Chimney and Wildlife Specialists To The Rescue!

Chimney and Wildlife Specialists have come to the rescue once again. We previously called them to repair weather worn mortar and a leaking chimney. The repairs worked perfectly and the new chimney cap is quite attractive. We called them a couple of years later to ask for help with a problem that arises most years in early winter and then early spring- occasionally finding a lethargic wasp in the house- and they had the perfect remedy. They quickly return calls and carefully address inquiries. I love the text message confirmations and reminders in addition to emails. Both times the technicians who came (Brandon and Danny) were comfortable to work with, highly skilled, and kept us apprised of the progress of the process. The quote was divided into the various procedures so that we could choose the services that fit our budget. The price was a bit higher than some places but we used another company when we first moved here and later found that the mechanism that was installed as a "chimney cap" was essentially a coated wire shelf (think off brand Elfa) that was held on with a wire. Better quality service and products are definitely worth it. We have had two great experiences and highly recommend Chimney and Wildlife Specialists/The Hearthside Shop.

Highly recommend

We received excellent service from this company! Everyone did a fantastic job! What a wonderful group of people there are who work for this company. Tony, the owner, is knowledgeable, personable, and fair. Danny and his crew did a terrific job - they are all very hard workers. Carlo and his crew were the same way. Summer was very helpful, as well. I recommend this company to anyone who needs their chimney and fireplace redone.

Professionals in Every Way

Honest people who provided me a second opinion that saved us about 15,000 dollars, very good communicators as far as letting us know when they would come, and very good at educating us on services provided and maintenance.

Amazing Repair Work!

We've not been able to use our fireplace the entire time we've lived here, and after the snow in 2021, we wanted to get this resolved. We got an inspection done quickly, and then our repair was scheduled. We are very happy with the work completed and happy to finally feel safe using the fireplace.

This is a good company to work with

Carlos helped me install the fireplace burners. He not only did the installation, but also thoroughly explained pro and con for different options. I gained quite a lot knowledge from him. This is a good company to work with.

Quality, Dependability, Honest

I have two chimneys in my home and needed to get them heavy duty cleaned. Who do you trust? I had one local company with tons of 5 star reviews come out and quote me for some expensive, chemical based, process to eliminate the buildup in our chimneys and the price was sky high and time consuming. Super sales minded approach $$$$. I found Chimney and Wildlife of Richardson for a second opinion. Turns out non of that was needed. Had my chimneys cleaned same day for the cost of a normal chimney sweep. I’ve had them back to Install gas’s logs in both fireplaces and a chimney cap. They are always responsive, fair and I’d bet they have the best chimney sweep in the metroplex in Carlos Maier. He’s on time, easy to work with, gives you an honest truth assessment of what’s needed, options to consider and delivers quality work in a timely manner. No need to look anywhere else for my chimney needs.

New Fireplace Inserts

Love my new ceramic fireplace inserts! Cleaned my chimneys, cleaned my fire boxes, and replace the old tired logs and pipes with new burner plates, lava rocks, and Fyre Spheres. They look amazing and clean!

100% 5 star service. Excellence in communication, promptness, knowledge and completion of job

I had no idea of how to get rid of squirrels or other such animals digging holes and tunnels into my home. I knew of Chimney and Wildlife Specialist and had heard great things, but I really didn't know how it all worked and what was involved. From the moment of my first consultation, I have never had another company be more prompt with up to date texts of exactly when they were on their way so I didnt have to wait around. They did such a complete thorough job of the entire house in such detail and then followed up promptly a couple of times to make sure all the critters had disappeared. Each time, my interaction with the individual was so professional. It was just truly some of the best service I have experienced with any company in such a long time and I would 100 percent suggest this company to anyone who is looking for the best when it comes to wildlife removal or a new roof. They will do you right!!!!

CARLOS, MY MAN-GREAT JOB!

Carlos was the most knowledgeable person we ever spoke to concerning our roof leak. After numerous attempts by the subject matter experts who said they knew exactly what was wrong and did a very shoddy patch up job that has never been resolved, Carlos came into our lives. He climbed up the roof took pictures of the chimney and the roof from every angle then proceeded to examine and took pictures of the underside of the roof in the attic. Carlos finally sat down with my husband and I and explained each picture. He concluded with a solution. Tonight will be the real test with the rain storms late tonight. Carlos was such a consummate professional who took pride in his skills. He was so patient with us and spent a long time explaining what he was going to do. Carlos is the “to go guy” for any roofing problems you may have. Thanks Carlos!
