I was impressed with their promptness at every stage of the process: estimating, contract delivery, obtaining the permit, and most importantly for the work itself, all occurred as scheduled. They handled all the details, and met every promise they made to me. Work was completed in a very professional manner. You can tell when a contractor takes pride in his work. And by the way, I had never heard of them before, only learning about this contractor through Angie's List.

Absolutely amazing! As I mentioned, this is the first home I have owned with a wood burning fireplace. I just moved into the home a month ago and before the "season" I wanted to make sure the fireplace was in good condition to start up. They showed up on time to our scheduled appointment. They gave me the education I needed on a wood burning fireplace. I did not have any knowledge of previous owner actually using the fireplace and as it turns out they used it a lot and some pieces needed replacing and it also needed a good cleaning. Before anything was done, they walked me through the process and I was present so I could actually see what they were doing. As I was watching them clean, I am very thankful and so appreciative of their honesty since this fireplace was extremely dirty and was a fire hazard waiting to happen had I not called them and had it done. I would highly recommend them to anybody. They were very respectful of my home, put down drop cloths and removed their shoes even when I told them it wasn't necessary. A fireplace is not something you should just "assume" is in good shape and this company will make sure you and your family are safe. Can't say enough. The price above included the inspection, the cleaning and the replacing of the gas log. (extremely fair)

Mace,



Thanks for your email. With the unpredictable rainy weather that has hit us and will continue to do so, we're backlogged. I'm only assigning the masons to full repairs right now so option two isn't available for months. But I can discount the full repair (option one) another $100 if that works. So instead of $2500 you'd pay $2150 with all your discounts. Let me know. I just added a mason crew that's primarily working the Plymouth area so I can take some time out of the equation but you're still looking at possibly 3/4 weeks. Sooner with decent weather. I hope this helps, let me know.



Best Regards,

Thanks
Albany Chimney Covers Provider Name Locked
..how far out are you booking jobs if I would like to move ahead? Would most likely do the less expensive of the 2 options. Mace -----Original Message-----

Mace, Thanks for your email. With this wet weather I suddenly have all the time in the world! Okay, the $49 gives you a $250 masonry discount. So you have $250 on the books right now. We do the brick overlay job--you're talking about a stone facade or brick veneer, right? That type of job would require quite a lead time, not sure if we're able to do this within your expectations. If you can give me more info on this, let me know.



Thanks,

No problem
Albany Chimney Covers Provider Name Locked
- 1. does the $49.00 fee go toward my project fee? 2. Is the $250.00 "special" then deducted from the project quote? 3. Does your company also do the brick overlay jobs where current bricking can be covered up with another brick? thanks, Mace -----Original Message-----

Mace,



Sorry, been swamped and got in late. Too late for phone calls.



You have a few questions on the estimate & options I provided.



Go ahead and email me with you questions and I will answer.



Sometimes when I get this swamped it's the best and most efficient way to get things done.

arrived on time to work on my A/C unit, upon arrival he introduced himself, made small talk and went straight to work. After looking at my A/C unit he came down to advise me with pictures of what was causing the issue, and explained to me in detail what needed to be done. He was able to get the job done at a fast pace. With all the work that needed to be done for my A/C unit to work correctly, he charged me a reasonable price. I would highly recommend to
Albany Chimney Covers Provider Name Locked
to any with plumbing, heating, and cooling problems. I will definitely be the first to call

.

Did not see much value in their inspection service since it was more of a prelude of placing a bid on work. I understand if contractors place a fee on putting in bids but my expectation was that there would be a honest evaluation of my options for shoring up an older chimney. In the end I was given a 10k figure for the cost of work. Was not pleased with the service and unimpressed by their operation.

This company was excellent. I received an estimate from another company that wanted to reline my chimney. They supplied an estimate of $5500. I asked
Albany Chimney Covers Provider Name Locked
to suppply an estimate. The owner
Albany Chimney Covers Provider Name Locked
said he didn't believe all of the work estimated by the other company was necessary. He said he would know for sure once the cap was removed. He supplied two prices to me, one for the work he actually performed and the second for the worst case scenario. This quote was $2500 lower than the other quote I received. I gave the job to him and when he removed the cap, he said the flues, which had become detached, could be reattached versus having to install liners. I was very impressed with his honesty and the work performed.

They arrived on time went up on the roof and cleaned the chase cover. Then they coated it with Rustoleum paint. They were in and out in under 30 minutes. Great job, very satisfied, to replace the chase cover would have cost in the neighborhood of $800! Would definitely have them come back in five years to recoat.

Honestly, I am completely and totally exasperated with this company. If you want a really professional job, hire true professionals or do it yourself. If you want a cheaper, adequate job with tons of frustration and loose ends, use this company. The top of 2 bricks on my hearth have digs in it from when they put the
Albany Chimney Covers Provider Name Locked
in, they gave us some bricks, but if we want it repaired we have to do the work or hire somebody. My insert is missing it's knob (they NEVER gave us) and we have tried to get for ALMOST 9 MONTHS now, and they are giving us some lame excuse they can't get the part, it is completely and totally ridiculous. From the start, they were bad, our salesman didn't show up and didn't call for our first appointment and then gave some excuse after we had to call the main office and complain. It only got worse from there, I have been complaining to my husband the entire time, and he keeps trying to deal with them, but even he had enough (finally) when he wanted them to fix up the crappy job they did on chimney cap, and they give us an $8,000.00 estimate to completely re-build our chimney. A. Our chimney does not need to be completely re-built, and that was NOT what we asked for in any way, shape or form and B. If I ever did decide to have my chimney re-built, there is no way on earth I would ever hire this unprofessional company again. I am not too thrilled with
Albany Chimney Covers Provider Name Locked
either, the missing knob and the fact that the flashing around the
Albany Chimney Covers Provider Name Locked
is terrible and cheap looking. We have purchased some tiles we are going to install ourselves, or hire a true professional, but we have had enough of these clowns. If you like playing phone tag all the time, getting excuse after excuse after excuse, unprofessional results and taking lots of aspirin, then by all means ignore this review, otherwise, buyer beware.
