Anyone purchased a fireplace from Southern Hearth & Patio in Chattanooga Tn. They have very good online prices and seem very knowledgeable? They offer free shipping also.
Who's going to install it?
Who is going to come out to your home if you have a problem with it? (Warranty work.)
There's nobody nearby who sells fireplaces?
As far as I'm concerned. when I'm going to purchase something that could potentially burn my home down, I won't just look at prices. I want to be positive it's a unit that I can have installed by a certified professional, (my insurance company likes that too) and I can get service when I might need a part or something. I always have done business with my local stove shops.
