A selection of 323 homeowner reviews:
“It was absolutely great. Potomac checked two chimneys and cleaned one. They get an A.”
“I trusted the technician, and he knew what he was talking about. After investigating the chimney, he found out there had been a chimney fire, and he diagnosed and gave me his recommendation on what needed to be done. He was helpful in submitting that to the insurance company. They're A+.”
“They were prompt, and they did the chimney cleaning and inspection correctly. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were great. We have a 150-year-old house with old chimneys, and they inspected them all and told us what we needed to do to repair them. I'd give them an A.”
“Potomac gets every star they can—A+ across the board.”
“They rebuilt chimneys and installed new stainless steel flues. They're an A+ company.”
“They were sealing the chimney for me. I thought it was good. It had no more leaking, so that was good. They get an A+ from me.”
“They cleaned all of our ductwork and a dryer vent. They did chimney work as well. I'd give them an A. All of it was an A. They did a really good job and cleaned up after everything.”
“They serviced my chimney and put in a new liner. I'll give them an A.”
“They cleaned the chimney, and they checked to make sure it was sealed properly. They did what they said they were going to do. They showed up when they said they were going to show up. They were reliable. I'd give them an A rating.”
“They were replacing and rebuilding the interior lining of a masonry chimney, and then I had them cleaning the exterior of two chimneys, and re-pointing the mortar in certain places. Finally, on one of the fireplaces, they had to redo a new flue. They were very responsive to me when I called on the phone. They wrote up the appropriate letter explaining what had happened so that I could pass it on to my insurance company. The people they sent out to do the work were very professional and took longer than what they thought it would originally take, but they wanted to do it right, so all that stood out. I'd give them an A.”
“I was always happy with all of my services. I'd give them an excellent grade—they're an A.”
“He was here doing a chimney inspection that was required by my homeowners' association. He was knowledgeable, did the job, and left when he was done, and he didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need. So, it was a positive experience. An A grade is fine for them.”
“Potomac Services came out and did a chimney inspection. It was very simple. I actually called them for chimney sweeping, but that gentleman told me that there wasn't anything that they could do. Since he was there, he said he would go ahead and inspect the chimney and the fireplace area to make sure it was OK, and he did. He was upfront and honest about what he could and couldn't do. He couldn't sweep—my chimney wouldn't allow that. I'd say they're an A. There were no complaints.”
“They came when they said they were going to come, and they did a good job. It was a chimney cleaning. I would recommend them, and I would rate them as an A. I think I found them in the Best Pick Reports. I always look through that book.”
“They were fine. They did just a chimney sweep and inspection, and it seemed thorough and quick. I would recommend Potomac Services, and I'd go ahead and give them an A.”
“Potomac Services helped us out with a wood stove repair. They were on time. With some appointments, people set up a four-hour window and it takes up half your day, but they arrived when they said they would—that's very helpful. Most importantly, they didn't do more than they said they were going to do. They didn't try to sell us more than we asked for. With some things that we asked for, they said, 'You don't need that. You're just going to spend money that you don't need to spend.' They did exactly what we needed, and they did it in a timely fashion. We liked that. I think they might have been listed in the Best Picks. We would recommend them. They earned an A.”
“Potomac Services did good work. I'd definitely use their services again. They replaced two of our chimney vents. Also, when the previous owners had gotten a sweep, they found a couple of endangered birds' nests inside, so he had to verify that the nests and birds were gone and put a cap on so they wouldn't come back. I'd rate their service as an A.”

“We had a very positive experience. The owner of the company cleaned our chimney. We had some work done to it previously, and he actually checked it to confirm that the work was done properly. We didn't ask him to do that. He did it as part of the service. He went above and beyond. I'd give them an A+.”
“They helped me with some repairs on my chimney before I closed on my house. They came promptly to repair it, which helped me close the house for sale. They did a really good job. They were focused on the details, and they did a really good job cleaning up after the job. I'd give them an A+.”

I would use Potomac Services again. I'd definitely give them an A+. He took his time, and he explained what he was doing and why he was doing it. We used him before, so it was very good. They completed the work in a reasonable time frame, and he was on time, too. I would tell a friend or relative that they did a good job.”
“Everything turned out well for me. I just had them come out because it was getting close to winter, and I never had a fire in the upstairs chimney, so I wanted them to come and inspect it. They said it was fine, and I've used it all winter. The customer service was fine. He worked quickly. He just came and did whatever they do.
