Saturday Surcharge

  • We often offer Saturday service one Saturday each month during the busy season, for an additional $50 fee. This date is TBD each month, based on the technicians’ availability. If you would like a Saturday appointment, please let the scheduler know. We cannot guarantee Saturday service, but will offer it based on customer interest and technician availability.

Safety Fee

  • Sometimes, our technicians encounter a roof that’s too steep, too high, or otherwise too dangerous for them to be on it without safety equipment. This can range anywhere from an extra ladder or two (and the time required to set them up safely) all the way to scaffolding or a boom lift for particularly tall or treacherous roofs. The safety fee is determined by the techs at the time of service, but is a minimum $25 surcharge. This fee is one of the reasons we ask for roof pitch and the number of stories in your home on our service request form;  knowing as much as possible about your home helps us to let you know in advance if we feel a safety fee is likely to be needed, or if we’ll need additional safety equipment.

Trip Charge

  • For locations more than 20 miles from our showroom, we do apply a nominal trip charge to cover vehicle expenses and travel time. That trip charge is $4/mile for addresses 20-30 miles away from our showroom, and $6/mile for addresses more than 30 miles away. For example, a job 24 miles from Charlottesville would incur a $16 trip charge, while one 34 miles away would incur an $84 charge.

Off-Season Rates

  • In order to encourage our customers to schedule their routine winter maintenance during our slower summer months (April 1st – August 31st), we offer an off-season discount on chimney sweeping and gas maintenance. This discount does not apply to assessments, awning service, grill service, insurance/real estate inspections/reports, masonry work, chimney relining, or installations.

No-show fee

  • IMPORTANT: Please give us a call at least 24 hours in advance if you cannot keep your appointment. We do charge a $50 fee to help cover our employees’ time and vehicle expenses if we don’t hear from you by then.
