Great friendly service

Adam was great. He removed a squirrel’s nest and cleaned the chimney and now we have fire! He was prompt, professional and very friendly. He offered some suggestions, alerted us to some safety precautions and was just genuinely nice. We will use them again next year for sure.

Hi Joe.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I started this company 40 years ago, and am now getting my son Adam ready to move into a leadership role. I am very proud of him, and happy to know that he is so well received by the customers. Cheers.

Chimney Rebuild

I have requested quote from a total of three companies to rebuild the top half of my chimney and Top Hat's quote was the most competitive. They showed up on time and did not leave any mess behind. I am satisfied with its workmanship. They even gave me a free metal rain shield.

Chimney Sweeping

Steve and his wonderful team have now cleaned my chimney twice. Just when I thought there was no way they could do better than the first time, they came and outdid themselves the second time. They are cost-effective, leave no mess, and are pleasant to deal with. I'll never use another company!

Thank you for the kind review EB. I can't take much credit personally as I haven't done any chimney sweeping myself in many years, but I do my best to ensure that our technicians are top notch in all regards. Steve Spring

More about Top Hat Chimney

Standing above the roofline, chimneys are fully exposed to rain and snow and are affected by winter's freeze/thaw cycles. They are therefore one of the first places on a house to deteriorate. This deterioration usually takes many years to begin but then progresses rapidly. Cracked or spalled bricks, damaged flue tiles or concrete caps, or a leaning structure are signs that the chimney needs immediate attention.

Top Hat Chimney specializes in all aspects of chimney repair and rebuilding. Our brick masons are unsurpassed in their level of expertise, and take pride in their workmanship. They take great care to protect the roof and ground so that all work will be completed in a clean and safe manner.

All of our work is guaranteed against defect in materials and workmanship.

We are happy to provide references from other satisfied customers in your area.

The burning of wood leaves highly flammable deposits in the chimney flue and smoke chamber. Regular cleaning and inspection are essential in the prevention of chimney fires.

All of our expert technicians are WETT certified and employ the most up-to-date chimney cleaning techniques. Care is always taken to insure that there is no mess in the home.
