything all I had to do was clear the space in the spare bed room and living room and make tea's. it was a fantastic job very well done at half the price other installation company's had given me, I love my wood burning stove its on daily, I can't thank you enough Lee.

We chose LDC Renewables to replace a stainless steel flue that had fallen into a state of disrepair after 30 years of use.

The work was carried out very professionally, on time and to the stated budget. We were very impressed by the punctuality and hard work put in to make sure the job was finished on time and with the minimum of fuss.

LDC Renewables pointed out that our log burner had not been installed properly and remedial work was carried out, without extra cost, to make sure the flue was safe and met with safety regulations. Now our log burner works perfectly, much better than ever before, and we are benefitting as it burns more efficiently, as the manufacturer (Aarrow) intended.

The installation and associated work was carried out expertly and I would recommend LDC Renewables to anyone.

I found Lee's company online, amongst others, and chose to use him because he was courteous, helpful, turned up on time and at a time convenient to me when he came to give a quote. He explained in detail how things worked and why, which I was able to understand.
The work was carried out in good time and at a competitive price. He did a fantastic job installing a flue for a very awkward chimney and I am now reaping the benefits of a cosy log burner. I thoroughly recommend Lee to anybody needing chimney related work.

After searching the internet for recommendations and listening to numerous referrals, we decided to commission Lee and LDC …………to help us with a long planned wood burning stove installation. A short phone call was followed really quickly by a site survey where Lee proved particularly helpful in providing expert advice on stove selection and requirements for the fireplace. As an avid DIY’er I was convinced I could prepare the fireplace opening myself and when I came across a couple of unexpected obstacles a short phone call to Lee where his expert advice soon had me back on track.
On the day of the installation Lee and his enthusiastic assistant arrived after a short delay due to an RTA on the motorway which they were unfortunately stuck behind but most importantly, they had taken the time to phone me and keep me updated on the delay and their progress; very thoughtful and considerate. The installation of chimney liner, pot hanger, CO alarm, data plate, stove pipe and adapters, provision of HETAS certification and the notification to the local authorities went ahead without any hiccups even though it was one of the wettest and windiest days of the winter. At the end of the day I was left with a fully fitted working stove, toasty warm house which was cleaner than when they arrived.
Top notch service and I highly recommend this team

Lee came highly recommended. He completed work installing a multi fuel wood burner with back boiler, completing integration with a Torrent Gledhill open vented thermal store, lining a challenging chimney and certifying for HETAS. I found him to be very professional, efficient, reliable, knowledgeable, taking time to explain what was needed and why. His quote was clear and he kept me informed as to his timing. He and his team took great care to protect carpets etc. It was a pleasure having him carry out the work.

Lee and his team constructed a chimney breast and installed a Stovax multi fuel wood burner with a back boiler running three radiators. He provided a comprehensive and competitive quote and accommodated our (my wife's) quest for perfection and requests for last-minute changes such as the addition of an arch, with the utmost courtesy. He was very knowledgeable and gave us useful advice on how to optimise the performance of the system. Overall, the installation was very professional and we would highly recommend him to anyone considering any sort of chimney-related work.

I found Lee through a neighbour as he was putting in a log burner down the road, so I was lucky to find him. Lee did a great job on fitting log burner and flue for me in March. I had no chimney or flue access so Lee had to think out of the box and it all came together fantastically, up through my lounge ceiling through bedroom (boxed in for safety reasons) into the roof. Lee and team worked very hard to make it all happen for me and I have been enjoying it ever since. . Lee and Team were cool and calm over any issues that came up and it was sorted and a good 2 days work well done and excellent price. Although weather improving I am still sneaking in the odd burn when the temperature drops. Thanks Lee and Josh you are fab.

