Two years ago we moved into the garden level of a brownstone in Brooklyn and wanted to renovate our fireplace.  We contacted Big Apple Chimney and were thrilled with the results. They helped us create a raised brick fire place with wood storage below.  Raising the interior of the firebox allows us to see the fire from many more areas of our apartment and the wood storage is very helpful when the weather is inclement.  The craftsmen working with us also suggested taking the brick all the way up to the ceiling (removing some plaster board wall) and this required excellent mason skills in blending old and newer bricks.  The outcome looks like it was always that way.  Friends and family rave about our fireplace and ask to come and sit in front of it to enjoy the beauty and the warmth of a wood fire.  We can’t say enough about the excellent work and service of Big Apple Chimney.  We highly recommend them.

 “Hi Jason and Richard

Thank you again for all of your help with this project!

Jason and I are so excited for our new chimney!! :)”

 “Excellent!!! Thank you!!!!”

THANK YOU Again!!! :)

I used Jason with big apple chimney to install/open up an old fireplace in my brooklyn brownstone.  i did a bunch of renovations and construction work in this apt and used several companies, and i have to say that Jason was BY FAR the favorite of ALL the workmen I hired.  He spent MANY tireless hours with me discussing my vision (i tend to be a bit OCD when it comes to getting what i want, but he remained patient and conscientious) and in the end the work was BEAUTIFUL and beyond what i had even imagined possible.  Specifically, I had some brick work that the previous owners had painted with a shiny shellac and i wanted the bricks to look antiqued, he had to try several different techniques and would not settle for anything less than the exact look i wanted... this was extremely difficult to achieve but Jason did not stop until it was perfect.  All of his crew members were nice, extremely professional, and very reliable - i have had a big problem in the past with many contractors completing 90% of the work and then disappearing with 100% of the money - not the case with big apple, the work was begun and completed exactly when they said it would be, 100%.  My fireplace works great and is constantly complimented by my guests.  I would recommend big apple to anyone in brooklyn wanting a beautiful and perfectly functioning fireplace!

Big Apple Chimney did a wonderful job in my home they were detail oriented, knowledgeable and polite and kept my home from being invaded by the massive amounts of chimney/construction dust created by such work, they built a tent and sealed themselves inside, when they finally came out and took it down, i had a new chimney liner, a new roof chimney and a restored beautiful fireplace, all for a good price and it only took three days!

We called Big Apple when we found that earlier work was incorrectly done.
They found that the situation was actually dangerous.
They removed the old liner and replaced it.
In short the fix has worked perfectly.
The job was very professionally done and all in one day!
I have already recommended Big Apple to my neighbor. Thanks.
