The fireplace and chimney were thoroughly inspected by Derrick in the house my son was purchasing. The previous owners had stopped using the fireplace and not surprisingly issues were found. The chimney problems were remedied and a wood burning insert was chosen for the fireplace so that extra heat could be provided in the room during the winter. Kurt and Derrick were very responsive to questions we had during the repairs, and after the work was done. Kurt was very helpful, knowledgeable and patient in providing detailed information on the workings of the insert (being novices that we were). Attached is a picture of the fireplace insert. I would recommend Kurt and Derrick at Midtown Chimney Sweeps should you need to get your fireplace & chimney inspected or if you need repairs or a wood burning stove/insert.
Scheduling with Midtown sweeps was very easy and Kurt, who did the inspection and cleaning, was great! He gave us lots of tips on best practices when using the fireplace. Would definitely recommend!Update (2/23/2023): We had Kurt come and help us with the inspection and cleaning again. Like before, he was very professional and thorough in his work. Would highly recommend!
Kurt and Derrick were excellent to work with. They provided a comprehensive inspection of our fireplace and chimney. During the course of the inspection there were several cracks and other hazards identified within the panels in the firebox. These cracks were a potential hazard that, left untreated, could have caused a chimney fire. Derrick was very thorough and professional. He took the time to show me and explain what the issues were. In addition, he provided a very thorough chimney inspection report with pictures. Kurt was great to work with as well, regarding the installation of the new panels in the firebox. Again, very thorough and professional. I highly recommend using Midtown Chimney Sweeps in Hillsborough.
Very professional, great communication and the fireplace doesn't smell anymore! At least until I use it again. Very pleased with their work
Kurt and his crew provide a friendly, reliable service at fair prices. They did a great job on a chimney at my office that was in terrible condition. I highly recommend them.
Very professional service! Highly recommended!
I am a first time customer of Midtown Chimney Sweeps of Hillsborough. This was also my first time cleaning my chimney after I purchased my home 2 years ago. My experience with Midtown Chimney Sweep was phenomenal. Jon, the technician, was on time, friendly and expertly skilled. This was first class service in every way. Midtown Chimney Sweeps will be my chimney cleaning vendor of choice from now on. I recommend them to others as well.
Derrick did an excellent job explaining what service he was going to provide, and worked conscientiously to finish.In addition, he took time to answer many questions, especially why a lingering summertime smoky odor might occur long after no wood was burned.Since 2015 I have had frequent fires in the fireplace during the winter, and get the chimney cleaned every year.Derrick has done the best job.
This place refused to give me a quote on getting a liner replaced for my chimney because I was shopping around. Terrible customer service***update to my reviewOwner reached out to me personally and wanted to ensure my issues were resolved. He was extremely polite and actually gave me a quote for the work I needed to get done. Looks like the corporate office that handles initial contact messed this up. I will be reaching out to the owner directly to get this work done! Thanks for the follow up and resolving my issue.
On time and very professional.
Kurt from Midtown recommended that we replace our 45 yr old woodburning insert with a new one from Napoleon. We are so pleased with it's efficiency and the amazing amount of heat it produces!! And it's so much better environmentally!! The workmanship was neat and well done! And his attention to all correspondence from us was excellent!! We highly recommend them!!! Thank you, Kurt! We will be toasty this winter!!
Really awesome job!! They replaced a 45 yr old insert with a beautiful more effecient one! Excellent workmanship! Kurt was very friendly and easy to work with! We will be definitely using them for cleaning it as well!
Kurt from Midtown Chimney did a great job inspecting and cleaning our chimney, he was quick and thorough with great customer service. I'll be using Midtown Chimney for all future cleanings and service for our fireplace and chimney.
Midtown Chimney Sweeps is a awesome company and does great work! They're professional, knowledgeable and courteous.I definitely recommend them
We had a great experience with Midtown. Kurt Matthews was awesome!
He was terrific - friendly, knowledgeable; and easy to work with - I highly recommend.
Kurt was courteous, knowledgeable and professional. He did a great job!
