Robert was very professional and did a great job cleaning my chimney. He also answered a lot of my questions and took time to explain how my fireplace works as well as suggestions to maintain it. I would highly recommend McHenry County Chimney Service.

Hired Bresnahan LTD to do fireplace refacing from an outdated wood surround to stone. The final product turned out great and I am very happy with the communication from the company with any concerns I had with the refacing as I was out of town when the project was taking place. The area was left cleaner than it was when they got there, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a mason for an upcoming/future project.

Joe installed baseboard and quarter round, hung a TV/Bookshelf wall unit, replaced a shower curtain rod in our main bathroom and located studs in our front hall closet (stud finder challenged here). Joe is great to work with, he got the job done for us on very short notice and with high quality. We will definitely be using his services again.

I cannot recommend JPL Masonry, and Jon, enough. They are fantastic! This is your go to guy for fireplace installation and masonry work. We needed to retro fit our wood burning fireplace with a gas fireplace, which JPL Masonry did to perfection. JPL Masonry is professional, responsive, and does great work. Jon made sure we were aware of every step of the installation, and installed a beautiful new gas fireplace.

After buying my home I ended up with water damage in my basement, Joe was recommended to me by a neighbor. He came in and assessed the damage and told me what was wrong and gave me a quote to do the work. Joe had to remove master bath shower and remove all the drywall in the ceiling of my basement. He was great and kept my house clean and dust free everyday he worked on my shower. He was patient with me as chose tile for the wall and floor of the shower. Joe did an excellent job installing the tile, grout and drywall. He even painted my bathroom and the ceiling in the basement, making sure everything was clean when he was finished! I love my new shower!

I had a little job of putting down some floor tile and trim in my furnace room. Dave came out, looked at the job ( which I figured was to small) gave me a very reasonable price and they would be out first thing Monday morning. They were here when he said, did excellent work and I am very satisfied. I would recommend them anytime. Professional with excellent workmanship!!! Hard to beat!!

We're very happy with the work Randy has done. He was on time & entry door installation is perfect. We've had him do other projects as well. He takes pride in his work & is not overpriced. At this point he has a key to this still empty house so he can complete the list of small projects.

Jani and his dad did an excellent job. Most of the work was done by his dad Sotir. Before we hired Jani and Sotir, we had a unique situation where we started remodeling our bsmt. We initially hired a contractor by name James Divino who cheated us and took half the agreed money and quit on us and went untraceable (have a legal case against him). At that time, Jani and his dad came like saviors for us through Thumbtack. Sotir is an outstanding carpenter. He has great skill and craftsmanship. Jani and Sotir worked on our project for almost 2 months. All the work was done within the agreed time frame and within our initial agreed amount. These two men have the best work ethics that we have ever seen before. They showed up everyday on time and were very friendly to deal with. They gave a lot of great ideas during this project that we implemented. At the end of the project they wowed us by building a Surround Mantel for our fireplace from scratch. We will hire them again and highly recommend them for all types of home remodeling work including carpentry, drywall, tile, hardwood installation, electrical and plumbing.

We have had Home Renovations byWalter come out for many projects. He had all the equipment needed to get up on the roof at our office complex to replace outdoor lights. He also saved us money by changing the sign lights and install new fluorescet light fixtures in our offices. He suggested we change to LED as he explained they lasted longer and used less energy. He also maintained our compliance issues with Emergency Exit Lighting and building codes on renovations. A nice guy to deal with and always did like he said. A+

While I was not happy to learn that there are issues with my fireplace, Jim was thorough, efficient and cleaned up everything. He walked me through video of my fireplace and where there are issues. Again, not happy about the costs to get the fireplace usable, but Jim's service was top notch!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How does a chimney get cleaned?

A professional chimney sweep can clean your fireplace and chimney to help prevent chimney fires and keep your fireplace running in peak condition. Regular chimney cleanings are critical for removing the highly flammable creosote that can build up inside the walls of your chimney over time and cause chimney fires. When hiring a cleaning company, ask the chimney sweep if their cleaning fee includes removing soot, creosote and blockages from the chimney flue and liner, cleaning the smoke chamber and shelf, and cleaning the firebox and the damper to ensure that you’re getting a comprehensive cleaning. Expect the chimney sweep to cover the flooring around the fireplace and properly seal off your fireplace opening to catch any soot that comes out during the cleaning.

Look for a chimney sweep who has been certified by a nationally recognized organization such as the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), Fireplace Investigation Research and Education (FIRE), or the National Fireplace Institute (NFI). This will help ensure that your chimney work will be completed in a professional manner and your home will be safe from a chimney fire.

