Dear Angie: How much can I expect to pay to have my wood fireplace converted to gas? Our house is about 30 years old. The bottom of the fireplace looks like it's easily accessed through the basement. The conversion would involve running 30 to 50 feet of gas line. — Thomas M., Cincinnati, Ohio

Chimney Sweeping reviews in Detroit
Further discussion ensued as to when to perform the remaining job - purchase and insertion of a new liner. The estimate provided was right on target, no changes were made after the work was begun.
This company has demonstrated the best work ethic and a level of professionalism that I have not seen in a very long time. I would happily recommend them to anyone who needs chimney cleaning/service or other related work done in/on their home.
Originally, the provider was called in order to have chimney swept and inspected; also, the chute's reservoir was to be cleaned. Provider suggested the installation of a chimney cap and a new fireplace chute cover. The prices that were quoted I understood to include the removal of the all the old fireplace hardware. All of the services discussed were performed. Provider was paid, then he left.
After that, I discovered that the old fireplace hardware was still in place. I contacted provider who stated that he would have had to "grind" out all of the old hardware and was still willing to do come back and do that. I elected to just leave things as they were.
The new chimney cap is closed by firmly pulling a beaded chain in the fireplace straight down and then snapping the chain into a notch located on the side of the fireplace. This is not as easy as the provider made it sound. Opening and closing the cap was done easily by the provider, a young man. I think anyone that has an issue with their arm, or back, will find it very difficult to open/close this cap. Senior citizens probably won't be able to open and close this cap. As it is, I leave the cap open for entire weekends because of the difficulty of using the chain to open/close it. The fireplace is mostly used on the weekend.
While I am not crazy about the chimney cap operation and I wish provider had communicated better what was going to happen (or not happen) with the fireplace hardware, I still strongly recommend
I highly recommend the gentlemen. Keep him working for as long as he's able to do it!
