was able to come look at the challenge in short order to let me know if moving the fireplace would be a reasonable option. He was knowledgable and we agreed on a course of action and a price. He followed through just as we planned ...more and completed the job on time and on budget. "

"This guy is bad news -- he cashed the check for one-half the cost but has not done the work we agreed upon three months ago. He has made no effort to contact me and has not responded to my voice mail and email messages.

is friendly and well informed. His workers are professional and his roofing sub (
) was great on the flashing redo and other problem. The chimney is now very beautiful and the price was good.
took on the job where some others acted like they could only do one or the other. ...more The flashing had to be tucked into the grout as part of the rebuild and he timed it just right. The roof is metal and the roofing sub explained everything and fixed some other bad spots. The chimney looks so much better than what the previous owner had done which had caused so many problems over the past few years. VERY BIG HEADACHE GONE NOW - THANKS
"They were very professional, friendly, and courteous, came over to look at the chimney, took some notes, and called the next day with an estimate. They worked very well, did top quality work, and completed the job in a day and a half. And they did a great job cleaning up."
brown came to determine why I was getting water in my fireplace when it rained hard even though we had new flashing and a new cap on the chimney. He found gaps in the flashing and repaired it for me but said that was not the main cause of the leak. He gave me a very thorough explanation of how the fireplace and chimney works ...more and what was needed, explaining that waterproofing was the next logical step.
even picked up pieces of tile and nails that were left from the roofer who didn't clean up after his job. Always called to keep me notified when the roof was too wet or rain was anticipated too soon -- must have 8 hours to waterproof and let dry after the chimney is dry. Couldn't have been more courteous. Insisted on taking his shoes off before coming into the house. Would not sit on a chair because he felt his clothes were dirty from being on a hot roof. Wonderful service!"
showed up on time and evaluated the chimney, topcap and flashing repairs needed. He was very forthright regarding what must be done vs what what optional. Very professional, honest, and knowledgable. I will use them for the repairs when the time comes.
were both extremely knowlegable about ALL aspects of chimney work. They know everything one can know about them I believe! Every question I had for them, (and I had MANY!!) they would answer in an appropriate manner and explained to me things I didn't understand. ...more
One of our chimney's hadn't been cleaned in years; it was used for burning coal and had been sealed off for many, many years.
used this high tech device to see what was inside the chimney and they found some bricks that were supposed to be attached by
, but the
over the years had turned to dust!
This surprizing "turn of events" didn't phase them at all and they took great care to ensure that they could safely and properly remove the bricks and clean out the chimney.
We have already hired them to come back and put in a stainless steel liner in the front chimney so we can have a wood burning
in front of the shallow fireplace.
I usually don't write review, but I made an exception. I am a Type A personality when it comes to wanting people who will take great care in doing repairs on our home. I pestered them with questions and when they came, I knew I was in such good hands I could just leave them alone and know that all the work they were doing would be done expertly. They also did a fine job in preventing all the black coal that was in the chimney from coming into our living room too!
are both very smart, college educated and definately know what they are doing! "
"A neighbor had telephoned to tell me that I had a small shrub growing out the top of one chimney flue. I live in a 1917 bungalow.
responded most quickly for an estimate, showing up the next day. The other two contractors weren't able to come by until later the following week.
After inspecting both chimneys and all ...more flues as well as the furnace in the crawlspace basement,
explained that the
fix would be to simply cap the four open flues, both used and unused, but that the longer-term solution would be to insert a steel flue liner as well as a cap. The second chimney already had this for the flue to the gas fireplace. I opted for the liner alternative — best to do the job properly.
They scheduled the work for 14 days out, which suited my schedule. They called 3 days later to say that they had an unexpected opening if I wanted the work done the next day. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take them up on the offer. The scheduled day, they arrived as scheduled first thing in the morning. Within a few hours, they were finished (reducing the original estimate by a couple hundred because the work had gone so quickly and smoothly).
I did have —because I always do— several technical questions. They answered all of them fully and clearly. Great, efficient, and exceedingly affable fellows. I heartily recommend them and would hire them again without hesitation. "
"sorry, don't have time for all the details but can honestly say that at 9 months pregnant, i found it worthwhile to stop doing my huge "to do" list and take a moment to write a review praising these guys. honest, reliable, reasonable. this was my 2nd time working with them and they were just ideal!
thank you so much! no wonder ...more you've been around so long! i'm HAPPY to spread the word and tell friends and clients how super you are! "
