About Us


TOP TO BOTTOM CHIMNEY SERVICE, INC. was established in 1990 by the owner, Doug Sherman, while
serving on the full time ranks of the Yarmouth Fire Department. After continually responding to chimney
fires and carbon monoxide incidents in town, it was evident that most of these situations could have
been prevented with regular chimney inspections and maintenance.

Providing an additional preventive service in the community only made sense, which prompted the
creation of TOP TO BOTTOM CHIMNEY SERVICE, INC. With over twenty years of firefighting and
chimney sweeping experience, you can be confident that your family’s safety, and protection of your
home, is at the forefront of every inspection, cleaning and repair.


As you browse through our site you’ll find that TOP TO BOTTOM is fully equipped and prepared to respond, protecting your family and property from the potential of chimney fires and other chimney related hazards. As a rooted Cape Cod company, we continue to strive toward carrying a thorough and professional service into each and every home, leaving you confident that you made the right choice. Through the years we have learned what products work best in protecting and preserving our chimneys here on the Cape. This knowledge helps us to help you in solving the chimney related problems that are unique to our area.

Since its birth in 1990, TOP TO BOTTOM has serviced literally thousands of Cape Cod chimneys (one at a time). We hope that this testimony in itself will show you how this has made us “WHO WE ARE” so we can better serve you TODAY!