Midtown is easy to work with. Scheduling the appointment via the website was easy. Responses were quick. The work was professional. I will use Midtown again for my next dryer vent cleaning.
Kurt completed a thorough chimney inspection inside and out in 2 hrs. He explained all the issues and presented a detailed report and estimate in simple language. I will use Midtown Chimney Sweep in the future.
Kurt was a pleasure to work with! We contracted Midtown Chimney Sweeps to clean/inspect the fireplace of the home we are currently under contract in purchasing. While I was not on site to work with him personally, he made time to speak with me over the phone following his inspection to walk me through the entire report. He also shared some great information for a rookie fireplace owner, covering some great tips and the standard do's and dont's. We highly recommend Midtown Chimney Sweeps and will be seeing them on a yearly basis for the annual cleaning/inspection.
Great service. Derrick showed up right on time and was very courteous and professional throughout the chimney inspection I needed. Didn't try to rip me off. Later I found out that I needed an additional form filled out. Contacted Kurt and he got it back to me within a few hours.
Great booth at the NJ Home & Garden Show guys!
I met them at the NJ Home and Garden Show in Edison. They had a really nice booth.
The appointment process was painless and quick, with a responsive confirmation and reminder. The technician arrived right on time, was friendly and candid. The quality and detail of the report was very satisfactory. He was very respectful and helpful with questions.
Kurt went above and beyond my expectations. He explained everything he was doing and made recommendations for improvement.I will call him again when I need chimney service.
Glad we found these guys. Kurt did a great job servicing our woodstove, replacing all the gaskets, full cleanup and reassemble. Any issue he made it right. Great communication and scheduling. Thanks!
My fireplace was leaking after a rainy night. A tech came and diagnosed the issue and re-caulked my chimney; apparently there were some slight holes in the original sealant at its base. The tech even took photos of the areas he had to address, before and after, so we would better understand the issue and how it was fixed. I would highly recommend Midtown Sweeps in Hillsborough!
Midtown chimney sweeps were very thorough in cleaning my chimney. The great value was in the information provided, products (not sold by Midtown) that help with creosote build up, products to clean the fireplace surround, and features that differentiate grates. Kurt inspected the chimney both inside and out and referred us to a mason for exterior maintenance.Kurt was courteous and informative, did a great job, and we will definitely be returning customers.
Kurt and his team are the very best! If you're looking for excellent service and detailed work, this is the company that you want.
Very pleased with the work. I called to have my gas fireplace inspected, they happened to have a technician in the area and he was able to come to the house the same day. I was concerned there was some heat damage to the chimney but after a thorough inspection, I was told my chimney and gas fireplace were in complete working order and free from any issues.
He was here on time and did a great job. He also walked me through my system, and explained it to me.
This was a great experience from start to finish, from setting the initial appointment, to the completion. Kurt was very informative and took his time to complete the cleaning, had great equipment, and was very thorough. I highly recommend his services!
Very honest, reasonable and dependable. They do very thorough and neat work. Excellent.
Great Service ! Highly professional ! Kurt knows his stuff !!!!!
Great, affordable, quick chimney guy. We got a level 2 chimney inspection and had the back and bottom panel of our chimney replaced. I would recommend Kurt to anyone who needed work on there chimney. He was very nice and considerate, covered the area he was working in and had a HEPA vacuume. Also answered alot of my questions on how to use our fire place properly. We wanted a level 2 chimney inspection because we bought a house and the inspector recommended it. That made us call lots of people in local advertisements which all said they do a level 2 inspection but when they got to the house said they only do a level 1. I am so glad my husband found this guy on Google. We literally did not use our fire place until we got the level 2 inspection and thank goddness we waited because a chimney sweep cleaning came with the inspection and it needed to be cleaned so bad. A pile of soot 2ft high even with the vacuum sucking up the soot as he cleaned slowly as to not make a mess. Anyway I highly recommend Kurt/midtown chimney sweeps.
Kurt from midtown was a true professional and very knowledgable about chimneys! Dependable and affordable work!
