"They arrived on time, did a good job, cleaned up carefully, and were a pleasure to deal with. The estimates they gave--of both the time it would take and the cost--were" very accurate. They were very professional. I would definitely call on them again, and I highly recommend them.

"
was very communicative from start to finish. He gave us a quote back in the fall but then we waited to do the work. When we called him" this spring, he came back out to look at the job, stuck to his original price, and was in great communication about when he would be able to get it done. On the appointed day, he came to do the work, was very professional, and did an extra small job sealing a big gap in our back stairs for now additional cost. He put some supports on the new concrete and came back late the next night to take them away. Also called to follow up to see if we were satisfied. The stairs look great. I would definitely use
again!

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.

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.

they came early when they learned they had a cancellation of another customer, did their work quickly and efficiently, educated me on what I had to have done and what could wait...highly recommend them!

I have a shared driveway so it was critical that the work - which required blocking the driveway - be done as quickly as possible.
Providence Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
send a full crew who blew through a pretty big job in under two days. They did a nice job with the re-pointing and even were able to handle 'add-on' jobs, such as bricking in an old garage window, that I mentioned on the main day of the work. They were on time, polite, and cleaned up after themselves, including washing out the driveway.
I did initially have a small problem with the job - I had asked for some hooks to be installed on the chimney for a trellis. It's not something they normally handle and I guess the instructions confused them. However, when I wasn't happy with the results, they quickly offered to come back and re-do the work to my specs at no extra charge.
It looks great now! I would recommend them and funnily enough so does the shop I bought my gas fireplace from!

Overall this project went very well compared to other contractors I have worked with. They were prompt with returning phone calls and responsive to questions. New roof looks great and they cleaned up very well after. Entire job was done in less than 8 hours. I would highly recommend for a new roof.

our fireplace damper wasn't working. the first place we called came to look and said it was broken and couldn't be fixed because it was too old. they said we would need a new one and the cost would be $700. I called

and he came over the next day, looked at it and said all it needed was a good cleaning, it was not broken, and now everything works! His team was clean, proficient, and just great.

We had set an appointment time, which was missed. He called an hour later to say he was running late and would "probably" be there in 30 minutes. He never showed up and never called again. If he can't succeed on an appointment time, how well can he actually deliver the work with a timely manner? Very unprofessional.

They scraped the entire 4000 square foot house (two stories) primed and painted it with great attention to detail. Removed all the deteriorating coating on foundation (50'x26') and recoated with proper material. Awesome Job. Great price. **UPDATE** One year later it still looks good. I found a relatively small, out of the way area that had been primed but not painted. I called Joy (Yovanni) and he and his crew came and painted it free without any questions within a few weeks. Great service, honest guy.

Work took 5 months. It started in November and ended in April (mostly due to rainy/cold weather). Poor workmanship was not checked. Problems included unpainted molding installation, roof leak, poorly flashed chimney, poorly flashed misc areas, roof vent and soffit were wavy/not straight, hundreds of nails around house foundation, difficult communication, general sloppy appearance. To Cliff's credit, I provided photos to Cliff and the foreman on the job was fired. Cliff brought another crew in and repaired much of the problematic work for free. Despite his agreement to perform the work--the last of the work has never been completed (tenants stained ceiling, tenants unpainted trim.)

This man is incredible. Honest, friendly, knowledgeable and proactive with a whole lot of years of experience. My chimney has leaked ever since I bought the house and I have been mislead by multiple providers who continued to repair, or said they repaired, an unsafe chimney. I considered tearing down

and installing a power vent but was convinced to give it one more try. I can now say, with confidence, that my chimney is solid and WILL NOT LEAK!
