"Vendor was very responsive. Scheduled appointment within 2 days for New Year's Eve. Arrived on time. Before he even entered the house he identified a problem" with our chimney cap. Upon inspection he said it looked like our chimney had not been cleaned in 5 years. We had had regular annual cleanings by other (obviously less qualified) contractors so this was a surprise. Cleaned the chimney within 30 minutes. We used the fireplace that night with no problems.

"Third year in a row I have used them. Come promptly, very friendly and polite and quick. I trust that they leave my fireplace safe for me to use. A family owned business.

I called and scheduled a fireplace inspection with the people who scheduled the appointment were nice and they were able to schedule me at the time of day I needed.
I explained that I had purchased my house last year and since I didn't know much about fireplaces I wanted someone to come out and check to make sure that there were no potential problems with the mortar in the chimney to ensure that I wouldnt have smoke leaking into the house or a potential fire with embers.
The man who showed up (the other two crew members stayed in the truck) came in laid down on the floor opened the flue and looked up the chimney with a flashlight and stated it looked good. (which I had already done). He did show me repeatedly how to open the flue with my finger (the handle is missing/broken). I had already figured that out when I looked up there previously.
He then told me I needed a new flue (over $600.00) and caps ($225.00) when I tried to explain my concerns he just kept repeating the directions to open/close the flue with my fingers.
The man spoke broken english and it may have been a communication issue on his part.
On my receipt it shows fireplace inspection and the estimates for the two jobs but in the area where it states condition with lines to make comments he left that

I spent 59.00 and they were here and gone in about 10 minutes and I have zero level confidence on the condition of my fireplace chimney since they did nothing more than what I had already done. I feel i wasted my money that's why i gave the cost a rating of "bad"

Quickly returned my phone request. After hearing the problem of fireplace, he gave recommendations in detail and explained why. Since his alternative approach can be done by home owner, no work is scheduled. I appreciate his professional information and suggestion. He did NOT charge for his advice.

Very well.
Pittsburgh Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
came for a preliminary visit to take measurements, discuss the work and give an estimate. He examined the site inside and out and gave me a reasoned overview of the situation, including an opinion that this work would not solve the problem. I wanted it done anyway and he did not try to browbeat me into accepting his viewpoint, content to have given me the benefit of his expertise and knowing that the work had some intrinsic value of its own.
We had a communication glitch after the estimate visit but managed to get back in touch and

returned with the well-crafted cap and installed it speedily and efficiently. The roof is "flat" so I have been able to inspect the worksite. I was worried about cement chips on the rubber roofing but the worksite was impeccable--not even dust to be seen.
I will use

We just bought a house with a chimney that has been well used and neglected for three or four years.
Pittsburgh Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
responded promptly via e-mail and scheduled via phone for service within the same week. They arrived just a few minutes after 8:30am for an appointment scheduled for between 8 and 8:30. Two very professional gentlemen moved their equipment in, cleaned the chimney, and patched up a crack I was concerned about, and left within about 30 minutes. They protected the floor and left the room as well as the chimney cleaner than when they arrived. I was impressed by their efficiency and how well they worked together as a team. They advised me to put our grate up on bricks as it is apparently too low and gave some additional tips, which were appreciated as I have never had a fireplace before. Overall an excellent and comfortable experience.

I called & left a message - they quickly responded & came to my house the next day to provide an estimate for the work I needed. Kemal arrived on time & gave me the price; which I thought was very reasonable for the work he needed to do. My chimney is located in the middle of my (clay tile) roof which contains about a 60 degree slope; a very tough chimney to get to for installing caps. I gave the okay & he said he could start the work right away - can't beat that!
Kemal cleaned my chimney, installed 2 caps, & didn't leave a speck of dust/debris behind. I was very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness that he brought to my home that day.
This company is family owned & it is very easy to see how much pride they have in the work they perform. I would highly recommend hiring

responded promptly (within 2 hours) of message left (after hours) to come and evaluate two chimneys in our newly purchased home in Fox Chapel. According to prior homeowner neither fp had been used in 14 years - and reportedly both had been "sealed shut".
Pittsburgh Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
scheduled an appointment with us 2 days after our call/request. He arrived on time, evaluated each of the fireplaces and offered his assessment of each. We then asked for his opinion on re-connecting the fireplace that once had a gas line for use with as gas/wood burning fp vs installing gas logs vs. installing fireplace insert. After much discussion, we made a trip to see the gas logs that he suggested.
Pittsburgh Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was kind enough to speak with the salesperson at the fireplace show room to provide his assessment of the situation and explain what he recommended based on what we wanted. We opted to go with the gas log set.
Pittsburgh Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
then called the following Monday (4 days later) and completed the work that Thursday (one week start to finish).
He and an assistant unsealed each of the rusted, closed chimneys, cleaned both, installed new damper in each of the chimneys, repaired mortar in each of fireplaces, and painted the gas log fireplace with black paint - vastly improving the looks and making each operational again. He reconnected the gas line that had been dismantled (in the garage/basement), installed the gas log set that we discussed, demonstrated it's use, demonstrated how to use each damper, reviewed safety issues (a few times) including showing me three different places to turn off gas line, and brought Carbon Monoxide

in throughout to ensure that no CO2 was escaping. He then urged us to get a CO detector for safety precaution. The other fireplace was cleaned, repaired and readied for wood burning. He then showed me the dampers open vs closed from the outside view - and checked/showed me that the chimney was properly drafting.
The sealed fireplaces were much more difficult to unseal that he had expected - causing him a few additional hours of work. He also agreed to take off an old glass door from one of the fireplaces - despite each of these things requiring more time, the proposed amount did not change. He stood by his proposal which was greatly appreciated.
Excellent work. He and his assistant were knowledgeable, professional, timely and took great care to use covers for the floor, removing their shoes and using 409 to clean any remaining prints. They were very respectful of our home. I can't say enough about the care and service that

provided. I recommend him highly and without reservation.
