"Above and beyond my expectations. The tech (
) who came out was polite, professional, pleasant, and obviously experienced in all things chimney and related. " As well as honest. Once a year before getting into cold weather here in oklahoma I have my fireplace checked, cleaned, and get the pilot to the gas logs lit. This was my first experience with
. Have had my gas logs in my fireplace for three years and instead of going ahead and "cleaning" the fireplace as done by a different company (who also charged a lot more)
thoroughly checked out the chimney inside and out and related it did not need to be cleaned. He went on to explain how gas logs are clean burning and don't produce the build up that regular wood burning produces. Something the other companies in the past failed to relate. Something else I didn't expect but was grateful for was that when he went up on the roof checking the cap and outside of the fireplace he reattached some flashing on the top of the chimney that had been loosened by the May 31 tornado. He checked out the gas logs, the gas connection to them and lit the pilot light for me. (Something I normally have to pay for the gas company to come out and do.) Have already used the fireplace a couple of times when the temps got down to freezing and it has worked perfectly. A great company as evidenced by a great employee. Thank You!

"He checked to make sure the chimney did not need cleaning. He went up on the roof and secured the rain collar around the chimney, caulked it and caulked around the base of the chimney." He was extremely knowledgeable and I learned a lot about chimneys, fireplaces, gas logs and glass doors. I like it when a contractor explains what they are doing, as well as hearing their suggestions on how I can improve my house. He also showed me the best way to light my gas logs, which the person who installed them (different company) did not do.

arrived at the specified time, asked about our chimney needs and concerns, and went right to work. He made sure we understood the time frame in regard to his" lunch time, purchase of a part, and return to the job. I greatly appreciated this, as I did not have to spend the whole afternoon waiting on him. He is very professional. He made me aware of what he was going to do, what the charge would be, and if the service was needed now or could be done at a later date.
's charges were more than fair for the work done. He took care to leave the work area clean. I would recommend
, and use him again.

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.

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.

I talked to one of the staff at
Oklahoma City Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
and Masonry to inquire about the price of having our chimney cleaned. The estimate provided seemed reasonable, so an appointment was scheduled. Two technicians,

and

, arrived on the day of the scheduled appointment.

They were on time and started work immediately. The technicians were polite, efficient, and very knowledgeable. They were able to complete the job quickly and were very neat, always making sure to protect the carpet from soot and ashes. While performing the inspection, the technicians noted two problems with the existing fireplace and chimney. The technician provided an estimate for repairing the problems, indicating that they could do the repairs at our convenience, if we so chose.

I was pleasantly surprised by the

Like another member, they called to see if they could come early. They showed up on time and got to work immediately. One guy got on the roof and swept while the other guy was in the fireplace with a giant vacuum. The guy who worked in the house took his shoes off in the doorway and laid down protective coverings on the floor and around the fireplace.

They pointed out some issues my chimney has and gave me an estimate for those repairs, such as installing a new crown. This was expected as I have been having problems with water coming down the chimney and into the fireplace. They identified that the crown was the problem and did so before I could tell them that I was having problems with it leaking.

Will call them back to fix crown.

The only problem I had with them was getting their front office to respond to emails, phone calls and coordinate the job with their workers. It took weeks just to get a start date. That happened only when the phone one was answered by the person that eventually did the work. I've been happy with every other facet of the job. The work was done in accordance with national standards. Their warranty was in writing (0 yrs) and covers material and labor. The cap was covered by a life time warranty.

Really good experience. Just as you would want any service to be handled. I noticed the problem. Checked Angie's List. Found a recommended local firm. Called

He seemed honest, but I thought the price of cleaning the dryer vent which was the same price as the chimney, was pretty high. He also was messy with the dryer vent lint- he blew out into the back yard and didn't bother to pick it up. The trash can in the basement where the dryer is, was on the floor and I don't know why he couldn't have picked that up either.

30 minutes late. I had to call twice to find out where he was. He was angry when he arrived, told me there was nothing he could do for my fireplace and wouldn't inspect the chimney. He did suggest, he could charge me a lot of money to pull the historic brick fireplace out of my 1916 home and put a freestanding
Oklahoma City Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
on the room. Unprofessional & angry. Then when I told him no thanks and that I couldn't recommend him, he slowly left my house and his foot was in my door. I called my husband as he left.
