I had some work requiring the removal and support of a chimney breast here in Coleford but after seeking the services of local contractors was disappointed when they did not show up. Had to call in the services of Hylton Chimneys in London who came and saved the day. The men were polite , kept the place clean and tidy and worked to a high standard. The Building Control Inspection was also done and passed. On the overall I was very impressed with the work and their services are highly recommended.

Good points: The 2 Hylton Chimneys men were brilliant as they removed the steels and they kept the place clean and tidy.The carpenter knew what he was doing and the work was done to a high standard. The Building Control inspection was completed as requested and passed.
Bad points: the tube strike affected the start of the project as well as the work flow, but I was informed in good time and managed to get on with other things.
On the overall I am happy and well done to Hylton Chimneys.
