This company came out because our fireplace would turn on but then after a couple of minutes it would turn itself off. Their technicians arrived around 8:10 in the morning as scheduled. They cleaned our fireplace. We told them that our remote for the fireplace was no longer working. We were told that the company that installed our fireplace is out of business and that parts are no longer available...

We visited the Lisle showroom several times & received very helpful information and explanations about the products from Adam McMahon . Our order came in 4 weeks later as expected.

We purchased a gas fireplace insert with logs and a remote start in December of 2017. Th total price was approximately $2,400.00. They did everything as contracted and we have been happy with the purchase with the only proviso that the installers kept trying to sell us other services like duct cleaning and tuck pointing and when I declined, they seemed a little annoyed. A week ago (11-07-2018) the...

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

Dear Mr [Member Name Removed], It is unfortunate that our technician was unable to explain himself clearly or that his information was missed upon completion of the service call. Upon his arrival, he visually inspected the entire burner system to evaluate the possible cause of the problem. This included inspection and cleaning of the eight (8) logs, adding embers to the burner system for aesthetic...

Bernard told us that everything looked so good that he didn't have to do any cleaning and that it would only cost $85.00 instead of $129.00 saving us some money. He also checked the chimney and discovered that the storm collar was cracked and needed to be replaced. He took pictures of the collar to show me. Overall a great experience!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
General inspection before the heating season.

They gave me a price to inspect the fireplace. I asked for an appointment. I gave him my address, and Joseph states they don't do Kankakee County. I told him the web page states, we install and repair in Kankakee County and surrounding areas. Joseph states that the job is too small, and they don't have anybody to come this far. I asked for the manager, Joseph states that what the manager said. I a...

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

Dear [Member Name Removed], We apologize if our sales staff was unclear in their conversation with you. We certainly do service Kankakee County. However, we do not have routes scheduled every day in that area. Perhaps Joseph misunderstood you and thought that you were looking for a specific date. Either way, it is not our intention to upset any customer. We thank you for taking the time to let us ...
