Excellent work by Fernando. We called for chimney cleaning and he advised us that we should add a stainless steel flue liner for our gas furnace in our masonry chimney . We looked at csia.org noted that Fernando is highly qualified. After some research and conversation elsewhere, installing a flue liner seemed like a sound proposal, so we had Fernando install one. The price was fair (including a c...

The appointment for doing a chimney sweep service resulted in a No Go as there was too much "wrong" with the fireplaces, flues and chimneys in general. An over the "top" HIGH estimate was generated which was not done as a courtesy (free) but explained away as an inspection charge.

Sweeping of two (2) chimney flues.

Mr. [Member Name Removed] I apologize that we had to be the bearer of bad news regarding your chimney. Sincerely, it is not pleasant to do. We were not going to add insult to injury by charging you to sweep a chimney that needs to be repaired before it can be used. Sweeping it would have been a waste of money. As it was explained during the phone call where you booked the appointment, if it does n...

Ryan, the salesperson was great. He was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. After the initial service call, it didn't appear that the entire job had been done, so I contacted Ryan and he had the service technician Daniel return to complete it. He repaired the chimney just fine, but the raking on the shoulder was not done very neatly. Winston's sent out another technician and now it all looks...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Crown reconstruction, brick chimney rebuild for the top row of bricks - owing to the deterioration of the crown which caused water penetration in the bricks, a stainless steel cap, and mortar and raking on the chimney shoulder. It was the problem on the shoulder (backside) where there were gaps where the mortar had separated from the bricks, that I initially contacted Winston's.