As a young couple on our first house project we only dreamed of having a log burner. I luckily came across a job where Lee had fitted a burner and fell in love with his work so much that I had to enquire. He was very attentive and arranged to have a look. We then got a couple of other quotes and there was a clear difference between who was trying to make a quick earner and rip us off with top of the range models. Lee helped us with every step, as we built up the chimney breast ourselves. He also managed to sort us out with a burner which was very suitable for the period of our home. Flexibility and communication were on point throughout the job. We are chuffed with our new log burner and are wishing away the summer to enjoy those winter nights.
Posted by Kelly and John on
Having initially called lee in for a quote to drop the liner and install the burner, he mentioned that his team could carry out the brickwork to our chimney breast too, something that we were mid way thru but time was an issue for us. We eventually gave in and called Lee back to price for the complete job, very efficient, prompt on replying to my many questions and messages. My opened chimney breast was not equal so Lee and the team equalled it up, plastered it, laid the harth, dropped the flue and installed the stove. A complete job! Just looking forward to the colder weather now to test it out! Thanks Lee and team, first class job

Lee and his team did a brilliant job installing a double sided stove in our thatched cottage. They extended the height of the chimney to meet regulations and filled the chimney with vermiculite. The fireplace needed remodelling somewhat.... Lee was very flexible and happy to incorporate both his and our ideas. The end result is better than we could have hoped for!

Lee and his team are friendly, respectful, and hard working.

I would definitely recommend them to others.

Thanks guys!

I have been looking for someone to fit a logburner and check an old aga for me for a while, it seemed to be too much effort for the four or five companies I had spoken to previous to calling LDC. When I called Lee he came and gave me a quote on the day I called, he gave me advice and seemed to genuinely care.

Fitting took a day and was all very professional from laying sheets and cleaning up after to the finished product it was fantastic service.
Posted by Brian Cooley on
Lee is in great demand and rightly so - from start to finish he did an exemplary job and educated me about the use and maintenance of my new stove along the way. Fitted to time and budget and another very satisfied customer. Highly recommended and I will be passing his details on to any of my friends who want an excellent job, at a reasonable price, completed by some very nice people. Great job
guys & THANKS !!!

I would like to thank Lee and his assistant, Josh, for carrying out a project yesterday, (Dec 23rd 2016) which was fitted in before Christmas, as he had confirmed, despite being so, so busy. The job was completed with great workmanship, advice, friendliness, politeness and at an affordable price - all with which I would thoroughly recommend.
I am so relieved that I stumbled across Lee's website here, as I hadn't thought of searching on HETAS own website. I do so much research when searching for the right tradesman at the right price. (Like I would for Tripadvisor when searching for that right hotel!) I wanted to make a feature of my opened-up fireplace, that exposed 'not the best-looking brickwork' on the three walls of the fireplace, has old, oak beams fitted a year ago and in the New Year, I will have an electric, log-effect stove installed,
When Lee first visited my home to acess the job, I was so pleased to have professional advice, like having the brickwork rendered, which would really improve the look and that Lee could lay a hearth and where to choose it from. I went to Millers, Sand & Gravel merchants in Ferndown, where I chose a piece of Indian sandstone, that Lee collected on the morning of the job. The redundant, gas flue was removed, the chimbey cowl was capped with the appropriate part for ventilation, the chimney was swept, boarded up with fire-resistant material, which was insulated, which was advised by Lee if I wanted to keep any noise lowered and finally, he laid a lovely piece of individual, quarried, Indian sandstone as the hearth. Suggestions were made during the work being carried out, including, 'from which part of the sandstone slab would I like cut?' And 'how far would I like the hearth coming out to?' Etc, etc.
So, well done Lee and thank you again - I would definitely recommend him to use for any chimney/fireplace-related project.
Sue Sawyer.

We are so grateful to Lee and his fantastic team who fitted our wood burner before xmas, as promised, despite their incredibly packed shedual.
We were really impressed with the friendly and honest customer service Lee provided and were incredibly pleased with the level of workmanship achieved, which was delivered on time and to the quoted price.
At present my husband and I are restoring our newly acquired Edwardian cottage and have had a number of issues with people from the building trade. Lee was the absolute opposite of our previous experiences and we would whole-heartedly recommend him and his team to anyone considering having a stove fitted. Lee made the whole experience completely stress free and we couldn’t be happier with the end result.
A really exemplary job, thanks so much Lee.

