Fireplace West is a small, premier gas contractor. We are two people, myself, Robin Hetherington and my young employee, gas tech, Connor Whiteside. We supply and install gas fireplaces, the big brands, Napoleon, Vermont Castings, Regency and Savannahheating.com (liinears). We are a bit of an odd couple. I’m 69, pretending to be semi-retired. I do take serious holiday time. Connor at 24, thinks he will soon be retired (lottery win, being fired, divine–, etc. The good/ bad news is that we are just busy all the time. I personally think it is because fireplacewest.ca is a such a great renovation bargain and has a great Homestars following.
Fireplace West’s timing is perfect as we are mirroring the New Home Industry where gas fireplaces are the norm. We are swapping out a lot of 80’s/90’s wood fireplaces for new gas ones, from $5600, as well as new projects. A small bathroom costs from $4,000 to $10,000; we are generally at the low end of that range with bigger Pop. We rough in a Napoleon GX36 gas fireplace for $4200 complete and a wood/gas swap out for around $5600. We are installing gas inserts, Napoleon GDIZC from $4500. All prices are supply and install plus HST.
Finishing is our strength; we have changed how gas inserts and fireplaces are installed. We make things fit, we build them in; few are plug and play. We have picked up our client’s wishes to finish a floor where they spend most of their time. It’s that new suit with an old pair of shoes where $25K is spent on a new kitchen with the 80’s wood fireplace across the room (generally less than $6K).
