We used Mad Hatter, and we actually took our fireplace from a gas-starter wood-burning one to a gas fireplace and then put a new cap on the top. They also did a video inspection and replaced the back of the inside of our fireplace. Everything was perfect.
They did the work, and we were very pleased. They seemed to be very knowledgeable. They were very polite and did what they came to do. They did chimney cleaning. It was the first time we'd ever had our chimneys done, but I would say they would get an A.
My experience with Mad Hatter was very good. They did a clean-out of our gas logs and the chimney. I'd give them an A+.
Excellent—it was great. He made everything great. He got the iPad and the camera, and he checked the chimney and everything. I would recommend them. I'd grade them an A+.
They had come and done a couple of works orders for us. They did a great job. They found something wrong on the chimney, and they had to build a rain cover. Whatever covers the chimney was all rusted through. They put a new one on. They came back a week or two later and installed it. They cleaned the chimney. Everything went without a hitch. They were very polite and on time. I'd give them an A+.
We had the chimney cleaned last spring. We got their name out of the Best Pick Reports. It was Mad Hatter. They were great—I would give them an A. We didn't have any problems. They showed us the stuff and explained stuff. We had an odor, and we finally figured out what it was.
They came and cleaned the chimney. It was OK. They did what I expected them to do. They showed me the chimney was clean and left. They're an A.
They do a good job, they tell you what they're going to do, and they're reliable. I got their name from Best Pick Reports. They did the chimney cap. I would recommend them. I don't think I had any issues with the work. I'd rate them as an A.
They were great—real good. They were efficient and courteous, and they did a good job. They did an estimate and a chimney sweep. I'd give them an A.
They just did a general inspection of two of our chimneys and cleaned them. The gentleman who came was really nice and very efficient. He got things done before the company had said he would; he got done early. They'd get an A.
