“Their report was fantastic, their examination was great, and their presentation was terrific. They really did help us—they offered us some very helpful hints. They were absolutely excellent and especially punctual. Excellent across the board.”

“Chimney & Wildlife Specialists redid my fireplace. My experience was absolutely positive. The technician was awesome—very polite, clean, and professional—and he did an excellent job.”

“They were very professional. They showed up on time and answered all of the questions, and I thought they did a great job. They cleaned and tested the chimney to make sure it was safe and OK to use. I'd give them an A; they were very good.”

“Chimney & Wildlife Specialists did a good job. The guy was very nice, and he did an excellent job. He worked on my chimney, and everything is working fine now. They are wonderful—A.”

“I had my chimney cleaned. He did fine. I'd give them an A for excellent. He did a good job and went above and beyond. He measured the fire pit for me which he didn't have to do, because I talked to him about getting electric logs. So he measured to see what would fit in.”

“I had a very positive experience with them. We had some birds nesting in the chimney of our home, and they took care of it. Everything went well. I had them do the chimney sweep as they finished removing the birds. I'd give them overall an A.”

“The person who did our work was really personable. We felt very comfortable working with him, like he was being honest with us. They did a good job. We had them put a new cap on our chimney, reseal it, and then they coated the bricks. I'd give them an A. I have no complaints.”

“They came in and cleaned out my chimney. It was a very positive experience. They were in there, out of there, and the problem was solved. They deserve an A.”

“It was very good. He replaced the chimney cap. I'd grade them as an A.”

“They were very friendly, helpful, and informative. They were cleaning out my chimney. It was A work.”

“He explained everything that he did. When he gave me a quote for what he'd done, he explained why. He was very helpful, friendly, and professional. They did chimney cleaning and an inspection because my fireplace—when it rains there's water that comes in. So they gave me a quote, and when he went up he took pictures to show me. I have recommended them.”

“I had a great experience. They were prompt and courteous, and they did the job as promised; no problems. They had to clean the chimney, and they repaired the outside chimney cap as well. They deserve an A.”

“They repaired my chimney. They did really good work, and they cleaned up after themselves. I thought they did a great job. I'd give them an A grade, and I already have recommended them.”

“To begin with, I didn't have to be at the house when they did the work. He was sending photos and text messaging me, so that was really good. My chimney was leaking so they had to fix around it. They patched part of the roof and they replaced the metal part that goes on the very outside of it. I'd give them an A.”

“They did the chimney. They cleaned it out, did a chimney sweep, and replaced the top. They earned an A.”

“Their work was very good.”

“It was excellent. They worked very efficiently, and they were on time whenever they were supposed to be here. They did a chimney sweep and also painted the exterior of the house. They cleaned the chimney, replaced the outside roof portions of the chimney, reframed it, put Hardie board around it, and redid the exterior of the chimney on the roof.”

“The experience was excellent. Something was getting into my chimney, a little wasp or something, and the chimney is hollow, so it was making a big noise.”

“He was very thorough and explained everything he did. They cleaned the chimney and inspected our wood burning fireplace. They're an A+.”

“They did exactly what they were supposed to. They sealed some of the places.”

“It was great. They were very efficient and made sure my fireplaces were safely working.”

“He did a good job, and I haven't had any problems. He went up on the roof and sealed around the fireplace and chimney.”

“It was positive. I'd give them an A.”

“In general, my experience was good. I'd grade them an A.”

“They were on time and very informative. When they came to do the chimney cleaning, they were very thoughtful and clean with no mess, so I was very satisfied. I had them do two fireplaces.”

“They came on time, did exactly what they said, and gave me an estimate ahead of time to replace a part at the top of the chimney. They'd get an A.”

“They were very friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. They repaired my chimney, and they also cleaned my chimney years ago. I'd rate them A.”

“It was fine.”

“They did fine. I appreciate what they did. They did a good job, and I was pleased.”

“They were very courteous, explained everything well, and were pretty prompt in getting back to me and in scheduling an appointment. I didn't have a whole lot of work that needed to be done, but the work I did need done, they did adequately. I had been having some leaks in my chimney, and I wanted to make sure that the roof wasn't the cause of the leaking, so they actually got up on the roof and patched a few places. There were no huge holes or major problems, but there were a few places that needed a little bit of maintenance. I would recommend them and give them an A.”

