Capitol Chimney Service Maryland Reviews
“The process was very good. They came out to just clean my chimney, but went up on the roof and took pictures that showed a lot of damage. They provided me with a very reasonable estimate to repair the chimney top, put in a new damper and also a chimney cap. They were efficient, professional, and came to work on time. They also cleaned up really well afterwards.” – Kimberly F. Annapolis, MD
“All went well, The technician was professional and cleaned the dryer vent out. I would call this company again.” –Diane C. Annapolis, MD
“They cleaned and inspected my chimney and also inspected the furnace line. They told me that both my furnace and chimney were unlined and gave me an estimate for the work. I have not done it yet because it is not in my budget at the moment, but I plan to do it soon. They were punctual and closed the fireplace so as not to make a mess when cleaning the chimney. It took about 40 minutes for them to complete the whole job and inspect the chimney. The owner of the company also told me what kind of repairs I needed for the chimney and the service they provided. The price he offered me was reasonable to the market price I was offered by another company. Overall, I would hire for future jobs.” – Aster O. Baltimore, MD
“They came on time (within the window) and went straight to work. One person went on the roof to inspect the outside of the chimney, and the cover. The other came inside and cleaned out the ashes on the floor of the fireplace. He also did the actual sweeping from the inside. Afterwards they vacuumed all around the fireplace, and provided me with a written estimate for work to the inside and out of the chimney. The entire visit only took an hour or so, and I felt they were very thorough. They were also very friendly and professional.” – Michael B. Baltimore, MD
“It went great! I had four estimates. Javier from Capitol was as knowledgeable and competent as any of the other companies. Work was performed well and efficiently. It was a big job that a three-person crew (led by Javier) completed in one long day. The price was VERY reasonable; much lower than two of the other three, and Capitol offered more. Roger (owner) was also pleasant and easy to work with. I really respected the entire crew and was more than satisfied. I highly recommend giving them a chance. I am grateful that I called them! –Jason S. Baltimore, MD
“They were very honest with me and let me know an inspection was not needed based on the chimney we had. They gave us extra advice on how to light the wood stove. They were right on time and clean. There was no issue with them. ” –Bahar A. Baltimore, MD
“Our service from Capitol went very well. The employees cleaned after themselves.” Kathleen G. Berwyn Heights, MD
“They arrived on time and talked me through their inspection. I was told that because the damper did not work well, if at all, that the cleaning would be affected by the fact that they could not open the damper enough to get all the soot. I worried a bit that I might be taken advantage of (as this seems to happen a lot with other vendors), but the owner himself was on the job and seemed very trustworthy so I agreed to have the additional work done. It turned out that I got a fair price for a new damper (I researched it after the fact). I will likely use them in the future.” Sara C., Bethesda, MD
“Great Job!! Very satisfied.” Eileen H. Brookeville, MD
“Capitol Chimney Service performed a chimney sweep and cleaning of my hearth. The chimney and hearth appeared to be clean. The serviceperson showed up exactly on time and was done within half an hour.” –Ajay P. Burtonsville, MD
“We had our chimney and ash box cleaned. Capitol provided great service. Their crew was on time and even gave us a call to let us know they were on the way!” –Yolanda M. Catonsville, MD
“We made an appointment after discussing the estimate. The company dispatched workers immediately. The professionals were meticulous in their work. Also they were very conscientious of maintaining the cleanliness of our home. The procedure used in rebuilding the interior of our chimney was quick, efficient, and economical. I was expecting to come home and see my house looking like a scene from Mary Poppins! Chim-chim-iney! It wasn't. The crew installed a new stainless steel liner, new cap on chimney, and a new damper (" a spoonful of sugar...."). It went very well. The professionals came in with appropriate gear, set up a tent at the mouth of the fireplace, and used a vacuum to whisk away the soot. From intake to delivery of services, everything ran like a well-oiled machine.” –Katrina S. Cheverly, MD
