Framingham Fireplace Contractors Reviews
The individual who assessed the job suggested that a permit was not required because it was a replacement of pre-existing.
Before the work was to take place, I called the town inspector who contradicted that statement.
Upon informing the Sweeps individual, I was told that I would be responsible for all required permitting and that the install schedule was at risk because a delay waiting for the permit would cause it to be pushed out to the following month.
I had a roof replacement scheduled for the following day so this threw me for a loop!
I subsequently took time off from work and ran down to the town inspector and applied for the permit. The following day (one day prior to chimney install) the paperwork was ready for pickup at the town office. I was again required to take time to get the paperwork at the town office for the contractor to sign because the
HE could have been much more accommodating to make the process and my effort easier.
I was told I could meet him at their office that morning to obtain his signature.
When I arrived at the office with the paperwork, he had already departed.
I had to chase him down at another job site to get his signature.
I was made to feel that it was MY fault that I had missed him.
After that, the he arrived to do the work and just left him alone because I was somewhat miffed and didn't want a confrontation on top of what I'd already gone through.
The chimney has been working effectively since then, but I wish I could say that it had been a more pleasant experience.
Definitely get the details about permitting before scheduling these guys for work.
