I am a Realtor and I first phoned Rick to get an estimate for work on a chimney for a client of mine. Rick was prompt, courteous and clearly knowledgeable. My client hired him on the spot and Rick was able to complete the work to the satisfaction of all parties very quickly. I followed up by having Rick come inspect and clean my own chimney and I have been more than happy to pass his information along to both clients and other agents I work with. Rick is fantastic!

It is so nice to get a contracter that actually does what they say! He shows up on time, does the services he says he will perform and is so meticulous about it.

Rick has cleaned our chimney two or three times in the 12 years we've lived in our current home. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. Rick shows up on time, does excellent work at a reasonable price, and we couldn't be happier!

Very impressed with Rick's service. Clean, professional and our fireplace has never been cleaner. The best part is knowing our fireplace and masonry is SAFE since Rick checks it all. I'm happy we found Rick and my husband didn't have to go up on the roof to clean this year. We look forward to having Rick be "our chimney" guy and have already started referring him to our friends and family.
