Professional chimney surveys Birmingham, Solihull & the Midlands

25 point Flue and Chimney Survey Checklist

We are happy to instruct one of our fully qualified Building Surveyors to call and carry out an inspection of the internal and exterior condition of existing chimney breasts, flues and chimney stacks.

Each survey will detail the results of a smoke flow test to assess the appliance, hearth, ventilation, fireplace recess, internal flue and gather, roof void, chimney stack, terminal, roof accessibilty and smoke dispersal characteristics of the property.

Each item inspected is reported upon with a simple to understand grading system plus recommendations for any works to bring the installation up to required Building Control safety standards for the particular type of appliance specified.

Repair Cost Estimations

For a small additional fee we will prepare a fully costed schedule of works based on the checklist survey with costings taken from the BCIS Building Repair price list. You will then be fully sure of the expenditure required and the range of quotations you should expect from your chosen building contractor or specialist installer.

We are a Birmingham based family business with over 25 years experience in the specialist fields of fires, flues, and chimneys for smoke control areas. We are happy to travel throughout the UK, and would be pleased to discuss any specific projects or requirements, clients may have.
