The original estimate was $3500.00 to re-apply stucco finish to our front porch and foundation. Once the job was started, the contractor said that our front porch was crumbling on both sides and that the

needed to be replaced. The estimate

to $7700.00. In the process of cutting granite slabs for the top of these

, an large chunk was accidentally cut out of the stone. This was left like that and cemented on. It is very noticeable. The stucco job was sloppy- so many bare spots. Stucco was spilled on siding, top of steps and left that way. The workers left garbage and cigarette butts on lawn and in my garden. When they left, they handed me a bucket of stucco mix and told me to use it to touch up the spots. I called to complain and they sent workers back. They filled in some bare spots but not all. They left the stains. The finish is irregular at the seams. There are still bare spots. They did not replace the damaged granite. They wanted to return but I did not want them near my house again. They were given one

was great to work with and completed the job timely with good quality. He also came back on the following Saturday to check and repair the inside of the chimney. Would definitely call him again for future chimney work!

On August 6 - I inquired into services as I had found this company on Angie's List. The rep did an inspection and provided a quote and required a down payment of $100, which was provided. As of August 14, via text, he indicated it would be 6 to 8 weeks. I mailed my deposit and texted on September 2 to verify if it had been received. The rep texted back they were on vacation but would see where I was on the schedule when they returned. On September 18, I texted again requesting a start date, having forgotten the original 6 to 8 week estimate. The text received back said "How long did I say it would be until we got to your job" - which is a reply I would not expect from a business owner to a potential customer. Following up, I indicated the last text on September 2 implied that contact would be made when the rep returned from vacation and I said I did not like the attitude of the previous text, and wished to get the $100 deposit back. Final word from the rep was "I was just telling you to use some common sense and read further up on the text where I told you far out I would be idiot". I do not appreciate being called an idiot and am glad this came to light before I had this person work on my chimney. There are unfortunately too many customers and not enough reputable businesses to serve them, so you have to deal with people who would rather insult customers than help them out. Avoid.

Well, it was what he didn't do. The first time we had them out, they measured our fireplace to install a new chimney cap. They never gave a quote, wouldn't return our phone calls. By

, we were able to catch them by phone at their shop. They sent someone out AGAIN, remeasured, and assured us they would install it in two weeks. Never showed up, again wouldn't return calls, zilch. don't waste your time.

I called for estimate on repointing chimney and new cap. They came and insisted on doing a "level one" interior inspection saying they wouldn't continue with estimate without it. Very obnoxious and demanding. Refused to even go on the roof and look at the exterior of the chimney. wrote up estimate for repair with "no warranty" at a price 4 times my other estimates. Would never consider them for anything.

was punctual and professional. He came out right awayinspected what the problem was and that evening I had a bid and time frame for the job. I had 2 other bids and one in particular was over $6,000 more that included work that was not even necessary. The crew was polite and cleaned up everyday and once complete made sure to explain what was done and made sure we were happy. what looked to be a real headache for us turned out to be a great experience and no hassle.

They were professional all the way! They came on time, worked until the job was done. He explained my warranty and they left. Personality wise, they were both pleasant and had manners, which I liked. I would use them again. But, hopefully, they did such a great job, I won't have to. I DO recommend

After being blown off by 2 other contractors who were not on Angie's list (one I had used previously and another that had been recommended) I am happy to have found
Binghamton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
. He contacted me immediately after my email and set up an appointment to come out in 2 days for an estimate. He was on time, which was greatly appreciated. From all the reviews I had been reading I saw that all the contractors were extremely busy during this time of year, which
Binghamton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
confirmed. I had anticipated that my small project would take weeks before he could get to it so was pleasantly surprised when
Binghamton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was ready to install it 2 weeks later. His men were courteous, efficient and cleaned the entire area when finished. I would definitely use him again.

I can't say enough good things about
Binghamton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
! This was my first experience with chimney repair, and I knew nothing.
Binghamton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was friendly, patient, cheerful and helpful on the phone. When I had a question about the differences in brick,
Binghamton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was equally patient and explained it clearly to me. I got several estimates for this job, and while Sound Chimney was competitively priced and has good reviews as well, I made my final decision based on
Binghamton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
's visit to look over my project and give me an estimate. He was prompt, professional, personable, thorough in his inspection, and equally important, I felt comfortable with him. I didn't feel like he was trying to hard-sell me. He explained the situation and the charges for each part of the work, gave me a catalog showing the brick choices, and left me to make up my own mind. At no time did I feel like things weren't clear, or that he was upselling me or recommending things I may not really need. As a new homeowner, this gave me the comfort level I needed to schedule the work.
The work was done on the day scheduled, at the time scheduled, and finished within the estimated time allowed.

brought all the materials to do the job, were respectful of my cluttered landscaping and yard (it's a fixer-upper!), stacked the old bricks neatly where I asked, cleaned up after the job was finished. The next week, they stopped by to seal it, which was explained to me with the initial work order.
The new chimney looks great! It's still summer so we haven't tried out the fireplace or furnace yet, but just knowing the chimney is sound and safe to use is well worth it. I highly recommend

for any masonry work. Great work and great group of people.
