Yes, there are pretenders in every business. But the true professionals always rise to the top, and have longevity. Here are a few tips you should know before choosing a chimney company.
Make sure you are using a company that has been around for years. Bad reputation spreads quickly. If the company you choose has been around a while will be able to search for information online about the company and if there are many bad reviews you will find them.
Make sure they are licensed and insured. If they are like my company we disclose that information on every page of our website. We are legitimate and we want everyone to know and be able to check us out.
Take a look at the equipment. Vans and Trucks are a good reflection of the business. At Always Affordable we have our vehicles professionally painted with our logos. We invest the money to spread the news. We are not hiding behind a rock, when we are doing a job we are proud of our work and we want everyone to know who we are.
Make sure your chimney cleaning company is full service. Anyone can learn to clean a chimney.... but if the company you choose also provides other types of chimney services, you can feel more assured that they have the experience and the business sense to do a good job at a fair price. Gaining a loyal customer leads to future work. Chimney repairs, masonry, liner replacement and other more involved and specialized work.
