Chimneysweep and Mason?

Postby Mortimer Snerd » Tue Apr 24, 2007 1:39 pm

Can anyone here recommend a good mason/chimney person?

In addition to a good cleaning, our chimney needs some of the mortar chiseled out and replaced. I don't want a buncha yahoos screwing it up and causing leaks, so am looking for someone reputable.

We have had Badger Chimney clean ours. They do a really good job. They also do masonry/repairs.

But do they speak with a believable cockney accent?

I thought I'd bump this, since I'm looking for a chimney mason to rebuild a fireplace throat and smoke box. I'd like to avoid the showroom places and work directly with the mason.

Fireplace Folks at 1902 Stoughton Rd. did some really nice work for me a few years ago. I wanted historically compatible masonry and they sent out a guy who knew what he was doing and did a good job. They even found some matching local stone (salvage, which is the way to go on an old building).

Everything depends on whether they still have that mason working for them (or someone equally qualified). If I could remember his name I'd tell you, but I can't. So, since no one else has offered a reference here, I'm saying go talk to the Fireplace people, describe your job to the owner (who is very knowledgeable) and ask if they can do it or send you to someone who can.