Lee and his team insulated my chimney before Christmas.
I had contacted lee in the vain hope that the work could be done quickly before Christmas Day as I had been told by the insurance company that I was no longer able to use the stove, leaving a the prospect of a chilly festive period!
Lee quickly responded with a competitive quote, and sound advice. The job itself was carried out in a day in a conscientious, professional manner by a team who were without exception polite, friendly and courteous.
Following the completion of the work Lee was happy to help liaising with my insurance company to ensure all their safety regulation had been met.
I would absolutely recommend Lee and his team
Thanks for a great job

I was recommended Lee by a family member to do some work in a newly purchased property. Lee initially visited and was full of knowledge, he listened to what we wanted to do and gave both advice and his own personal opionion which we really liked . Thanks to Lee and his colleague we are now proud owners of a lovely little wood burner which has been perfectly fitted including hearth. Lee's honest advice really helped with our decision making and we couldn't be happier with the service provided . I will be recommending his services to my friends.
Posted by Richard Burnett on
We have a Firebelly FB1 in our property that had been fitted without a flu liner the condensation would drip down the chimney through the fire putty onto the top of the hot stove causing a terrible mess and smell.
Lee visited and quoted a very reasonable price to fit a flu liner to stop the condensation, check and HETAS certify the system.
All the above was done very cleanly and professionally with a mornings work.
We couldn't be happier, the stove is now in use every day in the cold weather.
We would recommend LDC log burners to anyone wanting a quick, inexpensive, professional job.

We found Lee provided a good all round professional service. From Lee's initial visit and discussing various options of what could be done, recommending various suppliers for materials, stove manufacturer selection etc. Lee did a great installation at our property, very clean and efficient job inside and outside the house on the roof. The stove now is the centrepiece of our new look lounge. Now cozy and warm, and very happy.
Thank you Lee.

The day the guys came to fit the Stove it was raining, realising this they were meticulous in keeping the inside of the house clean from muddy boots, dust sheets were put down everywhere, plied with coffee and tea they worked efficiently and soon our Wood Burner was in place.

Time was spent showing us how the unit worked (We purchased a Skagen CB 800), this was much appreciated as it is our first Wood Burner.

The lads cleaned up brilliantly which is something I am always hot on when I have any work carried out on our house.

I would highly recommend LDC Log Burners, they offer a friendly, efficient service all at a good price.

Thank you LDC

Lee and his excellent team have just completed putting a double sided woodburner into our bungalow, which involved the removal of a lot of internal Puortland stone initially, then an extremely quality finish to new walls , coving, plastering and skirting board, and then the crowning glory, the installation of a free standing double sided woodburner. .
Very impressed by the quality of his work, and very importantly, his eagerness to keep us apprised at all times, so that we were well and truly in the driving seat in terms of getting what we wanted out of the work, but with the benefit of top notch advice and professional views at all stages. An extremely good and stress-free experience for us.

Lee fitted out log burner earlier this year. We had no chimney for the burner so Lee built this from scratch with a beautiful oak beam as a mantel & lovely old style brickwork surrounding the burner itself. We also wanted to be able to have our flat screen TV above the mantel, so Lee made sure all the TV wiring was enclosed in a heat resistant pipe. Amazing job, we are so pleased with everything, would thoroughly recommend, Lee couldn't be more helpful.

We are looking forward to the cold weather now, can't wait to light it for the 2nd time and enjoy

Lee and his team did a fantastic job installing our log burner. We didn't have an existing fireplace so we worked together on a plan for an inglenook fireplace with an outside chimney flue. We are really pleased with the design and overall look, and are now reaping the benefits of a very cosy fire. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Lee to anyone considering a fire place/log burner in their home.

