The provider's written estimate was much more expensive than what we had discussed in person. I inquired as to why the price had increased and asked from an itemized estimate. The provider was very slow to respond and never provided the requested itemized estimate. I believe the provider uses low estimates in person to secure the $85 service fee, then increases the estimate later to recoup the cos...

Description of Work
The provider came to my house to assess the roof for repairs after a small leak this winter. I was impressed when he told me that we did not need to replace the whole roof, but only the affected section. He gave me a "ballpark estimate" of the costs and told me that a formal estimate would follow. He charged $85 for the inspection, which he said he would refund when the contract was signed.

Chicago Chimney did a very poor job. The fireplace box caved in on itself the day after it was done. They did come out to fix it. Shortly after that, the chain for the damper pulled out of the wall - my husband fixed that. This past summer while having a simple chimney sweep done by a different company (found on Angie's List with hundreds of A's), we were informed of numerous holes in and above th...

BEWARE.......Were a no show on 7 different occasions since January 2014. I paid 2/3 of the job and all they did was tear up my walls, cabinetry and flooring and would not complete the installation. The city has fined them. I will have to find a different contractor to complete and clean up this mess. The absolute WORST company I have ever dealt with. They are the reason I joined Angie's List - for...

Description of Work
I called because my flue would not close and they said I needed to replace entire unit. They ordered one said they would have to take down brick, mantel etc. and would replace once unit was installed. They did take down shelving, mantel, brick and replaced unit (incorrectly and would not pass inspection). They would not continue the job and I am left with a torn up wall, floor and a hole in my wall.

I WILL BE POSTING ANOTHER REVIEW WITH THE SAME INFORMATION UNDER CHIMNEY EXPERTS TO ENSURE THE PEOPLE BEHIND THIS COMPANY ARE IDENTIFIED TO MY FELLOW HOMEOWNERS!!!

Description of Work
BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!!!! THEY HAVE ALSO USED THE NAME OF CHIMNEY EXPERTS. As Universal Chimney, they had done some work for me about three years ago; the work was fair. They happened to call me up recently to see if I could use any more chimney work. I asked them to come out and fix their previous work and/or provide an estimate on some new work. They came out, gave me an estimate on a new liner and cap for my chimney which would fix their previous mistake and my new problem. Plus, they were going to give me some credit from their previous work as good faith. I was very pleased with this. After they left, however, my wife and I decided to put this off until the fall due to not being employed at this time. I called them up, explained the situation and asked them to send me back my deposit of $396. Instead they deposited the check, will not return the funds and will not return my calls. As such, I still have the original problem that they created and a new one that will still have to be fixed. I am very blessed with a good ear for voices and can almost always identify someone by only hearing them speak. I just called them up looking for Joe who had identified himself as the Manager, but not the owner, in a previous conversation (his office admin identified him as the Owner in another call to the company) and he now identified himself as Henry and indicated Joe was not in. I left a message for Joe again but fully expect that this money is lost. At this time, I have water coming into my home from the inside of the chimney. It is damaging my walls and I will have to shell out more money for another company all while being unemployed in a bad economy!!!
