seeking referrals for gas fireplace installers

A 1st Street NW resident has this request:

Could you post a request asking for referrals of someone to install gas fireplaces? We have been unable to locate a reputable person who is licensed in DC to install gas inserts into two fireplaces. It is surprising that it is hard to find someone who wants to do this work.

  2. I used a company called Mitchel's. They are located in VA but did my other house on Logan Circle. I had the gas log and burner assembly replaced. Tell them Brian Glade (O St house)referred you. http://mitchelschimney.com/

  4. I had them come out, and they provided me an estimate. I had some sticker shock at the price, which was about 50 percent higher than I expected. And, I did not have complete confidence in them. They talked about putting a ventless fireplace in a bedroom if I wanted to eliminate the cost for lining the chimney. I am pretty sure -- and now checking -- that the fire code requires vented fireplaces in a bedroom.
