"I am very happy with the new installation. Not only did they provide a better solution than the competition but at significantly less cost. After I had a new, more" efficient gas furnace installed two years ago we started to see water seeping through the basement wall from under the vent to the chimney. I found out on Angie's list Questions that it was probably due to improper venting of the furnace gases and that I should get a chimney sweep to look at the problem. Two chimney sweeps confirmed that there was a lot of condensation in the chimney due to incomplete venting. (The furnace installer should have told us we would need anew chimney system due to the higher efficiency but failed to do so). Now, our existing vent system had the furnace and boiler vents coming together in a Tee which then exited thru the basement wall to the chimney. The first Sweep said he proposed installing a new chimney liner but leave this venting configuration the same. The second Sweep (
) immediately said that he would connect the boiler and furnace vents separately to the chimney liner and provide a 'clean-out' port, for significantly less cost. I went online and found that
had described the proper way to connect the vents, the weaker one above the stronger one. Apparently the vents should never connect at the same point because then the vents conflict with each other and prevent proper flow of exhaust gas up the chimney. So obviously we chose
.
and
did the job in less than four hours and did an excellent, clean job.

responded to my purchase of one of his Angie's List deals with a quick phone call and we were able to setup a date and time for the" same week. He arrived on time and had adequate material to cover a path from our garage to the fireplace in our family room. I told him that we had not used our fireplace in 2 years and my wife wanted it checked before turning it back on. He said that it was not necessary to clean a gas fireplace every year because there is not the build up of resins that you get from burning wood. He brushed and vacuumed inside the fireplace and checked the damper. We talked about the current location of the gas valve (inside the fireplace) and he said that while it was not up current codes, he did not consider it a problem as long as I was comfortable using the valve.
also went outside and climbed on a ladder to inspect the chimney. He reported that there were some mild cracks in the crown but overall the chimney was in good condition. I suggested that he start a fire to make sure that everything was OK and that my wife would appreciate the warmth on such a cold day. However, a gas valve in our basement had been closed so he needed to find it and turn it back on.
was very conscientious and I enjoyed chatting with him. I appreciated his attention to detail and his honesty. He did not attempt to "up-sell" me into expensive, unneeded repairs as some of his competitors apparently do.

It's the time of year when the winter weather can take a toll. Follow this winter maintenance checklist to protect your home, your car and your health.

5 questions to ask your chimney sweep

One highly rated provider shares five important questions to ask about your chimney sweep professional before hiring them to complete the job.

gas fireplace with fire burning
Fireplaces, Chimney Sweep, Plumbing

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

Very nice tech,
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
came with a new guy who was also named
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
. I was upsold from the $99 coupon deal to an additional $169.95 for "deeper" cleaning because I was told our ducts were very dirty (they most likely were after a couple remodels). I was also told I should have caps placed on my two fireplace chimney tops to prevent animals and birds from entering for an additional cost of $269.90 (our house has never had chimney caps in 40 years). Plus a $20 service charge. They worked very quickly and left the inside of the house covered with a
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
of dust and one cold air vent in the lower level with dust hanging out of it and on the floor beneath it. I do not understand their methodology. They came in, turned the furnace thermostat up high (75-80 degrees) apparently to get the blower going at top speed. They attached a large vacuum device to the furnace. Then, without removing the grills, started blowing high-pressure air into each vent, one at a time, including the hot air vents! I would think you would blow into the cold air vents, but not the hot air vents! Dust was blowing everywhere. I did not watch them use the "predator" tool to do the "deeper" cleaning of the ducts, but I heard a lot of noise. I cannot see where they entered the ducts to do this level of cleaning (no cutouts made). Since they left, we have spent a lot of time dusting the house. The air in our house is no cleaner after they left then before they came - actually it is worse! Obviously we are very disappointed with the quality of work performed and the expense we paid.

In addition to doing a terrible job on the walls, he did $5300 damage to my roof, gutter guards and irrigation system. He secured scaffolding by placing nails in many shingles and ruined a ridge vent. I had a 7 year old roof that was inspected by my roofer 1 month before
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
began his work. My roof was in perfect shape and the roofer indicated the water spots on my ceilings were from cracked stucco that needed repair. When the roofer came back after my stucco job, he indicated that over $3000 damage was done by
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
and needed repair.
My gutter guards were in very good shape before the stucco job. On multiple occasions, I asked
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
to protect them but they were bent by him as he walked on them and placed ladders on them. The repair cost was $1100.
During his work on the second wall, he broke the pipe to my irrigation system and never protected the open pipe. Pieces of stucco fell into the open pipe for 2 weeks and after he repaired the pipe and opened the system, debris travelled to my valves and made them stuck in the open position. He never told me about the broken pipe until I brought it up.
It took me over 2 months for
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
to share with me the information about his liability insurance. He claims to have only damaged my irrigation system, yet the appraiser representing his insurance company saw in my favor for all damages and confirmed to me that the damage extensive, avoidable and inexcusable.
Without question, the most disappointing issue is that all of this is that the roofer, a home inspector and 3 siding contractors have all said the same thing. The job is terrible. There are gaps in the stucco where screen is seen, lack of adequate flashing and already a crack the new stucco. All 5 have agreed that I need to remove his work and redo in order to prevent water damage in my house.
They all say they have never seen such a poor job.
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
denies that he neglected certain key areas of flashing and that the job is perfect.
In addition, the job site is still a mess with stucco pieces and debris all over my flower beds.
I have contacted him in hopes of some sort of financial agreement as I am going to spend another $15000 to replace his work, but he has told me to never call him again.

