Justin and the team at MCP have done terrific work for us over the years at 2 houses now, most recently in March 2019. They've cleaned chimneys, diagnosed difficulties and found remedies (we needed a chimney cap for one house; have some firewall cracks in our new home's chimney). They are always prompt, tidy and observant. It is a pleasure to post a "perfect" rating for a business like theirs. Katherine Farquhar

I highly recommend MCP Chimney & Masonry Inc. as they did a very professional job on my chimney repair including the flashing and recementing the chimney top. They also sanded down and fixed my furnace pipe and painted the inside of my fireplace black and it looks new again! Also cleaned up and were very professional. Thank you Ryan, Zach and Will! Great job.

GOOD JOB HAPPY CUSTOMER!On Friday 5, April, 2019, I had an employee from MCP, Chance Bradshaw, come to my house to inspect my gas chimney which wasn’t working.Chance was very skillful, professional, confident, polite and explained what the chimney needed to have done and left the area clean after he finished.After he changed some parts, the chimney started working perfectly well and was like brand new.Only because I was very happy and pleased with Chance doing such a fantastic job, I added your MCP company to my contact list for future chimney inspection and cleaning. I also referred your company to a friend.Thank you!Best regards,

MCP worked on my two chimneys and they were great. Ryan was very professional and knowledgeable both during the inspection and the day of work. He went beyond his way to leave a customer satisfied. Highly recommended.

I had an appointment scheduled for today and Justin came out right on time and took care of my chimney cleaning. He also came out about a year and a half ago and installed a pipe in my chimney, replaced my small wood stove with a larger one I had in the basement, fixed my brick work and installed a very nice limestone mantle. He and his crew were very courteous and nice to deal with. Very reasonable pricing, too.

Ryan is amazing. I have used him for multiple jobs now, and he always goes above and beyond to make sure that I am happy. I have never had any problem with any of the work they've done for me over the past year. I would highly recommend using them.

I was very satisfied with MCP's installation of a wood burning stove and chimney liner several years ago. When I started getting water in the basement of my old house at the foundation I decided to try MCP again. Starting with Justin's honest , practical estimate and with Robbie's response to questions and concerns and ultimately to the excellent execution of the job by Jamie and his crew of Edwin and Ricardo, I am very happy to have had MCP take on this project. Working with a house over 80 years old always presents surprises and Jamie, his crew and Robbie were flexible and attentive to the special circumstances that came up without having to adjust the cost estimate.

We had a chimney company come last fall to give us an estimate on our leaky chimney. They proposed $7,600 to get it working safely again, and about $3,700 just to stop the leaks. Ouch. A friend recommended MCP for a second opinion. I couldn't be more pleased with their professionalism and honesty. They explained everything to me, even reviewed the report of the other chimney company (per my request). I wanted to be safe! It all cost $1800, and our chimney has remained dry. Couldn't be happier. Totally recommend MCP.

Wow. 1. They were well priced. 2. They listened to my timeline issues. 3. They started AND finished earlier than promised. 4. They were respectful of my yard and cleaned up neatly. 5. The work looks great. Well done to all on the MCP crew.

We had the owner and his son at our home to give us an estimate to install/convert our fireplace into a wood burning stove. With their advice, knowledge and guidance we decided to just replace are damper, clean our chimneys and install a stainless steel chimney cap. It was a pleasure having them come into our home and give us their honest expert opinion. We highly recommend speaking with them before making any changes and using them for their services.

Timely, professional, and very knowledgeable. Very customer oriented. Repairs and waterproofing were done sooner than expected and it looks great. Only negative I can think of is that the price seemed a little high for the small amount of chimney, but I don't really have any other estimates to compare it with. I would definitely use them again if needed.

Justin from MCP Chimney and Masonry was recommended to me by a friend who recently had a big rebuild done by him and was very happy. I only had some small fixes needed (damper, doors, etc) but I still was received warmly when I called about getting an appointment, and scheduled quickly.Justin came out today and showed us how to close the flue manually AND wrote an estimate for an all new damper if we want that. He also fixed the doors AND wrote an estimate for new ones if I want that. He charged us nothing for the hour he spent at my house, and left us with everything functioning for no charge, as well as estimates for upgrades if I want to do that. Highly recommend!

