Description

Professional Chimney Services was established in 1986 and is a basic family owned and operated business offering a variety of chimney services at a very affordable price to the Schenectady, New York area. Serving the capital district of NY, we do it all when it comes to chimneys. No amount of chimney work is too tough or too small for us to handle. We are fully insured with workers compensation and liability. Our goal is to perform the highest quality of work, leaving the customer telling their co-workers, friends, and relatives about us. Many homeowners may not be aware that the chimney's interior, when not maintained, will decay and break down - just like neglecting your teeth and not having them checked annually may result in cavities. It's the same thing with your chimney. The incomplete by product of combustion is soot, which contains carbon and sulphur. Sulphur, when mixed with rain water (from a missing rain cap) or moisture from the flue gases themselves is absorbed into the flue tile and starts a deteriorating process called flaking or spalling. Just like tartar on your teeth, annual brushing will remove these soot deposits and keep the deterioration process to a minimum. Annual visual inspection by Professional Chimney Services will find these problems and give you recommended corrective actions. When we arrive at your home to do the annual visual inspection and sweeping of the chimney, we will set up our equipment (vacuum, etc.), remove and inspect the connector pipes (the pipes from the oil furnace to the chimney) - careful as not to spill soot into the home. The chimney connector will be cleaned and closed off so that when the chimney is swept, no soot will enter the home. A visual inspection of the exterior chimney will be made, the chimney swept, and then the interior of the chimney inspected for deterioration and soundness. The sweep completes the exterior work and next returns inside and removes the soot that was brushed down the chimney. When the connector pipes are re-installed, the furnace will be restarted and checked for proper chimney draft....

The work was done as agreed. The worker was professional, made changes when we asked, and did more than expected. The owner came and verified that we were satisfied before his worker left the site. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again.

From my first call to Doug I felt completely confident in his knowledge and expertise with my chimney issues. He listened to my concerns and spent quite some time on that first call with me. The work was able to be done fairly soon after. His pricing was fair and he and his coworker were friendly, punctual and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone for any chimney issues.
