They're prompt, they're efficient at what they do, and they were even nice enough to bring an offer like some extra firewood when they did our chimney repair for us. It was a very positive experience. We had some tuckpoint work that we needed done on the chimney, and we've used them in the past for other things, like cleaning. They're very good at what they do. I would highly recommend them. I would definitely say they're an A+.
I liked their attentiveness and their responsiveness. They did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it, and there were no hidden charges. It was pretty much the kind of transaction that I expect but rarely get. We were selling our house, and we had some water infiltrating in the basement. They said there were two possible sources. So I said, 'Well, can we do them one at a time?' They went out and put in a stainless steel chimney liner, and it turned out to solve the problem entirely. It was wonderful. They didn't add a cap. It was too cold, and it was in the middle of the winter, so they couldn't do concrete. I had used Lindemann Roofing, and I would give the company an A rating.
They were there for a long time, and we just never made a decision yet, they're just really nice. They worked on the inside of our chimney, and tried to determine if we could make a custom line out for it. I would recommend them. They're an A+.
They're efficient. They redid the some of the flashing, they put in one of the exhausts, and they sort of redid my entire chimney that's just for the bedroom. I heard about the company through a friend of mine. The customer service was good; everything was five stars—an A+.
I like them, they did a really great job, and I wouldn't give them any negative feedback. They rebuilt a chimney. I would give them an A+.
They did chimney repair, and we were happy with them. They were prompt, and they were reliable.
We were very happy. They did a good job just as we expected, and we got it. They relined our chimney. The customer service was very good. We would refer them to our friend or neighbor. I would give them an A.
It was kind of a complicated thing to figure out, and I guess they did a good job, because the problem got fixed. We had a furnace where the piping going up out of the roof was all rusted. They had to figure out why it was rusted; it's a stainless steel pipe. I got their name from someone; they were the ones that said the placing was all rusted. I would recommend them to family and friends. As a matter of fact, they're coming out in another month to put in a chimney liner in the other furnace in the house. I would give the company an A rating.
They did everything they said they were going to do. They just did the chimney work. The customer service was good. We would recommend them. We would give them an A.
They did a good job. They tuckpointed the chimney and that's pretty much it. It was just the chimney. They did a fine job.
