About Us

Why choose Chimney Cricket? Simple. We love chimneys! We are more than certified sweeps, inspectors, and masons. Each of our technicians share a passion for their work. We love the challenge of troubleshooting chimney problems and enjoy restoring masonry chimneys.

Family Owned & Operated

Chimney Cricket was founded nearly 30 years ago by a local mason named Phil Taggart, who had a passion for both masonry and thermodynamics. Phil was first trained as a mason’s helper in 1968 and spent two decades building fireplaces and chimneys all around Delaware County and the Philadelphia area.
