Woodburner installation cost – "Erm, say that again?"
Will your twin wall flue be boxed in as it goes through your bedroom? If so, that may be stud and board with skim finish.
Is your roof pitched or flat?
What hearth plate is specified or wanted by you?
Where are you?
i.e. more info before comment.
We generally allow for one day labour for two people to fit a stove and twin wall.Posted 4 years agono_eyed_deerMember
Sounds like a good deal to me. Mine was £900 all in – just for a liner fitting to the chimney and stove, @ about prob about £750 labour, for a straight standard chimney-thingy. Took the guy from about 9am – 6pm to do it.
It is bloody expensive, but then again, I wouldn’t have the nerve to do it myself. (Or be able to do it legally!)Posted 4 years ago
Sound fair enough, we didn’t get much change out of £4k for a similar sounding job, except out flue goes up the outside wall.
Flue is very expensive. This is the type of job though where you don’t want to go with just the cheapest quote, you really should go on reference / recommendation as well.
Don’t be afraid to haggle though. If you have a price in mind, make it a fixed price and tell the supplier that. worked for us (even though our guy came back after the job and said it would be £500 more than the quote. We had a blunt conversation and I told him to jog on)Posted 4 years ago
The flue will be behind a metal guard as we want it to act as a radiator for our bedroom. Hearth plate will be stone of some variety, and the roof is pitched. We need to go tall on the flue above the roof due to its proximity with the apex of the roof. North wales BTWPosted 4 years agobedmakerSubscriber
I’m doing something very similar at the mo. £2850 without the stove so that sounds about right.
People tend to have a look at online chimney, around £100 a metre, then look at their height, say 8M so assume the chimney costs around £800.
It’s all the other bits n bobs you’ve listed that really add up though.
Best way to save money is to leave some bits out, or better still do it yourself. Really, how hard can it be??

Just received a quote for the installation of an ILD wood stove (£990) into our living room. There’s no hearth, chimney etc so it’s a double skinned flue going throught the ceiling, into (through) our bedroom, then out the roof, so the quote includes a direct feed air vent, all storm collars, cowl, brackets, radiation shield (eh?), floor spacers, CO alarm. All this comes to £3810 inc vat.
Does that sound about right? Labour is being listed at £760 ex vat.
We have a max budget of £3500, so l’ve got back in touch with the fitters to see what they can suggest. I knew it would be an expensive do but l nearly fell off my chair when l saw it!Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
Lots of assumptions being made to come up with that figure, no
and I would assume assumptions for you to disagree, no
If you wish to disagree why not just say so and give your reason as we are both making assumptions
On this thread some one pointed out the stuff costs £800 so at trade it is pretty hard to get the cost at £1500 so over £2 k “profit”..I was being conservative if anything , no ?
Whether it is worth this or not is another point.Posted 4 years agoslackaliceMember
Businesses exist to employ people and make a profit. Nothing wrong with haggling and they can of course say “no”, so you’ve nothing to lose by asking.
Pricing appears to be in the ball park and you are assured of it being undertaken by a suitably qualified and experienced installer.Posted 4 years ago
