A story which reflects how our employees feel about our organization and the service we provide, as recounted by Dave Myers, founder and owner of American Professional Chimney and Masonry:

The chimney technition, who had been with me for the greatest length of time, once asked me, “Who do you think is the best chimney company?” (in the D.C. Metro Area.) Thinking he was speaking in terms of the largest or most profitable, I said, “I don’t know,” and I named the 2 largest chimney services in the area as possibilities. His response was, “Don’t you think we’re the best chimney service in the D.C. area?” I said, “Well, maybe, but why do you say that?”

He stated, “Because, you take the time to explain everything to the customer. If there’s a problem (with our work and many cases even if there is an issue with something we are not actaully not responsible for) you fix it for free and you spend more time than any other company to take good care of the customer, that’s why I think we’re the best chimney company.”

And I said, ‘You know, you’re right. We are the best chimney company. We care more about our customers and making them happy than any other company.”

There is no chimney service that puts the time and effort we do into finding out what best suits our customersthan we do, explaining to them all of their options, so they can decide their best course of action, given their specific circumstances and then follows through with the best possible service.That is what separates us from all the other chimney services in the D.C. area.

That’s the truth and I am extremely fortunate and grateful to have office and field personel who all exemplify these values, my values, the values of Catherine Wison the manager and the values of this organization.blockquote>I give great credit for this to my wife, Bertha, who found and hired Catherine and who has always been an example of unduantable integrity.
