Job Title: Company owner and founder.
Qualifications: Registered master sweep, NVQ qualified sweep, HETAS approved sweep and OFTEC solid fuel installer. I’m also a trainer for the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps.
Favourite stove: Woodwarm – all round quality.
Most hated stove: Any stove with screwed in baffle plates. There’s no need and they almost always seize up.
Favourite piece of equipment: My Tamar brushes and 4ft rods. Love a traditional, manual sweep.
Favourite holiday destination to date: Berlin, it’s fantastic, vibrant city. Russia was fascinating but I also love Scandinavia.
Best part of my job: Seeing our loyal customers return year after year. That’s the best feedback you can get really.
Worst part of my job: Dangerous/non-compliant installations. There are far too many of them, and most only get picked up when a property is sold.
Stoves or open fires? Open fires. They get a bad press but nothing quite beats the look of them, especially if they are an original feature.
Coal or wood? Coal on an open fire, smokeless fuel on a stove.
Tea or coffee? Coffee – no milk or sugar please. Nespresso if you’re feeling generous!
