  • Chimney removal

  • Chimney pot maintenance

    Whilst the chimney stack may be in fine fettle, terracotta pots can suffer from freeze damage due to the porous nature of the clay. We are able to source a suitable pot, often of the same vintage and then fit to retain the aesthetic finish of your roof.

  • Lead Flashing

    Chimneys are often joined to the roofline using lead flashing sheets and strips however it is possible for the lead to become damaged which can lead to water leaks through the roof. We are able to survey the joints and identify areas that require attention and then produce a watertight join that will survive even the most horizontal of Edinburgh rains!
