"I got two quotes, and
was the more expensive of the two. However,
with
's quote was much more thorough and" professional. I figured that thoroughness was probably indicative of the work they do, so it was a tough decision because of the price difference. You always run the risk of going with the cheaper option just to get nickel and dimed later. The decision became much easier when
followed-up (something the other company didn't do), pointed out they warranty their work (not sure if the other company does, as they didn't mention it), and then said they'd beat the other quote by $50.
was out within a few days and had most of it done within two business days.
came back on a later day to install the custom chimney caps, and I got to sit down and talk to him. Previous to this I had only talked to him over phone or text - he left the quote at my door.
is very friendly and knowledgable, and I'd trust him with any of the brick work in my old brick home. He's also got a very sweet black lab that seems to enjoy hanging out in the truck while he works. Anyway, the work looks great and everything was cleaned up afterward. I highly recommend

Chimneys

If you have a wood-burning fireplace, be sure to have it cleaned and inspected regularly to reduce the risk of fire. But be careful who you hire because chimney-repair scams are common.

How to avoid chimney repair scams

These scams lure homeowners via phone solicitations, door-to-door sales pitches or ads offering too-good-to-be-true prices.

Regular chimney inspection and cleaning helps prevent fires from creosote buildup and saves money on repairs. Here’s a look at what’s involved and the costs.

A chimney inspection covers every part of the structure, interior and exterior. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member David G. of Portland, Oregon)

Chimneys, fireplaces and vents need to be inspected at least once per year. Even an unused chimney needs to be checked for possible animal nests or damage.

The exposed portion of your chimney receives more weather abuse than any other masonry on a building, says Bard. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Jane L. of Philadelphia)

By paying yearly attention to your chimney crown to catch issues early, you can save yourself costly chimney repairs and extend the life of your chimney.

Most all professional chimney sweeps now utilize the National Fire Protection  211 Standard for chimneys, fireplaces , Vents and solid fuel-burning appliances for chimney inspections, which determines when and whether he has to access the roof.

There are 3 levels of inspection  The most commonly performed are Level 1 and level 2  are listed:

Level 1            Done as Annual Inspection

                      Routine cleaning of the flue

                      Direct replacement of a similar appliance

Level 1 inspection is recommended for a chimney under continued service under the same conditions with the continued use of the same appliance.

IN A Level 1 inspection, your chimney service tech should examine the *READILY ACCESSIBLE portions of the appliance and the chimney connection. HE will be looking for basic Soundness of the chimney structure and flue as well as the basic appliance installations and connections. HE will also Verify that  the chimney is free of obstruction and combustible deposits.

* Readily accessible Means that no special equipment is required to gain such access, ie.Ladder

 

LEVEL 2            Upon sale or transfer of a property

                       After an operating malfunction or an external event is likely to have caused damage to the chimney

                        Addition or removal of one or more connected appliances, or the replacement of an appliance withone of a different type, a different input rting or a different efficiency.

                        Prior to relining or replacement of the flue lining

 

Level 2 insp. are required when any changes are made to the system. Changes can include a change of Fuel Type, changes in shape or material in the flue,Replacement or addition of an appliance of a disimilar type, input rating or efficiency. Building fires, chimney fire or other seismic events as well as weather events or obvious construction defects would be indicators that a level 2 is warranted.

 

Level 2 includes everything in a level 1 PLUS the *Accessible portions of the chimney exterior and interior including attic, crawl spaces and basements. it addresses proper clearances from combustible in accessible locations.There are no speciality tools required to open or access doors, panels, or coverings during a level 2 insp.  The level 2  insp should also include the visual inspection by video scanning equipment or by other means in order to examine the internaql surfaces and joints of all the flue liners inside the chimney structure. No removal or demolition or any permrnantely attached portions of the chimney or building structure or finish shall be required in a level 2 insp.

*ACCESSIBLE means if you can get to it with special equipment do it but you dont have to take apart anything for said access. Use of ladders and cameras just no demolition.

 

LEVEL 3  SEE NFPA 211 STANDARD FOR DETAILS

 

***THE REAL ANSWER to this question lies with the accessibility of the top of the chimney and roof type.  Most professional sweeps want to examine up close the top of the chimney for cracked masonry crowns , which is very common, Flashing issues, top view down flue, and for prefab chimneys to insp the condition of the Chase cover and cap.

