Mrs Fenerth-Lyons

James came to sweep the chimney and quote for installation of my antique wood burner. As usual the sweep was done efficiently with no trace of soot, dust etc in my home afterwards.

The Cromptons quote was significantly cheaper than the various quotes I’d received. The work was done with no delay (on a Saturday!) and was a really high standard.

James is friendly and a pleasure to have in my home. I’m delighted with the installation and have confidence in the quality and most importantly the safety of the fit. I can’t imagine why anyone would ever go elsewhere!

I know it might reoccur but it’s not worrying me now because I know Brian is on hand to say the day!

Such a lovely change to receive such fine service and totally above + beyond!

Fire Swept  for Mr P Brooks

Just wanted to send a note of thanks for the great service today. Firstly I had my fire swept and during it I asked about a problem with birds so Carl (I think as that was the name given when I booked) said I could have a cowl fitted to solve the problem and low and behold within 2 hours he’d been ‎off to get one and fitted it which involved using multiple ladders on a foul day and a slippy roof.

Excellent work ‎and very much appreciated.