Prompt service after the call to set up an evaluation of our chimney. Honest evaluation and communication of what needed to be done and what we could wait to do. Great experience all around and we'll be going with MCP in the future, for sure!

Justin showed up when he said he would.He was friendly and professional. He cleaned and tested the chimney from the inside of the house. After testing for airflow, he was not satisfied the job was complete. He climbed onto the roof in the rain[very impressive] to clean out an abandoned bee's nest, or hornets.He retested for airflow. It was a virtual vacuum sound. Great job MCP and such a reasonable price

MCP was recommended on our NextDoor site. Our neighbors' descriptions of their experiences with MCP matched ours. MCP was responsive, down-to-earth, respectful of our home and our needs. We purchased a fireplace insert that was recommended by the sales rep and it has met our needs for safety, warmth, and limited maintenance. It is easy to use--we've used it almost every day since it was installed. Installation took about 5 hours. The sales rep went over in detail the pros and cons of what we were considering. We chose MCP based on neighbor recommendations, our interaction with their staff, the quality of their products, and the fact they would be able to address any masonry concerns that we had. Installation was smooth-going. I highly recommend MCP as an investment in your home.

We called them in to clean our chimney. They let us know that it needed to be relined. They did both quickly and for a great price. We are very happy with the service and will call them again.

I had a great experience MCP. Mike took the time to answer all my questions about my two chimneys. He and Justin gave us some practical advice instead of just telling us we needed a liner and proovided us with some different options, all of which would save us money. I highly recommend them for all your chimney needs.

We were so impressed with the high quality of service and work we received from MCP. We ended up having a major issue with the inside of our wood burning stove and MCP went above and beyond to make sure that they could fit us into their busy schedule so we could have that heat source before the winter cold. Their crew and Justin worked amazingly that day. The stove works better than it ever has! Thank you MCP!

We had MCP come out and inspect and clean our chimney. They were prompt, courteous and clean. Inspection showed we didn’t need cleaning. Tech gave us tips on how to maintain our chimney and didn’t charge us for the service call. Great local family owned business!

Justin arrived during the appointment window and gave me a clear and concise explanation of my chimney situation and the options for resolution. I received a free quotation that covered all of my options and a fact sheet about the work that would be done. I felt very comfortable with his approach and his assessment. Thank you Justin!!!!!

Over the past several years, Justin has expertly handled all of our chimney needs, including installation of a beautiful wood stove that keeps us warm all winter, a chimney liner for the hot water heater in our basement, and a new dryer vent line from our house. In every instance, he was professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. I highly recommend Justin and MCP for any chimney related issue.

Great customer service, very knowledgeable, reasonable prices!Brandon did some troubleshooting on our fireplace/chimney on a Saturday, and I was impressed with how knowledgeable he is. Another company did some *cheap* fixes a few years ago and we weren't able to use the fireplace. In less than an hour, there was a roaring fire in my now-fixed fireplace, without smoke in the house! Thank you Brandon and MCP!

MCP Chimney & Masonry has been doing work for me for over 10 years. They are courteous, professional while also being warm and friendly. The staff are upfront and very informative about their services. Justin was fast, friendly and thorough. He checked out the caps they installed a few years ago after fixing the flue and cleaning the chimney! I will always use them and recommend them highly.

We had an inspection performed today by Justin. The work was very thorough and Justin is extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to explain what work is needed and what to look out for going forward. He is extremely knowledgeable and was very honest regarding recommendations of what is needed in the near term vs potentially later on. We will continue to use MCP Chimney & Masonry based on our experience today without any hesitation. Highly recommended.

We switched from Miller to MCP this season and are glad we did. Justin was very thorough, knowledgeable, and helpful. He took the extra time to answer our questions and concerns. We now have a clear idea of what to expect (or plan ahead for replacing) as far as long-term usability of our wood stove, liner, etc. We will certainly be calling MCP for our chimney needs in the future.

