About Us

Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service was founded in 2006 by Robbie Markey in the Raleigh/Durham area after falling in love with “God’s Country.” He landed in North Carolina after moving from Ireland to New York and then to Apex. He found home here and wanted a way to give back to his neighbors and to protect the land he has come to appreciate so much. What he found was the wonderful world of a chimney sweep!

Marrying the chimney sweep industry with years of business experience has been a gift to the area as Robbie and Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service are well regarded for the integrity they bring to every job. If you have any doubts, take a quick look at the testimonial page, or for that matter, any local testimonial site in and around town. You will quickly realize that Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service should be your chimney company of choice in the area.

If you ask his customers why Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service has continued to grow year after year even in a down economy, they’d tell you it’s because of the way they are treated. Robbie would like that. He is a strong believer in treating people well, no questions asked. But as great a guy as Robbie is, he knows that hiring and training the right people is what will separate his business from all the others. Every person that has been hired spends at least twelve months riding with him and learning a lot more than just the chimney business; they learn the people business.

If you want the most knowledgeable chimney sweeps for your next maintenance call or big fireplace retro-fit or renovation, call Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service. Once you have had the pleasure of working with our professionals, you will call them again; or better yet, refer them to your family and friends.

Our Customers Love Us!

Robbie does a great job with one of the most well run companies we've encountered during our home renovations. He was respectful, professional, friendly, and did great work! Not only that, but he tried to save us money where-ever possible, without cutting corners on the final product. We converted a gas fireplace to wood burning. The original firebox and chimney were ancient and needed a lot of love. Mr. Smokestack attended to every detail with the utmost attention to a well done job. Robbie also took the time to ensure that we understood just what needed to be done, and why, explaining the process and answering any questions. I should also note that the cost was better than expected for the project; and better than could be expected from competing companies (with a better quality of service than others could propose). Thanks again!!
