Sample Reviews


We contacted the company because I noticed some mortar cracking at the top of the Chimney.

came over and went to the basement and looked at our steam boiler and said that we were non-compliant with NFPA211 and that there are gaps and decay and can potentially be hazardous. Our clay tiles were deteriorating and some sections were missing. We decided to fix the problem because we have two little kids and we thought that it was worth the investment for peace of mind, safety, and resale value in the future knowing that it was done properly.
The crew was supposed to come between 9-10, but they called around 9:30AM stating that they received the incorrect parts, so they wouldn't be able to come until12-2PM.

came around 1:30PM and the job was done before 5PM. They were really professional and answered all of my questions in details.

even informed me of potential issues that he saw around my house and gave me plenty of inexpensive solutions. Being a first-time home owner, I appreciated all his expertise. Now, we are just waiting to get the Chimney inspected by the town, which the company guarantees that it passes.

Work was not accomplished, daily phone calls have not been returned, email response has not been received. $500.00 check that we provided up front for materials has been cashed but nothing has been accomplished. BBB now shows suspect the business no longer exists.

I had contacted this contractor to have my front porch re-cemented. He did return my initial call the same day but left a message that was a bit short stating he was going to mow his lawn so not to bother calling him back and he would call me another time. That was fine. He did contact me the following day and I explained the job and what my problem was. He gave some advice but said he would look it over. We set up an appointment for the following week after work so I could discuss with him. The appointment was scheduled for 5:30 p.m. I left work and rushed home to meet him and waited, and waited. He never showed up or called. Finally an hour later I called him only to have him tell me that he was in the area earlier and decided to just come by and take a look for himself. He never called me to cancel our scheduled appointment or even to say he was coming by earlier. I thought this was incredibly unprofessional and when I mentioned it he got snotty and basically told me he had come all the way from

and did not see the point in "Sitting around for an hour in my driveway". Seriously? I reminded him that even though this made sense it was incredibly rude and unprofessional to blow me off without a phone call if he wanted to come earlier. I wouldn't have minded if he wanted to come earlier and I would not have bothered to rush home had I known he wasn't going to show at our scheduled. He finally did apologize for that and said he agreed he should have called. I was willing to give the benefit of the doubt and he gave me a verbal price on the job.. I will note he almost seemed annoyed by the thought of doing this job and made sure I knew it would be a hassle for him and his crew. Regardless I told him that sounded okay and asked that he send me a formal quote so I had paperwork. He said he would, took my email address and that was the last I heard from him. I never received a quote from him. I called him back two weeks later to follow up and left him a message saying I hadn't received the quote and asked him to contact me. He never did. He never returned my call or sent me a quote. This guy is incredibly unprofessional and, in my opinion, has terrible customer service. Many times he made me feel as if I was putting him out by asking for the work and does not know how to talk to customers. IF you have a high dollar job it appears he gets good reviews but I'm thinking if the job won't bring in the higher dollars, you don't matter much. Beware when you contact! You may or may not get a follow through or a professional response.

I am about to do a complete bathroom demo/ construction with
Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
. He's more reliable, organized, versatile, and capable than any contractor or worker I've ever employed. Great attitude, flexible, he's got good ideas but listens. No surprises except for the GREAT quality of his work. The previous work went perfectly. Weather always comes into play with outside work, but everything was finished on time.

always called and texted me back promptly and showed up early consistently. His employees are courteous and polite, and do great work. Can't say enough good things about him.

Removed the insert, cleaned it in its entirety, the flue etc. Clean workmanship, ie. furniture, floor and electronics protected. Took their time to ensure a thorough cleaning.

I called RMR because we started our wood-burning fireplace for the first time this season and experience a little too much smoke in the house. Never had that issue in the past. We set the appointment and
Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
called that day to say he was in the area and would like to come by a little early. We agreed. He arrived in minutes with his crew. He came in the house in advance of the crew to check out the work needed. After taking pictures of the damper and up the chimney, he proclaimed it clean and not in need of any service. We checked it from the outside and concluded the same. Everything was fast, to the point, and he provided an honest assessment. He was in and out in ten minutes and didn't charge me a thing. I highly recommend him for his professionalism, knowledge, and reasonable business sense.

This work was performed over 2 days. Removing a concrete slab on the first day & pouring a new slab on the second day. Communication from
Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was excellent from the time they came to provide an estimate thru completion of the work. They had a sufficient number of workers to do the job. The workers were as neat as they could be considering that this job required using a

hammer to remove the existing slab & pouring a new slab. We are more than satisfied with the work that was performed.

While the service to clean our fireplace and chimney was decent, the inspection was anything but. The two men who came to our home inspected both fireplaces in our house. They quickly told us that the walls and floor of both fireplaces were "unsafe" and needed to be replaced and quoted a estimated of about $1,500. Given the fact that we just bought the house less than a year earlier, I found it hard to believe that we needed a repair of that magnitude. The home inspection report was thorough and deemed both chimneys safe for use. So we reached out to reputable chimney/fireplace experts for a second opinion. It turns out we do not need that work at all and the chimneys are perfectly safe for use. Either the two professionals from
Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
were trying to take advantage of customers by quoting us for work we didn't need, or they were inexperienced. Either way, we cannot not hire this company again for services.
To be fair, they were prompt getting here on time and called to confirm their appointment.

The work took about two hours, as estimated, and we are now rid of the wood that was used by the builder to correct a spacing issue. We now have a larger limestone sill that completely fills the gap between our foundation and recreation room window. The finished project looks great and the estimated cost was spot on! We are very happy and would not hesitate to recommend the services of this company to any of our family or friends.

The work was poorly done and we were charged much more than we were quoted. The owner laughingly asked, "Are you ready for this.", when he presented us the bill. I recently had a masonry guy come out and perform a couple of needed tasks to our chimney and house. He did a exactly what he said he would do for the price he quoted us. When he was done he asked about the work that was done prior, by

.A. He said it was of poor quality. He said the creosote had cracks in it prior and that instead of removing and reapplying it
Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
simply painted a new
Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
of creosote over the old. He said I needed to keep an eye on it every year as it wasn't going to last nearly as long as it would have. This shyster and his son are the worst contractors I've ever had done on a home of mine. Enough said.
