What our customers are saying…
So happy we popped into the show room a couple of months ago and connected with Meredith. She was extremely helpful with choosing the two fireplaces we ended up purchasing this past month and was also quick to send additional info and quotes as well as set up a visit to our home and assess our needs. Both she and Noel as well as their employees who installed our fireplaces were very professional and really awesome to work with. Very impressed with our experience and 100% recommend you choose their company!!!
Excellent product and services. The guys showed up on time, were very clear in their explanations, and finished the job very cleanly. Simon and Julian were very knowledgeable, obviously knew their craft, and super polite. Meredith was responsive with everything from quotation and products, all the way to the invoicing and rebate process. Highly recommended.
We had a fabulous experience with Maxwell from start to finish! We replaced a wood burning fireplace with gas, and had the challenge that veneer added by previous owners reduced the size of the opening so it looked like we had to go custom. They figured out, though, that we could remove some veneer without affecting the integrity of the chimney! The installers were professional and friendly and did a beautiful job. They took the time to explain the remote, how to open everything up to clean the glass or replace batteries, and answer all our questions. The fireplace itself (a Valor) is both beautiful and powerful. I highly recommend this company!
Quality work and outstanding customer service. Meredith and Noel are such a pleasure to work with and I am extremely pleased with my new fireplace in Whistler. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

We got a fireplace about 10 years ago with Maxwell and had been happy with the service at that time. We recently had to buy trim and have the unit re-serviced. Again we were dealt with professionally and with top notch customer service. By staff in the showroom and the two technicians who came to our home. Thank you Meredith, Simon and Rob!
Very happy to be able to deal with a local, well run business. Highly recommend!
We had two fireplaces purchased this past month and installed by this company and are so very pleased with the end result. They were quick to visit our home and assess our situation and needs. They listened to our concerns and didn't try to push their products, but wanted the very best appliances to address our heating concerns. Very professional and wonderful to work with. We love our new fireplaces and can't say enough about what a positive experience this was. Very helpful, timely, professional, and the cost was exactly what they quoted. Do yourself a favour - if you need a fireplace, just contact this company. Meredith and Noel and their employees are 'on it' and very accommodating and friendly. You will be very happy I'm sure.
Darren and the team were very good right from the start. We were impressed with their knowledge and their selection. They also had good recommendations of other contractors we could use to make our project run smoothly. Due to Covid we had to make some changes and Maxwell took into account our situation and really helped us out. I would highly recommend Darren and team as it is easy to see that they care for and put their customers first. Much appreciated!
Dear Noel and Meredith Cormack
This is to express my deep appreciation and admiration for the way in which you managed the installation of my new wood-burning fireplace. The service you provided was outstanding. I have no hesitation at all in recommending you, your services and your product. You went the extra miles, not only in ensuring that the installation was done to highest standards but, remarkably, Noel came by to light our fire and demonstrate all its features - and his fire-making skills and prowess. As a result of that tuition and your excellent product we have been thoroughly enjoying our new fireplace every since. Many thanks to you both. With very best wishes for your continued and thoroughly deserved success.
