Unlike many other chimney sweep companies, they offered a separate inspection and sweep cost. Other companies try to bundle the service, insisting that you need a sweep every time. Our tech was very informative and took the time to talk to us about proactive measures and discuss the process of chimeny inspecting/sweeping in general. They had a fair price in comparison to other companies and are also listed on the www.csia.org site as on officially certified chimney sweep. I will definitly be using them again!
