Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
showed up right on time. He was professional, personable, and efficient. I have nothing but good things to say about
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
and his service. He didn't try to up-sell me on anything and was willing to be a quasi consultant on some items that he won't make any profit from when I implement those solutions.
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
is a quality chimney sweep and a genuinely nice person.

Recommended waterproofing exterior of chimney and spray lining of chimney interior. We could not find the right environmental conditions to do the recommended work. Eventually I no longer heard from the company. I waterproofed the exterior myself and I will consider other options concerning spray lining materials offered by other companies.

I had bought a new house and he cleaned the chimney and the dryer vent. He re-arranged the stones in the chimney and now it looks really nice. He also cleaned the dryer vent which was full of cat hair (the previous house owner had 4 cats). This was the second time I called him; he also worked on the chimney of my previous house and did a very good job.

This service was excellent. This is our first season with 40 year-old fireplaces and
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was extremely helpful in explaining potential issues and how to operate and maintain these fireplaces. We also discussed options for masonry projects, for a new hearth and re-facing the exterior chimney, services which
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
also offers. I highly recommend
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
to anyone in need of this type of service. We look forward to working with
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
in the future.

It went great! We have dealt with a lot of contractors over the years and we can honestly say
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
& Masonry were they most conscientious and considerate we have ever worked with. They arrived during our garage sale for the initial visit to see what we needed done so it was a little chaotic. One thing that we needed done was overlooked and we realized it when we got their initial quote so I emailed them and asked them to include it. When they showed up to do the work that one thing was overlooked again. I emailed them about it and said please just stop by the next time you are in our area to take care of it. Got an email right back and they apologized that it didn't get added in to the quote and by the time I got home from work they had already stopped by and taken care of the issue! These guys were great and their work was top notch!

I love my gas logs, and was concerned that I might not be able to afford the repairs quoted by another source. The previous estimate - $1500 - was for replacing the gas valve entirely, which meant drilling through the brick and concrete hearth, replacing the valve, and then reconstructing the hearth.
So I looked on Angie's List for a company that might do the repairs less expensively, and
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was the top-rated company for gas logs. I emailed them, and received a call that evening from the owner, Arvydas Didas. He told me that there's a safe way to make the gas useable without drilling through the brick and concrete, and quoted a price of $200 (before even seeing the fireplace). We set up an appointment for today (less than a week after I first contacted the company). This morning, Arvydas and his helper,
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
, arrived around 9:30. They checked the gas valve in my crawl space, before doing anything in the fireplace. Then they installed a new on/off valve that is joined to the gas line itself, and didn't require drilling into the hearth. The whole installation took less than an hour. Now, to use the gas logs, I can turn the gas on with just a turn of the knob, and turn it off the same way.
I am so happy to have found
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
! This is an especially tight time for me financially, and I couldn't see spending more than a mortgage payment to fix a "luxury" item like gas logs. But, thanks to Arvydas's knowledge, for a total of $200 I am ready for cold weather and mornings by the fire with a cup of coffee (Fair Trade coffee, of course).
Arvydas was friendly and professional. If I ever need other work done on my fireplace, I will be sure to call him!
I see that
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
is classified by Angie's List as a "chimney sweep." I think this is not fully accurate. Arvydas's card shows that they do: fireplace sales, installation, maintenance, and gas logs.

Overall I was very pleased with
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
work. The one headache was the
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
took much longer to get in than the distributor originally had said.
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
apologized profusely for the delay, but I see this as no fault of his, every week he would update me with the information the distributor passed along to him as to the status of the order.
When the
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
finally arrived he had it installed in one day. Him and his crew were very polite and professional... then the auger failed to move on testing the unit. He pulled the unit out and brought it back to his shop, where it was found to have a defective motor. Within a week he got the part in, repaired the unit and had it reinstalled.
I will be hiring
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
again for all of my chimney/
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
needs. However, I probably will not order another Breckwell
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
.

Job was explained thoroughly, work done very cleanly and efficiently, and on time. Willing to split the work into separate parts so that we didn't have a big payment all at once. We would definitely use them again--they've been the best chimney sweeps we have used so far. And no hard sell on additional items--only the things that we needed for safety.

This company was recommended by our condo management office for units with chimneys, and just happened to notice Ash Busters $99 deal a few week after. They responded to my purchase by email to ask me to contact them by phone to schedule the appointment. They were flexible with scheduling, esp since it's before the fall demand which can be booked a month out. The technician,
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
, was very professional and courteous. He contacted me by phone the day of the appointment to let me know he could come earlier, which worked out great. He put down a tarp and even removed the dry stacked wood we had in the fireplace (putting it all back when he finished). He explained the process and answered all of my questions thoroughly. It took just under an hour and was interesting to see the images of the camera, going the length of the chimney interior. The high powered vacuum did trigger the circuit breaker once, but it was towards the end of the cleaning and was reset fine. I definitely plan on telling my management office and neighbors about my positive experience with Ash Busters.

While cleaning the air ducts they found that of the two heaters in the house, one of them had never been cleaned before, so they cleaned that one as well. They also found out why the air conditioning doesn't get that cold: it's not because it's old, it's because there is no coolant in the unit anymore. So that was a surprise, but now we know. Thanks
