About Us

About Us

ROOFTOP CHIMNEY SWEEPS, LLC. began business in 1978 when hardly anyone knew about chimney sweeps or the need to have chimneys swept.

That’s us, Tom and Andy, to the left (circa 1978). We’ll still be the ones to come out to your place today!

Through the years we have maintained high quality work at very fair prices. The chimney sweeping business has seen a lot of changes, and we have continued our education through the years to stay abreast of those developments in the industry. By having joined and maintained membership in such organizations as the National Chimney Sweep Guild and by staying current with certification from the Chimney Safety Institute of America, we can apply the most current techniques to each chimney we see.

Our business is built on quality not quantity. There are larger sweeps companies and companies that say they can do everything from roofs to gutters to fences. We work only on chimneys and vents. We do not wash windows and we will not cut your grass, but we will give you the most knowledgeable information about your chimneys and exhaust vents.

Because we always try to do the best job we can, most of our business is repeat customers and referrals. We have not had an ad in the Yellow Pages for almost 20 years.

Here’s what you can expect

Rooftop Chimney Sweeps technicians inspect before making any recommendations, should any recommendations be needed. Since some of these spaces are hard to reach, and difficult for you to see, our inspections include taking photographs for your review.

Upon completion of the inspection, the technician reviews the photographs with you. If recommendations are needed, the technician will explain them to you.

Additional work beyond inspection is not always necessary, but when it is, we may suggest cleaning, replacing parts or masonry work.

All work is preceded with a written estimate for your review.
