Been burned before... Hemorrhaged money by making the wrong choices on reno projects... It is good I found someone to reduce the risk of that ever happening again. It is a great feeling having a general contractor you can trust to hire the best people when doing a renovation. The work he has done in my kitchen, including the entire kitchen install, is a reflection of who he is and what he values. The oak floor was done so perfectly that people gasp when they see it when they walk in the kitchen. It was a furniture grade job. Most importantly is I return to Paschal when I need something done. That for me shows I really trust him to do right by me. I would be happy to give a reference to anyone considering hiring him.

When Sean came to assess my fireplaces and chimney, I could tell he knew his stuff. Everything he told me aligned with the home inspector's report. He did great work and was communicative and reliable.

We have been using Vinnie and Gaelle even before they began Galeforce Home Services. They have always been reliable, well priced and I have never encountered a problem with their work. I have had them do plumbing, pool opening and closings, pulling up carpets to name a few. If you are looking for a company who is reliable and ready to work, then Galefore is the company for you. I highly recommend them and I am actually a tough customer to please. I will be using them for other jobs in the very near future.

    David has taken care of my system since I bought the house over three years ago. He has always taken the extra time and attention to make sure the whole unit was working at peak performance, he is great at answering any questions we have had, and has personally gone the extra mile to make sure we are both satisfied and well informed. Recently he helped me locate a new switch and internal kiln bricks for the unit that both worked perfectly for my system at a fraction of the cost of going to our local fireplace store. I would recommend David to anyone who values high quality and service.

    Joe fixed our fireplace, connected it to the gas, and put the new glass screen on. Now we finally have a beautiful, working fireplace! We are very happy with the professional job he did. The price was very fair and he was also very pleasent, which is always important too.

    In the past I have always had trouble finding skilled and reliable carpenters. I was never fully satisfied with their work or they wouldnt show up or the prices were astronomical. I'm so happy I found Marcus of Cooke Builders! We hired Marcus and his crew to do our kitchen install and I'm so happy we did! He did an amazing job. He doesn't cut corners and is meticulous with his work. Our kitchen install came out beautifully! I was so pleased with his work that I hired him again for our bathroom renovation. Again he did a beautiful job, the tile looks great! We asked if he would add some crown molding and chair rail to our living room and he and his crew did a great job at that too. I refuse to use anyone else for carpentry work in our home! I hired Cooke Builders and have not looked back since. I highly recommend! If you want quality, reliability and honest pricing I suggest you look no further. My days of searching for that perfect carpenter are over, I found him and it's Marcus from Cooke Builders!

    I called because my son threw a ball through my 6 month old picture window. Joe the technician came out the same day. Was very polite and informative. He explained the process of replacing the double pane window. Didn't have to buy a whole new picture window. The job was done 3 days later and after all was said and done the window looked like it did the day it was installed. Would absolutely without question call them again.

If anyone might need a reference they can always contact me both Matt's have my contact information, call anytime before 9pm.... Casey

    These folks installed a pellet stove for me when my furnace broke last winter. Not only did they come out quickly, but their knowledge and experience when they ran into a construction problem was beyond impressive. When they arrived, they went right to work, laying drop cloths and being very careful with the mess that goes with having a pellet stove installed. Not only was my heating bill cut in HALF, but so was my electric bill . . .I didn't expect that. Thanks to these folks, I'm actually looking forward to this winter. I would highly recommend them.

    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.
