Sample Reviews


Custom fit and installed a stainless steel chimney lining in my chimney. Very responsive, recommended another company to accomplish some pre requisite work, they were outstanding, and was extremely professional. All exposed flooring was covered for protection prior to performing any work and thoroughly cleaned after all work accomplished. 5 stars...
- Debbie W.

I found
and son
to be extremely well versed in every facet of the repair work I requested.
They showed me the work that needed to be done and how they were going to do it.
They politely answered all my questions and even made additional necessary suggestions.
They were prompt and worked clean at a very fair price!
Their expertise in preparation and installation was top notch.
It was a very satisfying experience and I would highly recommend them.

I was very pleased. The gentlemen arrived a bit earlier than stated and went right to work. They were able to complete the job from the cellar so there was no need to go on the roof. After the work was finished, one of the men sat with me and explained what had been done. He asked if I had a fire extinguisher and recommended I get a carbon monoxide detector. He also asked about smoke alarms. I will use this service again. It had been much too long since I had had the chimney done. Every fall, when I turned on the heat the house had a fuel oil smell for about 2 weeks. When I used the furnace this weekend, there was no smell!
I would recommend you call early. I had to wait more than a month but that was okay since I called at the end of June.

Originally, my son located and hired

to have the fireplace serviced after Who knows how long it's been, as a Christmas present for me.

came out. They found no problems except for signs of a leak/drip-

gave a quote for the leaking roof/chimney to my son but said to check with a roofer for the work as a roofer might do the repair for less. I called a roofer and the quote I received was breathtaking (although the work to be done was very thoroughly noted). I stuck with

. Called them to ask if they'd honor the quote, then called again for the service date.

showed up right on time, put on shoe covers before he came in the house, thank you very much. While he was at it, I mentioned that the dryer vent had never been cleaned. (The vent comes out on the roof.) And he also had a look into the heating system. The heating ductwork was recently replaced (old asbestos ducting), so I wasn't worried about that, but had never changed any filters. ("Filters? It has filters and duct work? Oh yeah, that makes sense.")

put the C-clamp in the chimney (it insures that there is always a slight opening in the flu in case of gas leak). Next, he took care of the dryer, blew or sucked all kinds of lint out the pipe on the roof, then sucked more out from the dryer and vaccumed around the machine. The chimney flashing was last and sealed in a "flash." Turns out I can replace the furnace filters myself. In all, quick work, perfectly pleasant and responsible person. I'll find out later if the chimney still leaks IF we get any rain.

He kept making excuses why he didn't come. When he did come he said the 'manf' made the wrong cap because it was a single cap, not the agreed upon double cap. (Later we found out it was off the shelf from a big box store and not custom at all). The damper plate was the wrong size and had to be altered to install. Said the chimney would be waterproof. Next day it rained and he was asked to come back and honor his bid of double chimney cap. He said he would honor it which was in January 2014. He never came back, never honored the bid and we had to put a rubber tub in fireplace to catch all the rain that poured in every time it rained. He constantly said he would come back but always made excuses why he didn't come.
After several months he said he needed extra money because he had the correct double cap made and needed an additional 350.00. We told him he had already been paid and needed to finish the job. He refused to pick up new cap from people that made it. He refused to pay them for the cap they made. We communicated via text and phone from December 2013 until May 2014 and he never came back to fix the job.
We went directly to the person that made the new cap and paid him to install it.

is a charming young man but he is not professional and you cannot trust him to do the job he says he is going to do. For over 5 months It rained in our fireplace, buckled the hearth and could have damaged our beautiful 1930's original hardwood floors. Please use caution when attempting to work with this man.

After sweeping the chimney,
Hillsborough Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
gave me an estimate to seal the chimney caps and fill in some gaps in our fireplace box. The estimate was very high, over a $1,000 to do this. I asked the gentleman we had sweep our chimneys once before to come out and look at our chimneys and he addressed the issues for far less money. He is highly rated on angie's list and is experienced and knowledgeable. I should have hired him back in the first place, but I was sadly seduced by the cheap sweep price. I'm assuming
Hillsborough Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
offers these sweep deals in order to procure more work - which is fine when it is necessary. I would urge everyone to get a second opinion on additional work and the estimate.

The gutter specialist arrived early, worked efficiently, was very professional and repaired a big issue with our gutters. We were very impressed and would use again! We will be using them to install gutter guards in the future.

They arrived on time and finished in a reasonable amount of time. Cleaned out ash trap in basement and vacuumed dust while they were working to prevent any dust from escaping into the house. Thoroughly reviewed the condition of the chimneys with me. All told, I was very pleased with the job.

Well I would like to add another A+ review for Rocky and RJ Chimney Service. You simply won't find a more honest and nice guy to come to your house. I had originally contacted him to put in a liner for my new gas boiler. However, the boiler installation company at that time was including the liner for cost since the labor was part of the overall job. Rocky recommended I go with them for the liner since it made more sense for me. I then called him back about a year later to evaluate the safety of my chimney and the possible need for another liner for the wood burning side of the fireplace. This was the first time I was planning on using the fireplace and thought a liner would be a good idea. He came exactly on time to the minute and, even though I was fully prepared to purchase the liner, he talked me out of it and said that the existing flue was in excellent condition and I just didn't need a liner to start using the fireplace. He then cleaned the chimney and was extremely neat, vacuuming everything afterwards. He gave me bonus suggestions for issues with soil grade around my house related to the exterior of the chimney and also advice on fixing some missing mortar inside the fireplace. He even gave me advice on how to get fires started quickly, drafting, and proper wood burning methods. I plan on having him back at least once a year to keep an eye on the chimney. I wish all contractors treated your house and your family like theirs. don't hesitate and give him a call if you need anything done.

I see reviews like this one all the time on this site and I hoped I wouldn't have to be the one to leave one like it, but here we are. Familiar story, my husband emailed
Hillsborough Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
to get an estimate on our leaky Chimney and to take a look at our furnace pipe cap. A few days later,
Hillsborough Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
returned the email, asking for our address so he could stop by when he was i the area. Two days later, he left a voicemail on my husband's phone saying he would be in the area that afternoon and could stop by. My husband called back and let him know that was fine and we would be home.

did not stop by, my husband left another voicemail and
Hillsborough Chimney Sweeps Provider Name Locked
did not return the call. 10 days later, with no contact, we are giving up. We chose him based on the other good reviews you can see here, so maybe this is an isolated incident but I thought I'd submit our experience anyway.
