“A+++++++++!!! I would recommend Shawn and Kenny to anyone who needs repairs for a fireplace. I dealt with NICE HOME SERVICES (who recommended complete replacement of my fireplace and quoted me 2-3K unit replacement) before calling Shawn to come out and get a second opinion. Kenny came out within 2 days of my call, cleaned and fixed the problem. This is a great company to work with and trustworthy!
Thank you Shawn and Kenny!!!”
~Michelle K.; Washington, DC (Yelp)
Honest, affordable, on time, answers the phone. I called 4 other companies who never called back. These guys were honest about the price and the work which saved me hundreds and avoided damaging my fireplace by maintaining it properly.
~Patrick K.; Annandale, VA (Yelp)
“Shawn the owner received my phone call immediately and within a week promptly came to our house to address our issue with our electric fireplace. He is super nice and amazingly honest! He fixed our fireplace and was thorough, clean and well priced.
~Candice M.; Woodbridge, VA (Yelp)”
Sean … the young man that performed the service was knowledgeable, competent, honest and his service was reasonably priced. Can’t imagine what else would be expected. Great company!
~John B. (Yelp)
“Shawn thank you for fixing my gas fireplace. I will call when it needs a cleaning or any other repairs. Please don’t forget about looking for a remote control for me. Great Company.
~Cher M.; Woodbridge, VA (Yelp)
Phenomenal. Came out within 2 days of my call, and fixed my gas fireplace in one visit.
Turns out the former owner took the remote needed to turn the fireplace off and on – they had the make and model needed on the truck, and it is fully functional now.
The technician, Kenny, was very professional, and cleaned up everything before he left – I’m a very happy customer!
~Diane S.; Fairfax, VA (Yelp)
“We were very pleased with Shawn and Gas Fireplaces by 3. When my 10+ year old gas log quit working, Shawn was able to quickly diagnose the problem as a leaky gas valve and malfunctioning pilot. While he was able to return the log to service, we took his recommendation to replace it. He came back within 2 days of the time that we called and installed a new vented fire log that looks much better than the one it replaced. Shawn was on time, polite, kept the work area clean, charged a reasonable price, deducted the service call cost from my installation bill and gave me a Veteran’s discount. We could not be more satisfied.”
~Denby S.; Centreville, VA (Yelp)
I picked Gas Fireplaces by 3 after checking with 2 other fireplace companies. The response I got from those other companies was typical of what I was expecting, (no parts made anymore for my unit, may have to replace entire unit to the tune of $3000). I read about Shawn and made a quick call, he assured me that it was most probably not a huge issue and parts are available.
He showed up within the agreed upon time window. It took him less than 2 minutes to diagnose my problem as a broken safety switch. I had been trying to fix my fireplace myself for about 2 weeks using advice from the internet. I performed all of the steps mentioned to no avail.
Shawn was nice enough to answer all of questions as I am a pretty involved homeowner. He offered great advice and could not have been nicer. In todays age, service like this is the exception not the rule and I am very grateful to Shawn for imparting his knowledge at a very fair price.
~Paul V.; Bristow, VA (Yelp)
“I called Gas Fireplaces By 3 for a gas fireplace repair. It’s fireplace season and we really can’t use our basement without that fireplace. When I called, Shawn answered the phone. I was shocked and stumbled on my words since I was expecting voicemail. I explained my problem and he told me he was booked solid. Then, he offered to walk me through some trouble shooting ideas. As I described the wiring he explained what to do to further diagnose the problem and how to repair it if indeed the troubleshooting proved his hypothesis. He even offered to Facetime with me! This is incredible service from a man who I just called up out of the blue. Gas Fireplaces by 3 is a good distance from me, but next fall, I will call Shawn to inspect and ready my fireplace for winter. Thank you very much for your time and kindness Shawn. It is much appreciated!”
