Service

Several years ago I needed to have a dead bird removed from the chimney. As a result of that (neat and efficient job) I learned that the inside of the chimney was deteriorating, and a liner would solve the problems. Dave patiently showed me the 'inside' of the odd, angled chimney, and explained what was needed to make it safe and structurally sound. Then they did the job for a fair price (I had other estimates who said it couldn't be done, and/or quoted higher prices). A few weeks ago, in a different house, we had a squirrel come down the chimney, so I called ATec again, knowing they were reliable and fair. Dave and his partner did a safety inspection and installed a high quality cap which can be operated from the fireplace, will prevent other critters from coming in, and prevent heat loss. Only wish I had thought to ask them to get the squirrel out, but hadn't checked the website, because I had their number in my phone.

Dave and his team did a fantastic job correcting issues with our chimney. They did an excellent job identifying and explaining the problems. They arrived on the scheduled day to fix the problems which they did quickly and efficiently. All issues were corrected at a very competitive price. Everything was left totally clean as if they hadn't even been here. We are very satisfied with their service and strongly recommend them.

Terrible company to work with. Asked for inspection, told to completely demolish the fireplace and start over. Got an $18k non itemized quote on the spot to replace the fireplace. Had three inspections since, all three said it can be repaired. Quotes coming in around $3k. Looks like they’re just trying to sell rebuild jobs

This is a pretty disingenuous review. You called us to do a safety inspection which found that the chimneys foundation was completely split in the basement from the floor all the way to your ceiling and was being hidden with a large sheet of plastic to cover it up. Entire wooden forms were left inside the chimney and built directly underneath and into the fireplace's hearth by the original mason creating a fire hazard. Not only that but both sides of your fireplaces brick facade were split wide open and pulling away from the fireplace due to the sinking chimney foundation which was opening up cavity exposing it your combustible wooden wall. Additionally the top of your chimney from the roofline up was in poor shape with the mortar crumbling and the top courses entirely dry set. You wanted us not only to entirely pull out and remove the existing fireplace heatilator but to rebuild a new and larger masonry fireplace which would need much larger flues to support it it’s increased size. With all of this together you were told that to do it properly it would make far more sense to pull it down and rebuild the foundation or any work we would do would be undone by an unstable foundation that is currently split in two. I don’t know what type of quotes you are getting for $3,000 but they are likely overlooking the entire structural aspect of the chimney. You called us for an inspection, and were shown what was wrong. If you don’t like the quote or do not want that amount of work to be done then that’s fine as it is your choice as a home owner but to create a review that disparages us for pointing out these Major structural and fire safety issues in your chimney is nonsense. There is no repair for $3,000 that can address what was happening, just patch work cover ups or entirely ignoring the major issues that other companies are apparently willing to over look to take work in place of liability. We plan to still be in business ten years from now and do our work by the book.

Excellent service, competitive pricing, and very professional --ATec is all around the best choice in chimney maintenance and/or repair service.

Dave and his crew just rebuilt our chimney. It ended up needing more work than anticipated. They went above and beyond and did what it needed without changing the quoted price. They were very professional, efficient and clean. Highly recommend!

Had them rebuild our chimney which was in disaray. They showed up and got right to work and the chimney is as good as new. The boys were courtiuos and cleaned up after themselves. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to get their chimney serviced.

Just had Steven out to give us...

Just had Steven out to give us an estimate as we were needing to compare quotes for work recommended by another company that we had give us an inspection last year. This was our third quote as the first company quoted $5,950.00 in repairs and the second quoted $5,000 even. Steven went over the entire chimney with us in detail and let us know that the vast majority of these repairs were not needed. Our clay liner had no cracks as we were previously told and the chimney did not need to be rebuilt. They only recommended getting a new cement crown and installing cap. In all the repairs that we were expecting to be in the thousands were only a few hundred. Thanks for being honest with us, something I certainly can't say about the other two companies we contacted.

A-tec Chimney Sweep did a wond...

A-tec Chimney Sweep did a wonderful job tearing down my chimney and fireplace and rebuilding from the ground up. They were professional, clean, informative and truly went above and beyond. Jonathan and Dave were easy to contact and work things out with. I would recommend this company for anything that had to do with a chimney.

great service

I have dealt with several chimney companies, and this is the best by far. David, who came to our house, was very helful, professional, honest and gave us excellent advice unlike the other two companies, including ""Chimney Sweeps"", who were just trying to rip us off and overcharge by concealing information on what really needs to be done, and, most importantly, what DOESN'T. I would highly recommend A-Tec Chimney Sweep to anyone and will be using their services again for sure.

They were very professional and detailed in their explaination of the inner workings of the chimney

They were very good in diagnosing and repairing the problem -- I'll call them again if I should have chimney issues in the future.

Prompt, competent and guess what? They answer the phone!

So I called 4 different chimney cleaning companies before I reached a live person. I scheduled an appointment, they showed up early and did the work that I asked. Novel business idea. Thanks A-Tec Chimney

Very Satisfied with mason work

Very Satisfied It's nice to work with the owner and proprietor directly on a job like this where the gap of my knowledge to chimney expertise is vast. David was out on a Monday and by Thursday he already had a mason crew on site and a chimney rebuilt. There were many expensive options on the table but Randall was very helpful in directing me how to do some work to significantly cut my costs down. Highly recommended for chimney maintenance and repair.

Highly recommended.

Wow! These guys were available to do the job the same day we called. They arrived promptly and completed the job despite some rainy weather and even left the house spotless (had cleaning and inspection done). Took the time to explain what was going to be done before it was done. Very respectful, professional, and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

I'd give 6 stars but it's not an option

This Chimney Sweep was easy to deal with. Was immediately available for an appointment, and flexible. Did a thorough inspection and cleaning of our 2 chimneys and good explanation of what was needed. Luckily only a chimney sweep. Will use again.
