    What a horrible experience. They came to work on my chimney and the ladder falls on my S550 Mercedes Benz causing body damage and totally messing up my railings for the stoop and breaking my solar lights for the steps as well. They did not even mention the damage to my car I had to find out by watching the Vivint video. I called Charlie and he did arrange to have my car fixed and he paid for the damages. I had to pay for the lights to replace the ones that were broken and was never reimbursed. My steps are still loose from the ladder falling on them. I spoke with Bob the owner to let him know the railings for the steps were very loose and needed repair after waiting 6 weeks for Charlie to fix things. Charlie finally came and put the lights on that I had to buy on my own and I was not reimbursed. However the railings remain very loose and the advice I was given by Charlie was, "Just replace the rails. We could give you a good price. " My rails were perfectly fine before Ageless Chimney damaged them when the ladder fell. This caused damage to my rails, solar lights for the rails, solar lights for the garden, and my car. Bob the owner said he would come by to make it right but never did. My rail remains very loose, and I was never reimbursed for the lights. What a major inconvenience Ageless Chimney caused me. I will say the work done on the Chimney was good. I wish they were more professional as they came highly recommended. They acted like they were doing me a favor or I was inconveniencing them when I wanted things fixed. The nicest person was the receptionist on the phone. I will now have to pay to get my rails redone unfortunately due to their error of not securing their ladder. Unreal.

    I had called Ageless Chimney because we had a leak into our attic from the chimney. We were unsure if the roof or chimney flashing was the problem. They set me up with an appointment for a one hour window and confirmed the day before. The guys got here on time. Charlie was professional and gave us a reasonable estimate and told us what the problem was. He was able to fix it right then and there! It stopped our leak! Thanks guys!

    A must hire. I have yet to see this level of commitment to achieve customer satisfaction and dedication to one's craft. I deliberately took over a year to write this because I wanted to make sure my issue was resolved. I had a leak around my chimney that was difficult to remedy and water was coming into my attic. Generally speaking, my chimney and flashing were in good condition according to several experts, and many couldn't understand why I was having leaks. A wide range of options were presented by different vendors as well as pricing. Ageless recommended repointing the chimney, so I agreed and the price was reasonable. After they finished the job, and after a hard rain, I saw that I was still having leaks. I called Ageless, and they came back to remedy the issue. About a month later, I was still having issues. I called Ageless again, and they came back a third time.Long story short, this project started in late 2017. These guys came back at least 5 times (no additional cost) over the course of 9 months and threw the kitchen sink at this (why a sink at a chimney? I don't know). They were fixing things that were out of original scope and around the chimney under pretense that water was traveling and entering my attic from unobservable areas. This additional work was at no additional cost as well and I approved all work. They even repointed the job a second time- no cost. All I know is that I met the entire team over the course of 9 months. All three gentlemen are cordial and knowledgable and committed to solving your problem. Not once was frustration directed at me. Unless they have zero overhead costs, I'd be surprised if they broke even on this job. I'm writing this because you want to see guys like this be successful. Hire them.

    Would highly recommend this company. They had excellent customer service! From the beginning phone call with Cheryl the receptionist to the workers Keith and Kyle that installed a stainless steel chimney liner today. This company was a pleasure to deal with, fast, had great prices, meticulous work, and highly recommended:)

    My neighbors actually comment at how great my chimney looks. The guys at ageless are literally the only people I would trust to fix chimneys, and roofs too. They’re stand up guys. They could easily charge more for their work, but believe in being fair. They’re about to do my entire roof, and I didn’t even bother getting additional estimates. I trust Sherwood, Bobby and the rest of the crew implicitly. If you don’t use ageless for chimney or roof repairs, you will regret it. Thanks again guys and see you soon!!!

    Had a chimney sweep done along with a cap put on my chimney. They were on time, professional and did the job at a fair price. I was glad they were a local company and they ended up doing my neighbors house the same day. Very satisfied.

    This Chimney company is reliable! Sherwood(owner) and one other guy showed up at the time they said they would and they were very professional. They put chimney cap's, and a new liner in for a great price. They were fast, and efficient. I would definitely recommend this company.

    We called Ageless Chimney because we were not happy with the company we had used previously. They were terrific -- turned up on time, showed us pictures/videos of the work that needed doing (and more pictures after they had done it), and offered good prices. Christian and Bob came back to do the work that we needed on a Saturday, and they were extremely professional and efficient, did a great job, and cleaned up after themselves.

    The staff arrived during the timeframe that was stated. I originally asked for chimney and boiler sweep but one of the guys took a look and said I didn't need the boiler sweep which id have never known. They were fast and efficient. When they went up to the roof they took pictures to show the damage I had and offered an estimate for future work. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful as myself and my family have never owned a fireplace. Will use again

    Bob and his staff were amazing. They came on time did all the work mentioned and were so clean you would not even know they were there. All the workers were very good and perfectionists. They explained everything they were doing. They fixed our chimney and front stoop. Their prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend them.

