Project: Clean and Inspect a Chimney or Fireplace
Prompt and competent service. I had one chimney cleaned and another one waterproofed. Knowledgeable reps explained the process clearly and completed the work efficiently.

Had one flue cleaned and the other relined. Crews were very personable, were happy to answer all questions. Very honest, fair, clean and trustworthy. Even went the extra mile by cleaning out a few leaves in the gutter ! I would highly recommend this company.

The crew was personable, on time, and did a fantastic job of repairing and stuccoing my chimney and concrete walls. I am extremely happy with their work and value for the money.

I trusted reviews from Home advisor, so I hired them. The price was reasonable and I was hoping to get nice outdoor fireplace with a reasonable price. That was my mistake. Our fireplace looked worse than family project and doesn't look like a professional job. I need to hire another contractor to fix this. It was a wasting HUGE money.

I highly recommend Lehigh Valley Chimney Specialists. I knew my chimney had a cracked crown, loose bricks at the top and several courses needed rebuilt. Was unaware of issues on the shoulder (where the chimney steps in) that there was no mortar and water could infiltrate. Phil was thorough outlining all that needed to be done during the estimate & included several issues I was unaware of. They needed to remove a total of 16 courses and replace a cracked flue pipe. The masons were punctual and my property was cleaned up afterwards. Lehigh Valley Chimney Specialists exceeded my expectations.

Project: Repair a Brick or Stone Fireplace (Non-Gas)
First I would like to say that everyone at Lehigh Valley Chimney was very nice and they were able to finish a job another masonry contractor, whom was from Easton Pa had started. The other mason contractor "Not Lehigh Valley Chimney" started the job but disappeared after I gave him $5000 deposit for labor and materials. People really need to be careful when hiring a contractor, do your research, I hadn't. As for Lehigh Valley Chimney Specialists, I hired them for a couple projects. The first being the chimney. They came looked at the chimney and gave me a good price. It was completed in a reasonable time frame and I was happy with the overall appearance and construction. However I do have a few complaints. 1) The chimney was supposed to be taken down to the roof line so you wouldn't notice the difference between the new and old brick. The original brick is no longer being manufactured. Approx one foot of the old chimney was left above the roof line. You can see the difference in the brick. If they they had taken the old brick down to the roof line as was in the contract there wouldn't be an issue. 2) The roof now has a small leak were the chimney comes through it. 3) Where the chimney abuts the home there is now a gap where you can see though to the outside when in the attic. The second project, a separate contract, was to replace 3 separate sets of wooden steps with block, add handrails to all three sets of steps, add a brick paver patio approx 21' x 21', add a short concrete sidewalk approx 10' in length from the driveway to the entrance door. I felt their price for this was high, but I needed it done and I believed the workmanship would be of the same quality. I overpaid. Unlike the chimney, which came out good, the steps, sidewalk and patio are not their specialty's. The concrete walk to the entrance door was poorly formed which left the sides wavy, the surface appeared to have been leveled with a stone rake and left to cure, it was clumpy and uneven with low dips and ponds. To look professional, it should have had smooth edges with a broom finish and sloped to the the lawn area. It looked as if a couple kids did it. They did come back after I complained but only put a surface patch over it. There is also a half inch lip to the stair landing which someone could trip on. Not a smooth transition. It looks terrible. It really needs to be removed and re poured. On the same sidewalk they were to do a brick step to the porch with a limestone cap. They did the entire step in brick without the cap and had to be called back to remove the top layer of brick so they could add the limestone cap, which only being approx 5' in length I assumed would be done in one piece of limestone, not two 2 1/2' pieces. The center seam on the cap is directly above the joint in the top brick, not appealing. As for the back patio, the pavers are not level and do not slope away from the house. The surface is wavy and water puddles by the house in certain areas. The other t
