Burston and Son Chimney Services was established in 2016 after I took over from retiring independent sweep, Chris Bateman.  Chris had been sweeping for over 20 years as Chris Bateman Chimney Services.  I was fortunate enough to learn the trade through Chris as his apprentice and took over when he was confident I was ready and knowledgeable enough.

I stumbled into chimney sweeping after a 26-year career in the Royal Marines came to an end, and purely by luck bumped into Chris where we agreed to work together until he felt I was ready.  I completed further industry training and accreditation with HETAS, The Guild of Master Sweeps.  I have conducted further CPD training and will continue to do so as I aim to provide the best service I can with the most up to date knowledge.  My future are to complete the new NVQ which has been developed to afford chimney sweeping a more professional status, and to aim towards Master Sweep status.

I currently provide the following services;

Chimney Sweeping and Advice (including Thatched and Historical Properties)

Bird Nest Removal with CCTV Confirmation

Creosote Treatment

Stove Maintenance and Repair

Cowl Fitting

Re-Potting and Re-Crowning

Later this year I will be able to offer Chimney Surveys
