Our old fashioned 80’s fireplace desperately needed updating, and with children and pets, an open fire wasn’t as safe as we liked. ADL completely transformed our lounge by taking the fireplace back to the blockwork, installing a multi-fuel stove, hearth, mantel, and re-building the brickwork.

We’re really pleased with the more contemporary finish, and everyone comments on how great the fireplace looks. It’s also a lot more efficient than our old open fire.

The guys at ADL were brilliant from start to finish – excellent advice, clean and tidy workers, and delivered as agreed. I’d have no problem recommending them (and already have done!).

Alan came to quote to fit a new chimney on the same day. He was quick to respond and helped me find the best stove. The fireplace was delivered with faults several times and Alan was incredibly good about it and when it eventually got delivered correctly he fitted it very nicely and cleared up any mess. He was very polite and nice to deal with. We’re really happy with the fireplace and love the feature in our living room. Would recommend Alan to anyone.

Alan had been recommended to us by a friend and we could not have been happier. Alan came to visit us initially very promptly as had been arranged. He provided us with excellent impartial advice and suggestions and his knowledge, expertise and professionalism showed from the start. Not only is he fabulous at his work he is also such a wonderful bloke!

Alan completed the installation of the fireplace to an excellent standard. It looks amazing and we are absolutely thrilled with it. Alan’s plasterer completed the plastering the following day and he was equally commendable. Both of them worked efficiently, tidily, professionally and to a standard second to none. We cannot recommend Alan enough. Thank you so very much Alan!

Alan helped us install a new Stovax wood burner, requiring a c40m chimney liner, reshaping of the opening, new lintel and new herth.

The work was completed to an excellent standard, neat and tidy, everything completed on time and to budget.

Moreover, we hit a pretty significant snag when installing the chimney liner that could not have been foreseen – a structural blockage in the chimney. Alan went away, figured out the solution, came back the next day and virtually climbed the chimney to solve!

Absolutely delighted with the installation carried out by Alan recently. We had a breast built from scratch along with the hearth/beam/stove installation. Communication was excellent throughout and Alan and his team were very courteous, carried out the work to a high standard and left zero mess. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alan to anyone looking for this sort of work.

Thankyou Alan.

Also feel obliged to mention Dilys and Alex at Shropshire stoves who we purchased the stove from, the level of expertise,service and attention they gave during the decision making process was exceptional.

Luke Hammil

An excellent job from start to finish , Alan was professional , knowledgeable, helpful and very tidy with very little mess given the work undertaken.(removal of an old fire (gas) fireplace – replaced with new fireplace , hearth including an original oak beam and log burner ) – very smart

We also had ADL fit a more modern log burner in our holiday home in wales with a Slate Hearth – again a first class job – would certainly recommend ADL and Alan in particular.

Nick and Angela Wright

Alan did a great job of installing a stove for me. The finish was perfect and despite it being a dusty job he left our living room spotless. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him, lots of communication from start to finish and very competitively priced. He really is the only choice for a stove installation in Shropshire!

Very pleased with my stove. Alan and his team, were professional from beginning to end. They arrived on time, and completed work to schedule. A very tidy job, left house dust free as possible.


Alan transformed my sad gas fireplace into a lovely wood burning stone fireplace with little disruption. Alan is friendly and reliable and works to a high standard. I have recommended Alan to a friend and would recommend anyone to use ADL chimneys & stoves for their stove fitting.

Alan and his team did a great job fitting our wood burning stove. His prices are very competitive and I was impressed with how frequently he communicated with us via email and text to keep us updated. Our living room is totally transformed!

The service provided by Alan was reassuring from start to finish. He made great suggestions having understood what we wanted to achieve with our fireplace.

Alan arrived every day when he said he would and the materials for the job arrived when expected. The work was carried out in a clean and organised manner and exactly how Alan had planned. He consulted with us on every step and ensured we were happy with progress.

We are more than delighted with the work Alan did and would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and impressive job.

The installation of our log burner went like a dream from start to finish, we couldn’t have found better installers – truly professional, knowledgeable, efficient, clean and tidy. Should we ever need another wood burner, they would be our first port of call. Many thanks, much appreciated.

Added thanks to Shropshire Stoves who recommended A.D.L. (we’d recommend their friendly and efficient service too)

Brilliant job from start to finish and at a very competitive price. Alan was a pleasure to deal with, showed up when he said he would and always kept me informed along the way. Have recommended ADL to friends and family.