~Darrol N.; Gaithersburg, MD (Yelp)
Simply Outstanding!!! During a fall cleaning by a local Home Service company my fireplace stopped working properly. They said $950 to fix a faulty gas valve so I decided to seek a second opinion. I gave Shawn a call and he diagnosed the problem in 10 min and had me up and running. It wasn’t a faulty gas valve at all but rather an airflow problem that caused the pilot light to shut off intermittently. $800 savings on top of the fact a new gas valve would not have fixed the problem. Shawn is a true professional and a straight up good guy.
~Gene B.; Alexandria, VA (Yelp)
“Shawn was out to clean and service our gas fireplace today. We’ve lived in our home for eight years and never had it serviced. He showed up on time and was quick to get the fireplace cleaned out. As it had been at least eight years since it had been cleaned, it was plenty dirty, but no mess in the house! When I told him I was planning to paint the brass front, he gave me suggestions on what kind of paint to use and showed me how to remove the parts I wanted to paint to make the job easier and much less messy. I would recommend Shawn in a heartbeat!”
~Sarah E.; Fairfax, VA (Facebook)
I had a gas fireplace that never really worked right since I moved in. Shawn came out promptly upon contacting him and was able to quickly figure out my wall switch was bad. After fixing the switch he cleaned up the fireplace and made it look great. His price was also very reasonable. I’d rather support a small business like this than a large corporation who will just try to find “problems” that you need to pay for replacement parts for. This is a good honest business.
~Andrew L.; Dumfries, VA (Yelp)
“Shawn did an awesome job he was kind honest and professional I had another company come out they were way overpriced he came out and was very efficient and saved me lots of money Thank You Shawn !!! Highly recommended.”
~Chris P.; Manassas, VA (Yelp)
Several years after a rocky installation with another company, I called Shawn for service on my Mendota gas fireplace insert. He was responsive, competent and reasonably priced; a huge difference from the installer! Highly recommended.
~James B.; Annandale, VA (Yelp)
“Shawn is courteous and honest – when another fireplace servicing company said that our unit was leaking, we went to Shawn for a second opinion. He found that the first company was trying to pull a quick one on us and that the unit was in fact fine! Go to Shawn for your fireplace needs!”
~Jeff H.; Springfield, VA (Yelp)
My wife and I are very happy with the quality of Shawn’s work. He certainly knows his fireplaces and we would highly recommend him for your fireplace maintenance needs. Thanks Shawn.
~Fay C. (www.gasfireplaces3.com)
“We just moved to the area in the middle of the winter and the prior owners had not used the fire place for quite a few years. We couldn’t find anyone to come out and check to see if it was working or HOW to get it to work (we don’t anything about gas fireplaces). Shawn came out and looked at the fireplace, cleaned it up a bit and said he’d come back out after we got gas in the tank. He sure did! He was professional, kind, knowledgable!! Highly recommended!!!”
~Leah S.; Springfield, VA (Yelp)
Shawn was great! After being quoted $900 to replace a part in our gas fireplace, I contacted him for a second opinion. Shawn quickly diagnosed the issue. Our fireplace simply needed to be cleaned (no repair needed, saving me $750). I felt that Shawn was honest and did good work. He also came to my house within 48 hours of contacting him. I would use him again.
~Sara S.; Alexandria, VA (Yelp)
“My fireplace pilot lamp kept going out no matter how many times I lit it. Shawn stopped by, did a few minutes of troubleshooting and discovered a loose wire to the thermocouple. I tested it the next day and it still works fine. Shawn was prompt and professional.”
~Robert K.; Fairfax, VA (Yelp)
The nicest person and best service. Shawn knows his stuff and is very professional and honest. This is a keeper for servicing my gas fireplaces!!
~Adrienne M. (Yelp)
“I highly recommend Shawn for his fireplace services. He is very professional and more importantly very knowledgeable and efficient when it comes to gas fireplace installation. I am thoroughly satisfied with his recent service at my home!”
