"We initially called
for a chimney cleaning as we just move into the home and were not sure of the chimney condition. Upon inspection,
" let us know the chimney was in good shape and did not need to be cleaned. He took a look at the firebox upon my request as the mortar was crumbling in some spots. He was very flexible in rescheduling a time to complete the work once he had the appropriate materials. He was punctual and completed the work in a timely manner. I will use
again for future chimney maintenance.

"Everything went perfectly. Their office called the day before to tell me when they'd arrive. Two men arrived on time. They worked very professionally, finished" in the time they had said it would take. They cleaned up everything before they left. The pointing up job is excellent, looks authentic, mixing in with the old bricks. They were also very pleasant and informative. You couldn't ask for a better service. You never know beforehand, but now I know--these guys are

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.

Chimney Repair reviews in Ventura

I called Norblum based on great reviews I'd read--I had my fingers crossed they'd have someone available right away and thankfully they did. I asked for a rough estimate over the phone and the very nice woman I spoke to said that they charge by the time spent, rather than the job--plumbing ain't cheap, but I appreciate having an idea of what you're going to pay before the plumber even sets foot in the door. She was able to send

out the following day--I was given a two hour window of time (9-11) that he'd arrive.

called around 9:50 and said he was just finishing up a job in Burnsville and that GPS said about 25 mins away. He showed up about 20 minutes later and got right to work. Super nice guy and very professional--gave me good advice about what kind of garbage disposal to look for in the future when it comes time to replace it. He was done in about an hour and a half. He also loved my dog (who also loved him!) and we chatted about dogs for a couple minutes after he was done and I had paid. We are brand new homeowners so have never had to call a plumber for anything before--Norblum is our new go to!

Went very well. Showed up on time as scheduled. Prepped area for cleaning, keeping everything protected and clean in the house. Worked efficiently and quickly. Provided detailed report on inspection and items that needed to be addressed. Items that were needing attention quotes were provided, but were not a hard sell, provided for future action at our prompting. Would use this company again.
