Chimney Cap Repair reviews in Jersey City

    1 Hour Chimney -- AAA Chimney Corp
    AAA Chimney was excellent. Owner inspected chimney, diagnosed problem, and gave me a quote. I agreed and a date for resealing and installation of a chimney cap was set. Workers showed up on schedule and completed the work in approximately three and a half hours. Professionally done--stainless steel resealing, new piping from furnace and hot water heater to meet code, and steel cap.

    Myself and my father has used MJA Contracting for two roofs in our houses in Jersey City. Both times Manuel and his team has taken good care of us and installed good roofs. At first I thought the price was a bit high but after I saw the amount of time, material, and workmanship that they completed I thought the price was very fair. Roofs are alot of work as I learned. What I especially liked about Manuel is he did not go cheap and install a torch down rubber roof. He installed a rubber EPDM roof instead. If you have a flat roof, do yourself a favor and install a rubber EPDM membrane and make sure to contact Manuel. He also rebuilt our chimneys very good as well. Excellent masons! I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

    Excellelntly! The field examiner had the work crew on the job after we realized the need for immediate repair. The crew was wonderful: professional, efficient and kept everything neat and tidy. They made this experience quite easy. I am greatful to them and Angies List. (The discount from the special offer helped)

    Everything went well during this job. The owner (Vick) came out to make his assessment, create the estimate and schedule the job. He was very professional in his examination and explanation of the problem we were facing and how to best resolve it. We were able to see "before" photos at our first meeting and "after" photos when the job was completed (seeing is believing!). We were also happy to apply their discount coupon against the bill.

    After he came out to take a look at the chimney, he said it needed a custom cap for the top. I have three flutes inside the chimney instead of one. The additional cost was almost $400 more. I have just decided to cancel with him.

    Showed up on time.  Seemed like a nice enough guy.  Did a fine job sweeping the fireplace chimney (as far as I know).  Suggested I sweep the oil furnace chimney as well which I had him do.  Price was unexpectedly high since he just doubled the chimney sweep price ($159)  even though he was already at the house and it took no more than 45 minutes to sweep the second chimney.  I don't think that was reasonable but I have nothing to compare to.
    I had asked him to install a damper on the fireplace chimney since there was none installed (just bought the house).  He first quoted $650 to do the job, hardware and labor included.  I told him that it sounded expensive to me and he immediately said he had a "used damper" that size in the shop and would install that for $300.  I did some research online and found that the hardware is about $200 new and from what I could see, an installation without problems shouldn't be more than a couple hours of labor for one person.  That leaves me feeling like he's trying to get one over.  I didn't have time to deal with it myself and $300 was still roughly in line with what I expected the cost to be based on hardware + labor so I told him to go ahead.  Needed it done.
    Apparently, when he was on site for the sweep and had the discussion with me, he never went up on the roof to inspect the chimney so didn't notice that three was some repair needed on the top under the stone cap.  He showed back up to install the damper and noted the damage.  Tried to convince me (briefly) to let him install it anyway, even though it wouldn't have sealed properly.  When i told him to do it right or not at all he said he'd be back to do the repair but I haven't heard from him.  Considering my gut check wasn't great, I'm not going to follow up.  After three interactions, I felt like I had to be on guard about pricing with him.  I'll find another provider to work with in the future.

    Allen Chimneys LLC
    We were told by two contractors that our chimney couldn't be lined because of obstructions. One contractor said that the only way we would be able to line the chimney was by spraying thermocrete and said that it would cost $4,200. Theron Allen inspected our chimney and said that he could line it, that there was only one obstruction that he was confident they could remove it. He also recommended building a lip on our recently reconstructed chimney. He sent us a quote the same day and started work the next. Two of his men came on schedule the next day. They had to make a small hole in the chimney to remove the obstruction, but they repaired it cleanly. They lined the chimney, built in a beautiful lip, and cleaned up after themselves. They were done in two days.

