    I'm putting in a good word for Emerald City Chimney (Bruce in particular). I recently bought a house with a missing chimney cap. I also assumed it needed to be swept because the previous owner had never had it done and he'd lived there over three years. I made the appointment for the sweeping and chimney cap replacement. Bruce came out, thoroughly inspected it, and let me know that it didn't need to be swept (was completely clear of any potential buildup), and that the chimney itself was in great shape, much of it having been replaced about 10 years ago. He put on the cap and charged me fairly for it and let me know to call in about two years to have it swept, based on my plans for weekly fires during the winter. He could have easily put on a show and charged me for a cleaning. He was very informative, professional, punctual, and honest. Big thumbs up from me.
