In 1902, a committee was formed to select a name for the thriving farming community. James Thomas Nowling submitted the name “Pine Level” but it was declined due to a Florida post office already using it. Mr. Nowling was asked to submit a second name and was turned down again due to the name being too long. He was asked to submit yet another name but the Postal Department named the new post office after Mr. Nowling before he was able to submit another name and Mr. Nowling became the first postmaster of Jay . A small group of farmers began a livestock market in 1940 and reached sales of up to $1 million within 10 years.
Oil was discovered here in 1970. The Jay oilfield has approximately 67 oilwells – eleven within the town limits. Royalties from the oil have exceeded $400 million that funded a new city hall, fire department and recreation complex.

Inspections: We employ the 21-point safety inspection, guaranteed to locate any hazard or problems that might cause problems for you or your home.
Installations: We offer professional prefabricated or masonry chimney and fireplace installation. Also, we install ash-dump doors, clean-out doors, wood stoves, and more!
Animal Removal: Just like us, humans critters love chimneys. Raccoons, Squirrels, Bats, and many Birds often find themselves stowing away in fireplaces and chimneys. However, when they get into chimneys, they often get stuck, build a nest, or otherwise cause damage. We have trained our technicians to safely and humanely remove these critters for both their safety and yours. As additional insurance, we offer a standard cap installation to keep them out.
Masonry Repairs: We here at Gulf Coast Chimney Sweep Jay FL are trained to repair masonry: crown repair, flue repair, relining, storm damage, and more!
Water Damage Services: As stated before, water is the archnemesis of your chimney, and they have many encounters along the Gulf Coast. Besides damage to the masonry, water brings along mold and rust. If you see signs of water damage, it is urgent that you call Gulf Coast Chimney Sweep Jay to handle it right.
Creosote Removal: Also explained before, creosote is a real danger to your home. It is the number one cause of chimney fires and can prove harmful even when not ablaze. We will make sure that it is removed without causing harm to you or your home.
Michael & Tim came out for Sootmaster today and what a blessing they were. So friendly, polite and professional. They did an excellent job of sweeping our chimney and repairing the refractor. Left everything very clean. Would definitely use them again. Excellent service!
Called to see if I could get a chimney inspection and I’m thankful I did. We have an older house and we’ve been having issues with odor especially after it rains. We were able to schedule a full repair. The two technicians that showed up on time very helpful and very nice. My wife and I highly recommend Gulf Coast Chimney Sweep.
Excellent customer service and excellent quality. I would like to take Harley and the very helpful technician that came out and gave us a chimney sweep and inspection. We highly recommend this company for anybody in the Pensacola area.
