Please remember that a site visit is essential if you are considering having a Log burner fitted. This will be to determine what your requirements are and ensure that any questions you have are answered.It will also be an opportunity to discuss the types of stove that are available and what if any building work is required.
Installing a Log burner and associated work is covered by building regulations and is notifiable to the Local Council. HETAS is the government recognised body for Solid Fuel and Biomass appliances,fuels and services and the register of competant Installers.
After your Installation is complete you will be issued with a HETAS Certificate of Compliance confirming that the installation is safe and complies to Building Regulations. This is essential for Home Insurance and will be requested if you sell the property. Building Control is infomed at the Council.
I am a Member of HETAS Reg No 4153 & 16632 and also a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen. To satisfy all Insurance companies and trade bodies I have £5M of Public Liability Insurance.Copies can be provided on request.
We work with a lot of reliable trades too and often some jobs can be tackled together for cost effectiveness.

Top of the pot and the pot broken – someone has attempted a repair with some gutter sealant !
When we inspect the top of your chimney stack we will always take photographs to show you anything that might be a problem not just with the chimney but with the roof,Tv ariel,gutter or anything else, that can be seen.You can then decide what to do,if anything. Many of our customers find this useful,after all how often do you actually look at the top of your property ?
We supply and fit Carbon Monoxide alarms,smoke alarms and Heat detectors (for Kitchens). With all installations it is the law that a Co Alarm is fitted within 3m but not closer than 1m to the appliance.
Its sensible to have one fitted near any Gas,Oil or solid fuel burning appliance that you have already fitted. Test them weekly and don’t buy the cheap ones that change colour when Co is detected….You may not be awake to check it.
Smoke Alarms should be fitted throughout the house and its a good idea to fit a Heat Detector in the Kitchen.
We Install and repair Log Burners and Multi Fuel stoves, replacing everything from Firebricks,Door Glass, and Seals to a full service and respray, if required.
Fitting Cowls and birdguards can solve many issues from poor performance,to downdraught and of course stop birds and pests from getting in your chimney. Please contact us for an estimate or further information.
We also work with local builders who have years of experience in Chimney and Fireplace building or rebuilding, opening up dis used fireplaces,roof work and other skills so that a complete package can be offered.