Note that the use of a special tool (ladder) to gain access to the chimney is under a level 2 inspection, which can be additional costs since it is a much more thorough inspection.

It is possible to sweep and do a level 1 insp. without accessing the roof. 

 

Also most professional sweeps have equipment that allows us to sweep the chimney with a rotary system that is operated from inside at the fireplace opening and achieve a much better cleaning than pushing brushes down from the top and without getting on the roof. We also video scan the flue from the hearth so the homeowner can be a part of that inspection or "chimney-oscopy". They see the live action of the top of the chimney and conditions that exist inside their system so when they get their report they know they are not some stock pics that could be used to sell repairs but the actual pics of the conditions they viewed in their system. And we do not have to access the roof.

If the chimney access requires multiple ladders or is a "brush with death", there could be extra cost, and the sweep would make an onsite decision regarding the ability to safely reach the top of the chimney or have to use a lesser option of binoculars or rely on experience to determine whats going on up top based on visible symptoms,  if access is too dangerous or not possible.

 

So don't discount a sweeps knowledge or ability on whether he gets on the roof or not. Check him out on referral sites , company web site, credentials, training and experience. Get referals and check on liability insurance and you should be able to find a sweep that can meet your need. If you are in North Carolina check us out at ClassicChimney.com.

The day before they were scheduled to come and do the repair,
Salt Lake City Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
called and said his service truck was in the shop and he couldn't make it. I could not take time off work to be here for the work to be done after that time, and told him I did not want the work to be done in the winter because concrete does not do well in the cold. He agreed to refund my $192.50, and as soon as spring hit, he would come back and do the job. He left me a voice mail that they would mail me a check for that amount. After 2 weeks I e-mailed them and called them asking where my refund was. No response. I have e-mailed them twice and called them 3 times demanding my refund. They have just blown me off. Their business phone is a recording saying what services they provide and you have to leave a message with your name and phone # because they are away from their desk. THIS IS A CONSUMER WARNING.

answered my call and scheduled a visit to clean both chimneys. He arrived on time and assessed both chimneys which both desperately needed to be cleaned. He cleaned both on the spot with his heavy duty vacuum and showed me the mess that came from both cleans. He used many blankets to ensure that there was no mess. We built a fire that evening and had none of the issues of smoke that was previously happening. One of the fireboxes needed to be rebuilt so he scheduled to do that a week later. He again showed up on time. It was a complicated rebuilt and he took two needed days to complete the project that both my husband and I are very happy with.

It wasn't a very positive experience! First, I had to wait a month just to have them look at the scope of work. The owner of the company came and prepared a bid for what he thought needed to be done. The bid was $680.00. Even with the voucher I purchased, it left me owing $455.00. I feel like he inflated the cost which negated the value of the coupon. He also informed me that he could not complete the work himself and would have to bring a mason back.
I received a call from the office manager that afternoon indicating she would send me an estimate explaining the work in detail. I have still not received that e-mail or any other communication from this company!
I would never consider working with this company and now have doubts about the real value of these promotional vouchers.
I've now had 2 negative experiences from service provider's on Angie's List. I'm loosing confidence rapidly!!!

Their work was very professional and very well done. I particularly appreciated that they were able to do the job on the weekend. They rebuilt my brick chimney, which was in very bad shape, as well as lining the chimney for venting the furnace and capping the chimney appropriately. Great work, very attentive on returning phone calls and great service.

Our chimney had loose bricks that needed to be repaired. He did good quality work repairing it and seemed to take a lot of pride in it.

They did a great job. They came out and gave me the estimate, made a few suggestions, etc. What I appreciated is that they weren't pushy. Rather, they gave me options and left it to my decision. Also, once the work was done, they painted my flashing black to match the roof, which looks MUCH better than the shiny silver flashing we had before, and they did it for free.

on Angies list and called him. He returned my call promptly, went to my place and got back with an estimate within 24 hours. The work was scheduled for the next week but due to weather conditions, was delayed a few weeks. Overall job was satisfactory and would not hesitate to use him again.
