"I was very pleased with the professionalism displayed by Jim and his work.
I was also pleased with Sue's efforts in coordinating the work and following up with me to get it done."
--From Pete in Brentwood
"We have an older WW2 era home with original fireplace that needed some love this year: smoky, leaky, etc. After Jim came out on a very rare 70 degree day in November of 2012 and did some cement work and flashing repair, we no longer have problems! Very pleased with him and Sue and are so glad to recommend them for any chimney and fireplace needs. Thanks, guys!"
--From Kristie, Historic Sylvan Park area, Nashville
"After hiring another local fireplace repair company that advertises all over the place and then getting stuck with a very poor repair job, I was lucky to find Jim Rosinbum of A-1 High Hat Chimney Sweeps. He evaluated my situation and was able to fix all the problems that the other company left behind. He did a top quality repair job for a reasonable price. I will not use anyone else in Nashville for my chimney repair work. Thanks for your commitment to service and excellence!"
--From Todd in Nashville
"Excellent job, Jim! I had no idea that someone could fix a chimney that is on a house that old (cira. 1932) and do such an amazing job! I was very pleased with your work."

"Due to age and storm damage, our chimney needed rebuilding, a new crown, and chimney caps. A friend recommended Jim Rosinbum, owner of A-1 High Hat Chimney Sweeps. We have been most pleased with the efficiency, workmanship, and attention to detail that Jim displayed in completing the necessary work. We recommend his work without reservation."
--Wade, a new customer from the Crieve Hall area

We've been using them for over twelve years. Jim is also great at fixing leaking roofs around the chimney, better than any roofers we've worked with."

--Susan Saunders, broker and realtor for American Heritage, Nashville
"A-1 High Hat Chimney Sweeps has done work for me for several years. This year they had to waterproof the chimney crown, clean and waterproof the chimney, replace the flashing, and repair the firebox. Jim gave me an estimate and then he came and did all the work. Jim worked really hard in hot weather and did all the work in two visits. He was very professional in all dealings, and I would recommend A-1 to anyone. I already have recommended them to one customer."

"I've been a customer of A-1 since '93. Jim's a pro! The work is done properly and with great care. A-1 is a family run business worth supporting."
--Steven from Green Hills
As fall approaches, I can't help but think of you and how you've taken care of our two fireplaces in our home and the woodburning stove in our cabin over the past 18 years. And, while on vacation, you stopped in to inspect our fireplace at our beach house in Gulf Shores.
As you know, I burn the fireplace in our family room 24/7 as soon as there is a chill in the air. After having our chimney fire due to not cleaning enough and/or burning "green" wood and you then installing our Golden Flue Liner in not one but both our fireplaces in our main home, I feel so much safer and secure knowing the fire can't escape the liners and spread to the rest of our home. I appreciate, too, you teaching me how to start and burn a fire "properly" to eliminate so much creosote build up in our chimneys. You have taught me so much!!!
You are such a perfectionist, honest, and so professional when you do your job, I feel as though you may not know how much I appreciate you and your work. You not only have become a friend to me and my family, but (as you know!) someone we not only rely on but depend on.
If I haven't thanked you enough before, I want to "THANK YOU" now. You're one in a million.
--Glenda Fink, Franklin
