5.0 Jian Y. Houston, TX

Highly recommended! James was prompt when he came for an estimate and the day to complete the work. He was open on the material he planned to use for the project estimate. He said he would take care of my project work like his own house and he surely did that. He fixed things he saw while working which was not in the original scope. James was professional and real nice guy. Appreciate your good work James!

5.0 Pam L. Pearland, TX

James demonstrated expertise with grill maintenance and repair. He was very efficient and educational. And did a wonderful job!! When I inquired about other stone walk work he also shared possible solutions. I will definitely request him again.

5.0 Charles B. Houston, TX

They were responsive, showed great competency, knew exactly how to fix my problem, and I would recommend them to anyone.

Response from Company:

Hello Charles, This is James Houston, the owner of The Chimney Specialist LLC. Myself and Danny, my assistant, were the second company that came to your home and corrected your fireplace and got it working properly for you. By mistake, you gave my company the rating, thinking we were the first company. If you would be ever so kind to correct that review for my company and give your intended review to the first company the other morning that was before us and did not do their service properly, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

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.
