Below are just some of the many kind words of correspondence and references we recieve about our work.

Mr Richards, Princetown

"I wanted to pass on my thanks for a job well done. The fires are burning again, thanks to the lads who did a professional job. Will be in touch regarding the Rayburn chimney."

Mr & Mrs MacFarlane, Cornwall

"Hello, just a quick one to give great feedback on our Sweep and Stove service. The chap (sorry never caught his name) did the service last Monday. We recently moved into the property and using the stove before service was a total let-down (it hardly heated the room) - however - since serviced, it is working a treat and we are very impressed with its heat output now - it also looked brand new once he finished his servicing - again very impressed - Please take this as very good feedback for your engineer, he was also not "pushy" with parts &showed us before replacing with reasoning and costs - all very fair we felt."

Mr & Mrs Danton, Cornwall

"As you know Mark and Mark called yesterday to make sure the chimney was clear and they fitted a £90 cowl. We had been having terrible trouble with smoke coming into the room when we lit an open fire last week. This is to let you ALL know that the cowl seems to have cured the problem! We lit a fire last night and it was wonderful, with excellent draft and not a hint of smoke in the room. I wonder how a cowl can make such a difference unless it is a venturi effect? Anyway, please assure the two Marks that all is superb and we are grateful."

Rod, Cornwall

"Many thanks for sorting out our chimney this morning, and to let you know that the fire now works as it used to. Now when we open the bottom vent there is an instant response and no smell at all. Many thanks Rod. P.S. If you want to put a sign up let us know."

Mr Evans, Cornwall

"Thank you for your efficient professional service fitting our chimney cap whilst we were out. Many thanks"
