| Featured Testimonial

“Last fall we had a chimney cap installed, as well as the whole interior of our chimney redone by Owens Chimney Systems. Taylor and his crew were awesome. Taylor made sure we understood the whole process by explaining the condition of our chimney, how chimneys work, and everything they were doing. He showed us pictures of the inside and outside before, during, and after. He also suggested to have the inside of the firebox painted with a special black paint (it was white). We googled it and decided to let him paint it. It looks so much better! We had a lot of questions for Taylor as our chimney had been converted to gas but was originally a wood-burning fireplace. We wanted to use it with wood but were afraid to convert it back to wood-burning. Taylor was very kind and patient answering our questions. After hearing all the pros and cons from Taylor, we felt we were ready to make an informed decision… and man, we could not be happier! He gave us tips we put into practice and we had a wonderful season with many days spent by the fire with our family. As we start another season of days spent by the fire, we wanted to thank Owens Chimney Systems and Taylor for all the wonderful memories they have helped us make this past year, and hopefully for many more to come.”
