I called this guy (recommended by a friend?) at the beginning of November to get my chimney cleaned. I told him where I lived and gave the specific town and directions. He quoted a price and said he would be there on 11/17. He called the night before at 930pm and said he would need to reschedule for 2 weeks later. ( i think he realized how far it was to drive and was attempting to get the appointment cancelled) I said okay because the chimney needed to be cleaned. He called the day of the appointment and asked if I still needed to get the chimney cleaned. I said yes. He shows up and proceeds to tell me he drove 40 miles one way and it would be an 80 mile round trip for him. Basically he was telling me not to call him again and this was an inconvenience to him. . That didnt inspire any confidence in his services and I asked him if he was going to stick by the price he quoted over the phone at the beginning of November. He said he would because he said it was what a "good contractor" does. My question is why he didn't say it was too far to drive to clean a chimney in the 1st place and I would have found someone else to clean it out instead of waiting nearly a month to listen to his complaints. Plus the weather was very bad, and I'm sure that didnt make him happy. He cleaned the chimney and the stovepipe but in the process messed up the flue. I'm still trying to fix it. I wouldnt recommend him if you live far away or like to listen to complaining. Other than that, he didnt leave a mess.

Everyone I know uses this guy and that's because he is the only local chimney sweep in the area. But he does a good job so that I don't mind. It's important to book him before you get into heating season because as you can imagine many people wait to the last minute. George also can make repairs in fire places. He replaced a flue crank that had broken off in my fire place and did an excellent job. The most important thing is that George is clean. He doesn't track this black junk all through your house but lays down mat even from your fire place to the front door in case he has to go back to his truck.
