"I was pleased with all aspects of this experience. I do want to share this with you concerning my first experience using Angies List to find a chimney service." I am a widow and a senior , so when I needed these repairs I want help to find
honest, dependable company. I chose Chimney Pros of
City from your list. Long story short they were neither, I was out $375.00, which I could not afford. When I called you all you told me was he was no longer on your list. So I am very disappointed in YOU because I truly was trying to avoid what happened by joining your service. I would recommend

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.

John Pilger of the highly rated Chief Chimney Services in Smithtown, N.Y., says shady chimney companies target homeowners in his area.

How to avoid chimney repair scams

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.

The exposed portion of your chimney receives more weather abuse than any other masonry on a building, says Bard. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Jane L. of Philadelphia)
Chimney Repair

By paying yearly attention to your chimney crown to catch issues early, you can save yourself costly chimney repairs and extend the life of your chimney.

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.

He fixed some of the minor issues and also cleaned it. We had to wait for the parts to come so it took multiple trips, but he was very timely once things were set in motion. He was very prompt with his work and we appreciate what he did for us.

It might have been my fault for not getting clear expectations, so I may use them again, not sure. My hope was that I could start using my fireplace for the first time this year (bought the house 5 years ago), but after he was done he told me that my chimney cap needs to be replaced to be safe (there is a tree growing out of it) -- to the tune of $800, but I don't think he went up on the roof at all. They had cancelled his original appointment because of bad weather, but not sure why since he didn't even get up there (unless he did it when I wasn't looking, which doesn't seem possible since it is WAAAAY up there).
He also told me my chimney was already pretty clean (must have been done by the previous owner before I bought it).
Also, he could not tell me how to operate the gas starter -- there is a gas connection in the floor but no shut-off valve, so not sure how it ever worked. I would have thought he could go into the basement and investigate, but he said he didn't do that... That I would have to talk to a plumber. Again, I guess I should have asked the scope of the job.
I just feel like I wasted the $133, probably my own fault, though. I certainly don't have the $800 at the moment :-( so, I'm disappointed.
He was very professional and tidy, however.

Technician arrived on time, but was a new hire. Work was done as expected, but when the inspection was complete, there were delays because the technician had to contact his supervisor by phone to discuss the evidence found in the inspection. Once this was done, there was a recommendation made to have work done on the chimney to bring it into working order. However, there was no quote done at the time. I had to make a call a few months later to schedule another inspection from someone who would be able to make the quote. Overall, not a big deal, just a minor hassle. I was happy with the work performed and I would work with them again.

This cleaning was done as part of closing on our house. They cleaned the chimney but then suggested additional work for another $600 and I felt pressured to do it. I understand this was to bring the chimney into even better condition., but declined anyway. He then inspected the top of the chimney for cracks so we spent another $300 for that repair. The bill was by far greater than expected. I felt they should have been more understanding of the only reason for the service and not to try to up sell services.

Took a bit longer than expected, but was well worth the extra time involved in order to get exactly what I wanted. His team was extremely clean and had all proper equipment to keep dust particles contained.

QUOTING:
After foundation work last year, we had a brick wall that was collapsing on the front of our house. It wasn't just an eye sore but a serious hazard as well.

promptly responded to my request for a quote, worked me into his schedule, removed the entire wall safely, and rebuilt the wall making it look like it was never damaged. His professionalism and willingness to answer all of my questions was superb.
WORKING:

and the crew were prompt to do the work, while working within my schedule. They took great care to clean up after themselves. And while they were here, they were the most professional crew I've had work outside my home. The finished product is beautiful! I have neighbors who hired other guys to do the work; however, nothing looks matched and you can see bold lines running through their masonry.

OVERALL:
I have already hired him to do additional brick repairs on other areas of my house. I will happily suggest him to anyone in need of brick repair. The quote was not the cheapest; however, I strongly believe he is the best value!

I left a voicemail on a Friday morning. I had had trouble with my cell service that day so I called back the next day when I hadn't heard from anyone just to make sure they got the message. He told me he thought he had called me back (he hadn't) and we setup time late the following week. We weren't in any major rush, so the timeline worked for me. We agreed that he would call my husband on Thursday to setup an exact time on Friday. Friday morning came and went and so did early afternoon. I called and left another voicemail at that point because my husband wasn't going to be home everyday to meet with him. We didn't hear back from him for another couple of weeks, which just tells me he doesn't need my business. I already had it scheduled with another provider at that point anyway.

It was easy to schedule visits for the estimate and eventually to have the work done. The crew was punctual and polite. They were conscientious, cleaned up after themselves, and did the agreed upon work well. The final cost was the same as the initial estimate.

was the middle of the three estimates I received. Even though they weren't the lowest cost, I was very satisfied with the service they provided.
