Frechette Chimney: Offering Personalized & Professional Chimney Services to Homeowners Throughout York, Eliot, Kittery & More

Do you need first-rate chimney care, but find it challenging to know which companies can be trusted and which cannot? Fortunately, when looking for a team of sweeps, there are lots of things that can help you determine whether or not they’ll give you the care and attention you deserve. Let’s talk about some of those now and how Frechette can meet and even exceed your expectations for a chimney sweep.

One thing people want to know before hiring a sweep is how qualified the company is, and there are a couple of big things to look for – certifications/memberships and years of service. Frechette Chimney is certified with the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fireplace Institute (NFI), and we work hard to maintain these certifications by staying up to date on trainings and all necessary knowledge. We’re also members of the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG). This allows us access to all kinds of resources and industry news, empowering us to better serve our communities season after season.

As far as experience goes, we’ve been helping homeowners throughout the area for over 40 years and counting! There isn’t much we haven’t seen, and if you’re having a problem with something in your chimney (no matter how common or uncommon it is), chances are, we have a solution.

Another crucial element in determining the quality of the care you’ll receive is customer service. Now, any company out there can claim they excel in this category, but how can you really know for certain that they’ll go above and beyond for you? Easy – check out online reviews! We’re reviewed on countless websites and platforms, and we are proud to note that we have satisfied customers all throughout our service area. Just give us a search and see for yourself!

To top it off, you want someone who is licensed and insured, so that you’re protected should something happen. We’re licensed and insured, and we are proud to hold ourselves to the ethical standards you expect from a family-owned company. We take your safety seriously, and if we come to your home, you can bet we’ll treat your property with the respect and professionalism you deserve.

Signs such as a strong, smoky odor even when the fireplace is not in use, excessive smoke while burning, or visible soot buildup indicate that your chimney likely needs cleaning.
