"I have non-venting gas logs so I didn't actually need to have anything done. Nonetheless, they showed me how to use the logs, explained how everything works, and gave safety instructions. Definitely made me feel more comfortable using the fireplace because I had never dealt with this kind of gas logs before.

" 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 Sweeps 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 Sweeps Provider Name Locked
, since I presently live in North
Richmond Chimney Sweeps 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 Sweeps 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 Sweeps 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

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 Sweeps 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 Sweeps 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 Sweeps 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 Sweeps 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!

fit me into his schedule although he was very busy. He and his helper were very prompt. Didn't leave a speck of dirt! He is very friendly. I felt completely comfortable with him in my home. If anything, he doesn't charge enough (he was much cheaper than 9 others I called). He's done this for 30 years, I believe. Highly recommended.

"I needed to know whether the leak that I was experiencing in my home was coming from the chimney or my roof.
Richmond Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was able to determine from his inspection that the chimney was not causing the leak and went on to explain what he saw on the roof that could possibly be causing the leak. He seemed to be very knowledgeable and he was very professional and helpful. He was pleasant to speak with. I needed to speak with him after the inspection and left a voice mail message and he returned the call within a reasonable amount of time within that day.

"This service was several years ago, but I do not have any reason to have a negative opinion about the service provider. I received exactly what I asked for.

"The chimney sweep was well done, and did not leave a mess in the living room. The two inspectors provided a detailed assessment of the condition of the chimney with pictures they had taken during the inspection.

"The visit from
Richmond Chimney Sweeps 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.

"I am happy with my service. We heard a something in our chimney and were concerned that it was a squirrel or a bird. They came out and did a full cleaning and it was a bird.... pretty big I might add! They were very professional and polite. The tech seemed very well trained on his work and I would definitely use them again.