Lee and his team installed a new flue, chimney pot and cowl to our log burner yesterday, undoing the last owner's shoddy workmanship!! The fire lit straight away. Top job and peace of mind. We can now enjoy a warm, homely safe log burner during the cold weather! Thanks! Would recommend Lee to anyone.

Lee installed a multi-fuel burner in an existing fire place and did a brilliant job. It was a a small space to work with and he did it really well. He also cleaned a chimney in another room with no mess. You would never have known he’d been! I highly recommend LDC and would certainly use them again.

Lee and his colleague installed my log burner and chimney at the weekend, and even came on Sunday so that it wasn't delayed.
They worked solidly throughout the day, taking great care to do a quality job. The finish is excellent and the fire works perfectly. I would certainly recommend them. Thank you very much Lee.

Lee & his team opened out our existing fireplace, building a new hearth and making the chimney good in the process. They fitted a Log Burner that we purchased under their guidance. They have managed to create a real focal point to our room with minimum of inconvenience to us in the process. The efficiency and cleanliness of the way they went about the job was really first class. Amazing team that take real pride in their work. We are very pleased with the finished result and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them

October 2017. I recently had the 2nd chimney in my old thatched cottage lined and a new small pale blue multi fuel burner fitted. This came about after Lee had previously removed the most enormous bird nest from my main chimney....which had caused a small fire in the fireplace. The work was completed quickly with no fuss or mess and the guys were great. I am really pleased with the end result and it’s great to have heat at the other end of the Cottage. I would highly recommend Lee and his team. Wendy

Excellent job!

Lee and Kirk provided an outstanding and personal service.

They helped with choosing the correct size and model (multi-fuel) of burner and the installation itself was quick (which bearing in mind it was just before Christmas was brilliant), efficient and clean.

We cannot recommend them highly enough.

I spoke to Lee initially to explain what we wanted, I had a chimney breast which required reopening in order to have a log burner installed.
I have wanted a log burner for years so was fairly particular about the work.
Lee discussed details with me and advised me of where I could purchase a log burner if I wanted to purchase one myself.
Lee and Kirk came up and worked solidly throughout, explaining things along the way, they were very tidy too.
I am so pleased with the final results. The kids are really pleased to have it in time for Christmas and the dogs are fans too.
All our visitors so far have commented on how cosy it looks.
Thanks to you both for a clean professional job, will definitely recommend.

We had been researching log burners for a while and with helpful advice from Lee purchased a Dean Dartmoor W5, which was installed in our snug.

Lee and his friendly team arrived promptly. They supplied and installed everything else to get the fire up and running within a few hours, including sorting out the HETAS certification and the notification to the local authorities. They also swept a second chimney in the lounge. Great service!

Our burner looks fantastic and we are really pleased with the end result.

Excellent service by Lee and his team at LDC. I can highly recommend Lee and his team without any hesitation

I recently moved into a bungalow where the chimney had leaks and had been poorly repaired by the previous owner. All in all it was a mess.
Lee came round to have a look and really appreciated his honesty. What was left of the chimney was removed and a stainless steel flue and new liner was installed. Workmanship was superb and he even have the mantle piece and Burner a once over. We now have a safe, leak-free, great looking installation.
I would absolutely recommend LDC Renewables and will definitely be getting him back for services. Thanks Lee!

I contacted LDC Logburners as the existing chimney liner for our log burner needed to be changed to an insulated liner. We wanted to install a new Twin Wall Insulated flue pipe as recommended by our insurance company and also replace the chimney pot on our roof.

I initially contacted Lee via email and he responded very quickly and requested I provided him with some pictures of the exiting flue system and chimney etc. Lee then emailed me a competitive quote and once I had accepted this, he did a quick site visit to double check the access requirements and make sure there were no hidden surprises. We then scheduled a date for the work to be completed.

Lee and his partner showed up at 08:00am exactly on time and worked extremely hard all day to get the job done. He is very courteous and professional and posses all the relevant technical qualifications and accreditation's.

At the end of the job he provided me an invoice which was exactly as per his quotation even though he had incurred an extra cost in obtaining a period chimney pot from a reclamation yard instead of providing a cheaper modern alternative.