~Daniel Y.; Fairfax, VA (Yelp)
After our house was struck by lightning, our gas fireplace no longer worked. I found Gas Fireplaces by 3 with an internet search and decided to try them after I couldn’t get an appointment with another fireplace repair company (won’t name here) because they cancelled on me TWICE with the excuse “sorry we don’t have enough business in your area on the day scheduled, so we’re going to go to another area where there is more business today. We’ll call again next week.” SERIOUSLY. Anyways, I called Gas Fireplaces by 3 and spoke with Shawn Corbin, who was able to look at photos of my gas fireplace via text to determine if he could fix it. He came out the next day, had the fireplace running in under an hour, and was courteous and friendly. I am incredibly thankful and will definitely recommend him to my neighbors.
~M. S.; Bristow, VA (Yelp)
“Shawn was on time, friendly, and fast. He cleaned our pilot that had gone out and even cleaned the entire fireplace afterward. He instructed us how to light the pilot if it went out again. Friendly service at a reasonable price. We would definitely call again if we needed additional service.”
~Christiam O.; Lompoc, CA (Yelp)
We had Shawn come out to take a look at our fireplace. He told us beforehand how much it would be and that’s how much it was…no surprise charges. When he came into the house, he took off his shoes and laid a sheet down where he was working, which we really appreciated since we just had our wood floors refinished. He was in and out in no time and had our fireplace not only working, but looking nice and clean as well.
~Danielle M.; Sterling, VA (Yelp)
“I found Shawn and Gas Fireplaces By 3 on Yelp. I’m a landlord that lives abroad and my tenant lives in my home in Alexandria. She texted on Sunday to tell me that the gas fireplace was emitting a gas smell and informed me that they turned off the pilot light. I called my home warranty company who informed me that they do not cover gas fireplace repairs. Thankfully, I found Gas Fireplaces By 3 on Yelp. They had excellent reviews and in some of them, it was noted that Shawn could perform same day service. My tenant called to make an appointment the next day on Monday, and he was able to come out the same day. She said that Shawn was excellent; great communication, calling to confirm the appointment when he was 20 minutes out. He was very clean and respectful of the home. Took his shoes off and laid down a tarp to work on so as not to soil the carpet and within a minute of looking, he knew exactly what the issue was. He was very pleasant and kind. He honored the active duty military discount and gave us $20 off a $150 house call. All around great experience plus he fixed it the same day that my tenant called. A dream vendor to work with. Will definitely keep his information on file if I ever need him again. Highly recommend!!!”
~Maria S.; Alexandria, VA / Puerto Morelos, Cancun, Mexico (Yelp)
Gas Fireplaces By 3 was actually the third place I called. The previous places I contacted were bigger outfits and never called me back. Gas Fireplaces By 3 was fast, friendly, and efficient. He offered to come the very next day (on a Saturday) and provided us a very reasonable estimate. Cleaned and inspected our gas fireplace and got all the white stuff off of the glass. The fireplace looks great now. I plan on calling them every year.
~Aron M.; Alexandria, VA (Yelp)
“We just bought a house in Woodbridge that came with a lazy fireplace. Only the previous owners had turned off the pilot light to save money. I had the instructions, watched 3 videos on youtube, but couldn’t bloody get the pilot to light. I called Shawn who said with the service call it would be about $150 but he could come the next day. I live in BFE, so I understand there is drive time. He showed up, ahead of time, figured out the remote wasn’t working because the batteries were dead – replaced the battery in the remote control, figured out which wall switch turned on the fireplace (we didn’t even know the wall switch existed) lit the pilot light and had everything good to go. Now I can just flip a switch and have instant coziness. Now if it would just stop being 70 degrees in December, I could enjoy the fireplace.”
~Toni R.; Woodbridge, VA (Yelp)
Shawn was late for the appointment, but explained that he was stuck in traffic and apologized. I liked that. Then he proceeded to diagnose the problem and resolve it quickly. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Shawn. He was knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient. I plan to recommend him on our neighborhood newsletter list of preferred vendors.
