Options For Your Chimney Needs

Express Way are here to ensure all of your needs and requirements are met. No two clients are the same – our services are customized to suit your budget and individual needs, so that you get the right chimney for your property. When your chimney is installed correctly and properly the first time, you won’t have to worry about a fireplace that doesn’t run properly or costly repair work in the future – our team will ensure it works well from the minute it is installed. If small cracks are found in your chimney crown, we can apply a crown coat (a flexible waterproof sealant) to seal in gaps and protect against water intrusion. This can offer you long-term peace of mind, and when professionally installed, carries a 15-year warranty. If you need service, Express Way can help!

Chimney Supply And Installation

Whether you’re building new or looking to renovate your existing property, the team here at If you need expert advice on what chimney will be best for your property, our team can sit down and discuss your needs, requirements and budgets and make some recommendations. From there, our team can arrange the purchase and installation of your new chimney. Alternatively, if you’ve already purchased a chimney, we can take care of the installation process. Regular maintenance and repair of your chimney and chimney flue are important in keeping your family safe and warm for many years to come.  The function of a chimney is to draw smoke and gases away from the burning fire and out of your home. This is not merely a matter of convenience, though. The smoke from a fire can contain dangerous gases, among them carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless gas that can cause illness, or even death, in large amounts. You need to make sure your chimney is well-maintained and inspected at least once a year to protect yourself and your family.

Chimney Service FAQs

The chimney sweep will first tarp off the area surrounding your stove or fireplace.  The door is removed or opened fully that then has a cover placed over it. An industrial soot vacuum will be inserted into the firebox through the cover and turned on. Through another hole in the door cover, the chimney sweeps brushes are inserted, connected together in 1 meter lengths until the brush head is pushed to the very top inside the cowl (top cap). The cleaning process then commences until the entire flue has been cleaned thoroughly. The brushes are then removed, the cover pulled away, and contents are vacuumed out.

After the sweep is finished cleaning we will inform you of any issues, parts missing, or make recommendations for repairs.

An average sweep from arriving at your household to leaving is 45 minutes. However, not all log fires are the same and due to variety of reasons (rusted pins or bolts, method of sweeping, or distance to bring in the tools) can take longer. The chimney sweep will inform you if it will take longer.

We ensure that there is no mess. However, there will be a loud noise made during the sweep that will last for 5 minutes or so.  Our chimney sweep will inform you prior to starting the sweep. Due to the noise, we recommend that animals are placed outside to not frighten them.

If you can inform us whether it is a freestanding fire or an inbuilt (sits inside a wall cavity of where a brick open fire used to be) that helps us. Additionally, almost all logfire manufacturers like to proudly label their fires with their branding – usually on the front.  If that is not visible, all logfires are required to have an identity tag on the fire – for freestanding fires this is on the back of the fire. For inbuilt fires this is not accessible. For example, if you told us that your fireplace is a Masport inbuilt or a Woodsman freestanding fire that is enough for us in most cases. Our chimney sweeps will be able to tell the make and model of your fireplace.

No. In special cases roof access is required to inspect the cowl or for particular fires we have to sweep from the roof.

Creosote is a flammable substance that builds up in your chimney and fireplace as a result of burning wood. With build up it creates draw issues leading to poor performance, smoke blowing back into the room, and can lead to chimney fires if not cleared.

Logfires can retain heat for up to 24 hours.  For our chimney sweeps to do their job safely and efficiently, we ask that you do not light your fire the prior day to us arriving.

Once a year.  This is recommended by all  manufacturers.
