Chimney Cowls, Bird Guards and Flue Terminals.

Journeyman Chimney Services have been professionally diagnosing chimney & flue problems and fitting the correct chimney cowl, bird guard or flue terminal to solve & cure common issues successfully and, we are very pleased to say, for large numbers of very satisfied customers.

It’s an often over looked fact that fitting the wrong flue terminal or cowl can ultimately be potentially dangerous (CO poisoning) and of course it will not solve the original problem. Journeyman are able to offer practical and safe solutions, based upon our professional experience as chimney sweeps, of the most common and some not so common chimney & flue problems.

Dangerous Cowls and Flue Terminations…Chimney cowl inserts

Sometimes cowls and terminals for disused flues only like these on the right  are mistakenly fitted to live flues serving open fires and stoves. This is potentially hazardous and will affect the flue’s performance. If you think you have one of these or are unsure what terminal you require please contact us for advice.

Fitting the correct Cowl, Bird Guard or Flue Terminal…

There is a comprehensive range of chimney pots, cowls and bird guards available to help solve the myriad of problems encountered including down draught, poor up draught or draw*, rain entry and birds nesting in the flue. * Air supply and ventilation for the appliance or open fire and the chimney and flue system as a whole will be inspected as a matter of course.
