Professional & Friendly
After buying a new house, my wife and I didn't know much about our fireplace and chimney. Tom came up to Ames to inspect and clean our chimney. He was prompt, professional, and friendly--our dog, who is a good judge of character, really liked him too! He gave us a lot of great information, talking us through how to best use our fireplace, and he left us feeling confident that we'll be able to enjoy our nice fires during the cold seasons for years to come! He also helped me understand what issues we might have with the unused, boarded-up fireplace in the basement and promised to come take a look at it this winter in the event that we want to get it in workable condition too.I'm really pleased with the service we received, and now I know who I'm going to call for yearly service or for any problems! Thanks, Tom, for all your help!  I'll be passing on your name to friends!