I would highly recommend Lee and would certainly use him again.

When my insurers declared my chimney lining unsafe in the weeks approaching Christmas, I was given Lee Comer's name as the man to put things right. So I called him, even though I could imagine this was his busiest time of year. Lee listened to my description of the issue and asked me to email him some photos. Less than two days later, he phoned me back with a possible date to do the work and a quote.
Scaffolding having been erected some days earlier, Lee and his small team arrived on December 17th, as agreed. Within rather less than six hours they had removed the old lining, extended the chimney height by some ten courses of old bricks to match the existing structure, installed a new insulated lining, replaced the pot and rain baffle, removed a number of potential hazards relating to the wood-burner in my lounge, ensured all was secure, cleaned up after themselves and left. The bill, when it came the following day, was actually less than Lee's initial telephone quote. When it comes to friendly, reliable service with a human face, delivered on time and within budget, in this day and age (!), I do really recommend Lee Comer and LDC Logburners. They're simply the best.

With a property of this age there were bound to be problems, but Lee and his guys over came everything that this installation threw at them. They also fitted an inglebeam to finish off the fireplace setting. My wife and I cannot sing their praises enough, Their professionalism and attention to detail was outstanding. The end result was magnificent, and we would have no hesitation in recommending Lee, and in fact have already done so. Thanks again Lee and team, excellent job!!

Lee at LCD fitted two wood burners for us last Easter (2017) and I must say they were great. No issues, no hassle and were probably the tidiest tradespeople we have had on-site during our works. In fact, we have subsequently purchased a further wood burner and called Lee and his team back to install, and once again, it was a first class job. They certainly know how to fit and advise on wood burners and gave us some great ideas when planning. No hesitation in recommending Lee and his team.

Following my recent move I had been looking for someone to install a new Wood burner in my sitting room. I had obtained a couple of quotes and approached Lee from LDC Logburners having received a leaflet through the door.
I rang and left a message and was called back very shortly after which was followed by a visit the next day. I had a good idea of what I wanted and Lee was able to provide constructive advice and pictures of other similar installations. Having agreed on the design I was helpfully provided with a contact for a local Wood burner supplier I could visit to select a fire.
The estimate I received was competitive and a date for install was agreed. Lee Collected the Wood burner for me, arrived at the agreed time and undertook the work in the agreed timescale, within the agreed budget and with the minimum of fuss and disruption.
I am extremely pleased with finished project and would not hesitate in recommending LDC Logburners to anyone undertaking a project of this nature.

Lee, Installed my log burner at the end of November 2018. Not sure what more to say than that he simply did a fantastic job. He was very friendly and professional, I had no idea what type of log burner to get or what was involved. From coming over to advise my wife and I on what we needed to consider to the final installation and aftercare he's done everything he said he would and the price was really good value. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Lee and his team to anyone.

Having moved into a cottage with a condemned chimney/Rayburn system and facing a very cold Christmas Lee came to our rescue. His experience of working with Thatched Grade II Listed properties was invaluable. He talked us through the range of options and then left us overnight to weigh up the pros, cons and expenses. The professionalism and progress of the job was impressive - I liked the fact that the each liner section was checked and anything less than perfect swopped whilst at the suppliers. The rain was horrendous during the outside work but enough was done to give us a working Rayburn/chimney and warmth. The team then came back on another day to ‘make good’ the brickwork and cement that had suffered during the rain. The care of our property, tidiness at the end of day and good humour of the team were all impressive. I have no hesitation in recommending Lee and LDC Logburners.

The work involved rebuilding part of the chimney, installing a new insulated flue liner and a new wood burner - at times in atrocious weather conditions !! We are more than satisfied with the work carried out by Lee - who stuck by his original quote despite having to deal with unforeseen problems, carried out the work in a thoroughly professional manner left no residuals to clear up and always kept us informed of progress.

