Chimneys

If you have a wood-burning fireplace, be sure to have it cleaned and inspected regularly to reduce the risk of fire. But be careful who you hire because chimney-repair scams are common.

These scams lure homeowners via phone solicitations, door-to-door sales pitches or ads offering too-good-to-be-true prices.

Chimney sweep and fireplace inspection, cleaning
Chimney Sweep, Chimney Repair

Regular chimney inspection and cleaning helps prevent fires from creosote buildup and saves money on repairs. Here’s a look at what’s involved and the costs.

A chimney inspection covers every part of the structure, interior and exterior. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member David G. of Portland, Oregon)
Chimney Repair, Chimney Sweep

Chimneys, fireplaces and vents need to be inspected at least once per year. Even an unused chimney needs to be checked for possible animal nests or damage.

Angie's Answers

?
?

Most all professional chimney sweeps now utilize the National Fire Protection  211 Standard for chimneys, fireplaces , Vents and solid fuel-burning appliances for chimney inspections, which determines when and whether he has to access the roof.

There are 3 levels of inspection  The most commonly performed are Level 1 and level 2  are listed:

Level 1            Done as Annual Inspection

                      Routine cleaning of the flue

                      Direct replacement of a similar appliance

Level 1 inspection is recommended for a chimney under continued service under the same conditions with the continued use of the same appliance.

IN A Level 1 inspection, your chimney service tech should examine the *READILY ACCESSIBLE portions of the appliance and the chimney connection. HE will be looking for basic Soundness of the chimney structure and flue as well as the basic appliance installations and connections. HE will also Verify that  the chimney is free of obstruction and combustible deposits.

* Readily accessible Means that no special equipment is required to gain such access, ie.Ladder

 

LEVEL 2            Upon sale or transfer of a property

                       After an operating malfunction or an external event is likely to have caused damage to the chimney

                        Addition or removal of one or more connected appliances, or the replacement of an appliance withone of a different type, a different input rting or a different efficiency.

                        Prior to relining or replacement of the flue lining

 

Level 2 insp. are required when any changes are made to the system. Changes can include a change of Fuel Type, changes in shape or material in the flue,Replacement or addition of an appliance of a disimilar type, input rating or efficiency. Building fires, chimney fire or other seismic events as well as weather events or obvious construction defects would be indicators that a level 2 is warranted.

 

Level 2 includes everything in a level 1 PLUS the *Accessible portions of the chimney exterior and interior including attic, crawl spaces and basements. it addresses proper clearances from combustible in accessible locations.There are no speciality tools required to open or access doors, panels, or coverings during a level 2 insp.  The level 2  insp should also include the visual inspection by video scanning equipment or by other means in order to examine the internaql surfaces and joints of all the flue liners inside the chimney structure. No removal or demolition or any permrnantely attached portions of the chimney or building structure or finish shall be required in a level 2 insp.

*ACCESSIBLE means if you can get to it with special equipment do it but you dont have to take apart anything for said access. Use of ladders and cameras just no demolition.

 

LEVEL 3  SEE NFPA 211 STANDARD FOR DETAILS

 

***THE REAL ANSWER to this question lies with the accessibility of the top of the chimney and roof type.  Most professional sweeps want to examine up close the top of the chimney for cracked masonry crowns , which is very common, Flashing issues, top view down flue, and for prefab chimneys to insp the condition of the Chase cover and cap.

Note that the use of a special tool (ladder) to gain access to the chimney is under a level 2 inspection, which can be additional costs since it is a much more thorough inspection.

It is possible to sweep and do a level 1 insp. without accessing the roof. 

 

Also most professional sweeps have equipment that allows us to sweep the chimney with a rotary system that is operated from inside at the fireplace opening and achieve a much better cleaning than pushing brushes down from the top and without getting on the roof. We also video scan the flue from the hearth so the homeowner can be a part of that inspection or "chimney-oscopy". They see the live action of the top of the chimney and conditions that exist inside their system so when they get their report they know they are not some stock pics that could be used to sell repairs but the actual pics of the conditions they viewed in their system. And we do not have to access the roof.

If the chimney access requires multiple ladders or is a "brush with death", there could be extra cost, and the sweep would make an onsite decision regarding the ability to safely reach the top of the chimney or have to use a lesser option of binoculars or rely on experience to determine whats going on up top based on visible symptoms,  if access is too dangerous or not possible.

 

So don't discount a sweeps knowledge or ability on whether he gets on the roof or not. Check him out on referral sites , company web site, credentials, training and experience. Get referals and check on liability insurance and you should be able to find a sweep that can meet your need. If you are in North Carolina check us out at ClassicChimney.com.

Great service. Two knowledgeable individuals came and did the inspection full of professional photos taken right there to explain repairs and other suggestions. Work done cleanly and quickly. Will use them yearly from now on.

Went very well. They had to order the cap but it was a really odd size so that is understandable. Guys were very friendly and did a great job - would definitely use again.

The service was awesome the office was very responsive and returned my online message and called me back quickly. I made an appointment for 11AM Saturday morning and the tech was right on time. He was very professional and an all around nice guy. I don't normally write reviews, but the service was great, and I made another appointment with the company to get an estimate on some other services.

was excellent and I would definately use again. In fact, he will be doing my indoor fireplace once I source the material. Very professional and most importantly my brick stairs look completely new. I was concerned about mortar spilling onto the bricks but that was not the case.

I had to go out of town, so they were great on working with me on scheduling while I was away although they didn't want to make an appointment until they received a signed contract -- this despite the fact that I have been their customer for over 15 years.
Repair of chimney area did not work. I had been told it was one of two issues, and they would try the nail pops first. When I called to advise that still had a leak, I was told it would cost another $200-300 to try option 2. I had not been told there would be another charge if option 1 didn't work. Was going to replace roof so went with another contractor.

I purchased a Groupon for the gutters to be cleaned.
Charlotte Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was out in a few days (as soon as the rain stopped). I told them that I suspected a possible small leak because there is a very small amount of discoloration in the ceiling in one room. They guy who came asked me to show him from the outside whereabouts I suspected the leak so that he could double check that area.
In very short time he had all of the gutters cleaned and there was NO mess to be found anywhere after the job was done. He also said that there is no leak which was nice to hear. I know that there are dishonest companies that might tell you otherwise just to sell you a new roof. They were very honest.
He also bought paint specifically to match my chimney cap and showed the paint to me before applying it to be sure I was happy with the color. I was, so he proceeded. It looks SO much better now.
The nicest part was that the owner,

called me afterwards to be sure that I was happy with the work and to give me a report on the findings. (The guy on site had already done that, but it was also nice that the owner followed up.)

also emailed me the same information and sent pictures of the before and after of my gutters. Since I'm definitely not crawling up there to check, this was a nice bonus. Overall, I would definitely use these guys again.

, tech, showed up on time (after I did receive a call from office that he was running late from an earlier appt.) and went right to work. I was stuck on a conference call in the other room and

inspected and swept the chimney without interrupting me at all. Once off the phone, I was able to talk more to him. He was very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. He noticed that we did not have a chimney cap installed and offered to put one on for us. He had no issues climbing on the roof while carrying a separate ladder in order to reach the top of the chimney to put on the cap. Everything was quick clean and worry free. Excellent service. Will definitely be using this service again for any chimney needs.

When the tech got ready to leave, he had some suggestions for future repair. They were very minor but he did not suggest that he go ahead and perform these repairs for an additional fee. I would have preferred that he did because my husband did not think to ask him and we will not likely call them out for another service call.