I recently had my porch redone and had an awesome experience with MCP. The quote was very reasonable and the quality of work was outstanding. The customer service was excellent. Justin did a great job breaking down the work that needed to be done and someone always answers the phone when you have questions. Considering my previous experiences with other contractors, I can confidently say that MCP is the best I've ever worked with!

we got a pretty high estimate by the chimney inspector and when we asked around for recommendations to get a second opinion, MCP came as the highest recommended company. Ryan was able to come and meet us on a moments notice( we were under the gun trying to close on our old house) we discussed the options and worked a plan of attack for a much lower cost then the original estimate from the inspector. The whole fireplace needed to be replaced and I was concerned with the restoration work around it since the whole wall needed to be busted but MCP handled it all and the workmanship was great. They not only did the fireplace work but all the dry-walling and painting as well for a turnkey project, no need to get different contractors for wall repair and painting. I will say I highly recommend them for any chimney and fireplace needs. Below is a pic of the finished work

McP Chimney & Masonry diagnosed the problems with our chimney speedily, solved them fast, and suggested ways to avoid further trouble in future. They even helped prune back tree branches that threatened our chimney cap and flue.They were easy to deal with, fast to schedule, prompt, and did good work. If we have problems in future, we will definitely call them.

We used MCP for an update to our fireplace mantel and firebox. They did a beautiful job. I had ordered a custom limestone mantel from France. They did a superb job with the installation, and the ivory herringbone pattern of the firebox is simply beautiful. Careful work and attention to detail. Would definitely use them again and recommend them!

It was a great pleasure working with Ryan from MCP Chimney. Honest and very thorough work. This was our first time using a chimney service and the first company we used gave us some BS story of needing to replace this and that. Called MCP Chimney for a second opinion and thank goodness we did. The work provided by MCP Chimney was professional from start to finish. They even provided pics! Highly recommended to use MCP Chimney. I've already referred one of my neighbors and will use them for small or large jobs.

They gave us an detailed quote on a gas to wood fireplace conversion where other companies would not even come look at it. They encouraged us to get quotes from other companies. In the end, we opted to not convert the fireplace and asked MCP to come repair our gas fireplace that another company attempted to fix but failed to get it working properly. Both gentlemen that came to our house were very polite and clean. The gas fireplace repair job did not take as long as expected so they did not charge us the full quoted price to look at it. I highly recommend MCP.

Excellent service that went above and beyond my expectations. The technician was knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. His inspection was thorough. He also showed me pictures of the inside of the chimney with a clear explanation of what needs to be done. MCP service is comprehensive, from repairs to installation. Very fair prices too. I highly recommend this company. Thank you.

We had an excellent experience with MCP Chimney Services in November 2017. We were referred to them as authorized installers of the gas fireplace that we knew we wanted. Branden came out to consult on which type of mantel and surround, and he was very helpful in choosing one, and was able to get an estimate from the office, on the cost of installation, within minutes. The cost, including the materials and labor, was extremely competitive! Chance and Guy came on time to do the installation and after all the work was done, Chance stayed to explain the entire system, and make sure I could work everything, before leaving. The whole team was friendly and helpful, and we would work with MCP again in the future without any hesitation. They did excellent and timely work, finishing a big job in just one day.

About Us

Let me introduce myself and tell you about us. I’m Mike, the founder and owner of MCP Chimney and Masonry. MCP is a company I started twenty-five years ago with only an old pickup, three hundred dollars, and a mission to treat all of my customers like family. Today, each MCP employee is trained to provide the highest quality chimney work. We want to be more than just your average contractor, we want to be the personal chimney and masonry company that you can trust and rely on for a lifetime.

As you can imagine, trustworthiness in a chimney company is paramount. Customers cannot easily see chimney work that is recommended. MCP treats our customers the way we like to be treated as customers.

I am so grateful that our customers’ trust in us over the years has spurred our growth despite minimal advertising. These word of mouth recommendations of our fiercely loyal customer base has pushed MCP from a single employee with a single truck to twenty-five year-round employees working in fully staffed offices. We hope you will give us a chance to be your trusted chimney company. We will work hard to keep you happy. ~ Mike Pentifallo
