Review by in Tampa, FL
This company does not communicate with the customer and as a result a lot of things were a surprise. The original contract was signed in August 2018 and the workmen showed up in February 2019. The plan was to replace a L shaped wall, approximately 80 inches by 122 inches x 8 foot tall. The engineer plan came back with a wall 72 inches by 96 inches. After the demolition of the existing wall, my wife and I received a surprise call from the delivery company that the driver would be at the house in about 15 minutes to deliver the ordered material. Surprise, we were about to leave for my wife's doctor visit. There was no notification from Chimney Cricket that this was going to occur. The company correctly pulled the permits required for this area but failed inspections on the first attempt. 2 times though I will give the companny, Chimney cricket the benifit of the doupt on the footing inspection. The inspector was wrong on that one. The first attempt of the stucco was a dismal failure since it did not look uniform. The surface had 2 different patters. The second worker did it very well and I am pleased with the result. Chimney cricket was also supposed to replace the chimney cap and dampner on the fireplace. The workers were sent out with the correct dampner but not the new chimney cap. During inquiry with the office, I was informed that the new cap would be an additional $200.00. The cap was included in the price originally.

Chimnee Cricket did a lot of work on our fireplace and chimney in St. Pete. The previous owners neglected it pretty badly and a lot of masonry needed to be redone. They came out and did a free estimate, provided us with catalogs of options for our remodel, and were very professional throughout the process. We love the finished product, it looks beautiful. The only thing I would suggest as an area of improvement for our experience was the time between communications, sometimes we would have to call and prompt the next step or to find out updates on where things were, so make sure you are a good advocate for your project or it might take a while to get done if there is significant work needed. Would still recommend them though because the quality was top notch.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
