Metro Chimney has been cleaning my chimney for the last ten years . Chris has always been on time for his appointments and thorough in his cleanings. I would definitely recommend Metro Chimney for anybody looking to get their chimney cleaned.

Chimney Removal and Repair

I received a few quotes for the removal of a chimney in the back of our house. Chris' quote was the most reasonable. He showed when he said he would and kept the work site clean. He completed the job on time, even though it meant working in the rain on the second day. I was so impressed with his work that I had him come back and do additional tuck pointing of a second chimney stack at our house. Thanks.

Chimney Repair

After receiving a number of quotes from various companies, we chose Chris Bowes to do the repairs to our crumbling chimney. He was reasonably priced and explained in detail the work that needed to be done. He was on time each day and always left the job site spotless. Our chimney looks amazing and we were so impressed with Chris' work, that we will be calling him in the Fall time for regular chimney cleanings and fireplace safety inspections. Thanks for a great job, Chris!

Chimney re-pointed, new chimney cap and liner installed, window sill repaired and resealed, fireplace hearth and ashpit prepped for gas insert

Our job with Chris started off with chimney repair work being done and we were so impressed with the job he did that we extended our work with him to include repairing hairline cracks we had by our bay window sill and preparing our fireplace for a gas insert. What impressed me the most with Chris was his professionalism, reliability, and great pride he took in all the jobs he performed for us. For each job, he explained all the options available for us, provided reasonable quotes for each of them, delivered on time as promised, and did quality work with no hidden surprises/costs after the fact.

For our fireplace, he spent extra time helping us understand all the steps that would be required to convert our wood burning fireplace to gas and even helped us by coordinating his efforts (i.e. pouring a new hearth and cleaning out the ash pit so a gas line could run through it) with another company that would then install the gas line and gas burning log kit.

I would definitely recommend Chris to any of my friends and would not hesitate to hire him in the future.

Thanks again for all your help, Chris ..... Al

Rebuilt Chimney, Installed Damper and Caps, Cleaned and Repaired Firebox, Repoured Hearth and Extension

I have a wood burning fireplace that was in dire need of attention. I shopped around for other quotes and nothing beat Metro Chimney's quote. The W.E.T.T. mason was prompt, friendly, and professional with the work that was done.

The mason is highly educated in the wood burning fireplaces. I was given an honest quote for work required to be done to make it operable and sustainable.

I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Metro Chimney to anyone who has an old fireplace that has smoke migration problems or downdraft issues etc.

Sincerely,

Happy Customer

Chimney Rebuild and window sill replacement.

Metro Chimney replaced my furnace chimney which was falling apart. They also replaced the crumbling bricks below my family window. Chris did a great job matching the brick and the work looks professionally done. Chris took the time to explain the work that would be done each day and explained each step in the process. Metro Chimney cleaned up each day and never left a mess at the end of the project which lasted 4 days. Chris took pictures of my chimney to show me the work that was required and when the job was completed. I am very satisfied with the professional appearance and quality of the work completed by Metro Chimney.

Thanks for the review Tony I'm glad that you're happy with my work. Finding new brick that matches the colour of the existing brick can be difficult in some cases. This is one of those cases and together we made the right choice. It was a pleasure dealing with you.
All the best, Chris
