Chimney Repairs across Staffordshire and Cheshire

Not only is the chimney on your domestic or commercial property vital for ventilation. Where some properties are concerned it is a crucial component of the structure itself.

When our clients report a roof leak to us we always suspect the chimney stack. Due to constant exposure to severe weather which can gradually erode the brick joints, cappings and flashings. A leaking chimney can cause considerable damage within your property. 

That’s why it’s important to ensure your chimney is:

  • Well Maintained
  • Efficient
  • Water-tight
  • Safe & Secure
