Hi Tony,

I’d just wanted to say thank you for coming out so quickly and completing the compliance report on our stove.

We needed a professional inspection and report and by employing Flue Check Ltd and Tony Preston we were able to get immediate results by sending the report to the contractor who has taken steps to rectify the works.  It has absolutely given us peace of mind for ourselves and for our potential tenants who will be living in the property.

Kind regards

Jane Davies
