Review by
09/01/2016

“They had time to take us the next day. It was good. They were quick, and they were on time, so it was good. We haven't tested the chimney yet, so we don't know if it's functionally worked out for us. I guess I'm a little stickler, I don't give out A's, so I'd say they get a B. Again, I don't know the quality of work because I haven't tested it. The customer service was good.”

Review by
09/01/2016

“I think that they were a little overpriced. They charged a lot for half day's work. Overall, my experience was neutral. They spent like two hours, and they charged me almost over a thousand dollars. I couldn't see the work that they did. I guess they get a C. Their customer service was okay. They were on time. It was clean.”

Review by
09/01/2016

“Every time that I have used their services, they have showed up on time and did a thorough job while keeping the areas around the chimneys very clean. We have a few non-standard joints in our system which makes it even important to have a knowledgeable, qualified chimney sweep.”

Review by
09/01/2016

“They knew what they were doing. They were very courteous. And there was no messing around. They were very business-like. They did their job, and they did what they were supposed to do. I would give them an A. Their customer service was very good—excellent.”

Review by
09/01/2016

“The work, as far as we know, was done accurately. They were very upfront. They took pictures. They showed us pictures down the chimney on the iPad. They were very thorough. He got up on the roof and took pictures, and then he would bring them down and show us. So it's not like they were yanking our chain when they told us we had deterioration. I’ll give them an A. There was no dust left, and they pretty much blasted our chimney inside our house and rebuilt it.”

Review by
09/01/2016

“My experience was definitely positive. They were responsive, in terms of setting the appointment. I thought the work they did was good, and the person who did the work was personable and seemed like a good guy. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/01/2016

“They did give me an estimate of some work that needs to be done, and I will contact them. They cleaned the chimney, and then they inspected it. I have no complaints, and I'd be likely to recommend them to a friend.”

Review by

Review by

Review by
03/22/2016

“They've been back here to do more work for us. They’re friendly, efficient and they do a good job. They put a new steel liner in both of our chimney things. I would absolutely recommend the company. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I wasn’t actually there for the service, but they did follow up with me quite a few times. Everything seemed to go well. They gave me some recommendations. I did plan on calling them soon to get another sweeping to see what kind of damage the burn season did this year. We just bought a house, so they swept the chimney and inspected it for us. If a friend or neighbor asked about the company, I would absolutely recommend them. They’re an A-grade company to me.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I think when they came I wasn't home so I cannot give detailed information but I would say overall it's OK and I just contact them and they respond pretty fast and they come by the following business day in the morning and I didn't have anyone home and they were able to get in and get the job done. I didn't meet the person myself and we were communicating through phone and email but the whole process to me was convenient. I would recommend them.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I would use them again. In fact, I’ve had them come back and clean the chimney since they did the original work. I highly recommend them. I found the company when I was looking for a company that would install an insert into my existing fireplace that is fairly elaborate. They are one of the only two masons in Massachusetts that could do this and put it in just as I wanted. That’s how I found them, and they did a great job. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“He did a bunch of sweeping. They were very good. They were able to get out right away. I was in a bind so they were able to kind of, I don't know what they do with their schedule but they were able to fit me in in a time frame that worked. I actually saw one of their trucks in North Redding where I think they park it so I had just driven by one of their trucks. I would have given them an A, I was very happy with them.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“The guy was pretty straight up and honest with me about what I needed and the different options for it. They were really quick and they cleaned up after themselves pretty well. They did a cleaning and inspection. I would recommend them to friends and neighbors. I will give them an A- because the work that they said needed to be done was really expensive. If I had to leave price out of it I would give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I liked the fact that he worked cleanly. Obviously, if you’re working with a stove and the ashes and everything else, the environment could get really bad if somebody didn’t know what they were doing. This gentleman knew exactly what he was doing. When you’re working around white rugs and things like that, you have to be especially careful, and he did fine. I would recommend this company. They get an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I liked that they were up on my roof and that they took pictures and showed me what the problem was. They didn’t just come down and tell me I needed to do this or that. They had the pictures there. Somebody referred me to this company. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