“They did some work on my chimney. The guy was very nice, very professional, and he suggested a couple of different ways to fix the problem, so we decided together on what to do, and he fixed it. He found some other issues while he was out there, took detailed photographs of them, and came down to discuss it with me before starting on that additional work, which was just nice. The original problem was that we had wasps coming in through the chimney, so he sprayed for them in there, cleaned it out, put a mesh around the outside of the chimney so they couldn't get back in, and sealed up everything. He also replaced the top pan over the chimney because it had caved in and we had some water damage in there. They deserve an A.”

“It was very good. We were quite pleased with the technician's work. He did a great job, and so far, we haven't had any more squirrel nests in the chimney. He got rid of the nest in one of our chimneys, and then he put a new cover on both chimneys. We have gas logs, and they're good. They're an A.”

“They're just really helpful. They have good communication—they kept me informed as to what was going on. They came and got rid of some rats. They get an A.”

“He was very knowledgeable and took care of the problem. They removed a family of squirrels from the attic.”

“They were responsive, gave me a reasonable estimate, and did the work the same day. They sealed up a hole where some birds were getting into my house.”

“They came on time and got the job done, so I'm satisfied with that. They had to close up certain spaces near the roof area because there were birds building their nests. I'll give them an A.”

“I had a wonderful experience with Chimney & Wildlife Specialists—they're great. They were very prompt in responding to my emails and questions, and their work was of excellent quality. They took care of cleaning the chimney and fixing the thing at the top so that birds and wildlife can't get in, and they did some wildlife proofing of my attic. I would recommend them.”

“Chimney & Wildlife Specialists was excellent, very efficient, and very quick. They cleaned my chimney, addressed why it was not heating better, and showed me how to use my gas starter more efficiently. Overall, it was really good. They're an A.”

“They took out an old fireplace and put a new chimney cap on top of the chimney stack. The customer service was perfect. I was so impressed with them and their knowledge of the job—A+.”

“They've done work several times, and it's been wonderful.”

“They're excellent. There were some birds in the chimney hood, and they worked with me about that. I would give them an A+.”

“He was great. Chimney & Wildlife Specialists was good. I'd give them A+.”

“They do pretty good work. They removed a bird from the chimney and sealed everything up. I would recommend them, and I'd give them an A+ because they did a good job.”

“They showed up when they said they would and did the job. I would recommend them, and I'd rate their service A+.”

“We were real pleased with the man from Chimney & Wildlife Specialists, because he actually knew what he was doing. He got the raccoons out of the attic without having to tear anything out, and he put a cap up there that's kept them out. I would him—he was a nice man and real polite. I'd rate them A+.”

“They removed a raccoon from my chimney. They were on time, they did exactly what they said they were going to do, and everything worked out. There have been no issues or reasons to call them back for anything. I would recommend them—I'd give them an A+ grade.”

“He explained everything that he was doing and pointed out areas that needed various repairs to keep damage from happening again. I don't live in that house anymore, but the new owners have told me they haven't had any problems. I would recommend them. Their service was A+.”

“The guy from Chimney & Wildlife Specialists was very professional. I called them because I had a dead duck in my chimney that had started smelling, so they came out right away. Then, I had them put in a new damper inside and a new cap on the top to keep out animals. He cleaned up after himself. They gave me options on what I could do, and they gave me the prices of each option. It has worked fine. It was A+ work.”

“They worked for me months ago. They were very nice and very thorough, and they answered all my questions about using my chimney and my fireplace. The guy inspected my chimney, and then he put a new hood thing on top. That's mostly what they did—they cleaned it out, inspected it, and then put that hood on. They earned an A+.”

“They were very professional, did good work, were honest, and weren't trying to push me to purchase something I didn't need. They had to change my chimney cap, and they cleaned my chimney. I chose them because of their professionalism; they were able to come out and look at the issue that I was having that day, so they ended up getting the job. I'd give their work an A+.”

