"I was worried about the scope and expense of this project, and it couldn't have gone better! Professional job from start to finish! Everyone I encountered with" was top-notch and professional, including the office staff! The masonry crew was excellent! They were skilled, hard-working and cleaned up after themselves. Most importantly, they did an outstanding job! I was worried about matching the "calico" brick on the exterior of my old chimney and the final result looks terrific! The interior work on the damper and utility flue also went smoothly. Only hiccup was the unforeseen need to special order a larger-than-normal multi-flue cap. It delayed the job's completion by about a week, but it was installed as soon as it came in, by the owner! The amount I paid was the same amount as the bid I received a month or two earlier. This was a significant and expensive project, and I did a lot of research on Angie's List and elsewhere before I chose . I felt comfortable with them and I know I selected the right company for the job! I highly recommend !

"I hired Chimney to tear down the top part of my chimney (~10 feet of brick) and replace it with all new brick to match the lower section" of the chimney. came up with several options on how to rebuild as well as offered up ideas on the fireplace as well which I appreciated as I was not very familiar with the different options of how to rebuild. He was able to work with me on scheduling a time that was best for me and my neighbors as we have a shared drive and had the work done in exactly the amount of time he thought it would take. I got estimates from all of the major chimney companies in the area and Chimney was the most reasonable and recommended using better materials (i.e. stainless liner vs. aluminum that all the other companies suggested). After meeting with at the house and going over the different options that I had I realized how knowledgeable he was and it was clear that he was very detail-oriented and took the proper care with his work which was important for me as my home is a 1920's bungalow and I wanted to keep it as period-correct as possible. Overall and his crew did a great job at keeping the work area clean and making the process painless for me. I would recommend Chimney to anyone after the experience that I had with them.

How to Avoid Chimney Repair Scams

Scams lure homeowners via solicitations, door-to-door sales pitches and ads offering too-good-to-be-true prices.

Chimney repair and maitenance

Chimney Repair

If you have a wood-burning fireplace, be sure to have it cleaned and inspected regularly to reduce the risk of fire. But be careful who you hire because chimney-repair scams are common.

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

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

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.

Follow these tips to ensure a safe experience with an electric fireplace.

Angie's Answers


The cost will be determined by the type and length and the connection made to the gas furnace. Type of liner is based on the acidic moisture output and the appliance afue rating. Highly efficient appliances will need a stainless alloy liner like AL29-4c which can cost retail $65/ft plus components for connection (another $150) plus labor $70/hr and taxes for 6 inch round. ($58/ft for 5" rd)

Less efficient systems (below 83% afue rating) can utilize aluminum vent pipe that comes as a kit for about $325, plus labor $70/hr. Basic installations can take 3-4 hours.

B-vent connections are commonly used with gas venting infront of connection to the vent or liner.

Most masonry chimneys cannot take the excessive moisture produced from todays high efficient gas systems and are often vented with pvc, by-passing the masonry chimney and exiting outside the foundation. If that is not possible then inserting either a AL49-c stainless or aluminum liner down the terra-cotta flue of the chimney designated for the furnace in order to make a connection at the appliance in the basement or crawl space.

Every system has its own challenges and set backs so average costs can change with install complexity and length of vent.

Most all professional chimney sweeps now utilize the National Fire Protection  211 Standard for chimneys, fireplaces , Vents and solid fuel-burning appliances for chimney inspections, which determines when and whether he has to access the roof.

There are 3 levels of inspection  The most commonly performed are Level 1 and level 2  are listed:

Level 1            Done as Annual Inspection

                      Routine cleaning of the flue

                      Direct replacement of a similar appliance

Level 1 inspection is recommended for a chimney under continued service under the same conditions with the continued use of the same appliance.

IN A Level 1 inspection, your chimney service tech should examine the *READILY ACCESSIBLE portions of the appliance and the chimney connection. HE will be looking for basic Soundness of the chimney structure and flue as well as the basic appliance installations and connections. HE will also Verify that  the chimney is free of obstruction and combustible deposits.

* Readily accessible Means that no special equipment is required to gain such access, ie.Ladder


LEVEL 2            Upon sale or transfer of a property

                       After an operating malfunction or an external event is likely to have caused damage to the chimney

                        Addition or removal of one or more connected appliances, or the replacement of an appliance withone of a different type, a different input rting or a different efficiency.

                        Prior to relining or replacement of the flue lining


Level 2 insp. are required when any changes are made to the system. Changes can include a change of Fuel Type, changes in shape or material in the flue,Replacement or addition of an appliance of a disimilar type, input rating or efficiency. Building fires, chimney fire or other seismic events as well as weather events or obvious construction defects would be indicators that a level 2 is warranted.


Level 2 includes everything in a level 1 PLUS the *Accessible portions of the chimney exterior and interior including attic, crawl spaces and basements. it addresses proper clearances from combustible in accessible locations.There are no speciality tools required to open or access doors, panels, or coverings during a level 2 insp.  The level 2  insp should also include the visual inspection by video scanning equipment or by other means in order to examine the internaql surfaces and joints of all the flue liners inside the chimney structure. No removal or demolition or any permrnantely attached portions of the chimney or building structure or finish shall be required in a level 2 insp.