“The service tech from Capitol said I didn't need a chimney cap after inspecting it, so he only charged for the sweep, which was $99. They left everything clean, brought the tarp to put down and they took off their shoes. They were very neat and organized. They were quick, did the job, cleaned up, and left. I will be calling them again in future.” Dana B. Clinton, MD
“They replaced the liner in my fireplace. It was a positive experience and I would recommend them. The first time, they were a few minutes late, but they were on time the second time. They took the time to discuss about the repairs that were needed and all the options.” –Patrice B. Colesville, MD
“Two Capitol technicians came to clean my dryer vent and did an excellent job. They cleaned all areas of the dryer as well as the opening outside the house, and turned the dryer on to make sure it was working properly. They cleaned up after themselves. The appointment fit right into my work schedule which was a great convenience to me. The technicians were on time, fast, efficient, and courteous. The price was great as well. I would use Capitol Chimney again and highly recommend to other consumers.” – Sandra E. Columbia, MD
“Capitol Chimney Service performed a chimney cleaning for our wood burning stove insert in our fireplace. They arrived on schedule, were very professional, and completed the job beyond my expectations. They explained how they cleaned the stove and advised me on what to expect for future cleanings. I was very impressed with the service performed by Capitol Chimney Service and will use them again in the future.” –Patricia A. Columbia, MD
“The crew showed up on time, kept me informed of progress, and cleaned up when finished.” Jerry E. Columbia, MD
“Capitol performed a chimney sweep on our townhouse fireplace. They were punctual, professional, and did a thorough job performing a Level 1 cleaning. They advised as to fireplace condition at the end of their service. They worked very well with our schedule and also gave us a Senior Discount.”–Charlene S. Columbia, MD
“Two professionals arrived, went right to the dryer, hooked up their equipment and did their job, cleanly, professionally, timely, and courteously. They informed me that all looked fine. There was no major blockage, but I have peace of mind because there is no fire hazard.” –Ronald Q. Crofton, MD
“Everything went smoothly. They cleaned the chimney without any hassle.” –Nancy P. Crofton, MD
“They were prompt and efficient. We would use them again. Excellent experience overall.” –Scott L. Elkridge, MD
“We got an estimate from Capitol Chimney Service to replace the smokestack on the house because it was ripped off during the derecho. We unfortunately had an old fireplace insert and, due to the construction of the unit, needed to have the entire assembly replaced. The crew had to remove the brick facade which encased the fireplace insert which ran from the floor to the ceiling in the basement and remove and replace the vent pipe that was attached to it. The crew did an excellent job of repairing the walls and matching the paint color and we are very pleased with the outcome.”
“It was a pleasure to deal with Roger and his crew. They are all very polite and respectful. Roger is very communicative and keeps you informed about what the plans are as well as anything that arises in the process. I would definitely recommend Capitol and will look to them again should we need any future work performed.” –Ernest H. Gaithersburg, MD
“They were very professional and quick. They took digital photos to show us the work and recommended we repair the chimney concrete crown as it had a large crack that was letting water in.” Bonnie B., Gaithersburg, MD
“Capitol Chimney inspected our fireplace and confirmed our suspicion that there was no problem with our firebox and proceeded to clean our chimney. They did this quickly, effectively, and efficiently. The servicemen were highly professional and courteous. The price was reasonable and was identical to the original estimate given over the phone. My wife and I were very satisfied with our entire experience with Capitol Chimney Service and do plan on using them again in the future, when it is time again in two years to perform our HOA mandated chimney inspection and cleaning—sooner if we have any issues with the fireplace before this time. We would recommend them to anyone needing fireplace inspection or cleaning.” –Lawrence W. Germantown, MD
“The workers from Capitol arrived on time. The job took two days to compete. The workers accidentally spilled a substance on my driveway and were unable to immediately remove it. The workers returned the next day and removed the substance to my satisfaction. I found my interaction with the office staff and the owner to be very pleasant. I would recommend this company to anyone who requires chimney service. They did a great job in rebuilding the structure around my chimney and I have received compliments from neighbors.” –Terry H. Glenarden, MD
