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!


Historically the “busy season” begins shortly after Labor Day and runs straight through the holidays and into February. Scheduling an inspection and/or chimney cleaning during this time frame may push the appointment date out by two to four weeks. We do however try to accommodate true emergencies at this time to the best of our ability. Outside of the “busy season” time frame an appointment can generally be made within a week, sometimes sooner depending on our schedule.


  • It is best if the owner or representative is present at the time of inspection for an on site review of the post inspection report.
  • If the owner can not be present, arrangements for a key or arrangements to meet a caretaker will be necessary to enter the home for the interior inspection
  • We will confirm your appointment day and time 24 hours in advance of the appointment day.
  • It is best to leave the best number that you can be reached at (cell phone or work) for the confirmation call.
  • If we are unable to confirm your appointment within the 24 hour period, we will have to reschedule your appointment as soon as we can contact you.


Payment is required at the time of delivery of our services and/or products unless otherwise specified on a written proposal.

TOP TO BOTTOM accepts all checks, cash and all major credit cards. A credit card number can be taken prior to your scheduled appointment if you are unable to be at the site for payment on completion.
