We had a chimney liner put in and they did an awesome job, on time and very respectful! Initially we had Mr. Smalling come out to look things over and he gave us a fair estimate and recommendations for repairs in order of importance. Caleb, Thomas Banks, and James Y.,
did the chimney liner today, all were very friendly and took time to explain what was needed and what they did. Excellent! We highly recommend!

Gary came this morning to do our fireplace chimney inspection and to check out another brick chimney that was starting to crumble.
He did a very good job and was very professional and courteous. He explained what he was going to do and answered all my questions. After all was done I feel like we received A+ service.
I also just want to say that I really appreciate Gary‘s honesty and his taking the time to share his knowledge and advice with me!
I will wait for the estimate on the crumbling chimney but feel like I already know that Smalling Masonry will be doing the work.

They did a thorough inspection of my fireplace and sent me the report via email. They are being careful with Covid. Inspector wore a mask and kept me informed of his findings.

Smalling did excellent work on our home with extensive brick replacement and repair, as well as chimney sealing and repair. Bidding and scheduling through Roger was easy and very prompt, and the crews showed up right on schedule. Storm did a great job managing the two crews, communicating with us, and even completing some of the work directly, all with a great attitude and pleasant demeanor. The extensive work was completed in less than a day!

After several reschedules because of windy conditions the stainless steel chimney chase cap has been installed. The Smalling workers were very willing to meet my requests for adjustments to the flue components.

Gary was kind, knowledgable and patient with us as we asked many questions! He did a thorough job inspecting our chimney and laid out all our options for us. We will definitely use them again, and will recommend them without hesitation.

Update: Caleb and Mike came out and did the necessary repairs. They were punctual, friendly, knowledgable, and good communicators regarding the whole process. We have recommended the company to others and will continue to do so! Thanks so much for your great work!

Roger was just here to inspect our situation in order to give us an estimate for work needed to alleviate a leak around our chimney. We haven’t even received the estimate but I was so impressed with Roger’s knowledge and willingness that I felt motivated to write this positive review. I feel 100% confident about the integrity of this company. I am guessing their workmanship would match. Call these people!

As a residential Realtor I work with many different contractors. Gary and the crew at Smalling Masonry are one of my favorite contractors to work with. They are always punctual, professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I frequently refer Smalling Masonry for fireplace and chimney inspections, fireplace and chimney repairs, and all kinds of masonry work. They have done work on my personal home, along with incredible masonry repairs/rebuilding on a commercial property I own.

Gary and Jenny at Smalling Masonry were both outstanding to deal with. I thought we had a problem with a chimney cap that needed to be replaced. After scheduling a time to come out (right on time and with notice), Gary inspected our chimney and told me all was well given my unique fireplace damper. He refused my offer to bill me for his time. This family owned business has done work for others in our neighborhood who are extremely satisfied with their work quality. If we ever need masonry work of any kind, Smalling will get our business.

Gary just left my house. I had him come out to take a look at a few different areas of vertical cracks. He was very informative and told me that I was able to fix it myself AND gave us a little bit the supplies to do it. For FREE! These guys will be my go to for any future major masonary work. Thanks and I will send you all the business I can!

The technicians that showed up were professional and friendly. They got straight to the work and provided an assessment with professional equipment that ‘wanted what I want’. They explained each point made and offered options to me so I could decide what is right for my family. This positive experience contrasts with a sharp negative experience from another vendor, highlighting how much better Smalling is.

The before and after photos speak for themselves. The new stacks look great. We have since used our fireplace several times and everything appears to be working as it should. Gary initially quoted using photos we provided and then came out to quote himself. He was friendly, straightforward and the price offered for repairs was very competitive. Jenny at the office patiently answered emails and returned voicemails. Their good communication skills set them apart from most of the other chimney/masonry companies we considered. The wait from quoting to repairs was significant, but ultimately they were able to complete the repairs a few weeks ahead of schedule and the timeline worked for us. The guys that came out to complete the repairs did a good job cleaning up and my wife and I could tell they took pride in their work. I appreciate a family run business that cares about good service along with craftsmanship. We are looking forward to many years of use out of our fireplaces and we will be returning customers for our future chimney service needs.

My wife and I purchased a home that had a defective wood burning fireplace. Gary discussed options for us and we ultimately decided to replace it with a gas log fireplace. We had a fantastic experience from the initial quote to repair day. They had an entire team out on repair day and worked very efficiently. Everyone was kind, professional, and took pride in their work. I would recommend Smalling Masonry to anyone in need of masonry work!

Gary and his team were very professional and worked around the clock for nearly a week to complete the project in time. We were very happy with the final product and would recommend them for other similar projects. We included an image to show how great the stone looks and the masonry work is also top notch. They did not place the fireplace, but were willing to work with us to make sure that there was a seamless transition from the fireplace contractors to the masonry contracting.

From the initial contact, I received caring and prompt customer service. Sadly, this basic premise is missing from so many contractors these days so when I find it, I like to spread the good word! Jenny in the office was friendly and efficient and Gary, who did the inspection, was knowledgeable and professional. Appreciated both of them very much and would highly recommend Smalling Masonry!

We were very happy with Smalling Masonry!! We called Gary Smalling because we experienced some water in our fireplace. He said he was in the area and came to assess the chimney within 30 minutes! Amazing!! With other providers, especially in the beginning of the Quarantine, we wouldn’t have seen anyone for days! Gary was very thorough…he went up to the roof, in to the crawl space and then the attic to inspect all areas and because there was a lot of rain predicted, he ensured that we got a new chimney cap within one week!! I will recommend him to everyone!!!

I’m 100% satisfied. I’m actually going to miss them!! Thanks so much!!

Smalling installed a direct vent fireplace and did a wonderful job. Gary managed all the details. They took down our old chimney, had the new box built, and had the siding and roof finished up so it all looks like it’s been there from the start. Like I said, Gary was in charge and he kept all the work going so things were done right. I highly recommend Smalling Masonry.

Gary and his crew are very knowledgeable and take pride in their work. During renovation, they installed a chimney liner, cap and a new wood burning insert which included trimming the interior limestone masonry to fit the new insert. They took great care to listen to my needs and were very patient as I was extremely nervous about modifying the interior limestone. They returned a year later to clean it after our reno was complete and took great care with our new hardwood floors. I highly recommend Smalling Masonry!
