Please be aware I am usually booked 8-10 weeks ahead from August onward!
BIRD NEST REMOVALS: £80 - £150
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 and 5 rubbish sacks! I use various rod attachments and the chimney camera is 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 and reliably rebuild nests the following year so I always recommend fitting a suitable bird guard (which we can arrange for you)
I always check the appliance over as part of sweeping, and will advise if it needs any additional service work. I can source spare parts and can replace most rope seals and fire bricks immediately. Prices depend on the sizes required.
Other parts (glass, most metal parts and some special bricks) I can either supply or provide you with details so that you can order them. If required, I can arrange to fit these parts at another date. (Subsequent visits to fit parts start at £30 ex. materials)
Carbon monoxide alarms: £30 fitted
I always reccomend fitting a carbon monoxide alarm and I can advise on the best positioning. It is always best to have them fitted permanantly in position. I will supply and fit a carbon monoxide alarm if you request, my alarms comply to BSEN: 50291:2001 and have a sealed battery, the unit lasts 7 years and has a 7 year manufacturer warranty.
The basic service is suitable for relatively new and correctly installed appliances that are not experiencing any issues and only require an annual clean and check.
The chimney is cleaned and a camera is used in the flue (This ONLY allows us to ensure the debris is removed) The appliance is given a general once over to see if it requires any regular maintinence.
Level 1 Chimney Sweep and Inspection (From £100)
This service is reccomended for new customers, new homeowners or those who are looking to use an appliance/fireplace that has not been used before.
The chimney is cleaned. A thorough chimney camera inspection is carried out. Video and photographic evidence recorded if any issues are found, in order to provide you with a report. The appliance is thoroughly checked for any defects or maintinence work required. The entire installation is checked to see if it meets with current building regulations and a report can be provided if required. Investigation at this level does not include any destructive investigation or roof access.
Level 2 Chimney Sweep and Inspection (From 200)
Following the above Level 1 inspection there may be additional concerns. For example it may be necessary to remove part of the installation* in order to investigate an otherwise inaccessible area, or in the case of water ingress issues it may be necessary to access the roof to inspect the chimney stack. For some atypical installations I may need to conduct additional research in order to provide a comprehensive report. *making good of any destructive investigation at addional cost, to be discussed prior.
Level 3 Chimney Sweep and Inspection (From 300)
The level 3 inspection covers most concerns. The chimney is swept and inspected and any destructive investigation* can be carried out. The chimney stack is accessed and a full pressure smoke test carried out (if you are a party wall you will need to arrange consent and access with your neighbours and this will be an additional £50) the chimney stack is inspected and you will receive a separate report on its condition, as well as a report on the internal condition of the chimney flue and the installation.*making good of any destructive investigation at addional cost, to be discussed prior.
