Owner Oscar Lavalle is a very nice, sincere person. I called him in to clean my chimney and also fix several course of bricks at the top of the chimney stack.

Two years later, I've found that the work was not done properly. Certain debris that I knew was on the smoke shelf were still there (another chimney sweep showed me what he found, and I recognized the debris immediately).

On going on to the the roof, I found that Oscar's staff had simply applied mortar into the cracks without taking the time to grind out the old mortar first. If you don't, the new mortar simply falls away over a year or so, as freeze-thaw weathering sets in.

Overall, I have to conclude that the chimney sweeping and chimney repair work was incompetent. I have another firm coming in to fix the problems that I had paid Metropolitan to fix. Not recommended
