Most people give little thought to the state of repair of their chimney until something happens.

Making repairs, cleaning or even removing a chimney are specialist jobs and need to be handled properly.

We can help you with all sorts of issues with your chimney;

  • Chimney rebuilding – if you have a stack that is breaking up due to damage to the blocks or pointing then we can rebuild it.
    From simply re-setting a few bricks to a full removal and replacement, we can provide the best possible solution for your problem.
  • Chimney removal – With the country making great strides in cleaning up pollution, many people are moving to electric heating.
    Consequently, removing a chimney and making good the roof is a good option as it reduces any worry with regards to maintaining the installation.
  • Chimney repointing – Repointing your chimney is a smart move as it prevents further damage and even falls from the stack.
    Repointing is simple, as long as you use the right materials and that you have the correct safety setup. We are specialist at working at height and can ensure that your job is completed safely and to the highest standard.
  • Bird proofing – Birds nesting in your chimney can cause a great deal of damage and of course if you are still using your open-hearth can cause a fire risk.
    We have a variety of methods of bird proofing not only your chimney but other facades that could suffer from the attentions of our feathered friends.
  • Reduction in height – It’s possible that for aesthetic purposes or for safety reasons you may wish to reduce the height of your chimney.
    We are able to safely remove courses of bricks and then reinstate the look of your chimney, removing all spoil and leaving you with a tidy, finished job.
  • Chimney pot maintenance – Whilst the chimney stack may be in fine fettle, terracotta pots can suffer from freeze damage due to the porous nature of the clay.
    We are able to source a suitable pot, often of the same vintage and then fit to retain the aesthetic finish of your roof.
  • Lead Flashing – chimneys are often joined to the roofline using lead flashing sheets and strips however it is possible for the lead to become damaged which can lead to water leaks through the roof.
    We are able to survey the joints and identify areas that require attention and then produce a watertight join that will survive even the most horizontal of Edinburgh rains!