    I can't say enough about this company. They gave us a reasonably priced estimate and were on time with the estimate and with the appointment. They worked on my chimney on a cold snowy morning and were very pleasant to deal with. I am very happy with the job they performed. Would recommend this trust worthy company to anyone looking for work on their chimney.

    I found this company through online reviews and very pleased with the work they performed ! I had part of the chimney rebuilt , inner steel liner installed and point entire chimney. They were prompt, professional and excellent work ! They cleaned up afterward where you would never know there were any construction work done prior ! Nick was great , he remembered all tasks we discussed during our consultations and completed them all. Highly recommended them .

    Our oil company came to do the annual boiler cleaning and said there was a nest in the chimney. I had their recommended chimney company come for an estimate and they said we needed a new liner and brickwork (we have a very old house so I wasn't surprised), but their price seemed high. I'm usually wary about calling a company without a personal recommendation, but I called Ageless based on their on-line reviews and couldn't be happier. Their price was considerably less than we were quoted by the first company. They arrived on time, were able to do the work same day and were done in about an hour. The guys were very professional and everything was clean when they left. Don't be surprised if you see this same review on other web sites - I'm very happy to recommend this company!

If you’re searching for the best fireplace cleaner in New York County, look no further than Ageless Chimney!

Gas and wood-burning fireplaces are one of the most beloved features among New York County, NY homeowners. They add instant character and provide wonderful warmth, which is certainly welcoming on blustery winter days. 

Yes, if you’re East Village home has a fireplace, there’s no doubt you enjoy it; however, no matter how well you maintain the structure, soot and ash are bound to escape the firebox and leave behind residue on the bricks that surround the hearth and façade of your fireplace. When it does, it can minimize the aesthetic appeal of this prized feature of your home, and even worse, it can cause some pretty significant damage to your property.

Why Cleaning Your Fireplace Bricks is Important

Soot is a byproduct of combustion or rather incomplete combustion. It occurs when organic carbon-based materials, such as wood and coal, aren’t burned completely. It’s comprised of tiny black particles and it accumulates on any surfaces that surround a fireplace. Soot is acidic in nature; it also contains metals, dust, and oils. Bricks are made out of clay, and while they are heat resistant, they are highly porous. Given the elements that soot contains, the material can wreak havoc on brick. Not only is the accumulation of dark spots and stains unsightly, but over time, it can damage the brick and disturb the structural integrity of your fireplace.

Cleaning the soot that accumulates on the bricks that surround your fireplace is important because it not only enhances its visual appearance, but it also preserves the structural integrity of your fireplace; it assures your safety, too!

Reasons to Hire a Professional to Clean Your Fireplace Bricks

When you start seeing black stains and marks on your fireplace bricks, it’s time to give them a good cleaning. While you can certainly do the job yourself, fireplace brick cleaning is actually better left to a professional. Before you gather up cleaning supplies and pull up your sleeves, here’s a look at some of the top reasons why you should consider hiring a fireplace cleaning service to handle the task removing the soot from your fireplace bricks. 

Better Results

While it might seem like all you need is some sudsy water, a course scrubbing brush, and some elbow grease, in reality, cleaning soot off of bricks is a lot harder than it appears. Depending on the nature of your bricks and the soot that has accumulated on them, ridding the material of the substance can seem virtually impossible. In fact, many East Village, NY homeowners that we’ve spoken to who attempt the task on their own have said that no matter how hard they tried, they still couldn’t completely remove the soot that had accumulated on their fireplaces.

A reputable fireplace cleaning service will have the right tools and will know the proper techniques to successfully rid your fireplace bricks of unsightly and potentially dangerous soot. At Ageless Chimney, our team of experts has received extensive training on the most proven and cutting edge techniques and uses the safest and most effective tools to ensure the job is done the right way. When our team is on the job, you can rest assured that your fireplace bricks will be fully cleaned and look as good as they did the day they were installed.

Improved Safety

There are a lot of products on the market that are intended to clean fireplace bricks. While some products may be effective, the truth is, they often contain a mixture of harsh chemicals. Depending on the chemicals the cleaning product you’re using contains, being exposed to them has the potential to cause adverse side effects, especially if they make contact with your skin or eyes or if you inhale the fumes that they emit.

In addition to the potential harm that exposure to cleaning supplies can pose, there’s also a chance that you could damage your fireplace. If you use products that are too harsh, for example, there’s a real possibility that you could mar the bricks, weaken them, and damage the structural integrity of your fireplace surround. Operating a damaged fireplace can lead to serious consequences, including smoke and carbon monoxide poisoning, as well as an increased risk of a house fire.

Putting yourself in harm’s way is never worth the risk. Instead, have a professional company that specializes in fireplace brick cleaning do the job for you so that you can avoid the possible dangers that damaged brickwork and exposure to toxic cleaning supplies can pose.

Cost Savings

If you’re like many East Village homeowners, you might think that cleaning your fireplace bricks on your own will save you a bundle. In reality, however, fireplace chimney cleaning costs can actually be a lot less than the cost of DIY. When you factor in the expense of cleaning supplies, the potential damage you could cause to your fireplace, and the possible injuries you could sustain, paying to have a professional do the job for you can save you a bundle in the long run.
