Comments: Mr. Dwyer cleaned and sealed the exterior portion and crown of our chimney. He was very knowledgeable and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. I would highly recommend him for any chimney work you may need as he was honest and thorough and he will be my first call for any future chimney needs.

Review Date: 12/03/2020 | Author: Ned J.

Comments: Doug did a fantastic job restoring our chimney cap. He displayed great integrity and character and we recommend him and his services. He is old school mentality, meaning he uses the restore vs. replace strategy, if possible. He saved us quite a bit of money and our chimney never looked so good!

Review Date: 08/29/2020 | Author: Dawn C.

Comments: Club Dwyer came the day I called him, looked at problem, came back early the next day and did an excellent job. In fact, he saved me a lot of money by installing a better exhaust line that was recommended by another company. I would hire him again.

Comments: Doug Dwyer saved me $5,000, straight out. Another company had recommended full metal sheath through whole chimney, quoting $6,000. Doug advised not necessary. He did much better job cleaning, installed new type of advanced chimney-top damper that looks very promising as easy way to close off chimney, did other repair, for $1,000. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone.

Review Date: 02/02/2018 | Author: Chris G.

Comments: This was a pellet stove cleaning and repair. 20yr old pellet stove, not working. The cleaning that Mr. Dwyer does is incredibly comprehensive - front, back, sides, motors, exhaust, et. al. He figured out every issue until the stove was running again. Would give him 10stars if I could.

Review Date: 01/25/2018 | Author: Pat S.

Review Date: 06/28/2017 | Author: Barbara H.

Comments: Mr. Dwyer is an excellent example for other professionals because he is friendly, knowledgeable, professional, honest and he resolved all the issues we were having with our chimney for a reasonable price. He diagnosed the problem and solved it quickly.

Comments: Doug arrived the same day I called him and he diagnosed the problem with my gas fireplace within minutes. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He ordered the part I needed and when he received it he returned promptly and had the fireplace working within minutes. The price for his service was very good. He answered all my questions satisfactorily. I would not hesitate to call Dwyer Chimney Service again if I had any issue with my gas fireplace. I also hired Doug a few years ago to clean my chimney in my wood burning fireplace in my previous house. It was the best cleaning that chimney ever got! If I still had a wood burning fireplace I would call only Doug to care for it!

Comments: He inspected my fireplace and found it didn't need cleaning

Review Date: 01/31/2017 | Author: Jim C.

Comments: Assessed job, explained what was needed, ordered part and fixed it

Review Date: 01/20/2017 | Author: Jim G.

Comments: I was quoted a price for cleaning my chimney and a price for installing a chimney cap. After looking down chimney and taking a picture on his phone he determined a cleaning was not necessary. When I was going to pay for the chimney cap he told me there was an additional $100.00 due on top of the chimney cap installation. He told me that was for his inspection and additional time (maybe10-15 min.) What bothered me was another company gave me a price for the chimney cap installation of $20.00 plus cost of cap $140.00. Doug is very good at what he does just make sure you know the total cost for the work before he starts.

Review Date: 08/11/2016 | Author: David C.

Comments: Doug did a very nice job on a difficult stone and mortar repair and may well have discovered how water was getting into the basement. But some days he just didn't show up which drove us crazy. Suggest setting a schedule with him.

Review Date: 07/29/2016 | Author: Roger H.

Comments: Doug arrived on schedule , performed the job very well, and the final price was the original estimate. Very hard worker, and I certainly plan to use his services in the future.

Review Date: 07/29/2016 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Doug did a nice job laying a stone top for our stone wall. It required some creativity and he delivered. The overall project cost did increase by $300 and we found out on pay day. I would recommend proactively communicating any budget changes in the future to ensure everyone is aligned.

Review Date: 03/08/2016 | Author: Suzanne H.

Comments: Mr. Dwyer did a great job of cleaning our wood-burning fireplace/chimney! I really appreciated the time that he took explaining the things that he was looking for and what he was doing. He educated me on the structure of the fireplace/chimney, the types of build-up that can develop, and the prepping and storing our firewood. We had the cleaning done as we are selling our house, and Mr. Dwyer even gave me suggestions for the care and maintenance of the fireplaces in our new home. It's obvious that he genuinely cares about the quality of his work, and his rates are reasonable! Highly recommend!

Comments: Doug is the owner and workman. He was very caring and knowledgeable, reviewing my needs and giving tips and suggestions on what else he saw that would benefit the chimney. He took the time to explain clearly what he saw and his ideas. He performed the work in a timely and professional manner.

Review Date: 10/19/2015 | Author: Christy D.

Comments: Chimney did not need to be cleaned, but we were given information on the firewood to make sure our chimney does not need to be cleaned very often. The information was priceless and helped locate the right person to buy our firewood from. We love the new damper that was installed as well.

Review Date: 10/18/2015 | Author: Cindy B.

Comments: The man was very honest. Said my leak was from gutters not chimney and even cleared them for me. Advised me how I can do a little maintenance to prevent it from happening again. Can't give all 5 stars because he didn't need to actually service the chimney or fireplace.

Comments: Doug did a great job. We walked through the basement to check on the chimney and see which flu was connected to the fireplace and which was connected to the heater/water heater. He took a look from street level, and took several close up pics. As the work progressed, Doug kept me informed as to what was being done and what issues came up. He cleaned up each day, and when the work was complete, he cleaned up the yard.
