Chimney Masons

I'm sitting at home right now waiting for the chimney guy to come,
inspect, hopefully do some repairs and perhaps sweep. I've worked with
these guys before--Nayaug Chimney Services (or something like that) and
have had a pretty good experience. I'll let you know if anything goes
awry with this visit, but if not I do recommend them. Hope this helps.

I would suggest Bill Parsons for the chimney work. Bill is good with
restoration work and actually has done work on Columbia Street in the past
few weeks.

Floor refinishers

I’ve had some clients use Bill’s of West Hartford for their floor sanding/refinishing and he seems to know quite a bit and they were happy with the work he performed.  http://www.billsofwesthartford.com/  He’s been refinishing floors for years, so he’s probably seen it all and can answer your questions, if someone else in the group can’t.

I have heard good things about Gould Asphalt Maintenance, run by Jeff Gould.  He can be reached at 860-236-8127 and, I believe, does free estimates.

I use Kennedy Plumbing and Heating and Abbate Plumbing. They are both in Hartford and I use them 4-5 times per month (different projects) and they have always been reliable.

I have used Gallicchio Plumbing in Newington for years.  He's not the cheapest, but I find him honest, reliable and careful.  It's Dan Gallicchio and his number is 666-2900.

Steve Langan has done some very nice work for clients.  He’s based out of West Hartford, 860-521-1203

Call Len Morneau Wallpaper and Painting in West Hartford. They only do
interior work and specialize in restoration quality jobs. They just spent 6
days (2-3 guys) painting our dining room alone and it turned out
beautiful...much better than we could have imagined. They have a great eye
for detail and noticed and fixed things that we didn't even notice (and we
tend to be picky). They're more expensive than most, but on a value
comparison, very much worth it. Len's office number is: (860) 658-1411.

I’ve recommended Eastern Waterproofing to a few clients and they always do a good job.  They typically come in middle of the road with their quotes and I believe their systems have a 20 year guarantee.  They’re based out of South Windsor and work a fairly large geography around the Hartford area.  http://easternwaterproofing.com/
