"Excellent Service"

"An excellent service completed on time and to budget. I will certainly used them again."

“Quick and Efficient”

“Quick and efficient even in awful weather conditions.”

“Wouldn’t Ask Anyone Else”

“We first contacted Barr Chimney Specialists in 2003, they did an excellent job then, so we didn't need to search around for someone to help us this time, Barr Chimneys quickly and efficiently dealt with the problem and left the stove looking as new. Thanks Barr Chimney Specialist, we wouldn't ask anyone else.”

“Efficient and Courteous”

“Mark and Nigel are always efficient, on time and courteous. They have recently removed our old stove and Installed the new log burner along with the mantel. When they removed the old one we didn't actually know what our options were, Mark and Nigel steered us through the possibilities and we are over the moon with the result. We would highly recommend them.”

“Tidy and Professional”

“Clean, tidy and professional. Indeed other contractors would not touch the property. Setting a date and time for all the other trades was not easy but they like the others were flexible. The detail of what they planned to do was limited BUT they did all that HETAS required. They might have made suggestions on the stove. There is no question that I would not recommend them. They are local, a family concern and contactable as well as being firm and fair on the business side which should ensure their longevity as one needs them for the future.”

“Friendly, Professional, and Knowledgeable”

“We would highly recommend Mark & Nigel, they fitted our own multi stove and lined the chimney. They are friendly, professional and knowledgeable in all aspects . They explained the most efficient way to use our multi stove to get the best use from it and how to prolong its life span. Thank goodness we were recommended Barrs Chimneys.”

“Courteous and Clean Work”

“Excellent service, extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, courteous and clean work. Would highly recommend Mark and Nigel. They fitted a new wood burner for me, well executed. Because of their expertise, they saved me money compared to another company that wanted to put in a flue liner, which was not needed.”

“Efficient, Tidy, and Polite”

“We've used them twice now, once to sweep and safety-check a disused chimney and then a revisit to install a bird cowl and seal an unused stack. On both occasions Mark and Nigel were friendly, efficient, tidy and polite, and obviously know their stuff! Also great value for a job well done, thank you very much.”

“Professional and Knowledgeable”

“My friend recommended Barr Chimneys to myself and i am so pleased I decided to use their services. Mark and Nigel swept our chimney and replaced our old cowl with a new cowl on a very high chimney stack. They were both very professional and knowledgeable and offered a friendly and efficient service. I would highly recommend them both and will be using them again and recommending them to my friends.”

“Well Priced”

“Very pleased with the work carried out by Barr chimneys. No mess, well priced and we are very pleased with the results, thank you.”

“Extremely Helpful”

“After using Barr Chimney Specialists to sweep the chimney of my previous Victorian terrace house, I knew just who to contact when we moved into a new house with a chimney and no fire! We decided to have a wood burner installed and Mark was extremely helpful in going through the different options with us and helping us to understand what was needed and what might be the best. We are so happy with the service we received from Barr Chimneys as well as Seymours Fireplaces in Southea. Between them, they have provided us with a warm and cosy living room and a beautiful feature too. Thank you!”

“Very Happy”

“Nigel and Mark fitted a wood-burning stove and chimney liner with no problems, no fuss and no mess. The house has 3 floors and a tall chimney stack so access was potentially tricky, however they devised a safe route just using ladders avoiding the cost of scaffolding. The price was exactly as quoted and they arrived on schedule. Overall I'm very happy and would gladly recommend them.”

“No Fuss”

“The guys were great they arrived on time and fitted my stove and dropped the liner down with no fuss. Very helpful and easy to work with.”

“Works Immaculately”

“Called Mark based on a recommendation and was not let down. He is extremely knowledgeable and works immaculately. We had a new stove and lining installed and it was done so with no fuss and minimal mess. All for what was a very reasonable price. Would recommend Barr Chimneys to anyone.”

"Excellent Workmanship"

“As a NACS certified sweep I've swept many a Barr installation, and so when last Jan I decided to have my own log burner installed at home, it was to the Barr brothers I turned. Having had four solid months of use from my stove, I've just swept the flue and can report with pleasure the excellent workmanship provided by Mark and Nigel. This chimney sweep gives two sooty thumbs up to Barr Chimney Specialists. Thank you, gents.”

“They Are Brilliant”

“Sadly these guys suffer from a serious problem known as 'Portsmouth Football Club itis'....... Otherwise they are brilliant, none better I can't recommend them enough.”

“Reliable, Clean, and Tidy”

“I have used these Barr chimney specialists for our annual chimney sweep for years. They also fitted our wood burner a few years ago. Highly recommended. They are reliable, clean & tidy, honest, safety conscious & genuinely nice guys!”

“Great Job”

“Just had my chimney lined and connected to log burner, old chimney with some problems. Great job & great service. Highly recomended.”

“Knowledgeable and Efficient”

“Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Swept disused chimney, checked for safe use with an open fire, installed bird guard and sealed an unused flue. Would highly recommend."

“Great Service”

“Great service in installing my new log burner today. Happily answered any queries I had before hand. Glad you were recommended, will certainly recommend you.”

“Five-Star Service as Usual”

“Five-star service as usual. Prompt, efficient and cheerful. Who could ask for more? And HOW!”

“Very Knowledgeable”

“We'd been having a problem with damp, which was letting water in through our chimney. Mark came over and sorted the whole thing out for us! He was very knowledgeable on all things chimney! We'll definitely be in touch again when we want our wood stove installed! 10/10 would recommend.”
