“We had one chimney double lined for two fireplaces (upstairs and downstairs, sharing one chimney) by Magic Sweep Chimney Services of Sutherland, VA. This is not the same as “Magic Sweep.” The company we used is owned and run by a man named Randy Goodfellow and he did an AWESOME job on our chimneys. He does all the jobs himself (with an assistant or two) and is really dedicated to getting things right. We had a major problem of a firebox being too big for the flue and of the three companies that we had look at it and give estimates (one would not even offer an estimate- they didn’t want to touch it!), his suggestions and price seemed the most reasonable; I’m so happy we went with him. I think we paid around $6000 for all the work– yes, a lot, but less than the other estimate by several thousand. This was for a poured in liner, not a metal liner (He uses Guardian Chimney Liner, which comes with a lifetime guarantee. The company says that the liners also help support the structure of masonry chimneys- good for us since ours is 100+ years old and had been long neglected.”

“Both fireplaces work great and one is a very small coal type fireplace. We just use smaller logs in it. If I had the money I’d have Randy do all of the fireplaces in the house. The number to the company is 804-748-0402. When we bought our house we could not use any of the fireplaces. I think the money we spent on this is one of the best house improvement investments we’ve made. I’m not a real estate person, but I would bet a safe, guaranteed, lined chimney that can be regularly used does add value to a sale price. Either way, it’s worth it to us, because we love the fireplaces and use them all the time.”
