" The original damper in our chimney had rusted out. The old damper was removed and a chimney-top damper was installed to replace it. There was absolutely" no "mess" despite removing the old damper in the family room on light colored carpeting. The age of the house had been checked with the original contact so that they would be sure to have dampers fitting the chimney size of that era would be on the truck. They also removed the chimney cap that had been installed some time ago and moved it over to the chimney to the furnace rather than throwing it away. An added bonus is that the new damper should make the family room warmer since the cold air will not be sinking down the chimney. The pull to the damper is
loaded and is within easy reach inside the firebox. Finally, I had a coupon through Angie's List that reduced the price! And the original price was within the estimated price range give by a home inspector.

Most people enjoy sitting in front of a fire on a cold day, but traditional, wood-burning fireplaces come with a few disadvantages. They tend to waste energy, require maintenance and pose some risk. Read this guide to discover several alternatives that provide the same ambiance, but with fewer downsides.

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

He hasn't legally abandoned the job as long as he is still showing up and doing something, even if it is very little, from time to time.  You'll have to fire him first.  Have documentation that the job is not being done in a timely manner, showing when he has and has not worked.  Be ready for a fight and probably a legal battle since he will likely still want more money or won't refund money paid for incomplete work.

 

Change the locks and inform the contractor their services on your property are terminated.  Tell him if anyone representing his company enters your property they will be considered trespassing and will be prosecuted.  Then hire another company to check the work he has done to make sure it is right.  Somehow I doubt it is given the nature of his work ethic.  Then have the new contractor repair any bad workmanship and finish the job.  Keep records as any documented things that have to be redone will help your case against the first contractor.

I would recommend finding a good hearth retailer in your area and work with them to select a stove that is right for your home. They should also be able to arrange for certified installer to handle the installation. Keep in mind many areas require a city or county permit for the installation, and it may be wise to have the chimney and fireplace inspected by a certified chimney sweep beforehand.

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

, 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.

After we wrote a less than favorable review on Angie's List, the next time we needed service, they informed us that they blacklist clients who write negative reviews and would not deal with us any longer. The gas fireplace was a problem for years. After not being able to have it serviced by

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 Fireplace Contractors 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.

Arrived on time, detail-oriented and kept the work-area clean. Didn't know how to fix the low voltage switch that turns the gas logs on....thought cleaning it would suffice; It didn't. Overall, he did an acceptable job and had everything been working properly with the fireplace I'd probably rate this provider a bit higher, but his inabililty to diagnose/fix our switch problem lowered the grade.

I called to get the chimney cleaning & inspection offer found on Angie's list for a rental property I have; they answered right away and came that day. They called me back to say that the chimney cap / Lental? was deteriorated and would be a $350 repair, but they would take off what was spent on the inspection. They offered to do the work right away while they were there. In retrospect, I definately should have gotten at least 1 or 2 other quotes for the work, because it did seem a bit over priced for the small repair that was done. They also forgot to tell the tenant that they shouldn't use the fireplace for 24 hours so that the repairs could dry. That caused issues. Other than that, I was happy just to get the work taken care of quickly, and without too many scheduling issues.

I contacted the company, they sent someone out to do the repair work, he was incredible, diligent, friendly, professional and did what he said he was going to do in an extremely timely manner. I was very impressed with this company overall.

They were hired to do a video inspection by the couple purchasing my condo. The results were that the

tiles were severely damaged, and the estimate to fix it was $7,000. I've only ever had a handful of fires, and I couldn't imagine they could have caused that amount of damage, so we got second opinions. Two other licensed and certified firms and a County Building inspector all cleared the fireplace as safe and undamaged. From our Level II inspection report: "(The Firm) could not see any major gaps or cracks and no evidence of a damaged flue from a fire. This flue is clean." I don't know what

charged the buyers for the inspection, but I ended up paying $215 for the other inspections to disprove the initial report. I feel like they were hoping that, as someone who's trying to sell in a bad

, I'd be desperate and would pay anything to get the deal done. I guess I should feel lucky--if it had been a reasonable estimate, I might have just hired them to do the (non-existent) work.

Update: I had originally rated them as an F, but I really appreciate

's response. Second opinions are a must for any project, and I can respect his estimate of the scope of work based on his belief that the tiles were faulty.
