We got 4 bids for our fireplace. Read some good and some bad reviews of all of them. Fireplace Freddie topped the bids price wise, but negotiated down a bit after we said we would paint. Once we signed the contract, they showed up right on time the next day to start the job and the demo went well. Once that was done, work slowed to a crawl and we could not seem to find out who was in charge of our...

They came on time and completed the work as agreed to. They were excellent about cleaning up and checking their work. A few days later, another representative of the company came by to do a quality check on the work done. I highly recommend Fireplace Freddie

Description of Work
Our chimney was damaged by a falling tree limb. I called to schedule a repair. Fireplace Freddie came out promptly to give a estimate. It was reasonable and I scheduled the repair. I've used Fireplace Freddie before to recondition our chimney so I was familiar with their work and pricing.

READ THIS BEFORE YOU HIRE THIS COMPANY. I had these guys out 2 days ago to inspect our fireplaces and tell me what needs to be done to get them up to code and working. I know that it needs work. I was told that when we bought the house. Not a surprise. We've never lit a fire in either fireplace. I will not go into every detail but I will tell you my quote: $8,920. Nope not to run new pipes or anyt...

This review is seventeen months in the making... In the two years after buying a house, I?ve done extensive projects, from plumbing and electrical to replacing the entire house foundation. I?ve worked with various companies but I?ve never experienced such an astonishing lack of skill, management, quality, efficiency, and communication as I have with FIREPLACE FREDDIE; so much so, I almost think th...

I called up the office explained the situation with the "collapsed" Fireplace?they suggested an inspection and then I would get a quote for the repair. The inspector that came was rude and condescending and actually was annoyed that this request happened during the holiday week. I never received the inspection report, nor pictures. However, 2 weeks later they did send a quote of $50K for the repairs. In the meantime 3 other companies had come and the most the other quotes came in at were $19K. All 3 other companies included the full inspections report with pictures and explanations of the repairs. Unfortunately I would NOT recommend this company?I had high hopes from all the previous great remarks when I was searching on Angies list. I've never had to leave a bad review on Angies list?this is my first and I hope my last.

Very professional and conscientious, all the workers that came into my home treated it like their own

Description of Work
These professionals did an inspection prior to me buying a home and I hired them to repair two dangerous fireplaces, after closing. At the end of the job-the fireplaces look like new! They did a wonderful job while keeping my home clean!

Excelent work and expertise all around. From the first inspection I had a good feeling about them. This is not a company out to make a quick buck on the latest home improvement fad. This is a company of fireplace experts with a passion for preservation and repairs. The work istself took about a week. Some of the special cement used to repair the flue tiles was on special order from the east coast. All materials they used were from the US. They knew what they were doing. You should contact them if you love your fireplace and want it cleaned or repaired properly. I would not hesitate to use them in the future. A few weeks after the repairs are done, the lead inspector comes back out to do another thorough review, with cameras and all. He will fix anything that is not 100% to his liking. This company IS the real deal.

Description of Work
I had two chimneys repaired on a house I purchased that was built in 1965. Both needed extensive work as they had cracked fireboxes and extensive rust pop and brick displacement externally. My home inspector kind of identified the issues but didn't think they were too bad. I had Fireplace Freddie do a full inspection during the due diligence period. They did a very throrough job with the inspection, spending over three hours at the house. A detailed remediation plan was provided, with options to do extensive work or just the most pressing necessities. I opted to have both fixed thouroughly. The work included lining the fireboxes with a special cement as they both had cracks, cleaning the fireplaces thorougly, reseting several courses of bricks externally, replacing the mortor caps, installing chimney caps, and redoing the bricks at the bottom of the chimney. The even mixed color into the mortor used to set some of the original bricks that were cracked due to "rust pop" - the situation that happens when water enters the brickwork due to a cracked mortor cap. All the damage was expertly repaired. One of the selling point of this house to me was the beautiful chimneys,and they did an excellent job with them.
