He cleaned the cap and painted it, took after pictures so we could see the results. Mike was very professional, friendly, and answered all our questions and did a great job. The cap looks as if it is brand new.

  • John Kerr and Sergey actually arrived a bit early, explained the plan, implemented it effectively, hooked everything up, tested it, and cleaned up before leaving. Special thanks to Sergey to whom fell the task of climbing into the crawlspace under the house... UGH! I will certainly recommend Black Goose to my friends and clients.  Now, if only I had remembered MY part in utilizing the coupon I'd gotten off of the website...
    Cathy Dodgen
  • John Kerr was prompt and did a very professional job checking the status of our dryer vent. I would highly recommend him and the company to anyone interested in checking or repairing their dryer vent. We had used Black Goose last year to replace a flexible plastic dryer vent with a sturdy rigid duct. They did a great job (the dryer vent was routed through the ceiling of our garage, so it was not a simple job) They did the repair with minimal disruption to the ceiling and it has been working great since then.

  • Ryan M. and Jessie came out to inspect 9 fireplaces for a local Girl Scout camp. I asked a lot of questions and Ryan was more than willing to take his time and explain everything to me that I wanted to know. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and thorough. Thanks Black Goose!
    John Pierce
  • Ryan was very thorough. He arrived in the appointment window and spent almost two hours looking over our chimney. We've had four other companies out attempting to track down the source of our water problems. Far and away, Ryan spent took the most care and effort during his inspection.
    Jeff Sowers
  • We had Black Goose Chimney do work at our home with exceptional service and workmanship.  We also found they do more than just chimney repairs and we will use them for future work.  I received before and after photos to document the problem and the finished work.  The office secretary was also exceptional in her professionalism.
    Lyn W.
  • Jesse and Sergey did an excellent job with the fireplace installation and brick veneer and I couldn’t be happier.  They were great every step of the way and addressed all of my questions and concerns professionally and pleasantly.  The finished product looks great and I would recommend Black Goose Chimney for any installation or fireplace cleaning.  I can hardly wait for the cold weather to arrive so I can crank up the fireplace and enjoy the new addition to my home.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your hard work rebuilding the Rebecca Vaughan House's foundation and chimneys. This 1795 historic places structure was returned to its 18th century beauty due, in part, to your outstanding brick work. Your craftsmanship displayed while completing this project was nothing but excellent and I hope to have the good fortune of working with you again in the near future.
