Just hired Innovative Chimney to repair my brick chimney and install a liner. After many estimates and companies I chose Innovative because after meeting with John there was no other technician who could come close to his professionalism and knowledge about not just chimneys but every home project we plan on working on this summer. It was a pleasure working with Innovative Chimney my husband and I are truly pleased with the work and are glad we did not just go with the cheapest company this time and went with our instincts. We will be sure to call John again.
avoid at all cost – I contracted with Innovative Chimney to install a 7 inch liner in my house. They installed a 6 inch liner with substandard work. I have spoken with Desiree Yeamans on 3 occasions and left nine messages. The company now refuses to take my calls and will not correct their sub-standard and dangerous work (potential for possible CO poisoning). I have now contracted with another company to replace the liner at a cost of $2,500 and I am now taking steps to sue Innovative chimney in court. I would advise anyone to stay clear of this company. They also list themselves as A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau but their actual rating with the Better Business Bureau is F (worst rating possible). They appear to be a two person company (John and Desiree Yeamans) but present themselves as much larger. I will see them in court shortly. If anybody wants to speak with me before contracting with them my number is 973-865-1055
Innovative Chimney did a great job. – I had called a few companies for estimates on a new damper. Innovative Chimney came in at my top choice. The cost was not the cheapest but fell right in the middle and the service was well worth it. They were very professional and on time. I love how easy the new damper is to use too. I will definitely call them again and just offered their information to my daughter who just bough a house and may need some repairs.
Stay away from these Crooks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm a mid to large builder in Bergen county and used innovation chimney to install a custom flue cap for a BRAND NEW 2 million + home. After the 1st rainfall and paying ~$1000 for a custom copper CHIMNEY Cap a good amount of water came into the fireplace area thru the top section of the flue (where the capo was installed). I called John and Desiree and notified them of the issue and they without looking immediately stated it was not related to the work they preformed. They did no stand behind any warrantees with the material or labor. Instead they wanted me to buy a 2nd cap for another ~$1000. I tried to address this with John (owner operator) on the jobsite and caught him smoking marijuana in his truck. I was a fool to let these folks work on this project, later did I find out that they uninsured. Believe that in a high risk occupation as this is, they are uninsured. That mean if the get hurt, it’s your problem too deal with. I asked on several occasion for an insurance certificate (which is very standard), they stated no problem and sent nothing. Stay away from these crooks, they make themselves look bigger then there are a 1 man 1 woman husband and wife combo shop with plenty of phone numbers and answering services that get back to you (unless it a new sale). They even gave themselves self review on most of the major sites (deceiving) and don't even list there address(es) of business on these own proposals, go figure....