*ACCESSIBLE means if you can get to it with special equipment do it but you dont have to take apart anything for said access. Use of ladders and cameras just no demolition.




***THE REAL ANSWER to this question lies with the accessibility of the top of the chimney and roof type.  Most professional sweeps want to examine up close the top of the chimney for cracked masonry crowns , which is very common, Flashing issues, top view down flue, and for prefab chimneys to insp the condition of the Chase cover and cap.

Note that the use of a special tool (ladder) to gain access to the chimney is under a level 2 inspection, which can be additional costs since it is a much more thorough inspection.

It is possible to sweep and do a level 1 insp. without accessing the roof. 


Also most professional sweeps have equipment that allows us to sweep the chimney with a rotary system that is operated from inside at the fireplace opening and achieve a much better cleaning than pushing brushes down from the top and without getting on the roof. We also video scan the flue from the hearth so the homeowner can be a part of that inspection or "chimney-oscopy". They see the live action of the top of the chimney and conditions that exist inside their system so when they get their report they know they are not some stock pics that could be used to sell repairs but the actual pics of the conditions they viewed in their system. And we do not have to access the roof.

If the chimney access requires multiple ladders or is a "brush with death", there could be extra cost, and the sweep would make an onsite decision regarding the ability to safely reach the top of the chimney or have to use a lesser option of binoculars or rely on experience to determine whats going on up top based on visible symptoms,  if access is too dangerous or not possible.


So don't discount a sweeps knowledge or ability on whether he gets on the roof or not. Check him out on referral sites , company web site, credentials, training and experience. Get referals and check on liability insurance and you should be able to find a sweep that can meet your need. If you are in North Carolina check us out at ClassicChimney.com.

The recipe sounds right but not the price, but thats why you should get at least three estimates

Chimney Repair reviews in Kansas City


This is the second time has provided service to us and it will not be the last. Their rep, was very knowledgeable, helpful and professional. He went out of his way to provide exceptional service, solving problems beyond the typical maintenance he was initially there to address. He was also able to replace ...More our flue caps, knocked off during a storm which resulted in a considerable savings compared to a replacement. Our entire system is running better than ever before.
- William F.

They should have known better than to put a seal on it. The smoke started coming in the house. I had to use another company to fix it what their technician did wrong. I would only hire them again if it was a dire situation and I could get nobody else.

The inspection was thorough, the technician explained what he was seeing to me, and he left a summary of his findings. Unfortunately due to some personal or family issues, we had to wait almost a month for the official report. The report was very thorough and no doubt accurate, however, the bid to correct the deficiencies was over $7,000. Needless ...More to say, we decided against doing the work. I am sure the work they listed was needed, but we have many renovations in progress, and this work is not in the budget!

- Lisa M.

I scheduled the appointment in December. He called on the day of the appointment to let me know he was running a bit late, which we certainly appreciated. Everything went very well and we plan to use them again.
- Janet H.

I was pleased with all aspects of this experience. I do want to share this with you concerning my first experience using Angies List to find a chimney service. I am a widow and a senior , so when I needed these repairs I want help to find honest, dependable company. I chose Chimney Pros of City from ...More your list. Long story short they were neither, I was out $375.00, which I could not afford.
When I called you all you told me was he was no longer on your list. So I am very disappointed in YOU because I truly was trying to avoid what happened by joining your service.

I would recommend .

He fixed some of the minor issues and also cleaned it. We had to wait for the parts to come so it took multiple trips, but he was very timely once things were set in motion. He was very prompt with his work and we appreciate what he did for us.
- Jerry D.

It might have been my fault for not getting clear expectations, so I may use them again, not sure. My hope was that I could start using my fireplace for the first time this year (bought the house 5 years ago), but after he was done he told me that my chimney cap needs to be replaced to be safe (there is a tree growing out of it) -- to the tune of $800, ...More but I don't think he went up on the roof at all. They had cancelled his original appointment because of bad weather, but not sure why since he didn't even get up there (unless he did it when I wasn't looking, which doesn't seem possible since it is WAAAAY up there).
He also told me my chimney was already pretty clean (must have been done by the previous owner before I bought it).
Also, he could not tell me how to operate the gas starter -- there is a gas connection in the floor but no shut-off valve, so not sure how it ever worked. I would have thought he could go into the basement and investigate, but he said he didn't do that... That I would have to talk to a plumber. Again, I guess I should have asked the scope of the job.
I just feel like I wasted the $133, probably my own fault, though. I certainly don't have the $800 at the moment :-( so, I'm disappointed.
He was very professional and tidy, however.

- Linda D.

Technician arrived on time, but was a new hire. Work was done as expected, but when the inspection was complete, there were delays because the technician had to contact his supervisor by phone to discuss the evidence found in the inspection. Once this was done, there was a recommendation made to have work done on the chimney to bring it into working ...More order. However, there was no quote done at the time. I had to make a call a few months later to schedule another inspection from someone who would be able to make the quote. Overall, not a big deal, just a minor hassle. I was happy with the work performed and I would work with them again.
