Recent Review: George was/is spectacular. Got a confirmation call the day before, and as scheduled, he was promptly knocking on the door at 9:30am. First thing he did was put down a towel at the door's entrance, then proceeded to seal the entire fieplace opening with sheets. I told him this was my first experience with a fireplace, and in this particular home, the previous owner had installed a wood stove in the hearth opening. George inspected the connection between the stove and the flue and reported everything looked to be in perfect shape. He pointed out that with most wood stoves he inspects, 9 out of 10 those connections between are wrong. He then went outside and climbed on the roof to inspected the cap and clean the chimney. When he returned he told me the cap was in good shape, but the bricks around the chimney needed to be pressured cleaned and sealed with a masonry sealer. He then came inside and patiently explained how my particular wood stove worked and the best ways for me to get the most out of it. In conversation, we discovered we had both worked for the same company in Miami, and chatted for a bit over some Cuban coffee I had made. Overall, his knowledge, demeanor, and work style helped calm all of my concerns about using the fireplace in the future. I would recommend him wthout ANY reservations. (In fact my next door neighbor will be using him soon).
