Aelite Chimney Specialties – The Only Chimney Services Call You Need To Make If You Live In Palatine
Nick came out because a previous company that came to clean our chimney scammed us. Nick spent quality time explaining everything to myself and my wife and made sure we not only knew about the intricacies of a chimney, but knew how to use it in and out. I was doubting finding a chimney company since we moved in to our house a year ago, but Aelite now has a customer for life. If I ever have any issues remotely close to the chimney, Julie and Nick are getting my phone call.
