Ernie & Mary
Maifrini are the owners of Ernie's Woodstove
Repairs and Sales in Durham, Ontario.
Ernie has been buying, selling and
restoring woodstoves in Durham
since 1992. Ernie's
sons, Peter and Ernest, have taken an
interest in the business and work along
side their father.
Over the years we have restored a large number
of stoves dating from the mid 1800's to
present day. We have restored, McClary
Pandora, Findlay Oval, Enterprise, Renfrew
Cookrite, just to name a few.
If you have a stove that belonged to your mother or grandmother perhaps, or if you have found a stove that needs to be restored. No matter what condition it is in, we can restore it.
Our work encompasses all aspects of wood burning
stoves from museum quality antiques, to
family heirlooms to modern airtights. We
do minor repairs or complete rebuilds as
necessary after consultation. Whether the stove
is just for show or to be restored and
installed for use - we can do it.
son Peter of Pete's Chimney Services
has his WETT certification. He does our
installation of new and used woodburning
stoves. He also installs new stainless
steel chimneys and liners.
