Baltimore Chimney Sweeps Reviews
The worker told me that the prior chimney sweep did not properly secure the liner that was installed.
In addition to cleaning the one chimney I had hired them to do, they also inspected my other chimneys and gave me an evaluation of what they found and recommendations to remedy the situations. Photos were taken to help me see just what they were talking about ... most helpful.
Overall it was a good experience. Now I am confident that I'll be able to use my fireplace for the winter without any problems.
The only negative was the vacuum used to clean the chimney did not contain the ashes well enough, so the entire first floor was filled with dusty ashes which left a light ash film on everything in the living room and dining room ... not so bad for the wood, but it would have been nice to have had my upholstered furniture covered. I would recommend covering all furniture before having one's chimney swept in the future.
It was explained to me that the the vacuum bag was recently replaced, so they were not sure why it happened.
They did offer to give me a free cleaning of my second fireplace for any inconvenience.
The tuckpointing they did was good, grinded out every joint we had agreed to in the scope of work (was only the upper 1/2 of the chimney). They left the brick face clean. They could have spent a little more time tooling the joints but I think it's nit picking considering they were about half the cost of every other estimate I got.
The crown itself seems to be solid, a nice white with
The only point of the job I am somewhat displeased with is the "cricket" flashing they installed. The chimney only had flush flashing and I wanted a cricket to help divert rain water and snow away from the backside of the chimney. It appears they took aluminum coil and just kind of made an open topped triangle then siliconed it to the shingles. It looks pretty flimsy and I doubt it will do anything to divert any moisture. I'll probably end up having a roofer redo it. Again, though, for the price I can't complain too much.
The inspection revealed a decent amount of work which will need to be completed in order to bring the chimney up to par.
All in all, this was a very positive experience and I plan on using Capital Chimneys again in the near future to complete the required repair work.
