"These guys were life savers! We were in the process of buying a bank owned property with an FHA loan. It was a requirement of the loan that we get a new roof. However, the bank was" so overwhelmed with foreclosures that they just couldn't get it down. Through our Realtor we finally got the bank to use the roofer we had had out earlier in the process but the bank would pay the bill. These guys came out 48 hours after being contacted and got the whole job done in about 2 working days. They had no problems dealing with our 1959 house, either! I don't know what we would have done without them. And at such a reasonable price! Thank you so much!

"Fireplace & BBQ Service built the frame for our fireplace at their place of business. When they did the installation it went very smooth and quick. They did a beautiful job on everything." We had some minor problems at first with the tiles on the backsplash falling off, however they came over and fixed it with no cost to me.

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.

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)

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)

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.

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.

was a pleasant surprise. He's originally from Chicago so he seemed to really know his way in and around a chimney. We asked him a million questions and he answered knowledgeably and honestly and gave us several options for what to do with our fireplace with pros and cons for each option.
We thought his demeanor was very professional. He's a straight shooter with a confident way about him and he made us feel secure about the decisions we made with our fireplace.
He agreed to come out on a Sunday evening when it was convenient for us and he stayed a good 30-45 minutes. He charged us $75 for the inspection though we felt it was more than an inspection given that he took down the plaster, cleaned and gave us recommendations and answered our many questions.
We live in the Downtown area in an older home. He rode his bicycle over from a few miles away to save gas but also drives a work truck for jobs outside of the Downtown area. He's clean-cut and presents himself well. We believe he may know more than many of the other chimney services we called for help.
We were recommended to him by our historic neighborhood association. We appreciate his candor, knowledge and massive help. Well worth the $75 inspection fee and we will definitely call on him in the future for our chimney maintenance needs.

told me what they would be doing and that he would be taking before & after pictures. They removed debris from the roof as promised and secured quite a few loose roof tiles.

showed me the pictures, and then emailed them to me, which showed how many loose roof tiles I had due to the wind. They also said that they would have to replace three roof tiles and that a workman would have to come another day to do that. When I asked

how much extra that would be, he said that they would replace up to three at no additional charge and that replacing the tiles and the additional service visit were included.
I highly recommend this company, as they were prompt, professional and ethical in not trying to gouge the customer!

have put my mind at ease after finding our roof wasn't in as bad a shape as I expected after decades of neglect, but did repair or replace damaged shingles and sealed potential leaks around roof top structures. They were friendly, professional, prompt, and very efficient. I am reassured our ceiling will remain dry for future seasons. When it comes time to replace our aging roof, we will definitely call

The company was very responsive. Service was performed the day after the estimate. It hasn't rained since the repair so I don't know whether the repair was successful.
Hoping for the best.
