Smoke Integrity Testing

'Smoke Test 1' as per Approved Document J - Building Regulations is performed following a sweep. This recognised procedure is used to test for signs of any smoke leakage from a flue and involves the flue being sealed at the top (pot) and bottom (fireplace). This requires access to the roof, chimney stack and all internal rooms and spaces (e.g. loft) and any adjoining properties in the case of semi-detached and terraced properties.

  • Smoke integrity test . . . £150

Chimney CCTV Surveys

CCTV surveys are performed following a sweep. A specialist AMAC Twin Eye diagnostic colour camera system is used to conduct an internal examination of the entire length of the flue. This allows an accurate assessment of its condition to be made. Homeowner, landlord and insurance reports are available.

  • Standard survey & verbal report  . . . £100

  • Full survey & written report including copy of video footage  . . . £200

Creosote Removal

Creosote deposits in flues cause chimney fires, lead to dangerous blockages and the acids within creosote will quickly corrode expensive steel liners. To effectively remove creosote from heavily tarred flues, Cre-Away Pro is applied using an air compressor. This four component chemical treatment neutralises and degrades creosote enabling it to then be removed by sweeping. Very heavy tarring may require more than one application.

  • Cre-Away Pro application & sweep . . . £150

Bird Nest Removal

Bird nests found in chimneys are removed between September and February (outside nesting times - Wildlife and Countryside Act). Once a room is fully sheeted, nests are usually removed from below with appropriate rods and attachments used to punch through the nest and bring the material down. Once removed the flue is fully swept and checked with a CCTV camera to ensure that it is clear and safe to use.

  • Bird nest removal . . . £75 (for initial 90 minutes, £25 for each subsequent 30 minute period)

Cowl & Bird Guard Fitting

Cowls and bird guards come in a range of designs and offer different performance features about which we offer advice. Our most common customer requirements include protection from weather ingress, bird access and downdraft avoidance. Only high quality items, sourced from the leading manufacturers are supplied and fitted securely. Incorrectly chosen and fitted cowls and guards often impair rather than improve fire performance and may present a safety risk.

  • Cowl & Guards . . . Item cost + £75 fitting charge

Stove Maintenance

Stove and fireplace appliances all require maintenance to function safely and perform at their best. Fire bricks, door glass, grate and throat plates, rope seals and fire cement are all considered consumables by manufacturers. Service parts can either be replaced during a sweeping appointment or a complete stove service can be arranged which includes door and glass rope seal replacement, hinge lubrication and a full clean of glass and metal parts.

  • Full stove service . . . . £100

  • Replacement parts . . . Enquire

Stove & Liner Installation

The installation of a new stove or relining of a chimney requires compliance with Building Regulations and notification to your local Building Control. We are always happy to discuss our customer's ideas and offer professional advice and no obligation quotations for fully certified new installations. We pride ourselves on the quality of our installations and use only DEFRA and HETAS approved components and stoves to ensure their performance, longevity and value.
