Westminster chimney sweep leaves fireplace unusable, homeowner says
I hired Westminster Chimney Sweep of Westminster, Maryland, to clean my chimney. As the two sweeps were cleaning the chimney, the vermiculite fell down the chimney and behind the wood-burning stove.
The sweeps left and said the owner would contact me to tell me what could be done to repair it, as well as give me a bill for services.
I’ve called six times, but the owner won’t call back. I contacted another chimney sweep who said the work wasn’t done correctly. Meanwhile, I can’t use my chimney.
I want the company to fix the fireplace and the vermiculite insert.

Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement.
