All went well--the technician, Anthony, was on time, efficient and professional. He asked to check the vent for a second chimney, which vents out the furnace gases, he explained.

The technician arrived late and I needed to follow up with office to make sure I had the right expectation, which I did, and then shortly after he called me to let me know he was on the way. Not really too big a deal since he was about 45 minutes later than his window. My gas fireplace was not lighting properly and the pilot light would go out periodically. At the end of last winter I shut off the...

Very well. Team from Chimney Cricket arrived right on time. Without being asked they used covers for their shoes and put down pads to protect the floor around our fireplace. Since we were interested, they explained what was happening before they did it and kept us informed on their results. Pricing was very fari We will definitely hire Chimney Cricket again.
