After another contractor messed up very badly taking our chimney down I called Wm. Townshend.  They came and fixed the problems quickly and for a fair price and were a pleasure to deal with.  I highly recommend them.

Hello. Thanks again for being so quick and professional. You’re staff did a great job. I spoke with my neighbor about the chimney and she’s aware of the problem. She has your number and you will be getting a call.


I am very impressed by your professionalism. You said what you will do and got it done without me being there. I am very impressed and will forward you info to others. If you are wondering why? I had some really crappie contractors in the pass year. Thanks again


I can’t thank you enough Bill 🙂 The woodstove works great. It’s so nice to have heat again in this part of the house!

Bill did the job! sticking to his quote despite difficulties beyond his control. A chimney master that has the experience to deal with problems older homes can surprise you with. Thanks Bill, I am recommending you to my friends and family.

Bill and team members Mark and Frank did a wonderful job rebuilding our chimney… the chimney was previously repaired years earlier after it was struck by lightning… the insurance company’s contractor did a poor job… they also didn’t even bother matching the brick… they used red bricks instead of yellow…It’s my opinion, it is best to have your chimney repaired by a chimney specialist, not a general contractor… jack of all trades, master of none.

Wm. Townshend LTD. matched the brick perfectly to blend in with the rest of the 62 year old house. The crew were efficient and tidy and completed the job in 2 days. Free estimate, no deposit, 10 year guarantee, at a very reasonable price. Once in a while you come across a company that still has honesty and integrity.

BIG thanks Wm. Townshend LTD.!

Hi Bill, thanks for the nice chimney job at 74 5th street.

William Townshend

Your team was amazing! Full chimney rebuild. Home was built in 1989 and you found brick that matched the house to a T! Just great workmanship. Thanks again.


Hi Bill, just wanted to thank you for the terrific job you and your crew did on our chimneys. The new liner worked…no longer getting smoke in the basement!

Thanks again Bill,

Barry Tatchell

Not enough people take the time to thank companies, only to bash them. Townsend people were very professional and did and exception job. I personally thank Bill, Mark and Joshua for the TLC they put into their work..This company still has pride in it’s work..Will/Would suggest to all..

My Experience with John Townshend was fantastic

When we heard our water heater had to be replaced and had no hot water, we were very concerned. Since our heater was so old and the work done to it was over 15 years ago, the work around it was no longer at code. We not only required a chimney liner but also tear out before our new water heater could be installed. I called John Townshend on an emergency call and right away I had a return call and same day service for estimate and repairs to begin. This was so important to us because we have a 1 year old in the house. The workers were polite, professional and did a wonderful job. It was done in a timely fashion and there was no mess which made it a pleasant experience!

William Townshend comes from the family of chimney specialists that are well known in Etobicoke and William himself mainly operated in Scarborough until recently when he moved to Burlington. I was lucky enough to get him to rebuild my two chimneys on a two story house in Oakville His quote was competitive, he knows the work, carries the required licences, provides no-nonsense concise explanations, gives 10 year warranty. He chose the color of the bricks to match my 28 year old house to perfection, demolished the old chimneys without damaging the roof or anything else on the property and rebuilt the two chimneys: one with existing ceramic lining and the other with existing steel lining. I am an engineer and very demanding of contractors I hire. Out of four quotes I took William was the most competitive, no nonsense and completed the project with perfect quality. Highly recommend.

Michael Duberstein

Dealt with William to rebuild a chimney which was knocked over. William and his crew were amazing they are people who are dedicated, friendly and most of all good at their work. They showed up exactly when I was told they would and the job got done perfectly . Pleasure to work with them and William. would recommend any day , A+ .

I got a Red tag from Direct Energy and had 45 days to fix the problem. A faulty chimney made it difficult for a Liner to be Installed. Most companies couldn’t handle the job including Direct Energy. William Townshend gave the most reasonable quote as well as hepful advice and did an absolutely fantastic job in less than 2hrs. I’ll definitely recommend him (100%).
