I was managing other area chimney companies and decided that their business practices conflicted with my own. Approximately 18 years ago I started Ashes Away Chimney Maintenance. I pride myself in delivering fair and honest chimney quotes.
I listen to my customers chimney problems, address each individual chimney issue on its own merit, point out any problems I observe and discuss options available with my customer.
I do not feel it appropriate to insist on selling you a new car if all I see is bad tires.
I do maintain the Massachusetts required Home Improvement Contractors License. As well as the Massachusetts required Construction Specialty License needed to install wood and pellet stoves. [FYI: Massachusetts licensing is per the “person” not the business.]
In order to pull an install permit you MUST HAVE the appropriate license and insurance. A permit protects the homeowner, ensuring that everything was done according to the current Massachusetts code.
We are fully insured. We will gladly provide references. The office is staffed Monday – Friday. We welcome any and all questions concerning your chimney and all appliances attached.
If you receive a quote from another company we will gladly provide you a price based upon the other companies quote details.
A crown wash is not a re-crown, flashing seal is not new flashing, not all waterproofing is the same. Make sure you are comparing apples to apples.
Ask questions be informed about the knowledge of the person that will be working on your chimney. Will the estimator be the person doing the work? Does the person DOING THE WORK have the required licenses. Know what you are paying for!
Ashes Away Chimney Maintenance uses the following products: ChimneySaver water repellent which has a 10 year warranty, ForeverFlex Liners with the Forever Warranty that is transferable should you sell your home, DuraTech All Fuel Piping and LockTop Damper Systems. If you have a specific brand in mind please ask.
