We had A1 come to clean our boiler chimney through our Region Energy agreement. They came on time and were very professional, during the cleaning the tech found that the inner part of our chimney was extremely damaged. He explained the options and we agreed to have them install a new liner. They were able to do it the same day and it looks great, we would hire them again.

This company is not worth your hard earned money. The chimney liner they installed was installed crooked and looks very unprofessional. The staff at the office did nothing to correct the horrible workmanship. The Chimney cap is the biggest eyesore in the neighborhood. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. In the attached photo you can see how off center the liner is.

Unprofessional, unreliable, does follow schedule, does not provide updates on changes, does not return calls when they indicate that they will. Does not show up when they promise they will have someone on site for repairs. On warranty claims they take months to make repairs that are part of contracted warranty items. Work done on steps when first completed looked good but after 1 year they masonry...

The crew arrived on time and completed the work the same day. They were very courteous and respectful and did an excellent job. They reviewed the work with me before they left and answered all of my questions.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL, EXTREMELY UNRELIABLE, EXTREMELY UNETHICAL, AND EXTREMELY DISHONEST. We had scheduled a "Sweep and Inspect" of our two chimneys, one of the things that were stipulated by the buyers of our home. A technician came, just looked for a few minutes and said that one of our chimneys needed work that would cost $4,200 and that the other chimney d...

I find it quite interesting that you are calling my company unethical and dishonest because you want us to FALSIFY DOCUMENTS so that you can sell your home. A-1 Affordable WILL NOT, under any circumstance, provide inaccurate chimney evaluations. Your chimney simply CAN NOT be verified in its current condition

A-1 did a great job. They were helpful, explained everything fully and followed up on their work. They came to clean the chimney, saw it was damaged, showed me and explained what could be done. They were here the next day to fix all issues.

The customer service at A-1 Affordable Construction, Inc. is anything but what it promises to be. They installed my chimney sleeve on 7/18/18 and as of 12/28/18 it has yet to be inspected. Furthermore, the experiences I have had with trying to get it inspected have been infuriating in having to deal with people who seem like they do not know what they are doing. I have to constantly follow up with...

The company was recommended from the plumber we use exclusively, Paul Wylan ,Proficient Plumbing, Brick. After Paul came to look at our issue, he made contact through Kirsten in their association and relayed George's (owner A-1) number to us. We contacted George on Monday evening and they came here the next day! They were able to do the work the following morning, but we opted to wait and they ins...
