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.

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.




***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 Jacksonville


They were on time for the estimate. Their proposal was very complete and they had a massive number of references. The day t of the installation they were extremely efficient and they left the yard immaculate. They finished almost in one day( they came back the second day to caulk a piece of replacement soffit.
Overall a very positive experience and the roof looks great!

- Della S.

Called twice to make an appointment for an estimate. Had to leave a message on voice mail both times. A week later, no one has called me back. If you don't need or want the business, be professional and courteous enough to let the potential customer know.I have now signed an agreement with another company who did call back and show up at the agreed upon time.
- J Michael F.

Late in September, Mr.
Jacksonville Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
came to my house to evaluate the problem with my fireplace. He told me he would get back to me with a proposal and did so, He came back to my house on Oct. 7 to go over the proposal. He told me that he had to order the panels and that it would take about two months for the company to deliver the materials and that he need the full amount ($510.00) up front, because the supplier needed to be paid before the materials could be sent. When I told him that I never paid in full before work was done, having been burned in the past, he agreed to accept partial payment ($400). I found Mr.
Jacksonville Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
to be flexible and courteous--I offer this example to demonstrate that he is willing to work with a customer on the subject of payment. He let me know that when the panels came in, he could do the work in a few hours. He was true to his word.

The work was completed on 11/10. I called several times before this date to see what progress had been made in getting the panels. Mr.
Jacksonville Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
always returned my calls, although it took several days before I heard from him when I had called. Since I had paid him $400.00 for the materials, I was a little anxious when I didn't hear back from him on the same day that I called, but in the end he proved to be entirely trustworthy, if a little slow to respond to phone calls. I don't hold him responsible in any way for the slowness of his supplier. When he showed up on Nov. 11, around 9 am, he got right to work. By 11 am he was finished. He was careful not to track soot over the floor (the man even removed his shoes at the door--I was impressed!). He cleaned up the hearth and threw the damaged panels into my trash can for me. I would hire him again and recommend his work strongly.
- Nancy L.

The overall experience was easy from start to finish.

handled everything and made it a point not to disrupt our every day activities as we were still occupying the home while the work was going on. We couldnt be happier.

After installing a new roof three years ago, and after repeated complaints over the persistent leaks around my chimney flashing, the roofing company determined to get rid of me by claiming that the leaks were in the chimney, not the flashing. I chose to verify their claim by having a chimney repair company evaluate the leaks and I found Ash Away on Angie's List. The gentleman from Ash Away was prompt when he arrived to perform the inspection and, after checking both chimneys concluded that, although there could be leaks in the chimneys themselves, that the problem appeared to be the shoddy flashing installation. Ash Away charges $75 for the inspection which is refundable if they perform repairs over $400, yet he was honest about the potential problems and likely cause which could have sent me on my
Jacksonville Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
way back to the roofers. Instead, due to the mold that was forming as well as the worsening damage to the interior of my home, I asked whether he could perform the repairs himself and he said that he could. The next week he returned, on a Sunday nonetheless, and patched the flashing around both chimneys, replaced a part on one of the chimneys, and performed an interior inspection on each. He has asked that, should the leaks return, to contact him and he would return immediately to investigate further. And, he asked that I do not perform the repairs to my walls and ceilings yet, just so that he could make sure that the damage would not recur. It's been two weeks and, to the best of my ability to detect....no leaks! And, as a single woman, I always take great care to evaluate anyone that I allow into my home yet I never felt uncomfortable. And, we had a great conversation about politics, too!I would absolutely recommend Ash Away to my friends and neighbors. The roofing company, well, I'm still not done with them yet.
- Jonna F.

Unlike many contractors, they showed up when they would and did the work they said they'd do. When they came back to do the re-point of the chimney, they didn't do a good job there and charged a little too much. The gentleman who did the initial work, I found to be better at his job but, unfortunately by the time they came back to do the re-point work, he had left the company.

The work and workmanship was very good, but the mortar was not even close to matching. I left a small note to him about it and he didn't even call or acknowledge it. I would say that he has reasonably good workmanship, but not he is not the best when it comes to attention to detail.

Nice guy and very responsive. Got the estimate out quick. Only problem was the mortar was not the same color. I have not heard back yet on the mortar problem.
