Chimney repairs - Chimney Doctor

Never put up with a chimney or fire that could be better.

There is always a way to sort it out.

Having been in business since 1981 we have come across all sorts of problems with chimneys.

Seen all sorts of appliances.

Good, bad and dangerous installations.

All ages and designs of building: from tents, caravans and boats with stoves to manor houses.

Big Inglenook fireplaces you can sit in to fires made out of gas bottles.


One thing they all have in common, they all have problems, but the good news is they can all be brought back to health again. I have found all problems solvable.

Firstly by following the principles of sizing, draw and air supply.

Also by knowing and understanding building regulations, I am able to make them safe, and legal.


Common situations and problems.

1/ Smoke entering room or rooms other than the room where the fire is being used.

2/ Smoke entering the neighbour's house when you are using your fire.

3/ Smoke not going up the chimney at all.

4/ Water ingress.

5/ Damp.

6/ Sizing of appliance to room.

7/ Chimney smelling of soot, even when the chimney is not being used

8/ Fire works, but not very well, it just doesn't seem to pull.

9/ The room with fireplace always gets cold when the wind blows.

10/ Fire will not work when the wind is from a particular direction.

11/ Fire burns up too quickly.

12/ Is my appliance dangerous?

13/ Do I really need my chimney lined?

Why not read some of the testimonials and find out what people have said about the chimney sweeping service and roof repairing we offer.
