What People are Saying


“Great place to deal with”

Great place to deal with! I did a lot of shopping around and this place had the best deal. What a great fireplace I got! The installation was so professional. It’s refreshing to see that great customer service still exists!

“Those guys are awesome”

“I was told by a manufacture to go see Distinctive Fires. I drove to the store and was greeted by an honest person named Dominic who helped me pick a fireplace that would work for us. We ended up with the Marquis Bentley version. What a beauty! Simon installed it with his crew. Those guys were awesome. They said what they were going to do and they did it. You made this painless. You guys are gents and people of your word. I’ll be back!”
