Being right at the top of a property, chimneys take the brunt of all weathers and temperatures. Over time if a chimney is not looked after properly it will get damaged and become unsafe to be on top of your property which is a danger to the building and people.
For a chimney to work properly, it needs to be protected against things like water ingress blockages, smoke leakage, bad ventilation, down-draughts and tar build up inside it. Chimneys are the breathing line for the property. Chimneys should be tested regularly for smoke integrity to make sure that there are no hidden faults which may lead to further problems such as not being water tight or dangerous gases seeping out.
We can bring you many different options which can help your chimney remain in a great working condition. We can take care of repairs, maintenance and restoration if required.
