“Paul and Mark installed a wood-burning stove for us and did the job very efficiently, taking care to keep any disruption to a minimum. Every stage of the work was carefully explained to us and they made sure that on completion, the place was left clean and tidy. As it was our first stove they showed us how to use and maintain it for maximum efficiency. The cost of the work was extremely competitive and within a few pounds of the original quote and the reason for the very small overage, explained to our satisfaction. We will definitely be asking them to service the stove regularly and cannot recommend them highly enough”. Udayan, HARINGEY (24/02/17)

“We’ve had Paul from Sweepsmart sweep a couple of chimneys in our house and decided to get him back to install a log burner and flue. With it being a fire in your home you really need to consider the safety aspect of an open fire. Paul is extremely knowledgeable and explained everything we required. He also organised the certificates very quickly. He advised us on log burner types and the best ones for our space. On the day they covered everything in dust sheets and ran through the work. They installed a top quality flue liner and left the place as they found it. He even ran though the best way to use the burner to get the most out of it. The log burner hasn’t been off – it’s been great and we’re glad to have found someone with such a professional manner and considerate work ethic”. Phil. TOTTENHAM (05/12/16)
