Brickliners Custom Masonry & Chimney Services Has Everything That Fireplace Owners in Westbrook Are Looking For

There’s a lot of chimney companies out there that care more about making a quick buck than they do about customer satisfaction. But we’re not one of them. That’s why communities throughout Westbrook, Cumberland Mills, Mosher Corner, Sagamore Village, North Scarborough, Nasons Corner, Prides Corner, Riverton, Stroudwater, Rosemont, Deering, Gorham, and the neighboring areas always turn to us. Do you have a trusted sweep?

Do your chimney and fireplace need some maintenance? You might find yourself lost in a sea of Google searches. As it turns out, finding a company that can meet your needs and standards can be a difficult and time-consuming process. You want the best for your home and family, so finding a team that’s reliable, reasonable, and responsive is essential. Yet, you don’t want to be pulled in by a company that seems great, but ends up letting you down.

Fortunately, there are a few specifics that can help narrow things down during your search.

The first? Check for certifications.

The CSIA, for example, is one of the most highly-esteemed education and certification organizations in the industry. It provides an abundance of training opportunities for sweeps all throughout the country and is known as the industry standard. If the company you’re looking at has earned and maintained its CSIA certification, then you can bet the sweeps coming to your home are dedicated to delivering the best and most ethical services.

Check for industry memberships.

There are other organizations that offer educational opportunities as well — some of which certify sweeps, and others that allow companies to be members. Any type of association with these organizations is a good sign.

Here at Brickliners Custom Masonry & Chimney Services, we are F.I.R.E.- and CSIA-certified and we are members of the NCSG. You can bet we always have the latest on all things industry-related… our sweeps really know their stuff!

Check that they’re licensed and insured.

Another important thing to check for when looking for a reputable chimney company is licensing and insurance. Many companies don’t invest in becoming licensed and insured, but it can make a big difference in protecting you and giving you peace of mind when sweeps are on your property. So don’t settle for anyone who’s not licensed and insured.

Check customer reviews.

What else should you look at when evaluating a chimney company? Customer reviews. We’re in a day and age where putting your opinion out there is easier than ever, and checking in to see how others rate the company you want to hire can be extremely helpful when making your decision. Even the bad reviews are good to look at, because they reveal how respectfully (or disrespectfully!) the company handles miscommunications or mess-ups.

Check for comprehensive service.

Can they help you? Some companies are good at one thing, but not very knowledgeable in another area. You don’t want to work with a company that can’t take care of it all for you, because that means you’ll just end up needing to find yet another company down the line.

Here at Brickliners, we specialize in comprehensive chimney and fireplace service, so we can take care of it all for you. What all can we help with? Chimney Sweeping, Chimney Inspections, Chimney Repairs, Preventive Maintenance Repairs, Repointing, HeatShield®, Waterproofing & Water Repellent, Chimney Caps.

Check how long they’ve been around.

Another factor that can help narrow down your search is history. How long has the team you’re hiring been serving the area? In this type of industry, the more experience you have, the better equipped you will be to handle all kinds of problems —  from the most common issues to the things that only occur once in a blue moon. At Brickliners, we’ve been at it since 2005, so you can bet there isn’t much we haven’t seen or done. Rest assured, we’re a safe bet.

When all is said and done, you should be working with a team that puts you first and offers a high level of professionalism and respect. As a family-owned company, these are qualities we take seriously. If you hire Brickliners Custom Masonry & Chimney Services, you can always expect a high level of customer satisfaction.
