Let Our Customers Speak to You

This is the way SERVICE should be. I called for an appointment and a date was set, the representative for American Chimney explained exactly what they would do to clean and light/repair my gas fire logs and the price. They showed up timely, and did exactly what was promised. Best service and I highly recommend them! Very dependable and personable.

They did a wonderful job! Very easy to contact and get appointments scheduled! They answered all my questions and were very sweet to my young kids at home explaining to them what they were doing! Will use in future when I need to upgrade my fireplace!

Previously set appointment and needed to cancel. Office staff was friendly and very helpful, especially on time of service. Service tech called ahead, arrived on time, was neat and very pleasant during the service. Will continue to utilize AC on any future chimney needs

Matt and the team at American Chimney were great. We had a 5 day job on a 45 ft chimney, inserting 2 liners and putting a custom cap on. They provided us ETAs when they were headed our way, updated us 2x each day on the project status, fielded our questions, and maintained a clean, safe job site. Hannah and Dan back at the office kept us apprised as well and were always polite and professional. Because of the height of our chimney, several companies turned us down. Not only did American Chimney take the job, the owner (Clay), prior to our signing a contract, fielded our many questions without pressure. I'm super impressed.

American Chimney Sweep and Masonry came to our home today to conduct an inspection to see where water could be entering our house around our chimney. The team that came out was thorough, knowledgeable, and efficient, fixing possible sources of water entry immediately and providing estimates on other chimney repair work and maintenance. I was impressed with their expertise and desire to fix the problem!

American Chimney has been maintaining our chimney for over 20 years. In addition to yearly cleanings, ACSM installed a liner after a chimney fire, which has been maintained well. A few words come to mind when I reflect on my experiences: satisfied, professional, sound advice, and value.ACSM employees are professional, courteous, receptive, and treat their customers with respect. Tim supervised our most recent cleaning and review. He was informative, professional and makes the customer feel important. American Chimney Sweep and Masonry is one solid company. Thanks.

My son is in the process of purchasing his first home; after the home inspection showed possible issues with the fireplace he called American Chimney to have a full inspection and chimney sweep. Tim met me at the house (my son was unable to attend due to work obligations) and walked me through the inspection explaining exactly what were the issues and what items needed attention. He then spoke with my son on the phone! To me, that is above and beyond great service. The report and photos were then emailed later that day. Great service, thorough inspection and great customer service!

Tim came out today to inspect and clean our chimney. He discovered a large (and expensive) issue and provided exceptional information, advice and outstanding service. He helped me map out a plan to get the issue resolved and provided great information about other possible fireplace options. I could not have been more pleased with the service call. Thank you!

I contacted American Chimney based on online reviews after a no show from another company that had been recommended to me. I wish I had read the reviews and contacted American Chimney first. They are so professional and Tim who came out was wonderful. He thoroughly explained what he saw was going on along with pictures that he had taken. I would contact this company first and save yourself a whole lot of frustration.

Reliable, trustworthy and did a fabulous job! Our chimney was in need of a really good cleaning and trying to find a reputable company wasn't easy. Our neighbor recommended American Chimney, they were able to come out quickly and clean and inspect our chimney. We were concerned about issues we were having and Tim used a camera and inspected everything then did a fabulous job explaining what he recommended we do to fix it without trying to oversell us. Tim also did a fabulous job cleaning the chimney, he was professional and cleaned up all the mess before leaving. We will be using them in the future and also recommending them to friends and family.

Tim called before arriving to let us know that he was on his way. Be reviewed the issue we were having and made several recommendations.

Tim conducted my chimney inspection this morning. His thoroughness and professionalism are Top Drawer. He explained everything to me as he did the inspection, showed me the video as he reviewed the condition of the chimney. He found cracks and evidence of a prior chimney fire and I could see them as he found them. Outstandingly credible customer service provided. Tim is also very personable as he does the work and explains the outcomes of the inspection in a clear and concise manner. He will provide me with an estimate to do the repair work w/i 3 business days. I will call my insurance company today and forward the detailed report and picture he provided. Paul Lohr

Just have to say that Tim and his crew from American Chimney did an excellent job replacing our chimney crown and liner. They are efficient, friendly, customer centered, and neat. The repairs were done swiftly - and in the inclement weather of the dead of winter! Definitely will do business with American Chimney in the future.

Our service person was Matt Kenton. Matt was very thorough and took his time making sure everything was right. He even went above and beyond trying to figure out a problem with the fireplace smoke getting pulled back into the house. We will definitely call American Chimney again the next time we have issues with the fireplace or schedule a cleaning. Very good work.

It has been a pleasure working with American Chimney. We were able to get a timely appointment and our service specialist was very helpful. Our serviceman Tim was amazing and kept everything extremely clean. He was very timely and cretinous. It was a pleasure to have him in our home. Thanks American Chimney for making this process seamless.

Our service man, Tim, arrived on time and ready to work. He was very friendly, polite and efficient. I appreciate that he laid down tarps on my light colored carpet to contain any dirt. He completed the job quickly and informed us of what he found and made recommendations for the proper upkeep of our chimney box. We will definitely call American chimney for our future needs.

I needed my fireplace cleaned and inspected. The serviceman, Tim B., was prompt, professional and friendly. He answered all of my questions and explained everything he was doing. He cleaned everything up and gave me post cleaning instructions, as well as tips for having a safe fire and how to diminish the smoke I sometimes get when lighting a fire. He found a few minor repairs that are needed, one of which he fixed on the spot. I highly recommend American Chimney and specifically Tim B.

I couldn't be more pleased. Tim was very professional, informative, and polite. He showed me what he was doing and why. He left the place cleaner than when he walked through the door. I now am confident we can burn a fire safely. You will get an education. I enjoyed dealing with everyone- very nice people.

Easy to make an appointment for our gas fire logs to be looked at. They called before they arrived and actually could come a little earlier. Matthew was great and knew what was wrong right away. Answered some questions we had. Cleaned up after they were done. Definitely will use them again for our routine maintenance or issues! They were wonderful!

We have been using American Chimney since we moved into our house almost 20 years ago. They have cleaned the chimney regularly, fixed some masonry issues at the top, installed a bird-proof chimney cap, and most recently replaced a cracked tile. Everyone is courteous, professional, and does a great job. We have never been disappointed in their service or results!
Wayne Barber

Scheduled a chimney cleaning with ACSM. Arrived on time (actually got a call prior to them arriving), and got right to work. They put protective tarps down to protect our floor during their work. Very satisfied with the work done.

Workers were professional and knew the answers to our questions. They immediately placed down several black covers on the living room floor as they entered to ensure that no soot soiled the carpet. They have great technology that aids them in the chimney inspection, and therefore they can really see what is going on, and what can be done to fix problems.

I've dealt with many chimney companies in the past, and American Chimney is defiantly one of the best. The work crew was amazing. They told us when they would be there and notified us when there was any changes. They were very helpful and honest. They left the chimney, and the surrounding area better than it started! I will defiantly use American Chimney Sweep again. Thank-you so much.
