New Website Upgrades

New Website Upgrades

So I’ve had some new logo’s made as a wee experiment on Fiverr and had some upgrades including style done to the site now and I think its functionality is a bit better too. Lot’s more changes coming this year in everything hopefully, me, myself and I too 🙂  If you want to get in touch for anything,  comment about the new site or anything else, ask questions etc?  the easiest way will be to use the facebook page, either comments or PM if discretion is required.  I’d like to keep the contact page onsite for work inquiries only.

What is a CCTV Chimney Survey?

What is a CCTV Chimney Survey?

A  CCTV Chimney Survey comprises of a professional sweep using a flexible camera system to look up inside your existing flue system. This allows a close-up view of the system, meaning that any damages or blockages can be identified. A CCTV Chimney Survey also allows the sweep to note the measurements of the flue system interior. These are necessary to ensure the correct size of flue liner can be used for your project. The correct size of flue lining is key to preventing any harmful gasses from escaping into the property and other issues such as water and/or liquid emission flows. 

The CCTV Chimney Surveys Allow Us To:

  • Identify the flue system dimensions.
  • Establish the best lining system for your flue, if needed?
  • Check for damages such as past chimney fire damage, extreme weather, or just general wear and tear.
  • View blockages which could arise from fallen debris, animal mess, birds nests or damages by foreign objects/obstructions, bad bends and  all other considerations.

CCTV Inspections are a new service just recently added to our range and are also used most importantly as part of every bird’s nest clearances we do.

The importance of decent ladders

The importance of decent ladders


So it had been in the back of my mind for a while now to invest in some decent ladders as the ones left to me by my father were getting on a bit. As with a lot of things these days, it didn’t take me long to find out the price of a decent set of ladders with free delivery wasn’t particularly expensive; after that i couldn’t fail to abide by the logic of getting a new set.

There i sat patiently waiting until finally after 2 days and lots of excuses later, the new shiny ladders finally arrived. Out i went to inspect them and lo and behold , i stopped counting at 6 rungs damaged by significant dents. I know its an out sized item mate but bloody ell you fair been flinging it around in anger ?

I had to laugh at this guy ,  i really did, he who still had the sheer audacity to suggest,” it’s OK mate you can accept them and get your money back so it says so here on my delivery note thingy”.  So i enlighten him that for me to return them to get my money back would cost almost as much as the set of ladders. Moral of the story is always check your deliveries from couriers these days , there’s always lots of stories about them doing this kind of thing these days.

Needless to say after adjusting to ladders that i don’t need to body-pop just to stay upright on was a bit weird to begin with, lol i kept shoogling and …of course it stayed dead still. Ahh i’m so happy with my new ladders , the new stability in my life ..hah, should have gotten some ages back but hey got em now, joy 🙂

Roll on the Winter season 2017

Summer is pretty much over and we are fast rolling into autumn, which means it’s the beginning of our high season (phew, i can finally make some dosh; seasonal work is not for all so just as well i’m a saver).
This season i will be trying some new marketing out, including some leaflet drops and maybe some facebook +/google adverts too. Perhaps i should try to think of an incentive to try to avoid/mitigate the Xmas rush some way, i will give it some thought.  Our new van      ( yes it is white-, lol, shh don’t laugh!!) is looking good, running fine, has passed it’s MOT and hopefully will continue to serve us faithfully for a good few years to come.
This year i am looking forward to getting the van sign written, so that it will look more professional not to mention advertise our services. Once it’s done i will get the pictures up , which is another promise for this year… to take some more pictures of work for the facebook page so that interested folk can see and learn about what we do :).

I’ve just changed the theme of the website again so , hopefully you’ll agree it looks a bit tidier , i have plans to get a new logo done in the not too distant future and more site work on the TBD list too.

Summer Heat is on

Not posted in a while so just a quick post to let everyone know i am here , still available for work over the summer. Normal service ends the end of this month but i will be available on request until the autumn season starts back up again towards the end of August.

So if you have birds nest problems or “other” jobs the best time to get it done will be early July to mid August unless otherwise notified by post here. Thanks for your loyal continued support, Tom 🙂
