Flu check...prompt, clean and reliable. I was surprised at the range of services that Flu Check could offer. Definitely not your average sweep. Would not hesitate to use Flu check again or to recommend them. It's a 10 out of 10 from me!

Required new Flue Liner urgently, contacted Tony & within a couple of days he was back at the property. Everything installed & passed all tests. Property was left as he found it, clean with no mess to clear up, would highly recommend him to anyone requiring a good honest workman.

Tony came and fixed my fireplace. The people who had installed it had left it unsafe and with a failed smoke test. Tony was able to resolve the problem which was not straightforward and did a very neat and tidy job of fixing it. Clearly very knowledgeable and helpful, made me feel better after the poor experience with the original fitters. Much appreciated and would recommend to anyone.

We used Tony for a service on our gas fire this morning and can highly recommend him. The service was courteous, friendly and professional. We will use Tony for all gas servicing from now on.

Twisted Chimney

Storm Doris seriously damaged and twisted a chimney and I contracted the repair work to Tony. He submitted a reasonable quote for the work required and agreed the dates he would carry it out. On the appointed time and day, Tony was on site and ready to commence. Despite a challenge in accessing the roof and having to contend with a ‘grumpy’ and uncooperative neighbour, Tony carried out the work professionally and with due care and was finished on schedule. During the process Tony identified some additional small works required and readily agreed to address them but at the end of the day refused to accept any additional fees. Throughout the process Tony was cheerful, friendly and professional, and I will continue to use his services when appropriate in the future, and I have no hesitation in recommending him. Tony – many thanks!

Having originally called Tony out to sweep our chimney he soon identified the problem causing our fire to smoke into the room. Tony advised we had an incorrect style of chimney cowl for our appliance and also we did not have an air-brick installed in the room. Tony was quick to return to do the work necessary to rectify these problems and we immediately noticed the improvement. Tony is now our regular chimney sweep and we have recommended him to friends who are also pleased with not only his efficient service but also his knowledge. I would not hesitate to recommend Tony for any "chimney related" issues.

Called Tony after another company told us nothing could be done and the flue would need completely rebuilt! Tony checked the flue said it could be cleaned. He cleaned the flue (no mess whatsoever!) put a camera up to check it was clear and functioning. he did all the relevant checks, smoke bombs etc. It looked like our spinning cowl was jammed up so Tony ordered one for us. The day he came to fit it he seen our spinning was spinning fine and said he didn't need to replace it, he said he didn't want us spending money we didn't need to, we were very grateful for this! Would highly recommend Tony, hes friendly, efficient and very reasonably priced.

Tony is an extremely reliable, trustworthy and knowledgeable tradesman. He responded quickly to my questions beforehand and got the job done swiftly and thoroughly. Perfect plastering in no time at all! Cowls fitted to chimney have an ingenious additional invention to outwit the jackdaws - certainly he is very experienced, but he also thinks outside the box when it comes to solving a problem. I would certainly use his services again and happily recommend him to others.

I have used Tony for my own home and recommended him to friends and family on numerous occasions. I've never been let down and none of the people who I have recommended him to have had anything but the same positive experience that I have always had. With something as important as gas safety/heating the most important thing is integrity, which Tony has in abundance. Cannot recommend highly enough!
