Excellent job sealing our chimney! We have not had any leaks in our fireplace with all the rain we have been getting since Caesar came out and sealed our chimney. Thank You!
The representatives were very professional. The technician, Steve, showed up promptly and did an outstanding job cleaning the fireplace windows! I would definitely use again.
Good inspection. Not the news I wanted to hear, but professional and explained the issues with our pre-fab fireplace. Currently, we cannot afford the repairs, so shutting down the fireplace for the season and maybe have Bresnahan LTD do the repairs when we are better prepared for the repair costs. Would recommend.
FACTS installed a new dryer vent in our basement when we switched dryers and relocated them. Two employees arrived first thing in the morning on time and both worked extremely hard. Very satisfied. A+++
Sam is definitely the best at what he does! And his pricing was very fair to me (good Value!) Sam fixed and did maintenence on our 19 year old central air conditioner. After he acid cleaned outside fins and the evap coil, added refrdgerant and tightened the valve cap, even though it was was 93° outside, the basement temp was a frosty 68°. On a 19 year old unit thats amazing. We had fairly competent people in past but only Sam was smart, knowledgable and cared enough to know how to really do the job well. Also, he planned next move to fully check for leaks other than a loose valve cap but no need; Sams brights, knowledge and experience did the trick. Even though Sam is so good that he is booked solid for weeks, he is truly dedicated to taking care of his customers. We had a leak continue but even though he had work lined up elsewhere, he made time somehow (energetic fast worker) to come quite a distance the very next day and get our a/c going. A few weeks later, we remain cool and happy. We are an elderly couple and without Sam's gracious dedication our home would not have been safe for us because of heat. Now no problem :) But wait, there is more: Yes, we hired Master Finish for a dyer vent cleaning. Our vent run is a long one, but Sam has the right tools and totally cleaned the vent long very flexable hose-like device that allowed Sam to clear the elbow bend of our venting system without having to take apart the duct work. We had been spending about $45 a month at the laudramat but now it's just the cost of detergent and electric. But, wait, there is more!! Sammy has skills with clothes dryers. (I'd guess with other appliances too but no time to "go there" Fact: most Fires from use of dryer come from dust on the dryer heating element. Sam was able to quickly put the dryer on it's side, open the back and blow the dust which was on top of the dryer heating element. Maytag cost would have been 60% higher! Yes even more :) Sam does not make up work for himself. He checked the washer water hose and let us know it was still fine. We call him our house doctor. Thank you very much,
I had my gutters cleaned and repaired as well as dryer vent cleaned - good reasonable priced. Fast service. Quality work. All went well - will hire again.
We had issues with our water heater exhaust vent and found out there were bunch of dead birds inside the pipes. Didn’t know who to contact but was told chimney related professional was needed. John reached out to us first and offered to come out very next day so we can resolve the issues. John was very honest and offered what needed to be done to prevent any animals getting inside of vent. Price was very reasonable and even offered lifetime warranty on newly installed roof vent cover. They installed high quality product where others offered that will last only few years. Overall, I’m very happy with results. I highly recommend John and his company.
Ed handled a surround sound installation in my family room. The builder had the wires somewhere in the walls and ceiling, and Ed found every one with his toner on the first try, making exactly and only the correct holes first time; No drywall repair at all, and very limited mess to clean up afterward. The TV over the fireplace looks awesome, the receiver and Blue Ray player is in another room out of sight, and the speaker and sub blend into the room like they aren't even there. The sound is fantastic. This job was completed in about 10 hours total. I highly recommend Ed's services; Everything went as planned, on budget, and works perfectly.
I hired Stan to help move our new gas range from our garage up to our condo, and then install it. Stan was very responsive, arrived right on time, and completed the job quickly and accurately. I'm hiring him again to install a toilet and repair some drywall in my bathroom. I highly recommend Stan and wish I'd found him a long time ago!
I had them out for an inspection on my fireplace to see if it was safe to burn as we had just moved in. The two men that showed up were very polite and knowledgeable, and spent a lot of time educating us on our fireplace (never had one before). When they left we felt at ease about using our fireplace and would highly recommend them.
John went right to work. He is thorough and creative. He did a kitchen for me and was much faster and camera up with some great ideas for routing a stove vent. Full disclosure: I knew John about 30 years ago. But haven't been in touch until this year. Am really happy to reconnect with him and extremely lucky that scheduling worked out so that he could work on this project! I have had some iffy results with handypeople in area and intend on hiring him to revamp my dad's kitchen.
Going with Precision was one of the best decisions I feel like I could have made for my project! Aron and Victor are tremendous craftsmen. They completely rebuilt my chimney, built my fireplace and mailbox. And also tuckpointed my entire house. Even though they weren't the cheapest bid that I received, I could right tell right away that they were the ones to go with. From the initial consultation to the last piece of equipment getting loaded onto the truck, their services and professionalism were second to none. I will be highly recommending Precision to anyone that I hear needs the services that they provide.
Dana promptly responded to my request and showed up next day with Joe and Richard. All three did an amazing job. They walked me through all the details of the two fireplaces and dryer vent, what they found and any recommendations they had. Will highly recommend and definitely hire again.
I called Capital Chimney for regular maintenance on my chimney. They scheduled me quickly, based on my availability. They were punctual and friendly. They explained everything they checked and what their suggestions were for maintenance and why. They were very informative! Their rates were either competitive or lower than companies I have used in the past, and I feel I got the most value for my money with them. Overall, I would definitely use them again. I also recommended them to my parents who need repairs on their fireplace/chimney.
Derrick quickly assessed the problem and offered the remedy steps which he and his assistant took in less than 2 hours. There is a contingency plan he outlined in the event the condensation problem on the fireplace wall re-occurs. He took the time for a full explanation and in answering our questions. I would highly recommend this company
Henry did a great job of installing a new mantel for our fireplace. Would definitely recommend!
This was a multi part review as there are things they did well, things I later noticed later that were not so well. 1. 5 stars on repair work was great, our front balconies were falling apart, and no one would fix it. Mostly because you need special insurance for balconies because of the elevation. I give them 5 stars on this part of the job, it wasn't easy finding someone willing to fix it. They did a good job on a difficult job. 2. 4 stars on repainting the metal balconies and stairs front and back of the condominium. 3. 2 stars on replacing the deck's, we asked for trex composite, but later I come to find out it was installed wrong, they screwed directly through the top of the boards, when they were supposed to use hidden fasteners which it was design for. Initially thought in my ignorance it looked great, but realized we spent a lot of extra money for those boards only to be installed like they were wooden planks. Also noticed they cut corners a little by not using full length boards everywhere they could of. Overall my experience was ok, but I would only hire them if I was going to be around to monitor them while they work( I was out of town, my neighbors would be at work all day). They need someone to check the quality of the work internally, I'd rather not have to do it given I don't know a lot of how things should be done the right way. In term's of time, It also took a little over a month to paint, replace the floor boards of a 3-4 floors front and back balconies, and repair the front vanity plates that were falling off. Some rain delays in May, we've had a lot in chicago this year.
I have used Green Air care services for duct cleaning and AeroSeal Service. The latter job took almost an entire day, but we were very happy with the results. Home efficiency went up significantly. We had tons of leakage in our system and so happy we did the service. I do recommend to not be home for this, as it kind of smells in the house during the process. They also did a UV install, which is good from what I have read online. Give these guys a try.
