BASIC CHIMNEY SWEEP & INSPECTION
Our comprehensive service for our new customers. This service is ideal for relatively new & correctly installed appliances that are not experiencing any issues.
The chimney is cleaned & a camera is used in the flue (this ONLY allows us to ensure the debris is removed, it will not necessarily allow us to find any faults within the flue. For this you will need the Level 1 Chimney Sweep & Inspection). The appliance is checked over and we will advise if we need to carry out any maintenance. We can also advise on best burning practices to help you save fuel and get the best out of your appliance, and answer any questions you may have - we are here to help!
Cooker stoves i.e Rayburns, flues with multiple access points or unlined stoves may cost slightly more for the routine sweep. There is a £5 discount per flue if there is more than one to be swept at the same property.
LEVEL 1 CHIMNEY SWEEP & DETAILED INSPECTION
A detailed safety inspection especially useful for new homeowners, if you are looking to install a new stove, or if you suspect an issue such as a blockage or smoke spillage.
The chimney is cleaned thoroughly. This ensures a clear lens for the chimney camera as any debris can reduce the visibility of any defects. A detailed chimney camera inspection is carried out. Video & photographic evidence is recorded if any issues are found. The appliance or open fire is thoroughly checked for any defects or maintenance work required. The entire installation is checked to see if it meets with current building regulations & a report provided. Investigation at this level does not include any destructive investigation or roof access, if this is required we would discuss with you and arrange another appointment.
CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS
We always recommend fitting a carbon monoxide alarm & can advise on the best positioning. It is always best to have them fitted permanently in position. We will supply & fit a carbon monoxide alarm if you request,. Our alarms comply to BSEN: 50291:2001 & have a sealed battery. The unit lasts 7 years & has a 7 year manufacturer warranty.
We always check the appliance over as part of a basic chimney sweep (see top of price list) & will advise if it needs any additional service work. We can source spare parts & can replace most rope seals & fire bricks immediately. Prices depend on the sizes required.
Other parts (glass, most metal parts & some special bricks) we can either supply or provide you with details so that you can order them. If required, we can arrange to fit these parts at another date. (Subsequent visits to fit parts start at £50 ex. materials).
£95 - £160
BIRD NEST REMOVALS
A common cause of blockage in a flue, bird nests in chimneys are usually made by Jackdaws. Their nests can be extensive filling between 2 & 5 rubbish sacks! We use various rod attachments to remove the nest. The chimney camera is then used to ensure that all the material has been removed - this is essential as it can be a fire risk if any is left in the chimney. Jackdaws are territorial & reliably rebuild nests the following year so we always recommend fitting a suitable bird guard (which we can arrange for you).
NOTE: Jackdaws are actively using their nests between the March and September and it is illegal to disturb them during this time.
£70 - £90
+ Cowl (see below)
We supply and fit high quality stainless steel birdguards, cowls, and caps for disused flues.
Safety is our first priority - working at heights is not something to be taken lightly. We are qualified and our equipment is certified. Additionally, we take care of your property and will assess and discuss with you if we suspect weak roof tiles etc. Occasionally a tile is fitted badly or is weak, in the case of any tiles becoming cracked from the ladders being placed, we will replace or repair.
Please provide us with a photo of your property showing ground to stack, so that we can determine what equipment will be required to gain access to the chimney pots and quote.
Wire 'pointy' birdguard - £25
Standard birdguard with rain cover - £50
Cap for disused flue, vented and insect-proof - £25
