Chimney repair to stop black goop coming into house. - Fireplaces & Flues job in Tiverton, Devon

Job description

  • Chimney repointing / repair

Customer description

We have a wood-burning stove which was installed in 2016. An insulated flue was put in. This year we are getting black tar-like goop coming down into the area around the stove. It might be a fault in the capping that was installed or the bricks and/or the stonework of the chimney might need pointing. The house is an old Devon stone cottage at least 200 years old. It is 2 storey plus since it is on a slope. We are just outside Bampton- up Ford Road to T then right on Huntsham road for 400 yards.


Feedback for Mike Moffatt Building Services

Very friendly and knowledgeable. Came immediately to look at job. Ordered special waterproofing material and came back when promised to fill gaps in chimney mortar and then seal it all. He was confident it would work but it has rained yet to test it! Reasonable cost too. Recommended.
