Chimmey Sweep

(3 lists)
    2012
  • M. Todd Lewis NFI certified TnT Quality Services 706-401-3348
  • "I can affirm Dale with Alpha Chimney Sweeps. He and his son did my Mom's four-flue chimney (on a 3-story house) this past year and only charged her $100. They did a thorough inspection, gave us tips & suggestions, and very nice, helpful and professional. Visit http://www.alphachimneysweeps.net/ for details and contact Dale at 678-906-7013.
  • I had an unsatisfactory experience with A Advanced out of Winder and TNT Quality Service (Todd Lewis).

    We had a bad experience with D.J. Reeves d/b/a A Advanced Chimney Service. Today when I checked the Better Business Bureau I found their company rating is C- due to previous unresolved complaints. A Advanced Chimney Service of Winder GA did not do the job as promised, they tried to double their fee on site, then offered to waive it if my mother would spend $4200 with them on a new chimney liner. (Though she had just had the chimney relined in October 2009 by another company.)"

  • It was after the A Advanced nightmare that we hired Dale with Alpha Chimney Sweeps.

  • I just used 'Original Chimney Sweeper' - 706 353-0561. They were backlogged two weeks, but they showed up when scheduled and did a clean, professional job
    2011
  • In December we used Dale at Alpha Chimney Sweeps, Inc. out of Conyers http://www.alphachimneysweeps.net. He's a member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild. We have a one-story house on Athen's eastside. We were quoted a base price of $149 if there were no problems (we forgot to request an inspection when we moved in a few years ago, and only used it a few time because we were afraid of what buildup there may have been). We were only charged $89 when he came, because there wasn't much to clean out. He did go up on the roof, inspect everything, gave us tips, was very nice, very helpful and professional. Would highly recommend. Phone is 678-906-7013.
  • I have used the Original Chimney Sweep a couple of times over the years - always been satisfied with his work. He has cleaned our chimney and installed a cap. John something is his name maybe? number 706-769-5880
  • I recommend The Original Chimney Sweep from Watkinsville. The young man that owns this business is a Terry College graduate and very up front and honest. He came when he said he would and did what he was supposed to do.
12/10 Just used Dale at Alpha Chimney Sweeps, Inc. out of Conyers http://www.alphachimneysweeps.net/ Member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild. We have a one-story house on Athen's eastside.

I'm posting this for the many who replied to me asking for the same information. I rec'd two responses with recommendation and they were both for the same company.
The company information and the individual comments are listed below.

    A Advanced Chimney Service
    108 Alexander Street, Winder, GA 30680-1614 (770) 601-8918 aadvancedchimneyservice.com

  • They are professional, prompt, and always clean. They may be a little more expensive (not appreciably so)
    but their knowledge and service is unsurpassed.
  • Very thorough, very professional and I can't remember if they charged 125 or 150. (Responder #2's comment)

I called the company and have them scheduled this week, so I'll post a follow up after their service.
Over the telephone the person was prompt and professional.
As for price, she quoted me $225 to clean & perform an 18-point inspection of a four flue chimney on
a 3-story home and also clean and inspect the home's wood burning circulator.

The other week I posted a request for recommendation on chimney cleaning service. I'm writing today to post a word of caution about A Advanced Chimney Service of Winder GA. The company is D.J. Reeves d/b/a A Advanced Chimney Service. We had a horrible experience and I feel they tried to scam my elderly mother. Today when I checked the Better Business Bureau I found their company rating is C- due to previous unresolved complaints.

No need to go into all of the ugly details here but I did want to get a word of caution out there to others who may need to hire a chimney sweep. A Advanced Chimney Service of Winder GA did not do the job as promised, they tried to double their fee on site, then offered to waive it if my mother would spend $4200 with them on a new chimney liner. (Though she had just had the chimney relined in October 2009 by another company.)

  • I had a similiar experience with them last year.
  • My daughter used AAdvanced and had her chimney cleaned and inspected. She was happy with that part, but was quoted an exorbitant amount for repairing. She opted to go with a company from Norcross for the repairs and it was a lot cheaper. She said she thinks the name of the place was Ace Fireplace in Norcross. They also do inspections, but she was very happy with the repairs…and it was a LOT cheaper. She's going to double check the name of the place when she gets home.
    Try calling LD Services; their number is 770-851-0880.
