The team did a great job of diagnosing the issues and putting together a competitive proposal (was the most thorough, knowledgeable, and fairly priced proposal of the 7 I received). The work was also very high quality - no major signs of their work (they cleaned everything up) except the fact that the masonry was now all caulked, sealed and flashed correctly, unlike the work of our original builder!
Only complaint I have to mention was scheduling. These guys wanted to leave things very open ended and just text me a couple days before they would like to come. At one point I thought I got them to agree to a date a few weeks in advance, but they ended up texting me just a day or two before they needed to come out. They needed to make two trips so I went through this twice several weeks apart with only last minute notice - not ideal for a couple with demanding jobs! I get that
has a hard time predicting their exact availability long in advance, but was a little bit frustrating. That said, I'm very happy with their work and would hire them again if I have any ongoing issues with my home.

The washer and dryer are located on the third floor. The dryer vent terminates on the roof two floors higher, therefore cleaning the dryer vent must be done professionally. It is cleaned every year and
has done this job previously. I used a Big Deal they offered recently, though it was $30 more than I paid last year.
Cleaning was scheduled for 12p-4p, but then I got a call in the morning asking if the technicians could come earlier.
and his assistant
showed up at 11:30 as I requested. They were professional and neat, and without my asking, they put on shoe covers to protect my floors. I really appreciated that.
turned on the dryer which pushes the lint up the vent during the cleaning. On the roof deck, he located the vent pipe for the dryer and removed the cover. I looked inside the vent pipe and lint lined the inside of the pipe as expected, but it didn't look too bad since it is cleaned regularly.
The vent was swept and the lint was cleaned out. The inside of the dryer was not cleaned which is not part of the service, but I would gladly pay more to have that done. They were very efficient and the job was finished in about 30 minutes. Photos were taken which will be emailed to me later. It's a visual record of what the vent looked like before and after cleaning. A small oversight was that I found large chunks of lint on the roof next to the vent pipe. It should have been picked up and disposed. Otherwise, the job was well done and I am happy to use
again next year.

fantastic!! I was really impressed with all the work this crew did in a single day in removing old roofing, repairing and installing new roof with additional vents and even adding 2 skylight windows. By the time they left, they had also completely cleaned up the tons of debris. (The day before, they had even approached my neighbor to let him know about the work and smooth relations, which I appreciated.)
They took pictures of the roof before & after as well so I would know what was going on.
There was a small problem with the new sky-windows (which actually entailed a lot of extra work, including dry-wall, plastering and primer paint), but they came right out and fixed the problem.
I would highly recommend this firm.

I am so happy with the service that

provided!!
When Rich and
Chicago Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
came out to quote the job, they arrived on time and were very patient with all of my questions. They were very respectful of my home, took off their shoes and cleaned up the mess that came out of my chimney when they opened the door to inspect it.
They had a type of camera which they sent up the chimney to see if there was any blockage. One of the other companies that had come out to quote the job used a little mirror and flashlight.
When they came out to do the job, again, they were on time, which is greatly appreciated. I also liked the fact that their window was 2 hours.
They did the work in the time frame I was given and within the quote that I was given.
They exceeded my expectations.
I am a very satisfied customer and would highly recommend

The representative came over the day I made my request. She had some possible solutions to the problem but said it would be difficult to be sure until the chimney was cleaned. She said she would send me a proposal. I never received a proposal so I found another company to do the work.

I requested a chimney cleaning and suggestions about how to eliminate the smoke that backed up in the second fireplace when using the primary fireplace. The technician did an excellent job of analyzing the problem and suggested possible solutions. I have had other companies look at the problem but none came up with solutions that seemed likely to succeed. While the weather is too warm to test the system, I am confident that we have an answer to the problem.

Well, they came full of paperwork to explain sweeping.
I have three chimneys all wood gas firebox.
One is brand new never been used
second used as wood burning ( used 6 months total)
first used as gas fireplace only. ( used 6 months total)
They actually talked to me into sweeping the 3 (which I only intend for one with wood burning)
The guy started to tell me that this is arequiement from my house insurance. and that in case of a problem, then house insurance will require a sweep certificate. I actually after paying them checked with my insurance and have a written note from them that this is not true that they never required yearly certificate of sweeping! SO I have a bad taste in my mouth.
I should have checked first but since they were here and i did not have time to reschedule, I went ahead with it.
They actually made an inspection for the one that has never been used. Another $120. But no camera or anything, just a bunch of useless pictures . Though I told them that we are not using this one at all and did not intent to!
Of course nothing was wrong!
They did detect a flue issue in my third fireplace but they failed to mention that they would not repair it. They resealed the top with new caulking. in order to repair this flue issue, another company has to cut the brand new caulking! ( the caulking for the 3 flues were about $500)
So again not happy! They should have known that repairing this flue issue meant access to the roof flue and then caulking should have wait!
I don't know why they get so many posititive reviews. I feel like the team who came really misled me!
the rest to the cost was to wash off efflorescence on the side of house with the chimneys. I guess only next winter I will be able to tell if the product they applied is any good. this was $500

They came on time. Bill was extremely nice. They sweeped the chimney. He took photos and said I needed all kinds of work done. I said I would have to think about it. I emailed and asked for the photos but they never sent them. I want a second opinion before I spend all that money. Be prepared for sales pitch.
