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 Pittsburgh
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"
We had a communication glitch after the estimate visit but managed to get back in touch and
I will use
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
