Flue condition inspections (often referred to as CCTV surveys, flue surveys or chimney surveys) provide a detailed examination of existing solid fuel appliances (open fires, wood burners etc.) and the associated flue system.
Quantum Chimney Services offer detailed reports to accompany the physical inspection, which assess the safety and compliance of any existing solid fuel appliance and associated flue system.
For any project involving the renovation, refurbishment or alteration of existing fire openings, flues or chimneys, it is essential that a flue condition inspection is undertaken at an early stage so a full scope of works required is understood by all involved.
The results of a detailed inspection will determine whether an existing fire opening / appliance, chimney and flue shaft are suitable for continued use, whether there are defects that pose a risk to the property and occupants that need attention, whether a new flue system is required or whether a proposed installation is suitable.
Our experience shows that any issues or defects that are found at an early stage of a project, can be assessed and rectified in a much more cost effective manner than if left to later in the projects work schedule.
In thatch, Listed and Heritage properties, our knowledge and expertise can help guide the clients on the best solutions going forward in a manner sympathetic to the property whilst also achieving compliance if defects are observed or alterations have been proposed.
