Some advantages of a Pyromasse Hand Built Heater.

Hand building offers more flexibility in form size and height .
The full time hand builder will generally be way more qualified and have a fuller embrace of the trade than the mason who faces prefabricated cores, in between other masonry projects.

Prefabricated heaters are usually sold via a system of dealers working on commission. There for the person who sells the prefabricated core is not the person responsible for the ultimate execution of the project, and so can at best only approximately foretell the real end cost of the project.

A distributor of prefabricated heaters Is not at all responsible for the approximate end total cost of the installation quoted at the time of sale.
The total end cost of a Pyromasse heater is stated clearly on first contact and will not change as there are no other parties involved.

The only area ever to have been seen to deteriorate in a masonry heater, the fire box, is easily re-lineable in a Pyromasse stove.

There is no split responsibility when installing a Pyromasse heater.
Responsibility for the total project from start to finish rests entirely with Marcus Flynn and Pyromasse.

There is, after the architect and general contractor, only one party to coordinate regarding the heaters construction.

All of the heaters built by Pyromasse in Quebec during the last 18 years are fully operational today.

Though ultimately costing the same as a prefabricated heater, a hand built Pyromasse heater is a unique work executed by one of North America's most qualified and experienced stove builders.
