Chimney needed replacing. Top Hat sent Henry and Ernie. They were superb and did a beautiful job. If we could give a higher rating, we would.

Chimney repair

Would like to thank Adam and his team for a job well done. Needed chimney repair as bricks were spalling due to years of freeze and thaw cycles. Top ten layers of bricks were replaced as well as the concrete cap. All work was completed in less than a day with no inconvenience to myself or my neighbour. Area was cleaned up so I didn't even notice they were there. Would definitely recommend.

Super awesome experience!

I used this company for my chimney rebuild this past summer and I was super impressed by the results. It somehow looks like it matches the rest of the house AND brand new at the same time! I also just got my chimney cleaned by them and was very pleased with the service and friendliness. These guys will definitely be my go-to's for everything chimney related.

Great Service, Fair Price

I would highly recommend Top Hat Chimney to anyone with a woodburning fireplace! I was having issues with smoke backing up into my house, so I called them out for an inspection. It turns out I had a large bird's nest in the chimney. Mario gave me a quote to remove the nest and I found it very reasonable given the amount of work he then did to make sure the chimney was completely clear. I was surprised at how clean everything was left given how much material came out of the chimney. I was completely satisfied and impressed with the service! I would definitely recommend these guys. They know what they're doing!!!

Stainless Steel Chimney Cleaning.

I called Top Hat Chimney to have my stainless-steel chimney cleaned. It had not been cleaned since installation, approximately five years ago. An appointment was booked for two days later. Adam showed up as scheduled. He removed the flue plate and cleaned the chimney from the fireplace side. He used a plastic bristled brush so as not to damage the stainless-steel. He had laid out a ground sheet before starting and left things absolutely spotless. He advised having it cleaned every 30 fires or every two years, whichever comes first. Overall I am very satisfied with Top Hat and would not hesitate in recommending them for chimney cleaning services.

More about Top Hat Chimney

Standing above the roofline, chimneys are fully exposed to rain and snow and are affected by winter's freeze/thaw cycles. They are therefore one of the first places on a house to deteriorate. This deterioration usually takes many years to begin but then progresses rapidly. Cracked or spalled bricks, damaged flue tiles or concrete caps, or a leaning structure are signs that the chimney needs immediate attention.

Top Hat Chimney specializes in all aspects of chimney repair and rebuilding. Our brick masons are unsurpassed in their level of expertise, and take pride in their workmanship. They take great care to protect the roof and ground so that all work will be completed in a clean and safe manner.

All of our work is guaranteed against defect in materials and workmanship.

We are happy to provide references from other satisfied customers in your area.
