"Corrected an electrical problem I was having with one and a pilot problem with the other. Took his time, was here well over two hours. Very, very good service!

"More than likely they will never show up for your appointment. If they do, beware, getting the job completed will be very challenging if not impossible. We have" used dating back about 8 years and at 4 different properties for numerous exterior home repairs large and small. Originally, we used this them based on a referral from trusted family friend. The prices were always good and seems very knowledgeable and experienced. Unfortunately, we have run into a number of issues over the past couple of years and we will no longer be using their services and can only recommend that others stay away as well. In late 2013 we called for chimney evaluation, repair, and pointing of the chimney and other areas. informed us he could do the roof work that we needed as well. We had a number of issues with the job not getting done in the time frame that we were told but we were used to this and the price made it worth the hassle. We paid in full upon completion of the work. After this job it became very difficult to get a hold of for other jobs we needed done. He would miss appointments for bids on numerous occasions and when he did bid a job he would not show to start the work as promised. The excuses were too numerous to list (often times he "forgot") but there were multiple jobs that promised to do and never showed up. We would push the start date again and again until it was clear he was never going to show up so we would find someone else to do the work. About 1 year after the roof was complete we started getting water leaks into the house in two areas. One area was at a plumbing vent stack. I informed and he agreed to go look at the problem area. In typical fashion it took weeks and weeks to get him out there after many promised appointments and many no shows. Eventually, we called a reputable big name roofing/chimney service to check the leak and do an entire property evaluation. What they discovered (and have the photographs to proof it) is that never completed much of the work we had paid them for and we were told was completed. None of the 4 vent boots were replaced. None of the chimney flashing was replaced. Much of the point work was left in complete with actual large holes left in the chimney mortar. None of this is visible from the ground due to the height and position of the house and chimneys. With photo evidence in hand we convinced to finish the job that we had paid him for a year prior. Once again there were excuses and broken appointments. There were no less than 15 appointments that set to do the repairs yet did not show up. Eventually, he claimed the repairs were done but this time we knew better than to trust him. With additional photographs taken of work that had still not been done he admitted that he lied about doing the work and offered to finish the work. I'm not able to expend this amount of effort chasing and double checking contractors. I will gladly play more in the future for honesty and integrity.

Fireplaces

Most people enjoy sitting in front of a fire on a cold day, but traditional, wood-burning fireplaces come with a few disadvantages. They tend to waste energy, require maintenance and pose some risk. Read this guide to discover several alternatives that provide the same ambience, but with fewer downsides.

Consider the pros and cons of installing an electric fireplace in your home.

An electric fireplace can give you that warm glow without a chimney or fireplace maintenance.

Are you ready to heat things up in your home by installing a fireplace?

The fireplace is often the centerpiece of the living and family rooms, but highly rated companies on Angie's List say a standard wood-burning fireplace loses most heat through the chimney.

He hasn't legally abandoned the job as long as he is still showing up and doing something, even if it is very little, from time to time.  You'll have to fire him first.  Have documentation that the job is not being done in a timely manner, showing when he has and has not worked.  Be ready for a fight and probably a legal battle since he will likely still want more money or won't refund money paid for incomplete work.

 

Change the locks and inform the contractor their services on your property are terminated.  Tell him if anyone representing his company enters your property they will be considered trespassing and will be prosecuted.  Then hire another company to check the work he has done to make sure it is right.  Somehow I doubt it is given the nature of his work ethic.  Then have the new contractor repair any bad workmanship and finish the job.  Keep records as any documented things that have to be redone will help your case against the first contractor.

I would recommend finding a good hearth retailer in your area and work with them to select a stove that is right for your home. They should also be able to arrange for certified installer to handle the installation. Keep in mind many areas require a city or county permit for the installation, and it may be wise to have the chimney and fireplace inspected by a certified chimney sweep beforehand.

responded right away to our inquiry, and came to the house within a few days to give us a bid. He was very patient and flexible (schedule-wise) as we waited for our fireplace to arrive. We were so pleased with our experience that we asked him to return to help us with some electrical issues that we had identified (or needed ...More help identifying!). is the consummate professional, friendly, and honest. I would use him again in a heartbeat!

