Both gentlemen were diligent and professional. They worked well together. The flues did not need to be cleaned but the worker adjusted the cap on one of the chimneys.
I had both flues swept, and a stainless steel liner placed in the flue for the gas furnace. The workers arrived on time and went straight to work after explaining everything that would be done. They were courteous, clean, and professional. Upon completion of the job, they left the area spotless. I have used this company before, and recommended them to my neighbor, who had the same work done the day they came for me. My neighbors were also very impressed with the quality of the job. For any chimney work, I would only recommend this company.
After spending New Year's Eve away from my home, I returned on New Year's Day to a cold house that was without hot water. The company that I have my boiler contract with came within a few hours and determined that the boiler shut off because the flue was blocked. They gave me two chimney company recommendations, and Chimney King was one of them. I checked out the reviews on Angie's List and decided to give them a call. Chimney King came out to my house on the same day I called them. Two workers came to my home to assess the situation and give an estimate. It was determined that my chimney liner was crumbling, most likely as a result of my recent gas conversion. I was told that the gas was drying out the liner, causing it to crumble. The Chimney King workers suggested that I replace the crumbling ceramic liner with a new stainless steel liner. They would also replace the cap. I was initially quoted a price of $1300. After a little bit of negotiating, I was able to get the price down to $1080, which seemed reasonable based on other Angie's List reviews. I was told that the liner could be replaced the following day, and that it could take about two hours to complete. Based on the location of my boiler and chimney, which is a tight, cramped area, the time could be more or less than the estimate. I was concerned about the timing of the entire issue because I was just returning to work after being off for the CHristmas holiday. I was nervous about taking more time off from work. The Chimney King worker said that they normally arrive at their first job between 7:30-8:00. I told him I had to go into work after the replacement. The worker told me that he could be at my home by 7:10, if that would work for me. It did. The following day, the worker showed up with a partner at 7:10 on the dot. They worked diligently for about two hours. They were clean and did a very good job. They finished by 9:10, and I was at my own job by 10:00! I would recommend this company. They were willing to work with me and meet my needs. I would use this company again.
Our cap flew off during Sandy. This prompted a close inspection of our chimney. The chimney needed the upper 2 rows of brick work replaced. Also the masonry on top needed replacing as well as the extension coming out of the chimney and a metal chimney cap. Along with this, a steel chimney liner was inserted and the vents in our basement from our oil furnace and gas hot water heater needed rerouting into the chimney. There was also an exposed area in the basement wall that lead into the chimney which needed masonry work. We were phoned the day before, with a reminder and approximate arrival of the crew. The crew of 3 men arrived promptly at 8:00 AM. The work was completed by 11:30 AM without incident. They did everything we expected and more. They found a dead squirrel in our chimney and removed it. They even took pictures with my camera, at my request to show us their work. The final impression of the quality of their work is exceptional. I love having the pictures to confirm this. Their price was extremely competitive. I only hope everything stands up to the winter weather and time. We must of course keep up with chimney cleanings too. We did get a 10 year warranty on the masonry and a life time warranty on the liner.
They put a new steel chimney liner in, rebuilt my chimney from the roof up, and put a cap on. Overall, they were excellent. They offered me the best price for the services and they were very professional and efficient. Everything went as smooth as can be and I'm very happy with the end results.
I needed chimney pointing repair, crown repair, chimney sweep and clean out. They were prompt, clean, pleasant and professional. I thought my roof would get damaged because it is so old but it did not. They know what they're doing and they did an awesome job. The only way you could tell they were there was if you looked at my chimney pointing.and saw the perfection. I didn't expect to see such expert masonry, but there it was. There was never a mess, even while cleaning the chimney. They also installed a chimney liner for my fireplace insert last year, and they did a wonderful job then too. So, if you want work done properly, hire Chimney King Enterprises., Inc. 516 766-1666 From phone to job completion, everything was pleasant and remarkable. They were very accommodating by juggling the scheduling around Hurricane Irene's wake when I had no electricity by first appointment. But they fit me in as soon as I regained power. Fortune shows it's face in mysterious ways. I am very impressed.
