After being blown off by 2 other contractors who were not on Angie's list (one I had used previously and another that had been recommended) I am happy to have found
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
. He contacted me immediately after my email and set up an appointment to come out in 2 days for an estimate. He was on time, which was greatly appreciated. From all the reviews I had been reading I saw that all the contractors were extremely busy during this time of year, which
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
confirmed. I had anticipated that my small project would take weeks before he could get to it so was pleasantly surprised when
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was ready to install it 2 weeks later. His men were courteous, efficient and cleaned the entire area when finished. I would definitely use him again.

I can't say enough good things about
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
! This was my first experience with chimney repair, and I knew nothing.
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was friendly, patient, cheerful and helpful on the phone. When I had a question about the differences in brick,
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was equally patient and explained it clearly to me. I got several estimates for this job, and while Sound Chimney was competitively priced and has good reviews as well, I made my final decision based on
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
's visit to look over my project and give me an estimate. He was prompt, professional, personable, thorough in his inspection, and equally important, I felt comfortable with him. I didn't feel like he was trying to hard-sell me. He explained the situation and the charges for each part of the work, gave me a catalog showing the brick choices, and left me to make up my own mind. At no time did I feel like things weren't clear, or that he was upselling me or recommending things I may not really need. As a new homeowner, this gave me the comfort level I needed to schedule the work.
The work was done on the day scheduled, at the time scheduled, and finished within the estimated time allowed.

Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
brought all the materials to do the job, were respectful of my cluttered landscaping and yard (it's a fixer-upper!), stacked the old bricks neatly where I asked, cleaned up after the job was finished. The next week, they stopped by to seal it, which was explained to me with the initial work order.
The new chimney looks great! It's still summer so we haven't tried out the fireplace or furnace yet, but just knowing the chimney is sound and safe to use is well worth it. I highly recommend
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
for any masonry work. Great work and great group of people.

Great - The crew showed up on time and once advised the details of the job they began, first preparing the edging area, then laying down the concrete edging.
The job took all day. Its looks great.
I took him up on his mulching offer and his crew returned a few days later and mulched. Another great job.
Strongly recommend for concrete edging.

Mr.
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
visited my house and took note of the several projects and repairs that were needed. He provided me a rough estimate of the costs, indicating that final costs would be more or less based on what he found to be the actual causes. As each project was undertaken, Mr.
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
kept me informed on a daily basis, alerting me to complications that necessitated additional attention.
He was meticulous and thorough with each project but nevertheless worked quickly and with efficiency. His manner was unfailingly polite and cheerful, inspiring confidence and allaying concerns about costs. He provided informative answers when asked.
His work required that he be in and out of the house which he managed unobtrusively.
Normally I really dislike the necessity of having strangers in the house but Mr.
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
's demeanor and competence did not disturb in the least.

Owner returned my call for a quote within the hour. Was very courteous and gave me advice for handling a deteriorating unused chimney. I told him that our roof needs replacing, and he recommended that we have the roof contractor do the chimney demo. A less scrupulous contractor would have suggested that he do the work separately from the roofers. Thanks for your time and honest feedback!

Just had my chimney/fireplace inspected by
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
. I can’t say enough about how pleased I
am with what he did and with how he did it. He totally knew what he was looking at, what was needed to
fix the issues he saw, and very professionally handled all that was needed to
be done. Very knowledgeable, very professional, very courteous, very
personable.
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
uses current technology and equipment, including
camera inspections. I highly recommend them. Amazing.

When we were getting quotes for this job,
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was the only one to ask to come into the house and examine the chimney from the bottom where it connected to the furnace. It had been so long since it had been cleaned that it was just horrible! He showed me, using a mirror, all the debris from 25 years of burning oil and having fires in the fireplace. It was frightening! He explained to us that our fairly new furnace was not working efficiently because of the clogged chimney. Then he sat with us at the dining room table and explained everything to us and what each item in the quote was. He showed us all his proofs of license and insurance as well as a list of references. He was so professional and knowledgeable as well as very polite and personable. His quote was quite a bit higher than the others but no one had included the major cleaning, steel cover or the repair of the damper. In fact the others had merely stepped out of their trucks, looked up at the chimney, and quoted a price that covered the chimney only. I so appreciated
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
's thorough examination and complete restoration of our chimney system to restore us to safe and clean use of our fireplace again.

The workmanship was top notch and exceeded my expectations!! My husband and I were delighted at the quality finished look we got, instead of just a "patch job". We were also happy about how the crew cleaned up after themselves and their professional yet friendly manner.
I would not hesitate to call on this company again for future jobs.

They came to look at
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
and gave me a verbal estimate of what the repair would cost (~$600) and were supposed to send me a written estimate. I never heard from them again! In the meantime, Nick's Chimney Repair came out and did a written estimate on the spot for about the same price, so I went with Nick's and was happy with them.

Our condo association contacted
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
to help remedy a building water leak affecting the exterior wall / windows.
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and wasted no time inspecting the building exterior in the area thought to be causing the problem. Within 10 minutes
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
had identified a 1/8" diameter hole in the flashing and stated that this was definitely our problem. Using a water hose we successfully recreated the leak, proving that he was correct! Due to
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
's quick identification of our problem, we were then able to refocus our
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
for a contractor specializing in roof/exterior repairs. Because
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
specializes in masonry and chimney repairs he chose not to bid for our job. But we will be forever grateful for his expertise and quick problem-solving ability.
Palo Alto Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
should always be considered when selecting a contractor.
