Having decided to purchase a new gas fireplace as part of our family room renovation, we scouted a few dealers in Etobicoke. Nero was competitive on price and excelled on customer service. David, the owner, was knowledgeable and extremely helpful; he took time to review our drawings and make a few suggestions. We never felt pressured to make a decision. He came by our house three times to look at the ongoing renovation to ensure that everything was going to be compatible on installation day. The installation went smoothly; we are very happy with his recommendation of the product and every aspect of interaction with David and his team. We cannot recommend David and Nero Fire highly enough; this was the experience we would wish to have repeated in each of our future contracting projects.
It was a pleasure dealing with David. I was not sure if I could have a fireplace in my townhouse due to its limited space, but David custom designed one which has transformed the entire first floor of my home adding a gorgeous focal point and a cozy ambiance. I just love my new fireplace!!
I have had THE BEST EXPERIENCE dealing with David and Nero Fire Design. It was absolutely seamless - the entire experience. We just recently moved into a townhouse and I was afraid that we would not be able to have a fireplace. David came to our home and explained where it would fit and went to work making it. I love that we are actually having moisture into the air, which during those dry winter months will be awesome. Do yourselves a favour an book an appointment with David. You will be thrilled that you did.
My fiance and I, went through a total gut renovation on our house and
our renovators asked for an exorbitant amount to do our built ins. I
decided to shop around for options and I am so glad I found David at
Nero Fire Design.
We wanted to make our built-in and niches a little more modern and
artistic than others we've seen. When we discussed with David what we
wanted, he had very good taste in design was able to make our dream come
true. He also did not hesitate to make it to 3D so that we can
visualize it in the room and rotate it etc. He made many revisions to
accommodate for all our media devices.
The part that really sets David at Nero Fire Design, from other
contractors, is that he did not hesitate to ask us about modifications
to the fireplace design to make it look and function the best it could
be, despite it being more work for him.
1. We realized our ceilings/air ducts under the built in weren't
straight so he went the extra mile to fix that to accommodate the built
2. He suggested that we center the fireplace to our pot lights so that
the overall look would be more aligned - he shifted the whole 3D drawing
to accommodate for this so that we can see it in 3D and be OK with it
3. He recommended we add potlights to the bottom of the niches rather
than the top of the niche (bedroom built-in) for added drama and more
symmetry. All these adjustments were recommended by him and his
intuition and taste for design was spot-on. ////
4. He made sure to buy the exact shoe moulding trim for the built-in to
match the rest of our house (which were rather hard to find). He also
bought special bolts to accommodate for our pricey speakers. ////
The above was all extra work for him but he did not blink an eye to go
the extra mile because he wanted to make sure his finished work is
perfect and up to his standards.
I am a very picky, meticulous person (i.e. corners have to be perfect,
alignments, etc) and I am amazed that David is even more so than I am!
In the current renovation industry in Toronto, this caliber of work
ethic is really hard to find.
Finally, his pricing is very very fair compared to others in the
Before his work he covered our furniture and floors and after he was
done he vacuumed and left the niche ready to use, absolutely pristine.
It was like a fairy just came and left us two beautiful built-ins and
I will not hesitate to recommend David to others. Already, my mother is
asking one for her house too. We cannot wait to have guests over to show
off our built-ins.
We are so thrilled with David's work! He is professional, wonderful to work with and delivered a product that we are more than satisfied with. It was a seamless experience! We will definitely use him again.
David passionately designed and built a custom wall-mounted fireplace cabinet that appears to float off the ground, and beautifully adds a focal point to our living area. David was a pleasure to interact with from the start, and in the end, has provided my family a piece of architecture that can be pleasantly enjoyed each day.
I would most highly recommend David and Nero Fire Design.
We first discovered Nero Fire Design at the Home Show in Toronto. We fell in love with the concept of a water vapour fire, with such a beautiful and realistic flame. We met David at his showroom and after seeing his designs, he was able to custom design a fireplace that could suspend from the wall and be open on three sides for viewing. The fire provides a beutiful glow in the evening without heat in the summer and an option for heat when needed, great for all season use. David was a pleasure to work with, listening to our needs and finished the fireplace on time, exactly as discussed. Devlivery and instalation was a breeze. We highly recommend David and Nero Fire Design!
I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am to have found a creator of such beautiful fire place like yours coupled with a generous, friendly and helpful man that you are. God Bless you.
My yogalightstudio.ca wouldn't be the same without it, in fact the more yogis and yoginis see it on their way to a practice the more they stop and stare at it simply because it's mesmerizing and emits truly a sense of serenity which is what I wanted to achive all along.
Thank you David and "NeroFireDesign" for making one of a kind master piece!!!
