I am a do-it-yourself person. I usually only contract out work that needs a licensed contractor like a plumber or electrician. I recently decided to replace my old wood burning fireplace insert with a new one. So I began by trying to get information from the online stores. They weren't really any help because they didn't know local code. So I made calls to several of the local fireplace stores all of which were pretty competitive on pricing but I wasn't really having much luck getting guidance on doing it myself, as most of them wanted to install the system for me. I called Fireplace Express and Crystal answered the phone. Now Crystal doesn't install the systems and didn't really know how to answer my questions, but she did the next best thing. She took my number down and called Jason "The Owner". After a while she called me back and told me Jason would be in the office in about 45 minutes and I could come down and talk to him about my questions. When I met with Jason, he told me all about the different types of fireplace systems from wood burning to vent less. He told me the pros and cons on all of them and didn't really try to sell me on this one or that one. He just talked to me about them. Now for my house I chose the vent less system because I don't want 15' feet of stovepipe sticking out the front of my house. The next day I came back and picked up the fireplace that I chose and while I was there, one of there installers was there picking up materials for a job he was headed out to do. He gave me his card and told me to give him a call if I had any more questions. Which I did, several times as a matter of fact. He was great, he answered his phone every time I called and gave me the advice that I needed. It has been a real pleasure working with these guys. I would highly recommend them whether you are a do-it-yourself person or you want the job done by a professional.

Bachle's is fantastic. Almost all of our dealings were with Candi, the owner. After looking online for custom order fireplace doors, I concluded that it was beyond my abilities even to measure for the door. Called Bachle's based on the reviews here. Candi came to the house to measure for the fireplace door, and show us options. We picked a very modern looking door that was going to have to be mortared into place due to the irregular shape of the opening. In 3 weeks, we had the new door. Candi did almost all the work herself although she did have a helper along for the installation. The door looks GREAT! And you couldn't find a more knowledgeable, friendly, and can do business owner than Candi. If you live in central Oklahoma, and need a fireplace door, call Candi at Bachle's. You will be so very glad that you did. Amazing service, comprehensive knowledge, and what I consider, from what I know of custom fireplace doors, pretty reasonable prices.
I recently purchased a custom fireplace screen for our new outdoor fireplace. It's absolutely beautiful. The first time I went in the store Kandi had a screen on display and it was love at first sight. It had been s a custom order some years ago and the people had redecorate their home and purchased a new screen. Only problem was some parts of the designs could no longer be duplicated. She was able to remove pieces of that screen and create a new screen for me. with a beautiful three-dimensional grape vine pattern. It's perfect with my antique patio furniture which also has a grape vine pattern. It's just stunning! I only wish the dear friend who gave me the furniture probably forty years ago could she how beautiful my patio looks! Thanks, Kandi...you're the best!
