I wanted to have my chimney inspected, as we had not had it done in quite a few years. Several years ago, I searched for a business of this type and wasn't able to find on in my area, so, I let it go. The Woodburning stove in my home isn't the primary source of heat in my home, but a very relied upon "backup". I got the contact information from a local Woodburning stove dealer, contacted them and made an appointment. A few days later, they did show up, unexpectedly, but I believe the confusion as to date and time of the appointment was my fault. What I was looking for from them, was a stove door, to chimney cap inspection of the setup in my hour and I feel that is exactly what I got. They climbed on the roof, shined a VERY bright light inside, using a camera, they were able to show me just how bad off my chimney was. When service companies tell you "Oh, yea, it's in bad shape (whatever that thing is) you kinda just have to take their word for it. Tough to know otherwise if it's not something you know about yourself, or its the inside of a 20 foot chimney. The bottom line is, they inspected it, found it to be unsafe to use, had photographs to back up the need for repair and justify the verdict of "unsafe". These people were VERY friendly, professional and seemed genuinely concerned that I understood how serious the need for repair before next use was. Not for the need of their business, but for the safety of my family. Had I used this system without having it inspected this season, could have ended in a story on the news. The bad news is, the repair estimate is between 800 and 1000 dollars. Even if I have to pay a little more, I would still probably swing in the direction of Idaho Stove Works. Besides what I have told you here, I just have a good feeling about the kind of people they are.

I had a chimney fire due to a lot of creosote build up. Due to the fire, there was also glazing. Todd and Drew spent 2 1/2 hours cleaning the main fireplace and the fireplace downstairs. They were very professional and knowledgable in their craft. I would recommend Idaho Stove Works to anybody who needs chimney work. Do not wait for a fire before call them. Have your chimney cleaned every Fall. Thank you Todd and Nancy
It is important to all of us here at Idaho Stove Works that we have built an "after the service" relationship with our customers. Through these last years, we have met some of the neatest, coolest people on earth. As much as they have appreciated our service, we appreciate their business, so a big "THANK YOU" to our customers who became our friends. We couldn't do what we do without you!
Idaho Stove Works works hard so you know we are here. The Spring Fair 2014 was a great time to meet our customers and make new friends. We were fortunate to have Bob and Keaton join us to demonstrate fun new products.

He is well versed in customer service working at some of the top restaurants in Orange County, CA. His mechanical aptitude comes from service in the US Army.