“Their service was very good. The guy was on time, and the work that he did was exactly what he said he was going to do. I liked the technology he used to take pictures of what was up in the chimney—he brought it down and showed us the pictures, and that helped us to visualize the work that needed to be accomplished. They were an A+ business.”

“They were able to get out here quick, and they took care of a very difficult problem for us. We had a mama and three juvenile raccoons living in our chimney, and they were able to remove all of them. I would say they are A+.”

“I had them come out to look at my chimney—they were looking at the damper and all that. He cleaned my chimney, and he checked the damper and the cap on top of the chimney. He was very efficient and very knowledgeable. I'd grade them A+.”

“They inspected the chimney. They were on time, they were efficient, and they did what they said they were going to do. I would rate them as an A+.”

“We had an animal in our chimney, and they fixed the problem. They came out, and their work was fine—everything was good. The technician was informed, and they came out pretty quickly. I would rate them as an A+.”

“They did a very good job on the work. They did a surround job, and they put a cap on. There have been no issues or reasons to call them back for anything. I would recommend them—I'd give them an A.”

“Chimney & Wildlife Specialists was awesome. The gentleman who came out was very informative. We had never had a chimney cleaned before, so we had lots of questions. He answered us in a way we could understand. He went onto the roof and looked around, and he was extremely thorough. I felt really at ease after he was finished. From one to ten, I'd give him a ten. They deserve an A+.”

“We're very happy with their service. The guy solved several problems we were having with our chimney. He sealed the bricks to help keep moisture out of the fireplace, and he capped and mortared the top. We've had no problems or leaks—everything has been perfect since. I'd recommend them. They're an A+.”

“They came and removed a bird I had in my fireplace. They also sealed and capped my chimney. I was pretty impressed—A+.”

“Chimney & Wildlife Specialists was great. I loved them. I thought they did a fabulous job. I'd recommend them. I would give them an A.”

“The guy that came out and inspected our chimney was awesome. We were having some issues, and they found out what the problem was and recommended a course of action. They came out to tell us what was wrong. We've bought a big new house, and there are a lot of things that need doing. The maintenance work they have done already was excellent. They were great, and we probably will go with them when we decide to rebuild the chimney. I'd give them an A.”

“We've had them twice now with the same technician, and they are fabulous. They are professional, and everything was completely clean and spotless when they left. I recommended them to my neighbor, who has been using them as well. They cleaned the chimney, which we are doing once a year now. I'd give them an A+.”

“Chimney & Wildlife Specialists did good work and came out promptly. The guy that I did all my scheduling with returned my calls. They kind of checked my chimney and my fireplace. They painted the inside of it, cleaned it out, and made it look nice. Then they did additional work, closing off some areas that would allow little critters to get inside the chimney. I would rate them as an A+.”

“I have nothing but good things to say about them. One Sunday night, I had a squirrel or something in my attic. From my bedroom, I heard something over my head. So, I called a couple of places, and they came out on the spot. The guy walked me through everything and took me up in the attic. They were excellent. I would definitely recommend them to a friend or family member. I would rate them as an A+.”

“They were very professional. The guy who showed up was very competent and took care of the problem of a bird trapped in my chimney in a very efficient manner. He had to take the chimney apart and afterward replace the external cap on the roof, which is how the animal got in. I would recommend them. I'd give them an A+.”

“Their customer service was great, and the guy who came out was fast, quick, and very polite. He installed a cap on the chimney, and everything stayed clean. There have been no issues since. I'd recommend them and give them an A+.”

“They're very professional, and they actually did work at both of our houses. They cleaned up everything that they were doing. We had them come back out and put a gas log in one fireplace, and we're completely satisfied with them. They cleaned two chimneys, one of which is a normal fireplace and another which is a two-way fire fireplace. I would recommend them. They deserve an A+.”

“They came in here and were able to diagnose the problem and suggest other maintenance things that could be done so that the fireplace could be used safely. I would say they are an A-1 service company. They replaced the logs in the fireplace and also did some sealing on the outside. I would recommend them to a neighbor or friend. I'd give them an A+.”

“I liked the fact that he took video of parts of the chimney that I would not be able to see. He upgraded the logs, painted the inside, and replaced the concrete cap on the top of the chimney. I would rate them as an A+.”
