"
, from the San
branch called before arriving and arrived on time. My wife watched him as he meticulously went about" his work. He discovered a tennis ball was lodged in the flu and removed it. He cleaned the entire flu and used drop clothes and a vacuum that prevented any debris from entering our home. He discovered minor mortar cracks inside the fireplace that he offered to fix for an additional $50, to which my wife agreed. He inspected the gas fire starter unit in our fireplace and determined it to function properly. Even though our chimney has a spark arrestor, he recommended we consider installing a chimney cap that will prevent water from entering the flu and damaging the interior of the chimney.

"I called
and left a message.
quickly returned my call. An animal had managed to go down my chimney through the cap."
gave me options to prevent that problem from happening again. He was very honest and helpful. He got me an appointment during the busy holiday weekend. He also did a chimney sweep and inspection so that I could have peace of mind when I use my fireplace.
was punctual, professional and thorough. He also answered questions and offered tips. I will definitely call him again in the future for chimney issues and next time to clean the dryer vent.

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.

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.

I couldn't be more pleased. We discussed with
San Antonio Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
the problem we were having with leakage around the fireplace flashing and on the flat patio cover roof. He explained how the flashing should have been installed . We chose to also re-do the patio cover roofing while we were doing the flashing re-do.
We encountered a problem when the installers somehow broke through the patio cover decking. Integrity quickly ordered new decking and installed it the next day.

We bought the house in April of 2014 and weren't sure if the chimney had ever been used before. It looked spotless but we wanted to be sure and hired
San Antonio Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
to come out and inspect. His special offer was just too good to pass up. When he came out to inspect the chimney, he told my wife the fireplace had never been used before. He felt bad about us having already pre-paid for the service so he gave us a credit. He gave us a credit and will be back out in the Spring to inspect the chimney after we use it this winter. What an awesome company!
Needless to say - we will be using

I asked them to fix the hole in the chimney from woodpecker. He said this deal would not cover the hole since it was not technically the roof. He charged me an additional amount to repair. He did inspect the roof and everything looked great!

Arran brings an incredible amount of intensity to the job. I observed the number of hours he worked and heard the sounds of the job being consistently addressed. If Arran took a break over the many hours of his repair I did not observe it. The portion of our chimney that needed specialized attention he provided a contractor that a USAA adjuster rated the next day as “an incredibly good job.” I am very confident that all the follow-up work Arran did was of the same caliber. We have rentals in addition to our home, and I thought getting this professional level of work done was no longer available. I could not be more impressed!

, the mason, 20 yrs ago. He was knowledgeable and helpful in recommendations about the fireplace. Even with his tight schedule, he is going to try and work us in. One of his employees did the two hour job the next date. Great Job!

Bubba came to our home and gave us a bid for the work we needed done. He arrived the day of impending rains just to put a new cap on the chimney so there would not be any leaks. He came the next day to repair the mortar and screen. He was pleasant and his work was exemplary. We would highly recommend Bubba. He had done extensive flagstone walkways, etc. for the previous owner of our home and after 10 years, the work he did still looks great.
