I can't begin to tell you how fast you should call Mark of The LA
Sweep if you need help with anything fireplace or chimney
related. I am a Realtor and twice, now, Mark has come to the
rescue after another inspector has given me a drastically
over-priced estimate and, with his trademark honesty, detailed
exactly why the repairs in question needn't be anywhere near as
expensive as previously stated. He has many years experience
and knowledge, so you feel completely confident with his
assessment. My clients are important to me, personally and
professionally, so trusting him is very important, and my clients
end up saving a bundle. He is ridiculously honest, his work is
superb, and he is so much fun to be around. He is at the very top
of my list of inspectors that I lean on to take care of my clients.
Great integrity.

Great experience! Mark was friendly, communicative, and
efficient. He seems like a very honest and cool guy. The price
was more than fair, and he left everything clean. Highly

Um, wow. Mark was honest, professional, and extremely

Six years ago another company told me I could harm my family if
I did not complete about $4000 in repairs to my chimney, so I
have not used my fireplace since (I don't have $4000 lying
around). Mark looked over the recommendations that were given
to me and showed me that most of them couldn't have even been
determined without pulling the whole top off the chimney,
something that definitely wasn't done. A few of the
recommendations were legit; the rest was all invention.

Bottom line, he is going to do some much more minor repairs at
about a tenth the estimate I was given by the other company.

Someone who's honest is worth his weight in gold. All the great
reviews were right on the money! Thanks Mark.