“Cleaner arrived on time, was neat, clean, showed me a few tips, and gave me an estimate for additional work on the chimney that I know needs to be done. It was the best service/cleaning we have ever had! I would definitely use Capitol again.” – Dale J. Glenwood, MD
“At every point of service this company was extremely professional. The woman that scheduled our appointment was extremely friendly and helpful. She gave an arrival time window, and gave a pretty good idea of when the crew would arrive. Roger called to let me know he was 30 minutes away. He was very punctual—a plus for a contractor. Roger and Javier arrived and covered my brand new (white) carpets to avoid making a mess. They finished quickly and didn't leave a speck of dirt on the new carpets! (My price for the service reflects an Angie's List coupon.) I highly recommend Capitol Chimney.” –Diana T. Glenwood, MD
“Provided the service promptly. Did a good job.”Linda B. Hanover, MD
“They cleaned out the fireplace and chimney. We don't use our fireplace all that much, so there wasn't too much work needed, but they were very courteous, professional, punctual, neat, and fast. It was easy to schedule and we were able to get an appointment within a day or two of our call.” –Peter W. Kensington, MD
“Capitol provided chimney sweep services and did a thorough inspection of the chimney at no extra charge. They also explained a better way to ensure a smokeless, efficient fireplace fire. They left the place clean with no trace of dirt or soot. That's impressive. Price was exactly as quoted. I was very impressed with the whole experience, from start to finish. I recommend Capitol without reservation.” –Fred H. Laurel, MD
“Great company; I would recommend Capitol to my family and friends. Very smooth and quick.” –Edward M. Laurel, MD
“The serviceman from Capitol was wonderful, efficient, polite, explained what he was doing (cleaning the chimney), and left everything spotless. He noticed a small problem with the chimney cap (a spot of rust), and we may call on them for the repair. (Our cost was lower than usual because we used a special coupon.) This is a wonderful company. We will use Capitol Chimney Service, LLC, again. ” –Laura W. Laurel, MD
“The dryer vent was successfully cleaned and done in an efficient manner! On the second visit, a worker came out and patched the interior of the chimney. Again, the work was done efficiently and we were pleased with the result. They had brought the wrong chimney cap, however, so they told us they would send someone back out the next day (we knew we would not be home) and replace the chimney cap. Sure enough, we came home the next day and a new chimney cap had been installed! No complaints.” –Jessica B. Olney, MD
“Very good.” –Mike Z. Owings Mills, MD
“They cleaned our chimney. They were great; they came when they said they would, and that says a lot for companies these days. They were super clean, super-fast, and did an amazing job. Before they came out, the fireplace was black and nasty, but after about two hours, it was all clean. They were super professional, and the price was great. Thanks guys!” – Brian S. Pikesville, MD
“We have rented a house for a few years but had never used the fireplace. We decided to have an inspection and cleaning before using it. The men were punctual. One inspected the chimney from the inside, and the other went up on a ladder to check the exterior.
It turned out that there was no cleaning needed, and we can safely enjoy the fireplace. Some work was recommended (re-mortaring on the inside, replacement of the cap), and if we were the property owners we might have considered it, but we're renters. We needed peace of mind, and we got it.” –Ben F. Pikesville, MD
“Quick and easy. They came in and took care of business. Kept everything clean.” –Jose P. Potomac, MD
“I called Capitol, who was able to meet my specific service timeline. Workers came and went within the time window and cleaned up after themselves. I would use this company again.” –Sonia N. Potomac, MD
“Capitol replaced a damper and they waterproofed my chimney. It was fabulous. You can't waterproof a chimney when it rains and every single time they were scheduled, it rained. They were very nice and apologetic about it. They did a good job.” –Heather E. Potomac, MD
“The two sweeps arrived when scheduled, were very careful about not making a mess, and did a very professional job. They noted that our chimney had gone too long without being cleaned and noted that the liner should be replaced. They provided a cost estimate for the work and left a telephone number should we have any follow-up questions.
