Chimney Stack Removal

A typical chimney stack removal job is a multi-step process.

The activities include removing all cement flaunching and chimney cowls/pots, dismantling the bricks and breaking them into pieces to be disposed off. Then it’s a case of replacing or repairing the roofing felt and timber before laying new tiles to blend seamlessly with the old roof.

We will take care of all the planning and management of the job for you, all you need to do is call.

Chimney Repair & Restoration

The chimney is one of the most exposed and vulnerable parts of a building.

Wind, rain, moisture or leakage can affect it in various ways – with cracks being an especially dangerous issue since gases from burning wood could leak through them into your house!

Whether it’s full chimney repointing or a simple repair, our experienced team will be able to repair any resulting brickwork issues.

Chimney Flue & Liner Installation

A chimney liner is a necessary component of the flue system in any home with an open flame.

It ensures the products of combustion are dispersed safely, without fire hazards or health risks to those inside and outside the house.

We’ll make sure you choose the right type for the right situation.

Chimney Flashing & Leadwork

Lead is the perfect material for sealing roofs, fitting into the gaps whatever the shape. On chimneys its flexibility and durability have made it the finishing material of choice for centuries, but it can’t last forever.

Call us for any repairs of adjustments, don’t let the water get there first.

Chimney Capping

Chimney capping involves installing a cap on top of the chimney to prevent water, debris, and animals from entering. This is important to prevent damage to the chimney and surrounding areas, as well as to prevent potential fire hazards. 

Partial Chimney Rebuilds

Partial chimney rebuilds involve repairing or replacing damaged sections of the chimney. This may include replacing damaged bricks or stones, repairing mortar joints, or installing a new liner. Partial chimney rebuilds are important to maintain the structural integrity of the chimney and prevent further damage. 

Full Chimney Rebuilds

Full chimney rebuilds involve completely rebuilding the chimney from the ground up. This may be necessary if the chimney is severely damaged or unstable.

Do You Need Your Chimney Repaired?

Chimney repair and rebuilding services are essential to maintain the safety and efficiency of your home’s heating system. Chimneys are exposed to harsh weather conditions and can get damaged over time, leading to various problems such as leaks, blockages, and even fire hazards

Signs of Chimney Damage 

Signs of Chimney Damage: There are several common signs of chimney damage that homeowners in the UK should be aware of. These signs include:


1. Cracks in the chimney crown or cap
 

  • The chimney crown or cap is the topmost part of the chimney and is designed to keep water out. If it is cracked, water can seep in and cause damage to the chimney and surrounding areas. It is important to address this issue promptly to prevent further damage. 

2. Damaged or missing chimney flashing 

  • Chimney flashing is the material that seals the area where the chimney meets the roof. If it is damaged or missing, water can enter the roof and cause damage to the attic and other areas of the home. It is important to address this issue promptly to prevent water damage and potential mold growth. 

3. Crumbling or missing mortar joints in the chimney 

  • Mortar joints hold the bricks or stones of the chimney together. If they are crumbling or missing, the chimney can become unstable and potentially collapse. It is important to address this issue promptly to prevent further damage and ensure the safety of your home. 

4. White staining on the chimney 

  • White staining, also known as efflorescence, is caused by water that has entered the chimney and evaporated, leaving behind salt deposits. This is a sign that water is entering the chimney and can cause damage over time. It is important to address this issue promptly to prevent further damage and potential mold growth. 

5. Leaning chimney 

  • A leaning chimney is a sign of significant damage that needs to be addressed promptly. It can indicate that the foundation of the chimney is compromised and could potentially collapse, causing serious damage to the home.