Review by
03/22/2016

“They just did the job that was asked. They did a cleaning and inspection. If a friend or neighbor asked about the company I would recommend them. I’d give them a B because I wasn’t even there when they did the work so I did not interact with them at all.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They went about their business, explained what they were doing, it all made sense and they were in and out in a brief period of time. They were very clean. They were cleaning a wood fireplace chimney flue. I would recommend them. I would give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They were very professional. They brought forward a problem we didn’t know we had. They showed us the problem and we hired them to fix it. I would absolutely recommend them because they run their business like I run mine. They’re an A-rated company.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I was hard-pressed to get someone to clean the chimney. They said they would do it from the bottom up, and they could take pictures of the chimney to see that it was clean from within. I have already recommended them. The company gets an A from me.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They put our liner in. They did an excellent job and everything was fine. They were on time. They said they were coming at a certain time and a certain date and they showed up. They did their work, they cleaned up and they left. They're a B+.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They were on time, they did a good job, they told me what they were doing, they cleaned up after themselves of course, that's about it really I guess. They're actually a local company to my town. I would recommend them. I'll give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“Sweepnman was the best. They were great, and I’m going to get them to come back and do some more stuff. The guy was nice and did a good job. He checked our chimneys because we’d just moved here, and we had a wood insert that had issues—A+.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“It was professional. Everything stayed clean and they cleaned up afterward. They gave us recommendations, and they were good at answering questions. They were just cleaning out the fireplace. I would recommend and give this company an A+.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I liked their cleanliness. The kid was very outspoken as far as what has to be done and when it should be done. I really enjoyed it. It was the first time I had it done. He just cleaned my chimney. He went right in there and cleaned it. I would say their service was excellent.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I wasn’t here for the job because my wife called them and she didn’t say anything negative. She said they did a good job. I think they were just doing a cleaning of the chimney. If a friend or neighbor asked about the company I would recommend them. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They showed up, did what they needed to do and the price was reasonable. They were cleaning my pellet stove. I have recommended them. I guess I would give them a B. The door on my pellet stove was missing something or it wasn't closing properly after they finished.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They came when we put in the fireplace. They were fine. In reality I don’t know how good a job they did but they seemed professional and they were very nice and courteous. They put in some piping so we could run a gas fireplace. I’d give them an A. They were fine.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They were efficient. They cleaned my chimney. I’m not certain if I would recommend them to friends or neighbors. One of the people told me that he took a picture of all of my fireplaces and he had not asked. I felt that was a little offensive. I’d give them a B-.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“Sweepnman was fabulous. I made an appointment. They cleaned up, and everything was done. I didn’t even know they were there. I needed a liner, and the crown on the outside of my chimney needed to be fixed. I would give them an A. Their workmanship was excellent.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“Actually, they were only here for a couple of minutes. They were clean, and they didn’t do work they didn’t need to do. They had to clean our chimney because we’re having something put in. They are all done. I would recommend them. The company gets an A from me.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“Sweepnman was awesome. They were thorough, and they also went over everything with me to see what I needed to have done and what I didn’t. I trusted what he said because he showed me everything. I would recommend the company, and I’d give them a perfect score.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“It was a small job and they did a good job. I have no complaints. They just seemed to know what they were doing. They were professional and personable. They came and did the work and they left. I just had a cleanout. I would recommend them. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“I would say it was average, but they were supposed to come back and do some work, and they have yet to do so. I didn't like the fact that they didn't come back to do the work. They were supposed to come back and put a chimney cap on my chimney. I would say C.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They were great. They were very polite and very clean. They did a great job. We had a few problems and they fixed it. They're very reasonably priced. We just moved into the home and so they did a complete cleaning and made sure everything worked properly. I would absolutely recommend the company. I would give them an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They were excellent. I recommend them. They were the best, and they came down to do my work. I got a bit of a cheaper price for the ductwork that they had to put in because it was a little too expensive. But after that, they worked with me and all that. It was great. I recommend them to anybody. I’d grade them as an A.”

Review by
03/22/2016

“They were attentive and very thorough. They paid attention to details, and they were professional. They were just checking the chimney to make sure that it was ready for the winter. They cleaned it while they were doing that. If a friend or neighbor asked about the company, I would recommend them. They get an A.”
