"I was skeptical because all they did was run a 12" diameter wire brush up my 12" pipe. They kept adding 5' extensions onto the brush until it had reached the full" 25' length of the pipe. However, just to be sure, I took a very powerful 500 watt light and got down inside the fireplace and looked up into the finished job and I was quite surprised at their results: the pipe was clean . . bare steel. So, I'd definitely use them again, you cannot beat the price and the scheduling / coordination / communications are EXCELLENT!!

"Very well so far...a little pricey but we've had the house since 1988 and the fireplace works-but it fills the house with smoke. So far, I'm impressed with Top Hat. The" jury's still out on the final product which will be a working, functioning fireplace.

An experienced and knowledgeable
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
professional arrived on time to inspect and clean a wood burning fireplace chimney. He inspected the chimney using a video camcorder, which could be extended to the full length of the chimney. I watched a Real-time video display while the camcorder was in the chimney; afterwards he provided me with a written report. Upon completion of the job, the site was still as clean as it was before he arrived. We were completely satisfied with Fox and would recommend their services.

They installed a 12x16 flue tile, crown, top mounted the damper and
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
pointed the chimney roof line. I decided to wait on having the counter flashing done til next year, so they caulked both chimneys to hold me over until they could come back. The chimneys look great and I'm especially pleased with the new damper--I didn't have one. I'm looking forward to not feeling that draft from the fireplace this year!

From the very first phone call,

at
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was the ultimate professional...answered the phone personally on my first call, we discussed my issue, he gave me an estimate, and set a date. The week of the appt. I called to reconfirm, he had everything correct. On the day of service he showed up on time with an assistant cleaned my chimney, fixed the stuck damper (was due to soot behind the damper, as
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
had suspected). Offered a break on the price as I am an AngiesList member...they were in and out in no time, they protected my living room while doing the work, and it was a joy! Can't wait to use the fireplace now! Thanks

This was a pretty exhausting process. The first month, I assumed, I couldn't get anyone out because I work in Bloomington during the week. Once I spoke with
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
(who was very friendly) I told him what I wanted and we agreed that he would send out workers while I was gone. My grandmother in Alabama was also ill, then put on hospice so I was out of town on the weekends. Two weeks went by and I received an email about my "chimney cleaning." I explained it was for this specific deal and the work was scheduled while I was away on my last visit with my grandmother. I came home and none of the beds were weeded. Everything had been cut back and I saw 3.5 yard bags by my garage. We had also decided that his "workers" would stay and finish what couldn't be encompassed with the deal and I would be invoiced. Basically, I now need to call out another company to do the same thing. I was asked multiple times what "deal" I had purchased but up until my temporary position in Bloomington I did my own yard work. I could produce that many lawn bags within a half hour. I am gone too often leaving little time to take of this myself. I feel I wasted two months when I could have paid someone to come out that actually would have performed the work required.

The technician was very professional. He clearly was very knowledgable and explained what needed to be done, what didn't and his findings upon inspecting he chimney and flues. He took his time, enough time, to make sure he did the job right and answered all of my questions.

I have used other companies before and definitely would use

again. As a matter of fact, I am looking to install a wood

insert and plan to use them for the installation of it - that's how impressed I was.

I work for a company that truly values customer service (JD Power award

was worthy of a JD Power customer satisfaction award.

My renter says
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
was: Fast, professional, friendly and super tidy. The only negative is he didn't have a bag to put the ash that was in the fireplace from previous tenants.
I would give him a above avg rating.

I scheduled a chimney cleaning for 9/27 that was cancelled the morning of the cleaning due to rain. They tried to reschedule for a weekday 10/8 but both my wife and I work so they fit us in on Saturday 10/11. Less than two hours before the appointment on the 11th they again cancelled due to rain. Due to the Angie's list review I suggested

to a neighbor, who also booked for 9/27. He took the 10/8 reschedule and shared that the cleaning was done 100% from inside the house. When I asked to be scheduled for the following Saturday, 10/18, he reluctantly did it but mentioned that it's the busy season. In all fairness to
Portland Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
he did offer a discount if I'd keep the third appointment with him. I cancelled and will use another provider.