    Ryan & Son Chimneys
    This might have been the best money I ever spent.  Our inspector has been doing home inspections for decades and he recommended Ryan and Sons because they have a long history of good work (I believe that spans two generations) .  In general, unless you know how to install fireplaces and fix chimneys yourself, you are at the mercy of the firm you hire.  If a firm says "Pay me X amount of money to fix y and z" it's impossible to know if you're being scammed until it's too late.  That's why it's important to have a good referral.
           As for my experience, I was under contract for a house in Westfield.  Our inspector found some issues, i.e. some renovations had not been done well, but as far as my wife was concerned there were no dealbreakers  He recommended (and my realtor concurred) that we get a Level II fireplace/chimney inspector.  (Naturally I had never heard of such a thing, but the best description was 'colonoscopy for a chimney." I called Ryan and Sons on a Monday and had an appointment scheduled two days later. 
           The fireplace was advertised as working, but there were many serious problems (not enough depth for a masonry firebox, combustible wall in contact w/ the chimney, the firebox had even been altered with refractory walls meant for a factory firebox and not meant for a masonry firebox, missing mortar joints in the flue tile liner, masonry damage at the top of the chimney.  There were other issues as well that I won't go into.
           The owners' furnace uses the chimney also.  Ryan & Sons found that the lining was deteriorated to the point that it was falling apart.  They even noticed that the connector pipe was too large for the furnace.
            Ryan and Sons gave me the report the same day.  It was detailed and contained plenty of photos.
            So how much money did they want to fix it?   Well, that's the beauty of their honest work.  They didn't provide a cost estimate - they simply concluded that it's not worth it to fix everything.  Their recommendation - take the fireplace and chimney out of service and get a HVAC firm to get a put in a direct venting furnace.  If you are like me, you're always worried about contractors wanting to take as much money from you as possible to fix this, that and the other thing and you have no idea if they are b/s ing you.  Here, they basically said the job can't be done without exorbitant cost so go see an HVAC professional.
           There were other issues with the house and we are no longer under contract.  I am under contract for another house and hired Ryan and Sons yesterday.  It has a similar, old interior fireplace but we knew from the owners it was not functional.  Ryan and Sons checked it out but without needing a full level II (the fireplace flue was sealed and the furnance was a direct venting one).  I got some good recommendations and advice and they did not charge me at all.
           So if you want to buy a house with a fireplace advertised as working, hire Ryan and Sons.  Don't get scammed by less reputable firms.  Like I said, this was the best money I ever spent.

    They were fantastic. And, they were incredibly helpful to our plumbers who were working at the house at the same time. The plumbers needed to know if the flue that vents our furnace was working. The crew kindly went on the roof and checked to make sure the flue was drafting properly.
    Very friendly crew, responsive and professional. Would hire them again!

    American Chimney Service
    Sandy made a mess of our chimney after another's neighbors entire flat roof paper ripped off and smashed our chimney during the storm causing it to come apart at the top, showering our yard with bricks and partially clogging the inside of the chimney with debris.  We made an appointment with American Chimney for 11/25 to have an estimate done.  Their rep, Douglas, showed up right on time, did an inspection and gave us an estimate and we agreed to the price.  The chimney was too old and damaged to repair so we had to have it rebuilt.  The old chimney was torn down the first day of work, and they covered up the hole very nicely for us with a tarp and 2 vent pipes which looked pretty odd, but it worked great since it did rain and nothing leaked.  We had a days lag because it rained all the next day, but the day after they were right back and finished up the job.  In fact, it was finished before I came home from work.
    We have a row house and so before work actually started, they also met with our neighbor with whom we "share" the chimney and they had their side of the chimney relined also.  The masonry part of the chimney we share, the heating units are separate, one in each house.
    The chimney looks great and is working just fine.  All the workers were courteous and professional.  They cleaned up everything, inside and outside.  I have no complaints at all.   The other chimneys in our row are filled with envy!  :)
    We are really happy with the job and our neighbors are also.