LDC Logburners were recommended to us when we recently discovered that our flue liner needed replacing. We are so glad that we listened to advice and went with them. Our woodburner and chimney are now in a far better (and safer) state than they were previously. Lee is kind and incredibly generous with his time - he has sorted out a variety of issues that had been missed by the previous installer and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing work done. Thank you so much - the work looks incredible and knowing that we can use the woodburner safely is a major relief, especially in a thatch cottage!

Just lit my log burner for the first time in my new home. Having found problems with it just after we moved in, Lee quoted to get everything working again and compliant with current regulations. It was important to me that I find someone who understood the regulations of log burners in thatched properties and Lee knew everything needed.

He also raised our chimney stack to comply with insurance requirements, even sourcing an old chimney pot from a reclamation yard in advance and making sure the bricks matched the original ones.

Looks great and all works, but most importantly, I felt totally confident in Lee and Kirk’s workmanship which was really important.

A great job done well and at a reasonable price by two nice guys – I would highly recommend.

Lee was in regular communication with us and agreed dates for the work to be completed and stuck to the dates agreed. He was available beforehand to answer questions we had about the wood burner we purchased separately. Whilst the installation was being completed the team were extremely polite, tidy and professional. The installation went as planned and we are really pleased with what they completed. Lee even came back for no charge to move the burner out so that we could paint behind it and to patch up some cracks which appeared as the fire board dried out. We would definitely recommend LDC Log Burners and will be using them again to sweep the chimney. The whole process was straightforward, trouble free and Lee is a very honest and genuine man!

Lee and his team came the week before Xmas 2020. They installed two log burners in a day. Fully lining the chimneys in this old cottage. The inglenook had not been used for decades so lots of tar to clear. The main living room took a small log burner into an existing and working open fireplace. By 1pm the inglenook was useable and wood was burning brightly. The whole job was completed by 4 pm as it became dark. Both burners were working very well before the left. All chimney stacks had cowl’s on. Closing off the unused chimneys. Every bit of rubbish was removed and the rooms hoovered clean. No mess to clear and the pallett’s the burners were delivered on were used to set fires. The team worked all day from the moment of arrival and so appreciative of teas and coffee’s. They were polite and respectful and highly motivated towards doing a good job. Full compliance to current regulations and registration of the burners is all covered in the installation.
What has been particularly good, has been Lee’s after sales care. Lee texted a couple of days following the installations to see how it was going. He has assured us that if there are any problems we can text him and he will visit to troubleshoot. Not that we have had any. Grateful thanks and happy new year. The house is transformed.

We commissioned LDC Log burners to install two log burners in our home. There were a number of (sometimes tricky) elements to the project. Lee worked with the other contractors to ensure everything ran smoothly.

The whole process from the initial site survey, selection of wood burner, liaising with the wood burner retailer, pre-installation advice and the work itself was excellent. Lee was in regular communication with us and agreed dates for the work to be completed and stuck to the dates agreed.

Lee and the team were professional and diligent in their approach. We are delighted with their work, and we would thoroughly recommend them

Lee, Kirk and Jack were a pleasure to have in our house. They did a fantastic job and we are really pleased with the finished result. We are looking forward to many years of having a warm home. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. It's a shame we don't have room for any more log burners! I look forward to continuing our relationship and having the chimneys swept each year.

Lee and his team were fantastic from start to finish. We found it difficult to find a stove fitting company that would fit the stove we wanted and with a reasonable price, in our area. I met Lee accidentally in Dorset when he was fitting my brother in laws wood burner, we got chatting and he said he could fit the stove we wanted. We are so grateful as he his based in Dorset and travelled to Berkshire to do the work. He was extremely helpful in the runup to the work being done, answering and questions and helping us pick the type of stove we wanted. My partner also wanted to build our own bespoke hearth which Lee was happy to work around.
We wanted the burner fitted before Christmas and all fitters in our area were booked months ahead, Lee also being very busy fitted us in where he could. I would highly recommend LDC logburners to everyone!

