Fireplace Installation And Maintenance reviews in Salem


I've never given my Chimney much thought - until last Sunday.
Apparently Hurricane Sandy was so powerful it blew the top few courses right off the Chimney and onto my roof. With Winter fast approaching I needed to get this fixed right away.
My Chimney is small, 50 years old, and is only about one foot square by two feet tall. It's really only an exhaust for my Gas Furnace. But as such, it is vital.
At first I was going to do it myself, and headed to Home Depot for about $50 worth of new tools and supplies. But when I put up my ladder, it was just not long enough. It reached the roof, but just barely. To be safe you want at least three rungs to extend above the roof. I've been up there before with this ladder, but did not want to

it again.
So it was either spend $200 on a longer ladder, or call somebody. I went right to Angie's List, and found a Chimney Sweep and Repairman in my own neighborhood. I like to hire Contractors that live close by - with the expectation that perhaps the time they save in commuting and the gas they save in driving might result in a lower cost. And why not support someone in the neighborhood ?
I called

in the late morning, and he said he could look at it that same afternoon. It was Veteran's Day, and was unseasonably warm. Perfect weather for Roof Work.
He put up his ladder, which was plenty long, and we both checked out the damage. He said he could fix it right away, and quoted me $175. As this was less than a new ladder alone, I gave him the job instantly.
He went right to work, cleaned the bricks, placed them with new mortar, formed a sloped Crown on the top, which it never had before. The he installed a Stainless Steel Cap for me. I must emphasize I supplied the Cap - they can be expensive. There is no way he could do this work for what I paid and include a Cap. But if you lack a Cap you should definitely pay

extra to buy you one and install it.

He completed the job just as it getting dark, and as he had a minute or two before it became completely black, he even cleaned my Gutters at no extra charge ! This is a dangerous job that I have always avoided. It was nice of

to do it for me. He did not use a brush or a hose in gutters, but just removed the major debris. Which was great !
A fun fact is

even looks the part of a Chimney Sweep. No, he's not covered in soot, nor talks in a Cockney Accent. But he is tall and thin, with a jet-black goatee. If Disney ever remakes

I called the company to have the fireplace and furnance fuel flues swept and inspected. The technicians were on time, professional and explained everything in detail with photos for some additional worked needed because a clay liner was deteriorated for the furnace side of the chimney. They gave me a reasonable price and I went ahead with the repair work. Overall, a postive experience and I will recommend this company to friends.
