Recent Review: I was very pleased with their work and they were ranked very high on Angie's List. They did very good work, we did not have any problems and they did everything we wanted. We are very happy with the fireplace and they were very conscientious and competent. They did the job in less time than they predicted and really knew what they were doing. I will use them again in the future.
Recent Review: Needed new fireplace door/screen to match redecorated living room. We saw a screen we liked at another fireplace shop in Carmel but they told us it could not be made with bi-fold doors. Barbara at Leland's correctly told us that it could be ordered with bi-fold doors and quoted a better price. She braved the snow to visit our home with color samples and catalogs, and she accurately measured the fireplace. Her installer, Dorman Davis, arrived on time and did a great job installing the new doors. The wire mesh inside screen was too long, but Dorman said he would prefer to cut it to the correct length himself rather than order a new one from the manufacturer. Even though this might take him four hours, he is not charging any additional for that. We are very pleased.
Business Description: While there are many materials available for use as countertops, there are none that compare to the natural beauty and practicality of granite. Granite counter tops will give a greater return on investment than just about anything you can do to your house. Carpet, paint, wood-work, appliances, hardwood floors, etc. will all show the effects of time and wear. Granite countertops will maintain their beauty year after year.
Granite doesn't wear, scratch, or suffer the effects of UV rays, heat or cold like man made counter top materials will. Granite tops will look as good in ten, twenty, thirty or forty years as they do the day they're installed.
Recent Review: Amazing experience. We cannot say enough about this company. Gary, Storm and his team did an excellent job. In a time when finding reliable, experienced repairmen are hard to find, they are a welcome change. From the estimate to the repair of my chimney and clean up, everything was done as expected. They were professional and left the work area neat and clean. They tore down the top 35 courses of the chimney and rebuilt it The fireplace looks great. Thank you for a great job.
Recent Review: Very impressed. This was our second opinion. Chris found the same issues found in our first inspection (we hadn't told him that we had a inspection already). We felt the inspection was thorough. Chris took photos of the problems and went over all issues with us. He then offered various fix options. He went out to his truck and worked up an estimate, came back in and explained the estimates and for the various options. Since this is their busy time, we asked if they would offer a better price during their less busy time of year and the answer was yes. Chris had a cancellation earlier in the day and called to see if we were available for him to come early . We were. When he arrived he immediately put on protective shoes covers before entering our home (we very much appreciated). He was pleasant, professional and informative.
Recent Review: John, James and Zach did an amazing job installing a Napolean direct vent gas fireplace into my existing fireplace. My house was built in 1921 so this enabled me to have a working fireplace without having to restore my firebox and smoke chamber walls. Their professionalism and workmanship was excellent. I wanted a riser added to gain a little height to the fireplace and they worked hard to make sure it was perfectly level. I would highly recommend Ely Stokes for a direct vent fireplace installation.
Godby Hearth & Home have an excellent selection of fireplaces, mantels, fireplace doors and all fireplace accessories, the best in the City we felt. Their showroom is impressive and they maintain books of pictures showing varieties of fireplaces. They were helpful and understood completely when we backed off additional fireplace remodel work, after discovering this type of work is relatively expensive; we were considering a more extensive remodel, but for now decided to stay with new fireplace doors only. It did take two separate visits to get the measurements right and we wish the fireplace door samples available (colors, materials) had been larger to make our decision with, but overall we are very satisfied with the end result. We hope to replace the mantel next year and will feel comfortable dealing with Godby again.

Replaced leaking chimney cap, chinked missing mortar on chimney, replaced rotted siding on back of chimney, replaced rotted decking and joists under the firebox, upgraded wood firebox to gas including installing gas line for the firebox and kitchen stove and finally removed old tile facing to fireplace and replaced it with granite. The quote was comprehensive and the detail convinced me that his company would provide superior execution versus two competitors whose bids were respectively higher and lower. This was a job that involved multiple trades (plumbing, chimney, tile/granite, structural framing, finish carpentry and drywall) so a competent G.C. was a must and Kurt delivered on that. The sequencing and execution of the job met promise dates. The one dim spot was the granite subcontractor who was a bit difficult to work with but Kurt immediately intervened when needed including showing up at my house within 30 minutes of calling him during the install to make sure it was executed correctly; on his day off no less. The final quality of the job was top notch. The exterior siding was thicker and better sealed than the original, the masonry was in better shape than when it was originally constructed and finally the fireplace looks clean and modern. I would definitely hire Workman Services again.

We did purchase a new fireplace screen. Technician came out and made a template of the opening. The actual screen fit perfectly.

They did a great job. This was an old fireplace mantel that had 3 different pieces. They first came out to assess the job and gave me a quote and scheduled me for the following week. The gentleman that showed up to do the work made sure that I was happy with the job and even caulked part of the mantel and made sure and cleaned up the mess he had made.

I contacted Godby Hearth and Home to purchse a new fireplace insert. My old insert was not reliable and therefore I had not used it in several years. I have an underground propane tank in my back yard. I first searched Angie's List, found the company and gave them a call. The person who responded was quite helpful, asked appropriate questions, and advised me to come to the showroom and see the inserts for myself. I did so and went with a modern lookkiing ventless model. If I hadn't gone to the showroom I'm not sure I would have known that such a choice was available. The company also honored the Angie's List discount. I placed the order on Jan 16 and the insert was installed Jan 30. However, gas wasn't getting to the insert. The tech waited while I called the propane company, talked to a man from the company, tried a few different things but the result was the propane company rep need to come out (the problem was a faulty regulator). Once gas was getting the the insert a rep from Godbys calledme to walk me through the prcess of igniting the insert (this was at 6pm so he would be sure I was home and in front of the insert). Unfortunately I had a little difficuty following his directions and he immediately offered to send the tech out on a day and Time convenient to me to show me how the system operated. The tech came out yesterday, walked me through the process and I'm now good to go.

THEY WERE UNABLE TO INSTALL NEW FIREPLACE DOORS. THEY DID NOT INSPIRE CONFIDENCE ON THEIR ABILITIES. THE INSTALLER WAS VERY POLITE AND PERSONABLE, BUT THE WORK WAS NOT SATISFACTORY.