Lee and Kirk did a fantastic job installing my new logburner. They were professional, punctual and very friendly and I have no hesitation in recommending their workmanship to anybody.They explained in detail what they were doing and their quotation was very fair and reasonable. I'm very pleased with the amount of heat projected by the stove and they also referred me to a local log supplier who delivered promptly.

From the first contact Lee was extremely helpful and knowledge with all things stove and stove boiler heating systems related.

We wanted quite a complex stove boiler installation which would link up to our loft air ventilation system through duct heaters to warm the incoming air to the upstairs rooms and a radiator in our conservatory.

All the companies we approached with this idea, seemed to lack any knowledge of the stove boilers and scared to undertake the job. From our first chat with lee, we were made to feel very relaxed and understood what we wanted.

He was extremely knowledge on the system and gave us a lot of new ideas and advise on how he would install it.

Throughout the installation Lee and his team were brilliant, well organised and made minimal mess. They also kept us updated the whole time and kept us apart of any decision that had to be made.

Since the installation, our upstairs has been nice and warm. Our conservatory that we use as a play room now has a new radiator that also links up to our stove which has made a huge difference to the temperature and has made the room a lot more useable through the winter. We also now have a lovely modern looking fireplace.

The system works brilliantly! We had a few very little teething problems at the beginning when working everything out but Lee was always at the end of phone with loads of advise and happy to explain everything.

We would highly recommend lee and his team at LDC Logburners.

Superb work by Lee and his team fitting our new log burner. Nothing was too much trouble - fitting the fire, electrical work and even wall mounting our television. Huge thanks ????

We were recommended to this company by a lovely neighbour.
What a good choice.
Lee and his colleague Kurt were delightful .Their attention to detail and experience made everything easy especially for me who knew nothing about Log burners.They went to great lengths to explain the details
Then it came to buy a Log burner .Which one and where ?.Again they were on the case so helpful in these challenging times..
Their work was amazing just couldn’t believe how hard they both worked.
Delighted with the results they arrived with dust covers so worry not about the mess.
Then it came to logs again Lee and Kurt came to the rescue am sure it was not in their remit .
These two deserves a pat on the back I would certainly recommend them.

We are absolutely delighted with our new log burner and the installation of it.

We have got to know Lee via our neighbour and the excellent work that he has completed at their home.
We use to have an open fire but after seeing our neighbours log burner we decided that was the way forward for us. Lee came round and inspected the area that we required the log burner to fit in and he gave us excellent advice as to what would be best for our small sitting room. We then received our quote which we were very happy with.

Lee arranged everything for us, the log burner, the scaffolding that was required for our very tall chimney and the date for the installation.
On the day they turned up on time, exactly as promised and they both got on with the installation, Lee and Jack are friendly and very courteous and it was a pleasure having them here. They are professionals at their job and also extremely tidy workers, I was also amazed that there was no mess for me to clear up afterward. The installation was actually quicker than I thought it would be.

Once the log burner was installed, Lee also took the time to light it and show me exactly how everything worked and gave me advice on how to keep it at its best.
We thoroughly recommend Lee and his team they are total professionals, reliable, friendly and excellent workers.

Thank you Lee, we love our log burner and only wish we had done this sooner.

LDC Log Burners were recommended to us by friends following their own installation and Lee didn’t disappoint.
Lee came around to conduct an assessment of the works and helped us with choosing the right log burner suitable for our fireplace. There was no element of Lee trying to make us spend anymore money than we needed too. Very friendly, helpful with an exceptional level of customer service.
Lee then arranged well in advance an installation date with excellent communication in between to support us as we awaited the arrival of our Ecosy + 5KW Signature Wide log burner.
Lee and Jack arrived timely on the day of installation and got on with the job very quickly. By late afternoon the new log burner was in and Lee was kind enough to give us a demonstration of what was required when using a log burner as this had been our first ever.
Everything was left clean and tidy at the end of the day.
It was the best money we have spent in a very long time, not only does it look magnificent in our fireplace/home, it produces an amazing level of heat and comfort.
Lee is a real people’s person. He’s so friendly and helpful with his attention to detail and immaculate presentation of work being second to none.
We highly recommend the professionalism of LDC Log Burners (Lee), thank you so much.