Overall, I was very pleased with the quality, promptness, and professionalism of the service.” –Laura Shane, Rockville, MD
“Capitol Chimney Service did a chimney sweep for me. I was happy with the service. We had a good experience and I would recommend them.” –James D. Rockville, MD
“Capitol gave me a phone quote which was the same as two other companies that I called, and did not try to sell unnecessary services. They arrived when they said they would on a very cold day, did the work quickly and without any fuss.” – Wilma Z. Rockville, MD
“They showed up early and did the work in a professional manner. They explained the issues and finished the job.” David S. Rockville, MD
“From the first estimate to the final wrap-up, Roger and Capitol Chimney were organized, professional, and on point for all aspects related to tearing down and rebuilding the chimney at an affordable cost while also installing a liner. It's always a great idea to get multiple estimates and Roger's was the best value especially in terms of the work completed for the cost. After using Capitol Chimney, I would definitely call them again as well as recommend them to my neighbors and family. The work was even completed on a Sunday (Father's Day), since Roger knew my deadline.” –JC M. Severna Park, MD
“I had them over to sweep the chimney. They did a thorough job, pulled four squirrel carcasses out of the flue, and were very clean and conscientious with regard to my property and furniture. I asked for a quote for installing a wood-burning insert, and got a very competitive price compared to others I had received, so we decided to go ahead with it.
Long story short, we had some issues with the distributor of the insert sending the wrong model, wrong backing piece, delayed delivery and all the things that go along with that, brickyard running out of matching bricks, more delays. Roger kept me informed every step of the way and worked very hard to smooth out what could have been a very bumpy road. They rebuilt the chimney from the roofline and installed the insert within a couple of working days. Everything came out fine. They gave a 10-year guarantee, and even picked up and delivered a half cord of wood to my driveway.” –Paula C. Silver Spring, MD
“It took one day for Capitol to install and rebuild everything they needed to, and four weeks later we have no complaints. They were also able to reuse many of the loose bricks so as not to have to purchase new materials entirely. The service went very well overall and we would definitely use them again for future chimney servicing.–Michael M. Silver Spring, MD
“Capitol replaced the liner in my chimney very well. Crew was very professional and neat.” –Rebecca T. Silver Spring, MD
“I could not be happier with the service performed by Capitol Chimney. They were very thorough with the cleaning, and took the time to examine the inside of the chimney and explain to me the operations and things to look for. As a new homeowner it is my first time dealing with fireplaces and chimneys. They also installed energy-efficient chimney dampers, as recommended by our energy audit. We will be able to get a refund for these after a follow-up audit. They also repaired the chimney crown that was damaged during the earthquake. They completely removed it and rebuilt it.” –Michael G. Silver Spring, MD
“Capitol Chimney came to inspect and clean my chimney. We had not used the chimney since we bought the house three years ago and wanted to make sure it was okay to use this winter. It went very well. They called that morning to check if they could possibly come earlier than originally scheduled. It worked very well since earlier was better for me. They came on time and the person who came in to clean and inspect the chimney was very courteous and respectful of the house. He made sure to take his shoes off, especially because we have a white carpet in the middle of our living room. He took precautions to keep the rest of the house clean and performed the work in about a half hour. He said the fireplace was in good shape, but that it would be good to fix a couple of bricks that were broken in the back. He also mentioned that the big hole inside and to the right of the chimney might cause problems since smoke could get to the basement. He recommended we fix both problems, but said I could go ahead and try the chimney to "test" whether smoke traveled to the basement or not. We did and had no problem.” –Lisette O. Silver Spring, MD
“I'm very satisfied with the service they provided and they will be hearing from me again the next time we're in need.” –David D. Silver Spring, MD
“I had three fireplace chimneys and a furnace chimney relined, and extensive mason repairs done. The whole process went extremely well. The crew was on time and got the work done on schedule.” –Eric D. Silver Spring, MD
“They came! They cleaned! They went!
