Recent Review: They took a while to come out and do the work. First appointment was in December and no one showed or called. Second appointment for inspection was in January. Then they said they would come out to do the work and it took them another 3 weeks. In that time they were also looking for a new fireplace screen for us. Could not find what we needed so came out and sealed the chimney as requested. They came in and did the work and we felt did an honest job.

We bought a gas vent free fireplace from Dixie Products and one of their contractors installed the fireplace; the contractor's work was about a B.

We gave Mark a picture of the desired mantle and he took it from there. The finished product is beautiful. He was punctual and left the area very clean.

They did very good work, but the crew was somewhat surly (shouting at each other, with a good deal of profanity). They were fair about cleaning up after themselves.

These birds perch on something vertical. They don't perch on trees. They are called Chimney Swift birds. We can not remove these birds. They said it is very important to have your chimney fumigated once they leave as it can become toxic and they should migrate back with the month. They could not do anything because of the birds. They saw the birds and they could tell from their chirping and their wings.

We are currently having an issue with the logs cutting in and out, and I am having a little trouble getting the service men out. They did come when they said they were going to and were punctual with the initial visit.

Essentialy he sat down and simply showed me how to do it properly. But since every time one comes out they will charge close to $100, my service person suggested to do a service (which was nice to suggest) and changed a switch. I was very happy with the service provided and found him to be very competent and reliable. I will stay with Dixie. Thank you!

A little forgetful after speaking with him a few times regarding the job. Once we got in contact, came to the house quickly and removed the brick without any damage to the surrounding areas while I was gone on vacation. No complaints with the work done.

I was told by Roger, the owner, that he would come between 4:30 and 5:00 pm on Thursday the 20th. He showed up about an hour earlier than he was supposed to without even bothering to call and check if that was ok. He looked at the job and wasn't able to answer all of my questions clearly. In fact when I asked about the need to shore up in the crawl space to make up for the increased weight I got a question in response quizzing me on how heavy a refrigerator is and that it doesn't need extra support because the brick and stone would certainly be no heavier than the average refrigerator. Somehow I seriously doubt that. Never mind that earlier we had looked at the and quot;stoneand quot; front that is in place now and there was question on his part as to whether it was real or hollow. When I asked about the weight issue he contradicted himself by assuring me that what was already in place was real stone. I know that the firebox isn't real. It is plain to see. It is a thin pre-fab unit with sheet metal behind it. I don't appreciate someone getting cute with me by asking me a question in response to a question. He also indicated that he is a and quot;scavengerand quot; and prefers to reuse items. Not what I expect someone being asked to pay $5000 out to be pleased to hear from a supposed professional. I asked about the safety and workmanship of the metal pipe installation that goes through the attic and he wasn't able to look because he didn't even have a ladder with him. How is he supposed to evaluate a fireplace job with roof considerations without one? Suffice it to say he simply BS'd by stating that surely it couldn't have been built without meeting code, completely ignoring the fact that I informed him that the company that built this home had done all sorts of things that weren't up to code and I knew for a fact that the inspector never looked in that space. I was not impressed but we continued to speak on a friendly basis including small talk on other subjects. The upshot was that he would have to think about it and get back to me. Today, somewhere after 1 pm, he TEXTED me stating that after he and quot;thought and prayed about your project, rebuilding your fireplace in your home...I don't think it is a project that I want to get involved with. I'm Sorryand quot;. I responded the gist that texting me was not only impersonal but unprofessional and that perhaps he should pray on that. I would no more have someone like this, who hedged around things, avoided questions he obviously didn't have the knowledge for and was unprofessional as he was, work on ANYTHING (including the walkway job he tried to procure while he was here), than I would fly to the moon. Additionally, I found his estimated price that was discussed the day he was here to be totally outrageous, especially considering that he was planning to use the existing chimney pipe and not shore it up underneath the house. All this would have involved was pulling of the front facing and building a new and bigger firebox by hand and putting up a decorative stone front. I wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy. Well, maybe my worst, but even that might be considered pushing it.

ABlack Goose Chimney Sweep Inc
After moving to the area in October 2012, into a house with gas logs in the fireplace and a gas stove ( both inoperable) in the basement, I was looking for a chimney sweep to inspect the flues and tell me if I could install a wood stove in the basement. I found Black Goose Chimney Sweep on the internet and it was clear from John Briscoe's web site http://www.blackgoose.net/ that he was a certified chimney sweep and someone who was going to provide knowledgeable advice and safe, thorough services. On his first visit he swept and inspected both flues, he determined that the flue to the basement could be used for a wood stove. He advised on a wood stove based on our room/home size and intended use of the stove. Since the flue was located in a sheetrock wall, he let us know that we needed a zero clearance thimble for safe installation. After thinking about it a few days we ordered a Hampton H200 stove from John. He ordered the parts and stove, installed all on 21 December and our house is now much warmer and cozier feeling than what we get with our primary heat pump heating system. He did an excellent job of installing and his crew put on our new chimney cap to prevent any breakdown in the mortar on the top of the chimney. Highly recommend Black Goose for chimney, fireplace, and wood stove or insert services.
