Thanks very much for an efficient service. No mess was made and you gave me lots of advice about how to get the best from my fire. Thank you Nik.

We were thinking of putting a wood burning stove in and Sweeps and Stoves provided us with lots of useful advice and information.  We have now commissioned them to remove our old fireplace, design and build a new chimney breast surround and install a new wood burning stove for us.

We’d just moved into our house and decided to remove the old electric fire and put a wood burner in, Nik was so helpful and obviously has loads of experience, giving us lots of helpful tips once he fit the burner. We’ll definitely be in touch for our first sweep in a year or two.