Kurt was super knowledgable and friendly. He educated me on the type of chimney system I had on my new home and walked me through caring and maintenance. Highly recommend him and look forward to working with him in the future.
We are so pleased with the improvements made to our wood burning stove and chimney. They not only look nice but are safer to use.We had a potentially dangerous issue with the placement of our stove that Kurt was able to repair. Kurt replaced a rusted chimney cap that had blown off with a high quality stainless steel one. Kurt is courteous and professional. He also cleans dryer vents so we had him clean ours Highly recommended.
I am very pleased with the quality of the service received. The company was quick to respond via phone and email. The worker who came out to the house was curtious, respectful and pleasant. More importantly the recommendations that were made for immediate and future chimney needs were fair and appropriate. They gained my trust by not trying to up-sell me on a bunch of stuff that I did not need but letting me know the risks and timing for imminent repairs. Also worth mentioning here is that I thought they were fairly priced. I highly recommend Midtown to others in need of their services.
If you need work or just advice regarding your chimney, do yourself a favor and contact Kurt of Midtown Chimney Sweeps. Very professional, knowledgeable, willing to take the time to explain everything to you and answer all your questions. You'd never know he was there because he cleans up so well. Very impressive. Highly recommend ! Scott Mcgee, Boundbrook, NJ
Kurt did a great job. He is very professional. The use of the drone was a plus. I would recommend him and I will use him for future work!
Clean, courteous,honest,timely delivery,professional. We have had our wood stove chimney cleaned for 25 years and Kurt Matthews of Midtown chimney sweeps left my home with NO SOOT!!! Thrilled and highly recommend!!!
We found this service to be extremely efficient, professional and prompt. They e-mailed to remind us of their visit & called before they arrived; much appreciated! We will use Midtown for years to come. Thanks for the exceptional service!!!! Shelley & Carl
Service received on my chimney (sweep) cleaning was very thorough. Serviceman was very curtious, calling to say he was on his way, and arriving in a timely manner. All questions had were answered, taking the time to explain the cleaning process as well. He gave reference to the types of wood that are best used in the fireplace, and what to be aware of when using the chimney over a period of time to maintain good working order. It's so nice to get great knowledgeable service.Thanks Midtown Chinney Sweeps'. A job well done".
Great service, very quick on the chimney sweep.
Great service, quick turnaround and quality work - couldn't ask for more! We had our chase cover replaced and the process went smoothly from start to finish. Highly recommend!
Midtown Chimney Sweeps were excellent! Kurt and Byron inspected our two chimneys inside and out, two wood stoves and two furnaces then cleaned and assessed their conditions. They showed us video and photo examples of the stressed and damaged areas and recommended a plan of action to fix the problems. The best part was that I didn't sneeze ONCE while they were working (and I am highly allergic to dust) - the vacuum they used had a HEPA filter and it worked great. Don't wait until you have a problem with a chimney... keep them in good working order. I highly recommend Midtown Chimney Sweeps!
Excellent and knowledgable service. Kurt arrived on time and promptly went to work. He answered any questions I had, and completed the job quickly and efficiently. Very open to working around your schedule. I would definitely recommend Kurt and Midtown Chimney Sweeps!
Kurt provided excellent service. He was pleasant and thorough. Kurt examined and cleaned our chimney and dryer vent. He explained the process and emphasized fire safety. We will continue to use Kurt for these services.
Quick, clean and very professional! Kurt is very nice! I highly recommend Midtown Chimney Sweeps for dryer vent cleaning.
Recently used Midtown Chimney Sweeps in Hillsborough for dryer vent cleaning, which turned out to be a replacement of the dryer tube, and I'm am thrilled with the results. Kurt was thorough, professional and courteous. My 20 year old dryer is working like it's brand new, so much more efficient! Thanks, Kurt!!!
Great service, very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend for all your wood burning, chimney, and dryer vent servicing needs.
Great job, clean and neat and very thorough. A pleasure, thank you Kurt
Courteous, thorough and professional service. Kurt took extra care to protect our furniture and surrounding areas while doing his inspections. ..Much appreciated.
