Essex Stove and Chimneys are a family run business. We are now a third-generation company. Drawing on the many years of experience within the company we can help with any kind of fireplace or chimney issues.
After many years based in north London the family moved the business out to our present location on the edge of Epping forest. Here on the farm, we have room for our large stocks of original antique fireplaces. In our workshops we restore period items back to their former glory.
With the extra space we are also able to display a range of modern high spec stoves, these units all compliant the latest clean burn regulations.
Whilst we are proud of our history we are at the forefront of modern technology and qualification within the industry. The days of a chimney sweep turning up with a few rods and a brush are long gone, nowadays the use of CCTV cameras and pressure testing equipment is commonplace. We have even recently invested in a drone for aerial survey work. Essex stoves have taken to the air.
The thing we are most proud of is our commitment to training the next generation within the industry, we were involved in the first formal qualification within the industry from the very beginning and are happy to say as a company we now have three fully qualified chimney sweeps. Amazingly we have both the youngest and the oldest NVQ qualified sweeps in the country. We are also qualified HETAS and GAS SAFE installers.
