"We were uncomfortable with our interactions with
. First, all of our attempts to reach the company by phone went to voicemail. This resulted in phone tag that" lasted several days. Once contact was made, the appt was scheduled for two weeks hence @ 11:30 a.m. on August 1, which was almost three weeks after the package was purchased. Beware the 30-day money back warranty. On the day of the estimate, the owner surprised us by showing up two hours early at 9:30. When I told him we had been told the appt was at 11:30, he said it was scheduled at 10, but he was working in the neighborhood. That the appt was at 10 was not true, and I suspect that he was not 'working in the neighborhood,’ but at that point it was not a huge deal. However, upon inspection of our fireplace, in which we had a flue fire, he estimated replacement of the flue @ $4000. When I told him the flue had been replaced less than 10 years ago for $1000, he determined not only the flue, but the entire fireplace would have to be replaced as they no longer made that model of fireplace. He would have to tear off the outside chimney as well to get to it. Estimate $4000. It seemed to us that this work was potentially superfluous and the price inflated. This was a minor flue fire that extinguished itself without fire hoses and no visible damage. He then told us we needed to have a fire restoration company (with which he worked closely) come in and repaint and clean the entire house to rid it of soot and smoke that we might smell "when it's humid." I felt that just getting the flue cleaned/replaced would probably eliminate any problem, but he was persuasive that we contact this company and let them deal with the insurance company, as they had much expertise in the insurance aspect. (Insert red flag here) Upon further investigation (which I realize I should have done more thoroughly beforehand), while he was given an 'A' rating by Angie's List, the negative reviews (from 'C' to 'F' ratings) were further disturbing for misleading customers, dishonest and inconsistent communication, shoddy work, missed appointments, and inappropriate responses to customer complaints, which I fully expect to see in response to this review. Since my original complaint, our insurance company also had issues making contact with
. Phone calls were unanswered and there were no return phone calls for messages left trying to get a copy of the estimate. I tried to get our money refunded for this deal on August 16, but since it was four days over the 30-day grace period, they could only apply it to another chimney cleaning deal on Angie's List. We have since contacted another chimney sweep, who has given us an estimate of $1600 for flue replacement and chimney repair, $2400 less than the $4000 quoted to us by
. I could not recommend this business based on our experience. I also caution you to look over all reviews and be vigilant regarding the 30-day refund policy.

"
was responsive in calling me back to set up an appointment. That appointment ended up being rescheduled due to other jobs that day taking longer than expected." I had no issue with that and rescheduled a week later.
was actually early for the second appointment and was done within an hour. He taped all the seams on my woodstove's pipe so the soot didn't spray all over the place when he brushed it. Then he cleaned so well that I didn't have to vacuum up after him. This is how it should be but rarely ever is, so it was most appreciated. He then re-caulked the flashing on my roof. I plan to use
again next year (I burn a cord of wood each season).

"It went great. He didn't try to talk me into buying anything I didn't need. (always a plus). He came and went straight to work. When he left, he left me confident in utilizing" my fireplace. I intend to hire him next year for an annual inspection.

They were on time, having additionally called 20 minutes before arriving. They did not have to clean the furnace flue as that was clean and would be an unnecessary expense; they noticed some small cracks in the chimney crown and said it could be done at a later date but to not neglect it. Fair, honest and reasonable.

The provider attempted provide the service after we had cancelled the service by calling to state they were on their way to provide. It was one of the more frustrating lack of communication experience I've had with a company.

. He merely went around the inside and outside checking all possibly entries. In just two weeks, with a rat already inside at the time of service,we don't know if it was successful.

They were prompt, professional and courteous. The work was completed under warranty from their last visit of 2012. It is wonderful to see a company that stands by their work. I highly recommend using them for any chimney needs.

, the proprietor was very professional, and was apologetic that they could not perform service on our ductwork as we have a gravity system (old octopus-style). I would amend their information on both Angie's List and their website with a statement about not performing service on gravity furnace ducting. I found out only after I purchased the $99 Angie's List deal, which I'm hopeful will be refunded immediately (I sent a request via the email link).

The service provider was a little late getting back into contact with us after we purchased the Angie's List special. He recommended we do a camera inspection of the chimney since we just bought the home. The chimney inspection was an extra cost but it was a reasonable fee so we went ahead with it. The service provider was professional and courteous during our experience with him. He completed the service and made a couple of recommendations.
