The job was finished exactly on time,
everything was done perfectly

and everything was left
in perfect condition.
They are excellent!!

Comments: Big Apple Chimney is the most caring, thoughtful professional service with which I've worked in 27 years of home ownership. The team that came to repair my chimney flu, which had been leaking condensation into every floor of my home, did a remarkable job of working quickly and efficiently while protecting every inch of my home. Over the years, I've retained so many contractors who cut corners or simply didn't care to do things the right way. This crew acted as if my home were their home. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Comments: Reasonable,personable,professonial well done job...thanks

big apple chimney did a wonderful job in my home they were detail oriented, knowledgeable and polite and kept my home from being invaded by the massive amounts of chimney/construction dust created by such work, they built a tent and sealed themselves inside, when they finally came out and took it down, i had a new chimney liner, a new roof chimney and a restored beautiful fireplace, all for a good price and it only took three days!

Comments: We called Big Apple when we found that earlier work was incorrectly done. They found that the situation was actually dangerous. They removed the old liner and replaced it. In short the fix has worked perfectly. The job was very professionally done and all in one day! I have already recommended Big Apple to my neighbor. Thanks.

GREAT EXPERIENCE This past September 2010, I had water damage throughout my home (all three floors), ceilings and floors and we couldn't find the leak no matter how we tried! A family member suggested that i may need to have the chimney inspected for leaks. Well I remembered their name, I had seen their trucks around my neighborhood, I got their number online at their website, after seeing their site, I called and spoke to Richard he offered to come over and give me a free estimate of the situation, he came the same day! a video camera inspection was suggested and for a reasonable price we found the source of the leak it was a faulty chimney, seems the masonry had deteriorated after years of neglect and it never had a liner, i have no fireplaces? who knew? that the chimney was still a factor, anyways I know now. Richard had his team of professionals install a stainless steel liner in my chimney flue, including a lifetime guarantee! Well needless to say, NO MORE LEAKS! I love it! Thank You Richard and Thank You BIG APPLE CHIMNEY

This Company did some of the finest fireplace and chimney construction i've seen in years, in a series of buildings i was under contract to renovate, i highy recommend them!!!

We used them for fireplaces (including totally dismantling & rebuilding a marble fireplace to put in a new hearth) & lining chimneys (given a rec. from friends of ours). We are very happy with the result. Jason Dorn is a good guy / easy to work with.
