Fixed my chimney cap that blew off in a windstorm. Fast, efficient and showed me photos of where my chimney mortar was eroding so I could plan for a repair job. Recommend.Original recommendation
Our family is dedicated to using local, family run businesses. Excel Chimney and Fireplace Service is just that. Dick, the owner, is one of those amazing type of men that remind me of my father: honest, polite, helpful and knowledgeable to name but a few. Dick and his crew did masonry/point and tuck work for us that allowed us to keep our existing chimney with an architectural top. Work is top notch. And because Excel chooses to rely on word-of-mouth instead of glitzy advertising and custom-made, fancy bidding portfolios, Dick's prices don't have to include advertising product and design fees. Also, Dick was recommended by both two other masons who were too busy and our roofer, Aza of Mountain Goat Roofing. They know who's good and said Dick is one of the best ever. Our family agrees.Original recommendation
I had a great experience working with Dick and his crew. I reached out to a few companies for quotes and ultimately chose Excel Chimney to work with. I appreciated that Dick came over to our house and gave us an estimate on the work - one of the other companies I contacted was going to charge a $95 fee just to come over to the house for an initial review, which I thought was crazy.Original recommendation
Besides a standard chimney sweep and cleanout, I also needed to get part of the interior of our fireplace repaired. When the cement dried, it left quite a bit of cracking - I later learned this is normal especially for this repair in particular. So, while it was slightly annoying to keep scheduling followup appointments to finish the work, Dick's crew came over two additional times until the fireplace was fully repaired and for no additional cost.
We were also working with a fairly tight timeline that they were able to meet - thanks!

My chimney cap blew off during a windstorm. Dick called me right back, came over the next day and inspected my chimney. He had to get parts, so scheduled for the following day to do the repairs. Quick, courteous, on time, and Fixed. what more could I ask for? Recommend Highly.Original recommendation