We purchased a wood burning stove from Saltfire in Wareham for my wife's parents who unfortunately have not been in the best health recently. My wife's father had always wanted a wood burning stove and has we already had one, we understood why he would want one as they do help you to relax and unwind after a tiring day.

We had the wood burner, but nobody to install it, on a trip for business I saw a sign for a wood burner installer outside a private house, I stopped off at the address and discussed installs with Lee's wife who was very welcoming and accommodating.

Lee called me, we discussed the requirements and the date was set. On the day of install Lee and his colleague Kirk arrived prompt and implemented the install in to the lodge for my Wife's parents.

We have only had the wood burner for one night, but my wife and her parents are over the moon, the stove is perfect and the install was professional and as expected.

We would highly recommend Lee, he is efficient, professional and completed the job over and above our expectations.

Thank you

Tina & Steve

Lee was amazing with his advice to us. His 40 years in the industry clearly shows. We followed hi advice to take out our living gas fire with no chimney and install a log burner and new external block chimney.
Lee and his team were a pleasure to have in our home. Clean, polite, informative and a very high standard of work. I will sing their praise from the rooftop. Great fire, looks great. Many many thanks, Lee, Kirk and Jack

I came across LDC while researching on line for wood burning stoves to purchase and to have fitted. We had a living gas stove which was very good but when the cost of gas shot up thought we would have it changed for a real wood burning stove. Lee came and had a look, gave us a very good price and talked us through the job, and recommended a local supplier of stoves, which is who we used.
Lee and Kirk arrived on a very windy day and work was carried out to a very high standard and very clean and tidy. The whole job took a day and a half which included the third member of the team, Jack arriving to do some brick work. All in all highly recommended.
Many thanks Lee and team.

I was recommended two companies through our street that had had their gas fires removed and installed a log burner in which we wanted to do the same. I got two quotes but decided to go with Lee and LDC as he was super helpful about explaining the process when he came round to quote, interested and very knowledgable as well as being reasonably priced.
We would recommend Lee and Kurt as the work was great, done in a timely manner and area kept clean and tidy afterwards. They always asked us what we wanted before any big decision and really listened to what we wanted. Lee even helped us out when we had plumbing issues during their time with us and he went and ordered a part to fix the problem! Great job guys and see you in a year for a chimney sweep! :) Highly recommended.

We would strongly recommend Lee and his team. The installation of our wood burner wasn't easy and required a scaffold tower and ladders to reach the chimney of our old Georgian house. Notwithstanding, the installation was completed within five hours, with the minimum of inconvenience and absolutely no mess. Both Kirk and Jack have to be commended for their friendly help and useful advice.............we should have done this years ago!

Lee and his team fitted a log burner for us 3 years ago. All work was excellently fulfilled on time and on budget. A year later, Lee came back to sweep chimney.
We told him we were having an extension built. He offered to quote, which he subsequently did. Quote was accepted.
Work commenced on the day arranged. All his team were professional and friendly and extremely tidy, many passers by also commented on how tidy the site was during construction. We are absolutely delighted with the finished project.

Regards to Lee and his dream team.
Adge & Lynn. Ringwood.

Lee was recommeded to us by our neighbours after we moved into our new house in 2020. This year we went ahead with the installation of our log burner. The job was a bit more complicated than expected as the existing outdated and, as it turned out, very solidly built structure around the original fire place was more involved than originally thought and resulted in much hard work, rubble and dust.

Lee and Kirk remained professional throughout all the unexpected hard work. Lee kept us informed throughout and sought our opinions regularly whilst offering his own expert advice, which we very much appreciated. We now have a more spacious sitting room and a lovely log burner, so thank you very much Lee and Kirk.

I can highly recommend Lee's professionalism, talents and good nature!