The rep on the phone was professional when scheduling the appointment. The crew of two arrived on time and was pleasant. It took them no more than 30 minutes to clean the chimney. They were careful not to create a mess and cleaned up the work area after. They also did an inspection of the condition of the chimney and flue and provided recommendations. They are my kind of contractor, no muss, no fuss, were punctual and did the job right. I would hire Capitol again. “–Mina J. Silver Spring, MD
“The job went great! There was a lot to have done and they got it all done in one day (amazing). They had to reline two chimneys, rebuild the back firewall of one, close off an old flue, and install some locking rain caps. They started in the morning and worked all day to get the job done, leaving the area clean when they left. They brought all their own supplies and I didn’t need to provide them with anything. I am very pleased with the work done and the price was hard to refuse. I would highly recommend them!” –Nathan Q. Silver Spring, MD
“My appointment was for a Level II Chimney Inspection (post purchase), which was completed with no issues found. They even accommodated my on-site requests: 1) dryer vent cleaning, which apparently had NOT EVER been done (based on the volume of debris) and installation of a new bird guard; and 2) fireplace (sweep) cleaning. The two-man team was extremely proficient and time efficient. They arrived within the prescribed window and completed the work to satisfaction. Fees were as advertised with no mess or problems. :-)” –Octavia D. Silver Spring, MD
“I had Capitol come out to clean my chimney. They did nice quality job. They were very friendly.” –Fred F. Temple Hills, MD
“Outstanding.” –Katheryn M. Upper Marlboro, MD
“We called Capitol Chimney Services to make the nearly 100 year-old fireplace in our new home usable. They rebuilt the chimney from the roofline up, installed two stainless-steel liners (one for the chimney flue and one for our appliances that vent through the chimney), a high-efficiency damper, new ducts on our appliances and sealed the chamber, installed a cap on the chimney, and pointed up our fire box.
Our house was built in 1928, and has a very unique brick pattern. Roger worked with us and his supplier to match the brick for the chimney rebuild as closely as possible, and to lay a pattern that was reflective of the rest of the house but stronger and more durable.
Throughout the process, Roger was responsive and flexible. The crew arrived as scheduled all three days, and went above and beyond expectations. They installed completely new ducts to our appliances instead of trying to take a short cut, and even cleaned our gutters while they were on the roof.
Overall this was an excellent experience. “-Lauren L. Takoma Park, MD
“We used Capitol for my mother's house. They did a great job.” –Virginia B. Towson, MD
Capitol Chimney Service Virginia Reviews
“They were quick and efficient. They were neat and didn't leave any kind of mess. It was a pleasant experience.” –Giovanny M. Alexandria, VA
“Capitol Chimney performed a chimney inspection inside and out, as well as a chimney sweep. I was very impressed by the quality of work they performed, the professionalism of their personnel, and their thoroughness. They also provided me with a reasonably priced estimate to repair some flashing on my roof near the chimney. When I'm ready to complete that portion, I will certainly call Capitol Chimney back to perform the work. I have already recommended Capitol Chimney to others and will continue to do so.” –Christine L. Alexandria, VA
“The Capital team was very professional and very careful to not make a mess. The initial service was cleaning the flue only, but I also asked them to install new caps on both flues. They also recommended repair work on the flue to seal cracked areas near the firebox and repair cracks in the top of the flue.” –Bruce C. Alexandria, VA
“The work was fast, efficient and excellent. I will use them again.” – Elizabeth N. Alexandria, VA
“Exemplary service, top quality workmanship, professional and courteous crew! Due to the earthquake last year, my chimney was separating from my house. I found Capitol Chimney and the owner, Roger Velasquez, came out for the estimate which I found to be reasonable for the task at hand. His crew arrived on schedule and they worked every single day to tear down the old chimney and rebuild it from ground up, including new foundation, two new chimney boxes, and the painting inside. Roger was kind enough to return every one of my phone calls and was most professional and courteous, as were his crew members and the foremen Javier and Henry, in all our interactions. They answered all my questions each time. I am very happy with my new chimney and the quality of work I received from Capitol VA
