Aaron with A-Team Construction has done multiple projects for my family. They installed a patio door where we once had a window, re-did my kitchen, re-did my bathroom, finished our basement with a custom built entertainment system including theater, installed an egress window so we could add a bedroom in our basement, removed the chimney used for our old furnace, and re-roofed to match where the chimney once was. His heart, top notch and one of a kind. It's evident he/they are committed to helping others accomplish their dreams.

We had gotten 3 bids with local Drywall Contracters, GDC was not the cheapest. When Dan arrived to quote our project of Drywalling our garage, I knew he was a professional. He arrived on time and took his time to ask questions of what our expectations were and what he needed to do to achieve those expectations. His crew did an excellent job installing, plastering and applying a prime coat of paint on the new drywall. We were well pleased and hired then a second time for a heater installation project. This is not a Company that you can call one week and expect them to be there the next week. They are very busy and will need time to schedule your project. Maybe a month or so out from the quote.

Finding a good handyman needn't be difficult--just call Craig. He completed quite a variety of work to help me prepare my house for sale, including installing water barrels and new downspouts, removing a satellite and repairing roof, installing fans and light fixtures, hanging a medicine cabinet, grouting, concrete patching, and hanging a new storm door, among other projects. Craig did excellent work, and it is clear that he is a very skilled, trustworthy, and fair handyman. I recommend him so highly--I wish I had found him years earlier.

Scott bricked the fireplace in my living room. He did a fantastic job. His price was right on point with other quotes I receive. He was able to squeeze my smaller project in quickly so that I didn't have to wait too long. He was also patient when I waffled on design ideas. Not that this matters as much when you're hiring a professional (as opposed to making a friend), but overall, Scott was pleasant to be around. I'd absolutely recommend Scott. I've recently hired a lot of work while updating my home and Scott has been the easiest to communicate with. No complaints.

Adriane (Golden Rule Masonry) and his crew gave me a quote for three large fireplaces, two with waterfalls. I was extremely happy with the results. We were on a tight schedule and couldn't afford any delay's. All work was done meticulously and on time. What is to be noted is this is a commercial project and we needed to work odd times, never a problem! Very clean and attention to detail. Excellent! I was extremely impressed and highly recommend them (Golden Rule Masonry) for future projects. All Phase Home Remodeling LLC

    I have gone through a lot of trouble getting consultations, ranging from Home Depot to the Ganser Company, to have my unfinished bathroom constructed from the concrete basement floor to the ceiling joists. The estimates I received were all over the place and I felt hesitant with those companies due to their salesmen pitches and inflated prices. I was referred to Mike, had him come out to my house to get an idea of what I was looking for, and asked him for an estimate. The first thing I noticed while talking to him was, he wasn’t giving me a sales pitch. From the cabinetry to the tile, your project can get pricy quickly. Mike gave me ideas of what would give me the most bang-for-my buck. Mike took notes for what I was looking for, went home and created a CAD drawing with some ideas he had. I started making selections and he gave me an estimate. When my wife and I received it, we could not believe how much more affordable it was. We gave him the thumbs up to start work. Throughout the process, Mike surprised me with each step. The tile work is detailed and beautiful. Mike did the plumbing, electrical, drywall, tile, cabinetry, trim, shower install, etc. Whenever he wasn’t 100% satisfied with the way something came together, he would redo it until it was outstanding. For example, he received my shower glass in and found some imperfections (a couple scratches and a chip). He thought he could hide those small imperfections with the shower hinges but there was still a little showing. He took the glass back to the dealer and had it replaced. I consider myself a perfectionist; his quality of work and detail surpassed my expectations. I cannot say enough good things about Mike and his company. I have already found several other large-scale projects I will be calling him back for.

    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.