~Augustine K.; Fairfax, VA (Yelp)
“I have been searching for a gas fire place repair/maintenance service provider for a couple of months. I was not getting good results for our area and decided to look further north. I came across Gas Fireplaces by 3 and read the reviews. I called Shawn Corbin, not knowing if he would come out all the way to Fredericksburg. To my surprise, he said he would be in the area on one weekend and set up an appointment for us. Shawn provided excellent service. He was very thorough with his work and explained everything to us. He was very courteous, polite and on time. I would definitely call him again for our gas fireplace! He was awesome!”
~Emi G.; Fredericksburg, VA (Yelp)
Just had Shawn come out to look at our gas fireplace. This would be our first year using it so we wanted a blower installed. There was a problem with the air mixture that the gas company could not remedy. Shawn was very knowledgable and happy to share that knowledge we us and fixed the problem with no issue. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He is professional, knows his stuff and charges reasonable rates.
~Robin A.; Stafford, VA (Yelp)
“Logs went out Sunday nite before Thanksgiving!!! Searched Monday afternoon for a business to fix them. Cannot believe I ran across this gentlemen’s web site. He fit me in Wednesday afternoon. The guests will have a fire to watch football in an otherwise chilly lower level. Will definitely call Shawn again.”
~Jean M.; Woodbridge, VA (Facebook)
I’ve called several places to get quotes for maintenance and possible repair for two gas fireplaces. Shawn quoted me such a low price that I felt the need to ask for confirmation couple times! I chatted with him a bit a during one of the maintenance, asking him questions and telling him my concerns. He was able to address every one of my questions/concerns without getting too technical that I wouldn’t understand. This is my first time hiring Shawn but with today’s experience, I will definitely ask him to come back when/if needed. Not to mention recommending him to all my friends/family!
~Karen K.; Centreville, VA (Yelp)
“Shawn could have sold us a new blower as ours was making noise, but he told us we didn’t need one after he checked it out and oiled it, so he is very honest. We highly recommend him.”
~Lee U.; Dumfries, VA (Angie’s List)
Excellent service. Ahead of schedule, took the time to explain how the system works. No hard sell. Reasonable service call cost. Will call for all future service.
~Paul S. (Yellow Pages)
“Great experience all the way around with Shawn, nice guy, prompt, and knowledgeable. Gave us some good insight, tips and awesome service. He’s the one to call, trust me. A++++”
~Gary S.; Woodbridge, VA (Yelp)
If you need your fireplace serviced do not hesitate to call Shawn Corbin. He is detailed oriented, knowledgeable, and courteous from the first email to departure from our home. We will definitely use his services again and ensure everyone we know is aware of his A+ service.
~David G.; Washington, DC (Yelp)
“This was A++ service: Quick, friendly, efficient and customer satisfaction. I highly recommend them for your gas fire place servicing needs!”
~Angela L.; Northern VA (Yellow Pages)
Just had Shawn Corbin come out to fix our 20+ old gas fireplace. Shawn was courteous, on time, honest and had us up and running in 30 minutes. He was also very considerate…taking his shoes off before coming in the house and put down a tarp to keep our living room clean. Will definitely use him again and recommend him to all our neighbors.
~Priscilla S.; Lorton, VA (Yelp)
“Our gas fireplace hasn’t worked in 8 or 9 years. Shawn, a.k.a “3”, had it up and running in one day!! He did an awesome job & it looks beautiful! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
~Jessie G.; Manassas, VA (Facebook)
Professional, friendly, nice and caring, timely. We couldn’t be happier having Shawn come work on our fireplaces. We have three gas fireplaces in our house, so it is important for us to find a reliable guy to call when we need maintenance/repair work.
~Katherine B.; Manassas, VA (Facebook)
“Professional, kind, extremely knowledgeable, and efficient. We could not have been happier with the work he did for us. We will most definitely use him again. Thank you!”
~Bridget D.; Manassas, VA (Facebook)
Shawn had come to my mom’s house for a visit, and while there, he asked why wasn’t she using her gas fireplace—and she explained it hadn’t worked for months. She was afraid to turn it on. He said, “let me take a look”… and within 15 minutes had it working like it was new—and my mom hasn’t had a problem with it since then! Thanks again, Shawn!!
