We had a large company charge us to inspect our chimney, only to tell us we needed thousands of dollars of repairs and that we could not use our fireplace at all. I called Mr. Richardson for a second opinion. He was prompt and courteous, inspected our chimney and told us we did not need any repairs at all! Since he was in my home for less than 15 minutes, he wouldn't charge me for his time. He will be the only chimney sweep I will ever call!!
