I needed to have a Chimney Certification Inspection done for my rental property in Norristown. The Chimney Scientist crew came out promptly and did my inspection and they also had a copy of the Norristown inspection form filled out on the computer after their visit. I was then able to print out this form and give it to the code enforcement office. They had good customer service. I will definitely contact The Chimney Scientist if I need any fireplace or chimney work done in the future.

This is an on-going project. So far, we've been very impressed with the expertise of The Chimney Scientist and with the degree to which they have tried to understand our needs. Although more work is required, we're hoping for a very successful conclusion.

The weather didn’t want to cooperate but as soon as they could get here and safely climb on the roof they did. I would recommend The Chimney Scientist to anyone needing their type of service.

I called the Chimney Scientist when another contractor failed to perform the work as promised. Joe was super helpful and quick to inspect our chimney for a borough permit. Pricing was more than reasonable and his online invoicing make payment a breeze. Would use again.

I called Joe for a second opinion about a repair to my chimney when another company said it was unusable and needed an insert. Joe came promptly, diagnosed the chimney, and explained a less expensive option. Joe and his coworker did the repairs, saving us thousands of dollars. I think they left my living room cleaner than it was when the project started. They were courteous and professional. I wish everyone was so honest, courteous, and helpful!

I was very impressed with the knowledge, professionalism and honesty of the Chimney Scientist staff. I own multiple properties, all with wood burning fireplaces, and asked that all of them be inspected. If work was required, they showed me the problem and what it would take to do the repairs, including the cost. If no work was required, they shared that with me as well. The work was all done in a very timely way, they showed up when they said they would show up, and in general they were very good about communicating. I would absolutely recommend Chimney Scientist for fireplace work, chimney repair and any other related work.

Chimney Scientist responded quickly to my inquiry regarding an inspection a fireplace and heater chimney that was in need of repair. The professionalism shown by Isaac was refreshing. He explained the recommended repairs in a manner that was easy to understand and provided what I felt was a very fair quote promptly. When it came time to do the repairs he was sensitive to our tight time frame and completed the repairs as promised. I would definitely recommend this contractor!
