I started sweeping chimneys 36 years ago operating on a limited budget, working long hours. My Mother promised me my first four advertisements to help me along, and that is how I came to be known as HAPPY SMILING CHIMNEY SERVICES.
During my early sweeping career I came across a considerable number of poorly installed and badly maintained appliances and flues. It was then I decided that if you wanted to see a job correctly and safely carried out then why not ‘Do it yourself’. My Son Jeremy was working as a Lead Flat Roofer helping with the Chimney Business in his quiet winter months, however, as my work increased and being a qualified HETAS engineer he took on more and more responsibility until in 2004 we amalgamated our businesses setting up as a Partnership.
So in addition to sweeping and maintaining chimney flues, we now supply and fit Multifuel wood burning stoves and Stainless Steel liners with all the additional extras i.e. Pots, Bird Guards etc. that go with the job.
We have two dedicated chimney sweeps, Tom and Ricky to carry out our daily sweeping along with many smaller important jobs, which are vital to our day-to-day operation. We also work for The National Trust, Bath & Wells Diocese, House Letting Agency’s, Architects and Hotels. As an established family business we pride ourselves on quality of service with a ‘can do’ attitude, working with our customers to obtain the best results for the price quoted.
In addition to fitting a wide range of Wood Burners, we can also supply and install Fire surrounds and Hearths in Natural Slate, Marble, Stone and hand carved reclaimed wood. We also build new, or carry out repairs to existing chimney stacks with lead flashing, re-pointing and making waterproof.
We supply and fit all types of Chimney Pots, British made stainless steel guards, anti down draught Cowls and Rota vents.
We are registered installation engineers for the Eldfast system, which is a Ceramic heat resistant lining material, including also the Isokern Solid flue system.
We can also supply and fit parts for a wide range of Wood Burning and Multifuel stoves, along with household safety Carbon Monoxide Detectors.
Safety being our watchword with all work carried out.
