"Great job. Polite, reliable, tidy, value for money"

Chimney swept and debris cleaned from register plate and flue

"Cala Heading swept the chimney, cleaned it all out and serviced everything, checking for safety. Always use them, a little more expensive than other 'sweeps' but does a very thorough job and spends 45 minutes on the job. We are left feeling safe to use the log burner for another winter knowing everything has been cleaned out and double checked.

My house had no useable flue, so the new one ran through the lounge ceiling and upstairs bedroom, where it was boxed in. The total cost of the install and stove came very reasonably."

"So being incredibly cynical, I am not the easiest to please, particularly where tradesmen are concerned. More often than not they are late and love to let jobs drag on for longer than they estimate. Craig will prove you wrong if you share the same opinion as me. Admittedly Craig arrived a little late, but he first called and because he couldn't contact me followed up with a text, (at this point i'm asking myself, "Is this guy really a tradesman?"). When he arrives he isn't interested in talking about the weather or the game last night, but instead proceeds to apologise and get stuck into his work. 3 hours later he pops up saying "I'll be back shortly". I can only presume that he went to lunch, but he was back in 30 minutes ready to finish the job. A couple of hours later Craig pops his head around the corner asking for the vacuum (Again I find myself asking the question, "Is he really tradesman?"). Before leaving he then asks how long I have lived at the property and asks if the gas has ever been checked for leaks? ("here's the catch!"). I tell him and let him carry out the check expecting him to tell me this is going to cost extra. Far from it, he tells me everything is all fine, writes up an invoice for the price we agreed and asks if could write a review of my experience on here. How could I not? If like me you struggle to trust tradesmen, feel safe in the knowledge that Craig has done someone a good service and I am grateful to return the favour. Look no further if you need a gas safe plumber or a solid fuel specialist. Moreover it's free to get a quote. He's doing some work for my sister in law next week."