Do I need to clean my chimney?

A fireplace makes a home cozy in winter, but it also requires cleaning to keep your family safe. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), 28 percent of home heating fires are caused by a failure to clean solid-fueled heating equipment — primarily chimneys. On top of that scary fact, nearly 20 percent of all fire deaths are caused by home heating equipment. At a minimum, the NFPA urges homeowners to have chimneys and fireplaces inspected once a year to ensure there are no obstructions blocking the flow of air or any buildup of dangerous and highly flammable creosote. A certified chimney sweep will know what warning signs to look for and have the proper tools. Besides personal safety, saving money is a great motivation for having a chimney sweep regularly clean your chimney. If your chimney liner is not kept clean and in good working order, replacing it can cost thousands of dollars. A yearly cleaning is the baseline for a safe chimney. If your chimney is your main heating source, ask your chimney sweep whether you should have it cleaned more often. If your chimney is not venting properly and smoke is coming into your house, if you notice that the wood you burn is not burning efficiently (turning completely to ash), or if you have other concerns, call for a chimney cleaning and inspection right away.

How much does it cost to have the chimney swept?

The national average chimney sweep cost is $100 to $130. The National Fire Protection Association recommends having your chimney inspected at least once a year, but daily use and other factors might mean you need more regular service. Here are several reasons your chimney sweep cost may be higher than the national average:

  • Overly dirty chimney: If you haven’t cleaned your chimney in many years, or if you’ve just bought an older home and don’t know how long it has been since the chimney was cleaned, excessive grime could increase the cost of the job.
  • Roof height or chimney height: The chimney sweep may also charge an extra fee if your roof is too high for a ladder to reach or is too steep to safely climb on without a harness.
  • Frequency of use: If your fireplace is your primary heating source, the buildup of soot might be far greater than if you just use your fireplace a few times a winter when company comes over. This may impact cost.
  • Excessive debris: Leaves, twigs, and other debris that’s collected in your chimney is a fire hazard and should be cleaned immediately. An excess of junk may result in higher chimney sweep costs.
  • Live or dead animals: Prepare to pay extra if live or dead animals are in the chimney. Rodents, birds and bats can all set up camp in your chimney. A chimney cap can help prevent them from getting in, but once you hear something scurrying around, or smell the unmistakable scent of dead critter, call a chimney sweep immediately.
  • Geographic location: Chimney sweep costs may be higher in your city due to factors such as a higher cost of living or higher cost do business (insurance, overhead, employee wages, etc.).
  • Chimney repair: Any repairs that are needed internally or externally to your fireplace will increase costs. A thorough cleaning and inspection will reveal whether repairs to masonry, tuck-pointing, the back wall, bricks, the fireplace floor or the crown are needed.
  • Chimney cap installation: A chimney cap prevents debris from collecting in your chimney as well as preventing animals such as birds, mice, or raccoons from taking up residence inside. The cost of the chimney cap plus the labor for installation can increase fees.

How often should you have your chimney swept?

Regularly having your chimney cleaned is highly recommended both to improve the chimney’s efficiency as a heat source and to prevent home fires. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends having your chimney inspected at least once a year. You can hire a chimney sweep to clean the chimney while also inspecting it to ensure there is no damage to the lining, firebox or masonry. If you’ve had a new fireplace or wood-burning stove installed, CSIA urges you to have it checked halfway into the first season of use to make sure it’s operating safely. According to industry standards, a chimney sweep is recommended if more than 1/8 of an inch of soot or creosote has built up in the chimney or flue. Some fireplace experts suggest having your chimney cleaned, regardless of buildup, after every 1-2 cords of wood burned. Consult with your chimney sweep about what is best for optimal efficiency and safety with your fireplace.

How long does it take to clean a chimney?

A typical chimney cleaning takes between 30 and 60 minutes. Wood insert fireplaces may take longer to clean, as can chimneys that contain birds’ nests, excessive debris or wildlife. A chimney sweep will arrive at your location and assess the fireplace to be cleaned, and will set up protective coverings or dropcloths to prevent any ash or soot from escaping into your home during the cleaning. Using high-powered vacuums, they clean out ash and other debris in the firebox. With special, long-reach brushes they brush down the interior walls all the way to the top of the chimney to loosen and remove built-up soot and creosote. Many chimney sweeps also offer inspections in tandem with cleanings to make sure you don’t have any cracks or damage inside the chimney or out. Repair work or additions — such as installing a chimney cap — can increase the cleaning time.
