#BetterHomeCover #HomeCoverAt Better Home Cover, we are very upfront about every cost. No surprise charges!

#BetterHomeCover #FridayFAQs #HomeCover #HomeCoverUK Did you know, flue regulations now state that flues must be accessible and visible so that cracks or loose joints can be spotted. If your flue is not accessible, e.g. it goes into the ceiling, a Gas Safe engineer will probably need to install an access panel.
