    chimney capped/ balloon/ other advice wanted 10th Dec 07 at 9:57 PM
    hi there.

    I am currently renovating a property which has 2 chinneys (3 fires) which I want to leave revealed (the whole vase of flowers or logs thing). the fires need sweeping. After that i am a little puzzed. the ballon thing seems a common soloution and im not sure what capping involves. Others just shove some black bags up. can someone advise on what is best to do and also what capping involves and what the cost might be. Thanks in advance
