did a great job in repairing my chimney. He completely remodeled my chimney a couple of years ago and did a great job. he is very punctual" and courteous. I have recommended him to many friends and would defiantly recommend his services.

-Colin H.

"Do chimney sweep and checking out every year! Please! don't let this happen to you. We had a party in our townhome in cold winter weather with the doors opened" and air-conditioning on so we could blow out the black smoke that happened when the chimney couldn't do it's job because of negligence. The party was great anyway, but it was still embarrassing. And it was very costly to clean it all up later. And it could have caused a fire.

How to Avoid Chimney Repair Scams

Scams lure homeowners via solicitations, door-to-door sales pitches and ads offering too-good-to-be-true prices.



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.

Industry experts recommend an annual inspection and cleaning as needed, generally every year or two depending on how much use the fireplace gets.

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.




***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.

Chimney Repair reviews in Houston


Of all the service people who have worked on this house since I bought it 2.5 years ago (and that's a LOT),
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
and the people who moved me are the only ones who provided service that was far beyond my expectations.
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
is just in a class of their own. I'm told that they are pricey (I didn't comparison shop because they were so highly recommended, so I'm not sure, but the original repairs they did were not cheap), but just as for the movers that I mentioned, there is a reason that you pay for quality : in the case of
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, it's service people who do continuing education and therefore are aware of the latest technology and who have the highest standards when working in your home.
When they did the original repairs, they had to redo all the mortar inside the chimney and I also had them place a little "hat" damper on top of the chimney. As my house is a 1939 bungalow, the chimney came without any damper/flue, so I was glad that they suggested that solution and I have been very happy with it.
They work with a scanner that provides an image on a computer screen, and they shared all the images with me and showed me exactly what they were doing.
One thing that really sets them apart is the information that they provide. I think the word professional is very overused today, but the person from
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
who has come to my house both times qualifies in the true sense of the word. He can tell you everything that you need to know (and more, if you are interested), and he makes certain that you have all the information that you need before he leaves. This includes how to build fires (not nearly so basic as I thought), not just in general but with specifics that will help you use your individual chimney/firebox to get the best draft, what conditions can cause problems (very long list, some of which I never would have guessed), and different solutions if you find yourself in the middle of a problem.
It goes without saying that they take impeccable care that the inside of the house is completely protected so that everything is as clean when they leave as it was when they arrived.
- Virginia M.

They did good work and both workers were was on time, clean, and wore booties to protect my floors. They were very personable and inspected the chimney very well.

My chimney leaked when it rained.
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
came to my home and he and his coworker performed a water leak detection test on my chimney. They found the source of the leak and returned a few days later to make the repair. We have just had a couple days of good rain and I am pleased to see that the leak has truly been repaired. I was impressed that
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
took the time to find the source of the leak rather than make a list of all potential sources and suggest they all be performed. I was also impressed that
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
came prepared to do the work, with the proper equipment. The water leak detection test was $180 and the cost to repair the leak was $320. Very reasonable. I had already paid another company about $1600 and they never tried to pinpoint the source, rather they created a list of items that they thought might be the source and actually caused the leak to become worse.
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was prompt and professional and more importantly he was honest, trustworthy, qualified and prepared to do the work. I am a very satisfied customer and would highly recommend him to anyone requiring similar type work.
- Rick A.

I had an occasional drip in my fireplace when it rained. Initially, I contacted a roofing company to inspect and they said it was a chimney issue. After research online and
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, I called Lord's Chimney. They came to do an inspection/estimate (I was charged an additional fee for them to bring a 40' ladder, yet they lacked a smaller ladder to reach the top of the chimney from the rooftop). Their estimate was a list of several items (waterproofing brick, mortar repair, chase top replacement, flashing repair) that they suspected might be causing the drip, summing to approx. $10,000. They explained that none of their work would be warranted unless I agreed for them to do all the items on their list. Hmm. I decided to have them seal the flashing, which cost $1600 and now the leak is much worse than before (it went from an occasional drip in the fireplace to water penetrating and staining walls and ceiling). All this after three visits over the course of four weeks.
I did additional research online and saw where some chimney companies perform a water leak detection test to pinpoint the source(s) of the leak. This sounded like a much more logical approach, yet Lord's had never offered me this option. I feel that a firm of this reputation and years of service should be more methodical in their approach to the problem and not insist that all of the items on their list be executed or nothing is warranted. I find it hard to believe that all items on their list were the cause of my occasional drip. This is unprofessional, in my opinion and not what I expected from Lord's. At no point did I feel they were confident in their approach or the work they were performing or in the advice they provided. I would not recommend them.
- Rick A.