“Capitol did an excellent job. The previous owners of our house installed a gas fire insert; however, they did not clean the chimney beforehand. I bought the big deal to have it cleaned. Because it was so dirty and I had no idea how to use it, we had never used the fireplace. The workers arrived and cleaned the chimney. I explained to them that I didn't know how to use it. They spent 20 extra minutes to get it running and show me how to work it. I appreciated the extra mile.” – Shamik D. Annandale, VA
“The Capitol crew arrived on time. They prepped the area to keep it clean, and one worker did a quick and professional job of sweeping the chimney while the other did the chimney cap inspection.” –Paula D. Annandale, VA
“Capital Chimney was fantastic! I used them to fix almost every problem imaginable, from putting in a flue to getting out dead birds. Overall the job they did was fantastic, and they cleaned up after themselves properly as well.” – Liza A. Arlington, VA
“Two gentlemen from Capitol came promptly. One performed the cleaning of the fireplace and chimney while the other performed an inspection from the outside. They also answered any questions I had. Job well done.” Venka A. –Arlington, VA
“This is the first time I've used a chimney sweep, but overall the experience was good. It was easy to schedule an appointment, and the team arrived within the two-hour time frame. They completed the chimney sweep quickly and with no mess.” –Martin T. Arlington, VA
“Excellent. They came when they said they would. They did what they promised and didn't try to upsell us anything else. I would definitely use them again.” –Patrick C. Arlington, VA
“The workers were on time, quick, efficient, and told me my chimney was working properly. I have no complaints.” J.D. Arlington, VA
“The company scheduled us promptly and did an excellent job. My dryer time has been cut in half now because the vent is clean. I would definitely call them again, especially for the price.” Marry H. Fairfax, VA
“Work done on time and in the length of time expected. The crew was very careful to ensure the area around the fireplace was protected and cleaned inside the house.“Lyn S. Falls Church, VA
“They were in and out in no time and I have a clean chimney inside.” – Trish B. Franconia, VA
“The first time they came out, they cleaned the chimney and gave us an invoice for the needed repairs. They returned a second time to perform the repairs, and everything went well. We were able to use our fireplace the very next day. They were very friendly and efficient.” Tabitha S. Hampton, VA
“I thought it went quite well and the gentlemen that came were professional. There had been water leakage from the chimney into the fireplace. In addition to the chimney cap and cleaning, they needed to seal the chimney. They explained it very well. They did a great job! When it rained the next day, they came and redid the seal without a problem and wanted to make sure everything was just right, even though it was not their fault that it had rained.” –Marianne G. Herndon, VA
“They arrived on time, and cleaned out my chimney quickly. They did not make a mess, and were very professional.” –Katherine S. Mosby, VA
“I had my chimney cleaned and checked. They were able to schedule a Saturday appointment quickly which was GREAT! Two gentleman came at the time frame expected and one called ahead to let me know they would arrive in about 30 minutes. They were very friendly and professional—and nice to my cats which I liked I'm not a crazy cat lady but we pet folks like it when people go out of their way to be nice to our animals instead of ignoring them or scaring the heck out of them with all their noisy equipment. They were in and out in no time and left the place immaculate. They were very careful to set up the area so none of the ash or debris went anywhere but in their dustpan and heavy duty vacuum. They checked out my chimney and said all was well, and didn't suggest any work needed to be done. My experience with some companies is that they will use the foot in the door as an opportunity to do stuff like this and they didn't do it. I even asked to make sure they had checked everything out and they said all was good. I would definitely call Capitol Chimney again.” –Amanda M. Reston, VA
“Technician was very prompt, thorough, and respectful of our home. He was careful to cover all surfaces to protect them and happy to explain what he was doing during the cleaning and inspection. We were very pleased and would definitely use Capitol again!” –Mollie R. Vienna, VA
“Great! On time, good job, and great price.” –Noelle M. Vienna, VA
“The service went very well. The technicians were honest, quick, and clean. I would use them again.” Chad P. Woodbridge, VA
Capitol Chimney Service Washington, D.C. Reviews
“They were very prompt and courteous. They took pictures of all intended work for the repair, as well as the finished project. The price was very reasonable and the cleanup was done very well.” –Deborah W. Washington, D.C.
