Recent Review: I used to have Master Chimney Sweepers for my chimney. But they were very booked up so I called Derek instead, who was able to come in very short notice and did a great job sweeping the chimney and installing a cap. Both Derek and Ronnie were very professional and I am quite satisfied with the experience. Will definitely call them again in the future!
Very bad Sweep chimney. I think he thought no one was home . So he walked into my tenants apt without knocking . He was just snooping. She sent me a text about what happened. I called him twice to hear from him exactly what he was doing .i have not received a call back yet .

I am so impressed and grateful for the prompt response from 5 Star Ventilation. I called with a short notice appointment request to have my chimney cap replaced, and 5 Star Chimney was able to schedule a service call the following morning to my home in Westborough. The cap on my chimney was replaced (during winter conditions no less!) and the certified chimney professional, Jim, also conducted an inspection of my chimney's interior and made recommendations for me to apply to maintain a safe and happy chimney. I genuinely appreciated Jims expertise and will definitely schedule my chimney cleaning in April with 5 Star Ventilation Thank you so very much for assisting me on such short notice and for an amazingly professional and thorough service that was also reasonably priced!!

AGAFFNEY'S CLEANING & CHIMNEY CLEANING
Quick response to initial call, able to arrange an early morning visit. Took a good look around fireplace, furnace, boiler, dryer vents and flues. Offered good advice but was in no way pushy or attempting to find additional work. Cleaned fireplace flue quickly with minimal disruption and no mess. 2 days later came and fitted chimney cap. Gaffney's deserves it's high rating on Angie's List - friendly and professional service.

The chimney sweep went fine but they will try to sell you all types of other things by giving you worst case scenarios. Upon their inspection I had 2 other inspection done one tried to sell me other stuff and luckily the last one was done by a very honest company who did not try to up sell ,they pretty much told me everything was fine and that i didn't need any of the things the other companies were trying to sell. It seems that it's a pretty shady business when it comes to chimneys, i will stick with the good company i found

Cleaned my class A chimney to include: swept/vacuumed, cap swept, stove vacuumed, baffle vacuumed. He told me a small gasket needed to be replaced on the door. Told me where to get it, how much it cost, and how to do it (after he kindly offered to do it for me). Very prompt, professional, and personable. I also felt safe letting him into my home. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I have been a customer of Complete Chimney since 2005 when they rebuilt the chimney and installed a stainless-steel liner for the furnace. I have had them inspect and sweep the liner every year since then to maintain the lifetime warranty of the manufacturer. Today, the crew showed up at early end of appointment range, which has happened more often than not. The work proceeded without a problem and the liner is still in good shape. George, the owner was here today and I mentioned that I was getting the furnace replaced next week. He said to call after that was done and he would come back and inspect the flue and make sure all was OK with that and the liner, at no charge. It is a pleasure to work with a professional and pleasant contractor who takes his work seriously.

They were fine and they did not have to do anything because the chimneys were fine. I would use them again in the future.

It's been very difficult to work with this company. They completed the work on 2/4. Since completion the whole downstairs of my home started smelling like soot. I called AES on 2/7 and scheduled the appointment for 2/11 to fix the issues. They blew the 2/11 appointment off by leaving a voice mail. They said I needed to get a damper and they would be happy to install it for $350. However I never had an issue with my damper or the soot smell until AES completed the work. Therefore I cancelled the $1,660 payment with my credit card company later that same week. I have called AES frequently since that time, many times every other day. All that happens is nobody picks up the phone or if they do, they say a service rep will call me but the rep never calls. At this point I'm getting pretty fed up with AES not responding and the soot smell getting worse. If they think they can fix it I would want them to, otherwise I'm left with no other option but to call someone else. I do not recommend AES to others.

Tim and Jared (sp?) were absolutely EXCELLENT. This without question the most professional, considerate, knowledgeable team I've ever had the pleasure of having work on my house. Not just chimneys. Ever. Tim immediately handed me his card when I opened the door and was very professional, yet friendly and kind, putting me at ease immediately. I'm a working mom and home alone, and I can't tell you how many times I've felt uneasy with workers in my house or on my property when I'm by myself. The complete opposite was true in this case. I immediately felt in great hands professionally and personally. Tim was well-spoken, knowledgeable, patient, answered all my questions, took time to explain what he was doing and why, and gave me his recommendations without any pressure whatsoever. He and Jared performed the work needed quickly and with absolutely zero mess. Tim showed me before and after pictures of exactly what was done, and what to expect in terms of long-term care. Everything looked great! Tim also took the time to give me a wealth of clear, valuable information about my chimney, safety issues to keep in mind now and later, and overall made me feel empowered to take informed care of this part of my house from here on in. I only met Jared briefly, but he was also very friendly and professional. Bottom line: This team and company are clearly truly concerned about quality and customer service first and foremost. They made a customer for life. Treating people well really does make all the difference!
