"Initial contact went great. They came out and quoted the job and their quote was very reasonable for the work that needed done. We put a down payment and was told someone would contact" us with an installation date. We ended up calling them three weeks later and work was scheduled to begin three weeks from the day they scheduled (the end of October). On installation day, the installers came in and within 5 minutes told us that a gas fireplace could not be installed due to the location of the fireplace and the location of the gas line into the house. It was arranged that another sales person would stop by that afternoon, which they did. He promised to get us a quote for an electric fireplace the next day. I never received a quote. I called/emailed them six times between November and January and only heard back once. I even stopped by the store in
to talk with someone but I never received a quote for an electric unit. During the last two attempts to contact them in January, I asked for our down payment to be refunded but it never was. I ended up writing a letter to the owner requesting our down payment, which they responded promptly and I received the refund within a week. The original salesman came out as well to investigate why the installers wouldn't install the unit and assured me it could be done. Because their price was so affordable, I offered to still consider them if they would requote the work. They gave me the original quote without any kind of break on the cost. Had they knocked off even $100 off the bid as an apology for giving us the runaround on the whole ordeal, they may have had our business.

"He was professional, offered opinions on work that could be done without pushing too hard to upsell, charged a reasonable price, and completed the work in the original timeframe. No complaints.

"I ordered a gas insert in January and they said they would contact me regarding an install date. No one contacted me to set up a date and, in the end, I had to contact them. That" being said, the install was great, the guys that came for the install took the time to make sure that it was installed perfectly, even making a few suggestions to improve the appearance. Unfortunately, we had the wrong size face plate for the size of my fireplace, not a big deal, they arranged to order a larger size and would call when the piece came in. Again, no one called and I initiated the follow-up. That being said, overall - a very positive experience with everything except for scheduling which, all things considered, is pretty minor. I love my insert and have been using it a lot due to the chilly Spring. I would definitely recommend them to others.

Chimney Sweeping reviews in Madison


Chimney sweep:
He did an excellent job containing the debris to the fireplace. The rest of my family room remained spotless. He was timely and very pleasant to work with.
Chimney Inspection:
I definitely trusted
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
, he was honest with his pricing estimates and was familiar with current regulations. In his estimate he called out areas of uncertainty. For example, he could not tell if the entire clay tile liner would need to be replaced until he demolished the chimney to the roof. He noted two estimates - one if the entire liner would be replaced with an insulated hybrid liner and one without this liner.
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
did a great job of explaining the details of what he would need to do except sometime it was difficult to understand what he was saying.
The biggest obstacle we ran into was that I wanted to have a real, wood-burning fire, which I told
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
during the inspection. It wasn't until after the repairs were made that he brought up a concern he had with the clearance between the masonry in my basement and the wood floor supports. He suggested that it would be safer for me to have a gas-burning fireplace. I told him I was not interested in a gas-fireplace and wish that he would have vocalized his concern during the inspection.
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was very receptive to this feedback and made every effort to accommodate my dream of having a wood-burning fire. He threw in a thermal shield and offered to add additional layers of insulated paint on the base of the firebox.
Chimney Repair:
By far the best part of working with
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was his willingness to accommodate my schedule. He worked weekends and even was willing to meet me for an appointment early weekday mornings before I went into work.
As soon as we schedule the repair,
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
obtained a permit and posted it on my front door. He then built structurally sound scaffolding around my front porch, in a way that did not inconvenience me in the slightest. The condition of my chimney turned out to be even worse than
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
had anticipated and he worked long hours to finish in the time frame that he had quoted me AND he stuck to the initial estimate although I have to imagine that this estimate was generous.
Summary of Strengths of
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
-Pricing was transparent - when he mentioned a thermal shield, or a insulated, hybrid liner, he was able to show me my options in a catalog, complete with pricing information
-Personal touch - Everything from

's willingness to work at all hours, 7 day a week to the honest conversations we had made the experience a pleasant one
-Good, quality work
- Jess S.

They used new tarps to protect my white carpet and were fast and efficient. They identified cracks in my chimney cap that need repair and gave me an estimate to do so. They were pleasant and quick. I would use them again in the future.

is terrific - they were in good contact, prompt, incredibly friendly, and skillful. On his way out,

also offered to give the neighbors on our street a special deal to care for their chimneys. We have found our chimney sweep!
- Eileen H.

We were amazed by
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
's expertise, generosity, and honesty. He gave us a wealth of information about our fireplace and chimney. When he saw that our chimney did not need cleaning, he could have carried on anyway. Instead, he told us what he saw and gave us a credit which we will use for his business in the future. We had already intended to add a heating fireplace insert. We will surely be calling on
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
for this work, and we look forward to working with him again.
On top of all that, he is a super nice guy, polite and friendly, and so is his assistant.

was professional and prompt. He explained the process and was very neat and clean in the job process. I would definitely use his service again. One minor irritation, Angies List sent out a notice of a deal the day before the service was scheduled at a price of $99.00 for the same service I had been billed $159.00.
- Richard K.

he was very professional and courteous. he did a very good job of cleaning the chimney and cleaning up after himself. he informed me of some potential problems with the chimney and gave me some repair options, but he was not at all pushy. i found him helpful and professional and we would recommend using him to our friends. we will also use him again in the future.

My neighbor,
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
, had

Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
check her chimney and recommended the company to me.
(I love friend/neighbor referrals!)
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
arrived promptly at our mutually agreed upon time and I was immediately struck by his countenance. It's refreshing to deal with a polite, almost kindly, service person. After discussing my (gas) fireplace and my (gas) furnace he very nicely informed me that I did not need to have my chimney cleaned as it has a liner and cleaning is not necessary.
Thank you,
Madison Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
, for not making feel like an absolute dunce. Thank you also for your honesty. And, I might add, he would not take a dime for his time/knowledge. Kudos all the way around.
