Winston's Chimney Service installed a new duct to reduce the risk of a fire within an old 1950s chimney that was breaking down. They had great expertise and carried out the work with precision, quality, punctuality, and cleanliness. I would recommend this company to others.
Winston's Chimney Service is an excellent company and very customer driven. After relining our chimney, we continued to have issues with smoke entering the house due to a downdraft. They came out multiple times to work on the issue with no complaints and in a timely fashion. I highly recommend them for any work they perform.
The technician was very informative about the work to be performed, and his explanation of what was to be done was excellent. I highly recommend Winston's Chimney Service—A+.
Professional, knowledgeable. Felt no pressure as we have from other vendors.
Very knowledgeable service rep who performed the needed repairs and maintenance without trying to sell you the extras.
Awesome service: arrived promptly, went beyond the scope of work, repaired, installed and cleaned up. The best home project ever.
Very friendly and knowledgeable technician.
Fantastic service in all areas.
Cleaned and relined the inside of the chimney.
I had a minor problem with the work and they responded immediately and fixed it. I was very pleased with the service.
