I had contacted a few fireplace design companies to have service performed on the gas fireplace in the home I recently purchased. American Chimney replied promptly to express regrets that they did not service the gas-fired type. It's hard to get a reply from a tradesperson even when they can do the work, so I was happy with the reply. The best part is I wrote back to ask if they could recommend a ...

Pablo came out and had a drone that took photos of the rear and side of the chimney that required repairs. The crew arrived as stated and went to work. There was a lot of repairs required and they finished the same day. I'm a large commercial building contractor . and they exceeded my expectations. I was surprised at the low cost for this work. I strongly recommend them for any type of chimney wor...

The entire process was Grade A. I received a call within hours after submitting my request for chimney service and they were knocking on my door in a couple of days. Doug is a true professional and explained what exactly had to be done. Installers were excellent also. Explained process and clean up was superb. Would highly recommend American Chimney.

Doug came out to inspect and was very honest. Said that the install looked to be done correctly and that he did not see any issues with the stove. He did not try and upsell anything and actually did not charge for the inspection. When i reached out with some of the info he requested, he said that he thinks it can be used now and there is no need for anything from them currently. Hard to find hones...

Doug explained that this was a common problem in older fireplaces and that it was easy to fix. He gave us an estimate and scheduled the work immediately. Michael and the crew arrived promptly and cleaned the chimney flue of crumbling and loose tiles, installed a chimney lining system with insulation, fixed the smoke chamber and did few additional necessary repairs. Michael explained and showed the...
