Chimney inspection and cleaning

Mitch (with Chris supervising) just cleaned and inspected my chimney in my newly purchased 1950's era home. I wasn't sure if I needed it done but once I saw all the debris that was resting on the damper I was very happy I called them. They were very fastidious about making sure they made no mess in my house which I was very impressed by. Chris left me with some suggestions for preventative maintenance that I should get done if I find I'm using the fireplace a lot. (Grout work on the tiled hearth)

Chimney Repair (Tuck Pointing, Flue, Cover)

We needed some tuck pointing repairs to our sad, crumbling chimney. Chris was the first contractor to respond and his quote was very reasonable. Chris and his son, Mitch, were very professional and they did a outstanding job making the repairs. Strongly recommended. I will definitely use them again.

Chris saved me a lot of money!

I had a different company come in to clean our chimney. While cleaning it a small piece of the liner broke off. I was advised that I would likely need to have the existing clay liner removed and a new stainless steel liner installed - cost of approximately $5500. I booked them to have the estimator come out and quote it (and yes you have to pay them to give you a quote) and they screwed up the appointment and didn't show- but they said for sure it would have to be done- $5500. It didn't seem legit to me so I contacted Chris - he found the time (right before Christmas) to come out, clean it properly and inspect it. Guess what - the flue is fine - doesn't need to be replaced. Thank goodness there are still ethical business people around like Chris - I'm now a customer for life!

Chimney restoration and fireplace cleaned

I called 4 contractors from Homestars.....3 contractors either said they were too busy or they could come by in the following week to look at the job .....
Chris , as it turned out ,was finishing another job and said he would be right there within 30 minutes to look at job ....
Chris not only showed up , he stayed for another hour to answer ALL the questions I had about the job !!!
we gave Chris the job within 4 days ,as the other contractors failed to even call !!
Chris and his son arrived at appointed time , did the job in a day and a 1/2 !!!
Very PROFESSIONAL !!! EASY to talk too !!!
THANKS Chris !!!

Chimney sweep

Chris and his son came to clean my chimney which I have not had cleaned since I moved into our place 6 years ago. Chris and his son were very personable and professional and provided some great advice to keep the fireplace in good working condition. I would highly recommend Metro Chimney. Thanks for doing a great job guys!

Fast and great service

I called Chris on Friday afternoon and told him I needed my chimney cleaned ASAP and he told me he would try and fit me Saturday, otherwise it would be Monday or Tuesday. He called me back a couple hours later and asked me if I was home because he could come right away! So, so happy that he was able to come so quickly. He was friendly, did a great job and gave good advice. Thanks for job well done!

Chimney cleaning

Today was my second time using Metro Chimney Inc. and I was not disappointed.
Mike, accompanied by his son, is the type of service provider you wish there were more of. He is thorough, friendly, conscientious about being on time and his post-sweep cleaning is flawless.
He provided review of his findings and offered suggestions to minimize creosote buildup.
I will definitely use Mike again.

Chimney Cleaning

Very clean and thorough. Lots of good recommendations for doors and gas logs. He recommends cleaning every 3 to 4 years, not like some companies that phone every six months.

Chimney cleaning

Chris Bowes has cleaned our chimney for the past two years and his work has been excellent. He responds to emails quickly and the work is always done cleanly and in a timely manner. He is very accommodating about appointment times and always arrives on time. We have used other chimney cleaning companies and Metro Chimney Inc is by far the best. We will certainly call Chris to do our chimney work next year as well.
