"We needed our fireplace cleaned. At first, came to the house on time, was courteous and polite and cleaned the fireplace. However, the flame" was no more than what appeared as red . I called Bill and he offered to come over that day (which we couldn't do). Bill came around and cleaned out one part that had overlooked. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our fireplace has NEVER looked this good. We are extremely pleased. If I could, I would give them an A+.

"Abracadabra did a fantastic job! They take pride in their work and it shows! We have a resort like backyard that all of our friends want to hang out in! Abracadabra" pays attention to all of the details and makes sure the job is done right. They think of everything and go the extra mile to make it perfect. We will definitely use them again and have recommended them to all of our friends.

Fireplaces

Most people enjoy sitting in front of a fire on a cold day, but traditional, wood-burning fireplaces come with a few disadvantages. They tend to waste energy, require maintenance and pose some risk. Read this guide to discover several alternatives that provide the same ambience, but with fewer downsides.

Consider the pros and cons of installing an electric fireplace in your home.

An electric fireplace can give you that warm glow without a chimney or fireplace maintenance.

Are you ready to heat things up in your home by installing a fireplace?

The fireplace is often the centerpiece of the living and family rooms, but highly rated companies on Angie's List say a standard wood-burning fireplace loses most heat through the chimney.

He hasn't legally abandoned the job as long as he is still showing up and doing something, even if it is very little, from time to time.  You'll have to fire him first.  Have documentation that the job is not being done in a timely manner, showing when he has and has not worked.  Be ready for a fight and probably a legal battle since he will likely still want more money or won't refund money paid for incomplete work.

 

Change the locks and inform the contractor their services on your property are terminated.  Tell him if anyone representing his company enters your property they will be considered trespassing and will be prosecuted.  Then hire another company to check the work he has done to make sure it is right.  Somehow I doubt it is given the nature of his work ethic.  Then have the new contractor repair any bad workmanship and finish the job.  Keep records as any documented things that have to be redone will help your case against the first contractor.

I would recommend finding a good hearth retailer in your area and work with them to select a stove that is right for your home. They should also be able to arrange for certified installer to handle the installation. Keep in mind many areas require a city or county permit for the installation, and it may be wise to have the chimney and fireplace inspected by a certified chimney sweep beforehand.

He was mainly there to sell us $2000 worth of equipment. We bought a deal and he didn't do anything he was supposed to do. While my husband was on the phone he SP slammed the door and left. He shouldn't have been offering a BD if you don't plan to do any of the work.

Installation went fine. In fact, took less than 15 minutes. The Skytech Model 1001-A is a basic on/off receiver with a remote.
Installation consisted of replacing 2 wires to the gas valve. YouTube shows 2 preschool children completing the exact same job
in about 10 minutes.
Skytech Model 1001-A Available in Amazon New for $70.00 ...More for both the remote and receiver.
Quality of the product seems to be ok. Just a basic entry level on/off switch
Labor Charge is $185.00 ( for the first 60 minutes)..
Parts Cost: $150.00 Remote w/basic on/off receiver
Tax $ 23.45
--------------
Total Charge $358.45
These charge are a disgrace.

I've got a very good price in the store and the guys came out to inspect the fireplace if the insert going to fit or not. It was told that it will not be a straight away job, and the masonry needs to be modified so the liner can be connected. After 5 weeks waiting finally I called the town to ask if the permit was ready, because I did not hear ...More anything from the contractor. The permit was ready and I finally was able to schedule the install. That appointment was cancelled a day before on the evening. Of course we made arrangements to be able to be home, and the canceling a night before was very disappointing. The install was re-scheduled and a gentleman came out with his son, and in 2 minutes he determined that the the fireplace needs masonry work and he told me that he is not qualified to do such work. After calling the store, he told me that I should call a chimney professional to make the work so he can slide the insert into place and connect it to the chimney liner. Basically these people wasted 6 weeks of my time and failed t o do what their main line of business is. It is joke!

We recently had had a gas fireplace and furnace serviced by . The tech, , arrived on time and was very friendly. He made a point to ensure we knew exactly what work was being done and to answer all of our questions. He was very knowledgeable and most importantly genuinely honest. The fireplace looks great ...More and I have confidence everything is working well. Highly recommended.

Went super well. I was lucky to get an appointment. They came right on time and was done in less than an hour. They went above and beyond with retouching the paint along with giving us advice to prevent another service call.

Why an F? F for Failed communication; I spent more than 5K at that store and the sales guy would not talk to me after the sale was completed? I tried 3 times to get an additional quote for a fireplace hood and DID NOT GET IT. Beware!. I wanted a hood because he overestimated the power of my unit and advised that using ...More it full power would burn my house down. Great! I bought a BMW but should use it as beetle (bVW). Even with an adapter that was provided I felt the need for a hood because of the excessive heat above the fireplace. Just wanted peace of mind. As mentioned, they installed an adaptor to reduce the gas flow. First call, he told me he would use my wife`s email (on file) to send the information; Second call, I left my number with the secretary and he did not call me back. No information or quote received. Third call, again I was informed the sales guy was busy. I demanded for attention. I said” I spent a lot of money with Matchless and I need attention”. A lady told me he would send the information that afternoon. I am still waiting. Now it is too late, I do not want to talk to them anymore. Now I am interested in understanding why Matchless does not want to talk me. Is there a problem with the project/equipment that was sold to me? I will find out, not happy now.

Called to schedule an appointment and left message. Call was immediately returned and appointment was scheduled for 7:00 PM the next day. On the appointment day got notified I could be moved up to 5:00 PM so I was delighted. arrived on time and started to work his magic. He voluntarily slipped off ...More his shoes upon entering the house and I showed him to the fireplace. I explained that the vented gas fireplace was cutting off periodically and the remote control to it wasn't working. layed down a drop cloth and went to work breaking down the fireplace logs and embers. He vacuumed everything out, cleaned all parts and replaced the thermopile. He put everything back together, clicked on the remote, and everything stared working again. was pleasant, professional and extremely knowledgeable about his job. I am so happy I found this company and will definitely be using them again.
