Ny garanti vid köp av skorstenshjälp gör kunden till vinnare

Upptill fyra gånger säkrare skorsten än vad myndigheterna kräver.

SkorstensFolket Sverige är först med exklusiv täthetsgaranti.

Många villaägare passar just nu på att renovera skorstenen med hjälp av rotavdraget. Och behovet är stort – uppemot en miljon äldre skorstenar kan vara i behov av renovering, bedömer entreprenadföretagen inom SkorstensFolket Sverige.

– Det beror på att äldre skorstenar är murade innan byggreglerna ställde krav på täthet, och att skorstenen hela tiden utsätts för extrema förhållanden. Från flera hundra grader varm rök inuti pipan till minusgrader ovanför taket, säger Ingvar Liljeström, ordförande för SkorstensFolket Sverige AB.

SkorstensFolket Sverige värnar hårt om kvaliteten på produkterna. Det gör att man nu kan erbjuda upptill fyra gånger bättre täthet än vad det ställs krav på i byggreglerna. Dessutom erbjuds marknadens längsta konsumentköpsgarantier – hela 25 år för det unika systemet FuranFlex.

– Vi är först med att erbjuda kunderna detta, och vi gör det för kundernas skull. Det ska aldrig råda något tvivel om att våra renoveringar uppfyller det vi lovat kunden. Därför rekommenderar vi alltid våra kunder att låta sotaren besiktiga våra arbeten, för att få en opartisk bedömning. Och vårt ansvar mot kunden blir ännu tydligare med vår täthetsgaranti, säger Ingvar Liljeström.

SkorstensFolket Sverige är landets ledande entreprenörsföretag inom skorstensrenovering med en omsättning av 300 miljoner för år 2008. Via 40 lokalt arbetande företag från Treriksröset till Smygehuk servas alltifrån villaägare till fastighetsbolag. Huvudkontoret är beläget i Stockholm. SkorstensFolket Sverige har marknadens bredaste produktutbud inom skorstensrenovering men erbjuder även ett fullskalesortiment för nyinstallation av skorstenar.

New guarantee for purchase of chimney servicing makes the customer the winner

Chimney up to four times more secure than officially required.

SkorstensFolket Sverige is first with exclusive tightness guarantee.

Many home owners are right now renovating the chimney with the help of the ROT deduction (renovation, rebuilding, and extensions deduction). And the need is large – up to a million older chimneys may be in need of renovation, according an estimate from the construction businesses within SkorstensFolket Sverige.

- It depends on whether older chimneys are mortared prior to the building rules placing demands on tightness, and on whether the chimney is constantly exposed to the extreme conditions. From smoke heated to hundreds of degrees within the flue, to negative temperatures above the roof, says Ingvar Liljeström, spokesperson for SkorstensFolket Sverige AB.

SkorstensFolket Sverige insists upon the quality of the products. This means tightness up to four times better than that demanded in the building rules can be offered. Furthermore, the market's longest consumer purchase guarantees are offered – a whole 25 years for the unique FuranFlex system.

- We are first to make this offer to the customers, and we do so for the customers' sake. There should never be any doubt that our renovations fulfil our promise to the customer. Therefore, we always recommend that our customers allow the chimney sweep to inspect our work, in order to get an impartial judgement. And our responsibility to the customer becomes even clearer with our tightness guarantee, says Ingvar Liljeström.

The facts
SkorstensFolket Sverige is the country's leading entrepreneurs' association within chimney renovation, with a turnover of 300 million kronor for 2008. Through 40 local operators from Treriksröset to Smygehuk, everything from home owners to property companies are served. The head office is located in Stockholm. SkorstensFolket Sverige has the market's broadest product range within chimney renovation, but also offers a full selection for new chimney installations.

I'm a Swedish to English translator with a diverse background. I have experience of writing and editing in English and while I'm comfortable with calling myself a generalist, I lean towards literary, engineering and scientific fields, since these are the areas in which I have the greatest experience.

I have a degree in physics and I've worked in a range of jobs. Following my studies, I worked within the utilities sector as a CAD technician and GIS specialist. I moved from there into oil and gas, where I worked on gathering chemical data and producing safety data for a huge range of oil-derivative products.

Following this stint, I moved into freelance work as a media analyst, studying media content of various kinds and assisting in the production of reports used by marketers. It was during this period that I developed my writing skills to an even higher level, due to the demands of writing reports for senior executives at some of the largest companies in the world, including media and publishing businesses.

It was during this period that I moved to Sweden and began to learn the language. I've lived in several parts of the country and am now fluent in Swedish. I've been here long enough to have obtained my citizenship and I reside permanently in Skåne today.

I moved on a few years ago from media analysis into both freelance translation and design. Today, I run a print design and illustration business alongside my freelance translation and copyediting business. I've accumulated a lot of knowledge through the twists and turns of my career, which allows me to work comfortably within a very broad number of fields as a translator. The curiosity which has driven me forwards serves me well in this field, as it means I'm very comfortable with research and happy to get acquainted with the demands and specific terminology of new fields. I'm as happy with literary and poetic work as I am with the technical or formal.



"Roger helped me translating parts of my latest book from Swedish to English. I was stunned when I read the text from Roger, I was really impressed with the way he interpreted my words and made the text even better than the original. I look forward to working with Roger again and will definitely recommend him to friends and colleagues looking for an outstanding translator."

Ingrid Skarp, freelance writer and novelist
