Formed in 1975 in collaboration with the then British Coal, Specialist Building Services have been involved continuously with the flue lining and solid fuel industry.
We incorporate Eastern Flue Lining Systems (East Anglia) & Shellcast Chimneys (West Midlands/Cheshire). We are founder members of the National Association of Chimney Engineers- formerly known as NACLE.
We are approved installers of all types of flue lining including; Concrete Cast Insitu, Twin Wall Sytsems, Eldfast Landyvent, Pre Cast Pumice Liners, Flex - Rigid Stainless Steel and all our work is fully guaranteed. We also carry out chimney reaming and CCTV surveys, in fact we developed the UK's 1st chimney CCTV camera. Over a number of years we have worked with specialist thatched roof consultants and insurance companies.
To improve standards within the industry, the government, in association with HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing and Approval Scheme) has introduced new building regulations (Document J 2002) that require home owners to obtain Building Regulation Approval from their local authority, prior to installing a chimney lining or fitting a solid fuel appliance.
Therefore home owners who use a HETAS registered company do not need to apply for this approval.
Our client base has grown over the years, mainly down to personal recommendations and include local authorities, private estates, property developers, Ministry of Defense, Government contracts and the National Trust.