“Our boiler kept going out (tripping the blowback switch). We had some boiler repair folks come out, but they couldn't figure it out. Capitol came over did and inspection, recommended a reline. It took one day to install, they cleaned up after themselves, and we never had a problem again.”– Ben L. Washington, D.C.
“We bought the chimney cleaning deal and had no issue setting up an appointment with just a couple of days’ notice. The guy who came was great, gave us some tips, and cleaned up after himself well.” –Laura F. Washington, D.C.
“These guys were super nice and knew what they were doing. They noticed the fact that the chimney cap was cracked and in need of replacement. They also noticed that my dryer vent was clogged. They were able to fix both of them that day. They sucked the lint out of the dryer into their vacuum instead of blowing it all over my yard and the neighbors' yards. A couple weeks later I noticed the dryer vent was off at the dryer itself. They came out and fixed it for nothing, even though it was probably not installed properly when we got a new dryer; they hadn't touched that end, only taken it off the wall.” –Denice L. Washington, D.C.
“They inspected both chimneys and only one needed cleaning. They cleaned it and placed two chimney caps on the roof since there were none. The process went smooth--they were professional and quick.” –Vernon I. Fort Washington, D.C .
“Very smooth. Showed up within the time window, performed the job, and cleaned up. Very polite. Good price.” -Jon Z. Washington, D.C.
“Capitol Chimney Service gave me an estimate and then I had them realign my chimney. It involved them taking out the old terracotta lining of the chimney and replacing it with a stainless steel liner. The estimate was good and the workers were good. Everything was fine and I've used the chimney three times now and it seems to be working well. It's a fireplace chimney and not a furnace chimney, so they were clean. It was a good price and the service was high quality. They were very responsible and on time. They wore uniforms and everything and I'll probably use them for cleaning the chimney soon.” –Gerald P. Washington, D.C.
“They were great, arrived on time and did not leave a mess. They were able to squeeze me in before Hurricane Sandy on short notice.” –Anthony D. Washington, D.C.
“Prompt, professional and was efficient and kind. The team was very respectful of the home.
I needed to provide information about the cleaning and safety inspection to my HOA.
While the original receipt did not provide what the HOA was looking for, upon contacting Capitol Chimney about this, they provided exactly what was needed in a matter of minutes. THANK YOU Capitol Chimney! You’re the best!”-Monica T. Washington, D.C.
“Capitol was clean and efficient and even checked the chimney up on the roof.” –Mary B. Washington, D.C.
“They cleaned the chimney before I lit the fire. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t taking any risks. It was fine. It took them 20 minutes to do the job. They put a drop cloth down, were clean, and cleaned up well.” –Stephen K. Washington, D.C.
“The crew from Capitol was very professional and friendly. We will definitely use these guys again. I had another company come in when we first bought the house to clean the chimneys and all they wanted to do was push additional repairs and work on us. Which now I am glad we did not do, because the other price was a huge rip-off. These guys were honest and did what we needed at a good fair price for all of us. We will be calling them again to repair our other chimney later this year.“– Brian G. Washington, D.C.
“Our chimney did not have a cap on it and the terra cotta lining was deteriorating. Capitol Chimney service put in a stainless steel lining, replaced the pipes that run from the water heater and oil furnace to the chimney, and put a crown and cap on it. We were extremely pleased with Capitol Chimney Service. Their estimate came in $1,000 below another company we called. They did quality work in a very timely manner. There was great communication and when there was trouble finishing the job because of weather, they made our job their top priority and finished the work as soon as possible.
I would highly recommend Capitol Chimney Service for chimney work.” –Allison B. Washington, D.C.
“We hired Capitol Chimney Service to replace the tops of both of our brick chimneys, which had cracked in the D.C. earthquake. Both needed to be torn down and rebuilt from the roofline up. Their estimate was at least $400 less than the next-highest estimate. And their work was fantastic. The crew arrived on time, worked quickly and cleanly, and finished when they said they would (about two and a half days later). No complaints.” –Elizabeth L. Washington, D.C.