Good. They ran a camera up the chimney and identified some cracks that need to be addressed at some point. Our major concern was seeing if squirrels had taken up residence in the chimney and taking steps to evicting them if they had. Fortunately there was no evidence of a nest, so we just had them order and install a chimney cap.
This was the first time we ever used a chimney company (I'm not even sure why we have fireplaces in Houston!) but will definely use them again in the future as the need arises.

- Marty D.

They took one look and told me the fireplace needed to be replaced. They then proceeded to charge me $90 for that bit of information and a bid of $6000 to replace it. I felt that $90 was excessive, considering I'd been quoted $130 to clean the chimney and no services had actually been rendered. I was assured I could apply the $90 to the cost of replacing the chimney, but I have no intention of replacing the chimney at that price. When they were gone, I couldn't quite understand why I'd paid $90 for them to not clean my chimney...
- yocheved D.

These guys were prompt, professional, polite and very thorough. I was worried that it would be messy having my chimney cleaned, but they completed the cleaning in such a way that any mess was easily contained and cleaned up before they left.
- Tracy Ann M.

I found Chimney &
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
Specialists on Angie's List and called to make an appointment. I specifically chose them for two reasons: their Angie's List reviews, and that they had "
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
" in their name, as we have been having issues with birds getting in to our wall through our chimney. Even though I coincidentally called just as the news started reporting a freak cold snap, they still managed to get me scheduled within a couple of business days.
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
arrived punctually, and was exceptionally professional and polite. He was very informative and it was obvious just from speaking to him that he knew what he was about. When I mentioned we had been having a problem with birds getting into our chimney,
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
immediately set out to find the answer to the problem. I know how busy they were, and I wouldn't have been put off if he'd suggested I make another appointment for that particular issue, but he got right to work investigating where the birds might be entering. After searching both our attics, the perimeter of the house, and climbing my multi-level roof to examine the chimney, he was satisfied that they were indeed entering through the chimney. He was able to confirm this by viewing the firebox through a hole I had already cut in my wall to let the last poor unfortunate out. (
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
even put a temporary repair in place for me by screwing a square of thin, flexible metal over the gaping hole so that it wasn't such an eyesore!) All this before he even got to sweep the chimney!
After his marathon investigative session, the sweep itself was pretty anticlimactic. He placed drop cloths in front of the fireplace, and performed the sweep itself quickly and efficiently. He vacuumed out the fireplace, as well as his work area after he was done. He made sure to ask if I had any questions, gave me an estimate for the chimney repairs, and gave me his contact info in case we needed him.
You might think that's where it ends, but wait! There's more! The day after
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
's visit, my husband lit our first fire of the season, and the house slowly filled with smoke. We turned off the gas to the fireplace and let the fire die out while we opened all the windows to air out the house.
I placed a call to Chimney &
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
Specialists the next day and let them know that something was wrong. Within minutes,
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
himself called me. He was very concerned and wanted to know the soonest he could come out. My schedule was iffy that day, but I let him know when my afternoon cleared, and he was out that same evening. After taking a detailed account of what happened, he went through the exact same steps that we had. You can imagine my embarrassment when the smoke lazily curled up the
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
out into the night air. Not a thing wrong with it. I strongly suspect that even though my husband isn't a novice, somehow the flue was not opened all the way.
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was extremely gracious about me wasting his time and in fact, said he was just relieved there was nothing wrong.
I will definitely be using Chimney &
Houston Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
Specialists to do the repair work recommended.
