Had Colonial come in for a second opinion and it turned out that the first opinion was overcharging us. We only needed to have a liner installed in our furnace flue and not both. I dealt with CJ & Chris and they were great. The day of install they had to come a bit later than planned due to another install job but they called and let us know. When they went to install the liner it turned out they needed another piece and had to leave to get it but they came back and finished the job, cleaned up, and were super professional the whole time. They even patched up some loose bricks in our fireplace with some left over cement from the chimney cap they replaced at no extra charge, which was awesome on their part. They took pictures to show us everything they did and it was great. If you deal with Colonial I highly recommend CJ and Chris, they made this a painless pleasurable repair experience.

Michael and Rosen have done excellent work for me for more than 15 years. They gutted and finished my master and guest bathrooms; gutted and fully remodeled my basement, including expanding the half bath there to a full bath and installing a gas fireplace; they built new stairway access to my basement; built an attached shed/garage; built a large composite deck; and finally, built our long planned addition that included a new entryway and bumped out the entire back of our house, expanding our dining room space and fully remodeling an expanded kitchen space. Milano Construction has been in business for a long time. They are a small operation, but can do anything from fix a plugged pipe to building additions. They are trustworthy, honest to a fault, and extremely fair with their pricing. They are a customer-oriented operation that can provide turn key service if you don’t want to get involved in the nitty gritty or work with you every step of the way in a truly custom way. I work from home so had the opportunity to be involved in every aspect of my projects and have learned plenty from watching over their shoulders and “helping” out along the way. These two are patient and want you to be satisfied with the outcome of the job. They don’t cut corners and do it right every time. I recommend Michael and Rosen for any handyman or remodeling work you may need. You’ll be hard pressed to find a comparably priced, dependable team that does the kind of quality work that they do. Attached are photos of our finished kitchen/dining room space, so you can get a sense for their work product.

Nir knew what he was doing, was thorough with his work, and was very pleasant. We were long overdue a chimney sweep so there was a lot of buildup that he needed to remove. Before he embarked on the intensive cleaning he explained to us why this was a more involved job than a regular chimney sweep. Accordingly, it cost more than the base price for a regular chimney sweep but it was a perfectly fair price. In addition, Nir repaired the ash box at no charge. We plan to call him for our annual chimney maintenance.

We couldn’t be happier with the work or the finished product.

I am highly recommending Supreme Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning to anyone who need a heating and air conditioning service, as well as a air duct/dryer vent cleaning service. My dryer was not running efficiently and needed a dry vent cleaning. I called Sears Home Service to clean my dryer vent since they have a big name. They told me that they were running promotion and can get my vent cleaning and dryer vent cleaning for $189. However, on the day of the service, instead of cleaning my vents and dryer vent as stated in the contract, the technician went into our furnace system, and told me that my furnace is dirty and that he will clean my furnace for additional $600, otherwise, he would not clean the air vent for me. I told him that $600 was way too expensive for cleaning the furnace, and I don't want the service. The Sears guy simply got out of the furnace and left. After his left, I found that we didn't have hot water. The air-conditioning and heating was no longer working. I had to call Sears again, but the customer service told me that the technician had never come inside the furnace; it was my responsibility to fix the air-condition/heating unit and hot water tank. However, they are willing to send the technician to our house to clean the furnace on Wednesday. That means that I have to live without air-condition/heating and hot water for another 3 days. So I called Supreme Comfort on Sunday afternoon. Dave Whatley answered the phone. After he learned my situation, he came on Monday morning, fixed my air-condition/heating system, and hot water, and then cleaned my furnace, 10 vents, 1 dryer vent, and 1 outside coil unit for only $350. The work he did is fantastic. He video-taped everything of what happened on my furnace, the hot water tank (which was turned off purposely by Sear technician since I am not willing to pay additional $600 to clean the furnace). After he finished job, he tested everything to make sure that the system is running fine before he left. I could not be happier for the service. Dave is very responsible, very honest, and very good on what he is doing. I could not find anyone else who can provide a high quality service with a very affordable amount of money ($350 vs. $789 from Sears). I will use him for my yearly air-condition/heating system maintenance and any related repair.

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.
