“For 20 years Artful Chimney Service has been working with Vermont Gas Systems and our customers to ensure safe and reliable venting systems.

They are able to accommodate all aspects of chimney work; including cleaning, inspection, removing blockages, and installing metal liners. During the heating season a problem such as a plugged chimney becomes an emergency call requiring immediate attention; the owner/operator (Dave Kehoe) has always been quick to respond to our customer’s needs.

Artful Chimney installs around 350 chimney liners a year for customers converting to Natural gas. We have found Dave Kehoe to be honest, knowledgeable, and easy to work with.”

“Dave is the only person we trust to keep our chimney safe and maintained every year. Artful Chimney Sweep is one of the most honest, and reliable business.  I have had other chimney sweeps in the past, who would always try to sell me something that I did not need. Dave goes above and beyond the cleaning, and does it well in a very professional and courteous way. He has even made us fire before he left. I believe in supporting local, family owned  business, as I am a 3 generation business owner myself. I recommend Dave and Artful Chimney Sweep to all friends and customers.”

“David Kehoe is one of the most honest, dependable, and knowledgeable professionals I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with.  David takes great pride in every job -no matter its size. He is a true craftsman who stands by his work, which is a rare quality in today’s world. David Kehoe of The Artful Chimney Service has performed fireplace maintenance and chimney liner installation work in my home multiple times during the past ten years. My experience with David and the Artful Chimney Service has always been exceptional. The Artful Chimney Service delivers the highest quality of work while always being professional, knowledgeable and friendly. David treats all of his customers like family – taking the time to explain what work needs to be done and why. If something does not need to be done, he will not try to sell you extra services. When the Artful Chimney Service does a job, it is always done right, the first time. No call-backs required! I give David my highest recommendation. I personally would not trust anyone else to work on my fireplace or chimney.”

“Much to my horror, I discovered that the chimney on my house, which was built in 1925, had started raining bricks. Realizing the danger this problem posed, I searched Angie’s List for chimney repair and found that exceptional reviews had been posted for Artful Chimney Service. I called immediately and was warmly received by Shirley, who quickly arranged for David to come out to assess the situation.

David arrived, right on time and made short work of sorting out the problem, giving me a rough estimate on the spot. Never having had chimney work done before, I had braced myself for a goodly sum. David however, bowled me over with his estimate for the repair! I didn’t think people these days even climbed up on ladders, for what he had quoted me! Not to mention, in the meantime, I had discovered that David had previously done work on the chimney at my father’s house. The house being up for sale, was recently inspected and the chimney work viewed by various professionals, who raved about the quality of the work there. I couldn’t believe my good fortune in having happened upon this man!

A time was set up and David came back to do the job at my house. He wasted no time in getting on with the project and I am totally confident in the job he did. What’s more, David is truly a delightful person and a pleasure to work with!! I highly recommend Artful Chimney Service, to anyone and everyone who has a chimney in need of attention! David is most assuredly the VERY BEST!!”
