I work at an Architecture firm and called for some technical assistance on a room-dividing unit. In the past, other companies have just answered my questions with as little detail as possible just to get off the phone. The guy who answered my phone call at Flare Fireplaces (Kyle) went above and beyond and walked me through the entire set up of the unit, toured me through different diagrams on the website so I could visually see what he had explained, and then followed up with an email with EVERYTHING I needed. I tend to ask a lot of questions, and I never once felt like he was annoyed or that he was trying to pawn me off. I never leave 'reviews', but this was such a positive experience, I had to leave one. You can tell this is a great company and the employees are very passionate about their product. I highly recommend!.
