"I ordered the deal on 23 August but was out of town until late September at which time i called and made an appointment for an estimate for 3 Oct - late morning or early afternoon - as i go the gym every morning. When I got home at @ 1030 am there was a message on my answering machine from @ 9:30 am that

was here and no one was home. I called to reschedule and was told that
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
would come back by later in the day. He never showed up and no one ever called. On 28 Oct, I called to make another appointment and was told someone would call back on 29th. No one called. On the 31st I called and scheduled an appointment for 7 Nov at 1015. At 8:15
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
called and said he was on his way.
My first request was the repair of a concrete "cap" of aproximately 2' for a brick wall in my yard and if any money was left (silly me!) replace a few disintegrating bricks in the wall. The estimate was $900 to repair the cap and an additional $1350 for the brick replacement.. That was a bit more than I wanted to pay at the time so I requested an estimate for a small step from the
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
to my yard - I had 2 steps there already but the first one entering the yard was 12" high and difficult to maneuver. The step would be 4" high by 12" deep and 36" wide. He said he would get with their paver on Tuesday (the 12th) and send an e-mail with the estimate.
On the 12th, I received the estimate: $425 - minus the $200 for the voucher - I would owe $225.
I got two other estimates which each were $175 - so I had one of them do the work.

"I purchased a property and the inspection uncovered some serious problems with the flues and fireplaces. After discussing the problems and solutions with two separate chimney services, I decided to keep looking since I wasn't comfortable with the solutions offered or the prices quoted. I got a recommendation on Cougots and called them. The inspector arrived promptly for the appointment and wasted no time in evaluating the situation and gave a reasonable price for the work; but more importantly gave remedies to problems the others said were not fixable without major chimney reconstruction. After engaging them to do the work, the technicians arrived on the date and time as agreed to, they were friendly and efficient. I was impressed with Cougats from start to finish and would recommend them without hesitation.

" I live in an older home that sports a fireplace worthy of Cracker Barrel. It has double flues with a 6 ' wide firebox. Therefore, knowledge of fireplaces is a must. They

to the challenge! The technician's name was
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, and he was excellent. The crew cleaned my chimney,photographed the interior, and provided a thorough write-up of the work. I was aware that repairs would be necessary, and their assessment was thorough and spot on. The price quoted for repairs was reasonable. I'll write another review after repairs are completed.

"I contacted them to inspect and clean two chimneys of the house I had just purchased in
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, since I presently live in North
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, all contact was conducted by email.
During the house inspection I mentioned that I had hired them to do so, and the inspector stated that they were the best in the area,and the Realtor agreed, both stating that they were the ones they used for their own homes. I was greatly relieved that they confirmed the impression I had formed from the responsiveness of the email correspondence with
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
(the owner).
The workers were delayed a few minutes from the appointed time for the inspection, but called and let me know why and that they would be there soon (all of 10 minutes delay).
When they arrived they went straight to work, and did so in a comfortable manner that appeared relaxed, yet focused on getting it done. I say this for I am an older woman, who was alone in the home and not very comfortable about having workers traipsing through the house. They took care to cover the area surrounding the fireplace, as they inspected it from the room, so there was no
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
that they had been there once they were finished.
They then inspected the outside view of the chimneys from the roof and upon completion came back to the door to review the results with me. While I was only provided with an overview, for I was told that a detailed email would be sent to me about their recommendations, plus any and EVERY question I asked was given a thoughtful and detailed answer. I will admit that I had a rather defeatist attitude about the cost, being overwhelmed with the cost of moving in general. This did not
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
the workers gentle manner. I was quickly reassured that I would only be charged for the service of inspection for that day and within the email would be an ‘
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
’ menu that I could choose from to decide what services I wanted to do at this time. They left me
smiling.
Then the bill and detailed report arrived! UG!! The email that accompanied it, more a personal note from
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
than a bill, noted
that he had included the Angie’s list discount for the inspection, but not the other listed items, BUT it would be applied to those I chose to do. The actual bill was only for the inspection, since the worker had told me that the rain had kept the chimneys clean, since there was no cap on them (told with a smile). STILL the list was (abet, to me) extensive of what work needed to be done.
I wrote back to
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
and asked him if the list was in priority order in order to use either fireplace. Within in a few minutes I received a reply that detailed those items that would allow the fireplaces to be used in a safe manner, and those that I should consider in the future (if I could not afford them now). WOW!! His list did not include some things that I had the impression were important, and explained why that was so. Not only did he ‘miss’ a
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
to cause me to find a way to afford them RIGHT NOW, but he reassured me that I might be able to use the fireplaces where I was giving them up as a lost cause!

"The visit from
Richmond Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was great. He showed up on time and was very clear when speaking to me about our chimney.
We had wanted him to come inspect our chimney before using it for the first time (we recently bought the house). He looked at the outside of the chimney (did not go up on the roof, but looked from the ground) and looked up into the chimney from inside our house.
He explained future work that we should consider doing very clearly and even showed me an example of what he was talking about by pointing at my neighbors house.
He walked me through how to open and close the flu and let me know that some customers have trouble with this type, but reassured me that if I needed help, just to give them a call.
At the end of his visit he wrote a detailed report of the visit and his recommendation for future work.
The only negative...For the work that was done, I feel like $80 was a little high considering all he really did was look at our roof and look up the chimney, but having the peace of mind is worth it to us.

"Great.

was prompt and did the work as specified. He also pointed out something that requires a structural inspection that I would not have noticed or known... and is not something that brings more work to his company. It was simply pointed out for my information.

"I first called them on 1-18-12 to set up an appt. I had to call back again on 2-29-12 to ask why he hadn't called me back. Also, I didn't expect to have to give him a check for $50.00 (payable to HIM, not

"Job overall went very smoothly. The only issue was mother nature; it snowed on the day they were supposed to initially begin the work. Installer was very courteous, professional, and answered my questions honestly. Told it would take 2 days to complete work and it did take that amount of time. The first day, the installer completed the chimney where the leak was originating from and the second day, the work was completed on the second chimney. The installer also asked to come inside the house to clean the debris out of the pipe that fell down the chimney during the installation. I am pleased with the work and I do not expect to have any leaks the next time there is a hard, down pouring rain.

In addition, I was pleased they accept visa and mastercard with no additional fees like some other companies will charge the consumer.

Thanks.
