Fireplace Repair reviews in Montgomery

    Desired a new fireplace door for an updated look. Decided on a Thermo-Rite trackless glass door with a textured black finish. Purchased door plus installation from Karl Mattes Co. Installers worked quickly and efficiently to remove the old door and install the new one. It looks great!

    After being told our fireplaces needed $8,000 in repairs, we were extremely pleased to learn from Rachel's that only $150 in repairs was all that was needed. Received a follow-up call about our appointment and a call to let us know when they were on their way. Two workers arrived promptly and we were very happy with the time and effort they took to explain every facet of this repair as well as that of our chimney.. Replaced our short-lived silicone sealer with the proper concrete sealer. received an invoice along with before and after pictures. Quite happy with this service.

    After much research, I purchased a Rasmussen gas log set (logs, burner, embers) from Karl Mattes Company. Their price was the best for this particular gas log set. Based on Karl Mattes Company's recommendations, I hired Beresford Plumbing to do the installation and provide the gas valve control (separate review).. Mattes Co. even arranged to deliver the log set to Beresford before they came to my home for the installation.

    Great customer service and good communication! Pretty practical and utilitarian in their approach, so if you are looking for something fancy, you'll need to be specific and ask for it. They cleaned up very well after working and were courteous. Karl, Nancy, and the crew were a pleasure to work with.

    Home was built in 1964. Nice big wood burning fireplace that we had used for years but approximately 10 + years ago we noticed a touch of smoke in the basement when burning a fire. This was shown to be coming in between the rafters and the poured foundation.
    Had a bunch of people out including some of the best well known people in the city. Each would seem puzzled by this and offer to fix it but with 5 different contractors I got 5 different fixes and none would guarantee their work as solving the smoke problem. We opted to use none of them and lived without the fireplace for those 10+ years and figured that would be the end of the story.
    For some reason this past September I thought I would try  to get it fixed 1 final time. I looked here on Angie's list and called the first name at the top with the best reviews; Arco.
    They came out to do a cleaning and an inspection of the entire fireplace with a main focus of figuring out why it was smoking in the basement. A thorough cleaning and inspection showed I had several issues but perhaps most crucial were some cracked flue tiles along with some gapping mortar areas. The solution they devised wasn't cheap but they were confident that they had the fix which also came with a long term warranty on the work and products used. Obviously they won the bid.
    Oh, and btw? if I had used any of the other bids from the "experts" of years past I still would have had the problem because not one of them even took the time to look up the flue much less inspect it. Hmmm, I now wonder why not. Gary of Arco did however and we are glad of it.
    The happy ending is they showed up on time, did the work well, were pleasant  and we now have a fireplace that is back in use. Burns well and smoke goes where it should; up and out with none in the basement.
    Thank you Arco/Gary and Nick. That family room was made whole again because there is just something about a fire.

    Very professional and trustworthy. I will definitely use him again. He did not try any aggressive sales tactics or unnecessary upgrades. Was informative. Close attention to safety and performance with our fireplace units.

    He was punctual, and he did the work quickly. He discussed details of what he did and wrote a report on his work and the condition of my fireplace. He covered the work area and left no mess at all.

    It went very well.  The technician was very professional and thorough.  The site was left clean as a pin.

    Some maintenance recommendations were made and put in writing with a quote.

    Karl Mattes Co. cleaned my chimney.  They also advised me about potential issues with the configuration of the fireplace and venting of heat and smoke as well as ways to avoid chimney fires (primarily, don't burn paper in your fireplace).  He also counseled us on the value of a fireplace insert as an alternative to a furnace for heating.

    Fred is wonderful! Answered phone message promptly, came out the next day. Is personable and also very professional. Turns out my fireplace was fine, I just didn't understand how the damper opened and closed! He only charged me a small fee for the trip out and answered all my questions so I understood how the thing works.
