Why Choose Us?

Together Jon McDougall, Matt Crockford and Peter Harris form the only professional firm of chimney sweeps in West Berkshire.

Jon McDougall, the owner of WILKINS CHIMNEY SWEEP (West Berks), began his association with WILKINS CHIMNEY SWEEP in August 2013 when he joined the team as an employee. He enjoyed his new job so much that he decided to buy the West Berkshire franchise. Jon has previously worked for Vodafone in Newbury, A-Plan Insurance and the AA in Thatcham. Jon has a genuine passion for customer service and enjoys interacting with his customers.

Jon lives in Newbury with his partner and daughter and their 2 cats. In his spare time he is a very keen cyclist but he still uses the van when he is sweeping.

Working alongside Jon is Matt Crockford who joined the business in the summer of 2015. Matt also lives in Newbury with his partner Sarah and their 2 German Shepherd dogs.

Peter Harris, who formerly owned Wilkins Chimney Sweep (Newbury), still works in the business part time. He is a HETAS approved chimney sweep and serves on the Association of Professional Independent Chimney Sweeps (APICS) steering committee; bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the company. Peter is also business advisor and mentor in his role as franchisor.

Jon, Matt and Peter are members of the APICS and work to their code of conduct. They are also Solid Fuel Association (SFA) approved sweeps and carry £5million of public liability insurance plus professional indemnity cover and are police checked.

They offer chimney sweeping, nest removal, cages, caps and cowl fitting and are also happy to provide advice on anything chimney related.

Look out for The ‘Sootmobiles’ – these three distinctly liveried vans have personalised 5 OOT number plates.

Wilkins always deliver an excellent service. They go beyond simply ‘doing the job’ and are happy to provide advice regarding our chimney and particularly in relation to safety and efficiency. Very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
