Recent Chimney Sweep Reviews in Horseheads
- Ely Stokes Inc. Chimney, Fireplace & MasonrySome confusion about the time/date of the appointment and it got cancelled by the office staff the first time around. Technician was late to arrive but friendly and thorough.
- ITHACA STOVE WORKSI called them in to do a chimney sweep. I had never had one performed in the 15 years we've lived in our 22 year-old home and I expected a mess. The tech arrived as scheduled, took one quick look up the flue, and could tell immediately that it was spotless and did not require a full service cleaning. He explained that the newer, external chimneys were very tolerant to build up. He performed a cursory external inspection to confirm no cracking or other problems, and was done. Quick, honest, professional service. They easily could have performed and charged me for a full cleaning. INstead, I was only charged for a visit, and no unnecessary services
- Wulfs Chimneys & VentingThe provider did a nice job sweeping the chimney. He was very professional, answered all my questions and kept the project area clean. During the cleaning process, he did not climb on the roof to ensure the chimney was in good condition - but I did not request it. I gained a lot of confidence in Wulf and would use him again for sweeping and would likely call him if any repairs are required
- ITHACA STOVE WORKSI have been using Ithaca Stove Works for a number of years and I like their work. I will continue to use them for my chimney cleaning needs.
- Countryside Stove ShopUsed them for the past 4-5 years. It has been excellent service. Always on time, do a quick job, and it is done well.
- ITHACA STOVE WORKSHe was very punctual and thorough. I asked him questions about the morter and the functioning of the fireplace. He gave complete explinations and even told me the best way to make a fire.
- Betsy R Cleveland Chimney SwpEvery year she sends me a little card. She’s great. Two months ago, she didn’t charge me anything because the chimney didn’t need to be clean. She’s really good. Every year, she notifies you when it’s time to have the chimney clean via mail. She does other things. They are punctual. For ten and a half years, I have not had them not come the day and time they said they were coming. I've used them for ten and a half years
- R L BREEN PAINTING & RSTRTN COBob came out to inspect the chimneys in the house I recently purchased. The existing wood stove chimney and existing wood stove were very unsafe! Bob suggested a local company (Phelps Cement Products) that was having a great sale on wood stoves, and arranged with the owner for us to get the sale price even though the sale was over! Bob advised me on how to repair my old stove (If I really wanted to) and advised me on removing paint, restoring some plaster and refinishing my wood floors (above and beyond service!) Bob re-lined my wood stove chimney (a BIG job $2600). A very knowledgeable honest and professional man. I highly recommend him
- Broom Hilda's House CleaningWe have used Broom Hilda for chimney cleaning for over 25 years. They have always been punctual, thorough and very professional. Daryl takes time to answer any questions I have. I find the cost high, but it is comparable, if not slightly lower, than other professsional chimney sweeps in the area.
- Broom Hilda's House CleaningThey did a perfectly acceptable job. They showed up on time. They did the work. They were very straightforward.

We take Visa, MC, AmeRecent Review:We were doing this work through the demands of our home insurance company and so needed to have it done in the winter, even though winter is not a good time to have any kind of patch put on the chimney. We got estimates from several contractors, both individuals and companies and felt that the explanation and price offered by Jeffery Kells with Hearth and Home was reasonable and his willingness and availability to do the work promptly sealed the deal. The quality of the work and the punctuality and courtesy with which it was performed were very good. <br /> My only complaints are with Hearth and Home the company, rather than the people who completed the work. Firstly, Hearth and Home charged us $108 for a visit that I thought was just an estimate. This is not good. If you are going to charge clients for a visit, that should be clear at the time the appointment is made, not after the fact. Secondly, after charging us, we did not hear back from Hearth and Home until WE called them asking for the estimate for the work. <br /> But, as I mentioned, these complaints have to do with the business end of things with Hearth and Home. I would recommend Jeffery Kells as a contractor without hesitation. <br /John W.

They were a half hour later than that. I had to leave for work, and couldn't wait around for them all morning. <br /> I've since received a whiny text message complaining about how we should have more concern for small businesses in our local area. I am just amazed by the arrogance of such a comment. <br /> These people are hilariously unprofessional. I would never let them anywhere near my home. <br /Ed K.
