Busy day sweeping this beast today for my lovely friends at Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust at Sutton Courtney.

Matted leaves and spider's webs can block a chimney just as badly, if not more so, than a bird's nest. Book your sweep to be doubly sure that it's clear.

Such lovely stonework on today's fireplace. The opening is sealed to ensure there is no mess at all into the room. Spick and span!

Please use our mobile number while the landline transfers with our broadband. Thank you 😁

This installation has been swept for the last 4 years without anyone mentioning that it is dangerously close to wooden structures.

It's always a shame to have to deliver difficult news, especially when they are new homeowners but it's important that all my customers are safe in their homes.

Richard swept 2 chimneys for us. He was on time and professional and was able to offer us good advice about potential work that needed doing. He also provided a written report. I'd highly recommend Richard.

Your friendly, local chimney engineer.

Keep your home safe. Sit back and relax!

Ensure that your home is safe and that you comply with your household insurance by having your chimney swept at least once a year.

I offer a clean and efficient service across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Berkshire. Call now for a quotation for your fireplace.

I will ask a few questions to be able to offer you a competitive and accurate price including the size of the fireplace and an approximate age of your home. This will help me to know how long it might take to properly protect around your fireplace before carrying out your chosen service.

If your wood burning stove is needing some TLC after working hard for you over the winter I also offer a thorough service of all seals, glass and firebricks, recommending if any replacements are required or whether they may be due at the time of your next service. Depending on use, firebricks may need replacing every 5 or so years.

I have access to spares for most well known stoves including Charnwood, Clearview, Woodwarm, Stovax, Rais, Burley, Hunter and Villager.

I have experience in every home, from Victorian terraces to new properties, twin wall flues to Cotswold stone.
