Gino C. Barbati Chimney Sweep, Inc. has been proudly practicing the “art” of sweeping chimneys for over 20 years. After graduating high school, Gino C. Barbati, Sr. worked with a company doing custom carpentry restoration to historic homes. It was during this time that he was subcontracted by a chimney sweep to do repairs to a home. Gino quickly realized the need for qualified chimney sweeps and immediately opened a part-time business in West Chester, Pennsylvania. In the late-1980s, Gino’s operation had expanded, so he moved it to its current facility in Downingtown, Pennsylvania.


Gino C. Barbati, Sr. believes that chimney sweeping is an art – one that he takes very seriously.

“Like anything else, things are more complicated the more thorough you are on the job. You can drive yourself crazy finding little things that need to be done OR you can just do what HAS to be done and save the rest for later. Many ‘sweeps’ will go in, do a sweep of the obvious and then leave; they don’t take the time to walk through someone’s home and show the homeowner everything that is affected when a fireplace, wood stove, furnace or other related product isn’t properly maintained.”

Gino C. Barbati, Sr. Chimney Sweep does things the proper way.

Gino’s ultimate goal is to be YOUR “Sweep for Life.” Your home is worth the best, so why settle for anything less?
