Removal of Chimney.

I had a large chimney that was deteriorating. It was about 7 ft by 3 feet. Trevor came to give me an estimate. I explained I didn’t use the chimney. He suggested I could do one of two things. Either rebuild the Chimney or remove and cap. He gave me an estimate for both and I chose the latter. His staff of three men arrived. They were very polite, hardworking, efficient and cleaned up afterwards. They arrived at 10:30 and were gone by 5. They hardly stopped working except for lunch. I cannot say enough about this company. They are professional in all aspects even down to the drone they used to inspect my chimney. They also take crust cards which I like. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

phone consultation

Called this company on recommendation after the chimney cleaner stated an inspection was required for our wood stove. This issue is complicated (condo townhouse) but John addressed all the issues that would be in play and gave suggestions on how to move forward to address this - Safety being the primary issue! He is well versed in his profession including dealing with condo rules and for that alone his expertise is priceless. He did not pressure me into arranging service but informed me of my options. Very impressed and grateful.

Chimney Liner and pipe

Work was quoted at $475 for the liner and after mumbling something about 'B-Vent', which I wasn't asking about, they estimated $175 for that part of the work.

I don't know what 'B-Vent' is, but it must be expensive. The work on the vent took under 20 minutes, and used parts that you could buy at Home Depot for $20.

The bill also took a long time to arrive. They are also difficult to get on the phone, making it too much trouble to dispute the billing, but I am definitely unhappy.

However, once the two man crew arrived, they did nice work on a chimney liner install and moving the vent pipe to meet TSSA requirements. The job took a little over two hours.

Inspection, Fireplace install, chimney fix

Inspection didn't fare well for wood stove. Gas insert ordered and installed. Took 4 visits to get it working. The owner finally came and fixed it. Exhaust and Intake were switched at the chimney top. Love the fireplace. Wish I knew it needed electrical to have the fan operating. Next winter!

rebuild fireplace in Heritage Home after fire

After a fire underneath the floorboard of our fireplace, we were told
that we would have to completely rebuild the fireplace to bring it up to code. These people were not daunted by the age of the house
or the pitiful construction of the existing fireplace. They were prompt, very professional and helpful. Great job guys!

gas to wood conversion

We decided to convert our gas fireplace back to wood burning. Unknown to us we needed to reline the chimney, replace the damper and put in a stainless steel flue. This required breaking a hole in the chimney from the back, the back of which had just been renovated for our new dining room.
Carleton came in and completed the work in 4 days. The work was done timely, with precision and with the highest quality. Notably the crew carried out the work with utmost care. They erected a tent around the fireplace, made as little noise as possible and created next to no dust at all.
I strongly recommend them. You can be assured your fireplace will never be a cause for concern.

Quote to repair a chimney

Our water heater was red tagged due to several code violations. In contacting Carleton they responded immediately (actually, the guy was on the roof when he answered the phone - to give you an idea). They arrived at the property within 30 minutes. Very professional and extremely timely. I would highly recommend this company to anyone seeking chimney work.

Chimney rebuild

My chimney was falling apart and on the advice of my neighbour, I had Carleton Chimney give me a quote. They were very quick and provided me with advice of how to fix it. Their quote was significantly less than another quote I received, so I checked them on Homestars and decided to proceed.

The crew was dispatched quickly and spent three days tearing down and rebuilding my chimney. They built scaffolding and protected my pool equipment and deck. Afterwards, they cleaned up the job site. The final price was exactly what they quoted and the quality of workmanship was excellent.

For providing cost competitive, prompt, and high quality work, I am giving Carleton Chimney a top rating.

Chimney Rebuild and Foundation Parge

They were very professional, only recommended what was needed and did the job correctly. They cleaned up afterward so that you would never know they were there. I would definitely hire them again.

Chimney repair due to raccoon damage

After making several phone calls to different chimney companies in Toronto, who stated they would arrive within 3-4 days, I finally called John Carleton who arrived within hours of receiving my call. He heard the distress in my call and treated the situation with the urgency and compassion it deserved. The service I received from the receptionist to the crew was exceptional. I would highly recommend Carleton Chimney Services Inc to anyone in need. Thank you John and staff !!!!!!