My gas fireplace would not turn on before he came and he was able to get it to come back on after working on it for about 20 minutes. He explained that the ground wire was not connected correctly, which was why my fireplace would no longer come on. The fireplace worked well for about 1 week and then I had problems again with it only coming on after ...More turning it on and off several times. When he came to fix the fireplace, I explained that the same thing happened right before it stopped coming on at all.
I didn't have a problem paying $135 for the service until I realized that the work didn't fix the problem and the repairman was refusing to call me back.
I have left multiple messages letting him know that the repair did not seem to fix the problem and I can't get him to return my call. I am terribly disappointed and really shocked at the lack of professionalism.

My furnace went out on 11/24/14 and parts had to be ordered. House was without heat. Too late to call any one else. Tried to turn on gas fireplace logs and discovered that our gas fireplaces were also not working. 11/25/14, called answering service at 7:30a. Completely booked that day. But assured me ...More he would get out that day. called at 4:30p & 7p to advise he would be there by 10p, last stop of the day. Arrived at 9:55p. Repaired both vent free fireplaces and I had immediate heat. Very lucky to have found such a dedicated professional. Will definitely use again and for pre-season fireplace cleanings etc. THANK YOU !

Work went great. inspected the chimney and said it didn't need to be cleaned(!) and therefore didn't clean it. We needed to have the damper repaired, and repaired it and then demonstrated the proper technique for opening and closing the damper to prevent future issues. He installed a chimney ...More cap, which we've needed for a while.
He was very professional and courteous throughout. Although his price is a bit higher than others, it's worth it for the honesty and professionalism.

The guys arrived on time to do the inspection and were very nice. During the inspection they found a major problem and told me that it would take them some time to come up with a plan for fixing it. They told me they'd get back to me in a "couple" days.
When I hadn't heard from them in a week, I called to check in. They gave ...More me a verbal quote for a small job ($400) and also a much larger one ($4200). They seemed to assume (I don't know why) that I wouldn't want the large job done. It was almost as though they were willing to do the quick and easy part of the work, but wanted no part of the more difficult job but didn't want to admit it. I asked them to write me up a plan and quote for the big job. They told me to not expect them to be able to do either of the jobs any time soon. I was fine with that because I wanted to get some more quotes.
I had actually given up on them when I hadn't heard from them about either scheduling the small job or seen a quote on the large job in over a month. But I accidentally called them, meaning to call another company that I was working with on another quote. But as long as I had them on the phone I thought I'd try to figure out what had happened?
First off the woman I spoke to told me, "I have a note in your file that you told me that you DIDN'T want a written quote on the big job." I told her I had never spoken to her about it, that I had talked directly to the inspector and told him I DID want a quote. She said, "You had to have talked to me. Otherwise, I wouldn't have this note in your file."
Well, I didn't talk to her. I swear.
Then she said, "We have you scheduled for the small job on November 18th." This was four days away, but no one had ever contacted me about being on the schedule. I wasn't available on that date, so I asked her, "How did I get on your schedule? No one called or spoke to me about that date?"
She said, "Well, you obviously did talk to me because you're on the schedule and I have a note in my handwriting." I attempted to remind her that I had never spoken to her about either of this issues, but she continued to insist that she and I had spoken about both the written quote and the schedule for the small job.
Honestly, this was some pretty infuriating customer service. My wife had spoken to no one in the company, and I know for sure that I had never spoken to this woman about either schedule or quote. There were no messages on my voicemail from the company. Frankly, I didn't appreciate being treated like I was a forgetful idiot in this exchange. I didn't appreciate the fact that if I hadn't called by accident, their guys would have shown up at my place to do work when I wasn't expecting them. And, finally, her dogged unwillingness to accept responsibility for something that she was clearly, clearly wrong about gave me a general sense that these were not the sort of people I wanted to work with.
I asked her to take me off of her schedule. I'll just have the work done by one of the other companies I'm working with--they all seem to have their acts more together.

From start - which included a referral for a architect who designed the space and landscaping - to finish, was all about the details and making sure we were happy, satisfied customers. He was responsive and in regular communication to ensure the project stayed on schedule and was coming together as planned. The project manager ...More and workers assigned to our project were always on time, professional, personable and tidied up the worksite at the end of each day. When it was time to select stone, pavers and paint, they made helpful recommendations. The completed project included landscaping that transformed the backyard. At one point, a sink was installed where a cooler should had been. After bringing this to 's attention, he noted the error and made the correction without hesitation. Now, THAT's customer service!!
