We have only used Early Times for chimney cleaning/repairs since we moved into our home 21 years ago. Most recently we had an estimate of $1329 for rebuilding a new firebox back wall and tuckpointing in our fireplace. Upon arrival, the mason Matt discovered that we only needed tuckpointing to fix our problem. You can't imagine how happy we were to get the good news. Matt saved us several hundred dollars. We really appreciate his honesty and will continue to use Early Times in the future.
