What questions to ask of your Chimney Sweep Company

To add abit of information to yesterdays post, I would like to provide some questions that people can ask of their chimney sweeps that may provide some help should they feel pressured into purchasing an expensive service.

Firstly before anyone hires a chimney sweep always ask for:

  • References
  • License
  • Insurance
  • How long they have been in business
  • Website info

In many situations a chimney sweep company will perform the cleaning service then afterwards will advise their clients they need additional services. These services could be a Bolton ma chimney repair such as repointing, crown repair, metal flue liners or in severe situations chimney replacement.

If your service technician advises you need one of these repairs, insist they provide you with pictures of the damage. Most reputable chimney sweeps have cameras they can lower inside the chimney to take pictures or videos of damaged flue tiles as well.
At JB Mohler Masonry we dont provide chimney sweeping services, nor do we install metal liners. I am only providing my opinion on chimney sweeping because I feel in some situations people are deceived on the services they are sold.