We had a pretty bad chimney fire, we called the fire dept and they were able to put it out. It turns out that the Mason chimney had cracked and because of the age of the wood
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
and the way it was put in ages ago, it needed to be replaced. I called
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
that afternoon and made an appointment with
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
the very next day.
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was very knowledgeable about what could and couldn't be done by EPA standards. I was informed why the chimney was building up creosote very quickly (too many bends) why it was important to use smaller pipe (the cost is way less) and why I needed to get an EPA endorsed woodstove (they burn way more efficiently). I was very comfortable since
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
gave me all the information I was unsure about and didn't rush the consultation. It was very nice that he listened to all my concerns and questions. The parts came quickly and I was very pleased with

's work ethic. He was very conscientious. He arrived and got right to work. He worked with one other gentleman and they both did a great job of putting in the new
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
, pipe and even told me I had a problem with my roof (too many layers of roof shingles I didn't even know were up there). I was glad he was honest with what he saw so I could get the issue taken care off soon. They cleaned the work mess both days they were here. I really appreciated how considerate they both were. Before leaving, he started a fire and explained everything I needed to know. I couldn't have been more pleased with the job
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
did! I did have two other Businesses come out and do an estimate. I didn't feel comfortable with either one of them. My home is more important that 15 minutes of time to "check things out". I would highly recommend
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
for all chimney needs. They are very knowledgeable with what they do. I couldn't be more pleased! I will definitely use them for all of my future chimney sweeps and needs.

This was an Angies list special. Cost was appealing compared
to other companies. Due to the promotion we were given an appointment 4 weeks
out (busy time of the year for them). Not a problem for us. The service was great. They came in did the job and
left. The only challenge was punctuality. They called to
let us know but it was not ideal since we lost the day waiting.
We had an issue with our chimney after the visit. We thought
it was related to the cleaning. We called and they responded immediately. They explained that the
issue we had was not related to their visit. And at the end of the day it was not an issue at all. They came and took a look at the problem. They explained what was happening and provided a solution to us free of charge. They were again professional
and courteous. We were very happy to have the 2nd visit as they also explained the other services they will provide for us in the future (Vent cleaning). Overall we were very happy with the service and will use them in the future.

We were very happy with
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
. We purchased a coupon for a chimney inspection and cleaning. We purchased a house last spring, so this was the first time we had anyone out to assess the shape of our chimney. They were very quick to respond after we contacted them initially. They provided us with lots of information about our chimney, complete with pictures. They were also very patient in explaining their assessment to us, especially because we knew absolutely nothing. They also cleaned out our chimney so that we would be ready for the winter.

I had called the afternoon before and was given a window of time for the next morning. They arrived precisely on time at 9:00am. Very courteous and professional. They did a great and thorough job of removing the snow very efficiently. They even cleaned up the walkways when they were done. The price was extremely reasonable as I had heard other companies charging 3times that amount. I have used this company before for chimney and flue work. They even have removed raccoons from my chimney! I am extremely pleased with

We couldn't be happier with the work that
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
did. Our damper was broken, so we asked him about replacing it with a top-mounted damper. He gave us the pros and cons of doing that (versus a traditional damper), and we decided to go with that. He swept out the chimney first and did an extremely thorough job (he made sure to show us the "before" and "after" and it was obvious how much cleaner it was when he was done). He also had his shop vac going the whole time so as not to get the living room dirty. Then he installed the top-mounted damper, complete with a chain that hooks onto the side of the chimney. He showed us how to use it; you could hear the damper sealing as we lifted it up and down. Then he had us go outside while he lifted it up and down himself and showed us how to operate it. we've had it for about two months now and have had no issues with it with all the winter weather. we've also noticed that the living room is slightly warmer with the chimney properly sealed. All while he was working,
Somerville Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was telling stories and cracking jokes and giving his recommendations for different restaurants and service providers in the area. We'll definitely be using him again the next time we need to get our chimney swept!

Overall experience was excellent from start to finish. Appt. was scheduled on line and I was kept informed by timely reminder emails of the appt. I received several calls during the day to advise me of the progress toward my appointment.
The technician,
