I had Grate Expectations and couldn't be happier.
Customer Service
I have just had a Studio 1, CF Gas fire fitted, and it looks amazing!! The communication from Grate Expectations is first class, very efficient and professional, all the work was completed to a high standard for a very competitive price. Tai, who installed the fire is a tremendous asset to the company, he was always the consummate professional, knowledgeably, informative and above all, polite, friendly and always good humoured. Thank you Tai. I am delighted with this fire which looks incredibly realistic, from the flames to the way the wood and embers appear to spark and glow. A first class job, thanks guys. I would highly recommend this trader.
