Press Kit – Full Service Chimney™
Full Service Chimney was founded in 1987 by Robert and Mary Jo Berry. As the children of World War II veterans, they were both compelled by a strong duty to serve the community and provide a service that keeps them safe and comfortable year-round. The Full Service Chimney difference is seen in the way team members treat one another and our customers. Courtesy, professionalism, and craftsmanship are the standards to which they hold each other accountable.
Robert Berry was the first service provider in the Kansas City metropolitan area to become a Certified Chimney Sweep through the rigorous CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep Program. This certification, plus additional training, is a critical part of Full Service Chimney’s focus on customer satisfaction and safety – the company requires all lead chimney technicians to achieve this same level of certification. Full Service Chimney incorporates modern technology with proven chimney and fireplace services to allow customers to make informed decisions.
Full Service Chimney offers various chimney and fireplace services to the Kansas City metropolitan area, including chimney repair, chimney inspection, and chimney cleaning. Hiring a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep ensures that services are completed by a professional that can deliver proven results while staying compliant with state fire codes, associated regulations, and industry standards.
