Darren has always had an interest in the long history associated with solid fuel, and a particular passion for stoves and chimneys. In 2007 Darren identified the growing demand for independent installers, so decided it to be the perfect opportunity to develop his passions and to start a career within the solid fuel industry.
Darren was fortunate to gain experience working with a reputable chimney repair company in Yorkshire. In this time he gained valuable skills from an extremely experienced chimney engineer. During this time, Darren worked on a large diversity of projects, from small cottages to huge stately homes, which gave him the best possible start to his chosen career.
Darren was keen to become a qualified HETAS installer, as he knew an understanding of all the current regulations is paramount to ensure a safe installation. So Darren created a portfolio of work which helped contribute to the successful completion of the HETAS engineers course and exam tests.
From these foundations Chimneycure was born, and since then Darren has been doing what he enjoys best, working on chimneys and installing stoves throughout Derbyshire. Darren love’s the challenge of the most complex installations, and prides himself on his attention to detail, which leads to a growing number of recommendations for his services.
Darren Redfern (Owner) says:
What makes Chimneycure so different from many is that I offer my customers a real personnel service, I listen to what my customers what and do my upmost to achieve this in the end result. The skills and methods that I use ensures that you receive a no fuss, and no mess service. All the work is carried out by myself cleanly and efficiently, ensuring you spend less money in the long run, and you can have total piece of mind that your property is looked after by somebody that cares, and wants your repeat custom.
When Darren is not working he enjoys spending time with his wife Sarah, and three daughters. Usually participating in family activities such as walking, cycling, and camping.
